has made itprofound for me to have such a turnaround of opinion It also brings in some real world considerations something I don t usually endorse while reading, lol about the pitfalls of judging someone before you really get to know them This might sound too sappy, but my favorite thing about Jamie is how compassionate she is she s always the first to jump up and offer help And what I didn t like about her at first is now the thing I appreciate most that she unapologeticly dances to her own beat and owns it And then there s the added benefit of her story containing my favorite love interest to date Another reason I liked No Humans Involved so much is my general interest in anyone practicing a skill at a high level Jamie s particular talent necromancy was a huge focal point of the book and I really enjoyed seeing the depth of her knowledge on it She managed to show off what she can do without ever actually showing off, making her all theinteresting The interactions between her and the other necros were particularly satisfying and comprised my favorite scenes from the book.Series Status Overall, No Humans Involved was a huge success and completely reinvigorated the series for me The next book is already on deck Recommendations The Women of the Otherworld series may have its ups and downs, but the high moments by far outweigh the lows If you re a fan of the genre, this is definitely one I d recommend as a staple read Each book is so different, you re bound to find at least a couple of winners, no matter your specific urban fantasy tastes Via The

control myself,lol I had been wanting to knowabout Jeremy since book 1 so once I got to this book I was so excited I could not control it and Jaime ended up being a terrific heroine, who would have thought there was so muchabout her we did not know But there s so muchabout each of the books in this series than the heroes and heroines It s all about this amazing new world the author has created The way she describes all the species and to get to read about them all in a same series there are no words to explain how much I love this series.If you have not read it yet, you must This is the

from Jaime I find Jaimerelatable than the other characters in the series, mainly because she is a total girly girl and does not let her gift hinder her appearance The other characters areinto combat and so you wouldn t find a heel or skirt on any of them so it is refreshing to find her meddling her way through the supernatural going on s in a glamorous way Talking of combat, as you can imagine, there is not so much of that in this book If action is what your after this will likely be your least favourite That s not to say the book is lacking of all types of action, things definitely warm up in this one Enter Jeremy Jeremy is involved heavily in this fantasy and focuses a lot on his and Jaime s relationship You will certainly get slightly hot under the collar Who knew Jaime was a sultry sexpot amongst other things Overall this did take me a lot longer to read than anticipated It was a lotpassive and so the pages weren t turned quite as fast as the others have been I am hoping we seeof Jaime, I expect big things from her It a lovely book in the series and I do hope you enjoy it, even though it is a bitlaid back than what we are used to This is the seventh in Armstrong s Women of the Otherworld series, and this time we get to experience the action through Jamie Vegas eyes.While filming for a tv show, Jamie finds out that the garden of the house were the filming takes place

from Armstrong s world Paige, Lucas, Savannah, Eve, Kristof, Hope, Karl and ofcourse Jeremy.Jamie has been infatuated with Jeremy for four years and it s really funny to see how the professional flirter turns into a 14 year old girl around the werewolf Alpha The reason I like Armstrong s Women of the Otherworld series is because we see her world from so many different perspectives Granted not every main character has the same depth or attraction Elena is my favorite but a big reason behind that was the angst between her and Clay I loved Eve Levine because of her humor and big mouth, while her relationship with Kristof and her need for Savannah portrayed her vulnerable side.Jamie is a show girl who has tried to turn an unhappy life with an unloving and demanding mother in a meaningful and purposeful existence She has strong powers but these do not always come handy in battle This makes Jamie seem like the muddler who is always in need for protection This book shows however, that Jamie isthan capable of handling her own A very good, entertaining and solid read by Kelley Armstrong I was so looking forward to this book, Jamie wasn t who I thought I wanted with Jeremy but it actually worked We also get Elena and CLAY Yay This was zombies come to life it was weird and had me intrigued it isn t my favorite of the books because the story was weird for me but overall it was good I wantJeremy though I kind of feel like this book wasElena and Clay than Jeremy and Jamie I think we lost some of the romance for them.The ending though OH MY Word precious I want I was so

