This book was one sidelong glance after another. Does he like me? Does she like me? Come on, Charles. You are over 200 years old. Act your age!However, one thing I really appreciate about this and the Mercy Thompson books is how Patricia Briggs examines the effects of sexual assault. She never gives it a simple or quick solution. Noelle keeps hinting about BIG things happening in this series that affect the Mercy world so I'll keep reading, especially with [b:Frost Burned|11035657|Frost Burned (Mercedes Thompson, #7)|Patricia Briggs|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344299887s/11035657.jpg|15955708] coming out soon....Uh, I mean after I do my Infinite Jest readalong reading.
