Counterfeit Magic (Review)
reviews / December 18, 2014

This is probably my least favourite of the novellas in this series. The mystery behind the fight club is what drew me in – it just seemed interesting. Getting to see Savannah fighting in the ring was really the highlight, I think. It was fun watching her use her spells, and to see a bit of the clash between her hiding some of her magic and contacts, even while the reader knows that her “dark” side isn’t really a secret to Paige.

Living With the Dead (Review)
reviews / December 17, 2014

I had trouble with this book in the beginning. The story is told from multiple points of view – Robyn, Adele, Hope, and Finn – and three of those narrators are characters that are new to the series. Because of that, I had a bit of trouble empathizing with any of them in the beginning besides Hope (and, through her eyes, Karl). Everyone else was just … there.

Frostbitten (Review)
reviews / December 17, 2014

I was really excited to get back to Elena as a narrator in this novel. I’ve actually come to really like the other narrators in the series – particularly Eve and Hope – but there’s something about Elena and the werewolves that I’ve missed.

Frostbitten is a mix of a lot of things: part mystery, part Shifter mythology, part Pack politics, and part personal struggle.

Personal Demon (Review)
reviews / December 17, 2014

I hadn’t really loved the half-demon characters in the series so far, but Hope turns out to be the exception. I wish I had read Chaotic before I read this one – I kind of skipped the novella by accident – so make sure you do that first if you’re going to read Personal Demon. So many things will make more sense to you than they did to me.
