REVIEW: First of Spring by Kelsey Jordan


Forged from a childhood filled with bloodshed and death, Trent had been raised with a blade in his hands. He lives the life of a warrior and carves through his enemies as if seeking redemption for his mother’s ultimate sacrifice. As the acting Mikko of the Order of Rockys, Trent leads the most dominant Lycans in the world. For that reason alone, he has no use or understanding for those who wallow in their vulnerabilities, rather than exercise their power over their own destiny.

Aryana doesn’t dream of everlasting love. Her life is ruled by a song that echoes from the halls of Oblivia, a fate that came to her under the thundering hooves of the Mares of Night. She is going to die, but with no clue as to when or why, Aryana is forced to do everything she can to negate the haunting words of fate,

“Weakness dies and you are weak.”

But the gods are merciless in their meddling in the lives of powerful mortals and the ones they love. How far will Trent have to fall for the weak female who steps in his life and claims his soul?

This book was my least favorite of the series. There were times it felt like it dragged on a bit and the timeline and perspectives jump around a lot making it harder to follow. There were also some loose ends left wide open that bothered me.

While the gods were previously fun and interesting, and the still had their moments this time, there was too big a focus on them. I suppose you could say their novelty wore off.

I liked the couple eventually, but it took me a while with how difficult they both could be. Their story, while compelling and in the end interesting, was disappointing and sad all around.

Bottom Line:

First of Spring takes this series to a different level. Check it out!
