I have a huge love for the Hallows and the universe surrounding it. So, I had high expectations for The Drafter as well, seeing how much I love Kim H..Show More »arrison's writinh and Rachel Morgan.
I found this book tedious. I was waiting the entire time for some ephiphany from Peri to lead us into some place new and awesome. Instead I found that she got stuck and was lost in her own head over and over and over again. Same scene, different guy over and over.
I still think Peri has potential in the hands of Kim Harrison. I just wish the story had really gone somewhere and not just stalled out and gotten stuck.

It reads like the author threw dices to decided which man Peri was going to like, love, hate or be in different to, it changed within minutes. Every man in the book is concern about her welfare and she can kick everyone’s ass.
There is more time spent on the highway picking up or dropping of drugs. She is so impulsive with her decisions. She has a strong character, instead of getting off the drug, so starts injecting herself. One minute she cannot stand Jack and the next she needs him to help. She knows he wants to get in her pants so she ends up bitching at him.
The best time is when Micheal goes psycho on his boss. He would take him to the brink of death and then drafted. The next best scene was when Peri was kicking ass in the first park of the book. I really wanted to like this book. There are a couple of new characters that I liked. I am a fan of Kim Harrison. But this falls way short from her usual stuff.
I only gave it 2 stars because they at least had drafts that were good.
