    I still completely dig this series, but this book kept rubbing me wrong in all sorts of ways and was my least favorite Before I start listing the reasons of woe, I ll mark off some pluses I really liked the ravens Their structure, the captain , and the moments with that.Seshua was aroundwithout them going at each other s throats They even had a dance.We get a small Zach moment and a little bit of the kids.At the end of the book Emma mentions maybe going back to the ranch I liked them I still completely dig this series, but this book kept rubbing me wrong in all sorts of ways and was my least favorite Before I start listing the reasons of woe, I ll mark off some pluses I really liked the ravens Their structure, the captain , and the moments with that.Seshua was aroundwithout them going at each other s throats They even had a dance.We get a small Zach moment and a little bit of the kids.At the end of the book Emma mentions maybe going back to the ranch I liked them there, wish they would as a home base.We get a resolution on a big bad who did her completely wrong at the end of the third book.Summer finally pops back up briefly I like her and hope she sticks around.Maybe not all is lost with a character previously thought dead and gone.Now, the negatives.SO Much ANGST It s constant It s every chapter It s every relationship It won t stop It beat at me It mixed in with every event, every relationship s good and bad moment, every plot point Seriously stop Too much angst with Telly, but not only that it s with Red Sun, Fern, Alexis.I can t believe the author thought it was okay to have us wait five books for her to sleep with one of them, to have it done under duress at a magically induced orgy Having people having to sleep with other people they wouldn t have chosen to otherwise feels too rape like to me I m stunned the author thought this was okay, truly Emma doesn t seem to care since she wanted Red Sun anyway and is happy it s finally happened when she didn t have her nerve before, but what about other people sighs The forced orgy aside, it feels cheated to have the firsts be like that, not even in their control.I don t like Emma as much now She was oddly growing diva for the first portion of the book, and other times she s randomly bitchy She kept getting on my nerves Since she s the main character, that doesn t help.I still love Fern as my favorite but the author is so focused on Alexi who is the main in this book and there all the time that it seems their bond is in a way stronger now than Ferns, which is crushing to me He joins in on their private conversations even I wanted her to have alone time with characters but she was interrupted the entire book by having too many people around all the time Seriously, it s claustrophobic I want her to have special times and magic with her characters, not have to share everything constantly and hear the other character s thoughts of everything with her relationships It s hard to explain but was cloying.We get she s powerful, we don t need her to have to say it every few chapters On the other hand, she continues getting hurt, faint, weak from nausea, and now has a new serious side effect of doing something with the bears at the end of the book that will causeangst concern in the future sighs This one also has one of the weakest plot wise A few things happen but they are kind of on the sidelines to.well, angst relationships I hope the next book hasFern by himself and their bond strong again,of the others by themselves in their own scenes with Emma without so much angst, not having to put in every politically correct thing in one book just to have it in there, and Emma not acting like everything s about her all the time We shall see Since I enjoyed the series so much so far despite this last book, I ll be there with bells on when the next one arrives It s been since 2016 so hopefully it s soon

    Buddy read with RHR Well I kind of went on a super binge and didn t wait for anyone else but its not my fault OK I wasn t able to stop after 3 Book 1 Book 2 Book 3 Book 4 I ll make this kind of my series review and try really hard not to include any spoilers I learned something about myself while reading this series I m not good at binge reading series I almost gave it after book2 but I m so glad I stuck with it, I do get bored of the same thing quite quickly so it say Buddy read with RHR Well I kind of went on a super binge and didn t wait for anyone else but its not my fault OK I wasn t able to stop after 3 Book 1 Book 2 Book 3 Book 4 I ll make this kind of my series review and try really hard not to include any spoilers I learned something about myself while reading this series I m not good at binge reading series I almost gave it after book2 but I m so glad I stuck with it, I do get bored of the same thing quite quickly so it says a lot about this series that it kept me reading The main reason for this was the massive question mark over the harem The whole series had me on edge, deciding who was in and who was out Like Ok he is in for sureno waithe s notnope now I don t like him and now I want those two Only one male who happens to share a name with a household plant and features heavily in my nightmareshad me tripping over myself praying it would finally happen and I can t spoil it by answering that question Sorry There was a lot of mixed emotions over several of the male leads, and those aren t resolved yet Its very very slow burn But you know the journey is worth itThis quote pretty much sums the plot arc in most of the booksWhat the hell do you want me to do, she snapped I don t want to do this, but I can do it He gave a low cough, all jaguar, and turned away Not with fury but disgust Have it your way, Emma, he said You always do, even when it destroys you Emma the poor thing is way to self sacrificial, any problem anywhere, she s out to fix it with no regard for her own safety Oh she pretends to care and allows bodyguards and stuff but when it comes down to it she does whatever the hell she wants That did annoy me by the end because you know it was gonna lead to trouble Frustrating Not sure why in book 5 the author needed to have every person either gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender I think we got the point there it was a bit overkill But wow what a series Every emotion was felt Binge read Lost a few weeks off my life Neglected family and household chores Epic Now if we could just find out when book 6 will be releasedgiven this one was out in 2016 it s not looking like it will be anytime soon

