    One thought on “Undaunted”

    1. 4 Stars“A warrior’s broken soul. A vampire’s kind heart.”Doesn’t that sound intriguing? I’m really glad I finally pulled the trigger and cracked this one open. The blurb is short and sweet but the story is so much more. Before I continue, please be aware: “Content warnings: Contains slavery, violence, body control, bottom shaming, misogyny, and rape mentioned in backstory.” This was a gruesome story and along with the listed warnings, there was necromancy which adds a whole othe [...]

    2. Nice world building in this paranormal romanceI've not read this author before but had this book recommended by another author who's work I love and I was pleasantly surprised.There is some excellent world building and an interesting alternative to the traditional werewolf and vampire mythologies which worked well.The romance took a while to get going but it worked very well as an enemy to lovers story which grew from tentative friendship into respect and then into love.

    3. DNF 58%Bored out of my mind. The romance felt forced and Harlequinesque. The world building was inadequate. The story just didn't feel organic, more paint by the numbers. Moving on.

    4. Enjoyable3.5 starsI enjoyed the author's take on vampires and werewolves. I also enjoyed that the guys got to know each other first before getting involved.

    5. This was one of those books in which everyone is just so darned lovely you can't stand it. People make instant connections, earn trust in no time, love blooms easily, and EVERYONE lives happily ever after together. The writing was ok, though the dialogue didn't feel particularly natural, at times. But the pacing felt off and I didn't believe the relationships for a moment.

    6. ExceptionalAction, romance, intrigue and passion. All the necessary ingredients for an excellent enemies to lovers adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    7. A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 starsUndaunted is a fun, quick, light read with hints at a greater world beyond what the story gives us. The characters are a bit simple and undeveloped, and the group of adventurers is a bit generic, but there are some unique and interesting ideas in this book — especially where vampires and werewolves are concerned — that make it stand out from the (forgive the pun) pack.Vampires, in this world, have very little no resemblance to Stoker’s creation. While they a [...]

    8. MC Roshan has past relationships with women, and laments that he is unable to continue to do so given his status as a vampire.

    9. Sometimes we are wrong when we believe that the Gods are punishing us. Especially when you escape one fate to be placed in what one might view as the same fate all over again but with a different person. The thing is fate has a way of placing us exactly where we need to be and with exactly who we need to be with. This is what happened to Kelas.Kelas' life has been nothing but a living nightmare since he was forced into becoming a Hound as it is called in this book. A hound is basically a werewol [...]

    11. 5 stars for Devin HarnoisThis wonderful book is the story of Roshan and Kelas, both different creatures created against their will. Rodhan is a vampire who was created and abandoned by his maker at birth. Meals is a werewolf, or Hound, who was created when his land was conquered by vampires and everyone he knew was killed. He was enslaved by the vampires and forced to serve them.He escapes and is saved by Rodhan binding their futures together. They have to navigate misunderstandings and learned [...]

    12. Fascinating FantasyThis was so very different in that it was fantasy, almost sci-fi, with my werewolves aka Hounds and Vampires. Adding in the MM genre and instant buy for me. It touched on a lot of different subjects and had a great secondary cast that I would enjoy learning more about. Roshan was a wonderful and touching character and I felt for him and support of Kelas. I liked Kelas' journey of self discovery and faith. It was overall a true love story and I would definitely recommend it.

    13. AdventurousThis was my first book by the author and I must say I enjoyed it. This was an exciting story about vampires, hounds/wolves, other paranormal creatures and magic. The story is centered around Kelas who is captured turned into a blood bonded hound after witnessing the death and destruction of his family and village. He tries to escape and his rescued by Roshan and his friends. This story is filled with action, adventure, violence, secret plots and laughter.

    14. 4.5 ⭐️ Enjoyed the story but felt a little disconnected with Roshan. The premise of the story was very good. Kelas was a tragic character.

    15. Stupid Good!Great book, it has it all! There is love, adventure, friends, family and a small amount of sex. It is a must read!

    16. Bee emotional and moving. What a great love story with wonder depth in the characters! Can’t wait to read more by this author.

    17. Fabulous!!This is the first book I've read by this author. I love finding new talented authors and I'm very impressed with this oneis book was amazingI loved the world building and the character development The plot was spot on and I felt everything Keles was feeling I hope to read more from this wonderful cast of characters!! Can anyone yell SERIES!!!!

    18. So good!Loved this book. The world build was amazing, the characters had depth and personality, the plot was fantastic. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

    19. Not for me this one - I think the theme just didn't catch me. It was well written and clearly had a good story line, but there just wasn't enough to get me engaged with the two MCs story.
