My interest in the Kate Daniels books has seriously waned. I mostly skimmed through this one. I got so sick of the secondary character, Saiman I wanted to scream. When part of Kate’s “family” showed up, I began to skim. I flipped through and read bits here and there until the final battle scene. I didn’t miss anything by skipping major portions. Kate’s treatment by the Pack was disappointing. I believe I’m done with this series. I wanted to get to the romance, but it isn’t worth the wait. I hate the main character so I have come to the conclusion that these books are not for me. Usually bad characters develop and grow on you as a series progresses. She hasn’t, and I don’t feel she ever will.
