How many times does it need to be said before you totally believe that Cal and Nico are the tightest-of-the-tightest-wedgies..cannot-seperate-them-dueHow many times does it need to be said before you totally believe that Cal and Nico are the tightest-of-the-tightest-wedgies..cannot-seperate-them-due-to-their-black-hole-like-gravity-to-each-others-lives...hell, their-souls-must-be-super-glued-together-brothers in the universe?
I think maybe 2 more times before I think I may have it.
Overall the story was pretty good especially with (view spoiler)[ Nico's fathers double cross, I honestly didn't think that would happen..I know it was plain and fucking obvious as the sun in daytime and now that I look back I feel kinda dumb but whatever. (hide spoiler)]. BUt here and there the story seemingly went of topic and got me mixed around in what the hell I was reading. Usually that only happened when I read the trickster novels. I have ADHD.. sue me. Long drawn out internal dialogues about angsty shit or bromancing the hell out each other or Cal telling us he is the baddest baddy that ever badded.. tend to throw me off sometimes.
Trust me, I love Cal even though he has lost a bit of that razor sharp tartiness that he had in the first couple of books. I absolutely adore Robin's bullshit...all of it...even though monogamy has made him a tad boring. And Nico... well, he cusses more :D I guess he's improved.
**spoiler alert** This series is so fucking hilarious sometimes that I want to cry. It's so fucking terrible that I can't help but be interested again**spoiler alert** This series is so fucking hilarious sometimes that I want to cry. It's so fucking terrible that I can't help but be interested again. You know that whole train-wreck expression...yeah doesn't even come close to how retarded this series has become.. this is more like blowing up the moon and then being mesmerized at the after effects of meteor showers and cosmic doom. Here are some of the crazy things that just stood the hell out, drove me nuts or need to mentioned:
*Edward's eyes are the deadliest-winter-cold-blue-ice-chipped shiver shiver eyes in the whole damn world. Yes Edward is scary. I understood that the first time it was mentioned (in book one? I don't remember) but the repetition of this fact every time Anita and Ed talk just makes me wonder if LKH was looking to hit a certain word count. He also seems to be one of the only people in the world who can talk her down, push her aside, step in front, or some other dominance laced activity, without her going ape-shit and defensive about trying to get her down or being a jealous hater.
*I'm also wondering where all the "I'm there for you always/ soulmate" is going.. or was that addressed in some book way back. I can't remember anymore. It's such a tease and yeah it'd be pretty interesting if she ever got it on with him..sometimes I think past plot lines never seem to go anywhere..Kinda like if Anita is ever gonna get her 4th mark or not, if they'll encounter obsidian butterfly again, or where Jean-Claude's (or any other harem member for that matter) balls went.
*The damn verbal dick-swinging is a treat yet again. I swear every time she goes out of town there has to be someone. That same someone. Some evil bitch lady or some super toughie guy...doesn't matter all the same character.. kinda like a Red Shirt in Star Trek. You know they're there and they're just waiting to be ass-reamed by Anita or one of her many beards. And it always must be that they want to fuck Anita or her Menz. It differs from book to book, some will have 3 dick-swinging contests while another will have 2 but then 5 orgy scenes. I wanna say this one was similar to Skin Trade but that had and blackout orgy and one brotherly sex scene while Hit List had 1 measly sex scene and like five swinging beef scenes. Bullet was just all wangst, homosex, and orgy-havin (which I like more than the dick-swinging oddly enough)
*The flow of the story is all over the damn place.. again. It stops and starts..goes off on a tangent here, runs to the next scene here, bitching here, sexxxxxxx here, wanngggstt here, Olaf being awesome, wangsting, Edward's cold-winter-ice-blue eyes here... Death of super powerful Mommie foo-foo.. now back to married life with my harem...dawwwwwwwww. No wait.. OLAF IS A WERELION. AHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA. That was the best part I think. I love Olaf. He might be my favorite character. I hope he eats Anita.
*Oh yeah, I really hate this rainbow tiger brigade..it's probably one of the most retarded plot points since the ardeur happened. Which sometimes I still don't get even after 10 or so books of it. I hope it's over and done with now that Mama-Foo-Foo is gone.
And if you're wondering if I'm gonna put this series down I say this: HELLS NAH! This is series is so messed up its actually made its self enjoyable by sheer ludicrous-ness. I must see this shit-storm to the end!! ...more
