River's Recruit by Charlotte Abel {Book Review}


Book One of the Sanctuary Series


I opened this book expecting a different type of story. Especially being labeled as a shifter romance. I was surprised with all the twists and turns that kept me wanting more after each chapter. I do wish there was a bit more action, especially with all the twists that the author takes you on, I was expecting more over the top action to follow along with it. Since it is described as a shifter romance, I think it could have used a bit more romance, but since I normally don't read a lot of romance, I'm not really complaining.

The characters were easy to have strong feelings for, both hate and love. It's a roller coaster of emotions that will take you with the characters to a whole new land. Just the very concept of society being cut from corresponding with one another is scary and intriguing. It really got me thinking about how it would be in today's time.

The ending left a lot of things open, with a huge cliff hanger. I wasn't sure there was to be a second book, and this left me quite frustrated, but considering the huge cliff hanger I was pretty confident the author had the intentions of writing a sequel. I'm anxious to read the second book, so keep a look out for my future review of River's Remorse.

I'm happy to give this book 5/5!
