As always Laurenston celebrates her version of female comradery with endearments like ‘bitches’ and ‘heifer’. If this form of feminism offends, or is something you take seriously then don’t bother reading her laugh out loud books. I listened to this book in audible format and really enjoyed it, after I skipped the graphic sex.
This is a fascinating world that Laurenston created based on Norse mythologies that are not completely focused on Thor and Loki or Odin and Frigga, but on other Norse Deities. Thor and Odin are both mentioned as they both have their warriors but they are not the central focus. Really, the dieties are just the vehicle on which the plot is based. If you have read any of the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon then some of the plot elements are familiar. I do enjoy the world’s that Laurenston creates. The Pride Shifters Series was amazing and I can see where they might eventually intersect with these Crows. I know that Hunting Season (The Gathering Book 1) is considered a different series but like the Magnus Pack and Pride series I believe they are two sides of the same series.
This is a fast paced series with characters that you will love, hate, and love to hate. The main female character is both wonderful and flawed at the same time. She is retired marine with a pit bull and an inability to kill wantonly. Normally the last thing would be good, but Crows are sent into situations when killing is needed. The main male character was born and raised to be a Raven, but this hasn’t stopped him from falling for a Crow. Watch how a retired marine and her pit bull come to terms with their new life and bring some special joy to the Crows and Ravens; causing havoc and meeting people along the way.
