Heather Hildenbrand and Bam Shepherd have quickly released book 3, The Girl Who Cried War, in their Of Fates and Fables series. Romy Cartelli is totally into this werewolf thing especially since it comes with a main course of Kash Montgomery, a constant supply of Anna’s signature deserts, and backup consisting of Talia’s lethal skills. But the happily-ever-after won’t happen until Anna’s ex-frat-boyfriend, revealed to be the insane werebro who has been kidnapping guys and girls for his magically controlled rebel pack, is destroyed once and for all. With the pack behind them, Romy’s social media savvy and Tatia’s ninja assassin skills might be the difference between winning and losing the all-out war for control.
Heather and Bam, in their first writing collaboration, have produced a snarky, nonstop party found on the pages of a book. This mature (because of some sizzling scenes) YA shifter romance is its own story yet seems to spoof some famous paranormal romances. Their one-liners, like when Romy declares “I’m Bella Swanning the hell out of this werewolf thing”, will keep you chuckling even when the intense action gets your heart pumping. I can’t help but think these two authors might have had just a little too much fun writing this story together and that they decided to use Romy and Talia as fronts for their own personalities. Heather and Bam are definitely living in the front row of life!
