If you all recall, I wasn't very fond of Ash in the beginning of the series. I thought he was an arrogant ass, but this book shows a side of him that you hoped he held, and were thrilled to see. By the end of the book, I was so in love with the man. He ended up being devoted, and brought to his knees by his "little witch".
I think that the drama that unfolded in this book wasn't as surprising because I thought some of Bryn's coven was shady.
This one is a little harder for me to review because, yes, it was another great read, and actually I think it was my favorite, I don't want to give anything crucial away. So what I'll do is add a couple excerpts that I liked, and explain why I chose them.
The first excerpt:
"She couldn't help but smile as she looked at that beautiful and smug face. She'd missed seeing it every day, but in this past week she'd been reminded of what a danger Ash was to her; she knew better than to spend any extra time with him, even if that was all she wanted.
"I don't know Ash; your date is headed this way."
Ash turned to where Bryn could only see his profile; he smiled as Blair approached and Bryn used that moment to make her escape."
The reason this part is important is because it shows Bryn's feeling without really saying then. Also shows her fear of those feelings. I think just about everyone at some point in their lives can relate to this feeling. The fear, nerves, and need to run.
The second excerpt:
"It was the first time in six months that they'd been around each other, but she kept her distance. And this past week on the island as they rehearsed and prepared for the wedding she had avoided him, always keeping a good ten feet between them, and if she could, at least two people. Ash was not one who lacked confidence, but Bryn was throwing him off."
A man's vulnerability and insecurity, need I say more? For most of the scenes of Ash in the books, he is always confident and almost cocky, here he shows more and lets you really see a different side of him, and all it took was one Witch. It shows that every man has a soft side even if he never allows others to see it, until that one person makes him want to.
The final excerpt:
"What is she doing here?" Ash muttered, a light excitement infusing his body.
"Whatever she's here for, it isn't good." Tavian narrowed his eyes.
"Why would say that?" Rachel asked.
"Because we can all smell it luv. Something's got her good and scared," Dante said gravely.
"I got this," Ash said as he caught Bryn's gaze and headed towards her.
This one I just liked. More of the cocky Ash coming out to play, but not in an annoying way. He was just as surprised to see Bryn as she was him. It's a great way to bring them back together.
Like the others I highly recommend this whole series, you're going to love Ash and Bryn's story.
Bryn, the youngest witch of her coven and daughter of its leader, is the central character of this book. It all starts when she believes she's being chased by a mysterious werewolf and she runs to Maldera Springs hoping to find help. She finds it, and more, when Ash promises to protect her. Unbeknownst to either of them, there's more to the strange werewolf and his mission than they could have ever imagined, and it will change them both forever.
I must say I was particularly excited to read this one, as it finally formally introduces the werewolves of the series. Just as I expected, Miss McMinimy does not disappoint with her portrayal of the lunar creatures. Although, that excitement quickly became shock as the story unfolded and an atrocious act is committed by the wolves towards Bryn. I honestly could not believe it had happened, and the aftermath drives the story into a whole new level of dramatic. I applaud the author in being able to create such a shocking and passionate entry into what has become one of my favorite series around. Congrats Magen, you've hooked me!
Starting with a wonderful wedding and quickly picking up a new love story. This story follows Bryn who is quickly attacked by a werewolf and Ash who is the last Vampire around without prior engagements.
Ash decides to become Bryn's protector and takes her to the local werewolves to find out why they are after her.
The relationships are engaging and everything is passionate and engaging while being tactful. There is an encounter with violence and violation that is shocking but done in a way that does not make you squeamish.
Overall this story pulls together more of characters and their relationships while building on the ones you already know about. This story shows normal everyday emotions and how detrimental or helpful they can be to everyone around you.
