First of all, the blurb for this book doesn't do it justice. This book has it all for paranormal romance fans - a variety of supernatural "creatures," escapes, battles, kidnappings, a possessive alpha male, and hot sex. (We all know how well those last two go together!)
Don't let the fact that this is a new author scare you!! In Violet, M.L. Med has produced a solid debut novel. This book is well written and the author has created an interesting world with diverse characters. You will FEEL right along with Marcus and Skyler. The secondary characters are intriguing as well, to the point that I am already jonesing for the next book because I didn't get enough of them! (Caden, oh Caden, just what will happen to you?!)
This book is quite fast paced. The above mentioned kidnappings and battles? Just a small part! Looking back I almost can't believe all the events in just this one story! While it made for an exciting read, I do have to say sometimes I felt like it was a little too hurried. I would have liked to have had a bit more background and detail for certain scenes, and perhaps a bit more reaction or "head talk" from the minds of our hero and heroine instead of what felt like at times, a rush to the next conflict. This is a matter of personal preference though, as I am sure many readers will love how action packed this book is!
Overall, I am quite impressed with this debut. There were times that I had to remind myself that this is M.L. Med's first novel. A few of the ideas in the book have been done before, but the author manages to combine them in a way that keeps them interesting. I was hooked and motivated to keep reading throughout, and now will impatiently wait for the sequel!
