This was one of those titles I had to doggedly force myself to finish. To Adrian's credit, the group of Breed Warriors she has created are sexy, engrossing characters and certainly alpha Breed Warrior Lucan Thorne is seductive and interesting. The compound where they live is cool, there's a very touching burial description, and for the most part there's a good sense of each warrior's individual personality. That said, it was embarrassing to read much of the warrior's dialogue between each other reduced to cliche fraternity speak, bumping fists and issuing statements like, "Game on!", "F--k yea!", "Got your back 'bro". Adrian doesn't make it clear why it's such a bad idea to mate with a "breedmate" such as Gabrielle Maxwell. Yet, I did force myself to stay with it since there is a good story there under her uneven writing and there are tender moments between Lucan and Gabrielle. But then the book tanks again with a pretty lame closing paragraph that abruptly wraps things up. I'm going to pass on the rest of the series, but if you are the dogged and devoted sort, I think Breed Warriors Tegan, Nikolai, Rio, and Dante have potential to be alluring characters.
