Book Review: 'Her Ancient Hybrid' by Marisa Chenery


Two thousand years is a long time to have to wait to meet your mate. It’s even longer when you’ve been buried alive.

I love new to me authors, getting a feel for their talent and how they weave a story. Ms. Chenery did a good job. I enjoyed the hybrid true immortal story line.

A very short read, this is a good one for readers who want intensity but don’t have much time to devote to long drawn out novels. I was a bit sad when this one ended but only because I kept imagining the interaction between the characters after the last page. I adored Waverly even as things progressed too fast for her; she still hung in there and was a champ. As for Brolach, I was fanning myself over him – protector, lover and a Vampire/Wolf that had been sleep for two thousand years. It made me laugh when I pictured his face as seeing a car for the first time.

I don’t know what the author has planned for future books in this series but Waverly’s brother needs his own story – what a character he is, so full of himself but loyal to his sister. Cameron the lone wolf; yep, he needs his own story.

If I could change something it would be the length, it truly needed to be a bit longer to give the characters more time to develop. Brolach is all alpha male but he could have been more likable if I could have had more time to get to know him, understand him.

Everything else meshed well. I’d give her a B+ on the sexy scenes and the premise was a win. I enjoyed the dialogue and how smoothly the pace flowed. I will be looking forward to reading more of Ms. Chenery’s work. I’d recommend this to any shifter lover. Enjoy.
