Synopsis As per Goodreads:
Being unique isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
After searching all over the world for someone as unique as she is, Racquel finds herself back in her home town where she’s treated like a monster ready to kill. Racquel is one of the most unique beings ever created. Four of the most powerful beings in the Shadow World are intertwined within her, making up her unique DNA. But no matter how unique her bloodline is, she’s considered an outcast by the entire Shadow World.
Once arriving home, Racquel finds that greater evils exist and that the person she cares for most in this world, her half-sister Addie, has been kidnapped along with other Shadow World beings. Racquel finds herself facing horrible odds with those who would rather see her dead than alive.
As her journey continues, Racquel learns more about herself, what she is capable of, and that not every being looks at her as an abomination. Coy, a human captive that Racquel saves from the Vampires, starts showing kindness toward her. Racquel tries putting distance between her and the human boy but as they spend more time together it becomes harder and harder for Racquel to fight the affection she wants and needs.
But will Coy’s friendship and her new found discoveries be enough to help Racquel unravel the strangest mystery that has ever plagued the Shadow World?
Author: Brandy Nacole
Where did I get the book: From the Author – Thank you for giving me the chance to read your work!
Would I recommend it: Yes!
Racquel, an outsider from her own kind as well as the human race. Unique in a way that cannot be forgiven by the Shadow races. On a quest to save her sister she starts discovering more about herself, her heritage and that of those around her. You cannot help but care for her.
Well – there was very little that wasn’t good. I enjoyed seeing how the other characters started loosening up around Racquel. Especially Ethan. I like reading all the little facts about the Fae, Lycans, Witches etc. Therefor in turn I think it was quite clever how Brandy Nacole made Racquel ignorant about her heritage.
The Not so Good:
Danika’s uptight attitude started grating on my nerves after a while and I wasn’t a big fan of Coy (I cannot stop thinking of fish when I read his name).
Jarred on the other hand, I really enjoyed. I know this is more then likely never going to be in the cards (if the blurb on blood burdens is anything to go by) but I found myself wishing that Racquel would get with him. I think I just have a weakness for the bad guy. I very much enjoyed the ending. The perfect way to end the book and still make me want to pick up the next one.
