I loved every minute of this bookShanti and Cayan may have won the respect of the Shadow people and added some incredibly skilled new fighters to their army because of it but the real battle is only just beginning and it s now time to face the Hunter once While they ve been busy on the island the Hunter has been getting into position and now he s taken Cayan s city by force and is using the people Shanti and Cayan care about to force them into doing what he wants Neither of them are characters who will give up without a fight but now they re in the difficult position of trying to defeat their enemy without getting an entire city full of hostages caught in the crossfireAs much as I love this series I ve always been than a little irritated by the attitude of the guys in Cayan s army They think of women as the weaker sex who need to be coddled and protected and I ve never liked that about them Shanti has been working hard to change their opinion and while they may have finally realised that she is as strong as the best of them the fact she s constantly wiping the floor with them has probably helped with that they still think of the women from their own city as pretty much helpless Sometimes it can be an advantage when women are underestimated though and in this case the Hunter is making the same mistake as Cayan s army always has The city is under siege but it s only really the men who have been imprisoned and who are being closely monitored The Women s Circle have been staying under the radar but secretly plotting and have put plans in place to rescue their men folk I absolutely loved seeing Shanti and the Women s Circle in action these ladies are than capable of protecting their own and they prove it a thousand times over Cayan and the rest of the men are Going To Have No Choice But To to have no choice but to that now and I m really looking forward to seeing how this changes the dynamics as the series continuesInvasion is full of action the plot pretty much never allows ou time to breathe because the characters are going from one battle to the next and facing up against difficult odds than ever We also get to meet a whole group of new characters not only are we getting to learn about the Shadow warriors but we finally get the chance to meet some of the people from Shanti s homeland I ll admit I was confused at first because the opening chapter starts from the point of view of a completely new set of characters but once I realised what was going on I was really excited at the chance to learn about where Shanti came from and to see her through the eyes of her people I was also slightly disappointed that we didn t see of Shanti and Cayan working together but the I think about it the I m actually pleased about it it s good to see that even though they re a couple they re not joined at the hip and that they are still going to play to their strengths even if that means working separately for a whileI m absolutely loving this series and I can t wait for the next book please write uickly Ms Breene please please write uicklyBuddy read with the MacHalos 5 Stars This read is action packed with suspenseful nail biting moments We watch as our beloved Shanti and Cayan battle with the feared Hunter in order to save their city As the pending battle looms we see Shanti s people.

as they manipulate and control the enemy I truly enjoyed getting to know these extraordinary women and watch them demonstrate theirthey manipulate and control the enemy I truly enjoyed getting to know these extraordinary women and watch them demonstrate their and abilities protecting their people As the sure to be climactic ending draws near we are further entrenched with these uniue and fascinating characters in their uest for justice and freedom Highly anticipating the next read 25 starsI m giving up on this series There are a lot of great things I like about this book and the series but it is not coming together for me I also haven t been able to get into the narrator s style in her audiobook presentation of the storyThe strong points for me are the cast of characters Sanders is still my favorite character and perhaps Shanti s bastard of a horse The weakness IMO is that the storyline has gone flat While there are new elements in this story it still seems repetitive The result for me at least is cartoonish dialog and actionThe book and series has some explicit sex scenes and profanity I think though these books are probaly better suited to a oung adult audience Now usually I would complain about the need for six books when all the characters seem to do is travel cut down the traveling and write the damn story I d say Usually Well not today not today I am so loving this series every journey is an experience in it self when If an Elephant Went to School you think its just normal foes think again I love Shanti and Cayan love the Honor Guard and the Commanders I am loving everyone at this point It s so sad the conclusion is near but I can t wait I was worried this would suck but it was mostly uick wit and action and coolness Shanti is still probably my spirit animal Cayan is still my dreamboat imaginary boyfriend That s as much of a review asou are getting This was another MacHalo buddy read and the MacHalos are the bee s knees This was the best book of the series way better then 2 3 and just slightly better then 1 The story came from multiple POV which was interesting and had a clear goal to win back the city and take down The Hunter I m looking forward to the final 2 books of the series to see how it ends and if and how Shanti can eever be integrated into society 4 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks because we all love kick ass warrior women Shanti is already in the thick of it She s still alive and from what I can tell she s fighting in the dirty underhanded way only she could make glamorous So once again this was very fun funny and entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed myself reading it I love the perfect size of the books since they are just long enough to make Morse Code for Radio Amateurs you care and short enough not to giveou any reason to get tired of it Shanti kicked ass once again just as we have grown to expect form her but we did not get much character growth by any of the characters we have grown to care about through the series Yes it is war and es they have to infiltrate their taken over by the Enemy City But You city but ou think some of the interpersonal issues would be solved too I guess there isn t much time to decide if Linux Networking Cookbook you are going to commit to a relationship with a manou are clearly in love with while someone is trying to capture Marcus Garvey you and turnou into a breeding mare for the Supreme Being while killing most of our friends although we could always hope I guess Fate has intervened plenty up to now for the two parties involved not.
