2 stars – it was ok

Former Breed Hunter, Trygg is the ultimate loner but when his solo mission leads to the beautiful Atlantean Tamisia, he can’t get her out of his thoughts. 

While I really enjoy this series, the novellas are a mixed result for me and this one is definitely not my favorite. This couple didn’t really work for me with how short their story was. If it had been longer, I might have come to like Trygg but he was just a controlling butthole in this story. 

Like I said, Trygg was very possessive in this story but he was also very distant. Yes there was attraction between these two but I didn’t feel any love from Trygg’s side, just possession which Sia definitely didn’t need more of. He is so possessive he ruins a mission instead of letting Sia take care of herself, which isn’t cool in my book considering she is a powerful Atlantean. 

Sia on the other hand was a very interesting heroine. She could kick ass if necessary, was extremely compassionate, and also wasn’t afraid to stand up against evil, or just annoying and possessive men. I really liked her and wished she had been partnered with a better male. 

Overall, this definitely isn’t my favorite story from this series but I am glad we are still getting stories with some of the minor characters. 

Trigger Warnings: Trygg was forced into prostitution after his escape from the Hunter program.
