Without giving too much away I got bored quite quickly and was frustrated reading about the characters aching muscles and how much she had been beaten up. I felt that there were now too many twists in the now for Jess to bring anything to a satisfactory conclusion and so she has to keep writing. I really hope that she has a plan of where to take this story and I'm sure she has but my worry is that people will become bored with this series if she doesn't wrap it up soon. The problem is that there will have to be a conclusion eventually - I just hope that it doesn't involve a vampire baby or anything.
Shia's got so much rage in her, so much anger. This is truly gritty urban fantasy, full of action, bitterness, tethered emotions and total self-absorption with delivering vengeance to those who wronged the main heroine.
Partly the change comes over Shia because of the magical belt she's wearing. If you remember previous books, the belt gave her a much needed edge over supernatural creatures at night, but by day its strength waned.
However, the darkness she absorbs every time she wears that belt is welcomed, so whatever has been happening from the very beginning of Miss Waynest's involvement with vampires and werewolves reached its critical point which broke her and molded her into something new.
Stalking The Others is turning the tables, and Shia becomes a hunter instead of being hunted. The plot is violent, action-packed and gritty with the ending that made me reminisce about Anita and Jean-Claude when it was all still fresh and new.
Not sure what to think of the ending, but it's clear that Jess Haines has quite a few aces up her sleeve, and I can not even predict the direction Shia's life will take from now, but I'm very much looking forward to finding out...
This book picks up straight away from where Deceived By The Others left off with Shia escaping Royce's house and starting on a murderous rampage seeking revenge on Dillon, pack member of the Sunstrikers, who has possibly infected her with Lycanthropy and Chaz, leader of the Sunstrikers and her ex-boyfriend who betrayed her. Shia is all alone with nowhere to go and no money, all she has is her enchanted hunter belt, which gives her superhuman powers and speed, constantly whispering in her ear. She needs to seek retribution before the next full moon which is only 24 days away. We follow her on this journey with a count down of the days until the full moon. It was so excited wondering whether Shia would sprout fur and fangs and I couldn't read fast enough to get the answer.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the story as Shia hunts down her prey but I was not expecting for it to be darker and grittier than the previous books. I certainly wasn't expecting the badass Shia that we get in this instalment and I loved it.
If you liked the earlier books you will not be disappointed and if you like Urban Fantasy I would urge you to try this series. I am going to give Stalking The Others 4 stars. I would have given it 5 but Ms Haines tended to keep giving us the same information over and over and I got a tad fed up with this.Read more ›
