This review is from: Hunted by the Others (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a book addict, always have one or more on the go and like to have ones i can read and re read.
I read the reviews for this and was expecting something much, much more from this book. I love Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels as female fantasy leads - good strong characters, and have found a few others. I was hoping Shiara was going to be one too - but no :( Sadly i wondered why on earth she got into detecting as she seemed not only completely clueless about it but lacking in any kind of spirit. For heavens sake she needs to speak to a centuries old vampire and doesn't recognise him? Didn't she do any research first? Then he seemed set for the usual handsome bad boy hunk and yet...apart from his first promising appearance he too wimps out. The top boss in the magic team gets bumped off pretty quick too - clearly the magic team aren't all that....and the werewolf packs aren't sure whether they want to be werewolf baddies or poseurs hoping for a place in Crufts.
The plot initially has potential, and i kept reading thinking it would improve - past halfway i thought maybe it was scene setting for a series and would perk up - disappointed on both fronts. This book takes so many peculiar turns that it seems as if the author can't decide whether she's writing about fantasy and supernatural creatures, or whether she wants to reinvent that Da Vinci Code..
