This one was so much better than the first. All the other characters were so afraid for Jane to die because they didn’t want her to come back as a vam..Show More »pire and Aidan have to kill her. And, there was Jane, always taking chances with her life in order to keep everyone safe. And, wow, Aidan’s love for Jane was just incredible. Then all the excitement that went on when Jane did die. Whew, couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. There was so much going on when that happened. Enough that Aidan didn’t have time to lose his mind over the loss of Jane. And now, I can’t wait to read Bitter Blood to see what happens to Aidan and Jane. (Don't get me wrong, Better Off Undead wasn't a cliffhanger. The third book is just a continuation of their story.)
Then there was the other alpha that showed up in town and started killing, and then Vincent who came to town for Jane’s transition, and the voodoo queen, Annette, who was just awesome, and Paris, Aidan’s second, that was crazy for Annette, and Dr. B, the medical examiner who worked with the paranormals and was Jane’s friend, and Vivian, the police captain, and goofy Garrison, the werewolf who was always looking out for Aidan and Jane, even though he shot Jane in the last book. Garrison was pretty funny and immature.
There is explicit sex in this book, but not erotic. And the F-bomb was used exactly 100 times. So, if you have a problem with that word don’t buy this book.
As to the narration: Perfect! Sophie Eastlake does everything just right, most of the time. In this one she was terrific, the voices and emotions were awesome.
Good grief, this book was exciting all the way through. The werewolves Aidan and his second in command, Paris, were turned into vampires and Jane..Show More » and Annette played heck getting them to control their bloodlust. Aidan completely lost himself and was on the verge of killing Jane, the woman he had loved more than life but had forgotten. And Annette kept a magical circle of magic around Paris in an old BDSM club, a now defunct club, to keep him from attacking anyone. And then there was Lena, a djinn that Vincent had been in control of for five centuries. She was a fantastic character.
I did feel bad for Drew but I didn’t see how it could have ended any other way for him. LOL, I loved Dr. B because he was so brave and so very frightened at the same time. And Garrison, I remember him fighting with the bad guy near the end of the book but then I don’t remember reading anything about him after that. He was very important to Aidan that’s why I wondered about it. Did he live or die?
Anyway, books 2 and 3 were the best in this series and I really hated to see them end. The only thing I really, really didn’t like about these books was the fact the NONE of the wolves could shift! Only Aidan, the alpha, could do that. All the others could grow long nails and long vicious teeth but that’s all. What’s the point of a werewolf book if no one can shift?
There were 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes in this last book, maybe 4 but I skimmed past the others after the first 2. And, as in the last book, the F-bomb was used exactly 100 times.
As to the narration: Sophie Eastlake did a great job on the voices and reads with terrific emotions. I just love her men’s voices. And that says a lot when you’re talking about a female narrator.
