Title: The Undoing
Author: Shelly Laurenston
Series: Call of Crows #2
Everyone thinks Jace Berisha is shy and antisocial but they couldn’t be further from the truth. She isn’t shy, she just doesn’t like small talk and socializing with most people. When she is tasked with translating for the Protectors she finds herself surrounded by people who understand her, especially Ski Eriksen.
Like almost all of Laurenston’s books, this was another action packed adventure with some kickass characters. Jace was a wonderful heroine who has finally found her place in the world. She really bloomed and opened up to everyone in this book, while also being her antisocial self. I really related with Jace because I enjoyed being around people but usually prefer to observe instead of interact. Her past was heartbreaking but it really made her a strong, and deadly, woman in her second life.
Ski was a wonderful and supportive hero. He never pushed Jace and understood her like no other man had before. I really enjoyed getting to know the Protectors and their dedication to learning. I really connected to their drive to protect and preserve books and the constant need to self-educate. They were great side characters and I want to know more about them.
I really enjoyed the action in this one. The battles were great and the enemy was a very tricky one. So no complaints there. My absolute favorite thing about this series though is the friendships and found family elements. I love the friendship between Kara, Jace and Erin and the other Crows. You can really feel the bond between all the women and it is wonderful. I can’t get enough of this series with its blend of action, romance, and friendship.
