Way back in March I was over at Dear Author with a review of Wild Sign by Patricia Briggs but I forgot to post the link here. Bad Kaetrin! Better late than never I say!
I had deeply conflicted feelings about this one. (Note all of the CWs – there are a lot.)
I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs. Mercy is back and this time she’s fighting witches.
Monthly Mini Review
Mating the Huntress by Talia Hibbert – B+ A light-hearted, funny, sexy Halloween-themed novella full of girl power where, no matter that the trope is fated mates, consent matters.
Luke Anthony is a werewolf who has the scent of his mate in his nostrils. Unfortunately, Chastity Adofo, his mate, comes from a family of Huntresses and is planning on killing him to cement her place in the family. She alone of all of her sisters has not been allowed to hunt because a witch prophesied at her birth that her first kill would “rip out her heart”.
The world building is somewhat unique among the oeuvre and very feminist – the women do the hunting and the men of the family are all caretakers and deeply in touch with their emotions. In this universe werewolves are largely solitary and, until they meet their mates, are not sexual. Luke doesn’t get an erection until he smells Chastity (and thereafter, it basically won’t go away. Of course.)
I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs. Fast-paced, tense and romantic. SO good.
I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs. I had high hopes for this one but I’m sorry to say I was underwhelmed.
I’m over at Dear Author with a review of Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs. It’s the latest instalment in the Alpha & Omega series and I loved it so hard I can’t even tell you.
