The Athol Trilogy by Miranda Stork

5 Stars
 O. M. G. It has been forever since I've picked up a book that I literally could not put down. This book was so captivating, I found myself losing sleep in order to finish it. Conner is such an intriguing person, and his dynamic dual personality was insane! While I knew what was going to happen, it was wonderful to discover how Miranda played everything out. She leaves you in suspense and on the edge of your seat - hoping things will turn out well, and wondering what will happen next. LOVED this book. I had to immediately get Erin, just so I could read more about this couple.

 This book doesn't fail to continue the same suspenseful vein as Conner. It starts off with a bang and doesn't let go. While there's a few editorial mistakes, they don't completely distract the reader from the plot line. You are determined to follow along with Erin and Conner/Filtiarn as they try to discover ways to fix what had been done to them. To discover that both of Conners parents are still alive and what their purpose in the story is - so fun. I just think it was a rather quick discovery/conclusion for that particular part of this tale. I think the author summarized what was going on in her head, and it could definitely use some fleshing out to make it more interesting. That's not to say it was uninteresting, just a tad abrupt. It's a great tale of violence, deception, and love.

Great pseudo ending to this trilogy. I kinda groaned at the end, but do think it led up to an interesting follow-up series. While there were still some editorial mistakes, this was an exciting way to end the trilogy. I kinda wish Miranda would have given the reader some more information on Filtiarn's past, but even without it, the story was great. He was an excellent bad-guy. I hate giving too much info about the story in reviews, and I really want to delve into a few particular scenes, but I think I'll just finish this by saying the battle scene was great. The ending was clean without feeling as if the author was trying to tie up all the lose ends in a nice bow. I would definitely recommend this trilogy to fans of werewolves and paranormal romance.
