There were so, so many new books hitting the shelves this week – I think it was the biggest release week so far this year, actually. I am reading the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill right now, so I am looking forward to this week’s release of Biting Cold. And Lora Leigh‘s Breeds is one very, very guilty indulgence, so I am happy Stygian’s Honor is on the way. But my pick of the week is actually the final book from Christina Dodd‘s Chosen Ones series, Wilder. The thing about this series is that it doesn’t follow “normal” rules, with things like timeline jumps to move the story along. This one was never a top-tier series for me, but it was a good, solid read that I quite enjoyed.
As a young man, Aleksandr Wilder abandoned his duty–and for that lapse, he was tortured, tormented … and transformed. Now he prowls the tunnels beneath the city, fighting on the frontline against the forces of hell, never daring to dream that he can live as a man again.
After seven years fighting the world’s ultimate evil, Chosen One Charisma Fangorn has become a tough, strong warrior without illusions or joy…even her gift of hearing the earthsong has faded. Deaf to her own instincts, she never suspects that a monster lurks in the dark underneath the streets.
When Aleksandr finds Charisma under attack, he rescues and cares for her, and hope stirs once more in his heart…and in the world. But in the secret recesses of his soul, he knows the truth. A woman so exceptional woman never love a beast…could she?
