Wren Tigarian has been a mystery in previous books. One you want to know about, but also one you know isn’t going to be without pain. A loner, tortured by his past, hated for what he is believed to have done and quiet to the point of everyone being suspicious, it is believed Wren is crazy and just one step away from killing. What is perceived by the supporting characters isn’t really who Wren is between the pages. A sensitive soul who has a monkey on his shoulder, he fights his Tigard side not having been shown love or acceptance.

Nick has disappeared and some of his study buddies are having a drink for him at the bar, Sanctuary, when Maggie meets Wren. Maggie is the daughter of a senator and probably as different from him as Wren is from a kitten. Wren doesn’t feel he is good enough for Maggie, but can’t fight the protective feelings he has for her. This is more of a sweet, new found love story than the eternities old Dark-Hunter story. Wren is incredibly gentle with Maggie, but also very protective.

Forces are brewing to get Wren thrown from Sanctuary, where he has lived for years. Being blamed for his parents deaths, you get to see more of the shifter side of this series. Savitar has a bigger role and while you don’t learn who or what he is, he does lay down some really harsh wrath on a few people.

While this is a Dark-Hunter book, it had a different feel to it. Everything seemed innocent and sweet as the two fall in love. Maggie learns to stand up to her father with the support of Wren, while Wren comes to terms with a past he can’t run away from any more. It almost felt like a New Adult book, but that genre wasn’t even around when this came out.

This is probably one of my favorite Dark-Hunter books. While Wren is a tortured soul, the story didn’t go overboard in describing all the bad things one person can put up with during their life. Wren was a yummy hero with a sweet heroine with a steel back-bone.

I loved the early books in this series. Not so much lately.

That’s neat how she put some variety in her series by including this sweet ‘less than centuries old’ romantic pair and that their romance developed well instead of instalove.

I loved having two really broken characters finding each other for an epic love story.
