You ready for a completely partial, biased, non-objective review?
Sweet, let’s roll.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I adore Suzanne Wright books.
And I adore the books in this series.
Yes, they all have OTT alpha males.
Yes, they have somewhat exchangeable snarky lead females.
Yes, these females always have epic one-liners.
Yes, they always argue with Greta the grouch.
In fact…not gonna lie…
Book in this series pretty much follow the same basic pattern.
And you know what?
Because this formula totally works for me and I dig it.
Now, I know some people like complete and total originality.
Or flowers blooming…
And birds singing to groundbreaking soundtracks or something…
Now, I understand that this isn’t everyone’s bag.
In fact, people who have read and loved other books in this series might feel like this is just more of the same.
Which it kind of is.
In fact, someday, I too might reach the point where where I am over the formula and want something different.
And until then I will keep scarfing this shit down like a whale with some krill.
Now, moving on.
Fans of the series will remember that Tao had a ‘lil thang for Taryn in book one…I was a little worried about how Wright would vault that little hurdle, but never fear, she manages it.
I loved the glimpses of Riley we got in the books preceding this one and she was definitely awesome. I especially loved her being a raven shifter – and the first non-predator shifter we have had so far, folks – so take that originality.
What I loved the most about this book though is that it jumped right in from the get go.
RIGHT in. *wink* *wink*
I also enjoyed that we got to spend some time with a raven “flock.”
The plot line here was a little weak in some aspects, I must say, but again…
Other than that, this book brought all the stuff that I love from Wright and, as always, I look forward to the next one.
