While I normally enjoy all of Madeline Baker's books and i really liked Reckless Heart, I was disappointed in this one. I loved reading about Hannah and Shadow again and her family, the first part of the book was very good. But I have to say the teaser on the back is misleading, for it presents a conflict that really isn't there. hannah never cares for Josh and in fact wants nothing more than to get away from him, so there really is no choice to be made between the two men--she loves and will always choose Shadow. But it was the ending of this book that I felt was rushed and not well planned out. The Josh-captures-Hannah-and-Shadow-rescue theme has been used so many times it's getting to be ridiculous. I mean, if Hannah is this resourceful and brave woman, then she should have bashed Berdeen over the head with a frying pan or something, not gone meekly along with him! Shadow should have taught her a few self-defense moves too, considering the amount of danger they always seem to get into. The other thing I didn't like was the Hawk romance tacked onto the end of the book. Don't get me wrong, I love Hawk and want to read more about him, but I really think he deserves his own book, not fifty pages. You couldn't get a real sense of Victoria either--she seemed like a shallow copy of Hannah and I didn't see why Hawk preferred her over another woman. personally I would have wanted him to marry some girl who was a rebel like he was, maybe another half-blood who could ride and shoot like a man.You know, a romance with sparks and fire. Victoria just doesn't strike me as his type from the way she's presented. And Hawk needs his own book, especially since Mary and Blackie got their own books. OK for summer reading, but not one of my favorites.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
