Review of Kindred by J.A. Redmerski!
Kindred is the second book of the Darkwoods Trilogy, and let me just say that this series is progressing fantastically! To catch those who don't know up to speed, the first book in this series is called "Mayfair Moon" and tells the story of a girl in a not so great situation named Adria Dawson. After something attacks Adria and her sister, all hell pretty much breaks loose that ends up in a relocation to Georgia. It is in Georgia where things get really juicy because she meets Isaac Mayfair, who has a dark secret.
Kindred I really liked, because we got to see some more character development from secondary characters who were introduced in the first book, as well as the progression of Isaac's and Adria's relationship. When I first read the major plot twist in the book, I was on the edge of my seat, pretty much thinking, "noooo Adria and Isaac are perfect, whyyyyy!?" But, I will say without trying to give anything away, the end of Kindred was very fitting for the situations of these characters, and I can hardly wait for the next book, as well as more explanation on the character that holds great attention and interest in these books, Aramei.
Another major point of interest in this book for me was the relationship between Adria and Aramei, and if there will be any other major interactions between the two! Overall, this was a fantastic addition to an awesome series that had me hooked after the first page! Can't wait for Aramei's Ballad and to see what else J.A. Redmerski has in store for us!
Isaac Mayfair is hiding a dark secret. And just when Adria Dawson thinks the worst of her life among the werewolf world is over, she learns the secret that can rip her and Isaac’s love apart. Adria must come to terms with what the truth means for her. What it means for her life and how much time she has left to live it. She must choose between two different fates, neither of which can offer life as a certainty.
As if Isaac’s betrayal isn’t enough, Adria learns that there are things out there older and more powerful than werewolves could ever be. An archaic entity known only to few as the Praverian, unlike anything Adria has ever known or heard of.
As Adria struggles with her own fateful dilemmas, she must also try to find out why the Praverian is so interested in her and do everything in her power to stay out of its way.
