***This is an adrenaline rush novel with a mixture of fantasy, romance, and paranormal ~ supernatural abilities. Perfect for fans of sarcastic heroines, protective males, and instant attraction.***
This book is from a dual point of view, jumping between Tova and Pierce. This author does. A fantastic job with her descriptions, leaving nothing to the imaginations. She is very detailed and includes photos of the characters in the chapters. I love that the author gives us insight into the drama we keep seeing Tova wake up from but beware, this book should have a trigger warning as it discusses the reason for her nightmares. This book is sweet and sad. The characters deal with a lot of emotions and past issues and decide they love each other. On top of the emotional problems, they also seem to have unique talents.
I love the fantasy world this author has set this story in and all the history and info for the reader to understand her world. It doesn’t have a name. It is just talked about as a place like a colony on Iron Mountain. The people are human but with some unique talents. The society is exciting and definitely unique to this story that the author has created. This story heats up as events lead the character on an adventure that could have some significant consequences.
The love story between Pierce and Tova is sweet, and I love how protective he is. She is strong, and her strength shows even though she battles her own demons. The story ends with a massive cliffhanger and a ton of intense action.
The author did a great job of leading the reader on an intriguing journey with her characters and the characters they interact with. I enjoy the family aspects and words of wisdom she brought into the story. The cliffhanger is so shocking. I can’t wait to read more and find a resolution to the story and the couple I’ve enjoyed reading about. The epilogue at the end of the book really doesn’t give anything away to the reader for the upcoming second book in this series.
This book contains some mature content it should have a trigger warning and it does contain gruesome action scenes.
