That said, I was looking forward to some interesting twists!
Even though, I was initially intimidated by the sheer length of Wild Hunt (486 pages), I can tell you that the story-line is fast-paced and an easy read. As other have said, the story arc does get bogged down in places, but I found this book, overall, to be an enjoyable read with enough action and erotic steam to keep things interesting.
Though I realize that this is Monica's first book - and overall, I enjoyed it - the reason why I gave it three stars is two-fold:
First, there were some interesting characters that were introduced so briefly (Rachel, for one), that the reader isn't given much of chance to get to know them or even care about them, so they become almost stereotypes or caricatures, due to minimal character development. A few times, I found myself wondering why certain people were introduced into the story who seemed entirely unnecessary to furthering the plot in any way, and that was a bit disconcerting.
Secondly, the conclusion of this exciting, action-packed tale seemed rushed and a bit confusing to follow. Occurring the last 20 pages or so, the conclusion was sudden enough to be somewhat jarring. The build-up of tension was well-done, and the pacing of action in the story was good...and then, the brakes get slammed down upon entirely too soon.
Hopefully there will be more to come from Monica Baker.
I liked how this story did provide some fresh and unique twists in this Norse-inspired erotic tale. So if you like a bit of action and a lot of erotic tension in your romance novels, then I'd suggest this book.
The Wild Hunt book, from Monica Baker, is pretty dynamic.
The story progress fast, with time advancing as needed by the story.
At the start I couldnt figure the exact "flavor" of the book, but suddenly it became clear that I liked it.
Lots of sensuality, and generous usage of mythology makes this a very interesting work.
Dont read if you are a prude. Some parts can be very hot.
I am waiting for the next books from this author.
The erotic scenes were hot and done well.
I like the author's take on the old Norse gods, especially Loki.
I'm not giving it 5 stars, as I think the book needs another round of proofreading; the errors disturbed my joy of reading the story.
This book caught my eyes with its interesting premise. I adore mythology and love to read them. Wild Hunt didn't disappoint in that area, although, I found a few of the gods lacking in both accuracy and personality.
Over all it was a good book, the sex scenes were well done and not too descriptive (as some other novels out there). The first 30% of the book is really backstory to the rest of the novel, but after Miriam runs into to Luke aka Loki after she has an established life, that is where the story takes off.
Here are the two reasons I gave three stars instead of four: There were times when I couldn't believe Miriam's reactions to things or her thought processes and her personality seemed really flat at times. Also, the story is paced well, but there were times when Character A would say something to Character B and then the scene would move on without Character B's reaction. They just disappear from the scene. That happened a few times and it left me confused.
