Not as good as the first two in the series. Slow, though quite a bit happens in the last two chapters.,
This review is from: Rogue Descendant (Nikki Glass) (Mass Market Paperback)
I had reservations about this series, after finishing the excellent Morgan Kingsley Exorcist tales, but book 1 was an excellent - if a bit brutal and shocking - surprise, and book 2 added to that. I think with this book, I expected the same pace and more development in the series, and whilst certainly there is a lot of the latter, it's not until the last two chapters.
This was, I'm sorry to say, a pick-up-and-put-down tale, and it took me days of bath-time reading to finish it, but it turned out to be a good tale. I can't tell you much, or it will spoil it, but the tiger on the front cover is very relevant/emotions - love, hate, anger, fear and betrayal - abound in this, and there's a hint of a romance for Nikki, though at the end of the tale, the author introduces a twist/there is danger, there are deaths and re-births, deaths without rebirths, betrayals and double-crossing/certain characters who I thought I'd sussed surprised me, and of course, there was a (should, and could, have been more epic) battle at the end. Of course, too, the tale finishes with the reader wondering what else could happen next, as two main-ish/highly relevant characters meet their end in this tale, one of them having being framed...
This wasn't as polished a read as the first two books, and the author, whilst still writing from Nikki's POV in the first person, got muddled with her verb tenses a few times, distracting me from the actual tale. Her editor should definitely have picked up on these, as there really wasn't a need for them, though I think the author was trying to go for emphasis with the changes.
Overall, a decent enough read, with lots happening...slowly...but it could and should have been so much more...everything...after all these are the Children of the Greek Gods.
