Disappointed a bit in this 3rd outing of the series. It seems everyone was getting on my last nerve. Rachel keeps getting away with crap over and over ad naseum. Greta is a bratty monster when her "daddy" is away. Talbot isn't in the book much. Lisette is too easy to get rid of and she is an Empress and Eric's creator. Eric is smart yet stupid and the forgetfulness is wearing thin. Amazingly, Tabitha is the only one that didn't get on my nerves. She's seemed to smarten up since the last two book ...more

Hey little sister what have you done

Eric is back and cruder than ever in J.F Lewis’s epically awesome ‘Void City’ series.

A lot happened in the second book ‘Revamped’. Eric and his Mouser, Talbot, defeated a demon and incurred the wrath of Hell. Eric finally got wise to the wily ways of tantric witch, Rachel and agreed to keep her as his thrall if she stayed in line. Eric also turned a bunch of Sweetheart Row prostitutes into thralls and now has a ready supply of servants/snacks at his remodel

I wish I'd written my review right when I finished and it was all fresh. But I might not have been able to express myself any better then. Ok, here goes. 4.5 stars, a great book. So different from what anyone else is doing. I just noticed the quote on the cover: "Raucous, raunchy blood-opera..." It's a wild mix of crude and elegant. The characters do a lot of bad things, and it's violent and sexual and pretty crazy. But it's also funny and moral and even sweet sometimes. I wrote on Twitter that ...more

I have to hand it to J.F. - once again, he's made bloodbaths fun. The plot of Void City 3 can be boiled down to "Eric and Tabitha try to honeymoon in Paris. Things go wrong." There's a lot more going on, of course, and lots of build-up to a sea change in the direction of the series as a whole. Unlike the first two volumes, which stand mostly by themselves as complete stories, this one feels more like a "middle book" in a series, with lots of subplots floating up to the surface and a general sens ...more

Crossed is the third book in the Void City series which features Eric, Rachel, Tabitha, Greta, and Talbot (the Mouser aka Supercat).

There are so many things that happen over the course of this book that you almost need a score card just to keep up with what’s going on. Here is just a Plot/Summary for your enjoyment. (Yes, I used a baseball analogy).

Before Eric and Tabitha are even married, Eric and Rachel have sex, and no, that's nothing new to anyone who has been following this series. Rachel a

Crossed by J.F. Lewis was a difficult book to complete. I kept putting it down to read other books. In fact, I had to force myself to finish it. I felt like this book was way over the top, and I'm happy to say, that I'm done with it.

The writing was fine; However the characters in the book, and the storyline, did not hold my attention.

The return of the porn! \_(ツ)_/

The first half of the book was lame sequelitis that took me forever to get through, but it picked up just fine in the second half. I'm getting tired of the impermanent comic book deaths though.

Eric and Tabitha are getting married, in church, in daylight. Eric has found a real priest willing to marry them, and having the ceremony in daylight, he was hoping the vampires he had to invite would decline. But no such luck, they have devised ways to be able to attend. And now his wedding is crashed by a bunch of religious alpha werewolves, who think it is an abomination for vampires to marry. Marriage should be “till death do us part” and not “at death do we start”. None of the vampires are ...more

I love this series; it is pure evil mixed with unapologetic fun! This book was an interesting entry into the series and diverted a little from the normal story. We still had alternating chapters from the characters, but this time we were in the head of Greta for a good portion of it while Eric and Tabatha are away.

Eric is a fun character, at times his morals just aren't there, but then in the next step you realize that he does have a defined sense of right or wrong. He just seems to act on thing

This book is just filled with people that are a mess, weather they are vampires, human, or some other supernatural and some of them are crazy or just plain psycho. But that is the appeal of this series.

