Danika has a fight on her hands, whichever way you look at it. Within SPEAR she has to assert her authority in the face of interference, her love life with girlfriend Rayne is never going to be easy- and she has rogue werewolves to deal with.
I haven’t read the first in the SPEAR series, but I didn’t find that a problem. I was able to get into the story and understand Danika and her world. And what a world! I like the whole premise. Ileandra Young has a wonderfully irreverent and forthright style and it works. It’s particularly effective in the first person narrative she has chosen. Her imaginative writing and compelling characters kept me gripped. I’ll be looking forward to more from this particular author.
I was given this ARC for review.
