Scarlet - Marissa Meyer

Solid second entry. I was thrown by the first chapter introducing a new character/POV to the series, but it was clever the way the author wove the threads of Little Red Riding Hood into the narrative. Still excellent, deep worldbuilding introducing additional locations, but as a middle book in a series, it didn't feel as fresh as the first, or as gripping as later entries are likely to. Enjoyable read.

The New York Times bestselling author of Guardian's Matereturns to the world of the Shifters and a tale of a new love under fire...

 

 

A man is only as strong...

 

Red wolf Shifter Dimitri has fought his whole life for respect. It is claimed that red wolves are tainted with coyote blood and therefore not pure. He may not be skilled at verbally defending himself, but because he's a bodyguard, tracker, and champion of the fight clubs, his fists are always ready for some rough and tumble. However, he'd prefer a roll in the hay with the woman who is his oldest friend.

...as the woman who's got his back...

 

A spirited leopard Shifter and a fellow tracker, Jaycee Bordeaux has no problem forging a mate bond with Dimitri, but soon the two are called to infiltrate a rogue group bent on enslaving Shifters. Jaycee may have defended Dimitri from taunts before, but they now face a more lethal danger--one that threatens not only the future of their people, but also their love.

Red Wolf is gripping, exciting, nerve wracking, and had me falling more in love with this series. I relished this installment.

 

Jaycee is strong, capable, and reluctant to accept the mate claim. Dimitri is strong, sexy, and has a stutter which only adds to his character. The reluctant’s that Jaycee has was handled well and the stutter only added to Dimitri’s unique character aspect. The romance is sweet and these two worked well together.

 

I absolutely loved returning to the sentient house. We got a small taste of this unique house in Wild Things, so to come back and see more. It was fabulous. We also get to go to fairy and that aspect was exhilarating and the danger is heart stoping.

 

Red Wolf was crafted together superbly and is a breathtaking addition.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

This felt like a lot longer than 278 pages on audio.  This was over 10 hours long…10 hours of unlikable characters, lines delivered in the wrong context and an annoyingly done love triangle (or square). 

 

I don't usually get this upset with love triangle's, but this one really irked me.  Solina flip-flopped almost the entire book between Val and Thorin and ran hot and cold in her interactions with each, throughout.  She pushed away then pulled them in and pushed away again.  So much so, that I'm thinking she really likes Skyla instead.  Skyla accused her of having a girl crush, even.   I think the narrator is at fault for how cheesy the lines were delivered, she was not on her game at all.  This could have been a really good story, otherwise, because the Nordic element was an interesting one.  I just couldn't get past my dislike for these characters and the narrator to really listen to it.

 

Will I continue this series?  Nah…I'll pass.

Reread of Brother's Ruin by Emma Newman
Brother's Ruin - Emma Newman

Series: Industrial Magic #1

 

The second novella in Emma Newman's Industrial Magic series came out last week, and I was just hazy enough on the details of the first one that I decided to reread it before reading the second (plus novella so it's short). If anything, I think I enjoyed it more this time around and felt more forgiving towards some of the things that felt too convenient before. This is basically an alternate history that takes place in the Victorian era where the industrial revolution is being helped along by magic and magic used in industrial settings. The story takes places in London.

 

My first review can be found here.
