Review- Kindred

Title: Kindred
(Darkwoods Trilogy #2)
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Summary:
Isaac Mayfair is hiding a dark secret. And just when Adria Dawson thinks the worst of her life among the werewolf world is over, she learns the secret that can rip her and Isaac's love apart. Adria must come to terms with what the truth means for her. What it means for her life and how much time she has left to live it. She must choose between two different fates, neither of which can offer life as a certainty.

As if Isaac's betrayal isn't enough, Adria learns that there are things out there older and more powerful than werewolves could ever be. An archaic entity known only to few as the Praverian, unlike anything Adria has ever known or heard of.

As Adria struggles with her own fateful dilemmas, she must also try to find out why the Praverian is so interested in her and do everything in her power to stay out of its way.

Review:
Let me start by saying I really like this cover! Way better than the cover of book #1. (though the girl looks a lot like Nina Dobrev from the Vampire Diaries TV show)
This book starts 3 months after The Mayfair Moon (see my review HERE) stops.
Adria and Isaac are still together, and trying to make their way through this supernatural life. In Mayfair Moon- Adria was attacked and kidnapped by the Big Bad-Viktor Vargas, and is living with a secret that he is still alive. She doesn’t want to damage Isaac, or cause him pain in knowing that his father doesn’t love him enough to keep him safe… so she keeps it to herself. But was that all that happened when he kidnapped her? Or did something more happen?
As things start changing, she starts getting nauseous and blacking out, and having these weird anxiety-like attacks, (don’t worry shes not pregnant…lol) She wonders if Viktor did more. She fears that he blood bonded her to himself.
On the other side- Isaac has his own secrets hidden.
And then something even stranger happens. Adria starts seeing a girl, Genna, that no one else can see. Who is she? What does this mean?
I have to say this book was just as good as the first (but I was expecting it this time). There was constant action, and a couple of twists you don’t expect.
I really like the way Adria has grown from the beginning of Book 1 to the end of this book. She is stronger, more confident and sure of herself. I love who Adria is.
The relationship between Adria and Isaac really grows, and its not perfect, like so many fake relationships in novels these days. It is flawed, but they grow together for it. They go through tough things and are there for each other for it. BUT- FYI- there is some sexual content in this novel, so it is recommended for readers 18+. It is not graphic, but it is present.
You finally figure out what it means when they say these books are part of the Pravarian Chronicles... but I wont spoil anything for you!
There wasn’t really a bad guy in this novel… I mean, at the end you know there is a bad guy looking in the background that will be discovered in the third and final novel, but there wasn’t any bad guy in this one. Trajan and Viktor are no-shows in this…
Overall, I really enjoyed this one and am impatiently awaiting the final installment!

RATING: 4 Stars
