After Blood Warrior, I was so excited to get my hands on this sequel. Inexplicably I kept putting off reading it. Now that I’ve finished it, I see why. I didn’t care for it as well. I’ll continue with the series but this is a definite bridge installment.
The writing is still very good and it’s a quick read. Kayden is the MAN – still. And now he’s the MAN in capital letters. The action scenes were compelling. I liked being able to keep up with Two Rivers while Alexa was away through Nelly. While not a fan of the changing POV though I was glad to get to know Nelly better. However, I understand we had to have something for Nelly to do in the interim but did she have to follow in Alexa’s footsteps exactly? That didn’t work for me and to add to the lost sense it gave me it was added to by having Alexa’s ‘monster” have her own point of view. Also mis-spellings (wreak instead of wreck) & incorrect homonyms (passed instead of past, etc.) was distracting.
Bottom line this episode didn’t feel as if it furthered the storyline much it seemed to level the playing field by making the story have multiple heroines and ensuring they had the same information.
