    Aside from one major fight sequence, this was a relatively uneventful book It felt like the story ended in largely the same place it began, with one notable exception the love triangle To me, that was the weakest part of the first book and I really wanted that to work itself out quickly It did, sort of, but not in the way I thought it would Or in any way I could even remotely relate to It s kind of of a lovesquareat this point Or a really long line And it looks like there may be prep work to turn it into a pentagon Or possibly an even longer line I don t know There s some kind of geometry involved.We didn t get significantly world building here, but there were a few nice touches Several characters and relationships were fleshed out a bit, a new potential conflict or three were introduced, pack dynamics were expanded upon loved all of the pack stuff , and a number of people are going to see large increases in their auto insurance deductibles There were also a lot quips and quirky references, some of which made me laugh out loud Not everything was perfect, though While Nita s character didn t get much time, she felt really inconsistent when she did show up, as if the authors weren t sure who she was when she wasn t being dour her friendly persona was very generic and seemed to pop up out of nowhere, which didn t feel earned There was a continuity issue It s not the hugest thing in the world, but the first book demonstrated how hellfire worked, explaining in detail and with visual examples that it just keeps burning until you call it back So why was Dakota just shooting it into the sky, at moving objects, stationary objects, sometimes hitting, sometimes missing, and pretty much never calling it back Tennessee should be a big green ball of flames right now Green burny lands Also, if they re going to take the romantic situation in the direction this book indicates, I d like to see how the characters deal with some of the very specific issues that seem almost inevitable I don t need to see it fail, but I need to see an explanation for how it can possibly succeed I just didn t get that here, and it s going to be hard for me to go much farther in the series if those questions remain unanswered view spoiler The hand wavey humans are monogamous but supernaturals aren t argument isn t enough That s a statement, not an explanation Show me that Mira and Raelya are both getting enough out of this, or show me that they aren t Show me how jealousy affects them, or explain why it doesn t Make me believe that every person involved is having their needs met because, right now, it feels than a little abusive to the two on the outer edges hide spoiler

    While I didn t believe it was possible to beat Awakened, Hunted managed it Taking place only a few days after Awakened, Hunted focuses on Dakota s continuing journey to find her place in her new and exciting world She s got a new pack, a boatload of new instincts that run counter to what she s spent her life working with, a wonderful lover and a whole bunch of new problems that keep cropping up I m not going to say too much about the story, but it was REALLY cool The pacing was amazing and I couldn t stop turning the pages to find out what happens next In the end, this story was really touching on many emotional levels family is really important to Dakota in a way that I think a lot of modern authors don t seem to get family isn t always about blood though it can be it s about the people who chose to share your life with, the people you share a bond with, the people you chose to love And, even past that, this book contains one of the most exciting well. I m keeping this spoiler free, so I ll hint a friend of mine said that the first book didn t contain enough external conflict I think he ll find PLENTY of REALLY EXCITING external conflict to sate his desires in this book 3 I can t WAIT for the 3rd one in the series

    The Darksbanes seem to have difficulty building dramatic tension into satisfying climaxes.This is especially the case with their fight scenes, during which the POV character often enters into a passive state in order to recount the actions of allied fighters.Hunted is mainly interesting for the intra pack drama.

    This can best be described as a cosy paranormal novel In my review of the first book in the series I said it had a charm that pulls you in and this is still true, but I also wanted a bit action We get this at the end, but for most of the book we had to put up with the tortuous love triangle with Dakota, Amorie and Raelya I don t mind the love interest, but it did drag on and I found the pontificating by Dakota quite annoying.

    Sequel was just as good as the first, and has me intrigued about the supernatural world Dakota finds herself in.

    My second book by these author and in this series.This book has kind of the middle vibe that a second book in a trilogy, or the second book in a series has The initial excitement of a new world to explore is starting to fade, there are hints of future conflicts, and there s a certain amount of settling into roles universes etc I had that vague idea, at least, while reading this one I m not sure if that actually works here.In terms of action and adventure for the longest period of time, the action involved wrapping up previous life job , moving, preparing for new job While also spotting things that hadn t been spotted before, now that there are these heightened senses There s a kind of slice of life vibe going on, just involving werewolves and the like But then conflict erupts within the pack when Dakota meets the third in command, and conflict erupts outside the pack when a super powerful supernatural like creature attacks Some might find it slow in parts and fast in others, but I liked the pace I liked the deepening characterization of the people around and in Dakota s new wolf pack There s something of an odd dynamic going on in the romance department, though there s a reason tossed in that seems plausible and reasonable Dakota feels a pull towards two different women, one a wolf, one a vampire One she rarely sees, the other she seems to see constantly There were times when I started to lose sight of the appeal of the vampire, then they d be together and it d all rush back I m not wording this right I have a tendency to do that, eh Word things wrong Well, the long and short of it is that this is the second book in a series, so some of the freshness has faded, but there s enough here to make everything exciting and fun to read about, and still leaving a strong desire to continue reading Unfortunately, in terms of continued reading, there s only a short story left to poke at that I ve not yet read There is mention of future books in the works, one even already supposed to have appeared, but it didn t appear in the fall of 2015 So I be sad.Hmms My ability to write reviews appears to be tapering off Bad me Bad December 18 2015

    Can t wait for the next installment Love that this picked up right where the first book left off Dakota has a lot to work through and if significant time had passed I think I might have disconnected with the character There is a good amount of internal turmoil with the love interests in relation to their supernatural statuses Plenty of action, leaves me wanting to know about the world Dakota lives in, for sure Definitely a worthy read Can t wait for
