On the Author's Website:
William is a dragon shifter who, despite having lived for over two thousand years, has never found a true love. When he meets Evyn, a quirky musician/journalist who wants to be a real photographer, he immediately finds him irresistible.
But Evyn's a little supernatural too, and an evil brotherhood and a band of soul reavers are after him to destroy his pure soul.
Can William protect his love from evil?
I received this book as an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
William is on the run from his own demons, but when he finds Evyn, he realizes that there's something even worse. Still, he can't leave Evyn behind, which might end badly for them both.
I never want to call a book bad, because for an author just writing a complete book is an accomplishment to be lauded, but this book was almost completely unreadable. The main issue was the utter lack of description. The entire book was filled with telling rather than showing, ie. saying William was scared rather than providing the details needed via emotions or physical responses. He's literally chained to a wall by a dragon that will abuse him, and William has zero reaction except for thinking he ought to try to escape at some point.
The lack of description continued the rest of the book. There was absolutely no world building, so the reader is forced to figure out what the heck William means by the meandering and random statement about dragons having taken him in. There's nothing provided as the setting as well, so I couldn't tell you where he is or why, and why any of that is important to William is left out too.
This book was entirely comprised of telling rather than showing, completely lacked needed descriptions in every aspect of the story, and was therefore almost completely unreadable. I do not recommend it at all.
