Yesterday I finished Pursued Brides of the Kindred 6. While I usually enjoy this series, I felt that this book moved a little slow. Elise is a emotionally broken human. Merrick is a "hybrid" kindred, tall, strong,clever and also emotionally closed. He is willing to help her but everything she does she has to roll it around in her head until she gives me a headache. There were points in the story that I just wanted to tell her to shut up.
I really was looking forward to this novel. The teaser at the end of the last book was intriguing. Merrick releases Elise from a stasis pod and a bond is formed.
The newest nemesis tries to impact this new world. We get caught up with all of the previous books' couples. A new couple is introduced and apparently will be the focus of the next book. I rate this book a 3-3.5* read. Elise is almost childlike in her actions and I grew tired of her. I don't want to read about an immature girl in this type of series. ( I posted this on Goodreads).
I am about 1/3 through Stalking the Others (H&W Investigations). This is the fourth installment in the H&W Investigations series. This is definitely urban fantasy. Shiarra Waybest is a private investigator seeking out a ruthless pack of werewolves headed by her ex-boyfriend, who are wanted for the death of a reporter. She is hiding from her friends, family, an all powerful vampire and the police, who want her for questioning about her possible involvement in his death. This series is progressively growing into a darker, twisted game. She is human but is aided by an ensorcerled weapons belt that whispers sweet killing messages to her in her head. This belt enables her to have super human strength but only between sunset and sunrise. I don't think that I have seen this series mentioned here, but it is fast becoming a dark and angsty book series.
