Worth the wait!!! I Highly recommend ALL the books in this series!!

I fell in love with the Big Bad Wolf series instantly when I read the first book and I read the next 2 within as many days... I couldn't get enough!! The characters, the plot, the twists all took you on an emotional roller coaster ride that just got better and better with each book!!
So when the release date was announced for this book I was sitting on the edge of my seat all day waiting patiently for B&N to make it available for download...and I waited... and waited...and waited some more (not so patiently) until it was FINALLY available 5 days later. Not sure what the glitch was with B&N :(
Anyway, I downloaded it as soon as it was released and read it in one (red-eyed) sitting. I couldn't put it down and as it was with the others, this book did not disappoint!!
Each book centers around a different set of main characters but intertwines the previous books characters into the storyline so you could see how their stories progressed...they also gave you a little backstory for the next books characters without being repetitive so it is better to read these books in sequence.
HKW has definitely done it again and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!! Hopefully it some more ridiculously sexy Alpha wolves ;)

Unfocuse, Cliche-filled Mess

When it comes to romance novels, The Hunt is average. You've got your basic heroine - strong, beautiful and sexy - who finds the hero - gorgeously muscled and hunky - and of course he falls desperately in love with said heroine because they "are fated to be with each other" and she, against her better judgment, finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. It's all so very cliché. I wish for just once the heroine would be a slightly over weigh and the hero wouldn't look like a GQ model. Also the love scenes were tepid at best, and at worst felt more like Killough was describing a rape than a love scene.

The supernatural aspects of the book are a mish-mash of everything from werewolves to vampires to warlocks. The characters were, to put it mildly, a little jumbled. It's like Killough couldn't decide which direction to go in, so she just threw a little bit of everything in the pot, gave it a good stir, a wish and a prayer, and shipped it off to the editors.

They were running a sale on Killough's ebooks, and I see now why - I'm also sorry to say that I went ahead and bought three of them - if the other two are as much of a mess as this one, then it's been a colossal waste of money!

    Disappointing

    This story just didn't catch my interest. I kept reading, though, hoping I would get caught up in the storyline or maybe relate to the characters enough to want to cheer them on. It was like watching a movie and waiting for the good part to begin, but it never does. Plus, I had formatting issues on my Nook. The page numbers were wrong so my copy says that there are 796 pages or something in the book when there aren't and it bothered me that chapters didn't begin on a new page.
