I feel like this was probably the best ending this series could have had.
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.
The first time that Jaime appeared in an earlier book, I wasn’t sure how I felt about her. She was a bit ditzy, and seemed to use her supernatural powers mostly to make money. But by the time I got to this book, I’d started to sort of like her.
No Humans Involved was probably the book in the series that I found the creepiest so far.
Up until this book, the character of Eve was completely off-screen. Anything we knew about her was from the memories of other characters. So it was nice to get a chance to get to know her in her own words, and to open up another side of the series, to see a character who isn’t “just” plain old “good”.
For really the first time in a while, this book brings the werewolf pack back into the thick of things. But what I think Armstrong did really well was integrated the werewolves in with the other characters that have taken centre stage the last few books, bringing them together to sort things out as a group.
