    1. The brilliant second in the Fangborn Series! When I received Pack of Strays”  from Netgalley I didn’t realize that this was actually the second book in the “Fangborn” series. I had heard very good things about “Fangborn” on-line at , and I was excited to try it. However, finding this was the second, well, what could I do? I ran over to and grabbed the first, Seven Kinds of Hell. What can I say, but WOW! The first paragraph of my Seven Kinds of Hell review shows how excited I about [...]

    2. **I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 3.5*My Thoughts*Pack of Strays is the second novel in the Fangborn series and the sequel to Seven Kinds of Hell. Zoe Miller, our heroine, is an fledgling archaeologist and a newly revealed Fangborn, a secretive race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles that have dedicated themselves to protecting humanity and erad [...]

    3. Ah joy, love triangles. And sex. Mmphs. I could have lived without either. Another good book in the series. So good that I'm already somewhere in the middle of the third book, which makes writing anything about this one harder to do. Let's see let's see. This book opens with Zoe inside a special government facility. Surrounded by friends and loved ones. And strangers. The strangers are the ones who like poking her with stuff to see what happens when they do that. Things change, her friends and l [...]

    4. There was just too much going on. Between the crazy searching out of the artifacts - and the reason wasn't ever really all that clear (she had the bracelet from Pandora's Box, but there was no reason to keep going; it wasn't giving her any advantage because she couldn't figure out what to do once they were part of her, and didn't like how they were changing her) - and the changing the other characters to fit the plot, this was a disappointing follow-up. The lack of explanation of some things (ho [...]

    5. OMG!!!! I am reeling from how this book ended, I even shouted my dismay out loud!!! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. I NEED to know what happens next!!!It's probably obvious but I adored this book. After I finished listening to the first book I thought it could get any better, any more exciting or any more action packed and boy. I was wrong. This book just surpassed the first one and I am hooked more than ever on this series!!!! There really is so much I can say about this storyli [...]

    6. The story started out good, but soon got way out of control. I couldn't make sense out of who was friend who was foe. What was Zoe trying to accomplish, it was almost like she was trying to gain the power she originally wanted to relinquish from there oppressors. I enjoy a good fantasy but this one I have to give a thumbs down.

    7. Pack of Strays is the 2nd novel in the Fangborn series by Dana Cameron. The Fangborn were first found in a several short stories. Fangborn are vampires, werewolves and oracles who are dedicated to protecting humanity from evil while humanity knows nothing about them. Seven Kinds of Hell was the first novel published in the series. Pack of Strays picks up where the first novel leaves off. Zoe Miller has escaped the clutches of the Theodore Roundtree Group or TRG (a secret US governmental entity) [...]

    8. Mon avis en FrançaisMy ENglish reviewI liked the first book and I was curious to see how the second one would be. I confess that I do not remember in detail the events but we are left here shortly after the end of the first novel. Taking the course of the young woman quest, some memories came back, and all the characters, as well as new ones, are present once again.Having escaped from the hands of those who held her, and after leaving behind her the people she considered closest, Zoe continues [...]

    9. I loved the first book in this series, so I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Pack of Strays.And this book was well worth the wait!Just a couple of pages into the book I was hooked, and if not for my eyes refusing to cooperate at a certain point, I'd have devoured it in one sitting. It's so good!Zoe gets thrown from one dangerous situation in the next. She stumbles upon conspiracies and secrets that have her fighting for survival. Each piece of the puzzle she manages to discover, leads h [...]

    10. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I actually received it months and months ago but didn't download it before it archived, so now I have finally purchased it on and am playing catch up with my review.About 3.5 starsAt the end of the last book, Zoe is reunited with her boyfriend, has made some friends, and is safely ensconced with the TRG. She finally feels like she belongs and can do some good with her growing powers as a Fangb [...]

    11. I was a little lost at the start of the book because it just rushed straight into manic from chapter one and I was rather expecting more of a build-up. The end of the first book ended on a quieter note, I thought (relatively speaking; Zoe had just stealthily escaped from the TRG), so to jump straight into her hunting down bad guys was a little jarring.Actually "jarring" kind of fits for the whole book because we (the reader AND the characters) never get a moment to catch our breaths and nothing [...]

    12. I loved book one of this series so I had to have book two and I am so glad I did!! The world building for this series is freaking fantabulous. Zoe Miller's life is in chaos and it's getting worse. LOL She is learning more about who and what she is, and why things have been happening to her. Around her. And how important she is. to a lot of people in the hectic crazy world she lives in. There's some serious research and knowledge about history and archaeology and places around the world. Last boo [...]

    13. I started Pack of Strays immediately after finishing Seven Kinds of Hell which definitely helped me keep everything straight in my head, because lots on goes on. Zoe is continuing her hunt for the artifacts which start doing something very interesting to her. Friends become enemies and enemies become allies. The action doesn't stop. At no point did I lose track of what was happening with everyone though. (With Dune and the Hobbit books, I was like, Who is this again? Where did they come from? Wh [...]

