I found this book giving off Throne of Glass vibes along with some Star Wars bits. It starts off with Meda who is a non-royal born into a prophecy that deems her saving the galaxy. She has a bodyguard who is a mercenary but she doesn’t think she needs one and is perfectly fine being able to do what she wants. Meda is an empath and semi-frequent telepath who gets overwhelmed sometimes with all the people around her and escapes quite a bit that her bodyguard, Perseus gets angry with her. Not wanting to spoil but Meda ends up falling for Perseus.
I loved the plot of the story but the description of Perseus was a bit too much, I’m not a fan of big muscled guys even tho he did sound rugged and handsome. I also found it a bit deeming that he kept calling her “little girl” even though it changes a bit in the end after they are both in love.
In other words, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sci-fi, humor, fantasy and a bit of action. I feel this book provided a lot of those things along with romance of course but not too much it was overbearing.
The Gauntlet: The Soppranaturale Series is a short paranormal story of characters who are vampire, shape-shifters, witches and fae. The two main characters are the last two fae and this tells of them finding each other in a supernatural safe haven which is a hotel where they all live and work.
I enjoyed this book. I found it intriguing from the start. I wish there was more detail of how the hotel got started but I’m sure it will be in the other series, hopefully. I will keep reading the rest of the series to find out!
