Some rules cannot be broken. Ever. Until it happens. Twice.
Cal Taylor hates his life. A neglectful mother, an abusive stepfather, and town thugs all conspire to tear him down. But, he never could have imagined that his dreams of striking out on his own would take him to a whole different world.
When he stumbles into the mystical Faedin, he can’t help but be drawn to the beautiful girl who captures him. Stassi is everything he’s not. Confident. Strong. Ruthless. More animal than human really. Before he knows it, they’re caught in a dangerous struggle for survival and neither are prepared for the cunning of the serpent that slithers just out of sight.
New Adult, Mature Themes, 16+
I think the thing that struck me the most with this novel was the fact that Valerie Zambito was able to connect me to her characters from the get go. It really added investment in the story and what happened to the characters.
The plot was very well paced and while some parts were easy to predict, it led to a great read overall.
You will not be disappointed by the world Valerie Zambito has created and the mythical creatures that have come from her imagination.
