I'm really sorry for being so quiet lately but i got sick and it was more serious than i first thought so during 3weeks i couldn't read or do anything i was down with the fever and pain, it's not finished yet but at least my mind is clearer. However because of that i'm late to review some books so thank for the authors' understanding and i will do my best to read and review as quickly as possible to get back on track... that's my priority.
So i'm starting with Unspeakable the second book in the Beyond Human series.... if you remember i loved book 1 so when i was offered the opportunity to read and review book 2 i was jumping with joy.... i'm not disappointed at all! Nina Croft sure did wonders but let see that in detail.
Publisher: Entangled Publishing (Select Otherworld)
Genre: paranormal romance, sciences fictionSource: eARC
Let's start with some advice. If the little recap at the beginning of this second book is quite useful and could help someone new to the series to feel less lost i do recommend to start with book 1 Unthinkable as this universe is really rich and every element can be important later so better not to miss anything.
Now that this precaution is done i must say that i was more than happily surprised... book 1 was fantastic and i loved it, this one is as good or even better it's captivating and intriguing... it's the kind of book you must read in one sitting simply because you can't put it done. the idea is original and it's a strange but excellent mix between paranormal romance and sciences fiction with that second genre a bit more present in this instalment. Really it's a series that once started you want to finish but that will require some patience as it's not written yet.
Keeping the quality in a series when book 1 was great is not easy but Nina Croft sure manages it at the perfection. We do get enough recaps to fall back into the new instalment without trouble and at the same time we just have enough to keep us on the edge of our seat ready to jump on any new info to try to learn more about all the mysteries involved.
I really loved Ethan, despite being conclave he is deep down a good guy and his loyalty to his friend makes him even more adorable... he is perfect for Sadie, they have so much in common that it can be funny because despite this deep connection they still tiptoe around each other for a long moment....i loved that because both character with their past need time to accept what is happening and fully trust the other it's perfectly natural.
The link between Sadie and the dog Max is absolutely cute too and seen we see the others member of the tribe i hope that we will see him again in the rest of the series as well.
Sadie is a bit of a wild element in the tribe, she is so full of anger that she has difficulties to follow orders ( not as much as Kaithlin but still) and that leads her into danger a bit too often fortunately Jake knows her well and thus is ready to protect her when it's needed while giving her as much as freedom as it's possible - yes really Jake is the perfect Alpha- When Sadie sees a man in her dreams at first she doesn't over think it and simply enjoy those dreams but when she sees him in real, she has to investigate...while keeping the real reason secret.
I really loved the story it was perfectly balanced between the investigation, action, romance, new elements...secondary characters are so funny and interesting. i really loved the poor Fergus so loyal and so protective of Ethan but also liking Sadie without showing it. We do learn a lot in this book but Kane mission is still a mystery and we end up with more question than answers but fortunately the good guys are winning some battle.... now will Kane manage to get his soul mate^^ we will see in the future but i already imagine his pain as his hands will be full .. that with his mind a little narrow when it comes to his mission it could be funny to watch.
So this really a series to discover ( but in order) and i recommend it without hesitation while i can't wait for book 3.
