There are a lot of romance fantasies out there, many of which take place in modern times. Most of them revolve around angels, vampires, or werewolves, and the main character who is a strong, independent woman who's mind inexplicably clouds at the sight of them. Fighting her better judgement, she just can't help but love the guy, and he's too stiff to admit that he loves her back. Then they kill some monsters, get intimate, and profess their undying, destined love, and manage to fundamentally change the rules of society in the name of true love.
I would rank this book as an above average sample of this sub-par genre.
Don't get me wrong, there were a lot interesting and unique elements to this book. But, they were set against a generic romance plot that has been done a thousand times over. I found it enjoyable, as I needed a light distraction, but my tolerance for finding this sort of book while browsing the Fantasy section is getting real low.
If you think you might enjoy this sort of pulp fiction, or are a fan of the genre already, I would definitely recommend this book. Otherwise, don't bother buying it. I'm sure your local library has at least five audiobooks just like this one, and once you've read one, you've read them all.
Unfortunately, all I'll be able to remember from this series is the mutilations and mutations. The perversion of all that was built in the previous books overshadows a mediocre ending. It will be a while until I can re-read this series, even though I adored this books predecessors.
This was a good book, but frustrating since I suspected most of what would happen 15 minutes or more ahead of time and the waiting for it actually to occur was infuriating. In the end, however, it is the execution that matters and the book was well written in that respect. If you enjoyed the first book, you should definitely listen to this one.
This volume in the series is kind of depressing and has so little closure that you might want to skip it and figure out the basics from the next book. But if you have the time, this book is a fair addition to the series.
