“It’s clear that McMaster is able to dabble in quite a lot of different genres.”
~ Under the Covers

As you can plainly see, I’m on a little bit of a Bec McMaster kick. After devouring her Dark Arts series, I plan on going back and reading all of the other books she has written. I was intrigued by this series because it’s a Fantasy series, something totally different from her.

It’s clear that McMaster is able to dabble in quite a lot of different genres. Her voice matches the genre well and I like how she is so readily able to customize her words/voice for this genre.

The beginning of the book moves at a very fast paced and to be honest, I was a little surprised by this. Usually with Fantasy novels, the author takes their time to explain the world a bit more, but since the action makes up for it, I can’t really be too mad.

The heroine, Freyja, is a unique one. She’s fierce and independent and I love the fact that she wasn’t afraid to confront Rurik at all. McMaster always writes really strong heroines, so I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised to see her running headlong towards the dreki.

Rurik has a superior vibe to him, making him feel much more otherworldly and kingly. You truly get the feeling that he is something else entirely and I really loved that. However, the author also does a great job of bringing these two together. There’s a lot of tension at first, but then it turns into something else entirely. I really enjoyed watching it all unfold.

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!
