Format: Paperback
With Garnet and Sebastian finally married they are supposed to be jetting off on their honeymoon but with trouble attracted to Garnet like a magnet things don't go quite to plan. Their plane is unable to take off due to a frost demon looking for revenge and the couple find themselves stuck in Minneapolis. Determined to make the best of things Garnet wants to share the favorite haunts from her old stomping ground with Sebastian. However with 2 Goddesses fighting for control of her body she is suffering with dizzy spells and strange visions not to mention bumping into people she would rather have left in the past. It isn't looking like this is going to be the holiday of a lifetime that they had planned on.

I have enjoyed reading the Garnet Lacey series so was sad to discover that Honeymoon of the Dead was going to be the last book in the series. Garnet is a likable character - feisty and fun and her internal monologue usually has me laughing out loud. This series has been great for fun light reads but I have to say I was a little disappointed with this last installment.

There were so many things going on in the plot that the story felt a bit disjointed and I never felt that everything was completely resolved. One of my favorite things about the other books in the series has been the great cast of supporting characters. I have to confess that I've never been Sebastian's biggest fan so I was disappointed that Parish didn't make an appearance (although I guess that is understandable considering they are on their honeymoon!). We do get a brief visit from Matayas and William but I missed Izzy, Parish and the coven. It was nice to see Agent Dominguez again but we didn't get to find out anything more about him and he was there more as a convenience for the plot.

This is the last book in the enjoyable Garnet Lacey series and I miss her a little bit already. It continues the story from after Garnet and Sebastian's wedding, joining them as they "attempt" to go on honeymoon. For various worrying and supernatural reasons, their trip is not going as planned and they end up staying in Minneapolis rather than Europe. Garnet is struggling with now having two goddesses inside her, Lilith and Athena, especially as they don't seem too keen on keeping each other company in there and they have quite differing opinions on when to help Garnet out and when to leave her alone.

This installment fell a little flat, I felt, despite having the usual magickal goings on and good quality writing. I think it's because it was a little claustrophobic. All of the plot revolves tightly around Garnet and Sebastian and none of it happens in their home town. That means that we only get the merest glimpse of Matyas and William and absolutely nothing at all from any of the other recurring characters. The only person we do get more of is Agent Dominguez but we don't don't find out anything more about him or get to know him any better. He seems just to serve the plot as Garnet and Sebastian find themselves in trouble with the law quite a lot.

That aside- it was still worth reading and I am sad to see the back of Garnet. She was one of the more original characters that I've seen in this genre. I hope Tate Hallaway starts a new series with someone as feisty and interesting.

Format: Paperback
The vampire, Sebastian Von Traum, and the witch, Garnet Lacey, are finally married. But it seems as if the honeymoon will never begin. The newlyweds were supposed to be headed to Transylvania. Unfortunately, thanks to an ice-frost demon and her giant dog, they decide to deplane and are now stuck in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Well, in Saint Paul actually. It may be Garnet's old stomping grounds, but no one is too friendly with her. One of Garnet's former boyfriends, Larkin Eshleman, still claims to love her, even though he and his friends drug and kidnap her. Then there is the man who has been stalking Sebastian lately, James. Sebastian believes James is one of the Illuminati Watchers. Sebastian had been one of the Illuminati's founding members and the group likes to keep tabs on him.

To help Garnet through it all (or hinder her even more, depending on how you look at it) are two powerful entities. Athena (Goddess of War and Wisdom) and Lilith (Queen of Hell and Mother of Demons) both dwell within Garnet. Neither entity wants to share Garnet, so the witch is being treated to some fun-filled dizzy spells and strange visions. Good thing Garnet can depend on other sources, such as the FBI agent Gabriel Dominguez, for some aid.

*** THREE STARS! Characters from early titles reenter the story in the form of cameos or secondary characters. Word has it that this is to be the final installment of the series; however, I certainly hope that is not the case. I am left with too many questions on the fates of several characters. Written in the First Person, the author continues to treat readers with magical and humorous fun. Yet this time I never felt the danger, dread, or suspense as I did while reading the previous tales. Still, this story is a good choice to take along on your next vacation. ***

This is not a good finish to this series. It is difficult to know exactly what the author is playing at here. She introduces a whole set of new gods and godesses, mixing and choosing between different faiths and mythologies. Sebastian appears to be rather castrated and his role in the story is mainly to disapprove of Garnet and give her opportunities to hide things from him. We discover that Garnet wasn't very nice once upon a time, people appear quite peeved with her but it seems to have no effect. She returns to the scene of her original trauma and even raises the ghosts of the Vatican slayers and appears to have no remorse but to shrug off what Lilith did. Parish and Izzy and her new coven are absent. And then there are trolls, and characters from fairy stories !

