liked plot but didn’t like romance
Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?
I read Nightshade earlier this year and loved it. I even had this pre-ordered. Now let me first mention that I read this front to back. It held my attention with no issues (well unless you consider me not wanting to stop to eat an issue). So why only 3 stars?! I didn’t like how the romance played out. It seemed far too back and forth. I was shocked to find that I had switched sides and then was ultimately disappointed in how things progressed.
Jill seemed a little less in control. Which considering all she had been through in the past few weeks is probably understandable, but still hard to like. Matthias was the star. I love guys that don’t fit in a category. He’s not a good guy, but he’s not a bad guy. He’s both and owns it. Declan was hard to like in this book. I believe it was done on purpose by the author, but that didnt’ stop it from breaking my heart.
If you haven’t picked up the first book yet, please do. If you have read the first then I still highly recommend this one. I really hope to see more in this series.
I don’t think this summary does the book justice…
Jillian Conrad’s blood has killed the vampire king. Now an enemy to all vampires, she is targeted for elimination. So is the infant daughter of the dead king. If Jillian doesn’t stand in the way of her death, then everyone, living or dead, is in great peril.-via GoodReads.com
He stepped into the room and glanced around the damage and bloodstains. “Is this one of those theme motels? Like this is the death and carnage room?”
- I’m so glad Noah was back in this one!
Declan flicked a glance at me. “I thought I asked you to wait in the fucking car.”
He did have a point there.
- but Declan don’t you know that the leading lady always rushes into danger?
He shook his head. “Being the reluctant cause of death doesn’t make you a killer.”
“Get the fuck out of my way…”
“Or what? You’ll bleed in my general direction?”
- this made me think of my favorite scene in Monty Python
