When this one came out, I saw a lot of my friends didn’t like this one, and I’m laughing at myself now because I knew I was going to go against the grain. I think it was because I gave it time and wasn’t expecting too much. Yes it reminds me of A change of heart at times, but you know what, I loved A change of heart series, so I didn’t mind.
I liked Jason and how he was portrayed. He didn’t allow them to walk all over him, but at the same time he gave in sometimes a little bit easily for me, I was glad we got to at least see his thought processes.
I liked the side characters and felt like i knew them all, Hadrian and Tiago were standouts as well as Ode and her family. I didn’t get the same feeling of knowing him with Varic. I felt like he was just there not as well rounded out as the others. I also got a little confused between the types of vampyrs. The made and born aspect was confusing and I couldn’t keep a track of who was who.
I enjoyed the setting of New Orleans, it is a place I have always wanted to go to and that hasn’t changed after reading this one. I hope we can see some more from this world as I would like to see how Jason goes when he is presented at court.
I thought that Mary would do a great job with her take on Vampires as her previous shifter and supernatural books were all hits with me. It popped on my kindle at 0100 hrs this morning and as I had a early morning start at work, decided what the heck I can start this now. Big mistake - try walking and reading a kindle at 0230 hrs in the morning walking up a deserted Melbourne street with tram tracks! I only stumbled twice.
Great story, great build up and great that if we get our wish and delve into other side character stories. There is so much in this book and I never ever give away plot lines as the blurb does that for you.
It rocked my little world between 0100 and 0500 hrs this morning - Thank you Mary Calmes!
I really, really was enjoying this book. It was truly fantastic, untill 66% of the way through. I wasted $8.28 on this pile of carp. Seriously they meet 2 times for 1 minute and the third time a character who is apparently a strong badass is like please make me your consort! It was so bad I skipped pages at a time after 66% extremely annoyed to have wasted my money on a half-assed book.
