Erie isn’t having a great week. Her time of freedom is up, and the Templar Knight who comes to claim her is an overgrown, broody, alpha a-hole who kisses like sin, and is determined to have her. What’s a girl to do other than teach him that she cannot be owned by him or his kind?
Callaghan will stop at nothing to save his race. Bound by the Templar Code, he has stood as protector of humanity; a witness to the countless wars that forged the world. Too much depends on his ability to catch one female, and create a life before time runs out. If the hour glass finishes before he succeeds, both races will fall to the curse placed on them by ancient witches have been awakened from the eternal slumber.
With two races hanging in the balance, he’s going to have to get creative to trap the little she-wolf who seems to be as elusive and untamed as her name claims her to be.
Oh, Holy Knight sparked my interest providing a segway back to one of my favourite Fae worlds that I have been meaning to catch up with for ages. It took me a while to get into the story as I didn’t instantly connect with the characters. The world building is prominent and the romance scarce. A word of advice, read the author’s warning at the beginning of the book, it is spot on!
The story kicks off with a snarky exchange outside of a club between Erie and a Knight. Erie experiences the pressure of the prophecy for which others insist she was created for. Her mission is to avoid becoming trapped into being an incubator at all costs. Now that part of the story gave me shudders, but her determination and fight to remain independent impressed me!
Callaghan tells Erie he is the lesser of two evils. He generously proposes she go with him, do the deed and then he’ll grant her freedom. It was too good to be true. Without Callahan gaining Erie’s loyalty or trust, the steamy chemistry wasn’t enough to sway my interest in them as a couple.
So begins Erie’s conundrum of avoiding falling into the numerous traps being set for her. She shows her strength when cornered proving she won’t be messed with. Callaghan keeps appearing but he is yet to win her over. The advantages Erie gains are minor victories and the battle has just begun.
Ms Hutchins has lured me into The Wicked Knights series with the promise of more. I enjoyed the witty dialog and interesting characters but I needed more. The ending left me at a crossroads, not blown away by this novella but definitely eager to read on.
