The New York Times bestselling author of the Lords of the Underworld series transports readers to a new and dark world in this sexy, paranormal novella…
Rose Pascal is swept into a dark, haunting realm every year on her birthday, only to return home the next day. She dreads each visit…even as she craves appearing before the realm’s warrior king, a deliciously maddening man who has spent his life hunting and killing her kind—with good reason. They are supposed to be enemies, but neither can deny the passion sizzling between them. With time running out, can they find a way to be together forever?
Includes a preview of The Hotter You Burn
I like the idea of this, the world building is well done. Very cool, different yet it reminds me of several other if my favorite PNR
The writing is great. I actually haven't read much of Showalter, this kinda cemented that I really should read more...
The character building is good in some aspects and rather meh in others
I liked the MCs - I liked their struggles and their relationship with others...
I liked their spunk and strength
But then they went from hardass to soppy in three seconds- And it made me kinda crinch internally
I kinda had the same issues with the plot- starts off uber good- and ended too mooshy for me
I mean I did like the end- don't misunderstand me. I really did. BUT the change was way to sudden. It felt impossible
The romance felt rushed at the end as well.
And while in the beginning I was all in with the instas at the end of this it felt just a bit too much.
All in all- very entertaining and enticing read. But I wish Showalter would have made this into a longer story- since the end felt rushed and abrupt
Still I hope she will write more set in this world!
