One of the first Booktok accounts I stumbled upon was Ally’s, and I’ve loved getting to see whatever new content she comes out with. Normally I’m very nervous, and hesitant, to read author’s work, who mutually follow me on Booktok because I don’t want to not like it and hurt their feelings. This book was one I wasn’t nervous to read, having followed Ally for so long, and knowing we have similar interests when it comes to para-romance and urban fantasy, I felt pretty confident I would enjoy any world she created. Ally did not disappoint.
In this debut novel, we’re introduced to Kee (Kiara), a shapeshifter born from two werewolf parents. Facing rejection, and prejudice, from a young age, Kee has always had to hide her true nature, instead, she lets others believe she’s a werewolf. Only those closest to Kee are ever told her truth.
Kee has been dating Cain, a werewolf, for about a year and can no longer put off meeting his pack. Meeting Cain’s pack will drastically impact, and change, Kee’s life more than she could ever imagine.
The preternatural world is heading towards something, good or bad change is coming. Kee will struggle with who she can and can’t trust, and she’ll have to become stronger than she ever was before.
I’ve always been a fan of strong females and this story starts the evolution of Kee, she’s just a little caterpillar but there are so many signs of the beautiful and wondrous butterfly she will become. The hardest part of reading this book was knowing it’s just the beginning of a series and I have no clue as to when book 2 will drop.
If you’re a fan of urban fantasy and para-romance and need a new world to jump into…pick up this book and dive away!
