My review

~I received a free copy for my honest review~

3/5 Stars

Definitely action-packed and intense, this short prequel to Dawn Husted’s series held my interest, however, I felt as if it might have moved too quickly. I think it could’ve benefited from some more character development because I felt as I couldn’t really connect to any of them. However, I’ll be reading more in the series because Miss Husted has intrigued me into seeing where Thanatos and Molly’s story will go.
