Wonderful story, great rating, and great characters and character development. A lot of books out there claim to be similar to Patricia Briggs and the lot but this is one of the first that I feel actually come close with this witty writing and lovable characters. Very excited to read book 2
Good book with complex characters.Good plot line.I hope to see more of the character development.Enjoyed reading it.Looking forward to more.
I very much enjoyed this particular book. It’s storyline was cute, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the characters better.
This is an interesting story that is well-written and well-paced. I found the town and the situation unique. I look forward to reading more books in the series.
The heroine in this book is much more than quirky she’s downright weird! She also is too intelligent and erudite for most readers but I began to appreciate her PHD level banter. The hero was morose and definitely unromantic but brave and protective. This was labeled a paranormal romance but after 247 pages of waiting not even a kiss appeared on the pages. The story was good but mislabeled. Leaving readers with blue b*lls is never good.
The best part of Buroker’s other books have been the quirky main characters and how they each interacted with the universe around them that the author has created. This series promises to be the same, including being (sort of) also interacting with portions of very ordinary reality.Plenty of action for those who need it, and (the promise of) romance for those who need that, but for me the characters are the main event.