Eric is a fun character, at times his morals just aren't there, but then in the next step you realize that he does have a defined sense of right or wrong. They just aren't what most people's are. It seems like everyone in his life is there to screw with him and this is what makes him likable. He i

This book was a bit more fragmented than the previous one, as required by the plot. I could've done with a bit less shifting of viewpoint, location, and even time; a basically solid story wound up feeling choppier than it should have. All the same, the parts that made the last two books so fun are still present - the triple helping of attitude, Eric fighting way out of his weight class and still coming up on top, Greta being her usual strange mix of cute and monstrous...there's lots of fun here. ...more

I was a little put off by the beginning of this novel. The characters that once entertained me started to get on my nerves. They are all a bit unlikable, or maybe flawed would be more accurate, and I appreciate that, but it does add a bit of annoyance to the mix. The plot here was ok, for what it's worth, but it pretty much boils down to going somewhere to kill someone. I found the changing of viewpoints to be a bit repetitious and didn't really care how some of the characters viewed events. I'm ...more

Well, i had to remember what the other were about being that i think this book took over a year to be published. But as I got into i remembered each and every character. I love Eric and his forgetful self and how it wants to be kept in the dark if something is going on but when he finds out. He does the right thing and he surprises those around him by what the does. This book was so i thought about him getting to know his sire but it took an interesting turn. Greta Eric's daughter is her usual s ...more

Per what I have come to expect from this author, the book is fast paced and just plain awesome! I love that we get to know more about Greta and Talbot. I will admit from the very first page I was eager for Rachel's demise. I think it is great when Greta finally gets to have some fun with a very deserving individual. I do have to say that for some reason I don't think we are ever going to see a "happy" ending for Eric and Tabitha. Eric is too screwed up and undeserving of her loyalty anyway. I ca ...more

Lewis' Void City (home of the Void City music festival) is a violent place populated with vampires, demons, sons of cat goddesses, mages,witches and sordid and assorted others.

In the third book Eric (our hero ????) goes on his honeymoon to Paris. Well he tries to anyway. Fang and Daughter Greta are left in charge in Void City.

Laugh outloud funny, horrific, sad and thought provoking by turns: Crossed is more complex then the first two books in the series. Nothing is quite what it appears to be.

This is the best of the trio and it can't be the final, to many things left in the air. I have to say that of all the characters Talbot is my fav, followed by Greta. And thank god someone finally took care of the bitch "Rachel", damn I couldn't stand her.
The pace was good, the characters spot on and we found out somethings we didn't know about Talbot and about Greta.
Highly recommend this book.

One thing you can count on with Crossed, and any of the series, is that you won't be waiting very long for something to happen, it just wouldn't be Eric's style.

I really just love this series. It's such a different take on vampires as well as several other supernaturals, Mousers are especially interesting to me. When we've so many different versions vampires before it's really nice to be able to go off the path completely sometimes, and That's definitely Eric's style.

Shelves: modern-fantasy
Loved the first 2 books but then read this after a few years break. Seems that eh three every supernatural thing he could into this book. There was a very slim plot and all Eric needed to do to get out of his predicament was to get angry and hit out. Got a bit tedious after the first fee times. Could have been a whole lot better.

J.F. Lewis does a fantastic job with these books, even if your getting tired of the whole vamp thing, you will still love these books! they are crazy funny! the characters are funny, psycotic and just fun!! These are at the top of my list of Favorite books!! I am waiting for his next in the series!!

Not as good as Staked, better than ReVamped. Slightly disappointingly this looks like it will be an ongoing series, rather than tying up the few good ideas it had in a trilogy. I'm unlikely to keep going with this.
Awilk -never sleeps-
It's really sad that this book took me so long to read. I kept putting it down to read other things. My tastes have definitely changed, as I used to love this series.
I think I will re-read this when I am more in the mood for this style of book.
Mathieas
This time the action is split between Paris and the series central location Void City. Also, the narration is split between several more characters, which I really enjoyed. Also, J.F. Lewis did a great job of making each POV character have a unique voice.

Really a 3.5 for me. The writing is entertaining in general, but the story itself seemed overworked and too many obvious set ups. You have to just take it as mindless entertainment. I'd read the next one but won't be waiting for it with baited breath...

LOVED IT! I love the whole series. This one was a little more heavy than the others, it wasn't as light but Gretta is one of my favorite characters so I liked that she was included more.

Lewis expands the viewpoints in this book to include several peripheral characters. Very well done. Continues the excellent comic timing of the prior books. Can't wait for the fourth!
