Here's the thing I loved Obsidian Butterfly when it first came out. At some point I lost the book and hadn't read it for a while. Recently a friend gave me her copy and I eagerly dove in.
However I don't like the story anymore. I find Anita incredibly and painfully stupid in here. She picked a fight with a known serial killer who expressed an interest in dissecting her. She gets in trouble with the local werewolf pack for ignoring customs even though she bullied her way into a position of power with her home pack. She lets a vampire the council won't touch do some weird magic on her.
Really? This is the resident expert on preternatural society? All these lapses in logic killed the enjoyment I once had for this book. Anyone else run into this?
