This weekend I am going to attempt to read two of the Pitch Dark Books Dark Days of Summer books. Of course in addition to that I am hoping to create a new header for the blog, clean my house and spend time with my kiddo so we will see how things go.
Anyone else out there reading the books on the list?
One of the best, most original books in werewolf fiction. Bryn, the main character is not a werewolf, but a human who has been raised by werewolves after her family was killed by a lone wolf. She chaffs at the restrictions put forth by the Alpha her daily life is quite chaotic.
Her best friend is a Broadway loving teenage werewolf, and due to the fact she is Pack, she does not get close to other humans her age. It isn’t until she sees Chase, a teenage boy who had been bitten by the same wolf who took her family, that she feels she has found some answers to where she belongs.
Unlike most werewolf fiction Bryn doesn’t turn. Heck she doesn’t even consider it. She knows she has weaknesses as a human and she uses them to her advantage. She doesn’t cave to the pack mind she changes it.
Her best friend Lake is one of the few female werewolves around. This is one of my favorite characters in the book. Saying she loves guns is quite the understatement and is a master of deadpan humor.
While most of the book’s focus is on the relationship between Bryn and Chase, it is not in the teenage sex / angst way. There are some kisses but the meat of the book is Bryn finding the rogue wolf and dealing with the problems it brings her way. VERY good read.
I recently picked up books two and three of this series at a used bookstore, in order to not be completely lost I decided to re-read Grimspace as it had be a year since the last time I read it. I had forgotten how completely awesome this book was.
It starts off with Jax in lockdown following an accident on a ship she was a jumper off. She loses everyone and is pretty torn up about it. Aguirre keeps the description of Sirantha pretty realistic. She is not a drop dead bombshell, she is a very real woman with scars and body issues like the rest of us. Enter March, the space pirate that liberates her from the facility she is being kept in although his motivations are not purely selfless.
Throughout the book Sirantha Jax meets several colorful characters on her journey to discover who is setting her up to take the fall for the accident that she was involved in that happened to kill several political figures and her lover Kai.
Enjoyable read, looking forward to the next book in the series.
Welcome to my neck of the internet woods! Thanks for stopping by.
