Wanting a new PNR to add to your TBR list? Then this book could be the one for you! I was so happy to have stumbled across Brenda K. Davies. I am afraid a new addiction is about to ensue.
Over the centuries, anything Ronan once found pleasure in has faded away to be replaced with blood, death, and the ever-constant battle not to give in to the more savage side of his vampire nature. Every time he wakes, he questions if that day will be the one he succumbs to the beckoning darkness.
As a born hunter, Kadence has been sheltered from the world for her entire life, never allowed to step beyond the walls of her home. It’s not a life she’s happy with, but it’s one she’s come to accept. Everything changes the day her father is slaughtered by a vampire and she escapes the walls that have kept her caged.
After she’s attacked by the monster responsible for killing her father, Kadence is unsure how to react when she’s rescued by Ronan. Though raised to hate vampires, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Ronan as she slowly begins to realize that everything she’s been taught over the years may not be true. Now, she must decide what she wants more; Ronan, her family, or the elusive freedom she’s finally found.
It has been a while since I have come across a good PNR, not to mention a good PNR series. As a reviewer it can sometimes be a bit of a drag when you pick a book with a great synopsis, only to find that the story just needed a little more to it. I know what I like and I know I can be quite fussy about it. PNR is a genre that if you nail the mix of character development, over arching theme and just the right amount of romance, then by means you have yourself an addicted audience.
So to avoid going into a huge rant let me give you the rundown of why I loved this book! Firstly the Heroine Kadence is not some whiny woman, she is intelligent, fearless and knows how to pick her battles. Also, she is not afraid to improve herself and make the best of any situation. The background on her life is interesting enough and I could easily see the author entwining new storylines for this.
The miscommunication between the Hero and Heroine is quirky, you can understand both sides and yet you laugh when they both frustrate the hell out of each other. I found the pace of the book enjoyable and the overall story interesting. Davies intertwined backstory and main plot effortlessly. I felt like I was reading something from the likes of Nalini Singh or Larissa Ione, both brilliant in their world creation.
Overall I was ridiculously happy to find another PNR series to sink my teeth into, I am trying my best not to completely devour the second book as this is a new series. But I won’t be surprised if I sneak over and start reading her currently long-standing one.
