I love the way SK is able to integrate soooo many aspects into this one world. It makes it so much more appealing and interesting that it’s really hard to walk away from once you finish the book. ~ Under the Covers

True to Sherrilyn Kenyon’s ways, we have another tortured hero who seems to have a heart of gold! Wren Tigarian is probably the most sweetest, gentlest soul of the bunch and there was something about him that made me want to curl up and hug him. As I read UNLEASH THE NIGHT, I became so attached to Wren that I felt that if anyone threatened him, I would definitely rip them a new one. He has become my baby.

I won’t go into a ton of details about the plot but Wren is a Tigard and he’s been having trouble dealing with this other side of himself. Even as a powerful white tiger, he sees himself as an abomination so the romance he finds with Marguerite seems very new to him. He doesn’t see himself worthy to be with a Senator’s daughter. But Maggie holds on to him and I think it’s so sweet that she sees him in a bright light because it soon changes how Wren sees himself as well.

The tone of this book felt a little different to me than the others. It almost feels like a Young Adult book with the way SK approaches the romance. It’s very unsure and tentative and it blooms quite fast and furious as first loves often do. Also playing into that part is the emphasis on the taunting and hassling by Maggie’s friends in the beginning which reminds me of the sort of thing you’d find in YA books. Maggie and Wren just seemed like two young hearts finding love for the first time and it was such a thrill to read it.

Readers are introduced to Savitar as well and I find him sooo intriguing. He better get his own book! I’m dying to know more about him!

There’s a time travel aspect to this book that makes this book really unique. There was a time there that confused me but overall, it definitely made this book a better one. I love the way SK is able to integrate soooo many aspects into this one world. It makes it so much more appealing and interesting that it’s really hard to walk away from once you finish the book.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Wren!! One of my series favorites for sure. I think the books leading up to, and including, Acheron are the best 🙂

I really need to re-read this series. Those first books are some of the best and Wren’s is one of my favorites ♥ Savitar is so enigmatic & elusive and I love the tidbits we get of/from him throughout the series. Unfortunately, we don’t have a Savitar book yet, but I hope we get one in the very near future.

I’m hoping that SK does a book for Savitar!! I would LOVE to read that. I’m pretty excited for Styxx though!

This was one of my favorites. I haven’t been keeping up with the series since “Acheron”, but if she writes Savitar’s book (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE) I will be all over it!

Aw Wren was one of my favorite sin that series. It’s been years since I’ve read it though. I’ll second the needing to go back and re-read the series. Some of those early ones were amazing!