Too many ideas, no real narrative structure and no real idea why she is stopping the series now. It actually makes you appreciate how well written the MaryJanice Davidson Betsy Taylor books actually are. This series has never been one of my absolute favourites but this is not a fitting end to what went before.

More like 2 1/2 stars.... 26 July 2010
By Deborah Wiley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sebastian Von Traum and Garnet Lacey are finally married and are going on their honeymoon... but things are about to go seriously awry. First, they create an "incident" when they refuse to stay on the plane after Garnet spots a Frost Giant on the plane's wing. Then, they realize they are stuck in Minneapolis with stalkers, gods, goddesses, and Homeland Security. Will Garnet and Sebastian ever get a true honeymoon or will all of the complications derail it permanently?

HONEYMOON OF THE DEAD is the fifth and final book in the Garnet Lacey series and frankly it is past time for this ending. Unfortunately, HONEYMOON OF THE DEAD is neither a stand alone nor does it satisfactorily conclude a series that has suddenly taken a downward spiral after the first three books were so spectacular. The paranormal elements are a better part of the story than in DEAD IF I DO where they seemed more an afterthought to an essentially chick lit book. Still, HONEYMOON OF THE DEAD seems disjointed, to say the least.

Garnet Lacey is a character I thoroughly enjoyed in the first three books. She was quirky and sometimes a bit temperamental thanks to her inner goddess, Lilith. I'm not sure what happened in the last two books but suddenly she's like the heroine in the horror movie that you scream at but she still opens the door and goes into the dark cellar. I couldn't help but sympathize with Sebastian for having to put up with her antics as Garnet sure didn't act like a happy bride on her honeymoon in this particular book!

Worse yet, the battles between good and evil that have made this series so interesting are practically nonexistent. Even William's brief appearance couldn't rescue a plot this full of holes. So many questions are left unresolved- even if it weren't the last book in the series, I would still feel dissatisfied as the plot seems more rambling than building towards anything. Skip this book and read the first three if you want to see just how good a Garnet Lacey book can be.

Sexy Witchy Series...last book? 15 Jan. 2014
By K. April Holgate - Published on Amazon.com
I go back and forth with this series, there are things I love and things that really annoy. I feel like I was missing something in this book, I am sure there is a short story out there with a plot of a Frost Demon. That part of this plot has too much not said for it to be a first time addition. I feel like I need to track it down and fill in the wholes.

We get more of Garnet's backstory, and find exactly why it is she may have ended up with Lilith. Gotta say, if I had not spent the last four book getting to know her, I would probably not like who she was. Way more shallow and self involved than her current personality would imply.

Some naughty steamy action, and oh boy, the details are just this side of erotic!! So close, Ms Halloway stops just short of the dirty talk!! Way to get a gal all hot and bothered!!

I listened to the audiobooks, narrated by the fabulous Amanda Ronconi!! Terrific characterizations and such a way of keeping the story moving at a steady pace!! Big love on this narrator, she never disappoints!!

Another action packed story, a few threads left loose at the end, I hope there will be a next book!! I have really come to love these characters and I think they have more to tell!! I also hope this is the end of the angst about Lilith, please let it be peace on that front!

Started Funny but in the end I didn't care. 14 May 2013
By Edward K. Lincoln - Published on Amazon.com
The title and first couple pages got me into it. It looked like it would be an amusing fluffy "Dodging monsters to get to the honeymoon destination" book that would be a nice antidote to some heavy science fiction I'm reading.. There was some interesting character development as the heroine realized she actually wasn't a very good person. Then the book sort of degenerated into chaos. There were multiple antagonists, none of who was developed sufficiently. I really didn't *LIKE* the main character. The love interest had no character...he was one of those "blow up dolls. The only character I kind of liked was the stepson Matyas, who was barely in the book. The end didn't give me any sense that anything was accomplished. Frankly, her new husband really should divorce the main character and run screaming.

Another Fun Read! 2 Aug. 2010
By Rebecca W - Published on Amazon.com

I enjoy the Garnet Lacey books. This one Garnet is facing her own personal demons...or some truths about her personality. It makes her witchy, goddess bearing self a little more human. As always this is a fun read.
