Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.
Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric — or Anara will kill everyone she loves.
From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.
Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.
About the Author:
CECY (pronounced Sessy) ROBSON is the Penguin Random House New Adult author of Once Perfect, Once Loved, and Once Pure, and the award-winning author of the Weird Girls Urban Fantasy Romance series. A self-proclaimed professional napper, Cecy counts among her talents a jaw-dropping knowledge of useless trivia, the ability to make her hair big, and a knack for breaking into song despite her family's vehement protests. A writer, registered nurse, and mother living in the South, Cecy enjoys spending time with her family and silencing the yappy characters in her head by telling their stories.
Once again I am blown away by Robson's ability to bring out both the best in me and the worst.
She delivers in another spell binding addition to the Weird Girl series that had me constantly on the edge of my seat never knowing what to expect next. I wanted to reach through the pages and comfort Celia one moment and reach through the pages and strangle Anara the next. Never have I loved so much to hate someone in my life. The only other villain I can possible compare him to would be Dolores Umbridge from my beloved H.P. Series.
I wanted to cry, rage, scream, tear my hair out (okay bad joke here), stomp on my kindle, and gather the Wird sisters and the pack and protect them all, all at once. I don't think I have read a book from Robson that has inspired me to feel so many different things all at once, hence bringing out both the good and the bad in me.
My heart wasn't just ripped out of my chest, it was clawed out, more than once and then stomped on, maybe even spit on for good measure because hey, why not?
It ached. I ached for all the hardships that came between Celia and Aric. Never have two people been more doomed to be together and struggled so hard for their love than these two. And if that wasn't heart wrenching enough, Celia and her sister's relationship became strained as well as Celia had to kept secrets from them all in order to protect them and keep them safe.
I think I need a breather.
I think Robson may have ruined all other UF books for me.
Will anything ever compare to this read? Gah, This. Read.
This. Freaking, Read.
It tore my heart out, stomped on it and then stomped on it some more. I know I said that already but believe me, it bares repeating.
At one point I even had to put this down just so I could get a hold of my self. Too many stinking emotions all at once. I cried so many times it isn't even funny. If I didn't love Cecy so much I might actually hate her a little for the stomach heaving ride this book put me through. But of course I don't hate Cecy, I love her all the more because those emotions? Well they just testified to me all over again how good of a writer she is.
I care about this group of people a LOT. I think about them long after the book has been put down and sometimes even randomly for no reason at all. I love them. I have time, emotions and so much more invested in all of their well being and when they hurt, I hurt and let me tell you, I hurt a lot reading this. It was downright painful at times but it was okay because it made those rare happy moments, those triumphs, all the more wonderful and worth celebrating. I wanted to jump up and down when something godo happened and savor it.
I won't go into too much more detail because really, how much more can I sing this series praises? But truly this is a UF series that is so worth it to read. So worth it to go on that roller coaster ride from hell and then back again because you will love it. You will cherish the ride and when the book is done, you will want to do it all over again and be counting down the days until the next one. Trust me on this.
