That moment when you literally cannot put a book down so you read the whole thing? Yep, just had one. Two reviews in one day?! Sickening I tell you. To be fair- I did take at least a day and a half to read the last one.
What can I say? This book ripped me apart. So I had to keep reading because there was no way I was finishing without my HEA. This is the fourth book in Jeaniene Frost's 'Night Huntress' series and it did not disappoint. Was I irritated? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes. Was I happy? Yes. I think I went through every sort of emotion possible in this book.
This is truly the first time in three books that we have seen Cat and Bones' relationship truly rocked to the core. He's overprotective, she's pig-headed. And gah, the miscommunication between them. They both say some pretty awful things to each other and at times really treat each other like crap. However, through it all, I would say this only strengthened their relationship.
I love love LOVE Vlad's character. He showed up in the previous book (it's Dracula!) and he's back for more. He's witty AND he really turns out to be on Team Cat. I'm glad he's got her back.
I was glad there hardly any (if at all) Tate in this book. He gets on my nerves. I get that he's in love with Cat, but constantly nagging her about her changing her mind? That's annoying on so many levels. Take the hint, buddy.
Cat's mom also plays another role in this book. I feel for her, I really do. We'll see how that plays out in more books. (Sorry- I won't spoil it for you!)
I have the fifth book on my Nook ready and rearing to go! And then I'm on the waitlist for the sixth one, so you'll finally be able to read a review that isnt part of this series. After this next one, I think I'll need a change of pace from vampires and go to on werewolves! The third Mercy Thompson book awaits me as well.
