After taking a little break from the Immortals After Dark series, MacRieve was the perfect book to welcome me back. Despite the major content warnings (this book tackles some very HEAVY topics which won’t be for everyone), this book was a lot of fun! I had a smile on my face while reading it, yet also found myself constantly going WTF at some of the crazy – so, you know, pretty typical of an IAD book.
CW: Sexual assault; physical assault; violence; torture; death of a pregnant woman
I was in a moody reading rut and decided to pick this up after seeing @bookdragontee binge-read it and rave about it. The Longing of Lone Wolves is an exciting start to the Fae Guardians series. The thing that sold me on the book by the end was the world, even if the world-building dominates this book a bit too much.
I read this book back in April 2022, but I am just reviewing it now so forgive me if this is more high-level of a review than normal as I didn’t take as in-depth notes as I normally do!
Shadow’s Claim is book 12 in the Immortals After Dark series and also serves as book 1 in The Dacians series(a spinoff that is intertwined with IAD) and served as a nice change of pace to some of the really heavy storylines coming out of the Torture Island arc of IAD.
This book surprised me as I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it! The plot, the world, the romance, everything was so good!
