I saw a lot of my GR friends speak very highly of this series and when it came in a boxset and as a deal I snapped it up. I am so glad that I did. Lately I feel as if I haven’t been reading enough PNR/UF so I’ve been looking for new series that are unique and different. The Sons of Wrath is most certainly one of them and I can still play catch up to book 4 so the task isn’t that daunting.
Ayden is Selene. Pure and simple. I don’t know if the author had her mind when it came to the heroine but it just seems to fit. A totally kick arse heroine.
A Beretta, loaded with silver bullets and a silver parrying dagger rested at one of her hips, a silver bullwhip at another. – my kind of heroine.
Ayden is out on the hunt for Lycans. Since her change five years ago and being part of the Alexi, she is out for vengeance there was more taken from her than she initially thought. But she is also a deserter to the Alexi and if they find her. Well, let’s just say it ain’t going to be pretty.
On that night, she runs into a man who is becoming a halfling/changeling and for reasons she can’t fathom she doesn’t kill him and takes him back to the Manor. He has seven days until he turns into a full lycan and a killer and then she kills him.
Kane Walker has lead a normal life until he gets attacked late one night. He imprints, blacks out and wakes up in a strange room. His life is about to end well in 7 days he will be killed but first Ayden wants his memories.
“So, how do you think you’ll go about killing me?” Stupid question. “What the hell is wrong with you?” “What?” “What kind of question is that?” “I don’t know. Just curious to know how you kill a lycan.” “It’s incredible violent.”
Her first urge is to always kill him but her hatred lessens to dislike. Her dislike becomes less and she sees his innocence. I felt as if they didn’t really spend enough quality time together to make them attracted to one another. I felt the connection to be somewhat flimsy.
I’m not entirely sure how Ayden fits in as it seems to be Son of Wrath series but I’m sure Ms. Lake had her reasons there is the obvious world building and I personally think that a fantastic and unique paranormal world has been created. Although there is a lot going on lycans, ghouls, demons and Alexi it all worked for me. It might not work for everyone.
I look forward to the other books with Logan, Gavin, Zeke, Calix, Zayne, Ferno and Maddox.
