Great read. Very hard to put down. I was hoping for a happy no cliff hanger ending. which I received! I can't wait for book two! Hopefully I can find out what makes a Guardian so special. I love books that the main characters power up a little more in each book through the series. The first book Rosalyn has grown a lot . Very excited to see where this series goes!
This is a new author to me. The book blurbs sounded fun so I thought I'd give it a try. The idea for the story is good but the storytelling doesn't quite live up to its potential. Rosalyn, a human, and her best friend/roommate Jake, part fae, have trained from an early age as mercenaries. As the bastard son of a fae prince, they knew his father's enemies would one day come after him. This happens right at the beginning of the book. Rosalyn is home alone when full-blooded fae attack. She is lured outside and gets attacked by a rogue loup garou (werewolf) during a blood moon and is turned into a garou. She has no reaction to this other than mild annoyance. I mean yes, she knows this supernatural world exists but she's human, she should have freaked out a little bit! Eventually she meets alpha garou Cole and Valentin, another garou who saves her from hunters. She's not sure who to trust as she tries to find the rogue garou who turned her and stop his killing spree. I wanted to like Rosalyn but I found her to be too wishy washy. And Jake is not around enough to know if I like him or not. I will probably read the next book to see if the storytelling improves.
3.0 out of 5 starsGreat story, but needs proofreading.

3 stars because the story is great, but the typos are extremely annoying. Seriously, I love this story since the main character acts more like someone in real life would when turned into a shifter against their will and not automatically jumping into bed with the first man, or even the second, that she meets. Nothing is really misspelled, there are just a lot of extra or missing words. It's like the author reformed the sentence, but didn't fully change the sentence. Also, a couple of plot errors. I originally chose not to get the audiobook because I didn't really like the voice acting, but I decided to give up on the Kindle versions and got the audiobook with the full series. I can get used to voice acting, but when there are typos while I'm reading, I get completely thrown from the story.
5.0 out of 5 starsStrong heroine who is coming into her own...

I expected a fun book about shifters, I have found a new series to become addicted to. The story of Rosalyn learning of her new abilities and how to move in a world she was previously only on the fringe of makes for a good read and enjoyable tale.
5.0 out of 5 starsShifter urban fantasy that stays true to the genre

I really enjoyed this story. I was hooked by the first chapter and read it in one sitting. It's easy to read, fast paced, and not too long. (But not too short, either.)
The main character grows through the book, and you can tell there is more growth to be had. I prefer books where the characters aren't perfect from day one. Those characters tend to be more annoying and the story lackluster because of no growth.
The plot is interesting, and not something that's been done a million times.
It was a refreshing read and I'm looking forward to book 2!
This is a great start to this series. Ready to dive into book 2. There were a few places where the wording of a sentence was weird to me, so I had to read the sentence a couple times to get the meaning.
I felt like there was a lot of information missing. For example, how did the supernatural community know the next day that she was turned? It was never explained. Also, the main character was extremely dumb and immediately trusting people she didn’t know. Her uncontrollable rage/anger towards the alpha didn’t really make sense. Overall it was a little lackluster and I will not be continuing this series.
Really enjoyed this,good strong characters and storyline. I bought this whilst 'Fishing' for something new to read and am glad I selected this, really looking forward to the next in the series,I've already ordered it!
