I liked The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, but I didn't love it. One problem that I had with it was Sam and Grace, they were okay, but I was very indifferent towards their relationship. Now, Isabel and Cole? I loved them both and I shipped them hard. I loved the sarcasm, the hatred, the banter, and the tension. And I was a bit upset when their relationship was never resolved in the series.
So, boy, was I glad when I found out about this book.
I admit it, the main reason why I loved this book was because it's basically entirely about Isabel and Cole, my two favorite characters in The Wolves of Mercy Falls. But I was glued to this book! I had dishes piling up in my room because, instead of putting them away, I wanted to read (notice that I still ate food, but in my defense, I gathered the food when I got home from school and then work and then sat down and read). But it was very difficult for me to get up and away from that book, I was that immersed Now, it wasn't because of excitement that made me not want to put it down, but it was the shipping.
Yes, I'm a shipper and I ship these guys hard. I kept reading and reading because I WANTED THEM TO GET TOGETHER! I knew was going to happen and I was strongly anticipating it! AND ALL THAT TENSION! Come on! How could I want to put it down?!
One interesting fact, though, about this book is that it has very little paranormal aspects. Sure, Cole's a werewolf, but he hardly ever changes in this book and it hardly ever comes up. This book is mainly about Cole trying to come back to his life (and Isabel & Cole's relationship, of course). But I oddly liked the contemporary feeling of this book.
Issues? Yeah, I might've had a few, but it's manly parties and stuff, which I think do make sense in the story, so I'll not be picky about it. I also didn't really care as long as my ship sailed.
Basically, if you're a fan of Cole & Isabel, you really need to read this! (Hello, fellow shippers!)
If you prefer your paranormal to be paranormal, then you might pass this by, as this book has a huge contemporary feel.
