Genre: Fantasy Romance
Series: League of the Unnatural, book #1
This is a super short read, only 36 pages but Roth packs a lot into that space. This is the first in a series about a group called the League. It is made up of beings with supernatural powers that help protect mankind.
This story sets up the series and introduces the main characters. While most of the book is just one scene that features all the characters, we are getting to know Pike and Adria the best. Pike is a shape shifter that has very protective instincts when it comes to his best friend’s sister, Adria. Adria has the ability to be a sexual lure to the opposite sex as well as some other gifts that would be a spoiler so you have to read this yourself to find out more. We also meet Adria’s brother Adam, whom the next book in the series is about as well as their last member of their team, Lars.
I enjoyed this book for what it was, a very short intro to the series. I will keep reading to see what happens next. The world that Roth created seemed very interesting to me and I would like to see where she goes from here.
*Note: This is rated as a 2 on flames because there is only one sex scene most likely due to it being so short. However, the one scene has explicit language and is somewhat graphic so it may be considered more flame-worthy to others.*
