Absolutely. I was actually upset that this was all I could read (so far) But the new book Emerald Isle comes out soon, and I've already pre-ordered it.
YES!! Annino manages to pack a lot into her books. It didn't take days to listen to. There wasn't a lot of deep inner monologues (looking at you Kim Harrison!!) or descriptions that really aren't that pertinent.
There were time that I actually laughed out loud. And there were times that I was confused, and times that I had to rewind to make sure I didn't miss anything. When James gets some of his writing ironed out, this series is going to be amazing.
While some of these problems were true and hilarious, I did feel like they could have all been fleshed out more.
This is the (for now) LAST installment of the Morganville vamps. And while I hate to say good bye to the gang (read: Shane) I am actually really glad that they can be happy and just settle down for a change. The four of them deserve a normal life. And while I probably wouldn't have made some of the same choices they did (I don't want roommates forever) I'm pretty happy with the way the series turned out.
Over all, I really enjoyed this. There were some heart fluttering moments, really funny moments, quirky characters and just a general good time.
However, some of the humor fell flat, Julie had some really bitchy and annoying moments, and the plot was (at least for me) fairly predictable. But it was still enjoyable and will read the others.
This is definitely YA. Love triangle, ansgty stupid girl who, if she'd just stopped to ask or actually talk about what she saw, there would have been a lot less drama, YA.
I like the story- which is odd, because I hate 'The Bachelor' love dating shows (which this basically is), am not the hugest fan of dystopian (which this is) and love triangles make me want to put my nails down a chalkboard. But for some reason, it works.
It pains me to give Chloe Neill such a low rating. I think part of this was the narrator. While she does a nice job reading, her voice doesn't match a 15 year old girls and so there is a bit of a disconnect. It wasn't that it was bad, but I found my mind wandering and not that excited to finish. I liked the ending, but the build up was not all that.... Build upy? Anyway. And okay story, but not great
I have NO IDEA why I love this series so much, but I've read the whole series (and I actually had to READ the last two AND the shorts) I love Violet, Doc, Harvey, the kids etc… Its a funny, cozy mystery with hints of the paranormal. Its not the best thing every written, but it was very captivating and I devoured the series.
This was pretty typical of the rest of the series. Some romance/love triangle some action and mystery. Good read, but not amazing. Will continue the series.
Those of you that know Atticus and Oberon will appreciate this installment. There was a LOT of different POVs and new characters and EPIC DISASTER but there was still the funny stuff, great moments with old favorites and falling for newbies.
There is A LOT OF SEX in this book. That's not true. There is a lot of TALKING ABOUT SEX in this book. I am not a prude, I understand that there was sex in the rest of the story, but with all of the EPIC WAR going on, there seemed to be much more love and not a lot of war.
