The book was about werewolfs and it had a great premise - Awesome! The book is free on Amazon - Double Awesome! The characters were annoying... errr, not so awesome.
Do not get scared, they weren't unbearable characters or anything, in fact, in the beginning I liked them a lot, Jaque and her friends were pretty cool and all of them had a unique sense of humor and very creative ways of talking. They would always have a smart-ass reply and they would also always find humor in the most dramatic-tense situations. And this was pretty fun - for the first half of the book. After that the jokes began to seem out of place and impertinent. With a final result of lame jokes:
By the end of the book all I wanted to do was slap them. As for Fane, as much as I wanted to swoon over him, he was so cheesy that, honestly, he could've been a girl. All of his words and actions were meant to be romantic, but they really didn't work for me, he was trying too hard. The only other downside of the book was that it was a bit... ridiculous at times. In a sort of that's-not-believable kind of way. For example Jaque can hear Fane's voice in her head from the moment she first sees him, and she immediately goes on to tell her best friends, and they all believe her and just want details on what he says... I mean, I love my friends, but if one of them comes telling me something like this I won't believe her and think she's joking. Once she says she's not kidding I'll just tell her she's plain crazy until there's proof. And I know they'd do the same if it were me, not to mention that I, personally, would not go telling them I hear voices. Then they discover they're werewolfs and yada yada and they all just believe, like 'bitch please, I just took my unicorn out for a walk.' This really didn't click with me :/
Good points: The fight for your mate theme, and the fight-till-the-dead at the end. Pretty intense and it really did manage to surprise me and get my heart racing. All in all, I doubt I'll be reading the next one.
An entertaining read that you can get for free for kindle on amazon right here.
