Read from March 08 to 11, 2010

Yes, another book from a series that I jumped into--or rather, thought I did. A while ago, I read a short story with two very interesting characters--a jewel thief werewolf and a half-breed chaos demon. It was fantastic, and I put the author on my To-Be-Read list, a list I promptly lost. Imagine my joy when I found this book on the shelf of my local library, opened it, and read that those characters were in there! Upon further investigation, I found that Kelley Armstrong is insanely prolific, and jaw-droppingly talented.

You see, her books point-of-views vary book to book. I can't imagine what her notes look like. How on earth does she keep all those character voices and quirks and histories straight is beyond me. But she does manage it, with wit and cleverness. The main character in this novel, Jaime, is well-defined, likable and fun to read about. In an amazing juggling act, she brings in Hope--not as a POV bust as a character--and I instantly remembered her from the Novella CHAOTIC, in the collection DATES THAT BITE. It has been about 3 years since I read that, but I recognized her immediately.

Now that's talent.

I'm definitely going to go back and start at the beginning. I love the idea of doing a series that uses different point of views and an intricate weaving of story lines. Ms. Armstrong pulls it off with awe-inspiring talent. Though this is book 7, I never once felt lost when it came to the back stories. She managed to tell me enough that I want to read the novels and the endings weren't ruined.
