I really enjoy this series, even with the dreaded paranormal romantic angle. The story is still about Jane's contracted mission and the ~adventures~ therein, which is the most important to me. The added Cherokee language "lessons" are a lot of fun, though I am sure I butcher the pronunciation.
The biggest thing that kept this from a four star for me is the amount of recaps throughout the whole novel. I'm not sure if this was an editorial or authorial decision, but I feel that if you're writing a series, you can assume your readers have read the previous books. If I don't remember an important point, the onus is on me
to pay more attention. The recaps themselves were so numerous and so familiar, they seemed like they were copy/pasted between novels.
