A great introduction to a new world filled with familiar names (Dracula, Lilith) and brand new faces. Fast paced, this KU gem is sure to please. Pick it up!
What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
I’ve been offered a job at the Night Firm.
To work for four of the hottest men I have ever met.
They don’t tell me what I’ll be doing.
They don’t tell me where I’ll be working.
Simply that I am their only candidate.
If I take the job, I’ll gain financial freedom, a new home, and answers to questions better left unasked. But at what cost?
Because my new job is more than anything I ever imagined. It will take me to the home of Count Dracula and the den of a kitsune. To the paradise of Lilith and a world trapped in time. It will bind me to the most dangerous men alive. It will break me and make me whole.
I may lose them all to the Night brothers.
But in the end, it will be my choice.
My name is Eve Oliver.
Welcome to the Night Firm.
***This is a slow burn reverse harem paranormal romance (and office romance). Note: this book contains themes of suicide and domestic violence that may be triggering to some.***
Thoughts on I Am The Wild
Be prepared…. the cliffhanger is harsh and will leave you questioning EVERYTHING you just read. That said, read it anyway. It’s unique, captivating and fully original – even while it plays with well known names (Dracula!) and tropes. Old takes, new takes – twisted results.
First Person, Single POV
- JUST familiar enough to make sense.
- World building on point.
- Characters are fascinating.
- Has to reread a few sections for clarity.
“Hold fast to dreams, For if dreams die, Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly.” (5%)
Grief is like that, I’ve learned. It lives on the impossible edge between real and unreal. Between waking and dreaming. (24%)
We seldom know what moment will be the last of something. We celebrate the firsts, but we don’t think of the lasts. (26%)
There is no winner in a war against yourself. (88%)
I really enjoyed this book and hope to rate Book 2 a solid 5. This one received a 4 simply for some confusing scenes that needed to be smoothed out – but the plot and foundation of this series is solid, and fantastic. Read it!
