[ARC Review] - Unleashed

Title: Unleashed
Author: Sara Humphreys
Series: The Amoveo Legend #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2011

I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.

Summary: What if you suddenly discovered your own powers were beyond anything you'd ever imagined...

Samantha Logan's childhood home had always been a haven, but everything changed while she was away. She has a gorgeous new neighbor, Malcolm, who introduces her to the amazing world of the dream-walking, shapeshifting Amoveo clans...but what leaves her reeling with disbelief is when he tells her she's one of them...

And shock turns to terror as Samantha falls prey to the deadly enemy determined to destroy the Amoveo, and the only chance she has to come into her true powers is to trust in Malcolm to show her the way...

Thoughts: Samantha has had enough of New York. Enough of not selling her art and enough of not finding Mr. Right, so she moves back home. She has definitely noticed some changes. Like her sexy neighbor Malcolm.

Malcolm tells her of the shape-shifting Amoveo clans and it seems unbelievable to her. That they really exists and she is one of them. An Amoveo hasn't been attacked or killed since Sam's parents. But with her return she's in much danger. The enemy has their sights set on both her and Malcolm.

I'm a sucker for true mate stories and this one sucked me right in. Unleashed is a story of dreams and shape-shifters. Both Samantha and Malcolm were great characters to read about. Their romance was sweet and passionate. An enthralling story. One of the things I enjoyed was that the author didn't just stick with one animal. The Amoveo Clans shape-shifters are all different kinds of animals. Sure keeps things interesting. Ms. Humpreys has created a fantastic world, a unique one too. Her world will leave you wanting more.

Score: 4 Stars

  1. Thanks for this review of Unleashed. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it :)

  2. You had me at shapeshifter. I'm a sucker for shapeshifter stories, and hearing that Sara chose a bunch of animals to highlight, rather than just the overused cat, wolf, and bear, makes me excited to pick this one up.

    Thanks for the rec!
