What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
After pissing off the head of the supernatural lab, failing at befriending my fellow inmates, and pitching a temper tantrum in the underground cafeteria, it was only a matter of time before I had to do something about this whole captivity thing.
For me, Cassandra Thorn, being born as a human, raised by an elite group of supernaturals, and struggling to reach my twentieth birthday was far more fun than this.
Then again, anything would be.
In this case, “this” refers to being taken against my will—kidnapped—and trapped in an underground lab for supernatural shifters. Pretty ridiculous, considering I was a mere mortal.
Or so I was told.
Turns out there are a lot of things I was told, not all of them true. Now a family secret has been revealed and destiny is just waiting for me to fulfill it…but I was stuck in Prison Boringville with a bunch of not-so-friendly detainees.
Being a supernatural inmate isn’t my style, so with the very new powers bestowed upon me, I was getting my booty out of this hellhole. Unless Adonis the sexy incubus, Dominick the deadly fae master, Otis the death-seeking vampire, and Tristan the sly shapeshifter bust me out first.
Please be aware that this is a Reverse Harem series, which features alternative sexual and romantic dynamics which may be more suited to an older audience.
Thoughts on Supernatural Inmate
This is a hard book to review, mainly because I’m still struggling to figure out just what it is!! It’s labeled a PNR RH, and while it is that, it seems to only own that genre in an obscure way. Honestly, it’s more of an urban fantasy with a romantic subtext – and there is not a dang thing wrong with that.
There is love, and the relationships surely matter, but not so much in the grand scope of the plot. The four guys she grew up with (not related) and secretly (not so secretly) Love, appear briefly in the beginning, then again much later in the book. You barely get a chance to know them, though the fifth one that pops up in the prison is far more intrigue worthy, though there seems to be some question about his orientation?
I’m confused, but definitely curious, and I’ll be grabbing book 2 to see where this PNR/Not PNR goes.
It was funny how the positive words always took longer to settle into one’s head, versus the negative ones that left their roots behind to grow. (75%)
- Interesting concept.
- This is obviously the spring board for a larger world.
- I am totally crushing on the dragon in Prison.
- Great Cover!
- Inner strength is the most important thing, and the hardest to find.
- Little disjointed.
- The guys matter… but they also don’t?
- I’m a touch confused about the world building.

My Final Verdict on Supernatural Inmate
Fast, a bit furious and brag your attention immersive, this book kicks off the beginning of what is obviously a much larger universe. With new monsters, familiar themes and challenges still to face, it’s a fun ride – and free on Kindle Unlimited.
