⇝First off I want to thank Paula Stokes for making sure I received an arc of this personally ⇜
I feel that Ferocious rocked for a second/final book. It's well paced, action packed, and never boring. In my review for Vicarious I said this is a toned down not-quite-so-violent Kill Bill meets Strange Days, and this is true for the second book too…just less Strange Days and more Pretty Girl-13, which is another story about a girl with DID. It also has the added bonus of Jesse and Winter's romance…so sweet and blended in seamlessly with all the action going on.
This begins right where book 1 left off…and has Winter more than ready to get her revenge on Kyung for everything he has done to her family. Once the setting changes to Seoul, everything ratchets up a notch. The food, people and culture descriptions, are so well researched I felt like I was there myself.
Oh yeah...one more thing...this duo would make an excellent movie or movies.
