Horde (Razorland #3)

While I was waiting for this book to come out, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I kept playing it in my head, trying to figure out how it could possibly end. The conclusion I came to was that there was no way for it to end well and I was going to be sadly disappointed. To be honest, the third book of a trilogy usually sucks.

I am SO GLAD I was wrong. This book was perfection! Continue reading

Watching Deuce learn about the world was interesting. Watching people’s reactions to her was even better. They don’t realize it, but Deuce, Fade and Stalker are the best things that ever happen to Salvation. They know what the world is like outside of the walls. They know what is important.

Ann Aguirre has a gift for world building. There is always a fine line when creating a unique setting. Too much detail is boring and can’t really be accomplished without an information dump. Too little information and the whole story falls flat because the reader is spending too much time trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Aguirre nailed it. Continue reading

Faythe is a badass. She is not one of those “all-talk” type badasses either. She is currently working as an enforcer for her pride. I love that her father is letting her. Given that there are so few female werecats, you would think he would keep her wrapped in bubble wrap at all times. Instead, she is chasing strays that have come into their territory or broken one of their rules Continue reading

As a reader, you really start to feel the internal struggle Elena is dealing with as she tries her hardest to be “normal”. She is basically living 2 lives. She has the pack at Stonehaven, and Clay of course, and then she has humanity in Toronto with Philip. It goes beyond that though. She not only hides her wolfy instincts, she also hides any of the abrasive aspects of her personality. What can you expect though, given that she never had a stable home. Continue reading

I really wanted to like this book.  I was disappointed by the first in the series, but decided to give it another shot with the second book.  I was presently surprised by the second book and so I went into this book with tentative, but high, hopes. Continue reading

My hopes were admittedly low going into this book. I did not much care for the first book of the series but I wanted to be fair and give the series another chance.

I must say that this installment was much better than the first. Rebecca Gober seemed to get more into her story. The writing was more natural, the dialog was not as stiff and the story took on some interesting turns. Continue reading

I think that if I didn’t read as much as I do, I would have enjoyed this book more. Let me explain… because I read so much (several books a week) I know what it feels like to have a really good book suck you in and make you feel part of it. A book that, if you manage to put down, you do nothing but think about the characters until you can pick it back up again. While the story did keep me mildly entertained,(there were some parts where I had to force myself to keep reading rather than giving up on the book completely) it did not grab my attention and allow my mind to escape into that world.

One of my favorite things about good shifter romance novels is the mix of human and animal behaviors. Ok, so there really isn’t a way to write that without it sounding like bestiality.  I’ll try again… I like how the shifters have subtle differences in their behavior due to the fact that they are shifters.  For example, being more ‘touchy feely’ with each other and the strong bonds within their pack or pride. The way that they display their loyalty by following the rules of the alpha unconditionally. Continue reading
