Hello friends! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
How are you?
Today I have my review of Limitless, by Candace Wondrak.
Wolves? Check. Magically floating books? Check. A bloody mystery years in the making? …uh, check?
All Addie ever wanted was a normal life—to graduate college and get a good job so she can support her fortune-telling, tarot-card-reading mother. Her plans are shot to heck when she finds out her mother has been keeping a very important secret from her.
As in, Addie is a shifter. A wolf shifter. And not only that, but she’s special because female shifters are rare, prized in most packs. Unique because shifters as a whole are a dying race, and it’s up to females like her to further their kind.
Thrown into pack life, Addie knows she’ll be able to walk away from it anytime she wants, which is what her mother did twenty years ago, but after meeting the pack—more specifically the wolves she’s supposed to mate with—things get complicated. Maze, Dylan, and Landon. Three very different shifters, yet each one of them stirs Addie’s inner wolf.
When one of her intended mates goes missing, Addie realizes the pack is caught up in something dark and sinister. Someone or something is hunting the wolves, taking them one by one. Death is not the only thing to fear in Crystal Lake…
Limitless is the first in a magical, action-packed shifter trilogy, where the heroine will not have to choose between love interests. Why choose?
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
The story that makes Limitless as it is, is quite…..entertaining. I legit did not know where the story would go. Where it ent though, I was extremely pleased and happy with.
Addie’s alpha is truly starting to show and I hope that she’s the Alpha female of the pack. I want her to show her grandfather who’s boss. His actions are sexist and totally anger inducing. I myself and totally on Addie’s side whenever her grandfather enters the room that Addie’s in. Her grandfather is so freaking patronizing and really, I just want Addie to be the Alpha female of the pack so she can go tell her grandfather to fuck off. Seriously.
Other than than Limitless is quite the read! There’s no sex in this first book. However there are heated sexual tension moments. Steamy, if you will.
The progress that Addie has made in her character with this first Crystal Lake Pack book was A+. Chef’s kiss. I love reading Alpha-in-the-making stories.
There are some other things that I had jotted down when I had read Limitless, and I have a need to include them in my review. So you’re going to get them without context, lol!
- interesting in the sense that Addie grew up knowing absolutely NOTHING of her heritage. On both sides of her family lineage.
- Her mom didn’t believe her when Addie had stated that it was magic that got Addie kicked out of college.
- Her heritage proves to be stronger than anyone knows.
- A lot of people doubt her.
And a good ‘ol’ prediction: I think that the alpha will want to be her mate (along with the others???)
I honestly couldn’t wait to read the second book in this series.
I gave Limitless, 4 stars.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a great day!
See ya soon.
