In Sterling, Dannika Dark takes readers on a journey into a supernatural world where the main character, Zo Merrick, must navigate through a series of trials to unlock her true potential. Dark, a talented author heavily steeped in the paranormal romance genre, has created a dark and exciting tale filled with magic, mystery, and romance.
The novel begins with Zo, a lowly grocery store clerk, discovering that she has the ability to shift into a wolf. From there, she is taken under the wing of a group of werewolves, including the enigmatic and enigmatic prince of the Sterling pack, Adam.
As Zo learns more about her newfound powers, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam, and the two become entangled in a tumultuous romance.
Sterling is set in a world that is both familiar and unfamiliar, with Dark crafting a world of werewolves and magic tucked away in the shadows of modern-day society.
Her descriptions of the pack hierarchy, the use of magic, and the rituals of the werewolves are all immersive and intriguing. The setting is conveyed with great detail and makes it easy for readers to envision themselves within the story.
As for the characters, Dark has crafted a cast that is as complex and vibrant as the world they inhabit. Zo is a strong, independent woman who is quick to stand up for herself and those she cares about.
Adam, the alpha male of the pack, is haunted by his tragic past and struggles to trust others. Dark does a great job of exploring the dynamic between the two characters, crafting a slow-burn romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seat.
One of the strengths of Sterling is Dark’s writing style, which is smooth and easy to read while still conveying the depth and complexity of her characters and world-building. The pacing of the story is also strong, with the plot moving quickly and seamlessly from one scene to the next.
Despite these strengths, Sterling is not without its flaws. The ending feels rushed and unsatisfying, with loose ends left untied and unanswered questions.
Additionally, some of the secondary characters feel underdeveloped, and readers may find themselves wishing for more information about their backstories or motivations. Despite these flaws, Sterling is an enjoyable and captivating read for fans of paranormal romance.
Dark has crafted a world filled with intrigue, beautifully flawed characters, and an exciting plot. It is an excellent choice for readers looking for a novel that explores the dynamics of power, the nature of destiny, and the enduring strength of love.
I give Sterling a 3.5 out of 5 rating, recommended for those who are into this genre.
