I’m a vampire huntress. Yet I get imprinted on by a pack alpha.
I come from a long, extensive family of vampire hunters. I moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia to take care of my little sister, also a vampire huntress. But trouble calls me on speed dial and I discover a string of murders in town at the hands of a vampire.
This isn’t a normal vamp, though. He’s playing with dark magic, something I’ve never dealt with before. On top of that, there’s a wolf pack in town and their alpha, Tyler Perkins, has fallen head over heels for me. To make matters worse, my sister dies at the hands of the vampire.
Could my life get anymore effed up?
But in the pursuit of justice, I start warming up to Tyler and things get steamy between us. He helps me take on the vampire and his nest, who become a threat to his pack. I start to wonder if Tyler and I were destined to meet. As the fire and passion burn brighter than ever between us, I get my answer: he’s my fated alpha.
WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW
This book was awful. Hands down. I picked it up free, and I still feel like I wasted my money. I will hand it to the cover artist – the cover is gorgeous, which is what gave me some hope going into the story that it was going to be decent… but I was gravely mistaken. I only got about two chapters into the book before I DNF’d it.
So what went wrong? The writing. It’s stilted and choppy – lacking any sense of flow or pacing. The wording of the most basic sentences is weak and strangely put together, as if the author didn’t speak English as a first language. The characters were dramatic in the most annoying ways, and the narrative voice kept pointing out small details that didn’t matter to the story. At all.
The main male lead’s 1st chapter (chapter 2) was so insufferably weak and whiney that I threw the book down and gave up. Maybe the plot was interesting, maybe the characters had some redeeming qualities. Maybe the book gets better… I don’t know. I could not push past how terrible the writing was from a technical standpoint. Overall, this book gets a pass from me. I can’t recommend it to readers, and honestly… if you can get through the first few chapters, I tip my hat to you. That takes some serious willpower.
