I did find that there was a lack of adventure in this 1 compared to the others in the series,it seemed that getting to were they were going just happen easy unlike in the previous books were hardship was faced, the wraith is becoming a dull bad guy and i think that needs working on. wynn is starting to grow on me and she has become stronger has the books progressed, she's not as whinning like we were first introduced to her character. i think more time could have been spent on the fay as hints are dropped but left. i'm really happy that leesil, magiere and chap are back but what a cliff hanger ending what has happened to them? what will happen to chane?...more
loved this book. wasn't sure at first but once i got in to it i really couldn't put it down.
finn sounds like the type of guy we would all love to meetloved this book. wasn't sure at first but once i got in to it i really couldn't put it down.
finn sounds like the type of guy we would all love to meet a complete gentlemen. matt was just a poor excuse for a male and i didn't really like him. wendy to begin with really annoyed me she seemed too spoiled for my likeing but by the end of the book i found myself really likeing her.
the storyline was a little lacking in info and am still not entirely sure what is meant to be happening but maybe the second book will disclose a little more.
all in all i thought this to be a really good book with some fascinating charaters can't wait for book 2...more
i loved this book, it was different from the books iread. 16 year old jamie's life changes for the better two year after seeing his father shot. afteri loved this book, it was different from the books iread. 16 year old jamie's life changes for the better two year after seeing his father shot. after his mom is taken by a vampire he learns that his dad worked for department 19 a secret organization that polices supernatural creatures. he soon finds him self with the help of frankenstien and a young vampire girl he sets out to rescue is mom and find out the real mole in the department. i loved it from start to finish the concept made it all seem real and that vampires are trying to bring back dracula. i wasn't too keen on jamie to begin with but has the book progressed i started to like him. i found the storyline beleavable and fast flowing. kept me gripped. i did think a bit more attention could have been given to the vampires were most of the book concentrated on jamie. i will be buying the next in the series....more
Wow I loved this book from start to finish. I've not read the 2 previous David Ash books and at the time didn't realise it was the 3rd, but the happeniWow I loved this book from start to finish. I've not read the 2 previous David Ash books and at the time didn't realise it was the 3rd, but the happenings in the other 2 were only briefly mentioned and didn't have any bearing on this novel.
I found the character of David to be a very deep and troubled person who was still really trying to find him self, yet not knowing he is looking. He came across as a beleievable character and I found him to be multi layered and full of surprises, his open mind and not too trusting attitude worked well together.
Delphine to me was your usal female lead and I felt that not a lot of thought went in to her.
The story was ace, secret societies and a hidden scottish castle that is a hide away for certain people I thought was really believable and not as far fetched as some people might think.
The Inner Court was just what you'd expect from a shady secret society, all secrets and threats. The reclusive head and the wanna be head were done perfectly.
The supernatural twist just added to the story even tho I was dissappointed by the lack of supernatural goings on at the end.
But I loved this book and found it to keep me engrossed for all the 700+ pages and I'm now reading the first David Ash book.
