Sarah ♥ dog crazy ♥ Why are there PNR books on the list?


message 2: by Krazykiwi (new)

Krazykiwi I just removed a ton of books from here, for not fitting the criteria. Mostly series books, but also quite a few that didn't have urban fantasy showing up.

There's still a lot here that I'd call more PNR, but they are shelved Urban Fantasy enough for it to show up on the genres list, so they stay for now.

Anyway, now the list looks a lot more manageable and useful, I think.

Mack pretends to be a were-hamster. When people try to make her shift, she says no and plays it off as her having an inferiority complex. People are rude to those that don't shift into a predator, so it's funny that she pretends to be a little furry hamster.

Mack is snarky.

The argument with a skittish, clingy character hiding under a diner table was funny. He may not be on team evil anymore, but it didn't stop me from enjoying her making this crybaby cry. I should be ashamed and surprised at what kind of person that makes me. I even enjoy remembering the wailing and quavering of Mr. Clingy's voice (audiobook). I guess this could be summed up as enjoying the level of irritation that Mack was willing to inflict upon the other characters.

She's an independent thinker. She calls the Lord Alpha a megalomaniac and pretty much distances herself from the creepy hero-worship/cult behavior that the pack members have.

The book takes place in a world where mages & shifters are expect to hide their magical nature while living in modern human cities.

I found myself enjoying putting on Mack's attitude while listening to this series on audiobook. I wish I wrote a review on these books as I had read them. I go through many books a week, so last year's books seems so far away. I'm usually a lurker, but I had to add Mack to the list of heroines.
