Totally enjoyed this chapter of Sookie's saga. The 'trial' was amazing. Harris did it again. Johanna Parker was wonderful at capturing Sookie's voice and all the different characters- I listened to it twice.
I enjoyed all of Kelley Armstrong's previous Women of the Otherworld series. This was the first time offered through audio. I am really not a fan of Hope Adams. Hope just seemed confused and with her flash backs and chaos addiction became one of my least favorite characters. Paige a normally strong character added very little this story. I will buy the next in the series, but I just hope the females will stop needing to be rescued and start saving the day.
Get past the new narrator, this Rachel Morgan book is the culmination of all the past stories. We have many long standing mysterious revealed and many surprises. I have listened to the book twice and I gotten past all the pronunciation issues. Kim is able to recap a previous book in one new sentence as opposed to some authors, actually lazily cutting and pasting whole paragraphs of explanations. I relished each family scene, between Ivy, Rachel and Jenks. This is a story of complex strong characters and relationships, with adventure and fantasy. Rachel Morgan is forging into the EverAfter and I am following every step! Wonderful!
Magic Study was quite good. We are only starting to understand the true depth of Yelana's power. Her powers are imaginative and delightful. The author is doing a bang up job with this series and I cannot wait until book 3.
Usually I cannot get enough of strong women characters, I love SF and the Queen of the Vampires seemed to have a concept with a whole lot of potential. But... I don't like her, I don't care about her and she seemed to waste my time. Maybe because the narrator sounded like a valley girl, and I am not from California, but OMG, I am not reading another one.
Always looking for good strong women characters --and Yelena is not bad as characters go. I don't like fantasy but this world seems to be very rooted in reality. Some surprises and some things quite predictable. I look forward to reading Magic Study.
