After rescuing her sister from her kidnapper and dealing with the world being attacked by dragons, famous singer Star isn’t ready to trust anyone but her clan of misfits, especially not the handsome dragon Lachlan. There is something about him that is familiar and she doesn’t know why. When her sister’s kidnapper launches another attack, Star has no choice but to accept Lachlan’s help to protect her sister.
I really enjoyed this book. I found the world fascinating and really can’t wait to read the next book and learn more about the types of paranormals in this world. I really enjoyed Star and Lachlan. They had great chemistry and a great story. Also I actually enjoyed all the side characters and want to know all their backstories as well.
Star and her sister are very rare shifters, I won’t say what kind, and have hidden their shifter side all their life. Everyone assumes they are some kind of snow leopards since there are a couple in their misfit clan. Star is the alpha of their clan. She is strong, powerful, and determined to protect all her family. She doesn’t trust Lachlan at first but the more she learns about him the more she falls for him. I loved watching Star get sassy with Lachlan. He needs someone who will challenge him and be a strong mate.
“He had waited a lifetime, thousands of lifetimes, for her and he would do it again. She was worth the wait, worth everything.”
Lachlan is a dragon shifter who has just awoken after hibernating for thousands of years. He is protective, arrogant, and determined to win Star. I really hope we learn more about Lachlan’s clan in the future books because I really want to know more about the dragon clans in this world. I also really want to know more about the destruction done by the dragons. It mentions that a lot of the world was destroyed but this only focuses on New Orleans and it’s rebuilding.
Overall, a powerful start to a new series and I cannot wait for the next one.
