WHY I READ IT
The cover grabbed my attention right off the bat and honestly that is why I read this book.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
As war looms between the two species, the Demon Lord is determined to find Annabelle – little does she know, the truth behind his sinister actions is about to unravel.
When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hell-bent on finding her.
Despite her objections, she is taken to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her… for now.
Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?
More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf… isn’t she?
Alena Des is a new author to me. I picked up her book after seeing the cover and being immediately impressed. Like all the books I read I went into this one blind knowing only that it had to do with shifters based off the books title. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The storyline was on point. There was never a lull in excitement. There were so many twists and turns that I quite trying to figure out where the story might lead because I never got it right! The inner dialogue was there but, done in a way that I was eager for more rather than skimming to find real conversation.
As much as I loved the storyline I was put off a bit by the character development and the writing overall. I felt like the characters could have been developed more. Some of the things they were saying and doing didn’t really fit with who I felt the characters were. Especially with Belle, her emotions were all over the place and it was hard to keep tract of what she was really feeling most of the book. Some of the things out of Keith’s mouth just didn’t match up to the image the author was portraying of him.
I think this was a good book that has the potential of being a great book if some of the dialogue and storyline got refreshed.
