Publisher's Summary

Piper Jones can't catch a break. After a lifetime of animosity and indifference from the supernatural community, she thought she'd finally found a home with the vampire king's enforcers. Then the dark and mysterious Merc walks into her life, and it takes a disastrous turn for the worse.

Now under attack by enemies both known and unknown, Piper has little choice but to flee her refuge - and start over in a place few vampires ever go. Rural Alaska seemed to fit the bill, except for Knox and his crew of werewolves. The pack shares a connection with Piper that few of them can explain, and none of them can escape. With time running out for answers, Piper must fight the demons of her past to ensure her future - or die trying.

Sorry, I so wanted to like this

So, I am always up for a good story and romance but seriously . . . This had no continued plot. How can your main character disregard her major romance with no serious explanation to move on to a new “life long mate” (not even reflecting on the “event”).

I just kept thinking - where is this going?

This is so BAD, it was funny

Not sure how this godawful book got published. It made no sense most of the time, terrible writing. And the worst/funniest sex scene i’ve ever read. As for the narrator, she read too fast, and the delivery was choppy. If this was a movie (B or a C), Mystery Science Theatre would have had a field day with the dialog. One of my favorite lines was! “I was unconscious for two weeks, how could I not know this? Duh! Returning it now!!

Confusing on Ch10 no rhyme or reason to the story

I'm not even sure what this book is supposed to be about. I just know Piper is weak and whinny.

She is special but not sure why. Is being stocked for unknown reasons. And falls in love on demand with different people....

I just can't... to immature for my liking

Good book

Good story. Narrator uses different "voices" for each character which helps with keeping characters separate.

Excellent Series

I have been a huge fan of Amber's, ever since I delved into the Caged world... the Force of Nature series does not disappoint. When I found out the first book was on Audible, I had to purchase it. I am an Audible subscriber and will be holding my credits for the remaining books in this series. I love Piper, she is strong, much stronger than those in her world have lead her to believe. I can't wait to listen to the rest of her story and imagine her powers unfolding.

Amazing book!

This is a story where things seem to be going too well to early, and by well, I mean not an absolute complete shit show 😁.  You know it is going to hit the fan, and hit the fan it does. But this provides the opportunity for Piper to begin her road to discovery about herself.

Piper has had a hard life, she was orphaned at a young age and never fit in anywhere going up. She then discovered the supernatural world, hoping that is where she fit in, but as she is unable to access whatever magic she has, she still has no true place. This first book is the start of Piper discovering who she is and where she belongs.

I loved this book, and I am so excited to see where Piper’s story goes next.

I have been splitting reading and listening to the audiobook and Vanessa Moyen does a wonderful job with bringing the book alive.

could have been better

I overall liked it. but there were a lot of holes that could have been fixed with a few sentences. 1, she didn't even bat an eye about merc after leaving the mansion. she doesn't even mention him or being sad about losing him etc. 2, why does everyone want to kill her again? she doesn't even question why it matters to the warlocks so much to track her and kill her. I thought maybe it was because they knew she was crazy powerful but nothing like that even gets mentioned. 3, I get having a love triangle but she went from having a full on bond with merc to being in love with Knox in like 3 weeks.

Couldn't even finish

This book lacked proper details for the pace the writer set. I kept waiting for all the information. After chapter 12 I had to stop.

Force of Nature

loved the story and ready to read the sequel. the narrator was excellent. most memorable moment was when Merc helped Piper heal her werewolf friend and told her it was for her then walked away.

Vampires, Werewolves, and Magic galore

I really enjoyed this story. I love the narrator. Her male voices are pretty great, and she reads with great fluidity which allows me to sink into the story. As for the book, the plot had me very intrigued. I love the way that the book is broken up so it's almost like a series in one book. The plot was something I hadn't read before, and I'm excited to see what happens in the next book. There is a bit of a love triangle and a bit of abuse that happens, so if either of those turn you off, this is not the book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will definitely be grabbing book 2!

Great story, but ....

The narrator needs some lessons in how to pronounce certain words, quite a few actually, but it was a cracking story.

it was an okay read

if you like a super whiney, annoying, selfish heroin whome doesnt do anything other than play the victim, then this book is for you.
if you want to read about love literally at first sight between 2 "alpha males" towards this MC (whome she sleeps with both males despite being mated to the first one)

all in all i would be hard pressed to purchase the second book. there was way to much going on, no closure for a lot of information and little to no back story for some pretty impoetant parts (like why MC is an orphan, why no one stepped up to help a child, wrc. too frustrating for me.

***She a force of nature alright***

Omg i loved this book so much, its set in a furious pace and none stop action and thrills that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Piper she is amazing and kind, funny passionate and end up to be a forced of nature to be reckon with. Vanessa Moyen I'm so glad you did the narrative because you are perfect as Piper and awesome job as the other characters.
