Arctic Bite by N.J. Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow - this book was unexpected and completely different from book 1 in this series. The author wasn't kidding about each of these being able to be read as standalone. While the framework is there, this story had a different feel.
We join another member of the Forgotten, Alexei, who is a bear-pire, and has an amazingly snarky and adorable inner voice. He has been given an assignment, and he has spent months trying to track the target down to make sure she deserves to be killed. Cassie seems like your average bartender, until you get to know her. Turns out, she's a reaper who is on the run from her "family." Obviously, sparks fly between these two, leading to many sizzling times.
All that aside, this was an adorable and surprising tale of two misfits and outcasts finding their way. Sure, there's a lot of insanely huge paranormal baggage with both of them, but it's still a cute romance. I especially liked the surprising twists and reveals. Cassie definitely delivered as the heroine.
