I actually am on the fence about this book. I love the concept and the characters and this author is talented enough to pull it off well. The problem is I have no idea what's going on. I mean their are some strange things happening and causing lots of problems for her and her family. There is plenty of action and it keeps you turning pages because this author is that good. However even after reading the book and the free prequel I am not sure where this story is going and why. The crazy thing is ...more

Waters kept me on edge and intrigued throughout this story
The world building was detailed and intricate - the characters were complex and I wanted more
There is so much she can do with this series and the paranormal characters and the universe in which she has created is abound with endless possibilities - I can not wait to see which direction she goes
When it ended on a cliffhanger it took everything I had not to toss my Kindle
That being said - A loss of a star because:

Great indepth story with interesting and entertaining characters, the story is filled with complicated romance, mystery and action. It is a great story but what a cliffhanger, now I don't just want to read the next book I have too, I just hope it gets released relatively quickly the main characters are an empathic fae, her family and a couple of dragon shifters, if you enjoy a supernatural romance with a lot of suspense and hidden agenda then this is definitely the book for you.

Next chapter

This picks up after the prequel with our heroine having erotic but dangerous dreams. There is more clues of Kali's history in this chapter. The book feels like part of a serial only you're not told this is a serial story. We see more of Riley's character in this chapter and that's pretty much it.
