So, now that I’ve shown you the goodies, it’s my turn… I am now going to give you My Review:
First, I will start with- MS NANCY I AM SO MAD AT YOU!!! HOW DARE YOU!!! Ummm, how dare you end it like that! I mean seriously, I about jumped up when it ended… ANNNND then I immediately saw that lovely little note you put in the back and the wonderful moment when you put my name in the acknowledgments! *sigh* so I can’t be mad at you 🙂 I will always call you a friend and one day, even if we can’t be neighbors, I will figure out how to meet you… maybe a little trip to New Orleans and we will drink until our hear’t content… OR until we can’t walk anymore hahahaha that’ll probably be the more likely outcome 😛 You are a wonderful addition in my life 🙂 Ok, now to my serious review 🙂 LOL
Let me count the reasons on why I am OVER THE HILL IN LOVE with this series… 1. A completely awesome, kick ass heroine, who has one of the most impressive attitudes. I will get to that in a moment. 2. Extremely HAWT pieces of male meat EVERYWHERE! I mean, Drake, Daniel, Gage, the 5 Brothers… seriously, gimme some love here boys! 3. There is some MAJOR family drama… If you think your family is crazy, you should meet her’s. 4. The world building of how the Centaurs and their laws and loop holes are fascinating to me. 5. Lastly, but not least, I ALMOST got my happy ending LOL! Though I know there will be 5 books (hence my 5 reasons), I finally get something I wanted since the beginning- no I will not go telling you what that is because you need to read this series on you own 🙂
I am extremely proud of Camille and her character growth. She is way more cautious than she used to be, and though she is scared, she is not backing down. She finds some unlikely allies, and she also makes Drake not be so… depressing- for lack of a better word. She has matured in her decision making and she’s also realizing that her powers are useful, so use them. I’m also so glad, that when she had the options to hide, she did when it was necessary and in the end, she knows that hiding will not always be the right choice, and when given the option to hide for good, she won’t. Her determination to make the world a better place for centaurs has completely impressed me. Honey, if I lived in your world, I could be your crazy Cajun sidekick 🙂
Let’s talk about all the HAWT male pieces for a moment. Drake surprised me, with some of his not so optimistic attitude, however when he finally finds his “switch” (yeah that’s what I’ll call it *wink*) he finally realizes that some sacrifices are worth it, even if in the moment it seems unbearable, there’s always a way 🙂 I of course love his chivalry and I love that even when it kills him, he gives Cami space. Very cool! Daniel is still a major favorite… HEY DANIEL, I’m available :)… He is hilarious, and he’s not so tough, even if he pretends really well. I am reaaaaally hoping he gets then ending I hope he gets. He’s the best friend anyone could ask for. YAY for Team Daniel… Brent is…. ugh. I actually wanna dislike him. He makes me mad a lot, and then he does something so nice, and some comforting, and damnit, I love him again. I am SERIOUSLY happy with what he chose in that particular “decision”. 🙂 As for the other brothers, I am very much hoping to see more.
There was so much action. I mean, let’s get attacked here, and chased here, and almost strangled here, and let’s try not to die here. Yeah, seriously, it’s that awesome. And I am very much in happiness with the humor that strikes in every once in a while. And the drama, I mean I am seriously hoping that mama Z dies a really terribly, torturous, mean death, which will fit her. Dear Ms Nancy, hear my plea on that one. I also hope Cameron doesn’t become permanently stuck in his current situation. Please fix this. It’s heartbreaking. And to the new characters, Jessica and Katherine. Jess is the coolest kid. I really like her, but I swear, if she goes back to her crazy family, I will personally jump into the book and kick her ass myself! Open your eyes, and maybe you’ll find exactly what you were looking for is in front of your face. As for her character, I absolutely love her attitude. And Katherine… She is a whole new creature which is soooo cool. I am hoping to learn even more about that, and I am extra happy with her “situation” and hope it continues to work out 🙂
Ok, enough with the characters. Let me talk about the writing for just a minute. Think if you were a complete chocolate addict, and someone gave you a room full of every chocolate know to man…. You will never leave this room, it has everything you could ever want. It’s yummy, and soft, yet hard, and delicious, and sometime bitter, and overall, the best tasting thing that will ever touch your tongue… Yep, I just used an entire paragraph comparing the writing to chocolate… I am obsessed and I will not let go. My secret is I actually hate chocolate-yes I am the devil spawn- but I know how most people love it, and I happen to be obsessed with cinnamon rolls and bacon LOL so it’s that level to me. I am completely invested in every single character. I have fallen in love with the two main characters, and I have grown to hate the bad guys-and ladies- and I am completely engrossed in what will happen. It’s like a beautiful disaster. It’s such a treasure to love a story this much. It’s only book 5, and though I am DYING to know how it will end, I’m already crying thinking about the fact that it’s going to end. *sad face* So, without further ado, do you have any more questions as to why you aren’t reading this series yet? Seriously, go get them RIGHT NOW! I have a few moments to wait. 🙂 6 MIRACULOUSLY DISASTROUS MAGNIFICENT PAWS! Yep, this is one of those rare 6 PAW moments.
I now want to say a very special THANK YOU to Ms. Nancy, who sends me special messages and emails that give me surprise ARCs and an even more special surprise note in the back of the books. I will be lost when this series ends, so I hope you’re prepared for me to stalk you forever! 🙂 And to SupaGurl book tours who put on this release day blitz to help spread the world about this magnificent author! Good Luck on entering the giveaway! Happy reading and Later gators!
*I will also leave you with this… Blood Debt (book 1) kindle edition was free yesterday when I check on Amazon HERE, but double check, as I don’t know if that price will stay 🙂
