I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Beauty from Tragedy
4 out of 5 Stars
What did I like?
There are some interesting characters and the story line was reasonable. The timeline for Tao and Audrey's relationship was short but intense. Although, I didn't like some of the way the story played out, it is understandable why it did and those events helped to move the story along as well as set the stage for the rest of the series.
What did I not like?
Despite the fact that Tao's "special power" is strength, he is really weak. He let his emotions over rule his judgement, even though he was a pack enforcer. His weakness allowed many to suffer and brought events to a aggressive head - his alpha shouldn't have had to come deal with the issue. Also when he knew he couldn't kill his brother, he should have allowed the alpha to call his brothers in as reinforcements or called them himself.
Would I recommend this book?
I think that this was a good set up for a series. I can't wait to read more about his brothers and the new pack. It is a little more human (with the prejudice about purity of blood) than many werewolf stories.
