Hey Creatures of the Night!
You are in for a whole slew of reviews! We have been reading way more than we have been writing… Bad people we know. So up first is Neko, demons, vampires, and werewolves!
Title: Xoe Meyes Trilogy
Author: Sara C. Roethle
Synopsis: A demon’s life is never easy. Join Xoe as she’s thrown to the wolves, the werewolves that is. As if witches, human sacrifices, and other demons weren’t enough to deal with, Xoe must struggle to rein in her powers before she sets something more important than a washing machine on fire. If she can’t, her whole life might go up in flames.
My Thoughts: This was a really cute series, though I have only read the first three (working on getting the others). The vampire is adorable being gentleman from the 1700’s, the werewolf, the good kind, is your typical hyper guy, (but still super cute, you just want to hug him!) the two female wolves add to the action and are good girlfriends, the only human is great because she wants to belong and have fun powers, and Xoe is a pain in the butt at times but still a decent character. All of the characters have flaws, my favorite is the vampire because he tries so hard to protect Xoe and feels like a failure when he is unable to. Also the humor, the second book even mentions that Xoe’s vampire doesn’t sparkle in the light, score for Twilight jokes!
My biggest problem with the book was Xoe always being so bloody headstrong, she is completely unwilling to listen to anyone, and her grumping because her boyfriend was raised to hold the door and be respectful to women. Yes she can get the door herself and she is a 21st century girl but a lot of danger and trouble could be avoided is she just listened. And could she please give the poor guy a hug when he feels like a failure? She just leaves him! I wish she was a little warmer to the poor guy when he needs her not just when she needs him…
Overall I really enjoyed the trilogy and want to read the rest, I’m just too cheap to buy them right now… But I highly recommend if you are into vampires and werewolves to go check out the Kindle listing, which just happens to be free!
So have any of you guys read this series? What did you think?
