The eighth book of this series takes a different direction to the rest, taking us back through history before the merging of the Romanian packs, to a time when Vasile had yet to find his mate. Alina takes advantage of the ALL girls vacation to tell her story in the hopes to share wisdom and give them the insight and strength they will need being mated to such dominant males.
Alina begins the story when she was merely 16 years old and the pack Alphas of the time had ‘moved on’ to their next life. These Alphas were none other than Vasile’s parents. Alina reflects on their first meeting and the first time he used their bond to talk with her, and how her father thought it best she wait till she was of age before completing the mate bond. Alina tells the girls of Vasile’s exile and how he regained what was his. Even the Fae Perizada popped up a few times giving us the sense she much older than anyone could fathom!
Although I thoroughly enjoyed this story I felt there was much less of the usual atmosphere that usually created in these novels. It’s really goes to show that the the three American girls really make the story unique. What sarcasm and humour was added would have been difficult to add in due to the scene set for the storyline. However the story of Vasile and Alina was fantastic even without the sarcastic extras.
Despite this novel not being the favourite of this series I still give it a ranking of 7/10 stars and recommend this book to young to mid teens.
