Cazadora by Romina Garber (Wolves of No World #2)
Reviewed by Sam!
What I drank prior: wow so. I don’t even know what to say about today except this is an apt book to review after today. Today this country took a step backwards. Today I as a woman lost rights to my own body. ToDAY I drank a bottle and a half of wine because that’s all I have left of control of my own body.
In Cazadora, Romina Garber weaves together Argentine folklore and what it means to be illegal in a timely, intimate, and emotionally powerful narrative.
Werewolves. Witches. Romance. Resistance.
Enter a world straight out of Argentine folklore…
Following the events of Lobizona, Manu and her friends cross the mystical border into Kerana–a cursed realm in Argentina–searching for allies and a hiding place. As they chase down leads about the Coven–a mythical resistance manada that might not even exist–the Cazadores chase down leads about Manu, setting up traps to capture and arrest her.
Just as it seems the Cazadores have Manu and her friends cornered, the Coven answers their call for help. As Manu catches her breath among these non-conforming Septimus, she discovers they need a revolution as much as she does.
But is she the right one to lead them? After all, hybrids aren’t just outlawed. They’re feared and reviled. What happens when the Coven learns of Manu’s dual heritage? Will they still protect her? Or will they betray her?
And after running this far, for this long–how much farther can Manu go before her feet get tired, and she stops to take a stand?
Drunk Overview: so this is the sequel to Lobizona. In this world, there are humans, there are werewolves (all men), and witches (all women). That’s it. Except for our main lady, who is a women werewolf. This is an Argentine folklore-based story like I’ve never read before. It’s part of my culture and it’s amazing and ohbytbewag a good story.
Spoiler-free Thoughts: lol like I said… there’s not much more that’s better than a story built off your culture when it’s not one most people don’t see. This book fell in second book slump but I kinda didn’t care? Idk.
Characters: again this book didn’t do much except put the players where they needed to be. We get to see one character who matters who we haven’t seen much of and I thought I’d be disappointed but I wasn’t which was nice. We lost someone which made me sad. But all in all nothing changed from book 1
Plot: meh. Like I said boom 2 slump. Not much happens at all except set up for the finale that I am 100% gonna read but not much happens here.
Writing Style: I listened on audio and the accent itself is what kept me going. That accent reminds me of my grandparents. Grandparents I didn’t know as well as I wanted to and I cling to everything I can.
World Building: I did get a lot more here than I was expecting. We understand a lot more about the why and that’s pretty great. I need more but I got a bit what I needed.
What to pair it with: fernet and Coke. I don’t like it but it’s nostalgic.
Until next time, we remain forever drunkenly yours,
