1: The World: Shapeshifters and an overdone cliche but Emily Noon makes them believable again - especially the contrast between avian society and shifter society. The characters explain the process of shifting and what it means. Its not a 'super power' per se its simply a part of life.
2) The Characters: Aurora and Evie are brought to life fully and with flaws, insecurities and pain. However, this book stays away from a Twilight brooding fest.
3) Romance: Honestly I was totally invested in the characters before any romance but its nicely done and respectful of power, situation and different backgrounds.
4) Details: From the first page you learn the consequences of shifting and society hostilities. There are dark themes but they aren't gratuitous or graphic
Don't be intimidated by the length - this is a very easy read and even though the tag line is 'dark fantasy' there are plenty of light and touching moments.
The second half of the book was overloaded with sex talk. It was as if the author felt that if she didn't work at least one sexual innuendo into every conversation, the reader might forget how hot Aurora and Evie were for each other. Hay we are in a life or death situation, but we should still take the time extchange a few single entendres so we don't forget about all the mind blowing sex we had last night.
Almost all of the action took place "off screen". The book would have Aurora getting ready to fight some baddy, then cut to Evie sitting around having another awkward exposition laden conversation about how much Aurora was loved by everybody she ever met, even though she thought they hated her. Not that the reader needed to experience the fights, Aurora was such a bad ass none of her opponents ever stood a chance. In fact Aurora was just awesome at everything. Although I really hated not getting to "see" that cutter jerk get what's coming to him, after what he did, I really would have liked to read him beg for his life.
And finally the porthole between the beastshifter's and the human world was unnecessary. It just served to taint the flavor of the book. They idea of fantasy characters, hitting the dance clubs, or picking up a pizza didn't seem to fit the mood of the book.
The characters were well-developed, but showed growth throughout the novel. The flow of the story and emotional roller-coaster kept me glued. The sex was graphic, but not over-done, and did not break the story, and was an obvious extension of the personalities involved and what they were going through. The romance was also a natural extension of the personalities involved, and was a process of discovery, and not just a jury-rigged setup.
I appreciate the low price, but this author needs to raise it to at least $7, possibly higher. Quality of story, world-building, character development is all fairly top-tier.
I'm really looking forward to future offerings from this author.
And such a world! Terrifyingly dark in places, amazingly bright in others. The cutters were the vilest villains one could ever face.
Technically very good.Only a few errors, but nothing terrible.
I look forward to the next works of this fine author.
Could’ve used a bit of editing to tighten the story up and a little more world building.
It focused a lot on the relationship between Evie and Aurora which is good, but would’ve liked a little more interaction with others....
Overall really enjoyed the story and look forward to more stories in this world.
Extremely well defined fantasy world
Rich storyline which perfectly balance action with plot
