The Third Night Huntress Novel
on 15 February 2009
Like a couple of other reviewers I really enjoyed the previous two books but did not like this one as much.
To be fair the action was almost non stop, although a little gruesome in places, making the book was very easy to read. I certainly was not tempted to abandon it half way through.
However, the characters did not really feel real to me. The behaviour and attitude of Justina, Cat's mother, didn't quite feel authentic in the last two books but in this one she became quite unbelievable. Also being Britsh I have met a lot of Englishmen and do not know any that would call their wife Kitten in public or use words like mate, chap and sodding as Bones does quite frequently. Having said that I suppose I have not knowingly met any two hundred year old vampires.
So in summary for me this book was entertaining but didn't draw me into the world it created well enough for me to say it is a good book.
