Want to Read Currently Reading Read. After all this, you’re probably wondering why my rating is only four stars.
I re-read it just recently, and I am still a huge fan. I thought Zane would kidnap Danica and threaten her side and stuff like that but alas all that is left up to my imagination: But unlike Mockingjaywhich preaches against war by showing its horrors not that this was ineffectiveHawksong preaches against war by showing the contrast and beauty of peace.
It’s like the end of a thought.

Danica Shardae is an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land.

Danica was awesome because she is more “human” than the rest of her Hawk clan, but has been raised to conceal and control any and all emotions. Not this book however, I’ll admit that it was short, there could have been more development of the characters pasts and personalities.
I loved that her character was slow to melt toward the Serpentine clan. My problems with this are complex and somewhat confusing, even to me, but I’ll explain them the best that I can. Of course, the only conclusion they can come up with is marriage.

The only reason I gave this series two stars instead of one was because I really liked the first book, and I really wanted the whole series to be good. Peace may be good, but it isn’t perfect; in real life, there’s no such thing as a scenario where everybody wins.
It helps that Danica and Zane both felt completely real, and their personalities were completely utilized in making an emotional conflict. This article needs additional citations for verification.
