Orol, the Refuge’s second-in-command, has been given the mission to escort two human females to the settlement. When he arrives, he finds one missing and the other trying to kill him. He also realizes she is his mate.
So while I liked the action in this book, I didn’t love the romance. Orol and Rhea don’t have any build up to their relationship. I know this is a fated mate romance and that the relationships usually start very quickly but this one had no build up at all, which kind of killed it for me. I was hoping for a little bit of emotion and relationship build up since the first book, Dark Thoughts, had that. Sadly because of this, I didn’t really love this couple. Yes they are attracted to each other but there wasn’t very much emotional impact to their relationship.
The action and battles in this story were interesting. I like that we get to see more of this world outside of the Refuge and that we see another genetically modified being. Rhea’s sister was an annoying twat in the beginning that instantly got on my nerves. Hopefully she grows up if she shows up in any future books.
Overall, this one was not my favorite of the series. Hopefully Balvan’s story is better because I find this giant green being fascinating.
