Read from March 29 to April 05, 2012

Why I read this book?: I just recently read the first book in this series, Moon Called, and enjoyed it so much I immediately picked up the second book. Which is pretty amazing considering usually I have to read something different in between books in a series.

What I liked?: As always, Mercy Thompson is my heroine! What I really loved about her in this book is that she took her "devil may care" attitude and used it to kick even MORE ass in this book than she did in the first book. She's so "real" even though she is a shapeshifter. I feel I could be friends with her, if she existed in real life. In the first book the bad guys were bad but in this book the bad guy(s) were even badder than that! The action is fast-paced and the mystery is great too. Usually, I'm lukewarm on love triangles but I think in the case of this series it works really well. Though I'm growing increasingly lukewarm on Samuel. But at the same time I'm growing more in "book boyfriend lust" with Adam. I really like the road that Stefan is traveling down, storyline wise...I can hardly wait to see how it/if it plays out. A lot of the secondary characters are starting to grow on me, even Ben...maybe he isn't so bad after all.

What I disliked?: I'm really starting to dislike the whole vampire seethe, with the exception of Stefan of course. Other than that I really don't have much in the way of negatives for this book.

Overall Impression: I might just have to come up with a whole new rating for series/books like this! LOVE this series so much I'm going to go grab book three off of my shelf as soon as I post this review.


Rating: Hand over the Paycheck!


Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a kick ass heroine who isn't afraid to get into harms way for the "people" that she cares about.

“His heart's occupied elsewhere," said Ben from behind me. "And even if it weren't he's not interested in your kind. But, I'm available and ready."
"You don't have a heart," I told him.” Just a gaping hole where it should have been.

Rita You liked that, I knew you would.


Bookish After Dark Yup, I'm really LOVING this series! I'm off to pick up book number 3 now!


Rita Who is your favorite male so far?


Bookish After Dark Adam so far, but Stefan and Ben are growing on me.


Rita I was Stefan, from the beginning. But I think that has a lot to do with my Vamp obsession. Adam and Ben grew on me. You are going to love this series and hate that the latest book will not be until 20 freakin 13 :D
