Been a while since I've participated in these, but a new blog is a great excuse to get back in the habit. Hi to all new followers! ^_^ 

This week's question:

Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??

Not really, but two books came close: Kelley Armstrong's Bitten and Rachel Vincent's Stray. You can learn how I feel at my review blog, but basically, these books depict oppressive societies as the good guys. The lead character of Stray is a woman stuck in a chauvinistic world where she's treated like little more than a sex object, while the wolves in Bitten are oppressive to wolves outside the pack and prone to keeping their secrets through murder. The authors are both savvy enough to recognize the problem and make the bad guys worse, but it's very hard to root in favor of such an uncivilized bunch.


  1. Never read anything by Rachel Vincent but I heard she's really good!!

    Great post, new follower:D

  2. She is, actually. Great character and voice. And I have to get back to her werecat books after I slog my way through all these new releases...

  3. I've read Vincent's Shifters series up to halfway book 5. Love that series, but I totally agree about the were society! She does a great job of making us realize the pros and cons of their society though as well as sticking in Faythe, who totally turns that world on its ass!
