Review of Quicksilver
Source: Received from author to review
Genre: Adult Paranormal
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
From Goodreads: A recurring nightmare holds Serry Miller in its grip and has for most of her life. In spite of her fear of the man who becomes a monster, she's in love with him. Not only does she have nightmares while she sleeps, she's living in one with an abusive, alcoholic husband. When, Serry's drunken husband hit's Quinton Worthington's car, she sees the face of the man from her nightmares on a stretcher entering the hospital. When he looks at her and calls her by her name, she is plummeted into a life that she has only dreamed about. Quinton Worthington has suffered for over a hundred years. That's when his evil father ripped Serenity, the love of Quinton's life, from him. At the same time, he changed Quinton into a monster. When Quinton sees Serry's face in the hospital, he believes that Serenity has come back, and he will do anything to be with her. There's only one thing that stands in their way of having the life they want: Quinton's father.
I enjoyed this book overall. It was not the werewolf book I was expecting to read and that was a nice change. I did feel as though sometimes I was being told the story rather than shown it and the characters often spoke unrealistically. Another annoying flaw in the book was that the story felt over about two thirds of the way through the book and didn't immediately re-grab my attention. The story did pick up again and enjoyed the ending, which was fairly open ended without being a cliffhanger. I enjoyed the story with its nice mix of romance, action, and adventure.
I would not categorize this book as totally clean and would probably rate it for adults only but I didn't feel uncomfortable enough to make me stop reading. Overall, I would rate it 3 out of 5.