    Well, that answers a few questions But wait I haveThe Raven Thief saw a lot of action Fighting action, talking action, sexy times action, and even downtime action movie nights I gotta say, I like the Raven crew I love how Anna doesn t shy away from same sex relationships, Rain asking to use she and hers pronouns, and of course Capt Jerome being Ace Really good stuff Also, love how Emma is handling her loss of the foot She s being a champ about it Now for the guys Oh Telly, how Well, that answers a few questions But wait I haveThe Raven Thief saw a lot of action Fighting action, talking action, sexy times action, and even downtime action movie nights I gotta say, I like the Raven crew I love how Anna doesn t shy away from same sex relationships, Rain asking to use she and hers pronouns, and of course Capt Jerome being Ace Really good stuff Also, love how Emma is handling her loss of the foot She s being a champ about it Now for the guys Oh Telly, how I love this crazy character And now Summer wants to find him a human female I don t really think she will let that happen I think she has always been harsh with him, forgiving others for less, etc O get her arguements, I do, but I still am going to hold out hope for him to get in the harem Why Alexi, Telly, Emma Yep, that would be good times indeed Now, Emma realizes she has feelings for Fern so she locked them down Guess she can unlock them now that he is in molt and tell him Red Sun, I still don t know what to expect with him He seems to convenient because of his curse and all that I don t feel as connected to him.Seshua seems to be coming around like he did when making sure Rain got her pronouns without any issues But sometimes, he s just all alpha nonnegotiable Still think its gonna happen maybe Summer where do you fit in with our misfits Or maybe that is the point You don t But stay cus they need your brand of crazy unless you plan to screw them over.They better not let Alan go And Ms Anna please write faster If you need someone to beta read or ARC for you, I m your girl

