Amy Lane is on a hot streak with this amazing original series. The story reminds me of the HBO series "True Blood" (I haven't read the books yet) - but it is a much more complex world with a detailed and very real-feeling mytholoy. Bravo Ms. Lane!! I can't wait to read book 3.

Absolutely loved this series and I am eagerly awaiting the next book. If you like paranormal romance you will enjoy these. I fell in love with the characters. They are genuine and warm and their ability to accept and love one another is unique. I could not put them down! They are worth the price you pay IMO. They are keepers for your library and a re-read series.

I can't say enough about this second book of the Little Goddess Series. I dreamt about the characters, began to truly care for them. It's better than any episodic TV drama that keeps you wanting more. The emotion is so well ingrained in Amy Lane's writing, you feel real concern for Corey, Green and all of Green's people you 'I' want to be there, be part of the wonderful family that knows how to love, learns how to grieve and truly takes care of it's own. The genuine selflessness of the characters, their love of each other and sensual display of such goes so far beyond gender and is written with such tenderness, it cannot be compared. I want more!

This is the second story to the Little Goddess Series. Wounded can be read on its own, but you won¿t want to miss how it all started with Vulnerable. Cory leaves Green¿s Hill, to go back to school. She is wallowing in her grief for her beloved Adrian, which leaves her wide open to be wounded. A were creature befriends her then steals her `firsts¿. Meaning all of her first memories surrounding her love for Adrian, her first kiss, her first time she made love, all of it. She wants them back! Green loves Cory and would be her one and only, but he is a sidhe that heals through the power of touch and sex he can¿t be there for her at all times. Cory¿s power is fueled by emotion and it¿s imperative that Cory find another true love to step in when Green cannot be there for her. It¿s the only way to keep her healthy. Green lets her go, thinking she needs to be away from him to come to terms with Adrian¿s death and to find another lover, but Green soon realizes he made a mistake in sending her away from the hill. Braken is a sidhe who can call blood at will. He and Cory butt heads more times than not, but the attraction is obvious. He knows they are destined to become lovers, but he never expected it to be forced upon them because of necessity. Nicky is an Avian were-creature. When they mate, it is for a lifetime. Rejection from this mate could mean his death. When Nicky realizes he¿s chosen the wrong leader to follow, he will do anything to make things right again, but he never thought it would cause him to be bounded to two people who are not in love with him. When Cory is attacked, Green and others from the hill come to her aid. They set out to recover her lost memories, but stumble upon more than they bargained for. Together they uncover the plot that sent Adrian¿s murderer to Green¿s Hill and they come face to face with the being who feeds off other¿s first memories for power. Green¿s past comes back to haunt him and he fears it may change the way his people perceive him. Ms. Lane¿s has created memorable characters that you will fall in love with. You will feel their heart wrenching grief, their genuine selflessness, and their undying devotion. You will learn more about the characters you came to cherish in Vulnerable, and you will find her new characters irresistible. At times, the sex is erotic, graphic and goes beyond gender, but it is beautifully told and is essential to the story. The emotional depth makes this tale realistic. You¿ll feel welcomed into Green¿s world upon the hill.

This book is the sequel to 'Vulnerable', and although I loved the first book, the sequel was my favorite. This series has me addicted and avidly awaiting more. I was entranced by the story, and truly touched by the characters growth and moved by their perseverance. I strongly recommend this series!

I reviewed Vulnerable and started immediately reading Book 2 of the Little Goddess Series, Amy Lanes Wounded. The title tells us if you have read Vulnerable (and it is a must before Wounded) to see how Cory and Green deal with the death of their Beloved and they truly are WOUNDED...The Death of a close person, to most of us, is a series of feelings we must go thru before we can make peace. Unfortunately Cory and Green try to do this alone, which nearly destroys them. Green sends Cory off to College in San Francisco, and only sees her on weekends. You know how that is..You never get too close on these trips...Just close enough. This book finally reveals how "WOUNDED" these two are..Title dead on...They are wounded.. This book is all about love and healing.I love the reference to King Arthur and Lancelot and Guenivere...Enter Bracken...Please read this book and take the ride Amy Lane is taking us on...I've cried a lake in book 1 a river in book 2. Exciting storyline to keep your interest, and I am willing to look to book 3 with hope and love...or maybe book 4 (three might be an ocean) you never know with Amy

Cory Kirkpatrick, heroine of 'Vulnerable', returns in this second, more assured novel by Amy Lane. When 'Vulnerable' ended, Cory, devastated by the loss of her first lover, Adrian, had decided to leave Green's hill and go to school in San Francisco. She hoped that some time, and just the act of making the decision alone would help her shake the terrible grief. When 'Wounded' opens, Green is desperately worried for her--she seems to have gotten weaker and more mired in desolation than she had been when Adrian first died, and Green is positive that the decision to let her go was the wrong one for both of them. This feeling is confirmed when Cory is attacked, and Cory's homesickness, revealed at their reunion at the hospital, is terrible and soul destroying on it's own. But she can't go home yet--her attacker has not just injured her (which Green can cure) but he's stolen the memories of her 'firsts'--and all of Cory's first memories of love are wrapped around Adrian. In their quest to recover Cory's memories, they discover not only a quiet war between a secretive species of were-creature and the rest of San Francisco's 'Goddess Get' but also the trigger that shot Adrian's killer straight to Green's hill. We learn more about Green's past--and how the serenity that keeps Cory grounded is hard won--as well as a lot more about Cory's power. If she's fueled by emotion, and Green isn't available to her exclusively, she needs another true love to keep her healthy, whole, and sane. All in all, 'Wounded' is more assured and finely crafted than 'Vulnerable', but the emotional sincerity--and our heroine's cranky appeal--is still powerful and winning.
