#BookReview : Surrender (Mimics of Rune #2)

Paranormal Romance, Shape-shifter

Surrender by Aimee LaineFace the past or look to the future? Both will hurt. One could kill her.

All her life, Lily Crane has suppressed her childhood memories, masking the signs of abuse with a variety of looks. From brunette to blonde, tall to short — as a Mimic, changing shape is her gift. Her right. Her achilles heel.

It’s Lily’s latest likeness, chosen simply by accident, which threatens to repeat a history she’s desperate to forget. Worse, she must do so without the one man who takes all her pain away: Cael Aldridge.

Cael has no intention of leaving Lily on her own. He never has. Now, with the woman he loves in the hands of a predator who wants Lily for her genetics, Cael will do everything he can to bring her home.


He can only pray he isn’t too late.

My Review:

I gave Little White Lies (Mimics of Rune #1) 5 stars, but this one I must admit captured me more. If 5.5 stars were available, that's what Surrender would receive. Perhaps I ought to change my star rating system.


Lily's story is emotionally moving. She's forced to face her haunting past and finds unexpected, but welcomed surprises along the way.

Yummies:  Cael. Faithful, rock solid changeling who would do anything for Lily. I could go on & on, but what woman wouldn't want a man as focused on her as he is on Lily? She's one lucky woman.

Lily herself is a troubled chracter whose story reaches out to entangle the reader in her woes. She gained my empathy & I couldn't wait for her story to come a-right. I didn't want it to end - I just wanted that HEA she definitely deserved!

Yuckies:  Ray *SPOILER ALERT* the villain came across as a slimy, sneaky, shiver inducing chunk of puke. However, he too was portrayed in such a way that I can't even call his character yucky. Just the changeling himself.

Recommend:  If you enjoyed LWL, you'll love this 2nd installment. If you haven't read LWL, do so!


Be sure to come back on Wednesday when Ms. Laine will be swinging by to answer some questions!!!
