Review - Chasing Freedom by Nicola S. Dorrington

About the Book 

Chase Finn is being hunted, and if he ever stops running he’s going to end up dead.

It doesn’t matter that he’s only seventeen. It doesn’t matter that just a few weeks ago he was a normal teenager. All that matters is that he is a threat, and the Agents tracking him will stop at nothing to see him neutralized.

With the line between friends and enemies blurring, Chase discovers he is just a pawn in the middle of a war that’s lasted for centuries, but he isn’t going to let himself be used any longer.

Soon both sides of the war are going to learn that the most important thing about Chase Finn isn’t that he’s a werewolf, it’s that he’ll sacrifice everything, even his own freedom, for the people he loves.

My Review

I'm not going to lie, this book took a little while for me to get into, but when I did, I found it really enjoyable. This is a book that I would usually pick up from the bookstore, as it is filled with werewolves, shifters and vampires. This automatically assures me that this book is going to be full of some butt kicking scenes. How can you have so many supernaturals together and not get some epic battle scenes?

This story really began to draw me in, which is not a surprise given all of the mystery that you are immediately given. Who is after Chase? And why do they want him? You are left wondering and waiting. I think the initial questions that are asked when the story first begins are what really drew me in and made me just want to keep flipping those pages.

Not only was the plot great and gripping, but I really enjoyed the characters. Chase, who I kind of found to be a little annoying at first, really grew on me and his relationship with a certain shifter was so fun to read about. Though none can really match Maladict for me. He was just the greatest for me, what with his snarky and sarcastic attitude. He's a vampire after my own heart, really. I don't know that the story would have been the same without him.

If I were going to rate this story, I'd give it a four. The plot took a little time to pick up, but when it did, it was great. And I found that I really enjoyed the writing style too, which is almost as important as the plot in my opinion.

Overall, a very good read and one that I would highly suggest to anyone looking for a good supernatural read.
