It’s been a while since I read book 2 in the series, and with every book I always wonder if I might continue reading or if I should just stop. But I have OCD and have to know what happens next. So here I am.I thought I would actually like Menolly’s book, and I have to say I’m a bit disappointed. A lot of dark things came out in this book. It was a good story, but just a bit too rough and too dark for my taste. There was also a lot going on, as usual in this series, I find that there’s a lot of descriptions and details and at times that can get boring.
This book brings out Menolly’s past as the vampire who made her (against her will, and raped her, and tortured her) comes back! We get to relive some of what happened to her at his hands, which I will warn you was a bit disturbing. Because of that I understand more why she is so f*cked up! But, there was just a little healing in this book, she still has a long way to go in my opinion.
I also thought she would get with the head of the Vampires in the city, but he actually didn’t play into Menolly’s romantic interests in this book. We actually got some f/f sex because Menolly went for a puma shifter girl, and there was also some attraction with Jareth, whom she meets in her search for Dredge.
All the D’Artigo sisters make an appearance, I still can’t stand Camille, Delilah is cute but she’s still not 100% comfortable in her relationship with Chase, of course Camille has a few to choose from, Morio I actually like and he’s a big help to them.
There’s a lot happening with the fey. Their father and aunt are in hiding. There is a lot of action and things that happen in this book. But will I continue reading the series? Maybe after another long break, and when I’m in the mood for something a bit darker.
