There is so much going on in the book - possibly a bit too much at some times (I admit I had a difficult time keeping all the feds straight), ...more
1/2 way done with this book and it's like reading the written version of a drug induced diatribe of insanity.
Seriously I hate this book. NOTHING makes sense and I've read the previous two books in the series. I even really liked book 2.
So so sad. I guess in the end I'm simply not connecting with the author. What is kind of story is she trying to write? This thing may be classified Urban Fantasy but it pulls in so many genre's that it's simply chaos.

I love Von, the keeper of history, the nomad Nightkind, Llygad. I want more of him.
The only downside is the amount of back and forth with the different agencies and all their agents. At some point I think ...more
The biggest thing that bothered me were the eight or so different story lines the reader was forced to endure. By the end of the book I was sitting there thinking, why on earth did we even need to know what Merri/Em, Gillseppe, Rutgers, Underwood, Purcell, Renata, Cortina, oh and Muvail/Justina were doing at all times???? Add to that, their story lines were never completed in this story and I was ...more

Unfortunately I don't have the rest. Time to hope I find them soon.
Cortini discovers the truth about Dante and crosses that line helping Heather, Dante, Von, and Annie escape from Special Agent-in-Charge Lyons to hole up in a motel for Dante and Von to Sleep. Only Morningstar breaks in putting Heather and Cortini to sleep then seduces Annie who can see him due to her mis-wired brain. Annie is all too willing to give Dante up to ...more
Beneath the Skin, the third installment in the Maker’s Song series by Adrian Phoenix, picks up immediately following the events of In the Blood. As has come to be expected from this thrilling series, there’s a seemingly nonstop onslaught of danger as plots and players eager to both protect and/or obtain Dante come out from the shadows. With a wonderful build up of action and suspense throughout and a pinch of romance this is one novel, and series, that I ...more

I strongly recommend you read the previous books in this series (Rush of Wings and In the Blood) before reading this book. This installment picks up exactly where In the Blood leaves-off.
Dante, Heather, Annie and Von are now on the lamb. Dante's true blood vampire and the "creawdwr" Maker identities have been unveiled to some of the most crooked souls on earth and in Gehenna (land where the fallen angels dwell). He is relentlessly and violently pursued by all, including the ...more

"She's not alone in those sentiments," the Morningstar said, "Except for the love. I make no clamis there yet, little creaw-Dante”
