    Upon their grandmother's death, Tristan Northland and his twin, Will, come into possession of her Book of Shadows and the knowledge that their family is responsible for a centuries-old curse. Determined to right the ancient wrong, Tristan sets off across the ocean to reverse the dark magic that affects the Sterling family to this day.

    Overall

    I realize this is a romance novel so the story line is set to provide a scenery for sex scenes. However, I have read good romance novels and this isn't. Almost all of the romance scenes were forced. By the end of the book it was clear to me that the author didn't think she had met her sex quota because the sex scenes were constant and out of place. It started out very well but by the end, it definitely fell off.

  • Dead Reckoning: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #11

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    BRANDON says: "Antiques RoadShow, Burned Hair & Elvis"
    "Enjoyable but frustrating."
    Overall

    In reading some of the other reviews, I have to concur that Sookie is definitely a little more somber in this book than others. She is clearly depressed and while that is totally reasonable based on the story line, it does make rooting for her a little more difficult. I do think that this book was definitely designed to set up for the next major story line but that doesn't bother me. We learned more back story, Pam kicked some ass (love Pam) and one of my favorite vampires returned (though briefly).. all in all a good book. On a side note, I think what makes the audio versions so amazing is that we are simply blessed to have such an amazing narrator in Johanna Parker. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and no one holds a candle to her. Period.
