Pieces (Patchworks #1) by Toni Aleo
Release Date: 27.06.16
In New York City, an underground society of supernatural beings exists, hidden among everyday humans. They don’t know of our activities or any of our secrets.
The districts of the Works are made up of vampires, wolves, shifters, witches, and I’m in the fifth and arguably most important district, the Patchwork. My father is the leader of our group, and he oversees all of the other factions.
As his only daughter, that makes me the princess of it all. Cool, right? Actually…no.
Sure, I live in a mansion and money isn’t an object, but that doesn’t matter because I can’t leave. I have a guard who follows me around 24/7. My father and three older brothers treat me like I’m a fragile piece of glass, never allowed to take an independent step or make any decisions on my own.
It’s beyond frustrating—especially since my father essentially runs my life.
He says what I do, when I do it, how I do it, and all that jazz. He tests his formulas and new techniques on me. I’m a walking science experiment.
I hate it.
I hate my life here.
But then he comes along: Killian.
He’s just some vampire…or so I thought.
But you’ll have to read my story to find out what I mean. To know my secrets.
Until then, though, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rebecca von Stein.
And I’m a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein.
Welcome to the Works.

I’m really going to try to keep this review spoiler free. I went into this book, thinking “I haven’t read Paranormal in so long, Am I going to like this.” I’m a huge Toni Aleo fan and I love her Assassins Series like so much!
I have to be honest here, I wasn’t feeling this book. Which was a little disappointing. It just didn’t click for me. There where so many points in this book where I thought “What is up with this girl!” I wanted to knock her out or something. Yeah no this was just not for me.
I couldn’t get over that her dad gave her Man Legs! This was on my mind through the whole book! .
“You treat me like a fucking baby. I’m stronger than most, and I’m human. What does that even say? Don’t know? Let me tell you,” I yell, going toe-to-toe with him. “That I’m a fucking badass!” With that, Oceanus pushes me so hard, I fall back and do two rolls, landing on my face with a hard oomph.
