What’s better than a gorgeous, time traveling supercop? Two of them.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Wow. Just wow. This book was really quite interesting. I love how Atwood seamlessly combined many genres of literature into a single novella. Although listed as an erotic novel (which it definitely is), it also has a very strong paranormal suspense component to it.

This novella was very well written. Atwood lays out her story clearly, progressing from one point to the next. And yes, it does have a definite storyline. The suspense that she builds throughout is very compelling. The descriptions and narrative that she employs were also very compelling. Many of the scenes in this novella were vividly realistic.

The characters in this novel were all very unique. Atwood developed them all extremely well considering the shortened page count of a novella, while still leaving more to be discovered in a sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed finding out the family histories of the main characters. Knowing where they came from helped explain who they were today. I also appreciated that the characters were not simply developed emotionally and personality wise, but also physically. You can clearly picture what each and every one of the main characters looks, sounds, and feels like.

This was a very intriguing, very compelling read. I couldn’t put it down at all. I’d love to read many more adventures with these characters.
