Strange Trouble

"Son. Of. A. Bitch!
Laken Cane could write the ingredients for Spam and I'd pay to read it!
From literally page one, book 3 in the saga of Rune Alexander and her remarkable Crew, was one of the most brutal roller coaster rides of turmoil and emotion I've ever been on!
I just want to help Rune main-line whiskey and fast!
This series gets better...and harder to heal from...with every chapter. I don't know where we're headed and that kills me! My heart was torn apart so many times in this book that I don't know how I'll stand waiting for book 4.
Absolutely amazing!"

Strange Trouble Review

Five Stars

I have become personally and emotionally way to involved with this series! There I said it. I'm not ashamed. It's always an awesome experience when you read WORDS on a page, no pictures, no voices, totally fictional and by the end you have to be convinced they AREN'T REAL. Who am I kidding? They are real. And I am an emotional wreck! Ms. Cane, Where is my next book?? I need it!

Seriously, I am very impressed with this author and the way she captivates my attention. There is nothing that compares to a book so good nothing else gets done until it's finished.
I highly recommend this series to women and I really think more men should be checking them out before they hit the big screen!

I could go on and on about this book and its predecessors but once I get started I will give far too much away! I think every reader deserves the same emotional impact I had. book please!! There are things I need to know! Are you listening, Laken?? ~Surgen Amazon review

Blood and Bite, book #2

First Review for Strange Trouble

Five Stars
Reviewer: Humanitysdarkerside 

Bloody hell. Give the poor girl a break. Laken Cane drives her main character, Rune Alexander, hard. And can she write! All of that exquisitely described pain and anguish. Holy horror of a cow! What a life our heroine leads.

Rune Alexander fills me with compassion. I want to crawl into "Strange Trouble" and somehow comfort her, to let her know that she is OK as she is. My own ghost pain is awakened, and I want to tell her that things will get better. But I would be lying by saying that because Ms. Cane is a cruel mistress for the Shiv Crew.

The "Rune Alexander" series is a bleak and dark series. There aren't a great deal of happy moments. Well, there are plenty of happy moments, but that is what they are. Moments. Then Rune and the gang is ripped back into the terror and ache of having to be the "good guys" in spite of all of the persecution and loss. Yet Ms. Cane's writing makes it all endurable.

The vampires, zombies and werewolves of the "Rune Alexander" series are not the fluffy ones that we sometimes see in literature today. These are the good, old-fashioned kind. The ones that were told stories about around the fires while night turned into darkest dark and became all the more frightening because we could no see the world.

As usual, I have a couple of favorite moments. Rune's gift to Ellie - perfect. That put a huge smile on my face. Rune advising Raze about relationships - pot/kettle much? The two episodes with the obsidian sword. Shad and Fie at the hospital - incredibly cute. The monster's comment: What will you do? ... Hurt me? And finally Ms. Cane's description of Damascus - whew that lady needs to work on her charm.

Laken Cane has kept the promise of "Shiv Crew". Her writing has been riveting, tense and tight through all three novels.
