“Fortune favors the brave,” I told her. It also kills the stupid, but I decided to keep that fact to myself.
Curran is out of town, so of course things are going to go wrong. Taking a lot of what’s been building, between the Pack having troubles with a non-shifter as essentially second in command, the relationship between the Pack and the People, Kate’s trouble with Roland and more particularly with Hugh.
Things take a while to really get rolling and it doesn’t completely feel like the halves of the story entirely gel together. But in the end, it’s still a pretty solid story. Not the best of the series but pretty good and with the first real onscreen appearance of Roland . Things are going to get real. So many expectations… and he ends up even more chilling and human than expected.
And oh man. Slayer gets replaced?! For a non-character character, it’s impressive how much I actually felt that.
And then that ending… Curran is going to give up everything he's built for Kate... (although to be fair, I bet he won't mind a little less pressure for a while) That's something.
Random snark of the day:
(view spoiler) [ “ It’s like you had a coming-out party,” Andrea said. “You’ve been presented to polite society, except now everybody wants to kill you.”
“Kate Daniels, a debutante.” Andrea grinned.
“It’s not funny.”
“It’s hilarious.” The smile slid off Andrea’s face and she vomited on the snow.
“Karma,” I told her. (hide spoiler) ]
