I received a free digital copy of this novel through Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve read a lot of paranormal romance. It is probably one of my favorite genres, and I’m so happy I gave Imprisoned Heir a try. This book was fast paced and steamy. It is exactly what I’m looking for from a book of this genre.
This story is told from the perspectives of Nyx and Eos, who share a body. It was nice to see each character’s point of view. We don’t get to see as much of Eos, but she still plays a very important role. They are not the same and it is important to make that distinction. Each character has their own wants, agenda, and lover. This creates a lot of tension between the two and other characters.
There are a lot of elements you may recognize for other books in this genre, but I thought the author did a nice job of crafting a new story with intriguing plot. The pacing was spot on. I never felt the writing slowed down and there was a good mix of action and romance. I’ve also become interested in the side characters and want to know more about them and how they will fit in as the story continues.
The love interests have an enemy-to-lovers type of story. There is definitely an instant connection, but events get in the way, and they need to work through some things. I liked the set up for Nyx and her mate. They slowly learned to trust each other and will need that going in to the second book. I thought they had amazing chemistry and really enjoyed the steamy scenes.
I really enjoyed this novel. It kept my interest cover-to-cover and now I can’t wait to read the next installment.
