The Golden Line by Addison Cain
It’s no secret that Addison Cain is one of my favourite authors of all time. Whenever I’m in a book funk, I pick up anything of hers and shove my nose deep into my Kindle. It’s the perfect cure, and I can honestly say I could read any of her work over and over again. It’s original and exquisite, and the former is something difficult to find in today’s saturated indie book market.
The Golden Line is probably the first book in the last few months that has actually made me stop and savour it. I consumed it in one day, but I rolled the delicious words around in my mouth in felt the dark eroticism to my very core.
This is a story to really get into, characters to actually quite literally care about, and a world to revisit over and over again. Morgaine was fabulous, and Simin her dark hero — and yes, ‘hero’ is the correct word for him in this one — and the plot was not at all what I was expecting, taking a fork about halfway through to truly make this a different work from Born to be Bound and the Alpha’s Claim trilogy.
Fantastic and worthy in its own right, The Golden Line is one of my top releases of 2018.
NB: The Golden Line was originally a short story, Consumed, published in the Royally Mine anthology. It has been extensively extended and is well worth picking up even if you’ve read the original.
