Ms. Wilde can tell one hell of a story. She blended magic and myth with shape shifter legend to produce a unique story. I haven’t seen many snake shifter stories, and when I read the blurb for this one. Snakes give me the hee bee gee bees which made this deliciously wicked and creepy! She told the story with a
plot twist I truly enjoyed. The woman turned the male. Nira comes from a long line of people trying to save the world from the evil shifters known as The Thrall. Battle hardened, and bound tight by duty from the moment she was old enough to understand she’s not your average heroine. Sassy, tough, and
removed she fought her emotions for Daram. Nira’s bravery and selflessness were admirable, but I wanted to see more of whom she was beneath it all.
Daram, poor guys. Attractive, but extremely awkward, and shy he’s pulled into the middle of a war he knew nothing about. Chosen by Nira who assured him she’ll give him everything he ever wanted, he’s still adjusting to being a snake shifter when the task of saving the world is dumped on his lap. I liked his
realism. Instead of rushing head first into a blazing building *figuratively speaking*, he balks. His struggle to find his inner courage, and become the man he never thought he could be made me smile and root for his victory.
I would’ve liked to see more of them together, and their connection to fully cement the fact these two were meant to be together. This story is an easy, yet engrossing read with lots of naughty romps
between the action.
