Son of No one was a good read; unfortunately, it did not wow me” ~ Under the Covers

Son of No one was a good read; unfortunately, it did not wow me. It could be that I’m still reeling over Styxx that at this moment I’m expecting a read at similar caliber. Alas, this book was not.

Let me tell you why I liked it. Kenyon has a knack for writing tortured heroes and Cadegan is one of them.  Just like Styxx, he was banished and had to survive in a very harsh world, poor guy.  Kenyon paired him up with Josette, a mere human and cousins to the Devereaux sisters. She was a total trooper having to accept that the paranormal world is indeed real and not as crazy as she always thought.  I liked her; I thought she was a strong woman and good enough to be Cade’s match.

As far as the “Dark Hunter world”… well, Kenyon can never go wrong with that.  Seeing and reading about the past characters are always a treat.  I love that they all still play a major roles in each other’s lives; from the DH to the Katagari family, Devereaux sisters, Ash and Stxx, Simi, etc. There are some characters that I’ve completely forgotten about that I had to look up…yes, because I could not recall who they were.  There will be a twist in Thorn’s character, and the Malachai have yet to show it’s wrath upon the DH but the hint of trouble is there.  There was a good set up for Illarion and Thorn which I thought would be the next book but when I looked it up, it will actually going to be about Max.  Looks like Kenyon fans will get their dose of shifters in the next DH novel.

And for the cons of the book, there are a few things that  did not sit right with me.  I will attempt not to give too much info, but there are a few scenes that just made me question and reread the page.  There is a hint of the movie “Big” or “Freaky Friday” that to me was a bit disturbing (If you really want to know this, please message me, and I will tell you).  Another thing is that Cadegan and Jo had an insta-love I just couldn’t over look.  There were too many scenes that happened quick and accepted even quicker.  Last, the addition of Lords of the Avalon, King Arthur and the memory of the past confused me a bit.  Though I enjoyed the merging of the books, it took me while to adjust.  There is just so much going on in this world that it’s hard to remember every detail.  Unfortunately, the recap was not as clear as I would like it.  Perhaps a reread would be a good idea before reading this installment.

Overall, Son of No One was still a good read.  I can’t wait for Max’s Book.  I’m sure it’ll be full of Sanctuary’s usual characters which I know will be a treat for most.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
