AND IT IS GORGEOUS.
The first is still my favorite, but this cover is so much better than the second.
After I Finished
WHAT THE FUCK.
WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED.
Excuse me, I'm having an emotional breakdown.
Seriously, Jennifer, WHAT THE FUCK.
I can't believe it. I can't even write a review of this book because my emotions are colliding in a chemical reaction of rage, anger, sadness and depression.
I loved the first book in this series. I really did. I ...more
Oh. My. God.
I give Taken by Storm 4.5 stars on account of the the structure, the writing and the words and phrases used.
But for the actual story itself? The conclusion? The last 42 pages?
ONE STAR! AT MOST!
Are you kidding me Jennifer? Did you really just ruin this series for me?!?
Not only did you kill Chase, Bryn's one true love and mate, but throughout the book their was barely any mention of him! He spoke at the maximum of ten times with the maximum of two god damn words! Then you t ...more
All I have to say is this better not be the last book. That ending is great for a cliff hanger-ish type but not for an ending of a series.
(view spoiler)[Am I the only one that has been rooting for a Callum/Bryn pairing since the beginning. He loves her. It's not just the 'I kind of raised you' type love...I truly believe he loves her. She can't hate him. Honestly, I am glad Chase is gone. (Though I did cry when he died) But I saw it coming. And he was borin ...more
DON’T READ THIS BOOK.
Seriously. I wish I hadn’t read his book. In a couple days, or weeks, or months, after I’ve had time to cool down and get over the ending, I’ll understand why it happened and that, yes everything that happened made sense and had to happen and blah-di-blah-di-blah.
But I will never, ever forgive this ending.

In Taken by Storm, the setting takes place a few months after Lucas challenges Bryn. Bryn is called to a council meeting w ...more
Everything starts when Shay calls a Senate meeting because there´s a new Rabid on the loose, but what really matters is that the Rabid is a female. So of course everyone asks Bryn if any of her females are missing and that where everything gets tricky...
Bryn accepted Maddie leaving at the end of book 2, and she fears she may be the Rabid. She´s set on finding her in the ...more
I still love the cover though, and it probably wouldn't be as pretty if her hair was soaking wet!
I can’t tell you how much I love strong heroines and Brynn is one of my favorites. This girl has been through it all. She handles everything that comes her way like the alpha that she is. In Brynn’s case, that doesn’t always mean that her decisions don’t have ...more
I still loved the story.
I would love to read more about what happens next, but it doesn't look like any other books are in the works (yet?). Since this is the only series Barnes has written ...more
I don't even want to say too much because there's just too much that is too easy to spoil. Besides, just thinking about it makes me start crying again.
All I can say is, that the book picks up a few months after w ...more
I was thinking about a change and I wrote a small chapter on the unconscious part of her changing (if it happens). It goes like this:
I woke up by Dead Man's Creek again. This was becoming unconscious routine, I thought, looking around.
Why am I here?
I couldn't remember being knocked out.
Why am I knocked out? Oh lord, I might be missing something!
I started worrying. What was going on while I was unconscious? I reached out to Chase desper ...more
I think the thing that frustrates me the most in this book is that Callum went from likeable, in the first book, to borderline despicable in this one, without ever really becoming an antagonist ...more
This last book was everything, Raised by Wolves and Trial by Fire was leading to, Bryns journey growing up was really something.
I love Devon and I couldn't even bring myself to resent hi ...more
