Review of The Hunt and Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent



Hunt (Wildcats 0.5)

This short story was previously in the anthology Chicks Kick But

It’s been more than four years since Abby Wade survived capture and torture by a quartet of rogue shifters. Back then she was a scared kid, just trying to survive.

Now Abby is all grown up, and if she’s learned anything from training with Faythe Sanders, the world’s first female Alpha, it’s that she can take care of herself—and anyone else who comes along. So when her college roommate is abducted from a campsite deep in the Appalachian woods, Abby knows exactly how to get her back…

The rules of the hunt are simple. Kill or be killed.

Abby Wade is not ready to die.

 

Review:

Finally! Rachel Vincent has returned to the shifter world! Abby!!! Then there's Jace!!!! He is the best!!! I can't wait to read their story in Lion's Share! This short story was just enough to entice me back into the world I loved so much.




Lion's Share (Wildcats #1)

Abby Wade has a dangerous secret.

Two months ago, she disobeyed an order, but instead of kicking her out of the Pride, Jace offered her a job. Since then, she’s been battling a completely inappropriate crush on the young, hot Alpha. But when accepting his job offer seems like the only way to keep her skeletons safely in their closet, Abby doesn’t hesitate.

Jace Hammond has a big problem.

A rogue is slaughtering humans in his territory, and he must eliminate the threat before the entire shifter species is exposed. There could not be a worse time for Abby to accept a job he only offered as a boost to her confidence. Abby is smart, beautiful, and resilient—more than enough to distract any man from the mission. Unfortunately, she may just be the worst enforcer ever to hold the title.

As they hunt the killer, Abby’s secret becomes a threat to Jace’s authority and to her own life. But the real danger is the grip she has on his twice-shy heart.

 

Review:

OH MY STARS!!! I'm actually kind of speechless. Rachel Vincent managed to write another phenomenal installment set in the shifter world that I absolutely LOVED!
The mystery and intrigue in the plot was well written and climaxed with perfect execution. I don't think she could have done a better job writing Abby and Jace's story. I always loved Jace! I was actually on team Jace in the original series. He's just written so yummy.
After reading The Hunt, I really got a chance to see Abby as a more fleshed out character. Before, she was a minor character, so I didn't have much invested in her. The more I read about her, the more fabulous she became.
There was a love triangle, but it was resolved with a deeply satisfying conclusion about halfway through the book. The romance was hot as well. There were a few sexy scenes :)
I can't say much more, other than say how awesome of a writer Rachel Vincent is. I really can't wait for the next installment in this series. I wish she would write faster so I could have me little piece of happy to read. Good books always go by to fast!
This gets more stars than I usually give. I mean, it was EPIC! Ten glittery stars for another great Wildcats book!
