My Thoughts:
Short and sweet read.

There isn't much of a plot. Just an introduction to this world and the main characters and a big cliffhanger ending. However, it does have great story telling quality, now am hooked! The thing is, reverse harem is not my genre. But I was already halfway through this book before I realised that it is a reverse harem! And then again, I am kind of partial towards cat shifters and Terrin is a jaguar shifter... That speaks of the character development that is solid! Speaking of which... The good news is, the heroine is not too stupid to live. The bad news is, at 177 pages long (print ed.), the book is too freaking short!

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 4.5
Character development = 4
Story itself = 4
Writing Style = 4.5
Ending = 3
World building = 5
Cover art = 3
Pace = 4.5
Plot = 1.5

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries

About Cali Mann:
I devoured my mother’s Gothic romance collection when I was a teen, so you can say that dark romance and I go way back. Give me a cozy chair, a snuggily feline, and a book any day.

I’ve been dreaming up my own magical worlds since I was small, and I’m so excited to share them with you.
