The werewolf said, “Race you to the road.” It was the last thing Tovin heard before his life became uncomfortably complex.
Before that night in the forest, Tovin was the type of guy to play it safe. Happy wearing the same shoes, buying the same deodorant, and eating the same meals day after day, he thought his simple existence was pretty great. At least until his boyfriend dumps him for being boring. Heartbroken but on a mission of vengeance, Tovin decides to start a new life filled with excitement, danger, and maybe a meal from a questionable food truck.
A date with Garvey would start it all. Handsome, sophisticated, the man is everything Tovin thinks he needs. It’s a pity he turns out to be a werewolf on a mission to save his pack from destruction.
Now Tovin is caught up in Garvey’s world.
Abducted and forced to be the bloodservant of a powerful Alpha, he lands right in the middle of a brewing conflict that threatens to destroy humanity.
When I saw Dani’s post with the Blog Tour on this book, I was intrigued by the blurb and the sample chapter. I couldn’t wait to read Tovin and Garvey’s story.
But, unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Tovin and Garvey are kind of an afterthought, in my opinion, in this book. They appear from time to time, but not as major players. I’m not even sure who the major players were supposed to be. There were so many characters and storylines going on, that I never got comfortable as to whose story I was reading.
There is a lot going on in the story, and frankly I’m guessing it must be set-up for future books. After spending the time to read this one, and then getting to a cliffhanger ending, I’m not sure those future books will be in my future.
I think the author tried to get too many stories going at once, and it hurt the overall story in my opinion. I was left feeling slightly confused. There were werewolves that ate humans, there were rival werewolf ‘gangs’, and there were vampires. Then from left field, there was mention of dragons and doorways, and other planets, and Earth being like the last untouched human world? I was so confused.
The book really wasn’t for me. Honestly, if I hadn’t had it for a review, I probably would have given it to my DNF (did not finish) pile. I’ll let you make your own opinion on it. If you read it, and can explain it to me, please do. For now, I’m just going to say it fit our “It was OK” rating level. It was okay. There were parts that drew me along, but there were more that didn’t.
