***Disclaimer: I received a copy in exchange for a review.***
What’s Good: a fast paced read built upon some interesting concepts and ideas about eugenics and human experimentation. Lots of potential for the future books in the series to explore them.
What’s Bad: so many ideas, so little exploration of them and too much reliance on tropes and cliches. Being a PNR story, the emphasis was on the (forced) sexual tension between Malachi & Jez and the tired, overused cliche of “fated mates” for the Wolven males. Would’ve been much more interesting to also see some actual Wolven females claiming human men as well.
What’s Left: a light, entertaining read that’s got a lot of possibilities for the series. Only time will tell.
