The endearing quirkiness was gone, and what had originally made Dakota so likable became infuriating. She remained quirky and full of mistakes, but this time, they weren't forgivable, if only for the fact that she had not learned from past experiences.
I really wish the authors would have taken the time to actually develop Dakota, not magnify her flaws to the point of annoyance. And the climax? So unoriginal. Yet again, her salvation comes in in the form of her curse. Much like every other time in the book. So, so disappointing
I loved the story it's a wonderfull tale, with some interesting plot twists. I like the slight attempt at polyamorie that's in there which is a very nice change from the norm. The charictars are being fleshed out more and more and I can really start picturing them with their personalities. The only negative I can really point out is that all the "good" characters seem to be bending over backwards to please the main character. It's a bit overpoweringly helpfull and happy go lucky.
It's good to have Dakota back. I've missed her geekiness, her determination, and her good-guy instincts, and they're all in place as she faces her biggest threat yet and learns something about herself. I really missed Ralof and the pack being a key presence (especially Andrei, the big lug), but having some other old favorites return nearly makes up for it.
It's obvious that Shei's extended break did give her a chance to grow as a writer. She introduces several new characters in this book, and they're vivid and instantly memorable. The dialogue is sharp, the jokes work, and the plotting is solid. And the spooky and frightening bits are as creepy as intended.
Overall, it's another worthy and entertaining addition to Dakota's story. Looking forward to many more!
