Or at least with her Celtic Wolves world. The world building is summed up in one word; epic. Throughout the book I was at the edge of my seat, even though the book holds a high pace, I couldn't get fast enough to the next scene. Yes, this goes straight to my favorites shelf.
I loved the leading characters, Rosa and Luc. They're both strong and both have a past that torments them. What I love the most about these books, is that Ms DeLima doesn't write weak characters. They have a backbone! And they're not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. If you strip away all the paranormal qualities from these characters, they're someone you connect with. You can put yourself in their shoes.
Even the bad guys are interesting. They're not written in such a way that they pull at your sympathies, but still you're interested in what drives them. You hate them, you want to see them die - but you're invested in them. That's some kick ass bad guys!
I hope this isn't the end of the series, as some supporting characters are left open ended. I need to know what happens next!!
The one thing I did not like about this book, were the drawings. I like to see things my own way in my mind, having someone supply my the images irks me. I don't want to see pictures the way someone else imagines it, I want to imagine things for myself. It is after all why I read books and not comic books....more

I've fallen in love with Ms DeLima's writing and world building. Her characters are strong and you can't help but connect with them. There were a lot of "awwww" moments, some incredibly sad moments, and the pace of the plot was strong. I've smiled, I've laughed, I've been at the edge of my seat and I've cried. This book has "everything" and I'm incredibly happy I have the next book in the series - moving on from this world and to a new one... an impossible task right now. This is one of those books you'll never forget....more
Sometimes I'm just not sure how to review a book I've just read, sometimes even putting off the review for a while doesn't help either. This is one suSometimes I'm just not sure how to review a book I've just read, sometimes even putting off the review for a while doesn't help either. This is one such book.
This is slightly more than "just" a smutty menage, but not a whole lot. The story itself is too short to make any connections with the characters, and there is little to no unresolved sexual tension going to keep the reader at the edge of their seat. They pretty much just jump into things from the get-go.
This is the first book in a series, but reading the blurbs, the other books focus on new characters. With how short this story is, and how little you get to know the characters, I was hoping that the rest of the books would be about the same people. Since it's not, and seeing how short these are, I'm not going to dive into the rest of the series. I need to feel like I connect with the characters for a book, much less a series, to hold my attention. 2 1/2 stars....more
