Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden.
To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance.
Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.…
For practical Reda Weston, nothing could explain how reading a sexy version of "Little Red Riding Hood" catapulted her into another realm—face-to-fang with the legendary wolf-creature who seduced women. A wolf who transformed into a dark, virile man….
Dayn cursed the Sorcerer that turned him wolfyn and damned him to a lonely fate. As a beast, he mated with women to gain strength.
Strength he needed to rescue his royal parents. But as a man, he craved Reda's heated, sizzling touch. With little time left, Dayn had to either embrace his wolf to save his kingdom…or fight it to save his woman.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After his parents curse/bless him by sending him away from the Blood Sorcer, Dayn, a vampire/wolfyn prince, has come to deal with being trapped in another dimension with the wolfyn. He has been waiting 20 years, hoping for the woman his father promised to come and help him get back home. Reda is still recovering from the loss of her partner from work as well as the constant reminder of the loss of her mother years ago as a child. After reading the very adult version of "Little Red Riding Hood", she ends up with Dayn, she is shocked to find out that he is both vampire and wolfyn. As they both come to terms with who they are, and who they are to each other, danger is growing both in the wolfyn's world and in Elden.
I truly loved this book. For anyone who loves a fairy tale retold, this one definitely makes the list for being wonderful. Dayn is struggling with the fact that he has been "cursed" with being both wolfyn and vampire, while Reda feels that she is a liability to anyone who needs protecting. Both deal with the past damages done to them, but at the end, they both have come to accept themselves and each other.
I will say that it was harder to get into Ms. Anderson's book than the others in this series. But once I hit the middle of the book, I gobbled it up faster than a child with Halloween candy and no adult supervision.
As a whole, I think this was a good book. There are several fight scenes that leave you sighing a breath of relief when Dayn or Reda survive as the victor.
I recommend this book, but be sure to read the others first!
**Several adult scenes. Not appropriate for all readers.
