In the never-ending saga that is my love-hate relationship with Robson Trowbridge, I, half-Were Hedi Peacock, have had a change of heart. Ever since I shoved Trowbridge through the Gates of Merenwyn, I’ve been the leader of the pack—hard to believe, right? The thing is: I’m half-Fae. So even though my Were side is ready to heed the call of the wild, the other part of me is desperate to take flight. And much as it pains me to admit it, life without Trowbridge is really starting to were me down…


To make matters worse, the wolves of Creemore want my blood—and the North American Council of Weres wants me dead. So I’m just counting the days until Trowbridge returns from the other realm…and comes to my brave rescue…and becomes my alpha mate. Wishful thinking? Of course it is. But given all the mess I’ve been through already, what’s the harm in doing a little bit of daisy-plucking? Besides, Trowbridge owes me bigtime. A girl can dream.

Thoughts: The thing about were-books is, I absolutely freakin’ love them! Despite my reading habits having taken a turn towards all things YA, I keep coming back to urban fantasy whenever a book’s blurb even mentioned some sort of pack dynamics being integral to the storyline. It always makes for a wild ride, and The Thing About Weres is no exception.

I hadn’t read the first book in this series, but the premise sounded too cool to pass up. It did take a little while to figure out exactly what was going on and how Hedi’s world worked, but once I was there, I was totally hooked. Some of the descriptions of the magic dynamics got a little bogged down and confusing for me, but Hedi as pack leader more than made up for it. I’ll likely double back and read the first book in this series before The Problem with Promises comes out next year.
