It's been a while...

Subversive - Rebecca Royce

It's been a while since I started Rebecca Royce's Warrior series, over three years actually. This did not detract from the story though. In fact, I'd argue that returning to Rachel Clancy's rag-tag crew of teens after a sizeable break was even better than rushing through the series as quickly as I could. Coming back to witness Jason and Rachel's chemistry, Deacon's strange intense emotions and the raging battles between vampires, werewolves and humans was a welcome relief from the ho-hum of some of the other books I've recently been reading.

I enjoyed the action, the deceptions and the wicked twist in the tale. I can honestly say I wasn't expecting that one.

With a very strong theme of independence, yet feeling alone permeating the story, I was left with a strong feeling of desolation at the close.

Luckily, there's another two books in the series, so I know Rebecca will have more twists and turns for me to endure with the crew. Bring it on!!

I did get a little annoyed with all the 'I love you, no, I love you, no I actually love him," that occurred in this book, it was much stronger than I remember it being in the other books. I hope this little issue doesn't become the main theme of the remaining books.

I'll be onto the next ones a lot sooner this time.
