Unfortunately this is lacking for being the first book in a new series by a much enjoyed author.
Starts well and entertains but then we get bogged down with too much boring information and repetition.
Just didn’t keep my attention.
Read previously but review from back of book is missing.
Drantos repeatedly tries to explain to Dani the danger that her and sister face, she thinks he's crazy when he tells her that he's not human. But Dani is stuck and has to go along with Drantos and be taken back to his village and safety.
First off what's up with that cover the guy is obviously having a bad hair day. I am so disappointed with this story I found it very difficult to get into. There's lots of world building that I didn't mind so much. The characters were okay, I just didn't feel that bone deep connection that this author usually manages between her two main characters. I got sick and tired of Dani being belittled throughout the whole story just because she's human, she's treated like a second class citizen. It's also very repetitive with the same conversations being had over and over. The only character that I would really be interested to hear more about is Aveoth the GarLycan leader.

Ok so I've been in a reading funk and have done a lot of the kindle unlimiteds that have been returned at like 18% because nothing's catching my interest. Drantos DID capture my interest and I was at like 70% before the skimming started.
This was due to repetition of glossing over 'how it all works' with the world building. I can handle that, that's fine.
Then there was Dusti... who I liked until she didn't give a certain someone the finger in the store. That's all I'll say. In my head, I re wrote that bit and that's what she did.
To me, drantos seemed like the set up book, you know, like the prequel novellas that come out to a decent series. Like she started writing with a different character in mind that wasn't ready to be released as the first but is the authors favourite and it's all a set up to that point.
But I'm going to keep reading. I didn't get into NS until the second book and that series got better and better the further in it got so I'm holding out hope-and also I love LDs style and that was present in this book in pieces.
I loved the start of the book. As I kept reading, a few things started to annoy me. First, I wasn't crazy about the sisters' names, but I could live with that. Drantos's character started to irritate me. Now, we all know that in this genre, we're usually looking for the tough alpha male type. At first, it seemed that Drantos filled that role nicely, even if he was a little over the top at times and I wasn't entirely sure I liked him. Then, as the book continued, he became a little... well, pathetic. The clan's assertions that Dusti made him weak seemed to be true. Sorry, but when I repeatedly read the alpha male begging a woman not to leave him... well, it does ruin the fantasy somewhat.
Dusti's character also became somewhat wishy washy as the book went on. She became a little shallow and irritating.
Don't get me wrong, I did still enjoy this book and I still think that Laurann Dohner is a fabulous author. This particular book just fell a little flat for me. Still, I enjoyed it enough that I bought the second book. Bat and Kraven both seem like strong characters, so hopefully book two will be a little stronger.
