Madeline Partner I'm so glad you don't like Ren. So many people who've read this love him. Shay is much better, my favorite character by far.

HeatherJay ( Loves Cliffhangers and Love Triangles! ) Totally agree! Shay was the only remotely interesting person. I couldn't understand why everbody swooned over Ren.

Madeline Partner Ren is a complete asshole to me, I can't stand him. Though unlike Lindsay, I'll be finishing the series. I've got Bloodrose on hold at the library, hopefully it'll be okay.

Lindsay @Queen I'm glad you agree! Ren is so annoying and Shay is my doll :D I just wish I could have enjoyed the series more...I hope you enjoy Bloodrose!

@Heatherjay Ditto. Shay is so interesting and Ren...ugh. He is not sexy. At all. :p

Dawn You're smart to quit after 1!! I didn't love Ren or Shay in the first book. Wolfsbane made me more of a fan of Ren's though. I know how Bloodrose ends and no way on gods green earth will I torture myself reading it!

message 6: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay @Dawn Lol, I actually know the ending of Bloodrose too cause someone told me :p I find it hard to believe for Ren to make an impression on anyone but hey, to each her own :)

message 7: by Dawn (new)

Dawn It is funny how everyone sees different characters in other ways! I actually hated Shay by the end of Wolfsbane. Kind of like Vampire Academy, it seems like it was a pretty good split (although I do think Dimitri had a slight lead over Adrian) on our lady hearts :) To me this is the total downside to love triangles. Chances are you'll fall in love with the guy left out in the cold every now and then.

message 8: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay I guess that's true sometimes. :) But I've only gone for the other guy in like two other books lol and I loved Vampire Academy! I actually loved both guys and it was hard to choose but Rose and Dimitri belong to each other. And I'm happy Adrian's getting a chance.

message 9: by Berenice (new)

Berenice I think make a good point, I also didn't like Ren and I dont feel he pulls his weight for a good love triangle. And well one we can't like them all, thank you putting an honest review out there, but specially for being respectful about it :)

message 10: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Well Berenice, I'm glad you can appreciate my honesty :) & I hope you enjoyed the series. Ren just wasn't very attractive...anyways, have you read all the books? And did you like them?

message 11: by Em (new)

Em I agree with Ren. I was totally Team Ren at the beginning, but as the story went on, I liked him less and less because I have problems with possessive, aggressive, jealous guys. He overdid it. It made me sad, because I really liked him at first and hated Shay, but by the end it was the other way around. My opinions on the characters flip-flopped, and that's just odd.

message 12: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Yeah, I usually hate when that happens depending on how much I like the writer and their writing style. Are you going to read the prequel series?

message 13: by Em (new)

Em There's a prequel series?? I don't even know if I will read the sequel.

message 14: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Lol, well I don't blame you. This series doesn't impress. Yes there's a prequel series unfortunately and I'll be avoiding that as well. Good to know someone can agree with me

message 15: by Em (new)

Em well, I liked the book, but I just don't know if i'd want to spend time on a series.

message 16: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay I get you. Plenty of other series that make me feel the same way.

message 17: by Em (new)

Em It was just SO LONG. I liked it, but I was getting impatient toward the end. Plus, a lot of the aspects I liked were the pack dynamics/drama, and in the sequel I have a feeling that the narrator isn't going to be around the pack a lot.. Correct me if I'm wrong, if you already read the sequel, but that's just how I see things going.

message 18: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay I haven't read the sequel and I don't think I ever will. I felt the same way! I felt like I didn't get the right info right away and as a result the book was too long. Its funny how we can rant about a series so much.

message 19: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Chung I don't hate you, because I totally loved this book. But, your review was strong. It expressed your opinion, and I won't try to hang you. Good job!

message 20: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Thank you so much Cindy I appreciate it! And you know what? I'm glad you were able to enjoy this more than I did.

message 21: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Chung :)I hope you find books that you like out there! Good Luck!

message 22: by Rita (new)

Rita Webb I mildly liked it. The world building, at least. But not enough to want to read the next one.

message 23: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Plus it seems like this series is never ending. There's a prequel series as well as a fourth book.

message 24: by Rita (new)

Rita Webb I'm reminded of a song my mom used to sing: "This is the song story that never ends; it just goes on and on my friends. Some people started singing reading it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing reading it forever just because . . . "
