Book Review: Mortal Curse by Tia Didmon


Book Description

A shadow. A shifter. A curse.

When a reaper attack thrusts Dannika into the shadow shifter world and her transition results in her imprisonment, she turns to Raine, the sexy shadow who saved her.

As her attraction to Raine mounts, and dissension in the shadow shifter clan increases, she learns that being the only woman to survive the transition isn’t her only secret. Her new abilities come with a price, and if she doesn’t curb her killer instincts, she will end up as loathsome as the creature who attacked her.

My Review

When a reaper attacks Dannika, her whole world is about to change. Raine should have killed her and put her out of her misery because females who are bitten by reapers usually do not make it through the transition. But Raine took a chance and she did make it through the transition and is now a shadow shifter. But Maddock the alpha doesn't want her there, wants her gone and it causes a lot of trouble for everyone. Raine refuses to kill her and instead starts the trials she'll have to complete in order to become one of the shadow shifters. But that causes it's own problems since the other clans now know about her and want her to join them as well. It's been a long time since they've seen a female shadow shifter and all they can think about is how she'll be a good breeder for their kind, which made me sick. 

While Raine is trying to teach her their ways and make her see that she can never go back to her human life, there's a dangerous man trying to get to her and kidnap her which ramps the action and danger up. But this story ends before we really get to know why Killian is after her or why he thinks she is so special. There were a lot of unanswered questions left open at the end of this book. 

The premise was good and the action was great but this book was very wordy without being descriptive enough for me to be able to really imagine what was going on in their world. Plus some parts got very boring and didn't keep me engaged enough to want to keep reading. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
