Now the one thing that I hate about all these books... Every girl goes through her shift on her 17th birthday full moon, she will die unless she has a mate.... at 17??? And what if that guy is 15 or 16? No that doesn't happen they are usually always older then the girl and knows before the girls know that she is the true mate. Then without the girl's consent they tattoo her name on their backs as a symbol of her being a true mate. Bleck! I am all for alphas... I love the thought of mates and sometimes a dominant male can be sexy. However at 17 I just picture myself watching anime, reading and can't imagine being mature enough to handle a 'true mate' let alone a dominant one. I really enjoyed that Brittany wasn't a shifter, I love that so far things have been a little different from the norm, but I really want to see this series evolve into having a girl shift by herself (without dying of course).
However.... this is a cute book, an especially cute paranormal one. Hawthorne keeps expanding her Shifters' world and putting new enemies in their paths. This ensures that we won't get too bored over time. Just make the fight scenes a little more detailed and gory! I mean show more blood. All in all I thought Daniel was a little too bossy, but Hayden certainly was no push over. Think of Daniel's back story, it makes perfect sense that he is the way he is. Hayden I'm sure will grow up more and be able to push right back. Now I'm currently looking for news about the Fifth one which I assume will be about Seth.
The Good: Rachel Hawthorne did another fantastic job of showing us the love and danger in the Dark Guardian's world. Though each of her novels are similar, they are also surprisingly unique. Hayden provided us with new look on the werewolf community just as the other main characters did in previous books. I enjoyed the suspense that kept building throughout the book. And Hawthorne's characters, both main and minor, have such glowing, refreshing personalities. The best part about her novel is the romance. She combines the perfect balance of conflict and fluffiness to give us a dynamic, interesting story.
The Bad: This novel, like the others, leaves a lot to be desired in the conflict aspect. When the fighting scenes come around they are a bit uneventful and seem to be over very quickly. Hawthorne also makes decisions for her characters that I find unrealistic, in spite of the paranormal aspect.
