Thea Slavin from Bulgaria is about to enter Princeton. Although she has an incredible talent for music, she has an alternative motive for attending. Years earlier her sister Elza had also attended Princeton and was mysteriously killed and her body disappeared. While Thea’s parents fear for her safety they trust their daughter to make good decisions.
While Thea finds herself alone in an atmosphere she is unfamiliar with she meets two brothers, Rhyas and Jake, who both find they are drawn to her. (Picture the way Edward was drawn to Bella in Twilight). While Thea finds she too has an attraction to the brothers, one of them holds the answers to what happened all of those years ago and Thea is walking a very dangerous path.
WILDALONE had many of the elements that I enjoy in a good paranormal read. Thea was a likable protagonist and the Bulgarian background was a nice change. While this is a paranormal title, it took quite a while to get there. In fact for the majority of the book you really don’t know what the paranormal part is. I kept waiting to find out what it was, knowing what it must have to do with… but not sure. There was also a couple of small parts in the book that did not flow right…a character would be with someone and then suddenly wasn’t. I actually went back pages to see if I had missed something.
That said, I did enjoy WILDALONE. There is much to like about the book and the things I mentioned above were not deal breakers. As this is a first in a trilogy, I do believe I would continue to see where this story goes.
