The rest of the werewolf pack might consider Aric Connor to be omniscient and destined to save the world when evil returns to claim it. But for the most part, fifteen-year-old Aric ignores the confirmations of his powers, taking everything in stride until he meets her.
Celia Wird wasn’t supposed to awaken naked in the mountains of Colorado, not when she was just stalking her prey in a filthy alley several states away. She especially wasn’t supposed to meet Aric, the handsome werewolf who comes to her aid.
As a supernatural tasked with protecting the earth, Aric sympathizes with Celia’s dangerous situation. He’s also struck by her beauty and kindness. Yet, as much as Aric welcomes Celia, her arrival isn’t a peaceful one.
Dark forces stir in Celia’s presence, resolute on killing her. Aric and his inner beast are adamant about keeping Celia safe and with them. But there's a time and a place for love, and Aric and Celia might not survive long enough to find it.
Gone Hunting is my first foray into the Weird Girls series. It is being published after the 8 books of the series. I thought it would give me a peek at a series I have always wanted to read.
I enjoyed being introduced to the world and characters. Celia and her sisters fascinate me with their situation and powers. Aric and his friends are also not the typical weres. As with much of this author’s work, there is a strong sense of family, friend connections and caring.
However, Celia and Aric are young. Aric is 15 and this has a very young adult feel which is difficult for me. There is some of the expected maturity level for this age. Insta-love or mates is also an aspect but thankfully there isn’t much focus on insta-lust. The changes in time period are likely easier for those knowing the overall story arc.
I see huge potential for loving this series and still intend to read them all. I do think I might have enjoyed this more with having already read the series. Gone Hunting is a nice vignette into the past with a view of Aric’s parents and how he met Celia.
