I decided to just do a big ol review. Where you excel at is character dynamics. I love the interactions between all the characters Jude, Xiomara, Hailey, Camden, Aria, Genie hell even Irma and the goons despite their lack of human consciousness lol. You excel at character building as well.
Read the story now
Right now the best character there I'd say is either Jude or Camden because you have shown their worries and fears and such. Now Aria is missing a goal and motivation for that goal until chapter 14. She kinda meanders about goalless. What I mean by this is that she is there, but not fully realized because of not wanting something.
Despite the awesome dialogue and sexy times, lol, your character becomes more than that when you give them a reason for being. Same with the others, tho Xiomara is def done pretty well. I understood her goal as being lead soldier and taking it pretty seriously. Out of the women, she is the best-made female character.
Plotwise it's great! I've yet to encounter this type of plot and by that, I mean the sun-worshipping werewolves vs the moon-worshipping werewolves and hunters due to that and not due to them being werewolves.. That part is original and I really like it I feel the book can be different from others enough to be recognized as its own deal if that angle is worked on more.
It has a good pace most times so that's good Theme is too early to pick out yet but and is different for everyone. I also like the fact that Camden and Aria are mates but it wasn't insta love. Much appreciated lol. They are getting to know each other pft tho it's been cut short. Now comes the real trials. Anyone can like their mate when they aren't put into danger, stressed, or aren't angry, or depressed lol. Welcome to the real fun.
I hope this isn't all of it lol, and more is to come. It has sparked my interest and the characters are awesome even Irma the stinker lol.
