This story really packs a punch! Though I normally prefer to immerse myself in the length and detail of full-length novels, this novella certainly does not lack for emotion or action, and I have to say, I loved every word! The main characters, Natalie and Nickolai, were vividly detailed and complex. Every thought, every feeling was completely believable and relatable - which is saying something when dealing with a book from the paranormal genre. The fight scenes were well done and just flew off the page in front of me as I hurried to keep up with the unfolding storyline, not wanting to put it down. Deep underneath, if you pay close attention, there is a deeper implication to this tale which tears down the walls of appearances and prejudices. When I - all too soon - reached the end, I was relieved to discover that this was a prequel to a series. I can't wait to read more, I definitely need more Nickolai and Natalie and will be anxiously waiting for their return! I loved this story and absolutely recommend it.
I rate this novella 5 out of 5 Platypires
