The Amber Feature: Discussing Skinwalker

Saturday, February 23, 2013

We loved this feature so much, we brought it back! But better! So what we're doing is having an informal (obviously) joint discussion/interview/review with books that we read around the same time. This is what we're here for, right? To talk books! So let's get talking..

Today's Book Is:

Skinwalker by Faythe Hunter

Amber I's turn to ask some questions..

Amber I: If I didn't already read this book would you recommend it to me?
-You know, I really would. I thought it was interesting and I am planning on reading on in the series. Let's just be honest here though, you're the one that recommends me books..not the other way around.

Amber I: I know if I didn't hear such awesome things about this series, I might have quit it in the beginning did you feel that way? I just found it a bit slow or hard to get into in the beginning.
- I didn't really hear anything from anyone about this book, so I think I would have. I didn't really think it was that slow, I think she just had a lot of investigating and what not to do.

Amber I: How do you like how her beast is connected to her?
- I think it's really weird but different which I like.When we find out how it happened, I was kinda shocked. I didn't see that coming and I wonder how that's going to affect their relationship in the future.

Amber I: As far as love interest goes do you have any one in particular for Jane?
- Bruiser! I really liked him. I thought he was funny, had a good personality, and for some reason I think he's super hot.
Amber I: Do you plan on continuing the series?
- Definitely! They kind of left us with a teaser at the end of this book and I definitely want to know what happens next.

Amber I: What did you rate this book and why ?
- I gave it 4 stars. I really liked this book, it was interesting and funny. It kept me guessing and I really love Jane's attitude and bad ass persona. I want to know what happens next. There were some iffy parts in the beginning otherwise it would have probably been a 5. 

Amber R's turn to ask some questions..

Amber R: Do you see Jane getting with any of the mens in this first book?
-I really liked Bruiser. And I must say some times I really liked Leo too. He had that sexy vampire vibe going on. My least favorite was Rick. I was just not feeling him. 

Amber R: What do you think about the little job offer Jane got at the end of the book?
- I loved the ending because it really opens this series up to a whole bunch of awesomeness!

Amber R: When did you start getting into the book? Was there a turning point where you were like, this book is kinda awesome?
- I am not sure when I started getting into this book but I do know that is was a little slow for me in the beginning. Maybe it was once Leo and Bruiser where looking more like an actual possible romance might happen with Jane. You know me, if I scent some romance coming on I am all on that.

Amber R: What did you think of the relationship between Beast and Jane? Did you think it was odd how they are two separate entities?
-I thought it was really odd. I have seen other shifters talk about their beast separately but the way Jane and her beast are separate is just completely different.  I really liked that. Plus when she is having those inner monologues there really is someone there to answer her back. It take me a little bit to come around to the way her beasts talks. But I am good with it now.

Amber R: What is your opinion on the rogue vamp terrorizing the town? He's gross, right?
- You know I was pretty sure when we found out who the rogue was it was going to be someone I suspected. Oh I had a few suspicions but I am pleasantly surprised at who it turned out to be. And yes the rogue is gross. I really loved how this book portrayed that aspect of the vampire life too.

Amber R: How do you feel about all the nicknames she gave everyone? I personally thought it was funny.. but I'm an easy laugh.
-Hey you know me with nicknames, I love them. Sometimes when she would actually use their real name I would get confused. I like the nicknames and I see why she uses them. 


  1. Great feature! I love this series. I really like how clues to Jane's past are slowly being unveiled as the series goes on. Honestly, she's one of my favorite UF heroines.

  2. I LOVED this book and YES to Bruiser. This series is great on audio if you're into them you should check it out.
    Skinwalker made it to my Top 2013 read list.

  3. I skimmed because I have this book and I have yet to read it. It came highly recommended too and now that I'm on an awesomesauce PNR kick, I want to squeeze this in and read it.

  4. I really liked this book too, I love the vampire hunter thing, and her inner beast is very unique- odd to get used to, but I like things that are different and make you think a bit. I've read (okay, listened) too the first 2 books, getting ready to read book 3 soon. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the next book,
    Book Savvy Babe

  5. We will probably read the next book in March. This book did take me a little bit to get into it, but by the end I was really enjoying it.
