Synopsis Borrowed from Goodreads:

For all eternity, only one thing shall separate them—until the Blood Law is avenged…

The coming of the Blood Moon will lead two Lycan packs into war, spur two rival brothers into conflict, and spark an act of vengeance so evil that its effects will be felt for generations.

One woman stands at the center of it all…

As undisputed Alpha, Rafael must choose a life mate to preserve the dominance of his Lycan pack. He never suspected, his mate would be a human, the same wounded, girl-woman he seduces from the brink of death. Falon is a dangerous combination of Lycan and Slayer—beings bred to destroy his kind. Even more, she’s a mesmerizing beauty whose sensuality tempts the seasoned warrior to take unnecessary risks. The primal heat between them is irresistible, yet surrendering to it could destroy them both…for a vengeful foe stands ready in the shadows to fulfill what is rightfully his by Blood Law.

Darkfallen's thoughts:

This book definitely takes you on a ride....on a LOT of things actually;)

Falon is a girl on the run. She grew up bouncing from one foster home to the next, until one day she fled. She has been on the run, barely surviving, having to steal her meals ever since. She knows that she is different. Weird things seem to happen when she is around. And then there is the rage....

Everything goes from strange and lonely, to stranger and horrid when Falon walks to Mr. D's deli to steal her dinner. She can feel it in the air. Tension, death, and something dark assails her senses. A battle breaks out between to men, rage starts to take her over.

Wait are they fighting over her? How dose the one guy know her name? Has she met them before?

Just when she thought she was the weird one Rafiel walks into her life. Well more like rides in on his Harley, takes out the bad guy in all his sexy dangerous glory, and kidnaps her...but semantics shmantics *shrugs* Falon doesn't know much accept that there is something some serious issues between Rafe and his twin Lucien. But she will learn very soon that the battle between her feelings for Rafe and the evil tie that binds her to Lucien ultimately means nothing when the Blood Law steps in.

Her fate was decided 14 years ago...she doesn't stand a chance.

So for me this book wasn't bad, but could have been better. There was a little too much history/information at the wrong times.

One minute your in the middle of a action packed fight scene, it's awesome, your on the edge of your seat, white-knuckle gripping the book, and then....Now we are learning about the history behind this fight. The long drawn out detail. Five pages later your brought back to the present to learn someone is fatally injured, and you think to yourself ...

Well DUH! maybe if you were fighting instead of daydreaming about what led you to this fight and made this enemy you would have been better focused. Thus not lying on the floor with a sword through your chest.
That's what this book was like for me...some good parts mixed in with a lot of bad timing. I just felt it could have been the same story just arranged better. Also there is a few parts that, while short lived and can be easily over looked, I felt a little squidgy about. Like Rafe having thoughts about having sex with Falon, while shifting into a wolf...boarder line beastialty maybe? I dunno I mean I guess it's ok because he is a werewolf, NOT a wolf...but still it kinda creeped me.

In the end the story here is good. Falon is awesome and I love her badassness. And Mrs. Tabke knows how to leave you hanging...I will be giving the second book a looksy because I need to know what happens!    

Until next time....
