Natacha is an Iris, her emotions change her eye colour, but that is just the tip of her powers. Unbeknown to her she has been stalked for the majority of her adult life, by Alex another Iris, who knows that there is something special about her, but when her life is in danger, can he protect the girl he has fallen for. With two villains to confront each with a dodgy past, they are going to have their work cut out.

Natacha throughout this story, never played the damsel in distress, even when she knows of her past, she takes it all in her stride. Alex is your brooding alpha male, who even though he knew what he wanted he never was pushy. The love interest was evenly paced throughout and did not detract from the main story. The author certainly knows how to write a story, this story was full of suspense and with the added twists, made it a real page turner. When I finished it, I wanted to carry on with the story.

A great start to a unique series and I hope that I do not have to wait to long for book 2

 

Cloaked: A Wulfkin Legacy Novella by TF Walsh

Set in Romania, Daciana is on rohang, very similar to the Amish Rumspringa, the only difference is that Daciana is a moonwolf and has to spend her year away from her pack and live with humans. Thanks to her animal instincts she has managed to get a job at the Animal Institute in Brașov, where her main task is to look after 3 young bear cubs, but when the bears go missing, she is in trouble of losing everything. To protect her freedom, she joins up with Connell a police officer to track down who is behind it.

Daciana was very independent woman and with the added threat of her losing everything made her more determined to track down the culprits.

There was an even balance of suspense and romance to keep both genre lovers happy. The author describing Daciana as being a moonwolf, makes me wonder if they are differences between her and a regular werewolf and I hope to find out more in the other books in this series. I enjoyed the way the author concentrated on Daciana and her job and her investigations. Leaving questions unanswered like how will her pack take to her falling in love with a human, has made me want to read more in the series. A good quick read
