BITTERROOT Part 1
About the book:
Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.
Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father--and the family that's been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will. Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not she Charlie had in mind.
When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she's befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that's been promised the winner.
Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who "wins" Owen.
Only problem: Charlie's already fallen for him.
Bitterroot is a Young Adult Paranormal with a dose of sibling rivalry... Who will you root for?
Rating: 3.8 of 5 stars
NO!! Where's the rest?! I cannot believe it ended that way! I need the next book NOW. Like seriously do authors get some sort of evil enjoyment from seeing us suffer waiting for the release of the next book?! I just... I can't... what am I supposed to do now?
I have not read a book quite like Bitterroot. I mean sure the whole werewolf-vampire deal is overrated on my part but the authors gave the book a whole other spin that is sure to make it stand out. Throw in a complicated sibling rivalry, a well-built world and complex characters and you've got the making of a great series. And that is exactly what Bitterroot is.
I love Charlie and Regan. They're both so different and yet they carry themselves with the same fire and determination that I admire. I have sisters of my own so I could just imagine how terrifying and hard it must be to be in their shoes.
I have read almost everything by Heather Hildenbrand but I have yet to read anything by SM Reine so I didn't know exactly what to expect from this collaboration. But I should have known it's gonna turn out great.
I LOVE, LOVE Bitterroot. It was too short for my taste yes but just knowing that there's gonna be more books after this more than makes up for it. I am highly intrigued by Owen. And Carter kind of stole a bit of my heart already.
I cannot wait to see where the authors would take us. Hopefully there will be more action, twists, Regan-and-Charlie moments and romance. Give me Part II now!
I received an e-arc to read and review.
