I felt so bad for Kira when she stumbled into the laws of the vampire world and never had a choice about becoming a vampire. She was always just trying to do the right thing and then trying to protect Mencheres.
I'm excited though at her prospects of becoming an enforcer. It fits what she wanted for herself pre-Mencheres and, let's face it...Cat & Bones need her.
I don't know if if it's that Cat is a hard act to follow - but I was kind of underwhelmed by Kira. I could be influenced by the fact that I wasn't that interested in the conflict (big bad) in her book......
I would like to maybe see them in a short story or novella w/ a story I found more interesting to see if it was her character I didn't take to, or it was just the plot.
Did you see how their story was onsale (ebook) on Amazon for $1.99 recently. It was such a good sale I was so tempted but because the book felt lukewarm to me I ended up not jumping at it. I don't know if the deal is still good.
I always felt Kira was overshadowed by Mencheres story. His was the big reveal and transformation. Maybe a novella or a segment of the next book with her as a focus would work.
