Sadie Pemberton is the DJ at the hottest vampire club in New York City, and she loves her freedom almost as much as she hates werewolves. She has no desire to tie herself to anyone for eternity—even the deliciously sexy Killian Bane—werewolf prince and heir apparent who has been sent to patrol the city.
But Sadie bears the mark of the moon—the mark that Killian has been looking for, the mark that’s meant to reveal his perfect mate. How can the fates be so cruel? Even more importantly, how is he ever going to change her mind?
It must be said that though this is #3 in the series, it’s the first I read by the author and obviously from the series, lol. Everything and everyone made perfect sense to me, I didn’t feel like there was something I must have missed at any time during the read.
Worldbuilding: With that in mind, I freaking loved the world of Vampires Never Cry Wolf! The vampire society was very interesting, the werewolves one as well, and I loved how different they were. Because I’m a geek for society-building, yes, I know 😛
Characters: Sadie was very easy to like and empathize with, vampire though she may be. We clicked from the very first moment, like page 1, and I loved her more and more as the story went on. She was strong, kind of stubborn (to me, always a plus, lol!), but also considerate and caring, a little hesitant every now and then. A round, well put together and realistic character.
Of course I loved Killian, because you know I’m an alpha male fangirl, haha! All the better when he’s a werewolf. It was particularly fun to see him through Sadie’s eyes and through his own, and though he didn’t handle one daddy-meeting moment that well, he did get his head out of his a$$ in time. Hurrah!
The two fun, charismatic characters had awesome chemistry, steaming hot one on one moments. Loved them as a pair.
Plot: The romance arc builds up tension nicely, I loved how they were in contact basically all of the novel but the love affair was the slow burn type, even though based on insta-attraction – which is totally realistic, if you ask me.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, his and her POV.
Curb Appeal: Yummyy cover, hooking blurb => total impulsive buy candy xD
All in all, this was a great paranormal romance. I loved the characters, the writing, the world, the pace – all of it. Give it a try, it’s totally worth it. And I’m sure the rest of the series has to be good, though I didn’t read it myself. This read like a standalone not just fine but awesomely, so I trust the rest to be just as delish in whatever order you might get to read them 😀
