This Kindle Freebie was not a let-down.
This series reminded me of KMM's Fever Series. Like Mac, there is something more to Synthia. Like Barron, Ryder has a carnal beast inside. Synthia also reminded me of Jenn Bennett's heroine, Arcadia Bell, with her witchy ways.
There was repetition throughout the book, such as, repeated internal dialogue. This book could have been tighter. Overall, I'll continue the series because of the characters, world, and unresolved storylines ... cliffhanger! And it was worth the hype. There was just too much unresolved and a little too much repetitiveness to give this book 4 stars.
