Go Fetch! by S. Laurenston

I’ve been reading Shelly Laurenston’s Go Fetch, the second in her Magnus Pack series, in my Kindle and I have to say it’s another great read.

How much trouble can one small female be to a modern-day shapeshifting Viking? Well.it really depends on local gun laws. Conall Vga-Feilan, direct descendant of Viking shifters, never thought he’d meet a female strong enough to be his mate. He especially didn’t think a short, viper-tongued human would ever fit the bill. But Miki Kendrick isn’t some average human. With an IQ off the charts and a special skill with weapons of all kinds, Miki brings the big blond pooch to his knees-and keeps him there. Miki’s way too smart to ever believe in love and she knows a guy like Conall could only want one thing from her. But with the Pack’s enemies on her tail and a few days stuck alone with the one man who makes her absolutely wild, Miki is about to discover how persistent one Viking wolf can be. This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release. Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and strong violence.

What was up with the hyenas? That’s the thing I don’t get. They start this fight over Miki, but nothing is ever said why they started it. Granted, the male hyena (his name escapes me at the moment) said it was all his females thing, but that really doesn’t tell us why they started it in the first place. Plus, it’s not like the fight started when Miki showed up in Seattle either; they had information on her and her friends for the past few months. With hyenas being enemies of cats, I can’t see them working with the Pride, but again, why did they start the fight?

That’s the biggest thing that sticks out for me in Laurenston’s Go Fetch. I like it when a novel leaves me with unanswered questions, but I don’t when I can’t tell if something is connected. Like, I don’t see how the plots between Pack Challenge and Go Fetch are related. I get how they tie together as a series, but plot wise, I’m lost. I know romances focus mainly on the romance and not the plot, so it’s not bothering me too much, but I still want to know what was up with the hyenas.

Other than that, the story was actually fun. Once I had the time to sit down and spend some time reading it, I flew through it. Very captivating and I learned to like Miki. She wasn’t my favorite person in Pack Challenge, but her whole personality really shines in Go Fetch.  Conall is definitely nuts, but I was expecting a little more action to come from his corner with the antagonism of his familial pack.  Maybe that’s the connection with the hyenas.  Who knows, but something tells me the connection is going to be shown in the third Magnus novel, Here Kitty Kitty, which I just happened to have.

So overall, Shelly Laurenston’s Go Fetch is a great read that is both fun and a pleasure.  It was definitely something that kept my attention and is driving me to try more from Laurenston.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. I don’t know what was up with the hyenas, either. But Laurenston’s book made me laugh out loud, and so I just gave up on trying to figure it out and enjoyed the ride.

    Terrific review, as always.

  2. In Pack Challenge you learn about Kylie Redwolf, Sarah’s mother, was supposed killed by the Lowe lion clan. The truth about what REALLY happened and how the hyenas are involved is revealed in Here, Kitty, Kitty.

    • True and I’m in the process of writing the review for Here Kitty Kitty, however, that doesn’t change the fact that they came out of nowhere and nothing was really explained about them.

  3. That might be why Here Kitty, Kitty is my favorite of the three books. I guess the hyenas are odd, but I read that series backwards, starting with Here Kitty, Kitty, so I never noticed it. LOL
