One girl who was supposed to be a nun
Two hot twin warriors separated at birth
Both of them want her
But neither one can have her alone.
Because with Twin Kindred, it takes two…
How does a girl who’s about to take her vows as a nun wind up with two hot warriors to pick from?
That’s Becca Malone’s problem. After eating a piece of bonding fruit cake, she wound up with Far and Truth, Twin Kindred warriors who were separated at birth and never formed a proper Twin bond. Because the twins hate each other, Becca feels free to choose between them…until the three of them fall into a vision of unspeakable terror…a vision that is about to come true if Far and Truth don’t quickly form a bond. And guess who has to be the bridge between them?
Becca is scared to death she’s going to wind up bonded for life and Far and Truth aren’t too thrilled about the prospect of sharing her. But when the ominous vision sends them on a trip to a rogue planet where the inhabitants live out their lives in a strange, mental internet called the Mindscape, they have no choice but to come together in the most intimate way possible.
Becca comes to realize she can’t choose between the light twin, sweet and gentle Far and the dark twin, intense and passionate Truth. But how can she be with both of them at once when the twins have sworn to be forever…Divided?
Part of me really liked this book…conceptually. The world building is good and the cultural adjustments as well overcoming personal prejudice is compelling.
But the angst just goes on and one. And it the same dang thing over and over. I didn’t like any of the characters by the end of the book. I sympathized with them but I wanted the to heal and grow and fall in love but instead the book felt like a dirge to me.
I don’t like hang wringing angst in books much. I don’t mind that things are hard and take a long while to move past but this is too much of the same thing for me to really enjoy the romance.
