She wore a tight, red, midriff-baring tube top to one of her graduate classes? Er, no.

There's a psycho stray on the loose raping & murdering human women and kidnapping fertile Pride females. What better time to tell your Daddy you're leaving the Pride? P.S. I might take you more seriously if you weren't in your early twenties and still calling your father "Daddy."

Flannery Are you kidding? I wore that outfit to every single one of my grad school classes.

Flannery Even in winter.


Galla Yeah! Nothing says "I take my graduate studies seriously" like a muffin top.

Regina Oh wait galla - you didn't see that in class? I am seriously laughing here. That alone makes me not want to read the book.

From the cover picture, she doesn't look like a muffin top....There are things that drove me crazy in this book, but I still liked it.


Erika  Badass she's young... she's young... OK she really just is stupid, but hey we all act stupid sometimes. Faythe got on my nerves. I read the whole series though. It is sort of compelling

AH I plan to read the rest of them too. I enjoyed the story and it was fun to make fun of her TSTL moments.


message 8: by Regina (new)

Regina For me, it isn't about judging the character -- but the author, you know? That she sets up an unbelievable or not genuine situation. I have a hard time when careers or situations that I know very well are portrayed completely wrong -- I am okay with a few subtle or understandable differences. But big stuff bugs me and it makes me doubt the author's background work in writing the story. But, I have the first one and I will definitely read it.

AH The main character is a 22 year old girl that has lived a sheltered life (sound familiar?). Life experiences do change you and I find that she does mature a little bit in the next book. She is being groomed to be the Alpha, so she can't be all bad.


message 10: by Regina (new)

Regina I agree, that is all important and I know you are getting at Mac -- but I thought all of her reactions and choices made sense with what was happening to her and seriously, I never saw anyone wear a half top to graduate classes, lol. So that makes me doubt the author and how she is writing the story. But I am still going to read it -- with an open mind. :)

lol, exactly.

I'm not hating the book, but Faythe definitely is getting on my nerves. At this point, I'm not at all sure why she's being groomed to be the next Alpha. She seems like a really poor choice for the job. She's not especially bright, she's not especially good with things like strategy or control, and right now, she doesn't want the job.

Ah, well. Growth arc!

Regina I can't wait to read this and see my impressions. I tend to immediately sympathize with UF characters and rarely get irritated with them (bad trait on my part) -- despite everything else. Loving your status updates.


Galla I'll be curious to hear your reaction, too! The thing is, Faythe is in a situation that should make it easy to sympathize with her. The males in the Pride outnumber the females by a huge margin, so choosing not to breed is not an option for her. I get how frustrating that issue of reproductive choice would be for the character. In addition, she's a potential target for a group of psycho kidnappers. Tough spot, right?

But then she opens her mouth and ruins the inherent situational sympathy.


message 14: by Regina (new)

Regina Very tough spot, I can see that. Psycho kidnappers -- are there any other kind? I guess PNR books love to use as characters those rational and sexy kidnappers. :) I can think of a few .....

I am now wondering if back in grad school if I had worn a red tube top -- would I have gotten more funding? Maybe I was missing out.

Bwahahaha! Somebody must have endowed a fellowship for tube top-wearers. The Cleavage Division of the Low Rise Society?


message 16: by Regina (new)

Regina LOL!!!! That sounds exactly right -- I love it. Darnit, and all that time writing essays, filling out applications, going to talks and cofee meet and greets -- I could have just worn a tube top! :)

new_user LOL, Regina! Brilliant! Let me jot this down...
