My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Consider me blown away. I find the fact that Adhara is a debut author incredible because everything about this book is solid.
I loved the mix of mystery/police procedural, romance, and paranormal. The paranormal element comes in the form of werewolves, but Adhara’s take on the way they shift and how they’ve been able to survive for so long before “coming out” to the world’s governments is different from what I’ve seen before. Since coming out, the werewolves have had to contend with bigotry from some of those in the know, which reminded me of things happening right now, ahem. The mystery was much better than I expected, especially the police procedural scenes which seemed entirely accurate in my admittedly limited knowledge.
How was the romance? Wonderfully done and completely satisfying. I’m so impressed with this author’s debut. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, or whatever their next book is.
