The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston

The Unleashing - Shelly Laurenston

I really did not know what I was getting into. This was like a mix of Sweet Valley High, Chick Lit, Girls Gone Wild, and a few other things that just DON'T MIX! Crows. Yes, those bird thingies that feed on almost anything and cough up the indigestible stuff up. Yet, the ones in this book all look (I'm assuming) like cover models. Kera is dying and, Vig, a customer she thought was homeless, saves her life, making her a Crow. She's grateful until she realizes that her new life goes against everything she was before. Unable to come to grips with her situation she tries to find control in trying to bring order to a riotous group of females with special abilities. Needing to belong, but making it hard for herself, Kera leans on her love interest, Vig. To make a long story short, this read had too much girl power going on. I listened to the audiobook so the ladies really grated on my eardrums. The bickering and bitchiness really took a toll.

Some may call this a "fun, light, and entertaining" read. For me, there was just too much estrogen, and an unrealistic plot, for me to enjoy it.
