2.0 out of 5 stars No, No, No - Where did the fire go?, 28 July 2008
This review is from: Upon the Midnight Clear (Paperback)
I don't even know how to describe what went wrong here. It's like the whole middle part of the book is missing. The text in my copy was huge, giving the illusion that this was a full length novel at 320 pages, but really it's more like 150. I was annoyed with every paragraph I had to trudge through to finish this book. It was formulaic, dull and corny. I like a little cheese with my romance but this is just not good.

The only thing that salvaged this book (and the reason for 2 stars not 1) was the short story at the end. It's like a little refresher course of the many books in the entire Dark Hunter / Dream Hunter series, which was a good thing if like me you have read all of the SK DH books in the official reading order as published on SK's website. Considering how many books there are you do sometimes forget what's come before.

I will stick with the DH series' because I've been waiting for Acheron's book for a long time, but this book has no real impact on the series and gives no more information on the key players in this world than you already have. I vey missable installment.

PS - Go to the SK official website or see my listmania list for the complete reading order. Although the Dark Hunter and Dream Hunter Series can be read independantly of each other, there are cross over characters so there is a combined reading order of the two series...