    Review because I don t know if I ever reviewed this book series when I read it initially, perhaps over a year ago Having just re read it, it s all fresh in mind This review is for the whole series.First of all, Anna McIlwraith s world building and character development is second to none I have never read an UF RH lite with such quality writing its up there in my book with Karen Marie Moening s Fever Series, and that is saying a lot Some thoughts on the characters Emma Chase is equal Review because I don t know if I ever reviewed this book series when I read it initially, perhaps over a year ago Having just re read it, it s all fresh in mind This review is for the whole series.First of all, Anna McIlwraith s world building and character development is second to none I have never read an UF RH lite with such quality writing its up there in my book with Karen Marie Moening s Fever Series, and that is saying a lot Some thoughts on the characters Emma Chase is equal parts plucky and ballsy and soft and squishy It makes her character very approachablehuman and less a caricature of a UF heroine I appreciate that she doesn t go all goo goo when a hot guy comes around even if she does, indeed acknowledge all the shifters around her tend to go very naked and are insanely hot She has guts There are a few self sacrificial moments that got on my nerves throughout the series, but it was woven into the fabric of her character, which made it less annoying One of the marks of good character development is if you take a snapshot of the character at the beginning and end of the book, series, whatever, and ask, has this character grown Would their reaction to such and such person or event be the same as page 1 of the book In Emma s case, she grew, changed, stretched, and was continuously broken and reformed as a person throughout the series I can t say enough how much I love this character.Telly Beautiful and agonizingly stupid I mean, REALLY He is a gazillion years old and selfish andthan a little unhinged I loved this character as well, and just want so muchfor him I am really hoping future books bring his redemption.Alexi Clearly Alexi took a page from the Barrons play book I can t quite put this character into words, but lets just say, he is everything you want in a romantic MC EVEN if you don t like snakes, you ll like Alexi Cold yet passionate Ruthless yet gentle Controlling yet supportive I know, I m talking in opposites, but he s all these things in the right kind of way Red Sun Red kind of sneaks up on you At first you think he s going to be a side character, but then he roars right into the plot and doesn t go anywhere And somewhere in the third book you realize there sto this characterthat he s important to the plotto Emma To me, Red s character on the inside was the least clear thoughts, motivations, hopes dreams , perhaps because he spent the least amount of time in dialogue with Emma FERN FERN FERN FERN FERN I am obsessed with Fern I clearly saved the best for last I ve never read another bond like his and Emma s At first, it s terrible for her Violating and inconvenient but dammit, it s impossible to hate Fern for what he did To read Fern is to love Fern Like Alexi, it s hard to describe him as a character He s still got so many secrets and I am so excited to find out what s going to happen to him in the coming books Out of all the characters, I am the most anxious for Fern and Telly to get sorted with Emma.The plot The one critique I have about the overall plot the thing that s linking all the books together is that it s not entirely clear where this ship is headed All the individual books hold up and there are a few loose ends that have the potential to be bigger shitstorms if Anna McIlwraith writes them as such For example, view spoiler the Brotherhood, Keti Horne, the fail safe, the prophesy and its implicationswhich is super unclear hide spoiler I am curious but trusting the author how she will tie these strings up in the coming book or two The driver of this series is the characters and their development Yes, there is a prophesy And loads of action and suspensebut this about Emma and her guys and her growing her supernatural family There s a lot of dialogue The romance is EXTREMELY slow burn Like, author says this outright not till the 4th 5th book slow SLOW SLOW SLOW You have to be okay with both these things if you re gonna enjoy these books Clearly, I am a masochist because I want.At this moment, McIlwraith has said she s still working on the sixth book, but who knows when that will get published She hasn t given up yet, so I m hopeful this year will bring a new installment

    This was a really nice urban fantasy series based around shapeshifter clans and a unique human the caller of the blood who could heal them and was necessary for them to thrive It has plenty of plot arcs, is well written with strong characterization and emotional depth I was really enjoying the series.And then came this book.It s a coming out party with gay, lesbian, bi, trans and asexual characters appearing in the plot This together with a couple explicit sex scenes, a mass orgy and maybe This was a really nice urban fantasy series based around shapeshifter clans and a unique human the caller of the blood who could heal them and was necessary for them to thrive It has plenty of plot arcs, is well written with strong characterization and emotional depth I was really enjoying the series.And then came this book.It s a coming out party with gay, lesbian, bi, trans and asexual characters appearing in the plot This together with a couple explicit sex scenes, a mass orgy and maybe a threesome I ve nothing against any of the above in its proper place but I can t really see the relevance to the story or the characters It feelslike the author just read a couple Laurell K Hamilton books and suddenly decided to set the scene for a switch to full on erotica in the next installment I m reading these books as an urban fantasy fan and the direction of travel is at best paranormal romance s so that fires a torpedo into the series for me.Disappointed

    I have no wordsThese books start the same with the long drawn out relationship drama Emma has a lot to learn and yet she doesn t seem to be learning I really don t know what to say because this was disappointing I knowabout everyone s sexual orientation than what the point of this book was There was a lot of complicated storylines and hardly any solutions I felt with Telly we were going in a circle and at times I disliked Emma because of it She is a hypocrite and a coward I don t kn I have no wordsThese books start the same with the long drawn out relationship drama Emma has a lot to learn and yet she doesn t seem to be learning I really don t know what to say because this was disappointing I knowabout everyone s sexual orientation than what the point of this book was There was a lot of complicated storylines and hardly any solutions I felt with Telly we were going in a circle and at times I disliked Emma because of it She is a hypocrite and a coward I don t know what will happen in the next book however I m sure there is going to berelationship issues


  8. Brooke Brooke says:

    I feel like I ran a marathon and am disappointed rather than satisfied at the end Still giving this a 3, but it s the weakest of the series and left me feeling down when we finally got to the big hoorah This book has wayyy to much going on and jumps from one plot, to another scene with virtually no downtime or breathing room Basically it felt incredibly long but rushed at the same time Still, I ll eagerly await the next installment.


  9. Searcy Searcy says:
