Review: Unborn by Amber Lynn Natusch

Unborn (Unborn series)
Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness…
Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she’s ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel.
Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn?
From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

Shona's review DNF

I am marking this as a DNF at 32% and it has taken me 10 days to get this far through. As is my standard, I loathe to give a star rating to a book I don't finish. It just isn't fair.

The blurb made this book sound fantastic and I really wanted to love it, but the truth is the dialogue was so stilted that I actually struggled with it. Having to reread several sentences of conversation when reading is never a good sign.
Khara has supposedly been in the underworld for centuries, yet her brothers treat her like an adolescent.
The relationship with her newly discovered brothers felt really forced. And on more than one occasion I felt icky just reading their interactions. Dude! She's right there, within earshot, even if she wasn't your sister its still wrong to speak to/about women like that. Yes Kierson I'm looking at you.

I thank Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with a copy for review, unfortunately this one was not for me.
