Forbidden Alliance Review & Giveaway

Hello Everyone! I have a review of Forbidden Alliance by Danae Ayusso and a giveaway for 3 ebook copies of the book. Now on to the review!!

Forbidden Alliance
By Danae Ayusso

A New Adult Werewolf/ Vampire romance: filled with intense emotion, strong stubborn possessive characters and a whole lot of secrets to be revealed! 

This is a story of Jay Dee, A 17 year old girl who was orphaned at an early age. She has lived with the local pack alphas most of her life, while they have accepted her for being different, the other pack members have not. Her life changes dramatically when vampires move to town. Secrets are revealed, memories resurface and true love is found. 

I would like to thank the author for giving me this book for my honest review. This book...I am at a lose for words, I so enjoyed it and all that the plot entailed. I almost think of this book as being two different stories: it starts with the budding romance between a werewolf teen and a vampire ancient; sounds similar to other stories but I can honestly say it is not. While Jay Dee is still a teen she is strong, powerful and never whiny. She is a tomboy, growing up with little so she appreciates everything she has and is stubborn, never asking for help. She has a kind heart and truly loves her family, protecting them when necessary. The vampire that soon becomes her world only makes her life better; the chemistry is instant and amazing even though they are complete opposites. I found myself sighing, overwhelmed with the emotion flowing between Jay Dee and the Vampire. It was intense, pulling you in almost experiencing it yourself! The love builds and heat then ensues...

The second half of the book was focused more on the plot and how things are not what they seemed. Dreams start to occur, secrets start to be found out and the plot starts to thicken. I was at the edge of my seat, watching the page numbers mumbling "It can't end here, it better not end now"...until it did end with a cliff hanger making me want to beg for book two. 

One of the best parts of this book is how it is written in both vampire and werewolf POV. You get to hear and see the interaction from both sets of eyes, feel their individual emotion and fall completely in love with both of them. The secrets that are revealed makes reading book 2 a necessity. I give this book a 4 out of 5, I suspect this series is just going to get better and better and I want to be along for the ride that's for sure!

  2. Oh, any kind of Shifter? Lets think... An immortal shifter I think. Live forever, and shift into anything or anyone.

    If I could be a shifter, I'd be a wolf. Wolves are strong, powerful and have a very keen sense of family and togetherness.
