~REVIEW~ Mine to Tarnish by Janeal Falor

Mine to Tarnish (Mine, #0.5)Title: Mine to Tarnish
Author: Janeal Falor
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 6th

Katherine’s place is the same as any woman’s—on the shelf next to the dresses and bolts of cloth. When she’s sold to a warlock, life grows even bleaker. Her new owner is as old and rancid as he is cruel, driving her to do the unthinkable: run.

Nothing prepared her for being on her own. And she’s definitely unprepared for the warlocks hunting her down. But she must stay one step ahead because if caught, the best she can hope for is death.


After reading You Are Mine I could not wait until the next book in the series. In “You are Mine”, I thought that Katherine was a wonderful person and had hoped to read her story about her life before she became a Tarnish. So when I found out “Mine to Tarnish” was her novella I was anxiously awaiting for it. When I got this baby in my email I quickly finished my book as the moment to start it. And just like the first book I was not disappointed!

Like Serena, Katherine is expected to be owned by a master and to do as the Women’s Canon says. She has always known that one day she would be bought by a Warlock, if her blood was good. So when the time arrives, even though she hates everything about her society and rebels against it whenever she can, she is prepared to be taken away from her home.  What she doesn’t expect is for her new master to be cruel and disgusting. So with the help of her mother Katherine makes the ultimate decision. She goes on the run.

Katherine is sent to the safest place her mother knows, the Tarnish community. And after Charles, a male Tarnish, saves her he takes her into hiding with the others. But Elton, her new master, does not give up easily. When he comes looking for Katherine they all must go on the run, separately. While Charles and Katherine make their way to their new hiding spot, both fight for their life. In the end Katherine is set free, but at a high cost. 

And of course there is a romance in this book. Charles was a wonderful character and I loved his need to protect Kat at all cost. Following Katherine along as she discovers that all males aren’t the same and that Charles cares for her was wonderful. Like the first, there wasn’t a full out declaration of love, which I expected, but it was still just as great to read. 

My one wish is that this book would have been longer. Kat and Charles’s story was so great to read that I wish it would have continued beyond the end. I cannot wait to read the next book and to hopefully get a glimpse into the lives of the characters we’ve been introduced to so far. 

(You are Mine does not have to be read before this one. You should read it as well though!)
Happy Reading!!
