I don’t normally read books with paranormal elements but this year I have decided to try genres outside my comfort zone and this book did not disappoint.
It was obvious to me as a reader that the author is passionate about what she is writing about and to me this helps to made the novel more enjoyable. I feel that all the characters were well thought out and written with such passion that they jumped from the page.
The only flaw I have with this novel is at times there is a lot of species and characters at the one time and this can become confusing in keeping tract of who is who. Overall I really enjoyed this novel and look forward to reading more work from Ami Blackwelder.
