Haflings. Hell hounds. Evil Scientists. Suspicious godfather. Nikki Youngblood gets all of those things at one time.
The Haflings (Raven, Mace, and Vine) are sent to protect Nikki from the evils that lie ahead. Mace and Raven both like her, but a relationship with her is forbidden. Nikki does her best to not have a relationship with either of them, but that proves difficult as she is often in danger.
What will she do?
About the author- Heather Burch currently lives in Florida with her husband and sons. She loves fiction and has learned that writing is her hearts desire.
My thoughts- I’m not sure what I think about the Haflings, but I do like Nikki Youngblood. It is refreshing to find a female character who doesn’t fall for every guy who pays attention to her. Nikki is also resourceful and knows what she wants, so she goes and gets it.
It was Mace and Raven, the Hafling teen boys, that were more focused on romance that they should have been. I don’t think that teen boys should be portrayed as love sick boys. It doesn’t show us how young men should act towards young women. It doesn’t set a good example for young women as well, because young women need strong young men.
I enjoyed all the action from the hell hounds attacking to a godfather that Nikki doesn’t trust. I liked this book and I hope you do too.
