5.0 out of 5 stars Another great addition, 26 May 2009
This review is from: White Witch, Black Curse (Rachel Morgan 7) (Paperback)
I really enjoy this series as Rachel learns lessons and develops as a character as a result, which opens up more avenues and prevents me from wanting to rip the book up in frustration.

In this installation, we go back to Kisten which makes me very happy as I found the fact that his death didn't seem to cause much of a ripple very disconcerting.

This book is not as strongly plotted as some of the others, I was still waiting for the `main action' to kick in when I realised I was two thirds of the way through the book. I think is because of the number of sub plots and loose ends that were being tied up. Despite this all of our favourite guys are back, although I can't help but feel that the Trent character has changed; disdain of Rachel's actions is spot on, but fear? Hmmm. The banter is as sharp as ever, and I note that one or two phrases (`my face went numb/ cold' for example) that used to irritate me with their frequency have mysteriously disappeared.

I haven't read all of the anthology contributions, so I didn't know who Pierce was... and can't help but feel that he is a little forced. Okay, so I don't like the character, but I do feel that his intro is clumsy and that his sub plot is pretty irrelevant, further distracting us.

So- a lot of complaints, but still five stars. Why? I still ripped through the book ridiculously fast and enjoyed every second.
