I feel so betrayed. I thought this would be a novella for a series. As it turned out, it’s a short story that was previously published in an anthology.
Karina Tucker was on the road taking a little detour from the field trip route with the kids when monsters came for her. She awoke in a new world with no means of going home. The little ray of sunshine, which is having her daughter safe, was being threatened to be ripped away for her if she didn’t uphold her end of the bargain. She would be a donor and endure the pain as her means of earning her keep. But little did they know that slave they rescued will be their salvation.
I was so immersed in this new world Ilona Andrews has created. I was so very excited to see what will happen next now that our heroine, Karina Tucker, has unleashed her true self to the world. I was actually thinking that the first book would be the story of her daughter. Her mostly human daughter in the midst of sub-species with different abilities. How will she survive and be the best and all that. *sigh* Unfortunately, it is not the case. Still, I can’t help hoping and dreaming for the this new story to unfold.
Here’s to hoping for a new series!
