He’s been locked away his entire life.

He dreams of freedom.

The only way he can accomplish his goals is by breaking free of the chains tying him to a dark past and gloomy existence. But there’s one catch. He’s not human.

And he’s never set foot outside his jail.

Devoted to saving his peers as well as his own life, he sets out to find the one person that can help him achieve his objectives. He knows where she will be and what she will look like, but what he doesn’t anticipate is the fact he finds himself caring for the girl whose life he’s put at risk, more and more each day.

He has no name.

He has only known hatred and violence before her.

However, she will teach him to have faith in humanity, even if she can’t trust him.

Together they will embark on a journey to bring down a corrupt system responsible for the loss of many innocent lives. But when he finds his feelings compromised, can he still move on knowing that doing so will put an end to the life she once knew? How far is he willing to go to be free?

It’s tough to review Deliverance without giving anything away in regards to the plot. Let’s start by saying that I loved it! The story is told from the dual POV of Tiger and Kristina. Tiger is an intriguing main character, a clever mix of a naive, almost gullible young man, and yet he can also be strong and determined. At the beginning of the story, we learn he’s not human, and that he’s locked up – and he’s never set foot outside his jail. But if he wants to save his peers and his own life, he needs to escape and find the one person who can help him achieve his mission.

That person is Kristina, and soon enough, the two of them start falling for each other. The romance is interesting because Tiger, having grown up very sheltered, is very unlike other YA heroes (who tend to be over-confident and ‘cool’ rather than sweet). Tiger is just adorable, and very innocent, making him an unique character.

The storytelling is excellent, and the author does an excellent job with the world building and crafting the characters. The interactions between Kristina and Tiger were very engaging. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
