This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 25, carol. Tolerable, but doubtful if I’ll ever pick up the other books in the series. This is actually book three in a series, but it seemed to stand by itself. Although it referenced a situation from an earlier book twice or so, and the ex-boyfriend makes an appearance, the only thing that might be said to suffer is the world view.
Apparently there is magic in the world now, as Sophie’s mom is a witch, and there are were-animals, as reference is made to a were-cat late in the text. But most people don’t Tolerable, but doubtful if I’ll ever pick up the other books in the series.
Leaded most people don’t know anything about them, so magic must be in the closet still. I don’t see how, as Sophie seems fairly indiscreet, as her “best friend” knows about being a were and her main goal is to become one. Additionally, midway through the book, her ex- becomes aware of weres as well, and Sophie outs the werecat to both of them. Very surprising since she tells Lindsey, “if the wrong people find out about me They might kill me or stick me in a cage.
I’m not much of a paranormal fan, and I’m sensing a disturbing trend in authors focusing on sexual incidents in lieu of emotional development. We see very little depth in the relationship between Sophie and Mark, except for heated sexual exchanges, flirting over the phone and one dinner. Yes, he’s “hot,” but this is the emotional point she’s at after breaking up with her almost-fiance? Didn’t seem plausible, but if it was, macknerney a person I don’t care much to know.
Sophie’s interests in both Mark and Tom seem to be largely sexual, Health’s partly nostalgic, and it’s only midway through that more of an emotional attachment starts to develop with Tom. Sadly, leaeer emotional relationship with Lindsey, her “best friend” is also lacking as well.
Lindsey is begging Sophie to make her into a werewolf, and Sophie refuses. The reason for Sophie’s reluctance that seems to do with self-loathing, but really aren’t well explored on either part. Lindsey show up for the occasional brainstorm and to bring Health back into the picture, but I’m not feeling the friendliness between them, unlike the female friendships in Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland series.
Surprisingly, the challenge of figuring out the real killer is a good mystery. Not particularly good or tension building in the process of solving, but in the final solution. Most of the tension comes from the threat of her father’s fixed trial. Sophie makes attempts at trying to solve the mystery, but ends up mostly providing the emotional leverage to involve other people in helping her. The final solution had an unexpected twist that made a great deal of sense jaren being too obvious. Thd when you can’t find any better chocolate.
I picked up the first book in the series by random, and immediately got drawn into mzcinerney series. I went right back out and bought the second book of the series. After both were finished, I hated that I had to wait the rest of the year for this book to be released.
Then it was released, and I sat down and read this book in a matter of hours. The only thing I really I don’t love is that, since this book there hasn’t been any mention of book four. I really want to know what happens with Sophie next! I love the flavor this werewolf series has. Sophie Garou, the loner woman of a psychic and a werewolf. She grew up with her mother the Psychic and has never met her father until this book.
So, since she hasn’t grown up in a werewolf environment, she has been lacking with that side of herself. She tends to be more human, and less wolf.
But this time around she is more open to her wolf, and finally gets some history of her father and herself. One thing I loved about this series the most, is that you don’t get weighed down with the rules of the pack, like in most werewolf series. Since Sophie hasn’t grown up with werewolves, she also has thr learn adn grow, and we get to do what with her.
Sophie has a natural talent of shielding herself and that has made her to live right under the noses of the Houston pack of werewolves for most of her life. Which is good in one way, and not so good in another. Now discovered, she’s not pushed into a world so quickly, she doesn’t know how to get out of it, and probably won’t be able to.
With his death imminent in days, Sophie must rely on the help of some good friends to help save him. Sophie’s friends are great. He’s mysterious and dangerous, and down right yummy! I just wonder if he’ll stick around? Sophie also sets out to find what her boyfriend is. There are so many unanswered questions Why did Sophie keep the ring? It’s bound to happen.
I just wonder who will be challenging.
What will happen with demon-prince and our heroine? Will be bring her even further down the dark side of his affections? I just thf this series. Sophie Garou and her love macineeney are pure electricity.
I cannot wait for the next book, so I can say goodbye to reality and get into Sophie’s world again. You won’t be sorry! From the back ‘On the outside, Sophie Garou is living every woman’s dream: She has beauty, brains and a big-time position in Austin’s most respected accounting firm not to mention a very sexy, very successful new boyfriend.
Sophie’s life gets a little more hairy when her long-estranged father, Luc, arrives in the Live Music Capital to attend the werewolves’ annual Howl and reconnect with his daughter. But Luc’s plans fall apart after he’s accused of murder and arrested by his archrival, Wolfgang, leader of the Houston pack and one notoriously dirty dog.
Determined to prove her innocence, she and her friends set out to find the real killer. Along the way, Sophie must deal with taboo attractions, Machiavellian intrigues, sinister agendas, and hair-raising betrayals. This one turns Sophie’s world completely upside down, no part of her life is left untouched. Saying that, both Heath and Lindsey’s lives are karenn too. Secrets are aired and declarations made, plus there is new love, old love and plenty of lust as well as blood.
After Luc’s ambitions for Sophie are realised, I’m not sure how Sophie is going to cope with her new life after this but I really really hope that Tom stays in Austin to help her after everything that takes place in this book, it was one of the few questions left unanswered by the end. I can’t say anything more on him without revealing too much. The only thing I was a bit unsure of was how well Heath took Sophie’s being a werewolf and what he was willing to do for her and her father.
Peader not sure whether he or Lindsey took things seriously enough until the end even though they were given a way out. You’ll understand what I mean if you read it. Overall the story was excellent and the ending was happy.
It sort of reminds me of the progression in Carrie Vaughn’s Kitty Norville series.
