I just told Charlie that Jaxson is Matt and Willa's son and got a big "Cool!" Now, from your average person, that's not much. From my consistently stoic husband, that's the equivalent of me jumping up and down over a new Ed Sheeran song.
Chapter 1 I have already wanted to cry AND laugh.But Bash telling Jaxon that Willa made him promise not to tell and that "Your mom is scary" had me laughing out loud like a hyena. OMG.
I understand completely, I alternated crying, laughing, and just kind of going aww at all the little touches TS put into this story. I don't know how far you are but the last couple of chapters just killed me. So many memories, so many old friends.
I did a fast read through because I had to know how it ended except for Clinton. And I read that, and I could see him standing there, and the waterworks just went whoosh and I cried. Which, it wasn't even what Clinton was doing....it was just seeing him again. And knowing he was OK. Or, as OK as Clinton was ever going to be. And that he was still with his happy mate and not needing to masturbate.
Omg!The happy mate, don't have to masturbate comment had me laughing myself to tears!I've missed Clinton so much!
Loved that one, too! Gave it a nice yellow highlight (yellow for funny :) ).
Omg. Clinton soothes my soul I found out today. When I read his part, I was overcome with a calm feeling. It was perfect. I'm actually rereading his story right now. ❤
Anna is Willa reincarnate!! And another Almost Alpha. She is going to drive Ben crazy.
I thought the exact thing! Willa gets a badass DIL,just like herself!
Yessss. I loved this so much!
I thought the same thing!!
They say sons usually choose someone that reminds them of their mother....😊
So much yes in the entire book the reunion with everyone was so fun! I could see it all playing out in my head <3
Oh! AND beaston saving Anna? AND Ana and Anna!? AND AND AND THE NEW 1010!?
Yasss!!! I totally agree, poor Ben. Snort*
Omg 1st I love that Clinton hasn't changed, Anna is just like Willa �� Beaston is still the cutest.. Willa rulez and willa and Matt had twinssss!!! I hope we can see jathan on the future books and I love Barret the murder kitty already can't wait for next book ��
Aw my Lawd! I just finished it and I have to tell you I think I have a new favorite crew. It has been the Grey Backs forever but now I am not so sure. I just freaking loved everything. Also from now on I shall be calling any peni that I make reference to, Maximus.
Loved the new book. All the details and seeing the old crew. I tried to savor it..like read it slow...make it last....sigh....I read it all last night. I think I am going to love love love this new series.
I did my fast read yesterday and will definitely do a slower really read this weekend. I am so, so in love! There are so many possibilities right now my brain is fritzing out. I love that Anna got busted wearing cotton comfies!!
Got up at 5 am to read this extraordinary book. Tera Shanley, T.S.Joyce you are a fantastic writer with a way of weaving funny, sad, serious and downright violent all in the life of these people, shifters we all love.When Jax sat on his bed in the motel I wondered if you thought of the song Should I Stay or Should I Go? by The Clash? I thought about the many things that members of the Trailer Park have been posting lately (me included) and thought about the intuition of the collective. We have been posting screen shots of 10:10 a lot, there have been numerous post of the trailer and a few had the words Home Sweet Home even mine posted last night. Fan art and now I understand your comments about her intuition. One of the last things I posted last night was a mouse eating spaghetti and OMG there was the huge testicular Nards.I am all over the place because this book was huge! Tying all these people we love was so right. Big, bad Beaston always trying to save innocents saying I'm sorry with a replica of 1010. Tears, sniffling, tears and T it is all your fault. You draw us in writing these characters that we come to love.I know I will read this again in a few days and pick up more little things you put in each book. Like the dandelion, how sweet and the reference of rising like the phoenix these little things make you and your stories so unique.Shout out to all the crews in Damon's Mountains it was so nice visiting with you again.#wormy,wormy #Maximusrules, #Willarules
The Nards reference and then the introduction of the new 1010 broke me. Once a mouse was mentioned I begin to hold my breath. Beaston's gift and telling Jaxon and Anna that the mountains didn't have magic yet sent chills through me. His apology made me cry. I loved the way his Ana stayed feathered, they were happy together. What a beautiful example of how two "broken" people became the people that they were meant to be. I couldn't love Beaston more. (As an aside, Bash's pizza roll dream made me laugh so loud that I snorted.)
