Recommendation: Oh my. Yes. You love the connection between Celia and Aric. And the fight to survive.
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird ...
Celia’s a girl in trouble. Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction. And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)
In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her. And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric .
"Are you ready, Celia?"
*I read to this book for an honest review from the publisher.
My Thoughts and Summary:
Celia's staying at Misha's, training to be a valuable weapon for the Alliance against the Tribe. Misha desires more. Then Celia meets another that is destined for more. Celia's not ready for more with any, other than her mate. Someone is trying to kill Celia. Over and over again.This someone is percipient and insistent that Celia is to die as she is a threat to their existence. With all the complications and stress around Aric, Misha, attempts on her life, and sisters, Celia is ready for any mission she can get against the Tribe. But there are greater threats that will come.
A roller coaster ride of emotions with Celia, her sisters, the wolves, and so many more. My heart thumps for them, in excitement and in tribulation. But my thoughts in the end are always for hope with the moments we do see it.
Dang! I'm waiting for the NEXT story. I need to see what Celia does next!
I can see many different views coming from this book. There is a good bit of tribulation for the girls and many more in this book. It's good to see some come through, but not all do. The heartache can go both ways with readers in this series. This is the third book of the series, I'm not sure what others will think, but I'm thinking mixed thoughts will come about. I love the struggle, that love IS worth it. But there is a lot of struggle and some might be ready for that to be easing up. *shrug shoulders* We will see. I think there is a string of hope left for us to grasp to, while we wait for the next book.
I love reading these books they are full of everything in the Urban Fantasy and Romance realms. From the magic to feeling my heart bleed for them all. I'm holding out hope though. I have too. I know love is not easy and life creates massive obstacles. But to fight the way Celia and Aric have. Wow. This is some love for them.
Oh man. I love Celia. I love Aric. I love the sisters and all the wolves and weres in this book. Heck, I love the vampires too! But... Can we throw a girl a bone? The heartache I feel with Celia. Wow. Celia is struggling, but doing her best with her Aric situation. Part of me understands yet the other part doesn't, on how Celia's three sisters are accepted by the Elders and Celia is not. In this token, the were Elders irritate me. Aric is even struggling as well. Gods! This couple hurts and eases my heart as I read.
Cecy has left some breadcrumbs and planted a few seeds in this book. I'm curious to see how they play out in the future. There are little things mentioned that I am curious to see if she uses in future books, and with whom they are used on. Interesting. Nicely added Cecy, nicely added.
I enjoy the clear divisions and little ways of each supernatural race. I enjoy the surprising ways we learn of the vampires ways, yes Celia is as new to their ways as us so it's very surprising. Even the were ways. Interesting to learn little things we do of the different weres and of the mated bond.
Oh, I'll be waiting for the next book with Celia. Most definitely. I'm three books in and FULLY vested with Celia and the Weird sisters. I WILL be seeing them through to the end!
