Arthur ups the stakes in this book as Riley is thrown headfirst into Starr's twisted world, where women are forced to fight for Starr's entertainment, rape is an everyday occurance and the slightest trangression is punishable in horrific ways. She's surrounded by people she can't trust, all of whom have their own agendas, and her psychic powers are developing in new, sinister ways. Throw in some romantic tension between Riley and part-time lover Quinn the vampire, and you have a non-stop, explosive ride.
Unfortunately, two elements kept me from giving this book five stars. The first is the number of times the phrase "my hormones did an excited jig" cropped up. Although it's been established since book one that werewolves are sexually liberated, easily aroused creatures, I was so sick of reading that line or a variant on it that I could have happily slapped Riley and ordered her to a nunnery. The second is her relationship with Quinn. He's proven time and time again throughout the series that he cannot accept her werewolf lifestyle (read: promiscuity) and constantly spits all over her heritage. It seems wrong to me that an intelligent, strong woman like Riley would put up with his essentially racist attitude and insults.
Overlooking those points, this is a great book and, for me, a great antidote to the latest angst-filled Anita Blake books. Pick up the first two, Full Moon Rising and Kissing Sin, and enjoy. Just watch out for the dancing hormones.
Deshon Starr owns many properties throughout town, some used to disguise the activities of the scientist's labs in which gene pool dabbling is the first order of business. To amuse his own people and visiting investors, Starr regularly puts out a display of hookers, also putting the hardier of the bunch into his own fighting arena with his gene-spliced creations. This is the entry point for Riley, a hardly recognizable version of Riley once her appearance, voice and demeanour have undergone some serious disguising. The delicious vampire Quinn is a concern as he continues on his own path of distracting Riley in many different manners from the task at hand. A werewolf is victim to many desires and Riley is going to have to try very hard to keep a lid on them all in order to get the job done.
Set in an alternate Melbourne after dark, Riley Jenson's world of werewolves, vampires and other shape shifting creatures is brilliantly alive with its throbbing gang-like subculture.Read more ›
