Interesting premise, but too short at 108 pages to be sold as a full-length book. Also, not much is resolved in the book and the end is a doozy of a cliffhanger.
I wasn't crazy about the jumping around in time. The characters were interesting, but not endearing.
So many storylines were started and so many questions were brought up and very few answers. I think many of my problems with the book would be resolved if it was longer and had more to it, so I would be interested in reading the next book.
The Hunters moment of the kill was well done.
torture, murder, sexual situations
[Never Too Old For Y.A. Books] Read for Review #25.

The Book is a quick read and fascinating also. You start out in the present, and then get a history of the wives. The rules they must live by seem harsh, but they die at 24. Sumarra has always walked outside of the lines a little but shows bravery and a protective need for her fellow wives. I finished the book and it seemed like it was only the first 6 chapters and I absolutely have to read the next book. Holly is what I call an addicting writer, she draws you in a foot but then you go yourself a mile, and have to find out what happens next.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was gifted to me by the author for an honest review.
I don't usually give 2 stars but I really don't know how I feel about this book. The first pages were hard to read and left me confused, I didn't understand the direction of the story at all. I only got into to it and started to understand about two thirds of the way in.
The story is about a group of women who don't have emotions or relationships with men. They use men for sex to have babies, their touch is seductive and addictive to those they touch. They hear voices from past women who guide them. And they are constantly on the run from hunters.
The hunters are cursed and have to hunt and kill the women in order to break the curse. The story alternates between past and present referring to king Solomon. I feel like the book has been dragged out. I personally would off liked a chapter at the beginning to give a history of the past then dive straight into the story. Would I get the next one......... I don't know.
I feel awful giving this review but I am being as honest as I can.
Thank you Holly for giving me the opportunity
