So I’ve been waiting for this book for a while now. I loved the first book in the series, it was very special to me, and I wasn’t disappointed with the sequel.
Let’s get down to business, shall we?
True to form, the story was focused more on the relationships between the characters than the external conflict. And of course, there was the
not so hidden message of tolerance. This one was primarily about not buying into stereotypes of different kinds of people. Tolerance and acceptance are universal messages throughout the story.
On to the fun stuff—It started with Ethan. He was like:
And then there was Miguel:
But then, we see Ethan nut up and get all toppy:
And then it was on.
But then Ethan would do his little growly jealous thing, and we were back to this:
I honestly expected Miguel to be a little harder to win over than he was, but who can resist the cute little Ethan-puppy.
I’m happy there weren’t a whole lot of tearful moments in this one, because I wasn’t in the mood to be sad. I LOLed a lot over the names. I just found it funny to have vampires named Ted and Ralph, and werewolves named Richie and Crissy. It makes them stand out from all of the Wraths and Rhages of the world.
The only thing I stumbled over was the accent/dialect of the shifters. Not because it was written badly, never that. Just as a southerner who’s been made fun of and thought to be dumb because of my accent, it felt a little tongue in cheek. But on Ethan, it was endearing, so it’s cool. 🙂
So, long story short, Ethan and Miguel found their way to each other and then it was happily ever after for them.
Another stellar story from