especially that of the alpha werewolf, Jeremy Danvers, and come to terms with the true nature of her powerful abilities The build up toward Jamie and Jeremy s book had me very eager to read their story In some regards, it lives up to expectations, but in others, it falls rather flat While Jamie and Jeremy s romance has been developing over the past few books, my impression was that they had not yet reached the point of being comfortable enough with one another to enter into a relationship Consequently, it was strange to learn that Jeremy was coming to Los Angeles to spend time with Jamie Did I miss a prequel novella to this book Nevertheless, once Jamie and Jeremy get together, the sparks fly and the two share several intensely intimate scenes Unfortunately, Armstrong fades to black just as its getting really good The plot revolving around a cult like group practicing human sacrifice in an attempt to attain magical abilities has incredible potential Unfortunately, Jamie s path toward uncovering the truth diverts so many times that the story becomes drawn out and loses momentum There is really no reason to include so many scenes involving the heroines from the previous books The only conclusion to be drawn is that Armstrong is promoting other stories to first time readers Despite these issues, the climax and resolution are exciting and satisfying Moreover, the insights into Jeremy s family history and the side stories about the various ghosts that Jamie encounters throughout the story are a highlight In sum, an enjoyable addition to the series, but I was expectingfor Jamie and Jeremy s romance I can talk to dead people.Jaime Vegas is a true necromancer She can raise the dead if she has to She can see and talk to ghosts Only problem is, she can t control seeing them Constantly, everywhere, they see her, she pretends not to see them Sure, she can deliver a message for them, but she can t figure out why they re dead, who killed them, what killed them, and would prefer not to even try Now part of the interracial council, Jaime gives her feedback when it s needed and wanted However, I can talk to dead people.Jaime Vegas is a true necromancer

when it s needed and wanted However, she still doesn t think they take her as seriously as she d like them to.Jeremy is a werewolf, the pack s Alpha As the Alpha, he s constantly being protected, bodyguard and otherwise, for no one in the pack wants to lose him, and those not part of the pack wants to see him dead This time he meets up with Jaime without protection, just for a visit While he s slow at getting there, he wants her He just doesn t want to put the risks on her of what a pack Alpha means the constant need to be protected, always at risk, for the easiest way to get to Jeremy would be through Jaime But she s been wanting him since they met, and this time Jaime is determined to get him.On the set of an anticipated TV show, something strange happens Seems ghosts are trying to get her attention, but she can t see them She talks to them, but they don t seem to understand or hear her And other than indistinguishable whispers, she can t understand them either.With the help of mostly Eve, Kristof, Hope, Jeremy and Karl, they delve into the mystery, unable to understand why these ghosts are unlike those she s ever encountered and wanting to lay them to rest With a little sleuthing, they discover the ghosts are those of children, ghosts who s energy has been taken away, making them unable to appear in corporeal form, unable to be heard even by Eve and Kristof But finding out who and why is enough to shock everyone.I liked the mystery involved in this one I d have never guessed not true, LOL I got an inkling of the who, just not quite the why and how It was interesting to see how the plot worked out definitely different from your usual run of the mill paranormal story What I thought cute was how Jaime was portrayed like Daphne from the Scooby Doo cartoon a wimp, always the one in trouble, getting kidnapped and needing rescuing But the courage Jaime finds to defeat them was right on perfect I couldn t expect better.I liked the banter between Jaime and Jeremy, especially the way she teased him I do feel that there could have beem a littlespark between them While it was strong, it wasn t enough Could have used a littleoomph between the two of them.And while the book is full of the usual horror, action, adventure, suspense, mystery, satire, there were little inconsistencies that you catch and just let go But I thought it was a little too neat, like it was hastily written Too many tidy coincidences and not enough twists And I know I m not the only one who d have loved to getof Jaime s background You get snippets of her past, but it s like the info barely made a dent on who Jaime is Could ve really usedon her.Otherwise, another hit for the series Keep em coming, Kelley The seventh installment of the Women of the Otherworld series

thankfully, in this regard, No Humans Involved is a much better book than its fillerifick wish fulfillment predecessor Broken At the center of the story is Jaime Vegas, a necromancer originally introduced in Dime Store Magic and who s been a reoccurring secondary character ever since Jaime is in LA and participating in filming of a documentary about contacting Marilyn Monroe s ghost, along with two other supernaturalists She is however diverted from the shooting by a group of ghosts she accidentally encounters on the set These ghosts are very insistent in their desire to get Jaime to help them, but she can t figure out what they want The ghosts are unusual and nothing like the necromancer has come across before she can t see or communicate with them Can it be that the ghosts are victims of some heinous paranormal experiment Jaime has to employ the help of about every supernatural she knows to get to the bottom of this mystery No Humans Involved is by no means a perfectly written book It is Armstrong s habit to try to make every book of hers a sort of a reunion of all her previously introduced characters This book is no exception there is an obligatory revisiting of Elena, Clay, twins, Paige, Lucas, Robert, and the rest of the gang Sometimes these cameos are vital to the story, sometimes they are unnecessary and only add some logistical confusion In No Humans Involved this revisiting is not as jarring as in, let s say, Industrial Magic or Broken In fact, I actually quite liked meeting Savannah and Eve again, and I am definitely ready to learnabout Hope and Karl in Personal Demon.Overall, I enjoyed this 7th installment of Women of the Otherworld No Humans Involved is a good mix of fast paced adventure, great mythology, mystery and smutty romance Of course, this book is no Bitten and Jaime and Jeremy are no Elena and Clay But if you are a fan of Armstrong s non werewolf books such as Industrial Magic and Haunted, I expect you will enjoy this book as well
