This is the first book that I have read by Tina Folsom. I liked her idea of the cloak warriors and I really enjoyed reading about their world. I liked Aiden’s character and the other cloak warriors that were introduced in this book. I am now looking forward to Hamish’s story to see who will be the one to help him overcome a past betrayal from the he loved..
Aiden was a great warrior that always followed the rules of the council and his own, so he can better protect the humans he is assigned to. I like his relationships he had with the other cloak warriors, and how he was able to have light banter with them and was also show respect to them.
I must admit that I was somewhat disappointed with Leila’s character in the beginning. For a doctor who is really smart, she didn’t really make smart decisions and I didn’t start liking the choices she made until more towards the end. But as the story progressed and Leila and Aiden’s relationship grew deeper did her character become stronger and made better decisions.
I didn’t really care how crude something’s were said and some of the sexual content was just a tad too much for my taste. But I thought the story was really interesting to read and the idea was something I never read before and makes for an interesting series to read.
