Starborn by Samantha Jane
🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Red!
This was a crazy ride with a lot of twists and turns! Willow and her twin were separated at birth and she’s lived her whole life searching for her. A kill and retrieve order sets Lucas up to meet Willow. After taking her to The Order it’s plain to see that they aren’t everything they say. Throughout the book I didn’t trust The Order, and I still don’t. Luckily Willow was the same. She questioned The Order and her new mentor, whom she has a connection with, Lucas. Lucas lives and breathes The Order but notices things Willow points out and starts having doubts.
The pacing was a bit of a problem for me. Most places it was super slow, and others it was way too fast. It interrupted the flow of the book a bit. Overall I was able to get into the story after skipping some parts that were just not necessary to the story. Willow was a tough character and I liked her immensely. Lucas was a bit of a drag at first but I ended up falling in love with him. Both had tragedies in their past that lent to some strong personalities. Even through the pacing problems I enjoyed this book and will be looking forward to Eve’s book next.

oddball patient group land on his hit list.
