On her twentieth birthday, Lynnie Russell—just a little ol’ thing from down in Havana, Arkansas—falls in love under a full silver moon.
Waking up the next morning naked and caked in blood, Lynnie is faced with a horrifying truth. She’s death incarnate.In a race to unearth what she’s become, Lynnie must hide her beastly thing from those she loves most.
If only to keep them alive.When an unexpected ally offers help, how can she refuse?
The thing with fate or destiny is you can’t change it. What is meant to be will be. Lynnie Reynolds had to learn the hard way. There’s a lot she must endure but in the end, she is a warrior.
The story has a peculiar and interesting take on fae and shifter. The author has added her own twist on fae/shifter folklore and created a world where magic does exist. Secretly but it does exist. I appreciated the little details she added such as the language of magic spoken and names of the other world. The characters were quite entertaining! Mama Lee was one of my favorites. I like the fact that Lynnie had to figure stuff out on her own. Learn as you go. Her choices had consequences. Some of the sayings had me laughing! There were some I hadn’t heard before. I even shed some tears at some heartfelt and crushing moments. Ah good times.
This is a pretty good read. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. If you’re wanting a different take on fae, magic and shifters, check this book out. I give this 4 stars.
