Was looking for something easy and fun. This filled the bill nicely. Quick read with some interesting fae/vamp twists. And Link! What a fun idea he is! Talk about a secret weapon! The MC is a different sort, not some kick azz take no names type, so at times you wanted her to be more, but then again, between her friends, enemies and Link, not sure she needed to be more. Hopefully she'll become a bit more kick azz but not lose that whole play nice outlook. Naive, but cute and very good hearted so I was ok with the change of pace for a leading lady. For now anyway!

Some YA books are borderline New adult and others, this one included, lean more towards the teen side. It is very lollipop and candlyfloss with a few nasty vampires to add to the fluffy faeness of it all.
Now that could be the intended market the author is trying to target and if so then I am sure that younger age group will really enjoy it.
For me it lacked substance and a real connection to the characters. Flitting from one scene to the next without every having time to get to know any of them. Flighty and bubbly all rolled into one.
Having a Shih Tzu that shifts is a new one. It is a cute but odd option to have it shift into something fierce and dangerous. The main character is torn between two love interests and wanting to find out who killed her twin brother. Mix in two supernatural species trying to gain the upper hand in a scientific twist with the main character as the solution to all their troubles and you get this light-hearted read.
I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.

    Not recommended!

    The characters were flat & not likable. I would have dumped it but decided to finish since I was so far along. I should have dumped it in the first couple chapters since it didn't get better. I was glad that it was clean & not racy (sleazy) with sex sections.

    At least it was free but if you have to pay for it, you will be cheated. With all the free books out there, don't waste you time on this one.
