#BookReview #PNR #Novella // Berserker by Kitty Thomas

by Kitty Thomas

This is a fun and very steamy read that I readily devoured in one sitting. It’s novella length but still managed to pack in plenty of story.

I adored Chloe, she was ever the pragmatist with reactions that felt totally believable. Cade the man would normally have been too sweet for my tastes, but he was the perfect balance to Cade the Berserker. The diametric contrast of those two extremes of personality provided a wonderful foil against which the emotional turbulence of the story shone. It isn’t easy to convey a believable depth of feeling in a shorter read, but the author did an amazing job of it here.

The story held my attention from start to finish and overall I really enjoyed it. The ending felt rushed though. The conflict barely started, and definitely not examined in any depth, was over in the blink of an eye and I didn’t find myself convinced by Chloe’s feelings. However it did lead to a very satisfying conclusion to the story.

The world building, whilst not complex, was sufficient to both add depth to the story and to leave the reader able to understand the setting.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Fantasy Fairy Tales


I have a special power: the ability to calm a berserker, but I’ve been warned never to use it. My mother said: “If you see a berserker in a rage… not your monkeys, not your circus. Get the hell away. They’re too dangerous, and you’ll lose your freedom.”

But the thing is… we’re flying 30,000 feet in the air in a speeding aluminum cage, and there’s a berserker raging out in the aisle beside me. Security won’t be able to hold him. They won’t be strong enough. They have no idea what they’re dealing with. And if he gets a taste of blood, he’s going to rampage through the entire plane leaving a path of death and destruction, including me.

I’ve never used my power before. I’m afraid it won’t work and he’ll turn on me, but I know all too well what these beasts are capable of. There’s nowhere to go, and he’s just getting started. I have one option: Calm him, and hope I can escape when the plane lands.

This is a standalone. No cliffhangers. HEA Guaranteed.
