“It’s still a good story. But I lost that love and spark.” ~Under the Covers
Wow, I’m not quite sure where to start with what I want to say…. I love Kitty Norville. She’s always been a fresh change in a sea where the paranormal series blend together as they always have the same thing to say. The books in this series are always original in plot and there is usually an interconnected storyline or bad guy that drives them forward. That being said, I may just be done reading it.
I’ll try to explain why. Kitty lost the spark for me. In the past few books we haven’t gotten much in the way of changing of Kitty’s character. Yes, she’s the Alpha of her Pack. Yes, she’s learning to deal with the dangers she faces, but at the core she’s still a bit of a cynic and carries on the same way that she would’ve a few books back. I am not seeing the character growth.
Then there’s Cormac. I’ve seen his characters morph and change into this weird thing that now is really also a witch who lives in his body. I used to LOVE him. And I can’t find it in me to love him anymore.
As much as this story was still fresh and interesting, what with Kitty having to go to the Underworld and not knowing if she would make it out alive… I was sadly uninterested. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a good story. But I lost that love and spark. I feel like maybe it’s time to give this series a conclusion or a new twist.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
