As a species the Imnada seem like a potentially interesting shape-shifter.At the moment I am at a loss to say what exactly they are. Hairy, big and beastlike is the best I can come up with. At the moment the series is a combination of romance meets paranormal with the romance side getting more of a legs up. If the author wants to stay more grounded in the para genre then the shifter/creature/fey storyline needs to be developed a wee bit more. Give those monstrous soul-feeders a chance to shine.This is short prequel to the second novel, which will hopefully be a better indicator of where the author is headed with this idea.I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
