Forget Me Not (Mystic Wolves, #2)

Forget Me Not (Mystic Wolves, #2) - Belinda Boring The cover:This is Amber?? If so, I can see why she has no idea why Mason is in love with Darcy. Darcy should be much more prettier than Amber, but I can’t see that.The cover however, I love :).The storyline:This book really surprised me, a lot!It exceeded my expectations to be honest, because I didn’t like the first book, I thought this one too will disappoint me, but it didn’t!The story continues exactly from where the first book left off with Darcy facing the new enemy, Amber. From there, new revelations are discovered as well as new twists, mysteries, new friendships and enemies made.I got to see other sides of the characters (both good and bad sides) and also got the opportunity to know the secondary characters and some of the Pack’s past in the area.What I Liked:- The writing improved a lot and you notice the improve immediately when you start reading from page one. It got smoother and the pace became easier to follow.- I found myself familiar with the characters and their surroundings which helped me enjoy the new plot.- The twists and the amount of action added were very well done.- Less kissing and touching (finally!!) made it possible for the real storyline to develop and for us (who don’t like romance) to enjoy the book more.- I really loved the concept of different and mystical supernatural creatures living together and how Werewolves and Vampires seem to be close friends and allies.- The ending!! What is it with me and cliff hanging endings?! I wouldn’t imagine what happened to happen at all despite the fact that I knew Amber was hiding something.What I didn’t like:- Mainly, one thing, Darcy! Okay, so the author, Belinda, made Darcy act and sound like a complete teenager whenever Mason was around, and Darcy kept saying how much she loved him and that all she wanted was him, and then all of a second, after a brief conversation with Vlad (no not Dracula, but Devlin’s nephew) she begins noticing how handsome Devlin is!! And she starts to act and think in a way that I got embarrassed in her place by just reading it!I thought it was a bad thing for the author to do. This story does not need a love triangle or a stupid protagonist who’s controlled by words and hormones.- What Also bothered me in the book was the repetition of certain words and expressions I almost ripped my eyes out each time I found them again! I want give you examples for two reasons: one, I’ll spoil the book and two, some of those excruciating expressions aren’t suitable for a YA book blog.The characters:Mason: My respect for him grew. He’s a true Alpha and deserves his title. He keeps everyone organized and thinking in the right direction no matter what. Despite what he goes through in this book, he fights it fairly, honestly and intelligently.Darcy: She’s a pain in the head. Mason was right when he said “Trouble is her middle name” because it is! Wherever she goes trouble goes with her, however, she showed a huge amount of will power and strength, an ability to keep calm when needed and her true loyalty and dedication to do whatever it takes to keep her Pack safe. I admire that.Daniel: A very trust worthy second in command guy. A big brother and best friend to both Mason and Daniel. He shows support and courage throughout the book. Daniel is the best friend everyone needs.Devlin: Is the type of best friend I want. He’s a very honorable and trust worthy vampire who loves Darcy as a friend or more and would do anything to keep her safe (reminds me of Elijah actually from The Vampire Diaries). He’s also a very trust worthy friend of Mason’s. He played a great role in this book and will (as I suspect) in the next sequel, Tempting fate.Vivien: A very powerful witch who’s also a friend of Mason, Darcy and her mother. She’s very protective of her friends and doesn’t show her emotions most of the time.Amber: Ah, I was going to skip over her because I don’t won’t to spoil the review, but I’ll try to speak of her without doing so, shall I? Amber in an old friend and crush of Mason. She, along with her father, where seeking power by making Mason mate with her. but when things got clear and Mason got to see the real her (thanks to Daniel) he canceled the mating ritual. Since then, which was five years ago from the date of the book, she’s been trying so badly to get back to Mason and failed miserably each time. But when she gets back this time, she comes prepared and determined to eradicate Darcy and win Mason to her side forever. This is what Forget Me Not is all about. So yes, Amber is the villain in here and you won’t be disappointed with what she’s got up her sleeve.Other characters worth mentioning are: Vlad, Devlin’s nephew and newborn. Zane, the Vampire King, and The Fates.Favorite quotes:Surprisingly so, I have many favorite quotes, but as usual here are three random ones :).I hadn’t been to visit Devlin since his young nephew had moved in, and when I’d gone exploring through the different rooms to see if anything had changed, I wasn’t prepared for the massive black coffin resting on a makeshift platform displayed in the center of the bedroom. --- Chapter 15.Take her for instance.” He paused long enough to look at the television screen. “Buffy loves Angel, but then along comes Spike. Two different vampires, and she winds up loving them both. I read the fan pages all over the internet, these two males have large followings, but when I assume their personalities, I get nothing. --- Chapter 17.I loved everything about Devlin’s study, and it was probably one of my favorite places in the house. Floor to ceiling bookshelves with volume after volume of books covered most of the walls, and the whole room had a warm, comfortable feel to it. --- Chapter 18.Conclusion:This book was good.I could see why I could love it, it has a unique storyline and writing style with plenty of twists and action.I want the third installment in the series, Tempting Fate, now!
