Gordon's novella is part of a trilogy but is definately a stand alone; there wasn't a cliffhanger ending forcing a reader to wait until book two to find out if all is well. There is a bit of a happily-ever-after ending presented. Well, more like a happy-for-now ending, actually. Gordon's werewolf lineage is different, as well as werewolf culture and ideology, making her story a bit different from other offerings concerning werewolves. This reader can only recall one other recent book were a werewolf king had dominion over all werewolves, and the concept that each reigning king can change the rules and laws at his whim was interesting - yet unsettling, as well! Some felt almost 'foreign' to this reader, yet it fit the tale and kept me turning the pages. The story had a strong sensual overtone that truly worked... not quite a love story but definitely a lust story.
Characterization could benefit with more fleshing out, as both protagonist Mia and alpha Dominic were fairly one dimensional in their presentation. While Eva Gordon is a new-to-me writer, and I freely admit I enjoyed her story once those pesky Kindle related glitches were fixed, at this point, I am unsure if I will continue the trilogy or not. I will recommend this novella as a fairly sensuous read and will consider revisiting this different werewolf world again in the future. ** Review originally posted to Amazon reviews on November 27, 2017, and to Goodreads on the same date. **
