If there ain't no rest for the wicked, well, there ain't no rest for those who hunt down the wicked, either. Once again, Mac has to solve a crime that has both personal significance and societal ramifications to normal and shifter alike. Like before, the things she doesn't know might kill her, rekindle hostilities between pures and lycans, or worst of all, reveal shifters to normal society. Mac's often frustrated by restrictions on her actions and information--and she runs into the consequences of her subordinates' frustration with her own secrets. Mac being Mac, though, manages to walk that line between the law of the land and the laws of shifter society to bag the bad guys and protect those she loves--and their secrets.
Would have been five stars but for the proofing.
Hopefully we'll get to read more about Mac and the Dallas Pride sooner rather than later.
Editing continues to be an issue with this series.
However, when the worst cannot be avoided must be survived.
Did you see what I did right there? What a lovely, seamless transition, like a Mutual of Omaha commercial on Marlin Perkins' Wild Kingdom show, straight from my wah-wah fest, into the theme of the book! I couldn't have done it better myself!
Which brings me to the cover. I LIKE the cover! Author's name at the top, contrasting color of the font making it POP; the title of the book printed at enough of an angle that it draws your eye, yet not so much that you have to twist your neck to read it, and the series identification printed in a smaller font underneath. And the final text component: bottom of the page, a sort-of symbol of finality, the cold, clear survival statement.
There are four breeds known as 'big cats.' They are, in order of descending size, tiger, lion, jaguar, and leopard. The cat pictured on the cover is a leopard, and MacKenzie is a jaguar. Here's how you can tell the difference: as soon as a big cat starts to eat you, check your map. If you are in South America, it's a jaguar. If you are in Africa or southern Asia, it's a leopard. And that's the best I can do for you. Even looking at the comparison chart, I can't tell. The young lady in the picture MIGHT very well be Mac, if she were going for a run.
As for the content of the book itself? Well, treachery. Police work. Retribution. All of that is good stuff.
Even better, though is that we are moved, inevitably, toward the day when the revelation of shape-shifters living among us will be proclaimed. I am STRONGLY in favor of this plot development. It's a mark of a good writer that they are able to conclude a major plot line, and continue to write. During the years I was a passionate Superman fan, which ended maybe at age 12 or 13, I was tired of him spending all his time trying to keep his identity secret.
Lots of action. Lots of insight into how the shifter community works. Realistic tragedy processed. The job gets done. This is a book with some depth, and it will hold your interest.
Ummmm....minor note. The copy I got, two days after the initial release, would profit from another run-through by a copy-checker. Nothing ever threw me out of the story, and these are the sorts of things that are an easy fix; I didn't deduct any stars from the review, because as far as I know, they are fixed already, since I unjustly sat on the book for six weeks.
I enjoyed this book and the author did a good job of cluing any new reader past events without overwhelming or giving too much repetition to those who had read earlier books in the series It stands alone quote well, but as with any book in series, you will get more out of it if you read the earlier books (just so much history and nuances that cannot be rehashed without boring readers).
We start with Mac being out if town again, this time on assignment dealing with the fallout of book 4. She is called back due to a major character having been killed.. . I think Mac may never leave town again since as soon as she does, something major happens, :)
We then have her and her team investigating to see if the death has anything to do with their ongoing problem, plus there are a few issues with the pride. A very good read other than my one pet peeve about all the shifter books from the author, and that is how the author has them showing submission when in human form. Each book has followed the other naturally with nothing jarring or out of character for them as written so far or the world.
The author promises more stories.
I read it in ebook format and was disappointed by the number of typos and errors in punctuation and capitalization. This can be fixed in electronic format, and I expect it will be.
