The Savage Grace by Bree Despain

This was my favorite out of the whole series, and I was glad it was a long read in fact it could have even been longer I wouldn't have minded. I was that caught up in the story and the emotions of the characters. Mrs. Despain writes these amazing characters that you really feel, whether it's their joy or their pain and it is intense with all those big werewolf emotions are concerned lol. This story did make me laugh out loud and cry which I was a little surprised by. This story is full of action and suspense. Whether the town or Calab trying to kill them, or dissension among the ranks the pages just kept flying by.
Poor Daniel is stuck as the great White Wolf, and Grace is searching for the answer to help him change back, at the same time trying to fight her inner wolf from changing her. She also is dealing with the fact her mother has been institutionalized and may never come home. A brother who she is unsure if she can trust. The Lost Boys ( Daniels new pack) needing a roof over there heads, the town wanting to kill the howling wolf, and finally wondering when Caleb will come back to try and kill them. As you can see there is a lot going on, but all in a good way. I loved every minute and was glued to my kindle. The plot moved quickly and the writing was well done a few typos the editor should have caught. I loved how the story/events all played out it was perfect and done smoothly. I love these characters they are so well done. Daniel is swoon worthy and awesome always thinking of Grace, and it is so sweet, he is always think of his pack and Grace and how to keep them all safe, he is awesome. Grace is amazing in this book she really shows what she is made of, she is sweet, smart, courageous and tough when she needs to be, she takes care of those she loves and has an amazing forgiving heart. I was glad to have Jude back in this story, he has many demons in his life to overcome. Talbot is quite the guy he is cute and sweet with Grace, and mysteries the type of guy you love to hate. The ending was really well done tying up all the lose ends and leaving me feeling satisfied. Great series the old saying "Save the Best for Last" definitely applies here. Enjoy!

The Calling by Kelley Amstrong

I really enjoyed The Calling it is well written with fast pace action. This second book in the Darkness Rising series picks back up right were it left off in The Gathering. The action starts up pretty quickly and goes throughout the story. Maya and friends have been whisked away in the helicopter, to find themselves in danger once again after the helicopter crashes and leaves them in a precarious situation. The action and adventure is great in this story. I loved seeing how they handled each situation thrown their way. We also get to find out more about Maya's friends and there different powers which I enjoyed. In this story we are told more about what is going on with the lab and with the kids, the who and what of it all. A few surprises there. Yes we get more Danial and Rafe in this story as well. I love them both, I am in trouble. One minute I think Rafe is the perfect guy for Maya. Then Danial does something amazing and I think no he would be perfect for her. Usually I have a clearer conclusion to who I think should get the girl , but I just can't choose. Daniel is forever thoughtful and protective of Maya. Rafe is charming and caring too. It will be nice to have closure on this with the final book. This was a fun well paced, well written story that I couldn't put down and completely enjoyed.
