JD Nelson’s novel is a romantic ride through a mystical realm where love triangles, undisclosed destinies, and the Fates rule the road as enchanted princes, evil doppelgangers, and a decades-long war take the heroine on detours that change her forever.
Night Aberrations opens at the loss of Emelie’s parents, which leaves her sick with an ailment she cannot shake. When Soren, a man she has always thought of as an adopted uncle, arrives to offer her aid, Emelie finds blessed relief, along with some shocking revelations that will take everything she knew of her life and toss it in the air like a deck of cards.
Betrothed to marry a prince, Emelie begins her adventure by travelling to the ancestral home of her parents, where she is introduced to the truth about her heritage and her betrothed. Destined to marry a prince she knows only through his dark reputation, Emelie relies on her protector, Soren, and his warriors, to help her meet her obligation and end a war, all while learning to embrace her inherited talents and understand them. Along the way, Emelie finds herself torn between the intense pull she feels for her fated mate, and her heart’s desire for another.
Night Aberrations is a romantic tale, set in a complex world, populated with creatures based on Norse mythology. The story takes you on an exciting and romantic journey, full of interesting and entertaining characters. JD Nelson’s writing style is emotional and romantic; and it leaves you cheering for the heroes while casting reproachful glares at the villains. As the first book in the series, it ends with some very nicely tied up story line threads, while still leaving plenty of cliffhangers to carry you into the next book.
I am not normally a strong ‘romance’ genre reader as a rule, but I found I very much enjoyed this paranormal romance and all of it’s many characters. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, so I can follow Emelie and her cohorts along to the next stop in her journey.
