Kim Harrison has done it again. I love the way she tied up several loose ends while starting some fresh new ones. Margarete Gavin is the BEST! I can't wait for the next installment. I just have one pet peeve about Rachels character. The constant "I'm sorry" got real old after the 10th one. Half the apologies didn't make any sense. Rachels character development seems to have stalled. She's grown in power but remains stuck between her apologies and the tedious "it's not my fault" whining. It was fine in the first few installments but now, its just old.
I love this entire series but I won't be getting anymore audio versions with the current narrator. She does the worst sounding accents ever. Her "Mexican from the hood" accent for poor Juan was so wrong! I couldn't lose myself in the book long enough to enjoy it. Maybe next time they'll get someone with a better range. Until then...
I love the Sookie series and like all true die hard fans, I will continue to read/listen to the series. But, I have to say that I am not liking it as much as before. What happened to Sookie's character development? With each book and new drama/heartbreak, Sookie was maturing real well. In "All Together Dead" Sookie appeared to have grown a backbone and was able to stand on her own with "some" class. Now she sounds more like a backwards shrew. Especially with her reaction to Quinn's question. (He did have a valid point). Also, Where's the growth in her telepathy? Shouldn't that have gotten an extra boost by now. Overall, she is becoming my least favorite character.
Not a lot gets answered. Some issues just get more complicated. I loved that Eric plays a bigger part as does Bill. That little triangle is promising to be a real page turner. Her cousin Hunter was introduced in the last book but nothing happens in this one. The plot in this book is very intense and rough on everyone. I liked that a lot. The Were's coming out was a little anti-climatic. That was a little disappointing. Overall, the book was good but I am hoping the next one is longer and more enlightening. There are way too many questions left hanging.
