Review: To Eternity
To Eternity by Daisy Banks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I admit that I did not read the first book of this series (and really didn't realize there was one). This story is a direct followup to the actions from the first, so I think skipping book 1 was not a good idea. Having some experience with these characters would have probably helped to understand a bit more of the underlying motivations and histories.
Magnus is an old werewolf who was set in his ways until Sian walked into his life. She has the ability to share dreams with him, so they can really spend all their time together if they truly wanted to. In the previous book, they met through Sian's hunt for a perfect filming location. Her obsessive and creepy boss ended up caught in the crossfire of Magnus's protective tendencies and ended up torn apart (literally). Being a werewolf, he obviously created a bit of a monster from an already horrible person. We spend the book flipping back and forth between characters POV (including the monster, be warned, and he has some pretty awful thoughts). Sian spends the majority of the book trying to convince Magnus that she can handle being his mate. Magnus spends the majority of the book trying to balance his own guilt with his love of Sian.
There is a mix of steamy scenes, action, and a lot of romantic drama. It reads a lot like a historical romance in language and setting (it's pretty much in a castle), but is set in current day. If you're looking for a paranormal romance that has some historical elements, this series might be a really great blend for you.
