Werewolves, facing the threat of extinction, desperately seek their mates to bear young. Aurora, a human far removed from the supernatural world, is nearing her own end after being fatally injured in a car accident. 

Kai, an Alpha werewolf, lurks in the nearby trees watching her bleed out. He chooses to save her the only way he knows how, by changing her. No one is prepared for what happens next. The tides turn in favor of the werewolves. The Matefinder has been found, and she is more powerful than anybody ever imagined. But is she prepared to be the most hunted werewolf in history?

My Opinion

Aurora, a domestic abuse survivor, is in a fatal accident. Kia, the alpha of the local werewolf pack, happens upon the accident within minutes of her dying. He decides to change her. Changed werewolves all have powers and Aurora’s is that of matefinder. Only through a mate bond can werewolves have babies which is why their species is dying, modern technology has made finding your mate difficult. As Aurora has visions of where the unmated wolves mate is she can help the werewolves, due to a balance is she is also the way for vampires to procreate. Drinking her blood will make a female vampire fertile. 

Aurora was annoying. Her easy acceptance of werewolves, witches and vampires oh my was a little unbelievable. Umm… hello…her world just got turned upside down… where is her reaction. Oh right… there is none. She accepts all the changes to her life as if it was no thing but a chicken wing, barely batting an eye. She shows no true emotion, ever except when it came to someone telling her what to do- she automatically did the opposite.

Kia, her mate and the alpha of the pack is well….not enough. He isn’t swoony enough, not alpha enough- he was just lacking. I love the idea of destined mates usually it comes with chemistry. Not so much in Matefinder.

Matefinder has an interesting premise. The characters just lacked a certain finesse and personality to fully engage me as a reader. I read another book that this author co-author, Queen Heir which is why I chose to start this series. Queen Heir was really good, so I am hoping that the second book in this series redeems the first.

My Rating 2 out of 5 stars

  1. Too bad this book didn't work well for you . . . I understand why you had a problem with Aurora, though, the kind of characters who accept things too easily get on my nerves, too. Hope you're going to really enjoy the second book in her other series!

  2. Aw, that's disappointing :( The premise is pretty interesting too, def. something I haven't run into before. Oh well *sigh*
