This set contains four or five books, each very fast-paced, engaging, and easy to read. Also what makes these stories interesting is because each story is written from a different perspective and it's not always the perspective you'd expect. For example, we get perspectives of bear shape shifters or wolf shape shifters or dragons. It's not always your typical new-in-school teenager protagonist.
Each of the individual stories is a romance story and after you've read one or two, you figure out the rhythm and the stories do get a bit predictable after a while. There is definitely a rhythm to them. But overall, I enjoyed them and would recommend this series.
As I continued reading, the complexity of the saga drew me under its spell and kept me enthralled. Yes, that little play on words was intended. Random bits like this, as well as pop culture references pepper this collection. Everything from the Wizard of Oz to Harry Potter, and various other obscure - and not so obscure - references, were fair game to this motley collection of geeks. That alone made this a fun read. Add in interesting characters as well as a story with lots of excitement, twists, and turns and I found myself unable to put it down.
But wait! There is more! I am off to get the next collection. This story has more to tell.
I will point out that these books could use another pass at editing, because that's just something I notice and feel the need to mention when reading. However, the issues did not stop me from enjoying the books.
My overall impression of this series? It’s a fun, quick read. These are paranormal romances where the romance itself is a foregone conclusion. There’s no angst about when or if these characters are going to get together. There isn’t even any real anticipation: you know it’s going to happen, and, once it does, you know it will move a bit of the meta-plot forward.
And there is a meta-plot. There is something going on in this world. It may be happening at this college like a Scooby-Doo mystery, but it is also leaking out into the rest of the world. It is dangerous and compelling, and somehow, these hpplily-ever-after couples are a part of it. It keeps you going from one book to the next.
As an added bonus in this collection, D.R. Perry has included a handful of short stories — more like flash fiction, really — that flesh out these characters a tiny bit. They serve more as character sketches than short stories, but they are interesting, fun addons.
My original impression, developed during book 1 &2 — kind of a “Buffy and the original gang go to college...without the slaying and everyone has abilities but are more angsty about grades than they are about their own "special skills”” kinda vibe mixed with what I have mentally dubbed “the Sweet Valley High thang” — held up all the way through the first five books included in this collection.
Will I continue with this series? Yes. Am I interested in seeing where it goes? Yes. In the end, that is all that really matters.
Full disclosure: I read this collection as an ARC agreement, which means, in a nutshell, I received a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
