2.5 Stars. Unfortunately, this was not my cup of tea. I love paranormal books, and try to read just about any lesfic paranormal book I can get my hands on. Vamps, werewolves, this should have been right up my alley but I just could not connect with it. This is the 2018 version released by LT3 Press, I am not sure how much this story has changed since when it used to be called Gothic.

Dahlia is in her early 20’s and is a student in University in Australia. What is different about Dahlia is that he

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

There’s nothing worse than being told how special and talented a character is, without ever seeing the proof for yourself. In CHANGING LOYALTIES, Dahlia has always been the dividing line between the werewolf and vampire factions. CHANGING LOYALTIES is part murder mystery, part paranormal romance. However, it’s almost immediately clear who the murderer is and who the end love interest is.

There’s a lot of potential in a polyamorous, goth main character,

I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Can I start with how beautiful the cover is?

Honestly, I feel like this book had a lot of good ideas, but many of them weren't executed too well.

I loved the main character being a human who is adopted by both werewolves and vampires, and I absolutely loved the vampire godmother who keeps food around just for her! Still, other than Al and Luca, I didn't really get a family-feeling from the werewolf pack at all, and I was really

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys a good young adult book, vampires, werewolves, or anything supernatural!
I literally could not stop reading it. The storyline is fresh, the characters are unique, and I really enjoyed reading this book. Were there flaws? Yes. Does every book have flaws? Of course. For Gothic, I don't feel the flaws outweighed the positives, and this book ended up being a phenomenal read. I posted a full review and breakdown of this book on www.drunkenspacepenguin.blogspot.com if you would like to read more. Here is a little excerpt of my full review:

Ok!! Now this was a book I may have to read again in the future. It was highly enjoyable and complex. The characters were completely endearing, I found Dhalia could be my next door neighbor or my friend from work. She's trying so hard to be normal, to have some true-human life that it seems almost like she doesn't think of herself as it. Renee is funny and silly yet a wonderful friend. Annabelle was one of my two favorite characters, she is all she has to be and yet still a lot more, I would lov ...more