    14. Are you kidding me? This book was all over the place. It was way too wordy, in places where there's a ton of action I don't need the narrator to be telling me what she's doing - just effing do it already! It was wordy, but at the same time, it was rather discombobulated - even with all the extraneous narration I still had no clue what was going on half the time. And the heroine, Zoe, what a dumba**. She is the most useless hero of all time, all she does is wander around and make ridiculous choic [...]

    15. Pack of Strays was a bit of a directional turn from the first book, Seven Kinds of Hell. While Zoe, our heroine, is still mostly a loner, she picks up a group in this book, including her cousin Danny, as well as Vee, an oracle and Toshi, a vampire who lost his closest Family. I again enjoyed the country-hopping, although there was much less in this book than the first. I found some of this book rather confusing, though. While Zoe doesn't understand what's happening with the "integration" of the [...]

    16. The Story that never endsI think Dana is a great writer, however this story is just not holding my interest enough to need yet another book. It's pretty much reading the main character travel and travel to gather artifacts which her body absorbs. Rinse,Repeat. I just read 2 books in the series, and there isn't much difference between the two. Neither had any form of ending. I enjoy a good series, however I feel each book should stand on it's own merit. I should. not have to buy a 3rd book in hop [...]

    17. With how this one started out it didn't end how I expected at all. It seemed like Zoe was on the run the whole book. She definitely learned a lot about herself, the only thing is that so much of what she learned brought about unanswered questions. For the most part I like the crew that Zoe has surrounded herself with. There were challenges with some of them and I think that Zoe had the right to be angry with one in particular. I don't like how things were left with them, mostly because it seems [...]

    18. After the verve and uniqueness of the first book, this installment of the Fangborn series was a definite let down. Too much happens to Zoe too quickly, with only the sketchiest of explanations: whereas the globe-trotting of Seven Kinds Of Hell felt exotic and fast-paced, everything that happens here just feels rushed and jumbled. While that's an apt mirror for all the chaos our heroine endures, it doesn't make for a pleasant, or even very interesting, read. I'll still give the last novel a try, [...]

    19. I enjoyed the first book and was very excited to read this one. The writing and imagery was amazing. It did however read slow for me in the beginning. I found myself having to fight through the story to get through it. I can see the research that Cameron had to do for this story and those details are my favorite part of her story. The world Cameron created has so much back story, but in this book I think too much of it was being revealed all at once and I found myself overwhelmed. The investment [...]

    20. Colour me disappointed.I had been looking forward to pack of strays after Seven Kinds of Hell had been one of the books I really enjoyed last year. I just found it a mess. Zoe whom I had previously liked as a heroine was verging on the needing a good slap this time round.I wanted to like it, but there was too much going on and I could tell that three quarters of the way through the book that it was heading for the mother of all cliff hangers.No this book didn't work for me at all. Too slow to ge [...]

    21. The second book follows up right after the first one. Zoe is following her visions to find more artifacts. Along the way she once again gathers allies including meeting up wiht her cousin who has taken a job in a city where her vision has led her. She finds out more about how the artifacts are controlling her and how to use them in turn. There is a new villain or at least new to Zoe since she doesn't know everything about being a Fangborn. The pace is pretty quick and things end on top by the en [...]

    22. I haven't read book 1 and, although it isn't really necessary in order to follow the storyline, I wish I had read it first. It just seems like it would have added more depth to the story.Zoe (the main character) is, almost literally, a woman possessed. Artifacts are "calling" to her and she is in physical pain if she does not respond and go to get them.With some "people" (not everyone is human) helping and others wanting her dead, she tries to do just that--get the artifacts.And always the quest [...]

    23. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARCJust like the first book there were many times I was lost while reading and had no idea what was going on even though i reread it. BUt again, it was interesting plot line even though there were a couple of boring sections. It got way better towards the end although I thought she was an idiot for yelling at the Makers. I'm actually waiting to see what comes next. Also I'm team Adam.

    24. Very busy! A lot isn't described properly and is left to the imagination, then se refers to a certain part which was left up to your imagination - as if you were expected to just know how it looked. This happens several times and confused me, but I pushed on. The story is good - great, even. It needs an edit (I see this is only the first publication so understandable) and better descriptions, as it isn't clear whether some things are dream, reality, or places in Zoe's head.

    25. Well written entertaining read well worth the purchase. I like the flow of the plot as well as the twists and turns. The writing is also well edited, making this fun and easy to read. The world building is well done and inventive. The characters are well fleshed out and have good development through the story. I received an evaluation copy in exchange for my honest opinion. No compensation has been or will be received beyond the evaluation copy.

    26. I like the way the author has changed up the vampire, werewolf mythology and added the archaeological aspect to the plot. I thought I had it figured out until the plot twist in the middle when she added a new character. This sent me off in another direction which she promptly destroyed in the last pages of the book. Can't wait for the next in the series. And kitten sausages, that's evil.

    27. If I could, I'd give the story 3.5 stars. The book is very busy, which is good, but there's almost too many characters to remember. I also didn't like how the book ended on a cliffhanger. The main character finds herself drawn to ancient fangborn artifacts all over the world while simultaneously running from evil, dodging her own people, and battling protectors.
