This was worlds different from what I expected and I'm not quite sure whether the surprise is pleasant or not. We do finally get all the answers. AndThis was worlds different from what I expected and I'm not quite sure whether the surprise is pleasant or not. We do finally get all the answers. And I mean all the answers. Answers to questions I didn't even know to ask, some stuff I wish I didn't know lol. Well except for one confusing bit.
(view spoiler)[ How come none of the other sidhe-seers ever had the super strong insta-lust reaction to Vlaine that Mac did? Yeah, I get that after surviving Fae-uberslut-syndrome she was immune. But whats up with every female in the story seeming to as well for no reason? Her mom, Rowena, all the seers at the haven, heck even Dani.... I know he could mute it somewhat, but never completely turns off (it's the essence of being a fey prince is it not?). And not a one of them caught a case of the fuck-me's. Nope, not in a plane, not in the dark, not on a train, not in a car, not up a tree. No one liked green eggs and ham; in the dark fey club,the haven, or on the street either. lmao. (hide spoiler)]
Anywhoo, this read was a real roller coaster ride. It took a while for the story telling to really get it in gear; and I almost stopped reading at multiple points in the first 30% of the book. And when it finally did bloom, having to suffer through reading Dani's POVs and newsletter; was insult to injury.
Let's just say I skread (skimmed +read) for my life during those bits, ohh also during the Oprah like evil book chronicles segments sprinkled throughout lol. But as always what was good was really good. I dare say better than it's ever been before *wiggles brows*. And I don't mean the sex...well partly I do, it was glorious. Russian doll layers upon layers of complexity lurking in the tale, was as often thrilling as it was maddening.
P.S. If Moning does take up a tale in this "world" again. The heroine better not be Dani. Or if it must, by Gawd, she better be grown up and have evolved humanoid speech patterns. Or I'm done with the lot of it....more
I loved this installment of the Sookie-verse to bits. But...Sookie isn't the girl we first met in Dead until Dark. So much has changed for Sook; so II loved this installment of the Sookie-verse to bits. But...Sookie isn't the girl we first met in Dead until Dark. So much has changed for Sook; so I think it all comes down to whether you see those changes in her ( and other characters) as improvements or not. I do = ) and this is now my fav book in the series, which until now was Dead to the World....more
Same ole Anita, which means butt loads of gratuitous metaphysical nookie. Not enough of a cohesive action based plot to be Urban Fantasy. Way too muchSame ole Anita, which means butt loads of gratuitous metaphysical nookie. Not enough of a cohesive action based plot to be Urban Fantasy. Way too much whining, repetitive dialogue about emotions ( My gawd, I've never read so many gag worthy conversations about FEELINGS as in this series. Everyone just can't freaking shut up about their FEELINGS lmao). And not strongly written enough to classify as "good".
But the anita-verse is as thrilling, sexy, and addictive as crack as ever. And much like crack it's killing me slowly to continue "using", but I can't seem to stop myself.
