Marcus has his own reasons to hate the Keepers. A scientist who sacrificed himself to test the fragile boundaries between witch and wolf, he believes there's a way to harness the combustible power between the two species. If he succeeds, he'll be protected from the Keepers, but he needs a willing partner—and the delicious Katie just might be the perfect test subject.
Katie knows working with a wolf, an adversary she's undeniably attracted to, is a dangerous proposition...no matter how tempting she finds Marcus's proposal. But when a common enemy from their past threatens them both, working together might be the only option.
Now don't get me wrong I do like a good werewolf romance story but sometimes I get a bit fed up of fated mates and all that malarkey! I can't be the only reader to see the flaw in that idea, as let's be honest whole species could die out! Oh and yes, I know its fiction but as a reader I want to be completely engulfed by an author's world building. So it was with great anticipation and excitement that I sat down to read this book.
Katie has spent a long time hiding from her coven and all her fellow witches. She's pretending to be dead whilst working in a tattoo parlour but it looks as if her identity is about to be discovered. She's powerful but there's a wolf sniffing around and it looks as if Katie will have to do something pretty drastic to get rid of him.
Marcus is a scientist and now all he lives for is the answer to controlling his inner beast and magic. He has allowed himself to be transformed into a wolf in order to get answers to why his sister was murdered. The covens fear him and he's on the run but, quite by chance, he stumbles upon a witch in hiding and quickly realises that together they could find the answers he seeks.
The attraction between Katie and Marcus is fierce but hatred is a strong emotion too. Can Marcus convince Katie that helping him in his experiments will help free all wolves and witches, or is he too late and a mutual enemy is about to rip them apart?
Amazing world building yet again from this imaginative author and quite unlike anything else I've read. It's hard to review without spoilers but the idea of witches and wolves having common ground is not one I've seen written about before. It's a plot that pulls you in and doesn't stop as this roller coaster of a storyline keeps going.
As for the characters, well Marcus is one seriously inventive male! Strong, determined, and did I mention talented! His skills are not wasted though as he puts them to good use on the heroine, Katie, who is such a loyal and likable character. A villain who deserves putting down, just adds to the action and I loved the humorous interactions with Katie's father.
As I've mentioned, the two lead characters definitely have very strong chemistry but I thought Ms Wallace kept the sexual tension cranked up which just added to the fun. Trust me, those scenes are very well written and seriously hot! I'm not sure if this is part of a series but if it is, then I'd definitely read more as I'd like to explore this unique idea more.
As it is, I did feel there was a lot to wrap my head around, but this author is so good at making her readers use their brains and not just their libido. When you read a romance by Ms Wallace, you are most definitely not on auto pilot but fully engaging all your senses!
Another amazing book from this author and hopefully more to come soon.
