The pack are back!

WOW. I have so many questions. These books keep leaving me reeling, constantly wanting more. I loved getting chapters from Donovan's point of view, he's been through so much and I'm glad we're seeing more of him. I'm intrigued by the mystery surrounding baby RJ, particularly Kai's panic around this. I feel like there's something more happening there. Also evil-Quinn gives me so many feelings. I just want him safe.

In season 3, we get to add Donovan's POV to the mix and at first I thought it was just going to be too many narrators, but each new POV adds something really interesting to the story. Every narrator has such a unique voice and lens for us to see the story through and we get to see them evolve and adapt to their ever-changing world.

I really like that we have new people working and/or living with the Belladonna pack - especially Tate. His presence brings out so much more of the good in Tristan...h

I am a massive sucker for anything circus/carnival related, so the whole backdrop of Baccalania was so fascinating. Such a huge change of pace for Quinn's character and there's another new POV for the season! I can't get enough of this series. ...more
