Review by Poo Penny
BLEGH. If questionable consent is your thing, then you are really gonna like this book. I don’t get it, and I am ok with it. It was just too rapey for me. I like when there is a clash of wills, and the seduction is a little more intense, but not when the heroine is kind of a wuss. She had absolutely no spine. When she finally DID get a spine, I was wondering, why didn’t she kick the crap out of him a little more? She just bitch slapped him, and that was lame. So yeah, there is that. It makes no sense, because after this I read The Pawn, and I actually liked that story line a little more, but the heroine had a little bit of the same problem, being a total wuss.
Grade: 1 star

About the book
Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire—unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death.
A mythic warrior who’ll stop at nothing to possess her…
After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy…
Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents—until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae—and their notorious dark desires—ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
An all-consuming desire…
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?
