Review: The Thing About Weres (Mystwalker #2) by Leigh Evans


In the never-ending saga that is my love-hate relationship with Robson Trowbridge, I, half-Were Hedi Peacock, have had a change of heart. Ever since I shoved Trowbridge through the Gates of Merenwyn, I’ve been the leader of the pack—hard to believe, right? The thing is: I’m half-Fae. So even though my Were side is ready to heed the call of the wild, the other part of me is desperate to take flight. And much as it pains me to admit it, life without Trowbridge is really starting to were me down…


To make matters worse, the wolves of Creemore want my blood—and the North American Council of Weres wants me dead. So I’m just counting the days until Trowbridge returns from the other realm…and comes to my brave rescue…and becomes my alpha mate. Wishful thinking? Of course it is. But given all the mess I’ve been through already, what’s the harm in doing a little bit of daisy-plucking? Besides, Trowbridge owes me bigtime. A girl can dream.

When I started this book I was just not in the mood to read it. I wasn’t in the mood to read anything. I can say even though I was not in the mood to read, it was able to suck me in to the story.

Due to the events at the end of the last book Hedi is now Alpha by proxy of the Creemore wolves and I am surprised that she survived as long as she did. First of all in this story Hedi did not seem to be quite as strong of a character as she was when Trowbridge was around. She is whiny and to wrapped up in her own problems to look at the pack and see that it was getting divided. However she did have a lot thrown at her in a short amount of time but leaders have to stay strong and focused. By the end of the book  Hedi seems to be getting back to herself.

There didn’t seem to be quite as much action in this story as the last one had but it did pick up more towards the end. There were several surprises in the storyline though that I did not see coming including a family member Hedi did not know existed showing up. I did enjoy meeting Hedi’s twin Lexi. He sounds like he has had a hard life but I think he can straighten himself out. I am holding out for him.

The ending really left me wanting to hurry up and read the next one. I want to find out what happens with the Black Mage and her brother. Also I want to know what is going to happen with her being a Mystwalker. I am hopeful that Hedi and Trowbridge can hold it together and keep the pack safe as well as help with the Raha’ells.  All in all this was a good, solid second book to the series and I look forward to continuing with the story.
