Punished and shamed, the divine mother of nature, the goddess Net, was stripped of her powers and made mortal. Were it not for the shifter god, Fenrir, she wouldn’t have a home or protection, and with evil rising in all the realms, she is more than vulnerable, she’s a target.

My Review

This was a story I enjoyed quite a lot, even if my rating is below my initial expectations. Lilli Carlisle delivers a love story in the realm of gods, with hatred, devised loyalties and politics. Not only the romance, but as well the plot provide entertainment and keeps you on the edge.

The goddess Net, stripped of her powers, is placed under the protection of a shifter god – Fenrir. They form a friendship based on trust, even if he does not show her his human form. Time spent together, as well as enemies bring them together and make them reveal their true feelings.

I liked the story, I liked their search for the judge and I liked seeing the division of the gods. What was not so close to my heart was the instalove we have between our main characters. It does not take too much for them to say they love each other and I would have liked to see them spend more time together. Some of the relationships between the main characters and the secondary characters did not seem very convincing.

All in all, I am curious to see how the series will evolve and understand some of the other characters’ stories. I hope you’ll give this book a try and let me know your thoughts 🙂

Until next time, Happy Reading!
