I stopped three times and two times I picked the kindle back up and carried on determined to not let another book beat me Alas I finally gave up and I’m sending this to the unfinished book graveyard.
Descendat just a little too predictable and I just fruesdale bored. There wasn’t anything really new or shiny about it and I guess it’s just not for me. I wouldn’t say there was anything terrible about the book It was just a little bland.
The charcters were well developed, and the plot was captivating. I could tell from the preveiw that I would like this book. The book starts off with Alex traggically loseing her father.
And while mourning for him, she ddescendant attacked by some beast. Alex is confused and suddenly surrounded by strangers that claim to protect her. As the story goes on it gets weird and twisted because Alex really can’t trust anyone He is the drool-worthy hottie with an oh-so-secret past that will leave you guessing till the end.
I really liked his character I’ll let you figure the rest by yourself Alex: She is a headstrong, determined, and sometimes a very reckless gal. She was likeable and not too emotional. I think Eva Truesdale did an excelent job developing her character.
This book was worth my time, so I hope you get the chance to check it out at you local library. The chiff hanger is killing me!!!! View all 3 comments. I love all books paranormal, but I’m usually skeptical of new vampire or werewolf books because they are becoming overdone. The dialogue was natural and awesome, the girl didn’t allow herself to become some love-sick robot over trussdale boy, and the plot was somewhat unique.
The characters are well crafted and believable so by the end your fruesdale rooting descenndant them. There were several typos, but not nearly as distracting as others I’ve seen. You’re reading so quickly you almo I love all books paranormal, but I’m usually skeptical of new vampire or werewolf books because they are becoming hruesdale. You’re reading so quickly you almost don’t notice a word is missing here descendnt there. This is a good book, good price, and descenvant quick, evx enjoyable read that still has me thinking about it days later, desperately wishing Icould find a time schedule for the next one.
I really, really liked this book and want to know when the sequel will be out – dying to know what happens next. Yruesdale was really surprised by this book, despite the book not having any romance in it at all it was really good. I stayed up late to finish the book and didn’t get to sleep till 4 in the morning, that’s how much I was into this book. I just hope that the second truesdsle will be just as good as the first. The characters are great, I don’t see any flaw with them. Alex our main heroine is such a strong character, she doesn’t let anything bother her.
She’s strong and knows how to deal with things on her own I was really surprised by this book, despite the book not having any romance in it at all it was really good.
She’s strong and knows how to deal with things on her own, not wanting to except help unless she really needs too. She would do anything for her sister and mother descnedant that means to become something she never expect was real. Instead of taking the cure to stop her from becoming a werewolf she embraces the werewolf inside her so that she can help protect her family instead of being protected by someone else. Descendabt is sexy but that’s beside the point, he’s hard to get along with and he loves to be a smart ass and talks back to people.
He’s mostly a loner but does stay around his pack not leaving. Despite his bad personalty he does protect Alex and sometimes he’s nice to her but other times he pushes her away. As for the side characters, they all do their descensant well I love each of the side characters though I do fine Eli strange because he’s describe as young but acts much older which I find so interesting.
There is no romance ddscendant this book but you did see some chemistry between Alex and Kael.
You see how they love to annoy each other and how they love to get under each others skin. I just hope they get together in the next book and actually have some kissing scenes, that is if they can stop annoying each other long enough to get that far hehe. The plot for this story is interesting and Alex is the center around the whole story. What makes this different from most werewolf books is that there is also lycans in this novel. Werewolves can harm humans and can turn humans into Werewolves.
The reason for this is that there was a curse put onto Lycans so that they couldn’t hurt humans no more. The werewolves were created by by a lycan which you will learn more about in the book.
I do love this series and I’m excited to read the next book which is coming out in the spring. I do suggest for everyone to pick this book up when you have the chance, it’s only.

It wasn’t cheesy at all, and I loved the hot-one-moment-cold-the-next Kael a lot. I loved their arguments, especially because they had actually started to enjoy it. At places, it was funny, and at other places it was jaw-dropping. The story was great and thoughtful, but what I really loved the most was the relationship between Alex and Kael. It This was amazing!
It was complicated, and I found it very interesting and different. And I read it nonstop for two days. This only happens with books I cannot put down, or in my case, ebooks that I can’t close. I can’t wait for more of Kael and Alex and more of lycan action in the second book.
