Today I am reviewing Skin Deep, the first book of the Eternal Forces Series by Megan D. Martin.
Kiera hates being overweight and hides behind thick layers of clothing. One night, her friends present an opportunity that seems impossible to believe. With a single spell, she can have the thin physique she's always coveted.
But all magic comes with a price: no sex or she'll revert back to her old body. Kiera accepts the cost. It's not like she has men lined up at her door. Obeying this one tiny rule isn't difficult at all—until the night she meets Cain, a were-tiger and a soldier with the Eternal Forces.
When a slew of unexplained murders forces Kiera and Cain together, they'll have to face the horrors of their pasts. Will Kiera realize she is worth more than her outward appearance? Or will she make the wrong choice and lose everything—including her life?
Megan Martin has put together a very entertaining and interesting tale as an introduction to her new series of Paranormal Romances. This story, with its strong moral backdrop against bullying and stereotypical attitudes, takes us into a deep, wonderful realm of escapism. Running away from her troubles lands Keira in, what at first, seems even more trouble. But, falling prey to the dominant were-tiger Cain turns out to be a changing point in her life, and gives her the opportunity to view her true worth from his perspective, and that of the love that grows between them.
The path to fulfilment is still not easy for Keira, as she continues to face challenges as she progresses through the cathartic series of events and encounters that will test both her resolve, and the potential love between her and Cain.
An excellent novel, with a strong underlying message - most unusual for this genre. Well worth the read.
