Wonderfully funny story....with some really touching scenes too.
Didn't enjoy book 1 of the series very much, so was a little wary of this one, but I needn't have been worried. Matthew's narration was outstanding, ..Show More »some parts of the story were laugh out loud funny, especially Lance's excruciating awkwardness at giving Roman advice on sexual matters **snort**, dogs peeing (in human form) on lampposts and Matt wondering what the hell he'd gotten himself into, the dog films at the fleapit of a cinema in town and the inhabitants all trying to keep Matt in view, but without looking suspicious...and failing miserably. I really loved Matthew's warm interpretation of Roman, and the struggles he'd had with suddenly becoming a 'Quickened' and human after the death of his Army K-9 human partner James in Afghanistan, and Roman's own injury in the same incident. I also loved that he struggled with himself when he knew he was falling in love with Matt but couldn't risk explaining what he was for fear of exposing everyone else in Mad Creek and did the honourable thing...said nothing, and buried his pain and anguish. I absolutely <3 Roman to bits!!
This is book 3 in the series and I feel it's the best so for.There is a strong story line with lots of anst all mixed in with the ongoing introduction..Show More » to the Quickening race.Milo is just too cute for words and I was pleased to read more about Tim and the Lance as well as Roman and Matt. I really enjoyed the narrator's 'voices' and he has enhance the overall enjoyment of this story. I hope he continues to narrate the whole series.
