SAVAGE: THE AWAKENING OF LIZZIE DANTON: is a dark standalone novel by L.A. Fiore, spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Lizzie Danton and Brochan McIntyre

This kicks starts off with Brochan, the day he arrives in this world, his mother dying during childbirth, a father blaming him for her death, over the years we see the terrible, unforgivable acts his father dishes out on his son. Each year that goes by the hate intensifies, the punishments escalate more each time. Your heart hurts for this small defenceless child that only has his father's servants and a teacher that goes above and beyond what many others were to scared to voice.

Then we meet Elizabeth (Lizzie), also raised in an unloving, un-nurtured environment, sent to a private boarding school at the age of ten, out of sight, out of mind the only thing that kept her going is the enjoyment she gets out of painting.

To present day. Lizzie has just learn’t that she’s inherited a cottage in Scotland by an Aunt she knew nothing about, just another thing her mother kept from her. On a whim she goes off to Scotland to lay claim to her heritance with a saddened heart of missing out on getting to know her Aunt, but Scotland hooked it's claws into her and she had found a place that she could finally call home. 

Brochan is shrouded in mystery some folks in town whisper that he's a werewolf others are more clued on to what he does for a living, but all steer clear of him. He's reserved, mysterious and undeniably dangerous. 

As a side note: this isn't a paranormal novel. 

I loved these two, apart I didn't really connect to them individually but together they touched my soul, the feels kicked in, her quirky talks to herself to his dark scowling side, just worked perfectly. 

In the beginning I did struggle to get into this, it wasn’t until Lizzie touched down on Scottish soil where the magic began. I think the author did a brilliant job bringing Scotland alive, seeing everything through Lizzie’s eyes, experiencing everything firsthand, the language, the strange foods, the countryside, everything was told in such graphic detail that if I closed my eyes I was taken on a mystical journey. Definitely a highly recommended one click come release day, this is a journey you will want to go on.




They call him a monster. 
Pale blue eyes as cold as ice that see right through you. 
He’s hard. 
He’s damaged. 
He’s dangerous. 
He lives in a castle fit for a fairy tale, but he’s no prince. 
He’s savage. 
He’s brutal. 
He’s a killer. 
By an act of fate, our worlds collide. 
They call him a monster, but he is my salvation.
