The author did a great job of putting me in Nat's head. I got it. I understood why she was the way she was, and why she wasn't a kick butt take names kind of gal. And I lIKED it, how weird is that? I'm rooting for her growth. I dont necessarily want her to become Kate Daniels, but I do want her to feel more empowered and in control.
The love triangle was ok, but I'm clearly going to be in the Nick camp. Thorn had his shot, and has done nothing to indicate he deserves another. She needs to move on. Hopefully in the next book she'll figure that out.
The writing was not weak, by any means. Good plot, a little of Harry Dresden meets Stephanie Plum. However, definitely more skill needs to be developed to be able to mature and sustain this series. That said I will add the next to my wish list so I'll know when it's available. It's been a long time since I've done that. I'm looking forward to seeing if this author can hit a home run. I think she can!
Nat is a werewolf with OCD and a broken heart. Five years ago, her lover Thorn left without a world. Although she has always had hoarding issues, she managed them successfully until his rejection. Now five years later, she is an outcast from the pack (including most of her family), lonely and buying Christmas decorations by the truck load. Her life is plodding along when suddenly, Thorn reappears, she starts going to therapy again and a rival wolfpack starts targeting her.
I liked Nat in the beginning. The author did a great job at making me understand her compulsion and why things were so difficult for her. I understood why she doubted herself, her lack of confidence and shame at her illness. I even understood why she held on to the memory of Thorn. But after a while, I just couldn't take it anymore. She turned from vulnerable, lonely young woman into a doormat. I cannot abide a heroine that routinely lets people (including children) walk all over her. I kept waiting for her to tell people off. Since she was an outcast anyway, why not go for broke and speak your mind?
Thorn was also problematic for me. He was not the dreamboat that she had built up in her mind. All I saw was a selfish guy who wanted Nat, but didn't want her enough to claim her, consequences be damned.Read more ›
When the Long Island pack tries to move in and take over Nat's former pack things get even worse. The alpha of that pack has targeted Nat for reasons unknown to her. She feels isolated and alone. But she has decided to return to therapy to see if she can get her "collecting" under control. There she meets Nick who is a White Wizard who has the same sort of OCD she has. Nick comes to her rescue a few times when she is threatened. Nat also makes a friend in Quentin who is a necromancer who works as a janitor at the same antique store where Nat works. Their first - and only - date was funny in a creepy way.
Nat is also supported when her best friend Aggie comes to visit. Aggie is running away from her father and an arranged marriage. She is a high status werewolf who has an eating disorder. She and Nat became friends when both were sent to a camp for troubled werewolves.
This was an entertaining and unusual urban fantasy story. I really came to like Nat and look forward to reading the sequel to this book. I am eager to see how the relationship with Thorn and with Nick work out.
