Hunting Season by Shelly Laurenston

A story of Ravens and Crows; Neecy and Yeager; as the story unfolds we learn that Crows are a group of women who are offered a new life as champions of the goddess Skuld; Ravens are Nordic heirs and champions of the God Odin. Both fight for their Gods, both are strong and intelligent, both are trying to keep the world safe from the magic's of the other side. 

The good:
Great beginning familiar themes and plot from the author.

The bad:
Not as good as any of her other works, a little confusing, slow and the ending was beyond rushed. After a two hundred pages of build-up the bad guy was dispatched in two lines, ugh. 

I'm just sayin: Compared to her other series, I was very disappointed with this book; I didn't care about any of the characters or their stories, the background seemed to be rushed, though I was introduced to more and more crows until I got them confused with one another. There were werewolves for no other reason, mentioned more than once and given inner dialogue, though I wasn't sure what their point was. The only thing that I'm certain of is that Neecy (heroine) was annoyingly stubborn and defensive in the face of an open, honest, good man, Yeager. I hate how books drag this sort of thing out; we have all been hurt, but most sensible women (even us tough ones) know a good thing when we see it and will open up a bit, but Neecy was denial for two-hundred and thirty five pages and okay for fifty.

Overall: pass on this book an read one of this authors other gems instead
