World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍🌏
Character development: 😠😘🤓😉
The heroine: Inara Nash – she was the result of a genetic experiment on children in the womb. She had Fae DNA from her distant relatives which was mixed with werewolf and some type of cat shifter. She has been living on the streets since she was young. She didn’t know what she was until she met a friend named Jimmy who was a shifter. He told her she smelled like a shifter, though she can’t shift. Jimmy knew why the men in black were searching for her, but he never told her. Since he was caught, all she has done is run.
The Hero: Eadan Daly – he is a Magik and worked for both the PSI Ops and the Immortal Ops. He was recently switched back from the Immortal Ops team he had been working on to the PSI Ops and given a list of people that were part of the Asia Project, which was a genetic experiment by some mad scientists. He was shown a picture of Inara Nash, whom he had never seen before but immediately recognized. She was on the list and marked to bring in or eliminate.
The Story: Eadan was shown the pictures of Inara by his boss because they had gotten a tip that she was his fated mate. The PSI Ops had also tried to catch her and she had gotten away not once but three times, which is unheard of from even the most highly trained. Eadan immediately wanted to be the one to go after her as he didn’t want anyone else to touch her or hurt her.
Inara had been drawing pictures of Eadan for years, but thought he was just a man she made up in her head. She was living as a street rat and keeping out of sight as much as possible. When she finally meets Eadan, she knows he is the man who she has been seeing in her mind, but she also finds out that he is with the men in black.
This book was told in multiple points of view, via solo narration. I generally don’t buy books that don’t have dual narration, but I really like this series. I don’t understand why authors don’t do dual narration on most romance books, but at least this one had a decent narrator and I like his voice. The narration was done by Topher Samuals, who isn’t the best narrator, but isn’t the worst either.
