Book Review: River of Luck (Torn Worlds Book 3) by Donna Augustine

I’ve been locked away in a vampire dungeon for nearly a year, and I’ll die here if that’s what it takes to protect my secret. Now he arrives with his pack and thinks he’ll be the one to break me? I’ll die first.

It was just another raid until we found her. Shivering and bedraggled, she should’ve seen me as her savior but she stares at me as if I’m her worst enemy. Maybe I am, because I should let her go, forget I ever saw her, but I won’t…

This romance novel can be read alone, but it’s set in a common world with book one.

After a pack raids a vampire compound, they discover a young woman being kept in the dungeon separate from all the other humans being held against their will. Unsure why she was in a cell by herself, or what species she is, the pack members turn her over to their Alpha, Dante, to decide what to do with her. Dante has no idea what she is but knows that if the vampires kept her isolated, it might be in the pack’s best interest to bring her back to their compound to figure out what she is. After being held against her will for almost a year, River’s only goal is to protect her secret of what species she is and find a way to escape as soon as possible from the shifters.

Dante and River seem to hate each other but have a connection that can’t be explained. Most of the pack members really like River and try to help her any way they can, much to the disapproval of Dante.

The mystery of what species River is continues to baffle everyone, including the reader, for much of the book, which I really liked. It’s nice to read a book that you can’t figure out a few chapters into.

About the Author:
Donna Augustine was an odd child, had a brief moment of conformity in early adulthood and then decided to embrace her craziness as the years rolled by. It's her inner crazy that she credits with coming up with the ideas for her books. One part hypochondriac, a few dashes of paranoia, topped with a sliver of uptight and delivered with a relaxed flair, she kicked the proverbial box down the yellow brick road a couple years ago to embrace her true self.

She can be reached by a carrier pigeon, set free in a south by north direction, where she resides in Neverland with her two Siberian cats. Cats who, by the way, aren't as hypoallergenic as she believed they'd be.

For the conventional minded, and those of you without a pigeon on hand, she can be reached at She responds to most emails within three dusk periods.

P.S. For those of you looking for the discarded box, it was sitting beside the road for a while but has since disappeared completely.

  1. I really enjoy reading, especially romantic novels. But I am forced to study hard in college, which prevents me from devoting enough time to my hobby. However, using the site I can order student work from experienced academic writers.
