***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Five years ago, werewolves Mina and Matty Grekov ran away from the Seven Tribes to escape a life of slavery. Together with their Speakers, Sam and Rick, they start a new life in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Escape is not as easy as changing their names.
They must learn to live in a world where they not only have to pay bills, but hide their magical nature. With the help of the local demon hunting population, they learn to love freedom in the Steel City, but the Tribes are never far away.
The seven Uncommon Animals stories tell one large tale of family, unconditional love, and demon hunting.
Uncommon Animals is a collection of seven stories, coming together to weave a story about family, romance, and demon hunting.
I enjoyed this collection. Battles, monsters, world and character building were all present. I can’t say that this is something I would read often, but the author did a great job.
Mina, a stubborn and opinionated gal, was my favorite character. Her brother, Matty, was a solid character, with a deep history. I resonated with the character of the vulnerable and trusting Rick. Sam is still a bit of a mystery to me.
With a small, tasteful touch of erotica, and the pasts of the rich characters coming to life, you begin to take them for who they are. Just like in life, a person’s past can dictate who they become. Sometimes this gives you a little insight and makes you more appreciative or accepting of their flaws.
I have lots of questions about some of the characters and hope there is a second collection in the works. It was almost like watching the first season of a television show. You get attached to some of the characters, find out a bit about their pasts, are still unsure about some of them, and want to find out what’s going to happen next.
The author definitely has talent and I will be on the look out for what she has in store for us next.
