When we left our heroine she was in trouble for killing her ex-boyfriend in self defense. Of course this books picks up where that book left off. Here are a few of the highlights of the book.
1. Pride politics plays heavy.
2. A lot of strays are converging on this particular area.
3. There are several power plays to unseat Faythe's father from the council.
4. Romantically Faythe proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that she has not the brain to tie her shoes with.
I am not sure that I have ever given anything short of a five star in the series. Faythe has alway been best at surviving, by doing what was necessary Yet when her life is on the line to the council she cannot keep her damn mouth shut. Although she is known for her mouth, she is also known to bite her tongue when danger would make things worse. She doesn't which it too far out of character. Then she has tried to win back her Beau since the end of last book. When she is faced with her love being exiled she never even thinks, or tries to put the ring on(At least the right finger). To save his life!! This is not the Faythe of the previous books and few times has a character fallen so far outside herself without some development to explain the change.
I have always had an issue with characters acting outside their developmental curve. There was no reason, or stimuli to account for the unfaythe character inhabiting this book. Unless it was left out because of cuts to the book. I would recommend people choke through this one because I believe the next book will make amends for this book. The writing is spot on but the whole books just reads as a setup for the fourth. I am a large fan of this author, this showing is below her talents. I look forward to number four and hope the rest of the series performs better.
Long live Faythe and Mark!
