My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First she does shifters, then she does vampires, there is nothing Megan Erickson can’t turn her hand to when it comes to creating great worlds.
I can’t think of the last time I deliberately picked up an MF romance, it was most likely a historical as that’s about the only type – outside of reviewing contemporary chick lit – where I’ll even consider it.
But I was right to trust in Megan to avoid all the tropes which have reduced traditional MF romances down to insipid pathetic heroines incapable of looking after themselves and arrogant alpha male arses for heroes.
Her Athan is an alpha male but he is a considerate, honourable, encouraging and loyal one and Tendra is no mild or meek woman, she’s strong and courageous.
The world building is good, there’s a nice cast of secondary characters and the plot narrative is interesting. The sex scenes were well crafted and I believed the chemistry between them.
This book ties up their individual story arc but leaves things open for book two, which I’m expecting to be Athan’s brother Idris and their enemy’s daughter.
