Labeled an Arcane, Rachel Ryan wonders if she’s human anymore. After she’s thrown headlong into the world of The Preternatural Rachel learns Shapeshifters, Faeries, and Vampires aren’t legends. They’ve been living hidden in plain sight among humans. In her quest to save a child she will set off a cataclysmic chain of events. Her actions will disrupt the carefully balanced political chess board, casting once powerful pieces to the floor. A werewolf protector, a lost princess, a mad vampire, and an exiled Fae named Winter will rise up to challenge the status quo. A war that has been brewing in the shadows for centuries is ready to explode. Rachel must choose where her allegiance lies, tipping the scales, but who is an enemy and who is a friend?


This book was a fantastic read.  It could be a little confusing the first couple of chapters depending on you, it wasn’t for me.  This book has romance, violence, alpha, all kinds of preternatural creatures, and more.  Rachel wakes and some learns she is about to be thrown into a world she knows nothing about.  The Richland Institute has done something to her and they want her to be the weapon in their first against the supernatural world.  She meets several other supernaturals along the way.  A little girl Livia, a wolf named Bastian, and his sister Madalaina just to name a few.  The supernatural world is about to be turned upside down with the presence of Rachel and Livia.  This book had me laughing out loud at times; it has some sarcasm in it.  I love supernatural books of any kind so this book was right up my alley.  I was immediately sucked into the book and read all in one sitting in just a few hours.  I will definitely book on look for other book in this series.  A lot happens in this book and it is a bit fast paced.  I love all the characters and can’t wait to read more about them in the future.  Rachel and Bastian are hot together and as with any mated shifter couple he is willing to do whatever it takes to protect her.  I liked that there were different types of shifters not just wolves.  Then you throw vampires, witches, and the fae and the book is just that much better.  It is the first book by Bridget Blackwood that I have read and look forward to reading other books by her in the future. I will be recommending this book to other for sure.
