 Anger Management 
 Very short story, not even novella status. 
Great to see a side of Shane after his brain washing and times of pure rage in the last one. He trying to follow the doc's recommendation and try to stop and think before temper gets the best of him. We see him get tested and realize when a little violence could actually help when protecting, but still a chance to think about it, and give people a shot to get it right. 

 Last Breath 

    I wanted to read Last Breath because I am addicted to this series, and if you've been following my blog for any time, you'll have noticed my previous love fest reviews for this series. I love the characters, the plot and how something new always comes up and it shapes and develops both Claire the main character but the awesome and fully fleshed out secondary characters. Any time I have a moment in my reading schedule, I have been picking these up. 

   This one had more focus in the beginning on Eve and Michael and the bomb they dropped last book. There has been a lot of backlash and while I so want them to be happy, I can understand some concern and big issues that I just hope they haven't overlooked. 

   Last Breath also gives us the perspectives from Amelie, Michael and Shane, though it was mostly from Claire's point of view. But the additional pov def added to the story. There is an event that we really can't get the full picture of what was going on, and another where emotions of others were so critical that without being in their heads, would have taken away that extra element. 

   There were two, well three events that went down that I never thought I would see because I had my own little view of Morganville and thought that I knew the rules that wouldn't change and people that I could trust. 

    There is a whole new threat in this one, and some of the implications weren't fully played out in this one, and I am so nervous which way it will ultimately go in the next one. 

    The plot and adventure was great, we had some steamy moments with Claire and Shane and got to see a whole new level to their relationship. 

Bottom Line: Another great installment, Rachel Caine never ceases to surprise me.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Do you think that some names feel more supernatural? (Thought of this because of Magnus and any time I have heard that name it is mostly in paranormal books)
