I remember loving this series when I read it years ago. I read it a lot because of that. So I am surprised that I am finding that I am not enjoying this series as much as I used to. I don’t think they have aged as well as other books. That said, this still wasn’t a terrible book. I did enjoy aspects of it.
Abigail and Alexander met four years ago in Russia and fell in love. A terrible event occurs though and Abigail is deported from Russia because of it. Since then her love for Alexander has turned to hurt and anger. I didn’t love Abigail. She was constantly avoiding important conversations and basically acting like a coward. It felt very childish and made me not really enjoy her character. When it came to the action parts she was fine but any time it was just her and Alexander I got annoyed by her attitude.
Alexander was a protective alpha male who is determined to do anything to get Abigail back. I actually liked his character but we don’t get as much of his POV as we do Abbys, which I think is why I didn’t enjoy this book as much.
I enjoyed the action scenes the most in this book I think. We just get a small hint at how deadly Alexander can be though which was a little disappointing. I do hope we see more of his abilities in future books. The character who really made this book interesting though was Ilya Prakenskii. I can’t wait to get his story. So while I didn’t love this book, I will be continuing my reread of the series and hope it gets better.
