World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 👨🏻👱🏻♀🧔🏻👩🏻
The heroine: Perren – her fiancé of one day suddenly disappeared last year and all her friends as well as his parents think he got cold feet and ran but will come back any time. Perren knows he is dead and is grieving alone. She was attacked by by shifters when she was 10 and everyone around her was killed. Though she didn’t know what it was that attacked her.
The Hero(es): Captain Lukian Vlakhusha – Captain of the Immortal Ops and King of the shifters in the Northern Hemisphere. His team gets a kill order on Peren, but he feels ambivalent about the order after seeing her picture.
The Story: Lukian and his team go after the subject of their Kill order and when he sees her, he wants to protect her rather than eliminate her and his buddy Roi has the same feeling about Perren’s best friend Missy.
The story was good but seemed unfinished and a bit rushed. I liked the storyline about Perren being attacked when she was just 10. There were a lot of starts to romances (that I am sure will be in the next few books), which I can’t stand. When there is a series where each book is about a different romance, I like the romance to start in the book that is about that couple, not in prior books, but maybe that is just personal preference because this happens a lot in romance series.
Also, Perren seems to have a lot more to learn and I kind of wanted that all to happen in this book, I hope it happens in later books, but I wish it would have been mostly in this book. I will definitely be reading more to find out what happens with this entire group of people.
This was told mostly from Lukians POV and though I like dual POV, I did like that it was mainly in the Hero’s POV rather than the Heroine, since most books are largely in the heroines. I liked the narrator’s voice and the fact that it was deep and commanding, though I am taking a point off the narration because all the men in the book didn’t have different inflections or accents so it was hard to tell sometimes who was talking.
