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.
