Thank you. Siobhan, for my copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Having read all the other books in the series. I was curious to know more about Axton and looked forward to reading this latest story. I was not disappointed 'The heir and the Human' adds another layer and depth to the series.
Poor, poor Axton. First he is brought up with a mother who is cruel and manipulative and shows him no motherly love or affection. In fact it's not an exageration to say Griselda is pure evil; then, the girl Griselda introduces into the household as part of her devious plan for the future, falls for someone else, namely Logan. In this story, however, we are taken into the past where Sadie and Axton love each other intensely, and Sadie can't imagine being with anyone else.
My first impression of Axton as merely being a 'bit character' is changed completely in this book as we see how important he really is in Sadie's life, and I found myself liking him more and more.He is sensitive, intelligent, and the only love he has known in his life is from Sadie, and now even that is about to be taken away from him. It seems so cruel. I don't want to give too much away about this latest story, but I will say that it is full of excitement, tension and a good smattering of romance. Love, friendship and betrayal from an unexpected quarter are all encompassed in this latest book. It's not necessary to read it to enjoy the other books, but it certainly adds another dimension to the story and answers several questions that might have occurred to the reader in the previous episodes. It also gives more background and information on some of the other characters. I really enjoyed 'The Heir and the Human' , a fast but poignant read, and look forward to the next book in the series.
Axton’s existence was a lonely one until his mother brought Sadie into his life. Now, she’s the center of his universe, and he’ll do everything in his power to protect her.
But Griselda’s evil plans cast a dark shadow over their love, threatening the future he so desperately craves. With separation looming, Ax is preparing to sacrifice everything for the girl he loves. It’s a high-stakes gamble, and he needs to stay ahead of the game if he’s to outsmart his conniving mother.
Sadie has been his savior.
Now it’s his turn to save her.
