Awesome Review! :)
This is one of the best reviews ever!!!
CIRCLE OF LIES (RED RIDGE PACK #2) by SARA DAILEY and STACI WEBER Blog Tour and Review
Rating: 5 wings
Previous to reading 'Circle of Lies I did read 'Pack of Lies' (also 5 wings!!!) because I am a bit OCD when it comes to reading a series of books!!! Although in the case of 'Circle of Lies reading #1 is not necessary I do feel that I had an introduction to the pack and the back ground to Red Ridge.
Last year I read several bad werewolf/shapeshifter books and I have found myself avoiding them since. However when the opportunity arose to review 'Circle of Lies' I thought it may be time to put aside my prejudice, and I have a feeling the Red Ridge pack have cured me!
Unlike other shapeshifter books I found 'Circle of Lies' focussed more on the human aspect of the story, and the wolf was merely a byproduct.
'Circle of Lies' is Aiden, Teagan and Peter's story. Aiden being the shifter, Teagan the human and Peter the crazy wolf-hunter. The story is told from the three differing perspectives, but Sara Dailey and Staci Weber avoid confusion by heading their chapters with the name of the narrator.
Aiden is coming to terms with being a werewolf, his first change, finding love and his real parentage. Teagan is dealing with her alcoholic and abusive father, her self-image, first love and the issues that surround that. Peter is coping with his uncle's death, his time spent in a psychiatric hospital, the fact that no-one believes in the existence of werewolves and his deteriorating mental health. These three stories intertwine in the most beautiful, explosive and heartbreaking way. Sara Dailey and Staci Weber tell a YA story concentrated on human emotions and relationships, whilst maintaining a paranormal element.
This book would appeal to fans of YA romance, as well as shapeshifter fiction. I admit I was blown away by it and can't wait for #3!!!
