Jenna Thanatos thought she was ordinary; just your everyday girl with a healthy sexual appetite and a few kinks to boot. After moving to Maine to be closer to her boyfriend, Kyle, Jenna was starting a new chapter in her life. Little did she know, this chapter had more to offer than she ever thought possible. One night of fun exhibitionism turns Jenna’s world upside down and shoves her face first into a world she never knew existed. Harbinger. Female Harbinger. The thing of legends, a myth foretold by ancient seers, but it couldn’t be true. She was just her. Besides, things like that didn’t exist. After being kidnapped, shot at, chased, and sprouting wings, she wasn’t so sure anymore. Timoteus, an ancient Harbinger, has been searching for Jenna for years after finding out that she truly did exist, keeping a long-term promise to an old friend to watch over his family line. His duties were to protect her, train her, and make the foretold prophecy come to fruition. After saving Jenna, they find themselves still being hunted, landing Tim right in the middle of an operation he never dreamed could exist. Benneit Colebrook took over his father’s business after his death last year. When the mention of a female Harbinger was whispered in his ear, he knew he had to have the rare and precious being to add to his collection. And, he would do anything to get her. Jenna now finds herself in an underground compound with two sexy as hell men, hiding away from the people hell-bent on taking her. Why? She has no clue. Yesterday she was normal, today she’s not only in a fight for her life, but also the lives of all beings that have been disappearing for centuries. Will Jenna be able to accept who she is and face this new world head-on, or will everything come crumbling down before she has a fighting chance?
Two Boundless Stars
I received a copy of Twice Lost via Net Galley. When I read the blurb for this story I was all over it. However I just had trouble connecting with the story and especially Jenna. I think it was opening scene with her and her boyfriend just kinda turned me off to the book. I thought it was rather crude a degrading. The story as a whole is very intriguing and I found myself not able to guess what was going to happen next. It jumps scenes (storylines) similar to what J.R. Ward does. This was done fine, again it was more that I didn't connect. I also found the loves scenes to be meh. So it was OK could have been better. I don't think I will be reading book two.
