Having not read the Nightshade young adult novels by this author, I had to get quickly caught up with the paranormal world of Captive. There’s lots going on in the beginning of the story and the author does a good job filling you in on some of the paranormal elements and characters, like the Keepers and Searchers.
I loved the setting which the author conveyed perfectly to set up the danger and intrigue in this story. It reminded me of some of the older gothic novels I’d read many years ago. Tristan is a sexy hero, who comes across as a nice guy even when he discovers the heroine, and intruder, Sarah, naked on his bed.
There’s nothing quite like a romance between two sworn enemies and that’s exactly what you get with Captive. The paranormal world set up by the author is also fascinating with its wolves and witches.
It’s a page turner and I continued on just to see what happened between the two main characters. I’m not sure if there will be more books for adults in the Nightshade series, but it will be fun to check back to see where the author goes from here.
