New NR Review

5.0 out of 5 stars POP ROCKS MEETS RED BULL - spastic, frantic trip of a lifetime!, October 28, 2014
By fj "gaelicrig"
This review is from: New Regime (Rune Alexander Book 5) (Kindle Edition)

"Holy crap on a cracker!! I need an herbal tea(or shot of Jameson) just to calm my nerves from the roller coaster ride this book took me on!

The action, as anticipated, is non stop. Wonderfully twisted story lines and underlying plot development that takes the reader into the world of the Shiv Crew as expected from Cane.

There are several tangent story lines that are not finished, I freakin' love that about these books - I crave more like the Berserker craves Rune. If you have not read the other books...what the heck is your problem? All para/urban fantasy fans need to add these to their stockpile.

In this book there is a sense that Rune is losing control of her emotions and her monster. She is even warned by Gunnar that no matter what, she is needed. Owen, that boy bothers me - sometimes in a good way and other times I want him out of Shiv Crew. Levi needs saving, I love those brothers! And Jack, please, please give him something/someone good!

The ending, mother puss bucket - really??!! Poor Rune, what hasn't happened to her?! I have no idea how she gets out of bed each morning because I would never make it through 15 minutes of her life. (Umm, unless that was with Strad - then make it 30 minutes :) )

In this book, the violence is extreme and yet it is tempered by the loyalty of the crew family - complete and utter acceptance no matter what. That is what makes these stories so poignant, the love the crew has for Rune is amazing, she gives each one of them an "out" and yet they stick by her and she sticks by them. Without that, the books would just be another set of vamp/demon/lycan slasher books. Bring on book 6!"
FJ, thank you so much for yet another wonderful review. If you read this, please send me an email. I'd love to say hi! <3