<3 Murder Kitty
Soft kitty, murder kitty, Little ball of terrorSpotted kitty, Jax's kitty,Purr, Purr, Purr
Awwwwww.... I love that! Deserves a meme! :) :) :)
Love the poem Rox!
I love murder kitty already <3 he is soo funny too
One of the funniest points of the story for me was that Bash had a dream about pizza rolls.(I want his apron.) My man Beaston once again blew me away. When he was speaking to Anna and Jaxon while his Ana stayed in her bird form meant alot.She always knows what he needs. Beaston was (happy for Beaston) as was his Ana. My heart fluttered reading that. As mentioned before, Nards had me perk up. The fact that Beaston thought that he had to apologize literally made me cry. So Beaston. I always know 1010 is everywhere but for Beaston to painstakingly create a new 1010 (with original parts) broke me. I sobbed so hard and for so long. I have new thoughts about 1010 now. The creation of the new 1010 really defined what 1010 actually means to me. What it means to the crews. It is much much more than I ever imagined. For a lack of a better to say it, it is beyond a physical building. It is a truly universal concept. The relationship between Jaxon and Jathan is what I would believe it could be with how Jaxon and Titan are. BTW, a bear named Titan, frecking awesome. As I read it a thought came to me is that life often shows us that we are members of or occasionally visit a C-Team. I'd be proud to be on one. A last thought is that we all possibly have varying degrees of Willa/Anna in us. I am going to look for mine. #willaisabusinesswoman #shedevilrocks #IknewIlovedcats #Iamreallyagrizzly #ClintonisOK #Iamagreyback
Well the book made me cry and reading about 1010 again in your review did it again. I agree there is magic for our crew with 1010. I believe it is what links us all together and why our trailer park is a great crew. Thanks.
yep,clinton got me again!!!!
I just finished! Loved it! Is there any info on the cover model of the next book? He doesn't look familiar.
Right now, he is a mystery according to Alpha.
Ohhhh what a perfect book. This one shook me up. It was beautifully unexpected. Clinton still being Clinton made me happy cry. Breaston being beaston... let me explain why he got me so hard in this book..He once said (also his boy) he don't try to save people in his visions bc sometimes they still come true. So for him to go out, and still try and stop him from hurtling Annalise. Man. And for him to fight and kill him to avenge her. Omgosh guys. Beaston just showed the world why he has my heart forever. And his Ana staying bird form, and just being supportive of her mate. Gahhh. WHAT A PERFECT ENDING.
Okay I just got to shares!!! The part between Anna and jax where she goes here wormy wormy?? I started laughing so hard my hubby asked what did that lady write now. I read the scene and he just face palmed. We were I. Bed and he was cuddled up behind me reading news onhis phone. I kept a straight face and said here wormy wormy. He dropped his phone and just stared at me. Omg the look on his face was priceless!!!! And tonight we were playing a. Part game and o said out of the blue. Here wormy wormy. He face palmed and said why did you remember that? Omg way toFunny
Doing my re-read...ummm....did anyone else notice that Brody's last name is Brackeen just like the asshole IESA guy from Boarlander Silverback?
Didn't notice that, good catch.
Finn Brackeen was totally anti-shifter....what if it's because this is a relative?
Probably a good chance, you know how T's mind works.
Rox I knew it! I kept thinking that last name was so familar and had to be one of the bad guys names and couldn't remember which one.
Ugh. I am so not good with finding eggs. OMG. Can you imagine? What a discovery Rox.
I knew that name sounded familiar! Great catch!!!
I am so horrible with names. I never would have caught that.
New 1010# New Nards# A Kitty who is a Clinton Clone# Willa Junior# Just so much more OMG just so amazing## <3 <3
"Shifting here like that will get you spankings" bawhahahaha. Love this crew!!!
I love this book so much I did a fast read now I have to do a slow one to see everything i missed.
Another thing I noticed last night: Jax said that Willa was currently the only female second in any crew. What happened to Audrey?
Good question. When everyone e shifts, she mentions bears and boars and gorillas but no tigers. I'm reall hoping that Audrey is ok, and maybe second in the Boarlander just went to someone's kid or something. :-(
She also mentioned a gorilla with a bear and to me that felt very specific.
Yep! A huge Silverback and a Chestnut Bear. We know who they are. 😊 I was hoping for a few more fur babies though..,
Oh yeah ..I wonder. I love Audrey.
