If you’re interested in archaeological,supernatural, crime, action packed romp, well you found your series. :D
Although, I should say here that the story is rounded off for this book quite well.
“Archaeologist Zoe Miller has been running from a haunting secret her whole life. But when her cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian kidnapper, Zoe is left with only one option: to reveal herself.
Unknown to even her closest friends, Zoe is not entirely human. She’s a werewolf and a daughter of the “Fangborn,” a secretive race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles embroiled in an ancient war against evil.
To rescue her cousin, Zoe will be forced to renew family ties and pit her own supernatural abilities against the dark and nefarious foe. The hunt brings Zoe to the edge of her limits, and with the fate of humanity and the Fangborn in the balance, life will be decided by an artifact of world-ending power.”
I really liked Zoe because she tried to control her “beast” for quite a number of years before actually learning what she was and succeeding in it quite well.
As you start learning about what is happening to her, it becomes obvious she is not the regular Fangborn (seems both her parents are special).
One of the greatest things about this novel is that each time I thought this better be explained later because it makes no sense at the moment, it was. That was such a relief. As readers are slowly introduced into the story and many things are not obvious from the start.
One thing readers of paranormal novels should bear in mind is that these paranormal creatures are a bit different than what is “standard” in these novels. Which is always a benefit in my mind. :) Especially the part where the Fangborn feel this incredible need to fight against evil.
The other thing I absolutely loved in the book is so many little life truths hidden in the story. If you’re not paying attention, you just might miss them.
Then there are some “Lara Croft” moments but I didn’t mind them, it fit with the story.
So basically like I said, a supernatural, archaeological romp. Fun! :)
