Series: The Huntress #1

Cass and her sisters, Nix and Del, were firesouls. What they were had to remain a secret or they’d be thrown in jail because they had the ability to steal other people’s magic if they killed them. They didn’t want to hurt anybody. They just wanted to live their lives in peace. Aiden, the most powerful shifter alive, asked Cass for her help to find an object that could put her life in danger if in the wrong hands, so she couldn’t refuse the job.

I didn’t get attached to the characters. I liked them, but they just didn’t stand out. I wish Cass had more page time with her sisters to really get a feel of how they interacted. Their relationship was mostly explained rather than being shown what it was like. Nix and Del didn’t get enough page to to gauge what their personalities were like. Cass was loyal and tough. She did unnecessarily put herself in danger often. It was understandable that she didn’t want to use her magic, but it wasn’t smart to avoid using it when it could be used to protect her.

Aiden was the potential love interest. He was powerful, rich, good looking, and caring. He was a nice guy. There wasn’t anything to dislike about him, but I didn’t understand why almost everyone him liked him a lot. People were instantly drawn to him although they barely knew him. He just wasn’t charming or witty enough to garner that kind of attention. At least the romance wasn’t instalove.

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
