Review: Etched in Honor by Carrie Ann Ryan
New spin-off series with vampires, shifters, and witches oh my! This can be read as a standalone series. There are a few characters in here that tie to other series. This is a story of healing interrupted by a new Big Bad. Audrey is the main character and she is one who suffered great torture and pain over the last few years. Her alpha turned evil and caused almost irreparable damage to her and their entire back. Now on the mend, both Audrey and her remaining young pack members, new hurts and danger unbound.
I thought this story was going to be about building back the fractured Aspen Pack back. It is much more. This series kicks off a new story arc about demons interfering with humans to create havoc and start their end game. There are hints to their endgame, yet nothing definitive. Whilst this is going on, Audrey is soul wounded by a new pack member, Gavin. This turn of events surprisingly ties into the Demons trying to destroy Aspen.
What I liked about this story is that there are several subplots that all tie into a bigger storyline. This interconnectedness makes the story richer for me. It also makes me think the author has bigger plans for this series and I look forward to seeing how it all unfolds.
The characters in this story are all likable. Even if there is a character who behaves in an annoying way, I still found them to be honourable in the end. This paranormal romance is recommended to readers who enjoy lovers-found themes embedded in a multi-book storyline.
