As war looms between the two species, the Demon Lord is determined to find Annabelle – little does she know, the truth behind his sinister actions is about to unravel.

When Annabelle discovers that she is not the true daughter of the Alpha in her pack, her world, as she knows it, comes crashing down and she finds herself running to hide from the tyrannical Demon Lord who is hell-bent on finding her.

Despite her objections, she is taken to the court of the Werewolf King. He’s arrogant, stubborn and discerning of her very being, but willing to defend her… for now.

Will the Werewolf King yield to the Demon Lord’s ultimatum and give her to the enemy or will she be the cause of a looming war between the two species?

More importantly, what does the Demon Lord want with Belle? She’s only a werewolf… isn’t she?


Review:  This story had a lot of things going for it! There were things I loved. The premise was intriguing, and the world was unique. It had a wide variety of supernatural beings, and a big world to play in. It was the lack of details and execution that brought the rating down for me.

I wasn’t a fan of our lead characters. Annabelle had a very whiny, immature, and everyone wants me vibe going and it was just too much for me to get over. I would’ve liked to see more growth and maturation during the story arc. It would’ve changed the way I felt.  Keith felt over the top and one note. He was often angry, and nearly paranoid with the way he frequently jumped to conclusions.

Two immature characters felt like too much. Still, the plot itself kept me turning the pages. There were fantastic plot twists as well. With a little tightening, taming, and development this could be one killer read.
