"The rupture happens during the first night of every full moon. The Beast emerges through its human hosts and preys on those to whom it is drawn..."
Firstly, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Having stumbled upon the first book in this series quite by accident, and then quickly devouring the second, I was very tickled to see the third in this story released and offered for my reading pleasure! And what a story it is - well written, horrific, historically astute, a light sprinkling of romance - I wouldn't just call it a werewolf story, but I have to shelf it somewhere.
Although there is an introduction of sorts to assist/remind readers of events of the first two books, I wouldn't recommend picking up the story here. To get the full texture of the story, you really need to start at the beginning, to understand the bond between David and Max, and how all the other hunters are connected to one another.
I have to say I was quite surprised at several elements in this book: no spoilers, but the author did pull the rug out from under my legs with David's kidnapping. Additionally, the introduction of new characters, such as iron-lunged Milena and the elderly Navajo spiritual guide, were well done.
Well done, Ms. Nappier. Very recommended.
