We are back to the pack!
First thing we learn? Elena and Clay are PREGNANT. That’s a whole new thing. Since there has not been a known female werewolf besides Elena, there has never been a child with two people who have the blood of the wolves. Now there are. Elena doesn’t know if she is able to actually carry a child to term, but they are going to find out because she is big and pregnant.
And Clay and Jeremy are crazy careful about everything. Need help carrying a chair to the patio? Don’t worry Elena, I’ll do it. Don’t want you to hurt yourself. Need help getting up? Here’s my hand, no need to put too much strain on yourself.
You can’t really blame them though. They don’t know what they need to do or how to do it or what to expect. But you can believe it when I say that Elena is very stir crazy and is itching for something more than the four walls around her and a run on the grounds.
So when a “friendly” Houdini half-demon (reference the second book people) calls with a job that only a werewolf can do, Elena is quick to convince her pack that they can do it easily with nothing to worry about.
There’s something to worry about.
Bugs. Rats. Zombies (wuuuut? Guess you can reference the third book for that one. Except it is a different kind. Yes, kind…. ugh). Sorcerers. Vampires. Necromancers. Witches. Wolves. Legend serial killers.
That’s right. you get everything. Which, honestly, is why it is four stars instead of five.
I miss the part were the werewolves weren’t fully emerged in the supernatural world. I thought they liked to keep their distance. I mean, I know they kind of got sucked into this and such and they now have friends in the supernatural world and stuff; but I truly don’t like them having to deal with other things outside of that. This whole book seemed to be more up Paige’s alley instead of Elena’s which is why I didn’t give it a five star as much as I wanted to.
Don’t you dare get me wrong, this is still a marvelous book. Kelley Armstrong hasn’t lost her touch at all and it will keep you interested and laughing and sitting on the edge of your seat, I just feel as if it would have played better if it was more of a witch book instead of a wolf book.
The writing is still the best thing. The story is still at its peak. It still fits so well with the rest of the series that I full-heartedly love.
Now I believe the next book is a Jaime book and that, my friends, is something I have been dying for. She deserves her own book by all means.
