Reviews for Bullet
Bullet has a suprising amount of immediacy and tension especially since most of it takes place within the confines of the Circus. It tips wildly between overt lust and barely contained violence though very little action happens.
Bullet is character driven with the main characters contemplating the ramifications of the power they have, want or need, and even lack. Asher is the catalyst for an exploration of the power within the numerous relationships -though this thread remains pretty unresolved. Richard is finally accepting responsibility for his own power in his pack and as a point of the Anita/Jean Claude triumvirate. Most importantly in terms of the series, Anita is finally coming to grips with both the amount of power she wields and the nature of it. There is an interesting scene as she sits in the kitchen after her session in the gym where her own contribution to the instability of the power finally seems to sink in. I admire and understand Anita's attempt to be true to her own principles but she has been doing so blindly without recognizing the long term results - Haven being a case in point. I sincerely hope that this change in Anita strengthens in the next installment and she doesn't revert to the angst over her sexual strength.
Bullet is obviously a setup for the next book I am assuming it will be quite a showdown and I am looking forward to it. by Shelley Cusbert
