My Rating: êêê1/2
My Review: This series is still the funniest vampire series I’ve ever read, but this book was not the best in the series. I liked Out For Blood the best, and I don’t think any of the others were as good. This book was not as exciting. Lucy is one of my favorite characters, and I love her voice/narration. The events in this book weren’t done as well as some of the other books. Having it switch between 3 perspectives, rather than two, is taking away from the story, even if it’s showing more. The opening was pretty good, but Solange’s behavior was just so weird. I’m hoping we get to see Kieran’s perspective in the next book. I think the next book is probably the series conclusion. Also it’ll probably rotate between Kieran, Lucy and Solange.
Sorry for the short review, I wasn’t in a vampire-book mood, and I was just hoping for more. Some people like might this 5th book, some won't. I liked it, just not enough. Not like I loved book 3.
Cover Art Review: Generic/boring. I do like the swirl textures, though. I miss the old covers.
