Review: River Cast

Title: River Cast
Author: Samantha Young
Goodreads | Amazon

I received a digital copy of this book from the author to review. This is my honest opinion.


Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...  
The war is escalating.

Caia is caught between her loyalty to the Daylights and her new insight into the hearts of the Midnights. Invited to train at the Centre under the tutelage of the Daylights, Caia and Lucien immerse themselves in the world of the Head of the Coven, Marita. With an upcoming battle hanging over their heads, Caia and her Alpha struggle to understand Marita’s vision for the future of the Coven, and withstand her manipulation and plans for them. Plans that are sure to separate Caia from Pack Errante; plans that inadvertently push Caia not only further away from Lucien, but from all Daylights.
Conflicted… Caia must choose a side in the war. And her choice may mean sacrificing all those she has come to love. 
YA Paranormal Romance for mature teens+ (some content may not be suitable for younger readers)


A great addition to the Tale of Lunarmorte!

I have to say that I liked the first book more, but by just a little bit. With the first book, we get the unique paranormal world built upon the history of the Greek Gods, and the excitement that goes along with the newness is hard to beat. With that said, River Cast was still a great book with lots of mystery and detail.

In this book, we get to hear from Jaeden's point of view, too. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like that, but it definitely added to the story and made it more well rounded. She really added so much more depth to the story! Jaeden rocks.

There was a new love story in River Cast, and it was great! I love Ryder! I think I like him even more than Lucien! He is caring and knows exactly what the object of his affection needs.

Caia seems to suffer from a desire to be strong by handling problems by herself instead of letting others know what is really going on. She tries to handle it all herself, and kind of alienates herself by doing so. She is a very caring and selfless character, though: giving up what she really wants for the good of her pack and the rest of the world. She's definitely growing up and learning how to make tough choices. 


  1. I hadn't heard of this series before, but if the first book contains greek mythology I'm totally there-loving that trend right now.
