Tate James has knocked this one out of the park! I started this series after finishing Madison Kate and didn't think I would love it as much... it had BIG shoes to fill, but she has done it. I absolutely love getting back into this world - Shadow Grove, and I really enjoyed learning more about the Timberwolves.
Hades is an absolute badass, she is now one of my favourite FMC of all time with her sassy, strong, sometimes vulnerable, and funny attitude! Some of her quick comebacks had my laughing out loud, I love it!
Now onto the boys... Lucas was a surprise to me, I went into this thinking it was going to be all for Cass but I was pleasantly surprised I love him! He's got such a sweet and playful side that I think hades needs, as he said he is certainly her lighthouse in the storms. I also loved that all the relationships evolved at different speeds. The relationship with Lucas was a pretty fast burn while Zed and Cass kind of simmered in the background.
That ending was not expected AT ALL, and I am so keen to dive straight into book 2 to see what happens. I'm also excited to see how the relationship develops with all three boys...
I am hooked!
"I wouldn't, though. I wouldn't fall. Because the second I did, someone would be there to slit my throat and toss me to the sharks. After all, it's what I would do."
