I’m so disappointed. And part of my disappointment comes from all the five-star reviews for this book! I was expecting something great between a hunter and all these new guys, but instead I got a book that needed work with characters I couldn’t care about.
First off, this book ended up being a serial, and I don’t mind those. But the story wasn’t strong. The writing, which really is just Ashryn’s POV, was nothing but her rambling and thinking about how awesome she is and how everyone else sucks. I could suffer her attitude if she actually had the means to back it up, and she didn’t. The only positive things I could say about this book is how cool the idea of it seemed. And I don’t like to drag, because I know how hard it is to write a book, let alone get one published, but I could not recommend this. Because of the reading experience, I wouldn’t pick up another Greenwood book, but if I looked at the reviews this time and saw that she’d improved or something, maybe I’d try her out again.
