Let’s begin with the fact that the female MC* was called Trisha. That alone gave it more weight when it came to the review. I love that name. I’ve been called that name by my very best friend for ages even though most people don’t know that. CL Rowell hooked me with her story and with that name, driving me to the very end because I couldn’t put the book down.
Trisha’s is living a normal life. As normal as eighteen years old can be, especially one who’s lost a sister. Tanya disappeared six years ago and nobody could find her again. It was a sore subject even for Trisha to talk to her parents about, not that they talked much anyway. So color her surprised when the night of the anniversary of her sister’s disappearance, she goes into the same house and crossed over to another world.
Character-wise, CL Rowell always finds a way to portray compelling ones. Trisha and the cast of this book were strong, resilient, capable, relatable and yes, some were sexy. What do you want me to say? After reading too much paranormal romance I find some creatures, in fiction books, very good looking.
The writing was well done. There were moments in the story where I felt like I lost the flow of it all, just to find it again a couple of pages later, or even some sentences later. I don’t know if it was the world or what. I’m inclined to believe it was just the crossing over from the other world to the human world what confused me a little bit.
I think the rules were set when it came to the paranormal species in this book. I don’t know how they applied to the human world but I can see it working in some strange way. Each race of supernatural creature has a way of being and even though, in some moments, it was implied that the reader should know things about the races, it was easy stuff that wouldn’t affect the reading experience.
I would recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romances, especially if they include vampires, Incubus and a crazed hybrid wink
*MC = a main character.

About the Author
I am a southern girl, born and raised in crawfish country. I love to write romance – and read science fiction and fantasy, horror, romance and erotic romance. I’m a bit of a poet, but mostly when I’m feeling emotional. My friends tend to come to me when they need poems. I’ve been all over the continental US. My fave state? Oregon, because it has it all – beaches, ocean, mountains, caves, valleys, desert. I’ve been to Canada. I’ve driven an 18 wheeler…I’m 5’1″, lol. I wanted to be a race car driver, but my first love is reading/telling stories. Why? Because between the covers of a book, you can go anywhere, be anything, and do whatever you like…all in the span of a few hours.
