I've enjoyed every book in the series

Any additional comments?

I've read or listened to every book in this series. I hadn't taken the time to write a review but after reading the only one posted for this book I had to write my own. Audible has already provided a synopsis of each book so I'll just skip to my impressions. I think each book has gotten better than the last with more exiting action sequences and stronger more involving storylines. The main character Allie is a Hound. She finds things and people, her sense of smell helps with that. Sometimes, in the first book, stopping to describe the smells would take me out of the story and slow the pacing down but the author did figure out how to use that to enhance the story instead of hinder it in the following books. A memory loss problem from using magic was also utilized heavily in the first few books but again the author seemed to have a plan in mind that culminated in the last book. Allie is far from perfect and she does make big mistakes which can make the reader want to throttle her. But when I'm so involved with a character and the story that I stop to mentally berate them that usually also means I've gotten really invested in the book and care about the outcome. If Allie was perfect and right all the time she'd be annoying too. Anyone remember the Wesley Crusher character on The Next Generation? I think you should start with book 1 in the series even though it's not the best. My sister in law did start with book 2 and didn't have any problems catching up with the characters and storyline. This is more of an Urban Fantasy than a Paranormal Romance, there are a few love scenes occasionally here and there in this series but they're part of the flow of the characters development not the main plot point. I like the fantasy world the author has created and I care about the characters, flaws and all. I can't wait for book 8.

Hard Headed Allie...

I have been enjoying the Allie Beckstrom story lines pretty well.
However... Her steadfast stubbornness is starting to grate on me.
It is no longer endearing and is instead verging on stupid.
I hope Monk decides to let her "learn" a little going forward, else I'm probably gonna end letting it push me out of the series... :(
Great fun thus far though..
