~~~spoiler~~~~Z has had a rough upbringing, her fast reaction/response in the past has worked for her, was unexpected cus she looked so "cute"....so when she finds herself in the gas station, with dudes coming to rob it, unaware of her as of yet, what does the author has her do? Nothing! she recognizes the looters, the danger, etc...her past experience should have her slipping out the back as soon as they pulled up to the tanks. but she waits, watches, still inside, even so, when she sees them more looters( all dudes) drive, get out with ball bats, that's a clue!! still NOTHING! ok, they're hitting at front windows, she's been a thief, experience says, one will go around the back to scope it out. I'm not a thief, never had been but doesn't common sense says to expect one to go around the back to chk that out, so .....
1. React while theres only the one guy
2. React while you have the element of surprise
3. React fast/first cause you have experience doing so in bad situations.
So wouldn't that follow the character pattern the author set out for this H? Well....no , my frustration is because she and some other female authors I"ve read in the past has the H reacting contrary to pattern so they will be rescued by the male H. She acts surprised at the back door, lets dude talk long enough for more guys to round the corner, backs into the store so she's cornered, lets one of them get hands on her! She doesn't get out of the situation, the plot has the other stupid dudes cause an explosion from the gas tanks, she's RESCUED by, wait for it...the male H who picks her semi conscious a#@$ up, carries her away.......Pisses Me Off. Male authors who describe Male main characters have them act according the traits described in THIER plot books so why can't ours? Would Jack Reacher let this happen? Agent Pendergast? Joe Pike? Elvis Cole, etc....I'm only at Chp 9,....then this...I will keep going though but I gotta tell yall, I've turned away from other series because of the same old, same old of so called "kick butt chica" not living up to the hype & continuously getting rescued by MH instead of herself.
Will update further as I continue reading. Sigh.......
If there’s one thing Stacey Marie Brown got right in his novel, it’s the chemistry! She is a pro at creating sizzling conflict between the main characters that starts out as animosity and slowly morphs into attraction.
But there’s more to this novel than just the heat. Brown has cleverly brought in humor and tenderness with the creation of Sprig, the mischievous, strange monkey-sprite. He relieves the tension at times and always seems to appear and disappear at the most inopportune moments. He’s just wonderful!
The fantasy world itself is masterfully created, with plenty of back-story, adventure, danger and reality. The character arcs are perfect, especially since there is no ‘love at first sight’. The attraction is gradual and more realistic. I haven’t been this drawn into a fantasy series in a while and I can’t wait to find out what happens to Ryker, Zoe and Sprig!
Brown does a great job of capturing a world of realistic city life, hard foster realities, and magic all in one messy ball. She tackles hard subjects such as abuse, self-image issues, fighting, ethical choices, death, and weighing the importance of personal interests versus keeping moral codes. Definitely not a fluffy or candy-read type of book. It tackles hard truths, traumatic events, self-doubt, violence, and sexual themes as well. Content warning to readers trying to avoid explicit sex scenes, abuse, torture, or violence in the books they read, as this series does not shy from them. But Brown does a good job of tying things together, explaining motives, mindsets, and not idolizing or presenting perfect or beautiful characters, but rather characters who have beauty and depth because of their flaws and weaknesses. Brown captures the sense of urgency during chaos, stress, intrigue, and confusion when a world can be turned upside down, and the deep felt betrayal of self and others for sometimes believing in things that are too good to be true.
