Needless to say spoilers abound in Scarlet for Red.

Have I mentioned how much I love the covers? No? Let me digress into that for a moment. We got to see Gina/Red on the cover of Red and we got to see the deliciousness that is meant to be Morgan's naked chest as well. On Scarlet we get more Gina/Red looking badass in black and red leather plus Morgan looking badass with injuries, a fierce look on his face and unfortunately completely covered. The third book, Crimson (due out in November), promise

This was an enjoyable read, but not quite as good as the first book in the trilogy.

Red is living in Nuria now, trying to gain control over her wolf as unfortunately she isn't able to shift properly. When Morgan leaves town to stop a lab from cloning his dead wife and son, Red is left in charge of Nuria as well as building up a new tactical team. She soon realizes that the towns people don't trust her, partly because of her inability to shift, partly because they think she is to blame fo

This book was a great continuation of the first. Jordan Summers really draws you in with Red. I have officially become personally invested in Red's fate from here on out! :)

When Morgan leaves Nuria in search of what is left of his family, the town turns against Red. They see her as unstable as she is not yet able to consciously shift. It doesn't help that everyone believes it was her that drove their sheriff away. Red is forced to let most of the members of the Nurian Tactical Team that she had

SCARLET, Jordan Summers’ second book in her ‘Deadworld’ series follows Gina ‘Red’ Santiago as she struggles to achieve control over her werewolf side while dealing with treacherous co-workers in her alpha werewolf lover’s town of Nuria in the Arizona Republic and a would be dictator: Roark Montgomery. Left in charge by her chosen mate, Sheriff Morgan Hunter, Red is framed for a series of murders at the same time Hunter falls for Roark Montgomery’s extended plot using the memory of his dead wife ...more
This was readable but not as enjoyable as the first. There is too much reliance on the main characters being gullible and making stupid decisions in order to move the plot forward. Morgan makes a really foolish decision at the start, and jumps into action with almost no forethought. His explanation for his decision later in the plot seemed unlikely and hard to accept, particularly given what it ultimately cost Gina.
The story felt a bit jumbled and unfocused. Raphael switches affection far too q

DNF. (This may just become a thing. I average one DNF series every four years, but I'm on my second of the month.)

Here we are again with the 'I tried, I really did.' review.

To say Scarlet lost me within the first few chapters would be correct. The first in the series (Red) was mediocre but readable. The second, however, falls into the dank pit of overdone plotlines and elements of bad fanfiction. Whereas Red was frustrating at times due to the characters decisions, Scarlet suffers hugely due t
This book has Red trying to adapt to her new life in Nuria, so much has changed for her the least of which is trying to embrace her wolf side and getting it to manifest. Sadly she is unable to even with the help of 2 different people, her only change is one loan claw. Trying to set up a tactical team in Nuria is taking all her time until ghosts of Morgan's past surface causing him to leave to face them. At the same time an old enemy, Roark, surfaces to cause trouble in everyone's lives. With Roa ...more
I enjoyed the first book in this series, Red, and I have to say I really like where the author is taking this series. Although the plot line is a typical 'megalomaniac Hitler-type wants to take over the world and cleanse it of evil (you know, anyone different from him and the other Purebloods?)' Summers has made this a great read due to excellent character development and a smooth storyline. This is the type of book where you want to root for the good guys, Red and Morgan; hope that the other ma ...more
Errr... How can you just leave you mate? That was weird for me.

I'm still intrigued by this series but I don't like the over the top crowd mentality. I mean, seriously? It just seemed exaggerated.

And how can the villain be super lucky and ultra smart to plan all these? And also have a set of incompetent protagonists? I was frustrated most of the time.

One good thing is the "love making" scenes has been multiplied.

This is still an interesting read but you kind of saw how things will end up.
I read 'Red' such a long time ago that I thought it would be hard to get back into this series. But I was easily immersed back into the action. I have no idea why I'd left it so long, this series is well worth a read.
Same as the first book. Pretty hot for vampires and werewolves but I found my speed reading skills kicking in just to find out who the villian was.
