A diverse world of demons, witches and vampires. The book has promise, be the content in this book was an overkill.
*Thanks to Netgalley for this copy of Lure of Oblivion in turn for an honest review*
Mated to the Werewolf King Synopsis:
As war looms between the two species, the Demon Lord is determined to find Annabelle – little does she know, the truth behind his sinister actions is about to unravel.
When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hell-bent on finding her.
Despite her objections, she is taken to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her… for now.
Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?
More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf… isn’t she?
Oh, how I wanted to love this book. The synopsis promised mystery, shapeshifters and a promise of something more.
It just didn’t deliver, and it just made me want to cry out in frustration!
The story was jam-packed with a heavy plotline (which at times got very tiring), so many characters that you never really got to learn enough about their backstory. It was hard for me to connect with Belle…who was 18. I felt this character needed to be maybe slightly older for it to be believable. I mean Belle experiences a variety of things, such as being kidnapped, tortured, offered up for sex and being trapped spiritually. After all of that, she still comes out sane and manages to have twin *spoiler alert*
There were good points, the world was intriguing, and I loved the Witches and Werewolf packs. Plus Jared, The Werewolf King, has significant progress through the book, it’s just a shame that Belle and he didn’t seem to jell for me.
This book threw me as it got great reviews. I know I have high expectations when it comes to paranormal romance, Das is close to creating a fantastic series. I will try and read the other books in the trilogy, so here hoping that they will be a bit more refined.
