ARC received via Netgalley.
I love paranormal books and thought I’d like this. Sadly it wasn’t one for me.
I found Natalie a strange person for the main character, I just didn’t get much sense of personality from her and couldn’t empathise with her and her situation. She had family problems, and a horrific childhood, with mother and grandparents now dead and her father around but hopefully away from her. She had good friends in the Guerreros, and they seemed to be her substitute family. I understood how she loved them and wanted to keep them out of danger. I got to about 50% in the book, but it seemed to be a confusing mix of events for me, and to be honest I didn’t have that sense of danger, that concern for Natalie that I needed so I ended skim reading to the end, and when I got there I was surprised it was the finish, there didn’t seem to be a sense of closure or anything. That could be because I’d missed vital info through my skim reading, but I just wasn’t interested enough in the plot and characters to read it thoroughly. That may be different for you – thankfully we all want different things from our reading which leads to a great selection of books. This one just wasn’t one for me.
Stars: two – sorry, I’m sure the author worked really hard but it wasn’t something I enjoyed reading.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
