Shifter, Liam Doyle knows Hell. At least he believed he did. The night he feels his mate die, he learns how very wrong he was. Nothing he’d struggled with since Ava’s rejection compares to the emptiness that fills his soul by her death. Lost in his grief, he’s taken by surprise and drugged. When he wakes, everything changes. Nothing is what it seems, and someone is dead set on making him pay.
When Ava Michaels is taken captive, she’s thrust into a dark and terrifying world along with the man she was forced to leave behind. While being near Liam again is heartbreaking, the motive behind her kidnapping is gradually revealed. The more she learns, the more she worries Liam isn’t the man she believed him to be. He has enemies willing to do anything to extract their revenge. Can their love survive a crazy man’s vengeance?
This is my first Abby Niles book and let me tell you I am seriously loving it! The Awakening Series is Dark, Deadly, Dangerous, and full of sexy desire, its highly romantic. Even though there are previous books in this series i didnt feel like i had missed the meaning of this book having not read the others, this book can be read easily as a stand alone.
I dont read many books about shifters, i must confess vampire’s are my paranormal weakness but this book really pulled me in right from the start.
This book pulses with a lush pairing of Liam and Ava the bond they have is wonderful, the story starts off with the heart wrenching pull of what Liam thinks is Ava’s death, this scene is full of pain and its pulls at your insides to read what Liam goes through because of the bond he has formed with Ava.
Ava is a bit in the dark about how the whole bonding thing works between shifters and humans, Liam keeps some things from her to make sure she really loves him for him and not out of obligation, you have to admire him for that eternity is a long time after all.
The story unfolds beautifully and has a great cast of characters who have a fantastic chemistry, this makes the story flow for easy reading.
This book will keep you engrossed for a good couple of hours, you wont even notice the time passing, it is a great paranormal romance that’s easy to follow not too much paranormal mumbo jumbo. You feel like your stepping into another world, and what a great world it is.
