I absolutely love Madeline Sheehan's books...she writes in such a way that just speaks...NO screams out to my heart and all the inner feelings I have about life and love. I have never read a book quite like this one...it is completely out of the normal genre that I usually read, but being such a huge fan of hers (and the fact she put it on Smashwords for FREE) convinced me to give it a try.
WOW...WOW...WOW...what an exciting and beautiful and horrible and sexy and mystical journey that was...and without a doubt, it left me wanting to read more...but OMG...it made me feel so many emotions and that last freaking chapter...made me bawl my eyes out!!
This was a completely original dystopian world where fantasy lives amidst creatures with sharp claws and teeth and everyday is a fight for survival while magic serves as a protector.
Trinity, Zan and Gerik make up the unbelievably sexy as hell love triangle...Trinity and Gerik "bonded" as soulmates and Zan, the one who loves her unconditionally.
There are so many characters in this story and it keeps going back and forth between the past and present day...you really need a score sheet or cliff notes to keep up at times, not to mention all the Romanian and Slovenian phrases which are sometimes easy to figure out but at others it's good to check the provided glossary so you don't miss a thing!
This is not only a battle of survival for all in this society or between the two men fighting for Trinity's love, but rather a strong woman determined to fight for the right to make her own choices about her own future...without magic or interference from the Gypsy camp who have taken her in.
If you liked Sheehan's biker series, you will love this one as well...the setting may be different but there are an abundance of hot, bossy alpha males, interfering bitches (I just wanted to wring Onyx's damn neck!), a real sense of family ties and loyalty, plus an amazing mix of scorching romance and blood curdling action!
