Harry of A Dude reads PNR fame for The Book Smugglers says:
I love that Jaid is vulnerable. I love the fact that she is smart-ass, not kick-ass. She doesn’t do the whole super ninja vixen. No leather pants and favorite blades for this chick. She’s nerdy and the Un-Indiana Jones of the faculty. Brilliant characterization, right there. Pure gold. It makes Jaid stand out from all the other leading females in the genre. I also can honestly say that Jaid’s the strong woman urban fantasy and paranormal romance has been boasting with. She’s not sure she will win and she is mortified to venture, but she does. She falls down and picks herself up, because the situation demands it. That’s what I call bravery and perseverance.
Of course there were a few parts he didn’t like. Names. (Oh, you know the drama we already went through over the names, right?) Shapeshifter. Yes, the Maya did believe that the most powerful shamans could actually transform into the sacred jaguar. He also thought it ended too happily. Considering the version I had originally written [Everybody dies. The end.], I can only smile.
