I don’t know if it’s because I was reading a review copy, but the formatting was confusing right from page 1. There was the heading of “Prologue” and then never another heading throughout the entire book. Sometimes a point of view shift was abrupt further adding to the confusion; I was once halfway through a paragraph before I realized I wasn’t seeing through the same person’s eyes anymore. Another big issue for me was that I couldn’t tell whether the world at large knew about shifters and vampires or anything until the last few pages. A consistency problem in the writing, particularly with tenses doesn’t help with any points of confusion either.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The story was good, consisting of multiple conflicts and I enjoyed the characters for the most part. What I didn’t like was that this appears to be a book 2, and it does not stand very well on its own because some of the conflict stems from past events. I often felt like I’d missed something because of references made to things that don’t happen in this book. There is some romance (the physical aspect of which mostly happens “off-screen”), both between the couple from the last book and the couple that is the focus of this one, but while one feels hearty, the other feels rushed and a little 2-dimensional.
Overall, I like the community and some of the characters, and there were some funny moments and some endearing ones, but ultimately the story just doesn’t flow very smoothly or have a natural feel to it.
