Ms McKenna managed to grab this idea of werewolves, turn it into her own and weave it so thoroughly into the story I found myself thinking that if werewolves really did exist, they would be exactly where she wrote they would be. So I have to admit I was a bit disappointed when I finished the book. All of the men survived - a stunning 100% survival rate. I gotta brush-up, ya know. They found themselves immediately panicked, leaving six of their own to drown.
It was such a enthralling, captivating read, turning something as overused as 'werewolves' into what seemed to be a whole new world for me. That about sums it up. I think maybe military books aren't at the top of my list of faves. Phewww, I definitely hit the jackpot with this series. Lucas Young and Noah Hammond were interesting characters. But that's not to say that this isn't a love story.
I'll get to explain something to them, and when they don't understand it after 10 hours of conversation, I'll get to do it all. Not in the sense that the narrative was particularly exciting, because it wasn't. For some reason I became intent on watching the raindrops on the window. I am a big fan of men in combat, this is no secret, but if you are not. I loved the spin in werewolves, the world Ms McKenna has created, along with the beautiful romance. This is a fabulous start to a new series. There's just a lot of action and exciting situations! Again, I don't know anything about Lucas' background which hindered me growing attached to him or Lucas.
However, the actual nitty gritty of a military book bores me to tears. However, my biggest complaint about this book was the bone-headedness of Lucas. My buttons were more than pushed. . Cultivate trust and composure as if your life depends on it. In the military, not in the military, but so wonderfully integrated into a society where they're not hiding their existence in shame, but rather being looked upon with a bit of reverence and lots of respect.
Adding an extra half star because book 2 made me like book 1 more. And why did I have to read, what felt like, 100 pages of them jacking each other off? All of the possessive interaction between Noah and Lucas? I'm more pissed that he's gettin' a reward. As impressive as what you've shown has been, I cannot just rally the North's forces over your word alone. So first there's Lucas, whom. The way the heroes kept brushing cheeks and giving each other hand jobs became boring too soon a bit vexing, too, and the last 15% or so of the book felt like one long sex scene. I absolutely adored this book.
The Decriptive writing I so loved. It's hard finding some great shifter stories out there, especially when you are not into the whole mpreg deal. I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did. It's also pretty heavy on the military talk. Let's talk about the hand jobs, folks. The Guardian had a shard of the blade of the Hive's king, Oryx, which had been forged into his own sword, Bolt-Caster. I'll get to them at th Alright, so I started reading this book with big expectations; I mean, first I love any book that has to do with the military, and second the blurb sounded absolutely amazing, exactly my kind of book.
A floating, green-spiked eye was that point. Who doesn't like the idea of legend, but seriously, it's all about the biting. Romance between a human Lieutenant and his werewolf Sergeant in the Marine Corps that is written in a straightforward and unembellished style. No attempts were made to scavenge or salvage and no efforts were made to construct shelter. They have barely any character whatsoever - no past, no sister, no degree, no mortgage, nada. He knew they'd probably die, but it would still buy him some time to get away. There wasn't too much inner turmoil where the characters sit around and ponder things for chapters and chapters.
And as his relationshi I absolutely loved loved loved this story! Sexy hot scenting and marking of two alpha males in combat situations and more. For that reason I think, the romance failed to capture me as much as it could have. The crew of the survived for one year and seven months. The miscommunication while somewhat understandable at the beginning began to irritate me a bit as Lucas and Noah's bond grew. Okay, so after a long time without my review I am finally doing this. If I'm the lawyer to these two fellas, I'd be set for life. I got, in a very affectionate manner described, a truly romantic tale.
