Shattered Circle (Persephone Alcmedi #6) by Linda Robertson

After her werewolf boyfriend, Johnny, tried to kill her, Persephone Alcmedi finds herself in the comforting arms of powerful vampire Menessos. She’s trying to sort out her feelings for the two men, but not even Seph is above the confusion of tangled emotions. All Johnny wants to do is mend their relationship and reveal the life-altering news he’s recently received, but his new responsibilities as the werewolf king take up most of his time.

Does this mean Menessos can finally make his move?

Meanwhile, unknown to Seph, her beloved foster daughter, Beverley, has been playing with a magical artifact and making dubious friends on the other side. When Beverley disappears, Seph must seek help from a supernatural being so potent that even Menessos fears him...and such aid always comes with a very steep price.
Eep! I see that the last book was leading us up to this one! All that confusion continues in this book and it is all captivating! We also get to find out who one of the characters introduced to us in the last book really is! Now I need to know what will happen next! *bounces up and down*

We also get multiple POV in this book. It's not confusing and it helps bring the story into full understanding. However, the most interesting parts were Persephone's adventure and when it would switch POVs I would want to yell. At the same time you wanted to know what was happening so you are kept in the loop. Yea, I can say that switch also ramped up the anticipation of what was going on and how Seph was going to get out of her predicaments.

Oooohhhh~ I wanna tell who Creepy is, but I can't spoil it!
*tapes mouth and fingers shut*
*whines*

I have to say I do like the ending and yet I didn't. I love how it came about, but it was a bit too sweet for me in the end. Still, I did like the idea of it. Even so, I have to say it was one huge adventurous ride.

I give this book 4 1/2 stars and I can't wait for the next installment. I recommend this whole series. I recommend someone read this series and talk to me about it so I don't spoil it for anyone else! I also recommend it to those looking for a different and fun UF. As I said before in other reviews, there is a triangle, but it is worked into the story so this one does make sense as to why it is there.
I received this book from Pocket books and no compensation for my review was given.

  5. Ummmmm Johnny tried to kill her? WHAT? That is definitely grounds for immediate eviction from the harem. HOW COULD HE MELISSA! Clearly I need to read and find out. I love that this series continues to get such high ratings from you even though we're on book 6. Love a series that doesn't start to get stagnant and boring!
