HAPPY BOOK CLUB THURSDAY! Thanks for stopping by this week, where myself and my BFF's/ fellow bloggers are reviewing First to Burn. ABOUT THE BOOK:
A soldier with secrets.
Immortal Viking Wulf Wardsen once battled alongside Beowulf, and now serves in Afghanistan. He's trusted the mortal men on his elite special operations team to protect his secret, until an explosion lands Wulf in a place more dangerous to him than a battlefield: a medevac helicopter.
A doctor with questions.
Army captain Theresa Chiesa follows the rules and expects the same from others, even special forces hotshots like Sergeant Wardsen. She's determined to discover the secret behind his supernaturally fast healing, and she won't allow his sexy smile to distract her.
An enemy with nothing to lose.
Even as Theresa's investigation threatens to expose him, Wulf is stirred by her passion. Dreaming of love and a normal life, he wants nothing more than to build a future with her. But the lost Viking relic needed to reverse his immortality is being hunted by another—an ancient enemy who won't hesitate to hurt Theresa to strike back at Wulf.
This book is a mixed bag- and that's a good thing. I've been kind of digging some of the military themed paranormal romances that are out there and this book makes an impressive(even more so as it's Ms. Richland's debut) addition to the genre.
The fact that Ms. Richland has a military background shows and lends truth, and authenticity to the book's plot and setting. The back story of the Immortals was really good. Equally enjoyable is the (sometimes humorous)relationship between Wulf and his team.
Not only are Wulf and Theresa very well written, strong characters, some of the others are just are good.
Although I thought the story moved a bit slowly times it worked in the instance of Wulf's reveal and in no way lessened my enjoyment of the story.
I look forward to more books in this series.
