I received this book from Netgalley today and this is my review!
So the book follows a guy called Jude and a girl called Letitia. Both are being set-up by their Government, they share an odd connection. On the run together, they have to work out how to rescue Letitia’s friend and Jude’s brother from Lazarus (the bad guy). Strange things are afoot.
This is a pretty bog standard book, Gardiner does a good job at creating a different world within the Wolves and Therians. This is an uncorrected e-copy that I read and it definitely shows. The writer often uses a lot of exclamation marks which makes a lot of the text juvenile and difficult to take seriously.
At the end of the book there are still a lot of loose ends to tie up, I’m hoping these will be cleared up in the next book.
I like Jude and Letitia’s relationship aside from the fact that they’ve known each other .2 seconds and he suddenly loves her. That and some of the writing is very crude when it makes blatant references to things one character knows but the other does not – this isn’t done very smoothly.
I like the idea of this book and feel it could be going somewhere great, definitely a good first book and worth a read if you’re bored.
Bordering a 7/10 – an interesting but ultimately not amazing book. I would definitely give a second book a go.
