I am a huge fan of urban fantasy and this did not disappoint. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
Perhaps I should do you all a solid and go over the main three supernats. There is a glossary, but you know how it is with ebooks; it's not the easiest thing in the world to flip back and refer to them.
(These are my own descriptions, not the ones from the glossary)
Alexi - So Ayden, the main character, is an Alexi - someone bitten by a Lycan, but not turned because they contain a natural resistance in their DNA. They have all the perks, though, like enhanced speed, strength, etc. They're programmed (or brainwashed) to kill Lycans on sight and are generally quite rage-filled. They are assisted in the change by one man with a special serum that helps transform them. He can also, somehow, strip them of their pre-change memories if, for instance, they recall their family being eaten by Lycans right before they "died". You wouldn't want to carry that for eternity, right?
Lycans - Shapeshifters, usually appearing as werewolves. Mostly barbaric, mindless killers.
Sons of Wrath - a group of seven brothers who are also vengeance demons. As in, if someone has a grievance, they can be called upon to exact revenge on their behalf. Funnily enough, this first book isn't about any one of them, but we got to touch on what it is they do a bit towards the end, and meet them as secondary characters.
The romance between Ayden and Kane was well played, I thought. Kane has to be the most amiable prisoner/kidnapee I've ever read about, lol. He was also a total doll, and a nice balance to Ayden who is, as an Alexi, full of rage. I liked the pace at which the relationship developed and changed. Ayden's reluctance was endearing, but, ultimately, who could resist Kane? He's just such a cutie!
To wrap up, although SOUL AVENGED is not a perfect book, and there were a few issues at the beginning as I've already laid out, it is very good and definitely worth a read for fans of Paranormal Romance looking for something a bit different. I want the second book, like, now. *waggles eyebrows at author*
4 Stars ★★★★
ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Soul Avenged is the stunning opener to the 'Sons of Wrath' series and if I could describe it as anything it would be 'kinda like BDB, but with Lycans as the enemy'. The first book is about Ayden, an Alexi warrior, reborn to kill lycans.... after escaping the clutches of her tyrannical 'General' who brought her back from the brink of death, took her memories, desensitised her & made her into a killing machine, Ayden comes across the 'Sons of Wrath' who are vengeance demons and will help her find vengeance against the one who ended her human life. Years later, Ayden stumbles upon a recently bitten human who will turn into a lycan in the next seven days (if she doesn't kill him first) and the only thing stopping her from killing Kane is the visions his touch brings, like memories, making her feel for the first time she can remember. She quickly realises that the visions may help her in tracking down her own attacker so against her better judgement and the need to kill, she takes him to the 'Sons of Wrath' mansion in the hopes of unlocking more visions.... she just doesn't bank on unlocking her feelings... which begs the question... will she really kill him once the seven days are up?
So yeah, this book was amazing and I loved it! It's definitely UF at its best and just the way I like them. We have a strong kick ass female, damaged but determined & driven to find the one who did it to her. Ayden is an admirable character, I really empathised with her & enjoyed seeing her icy facade melt away over the course of the book, softening her character up. it was nice to see her find some peace in her harsh world. The storyline was great, who doesn't like a good whodunit with a bit of vengeance thrown in, add to that a sprinkling of romance & sexytime and I was hooked. I like the world set up, it was gritty, harsh & violent & that is not a bad thing in my book. I like the 'Sons of Wrath' and what they stand for...I'm guessing all of the brothers will get there own books and they deserve them because their characters come across so well in this even though they are mostly secondary characters, they all made an impact with their individual personalities & their brotherhood, leaving me curious about every one of them. I like the Alexi warrior thing too, even though the 'general' is a dick, every set of bad guys needs someone to kick their ass and they sure were kicking the Lycan's butts. I'll be curious to see what becomes of them following the conclusion of this. To be honest, this was just a perfect book for me, everything about it and if I had to grumble about one thing it would be that I preferred our leading lady's relationship with her ex - I felt their relationship more, felt they connected better & shared a background - more than I did with her chosen one... but that's just my opinion and in no way spoils my opinion of the book. Awesome start to the series though and can't wait for more!
