Isn’t it amazing when you discover an author who manages to put a different and appealing slant on genres you love reading? Sharon Buchbinder is one such author for me. Anyone who reads my reviews will know that I enjoy science fiction, paranormal, shifter, mysteries, suspense, thrillers and romance amongst others (sorry, very eclectic tastes) and I’m something of a prolific reader. So for something to seem a different slant is quite surprising to me. I’ve read plenty of shifter stories but this is the first one I’ve read where Djinn have also played a prominent role – and it really works well in this enthralling novella!
The characters are robust, well developed and have plenty of intriguing aspects as secrets start to be uncovered and the truth revealed. The plot has so many twist and turns that are detailed and exceptionally well written – to get so much action and turmoil into a novella is very impressive.
The whole story is superbly structured, making it a real page turner. The interpersonal relationships are portrayed emotively and Charlene makes a brilliant, caring, heroine seeking the truth whilst wary of her family’s past revelations impacting on the future of her, her disabled brother and her soulmate. An excellent read, I have no hesitation in highly recommending this brilliant novella and look forward to finding and reading further novels by this author in future!
Thank you to Bewitching Book Tours for supplying an ARC of this novella for me to read in exchange for this, my honest review.
When Charlene Johnson’s parents die in a single-car accident, she’s left behind as guardian for her severely disabled older brother. When her father’s death is ruled a suicide she is forced to move to the sleepy rural town of Eden, Kentucky, the very place her mother always warned her about. From the moment Zack Abingdon sees Charlene, he knows she’s the one. Despite the electrifying bond between them Charlene senses things are not all what they seem. Secrets within secrets unfold, and ultimately Charlene has to make a life and death decision between rejecting her true nature and accepting her place within the wolf pack.
