ARC Review: Credo by Nashoda Rose

Title: Credo
Author: Nashoda Rose
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Book 3 of Scars of the Wraiths series
POV: First Person – Multiple
Expected Publication: October 24, 2016

 

An unrequited love.
A tortured past.
An unbreakable bond.

Their love was well-known throughout the immortal world.
The powerful Taldeburu Waleron and his Delara.
But tragedy struck and tore them apart for years. One believing the other was dead.

When fate finally brings them back together again it isn’t kind.
It’s cruel and testing. Sacrificial.

Because love has no remorse for its victims.
It doesn’t give you options.
And it won’t be stopped.

This is Waleron and Delara’s story.
It’s not pretty and it’s not kind.
But it’s theirs.

A band of fierce warriors walk in the shadows of the human world with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries and the rare Reflectors. They are known as the ‘Scars.

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Waleron was a well respected Taldeburu (leader) of the Scars. He made an oath to protect his people and prided himself for being highly committed to his role. He was happy with the love of his life until fate took an unexpected turn and forced them apart.

Delara Wyndam was a young impressionable Scar. She learned everything from Waleron’s guidance. When he was gone, she nearly lost her way. Now that he’s back, the pain still refused to go because he was no longer the person she knew.

Waleron and Delara’s relationship has been very volatile throughout the series. I had high hope for their story to be explosive and I’m so glad this book was a worthy representation of their love.

She’d be the death of me.

Waleron was never really my favorite in the series. He just seemed detached and sometimes abrasive. I’m glad to learn more of the back story of why he chose to be that way.

I’d hated myself. Hated who I’d become because of my love for a man who no longer wanted me.

I like how Delara was strong when doing something she believed in. At the same time, she was also very vulnerable, but knew how to use it to her advantage.

This book is definitely my favorite one in the series. The prologue was intense and carried through the book. The story was interesting with enough focus on the main plot while still having side stories. I love the last chapter and I secretly (or not lol!) wish it ended differently :p

I do have a little problem with one of the character though. I feel like the character was contradictory to what that person stood for – even for the character’s role in the story.

I loved him, but my love for him wasn’t enough. It never had been.

Credo is a tale of two people fighting for what they believe in. The intense and engaging story would appeal to fans of paranormal romance.

Note:
My favorite character in the whole series is Xamien. I wish he has his own book 😀

Final Verdict:
