The violence is a little graphic, and the main character is a cop, so you expect that. The sex was also super graphic, which detracted for me, but I am still a fan. If you are interested in reading more from C. Kittredge, I recommend starting with Street Magic.
I didn’t find the main characters very interesting or compelling; some of the folks on the sidelines were much more interesting. But I can’t bring myself to read more in this series. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Decent characters, okay plot, and chock full of witches, demons, werewolves, and rumor of vampires. When I decided to purchase this book I expected, well I am not sure what I expected But it didn’t really amaze me. It was a good read, funny and dark, but it just didn’t convince me The world-building was one of the best I’ve read but it felt like the characters weren’t ‘alive’.
Like their emotions weren’t those felt of normal people And, in my own weird thinking Werewolves should mate for life It’s one of the characteristics of the natural wolf and I always thought that it would be also in werewolves Here that isn’t the case and even though that is up to the writer The mourning just wasn’t there, when you lose pack, it’s like you lose family at least that is how I see it the Alpha just didn’t convince me of his mourning, and I will just stop here as I already said too much and don’t want to spoil the fun.
I’m sincerely hoping this is the case. Luna is a cop fighting her werewolf nature, and while she’s labeled tough-as-nails, that description tends to mean aggressive, angry, and flippant in this story.
Not that that’s a bad thing, but in this case, it made it difficult to garner a lot of sympathy for her. It took me awhile to slog through the first third of the story because of it. Once the caitiln and action took off, I did much better and is likely the reason I enjoyed the story as much as I did. I’ll also freely admit that I really liked Dmitri much more than Luna. The author has created a bad boy hero, who – oh my god – does bad things! He is not a nice man. He’s the leader of his pack of biker werewolves, and he’s both dealt drugs and pimped.
He’s snide and smirky, and by all accounts should annoy me, but I found his troubles, his pain, far more interesting and engaging than Luna’s. The world building is so-so, but the action is tightly written and that’s enough to caaitlin up for its shortcomings elsewhere. I’m definitely picking up the sequel when it comes out in August.
I think there’s enough promise there – and Dmitri – to keep going with the series.
The protagonist is a police detective which leads me to believe that at least one of the featured reviewers never read the book. Her character tends towards nasty well se is a were wolf and isn’t really sympathetic.
Especially her relation with Dmitri. As for the firing and suspension that may work for a small town department but in a large department personnel and Internal Affairs would be all over it like white on rice.
I realize this is a fantasy but if you need reality to intrude it needs to do so in a believable manner. Perocadan Oxycodone and aspirin is a powerful analgesic and is used in Guided Anesthesia a big dose and you might not notice your finger getting cut off.
It has been replaced for postoperative with formulations using acetaminophen or the very similar Hydrocodone with acetaminophen Vikaden as they don’t contribute to bleeding as does aspirin.
Diazepam is Valium which is an anticonvulsant, hypnotic, sedative, skeletal muscle relaxant occasionally used for small animal sezures as well as pre operative tension reduction. Both are tightly controled Valium less than Peroset et al. Neither would be something I would consider if I were going to incapacitate someone prior to tourture.
Mabye Ketamine loosely controlled large animal tranqulizer AKA K-hole, Special K, which induces halicinations and sometimes the illusion of pain. The main plot is something of a clieche but the author pulls that off well. The sub plots are uneven though and character development is overall a little disappointing. Some humor helps as does the slightly different take on were wolves. Overall an Ok read and I will checkout the follow on.
One person found this helpful. This is a decent book but I’m wondering if it was one of Kittredge’s early works or even first work. It’s a bit predictable and the main character’s development confused me. Her actions were really outrageous and often stupid but the reason for this was not shown clearly enough. I’ve read some of Kittredge’s two other series; one based in London and the other a steampunk YA series. The London series first book was a 4 star the steampunk series a five.
So I’m hoping this series gets better. I’ll give the follow up books a try. So, I really liked this book. I read it in about a day.
For me it was a page turner. The only thing I didnt like was the way they described Dimitri. I imagined him to be dirty and at one time he was a pimp! I am suppose to despise him and then want her to be with him. Sorry, I just cant seem to warm up to a pimp – regardless of whether he is reformed. Other than that, I really liked the book. It grabed my interest and held it the entire time. I am looking forward to the next book.
