The first thing I did when I finished this novel today was to look and see if book two was already out, and if not, when it was due to release. August! Argh!
Actually the novel achieves a nicely balanced ending–the sure knowledge that there is more to come, but the comfort of knowing that for now, things are mostly okay. It won’t be agony to wait for the next installment, but I’ll also be pleased to read it when it arrives.
I found the beginning of this book just slightly slow…a little too much history lovingly woven into the setting, perhaps, and a main character just hovering at the edge of too ditzy to be really likeable. However, once things get rolling, it’s a gripping tale with lots of twists, a large cast to be interested in, and dark edges that are pretty darn nervewracking. All in all a great read and I’d definitely recommend it for lovers of the paranormal.
