Being crew is walking between two worlds.
One world is normal: Prom. Parties. College.
Those are the concerns they worry about.
In our world, we deal with other situations.
Cops. Drugs. Brawling.
That’s a typical day for us.
But what if it wasn’t?
What if there came a day when you stopped?
When you considered letting your enemies win?
When you didn’t fight back?
When you chose a different path?
First I lost my family. Then I got the Wolf Crew.
I couldn't lose them too.
But what happens when Cross, Zellman, and Jordan keep going…
...and I don’t?
Crew Princess is the second book in the Crew Series
Anytime I get my hands on a book by this author, I pretty much go into “do not disturb me” mode. Sleep is optional, right? Bren, Cross, Zellman, and Jordan are still members of the Wolf Crew, but the system is threatened on many fronts. Instances of town rivalry are be popping up and graduation is quickly approaching.
Crew Princess took me a little while to get into the book and I was worried that “this isn’t going to be as good as Crew”. Then the story picked up and I was left thinking “Wow! This is even better than book 1!” Bren is in avoidance mode as she doesn’t want to know what will happen after graduation - will her crew all leave her? I felt that 2/3 of the way in, she grew up and matured as she really started to look inwards at herself. She is still a tough cookie with both a dark side and a hidden vulnerable side that only her crew sees. Cross remains a likable hero and I love how he is able to see past her walls - how he really knows her. There is still the romance between them with some rather steamy scenes, but I wasn’t always feeling their connection and I like that the book’s sole focus wasn’t just on their relationship. I enjoyed getting reacquainted with Jordan, Zellman, Taz, Tabitha, as well as a few others as I think these secondary characters help make the story. Mason , Samantha, and Logan from the Fallen Crest High series do make a few appearances and while I haven’t read the entire FC series, I did not find myself lost.
One of the things that I loved about this book is we get to see how all the different family dynamics play a role as well as all the twists, turns, and revelations scattered throughout the book. If you enjoyed this author’s previous works, especially Crew, then you will love Crew Princess.
