Stalking The Others - Book Review

Stalking the Others (H&W Investigations #4)
by Jess Haines

What is it about:
Vampires, werewolves, mages–the Others are very real, and wreaking havoc in Shiarra Waynest’s life. But now, she’s returning the favor…

Once, she was one of the good guys–or as close as a New York P.I. can get. Then Shiarra Waynest was drawn into the world of the Others. Every faction has its own loyalties and agenda. And Shia’s recent betrayal by her ex-boyfriend means that she may be on the verge of becoming a rogue werewolf at the next full moon.

Of course, with all the threats against her, Shia’s not sure she’ll live long enough to find out. The enigmatic vampire Royce wants her back in his clutches, as do two powerful werewolf packs, along with the police. Instead of going into hiding, Shia is enlisting the aid of her enchanted hunter’s belt and every dirty P.I. trick she knows. If she’s going down, she’ll take out as many of her enemies as she can–and hope that in the process, she keeps whatever humanity she has left…

What did I think of it:
If you haven't read Haines' other books in the H&W Investigations series yet you should go out now to buy them because this series is awesome and gets more awesome with each book.

As you might have guessed from the above statement:
I totally love this book!

It's the most emotionally tense book in this series so far and I have both cursed and cheered while reading it. I really felt for Shia and was completely drawn into the story.

Next to this being a very emotional and psychological story, there's also lots of cool action and Shia gets to kick some serious ass. I will confess I totally cheered her on at several occasions.

All in all this is an awesome, thrilling roller coaster ride of a story that keeps you reading. The only reason I didn't finish it in one sitting is that my boss would have fired me if I didn't show up for work. So my advice: start this book when you have plenty of time to read.

And do I even have to tell you I will most certainly read the next book in this series? (It will have zombies!)

Why should you read it:
It's action-packed and awesome Urban Fantasy

I am looking forward to reading this one, I so hope she kicks her ex-boyfriends @$$ and hard.
Not a zombie fan at all, I am plowing through Working Stiff by Rachel Caine at the moment. Not sure I will finish it at.

If Working Stiff is about zombies I might give it a try.

Aurian said...

Yes, very unique kind of zombie, but still, a zombie.
