Setting: Wild woods of Canada’s Northwest territories.

Bishop is a loner, by design and by choice. Having grown up in an abusive family, he ends up in jail for killing his father to save his mother. Tried as an adult he spends his late teens and early adulthood in Jail. Because of that and the PTSD of his youth he lives an isolated life.
Seri comes along and throws that out the window of the tiny Shack Bishop is living in. Turns out there’s more to Seri than meets the eye. I went into this book blind, but guessed at Seri’s multiple personalities before the reveal. I’ve since seen it called out in teasers so it’s not really a spoiler.
I loved how Shay did the reveal though and how Bishop struggled, coped, adapted and worked with Seri throughout all of this. Throw in a woman in Peril and I was 100% here for all of it.

I’ve always enjoyed Shay’s books because I know she’s never writing the same book twice. There’s a time and place for familiarity, Shay Savage is not the author to go to for that.

“Judgment Road” – Christine Feehan

I think this must be a spin off. There were several instances where references were made to other characters/situations/place with a casualness that assumed we knew who they were. I found myself confused as to whether this was supposed to be a paranormal/supernatural book, because the “special skills” the Torpedo Ink members exhibited were kinda supernatural, but if they are then it’s not explained well. If they’re not supernatural, there felt like a disconnect as to how their special skills were discovered. The Hero was the wrong kind of Alpha for me and the heroine flip flopped between bad ass and meek. I was super excited to get this ARC from Net Galley; Christine Feehan is a name I’ve seen around and this seemed right up my alley. Turned out to be a swing and a miss.
