I decided to read through till the end before I put a final judgement on them, but I have to say, they aren't worth it. They feel more like rough outlines for books, not even a draft. They lack detail, emotion, a real plot line and the writer can't even stick to her own rules in her books. For example, ghosts can't touch things and interact with the living, remember their deaths in one book, and then several books later they can do all three. There are obvious plot holes and it's incredibly off putting, it's like a five year old was told to write a story when they really didn't want to.
The characters have no personalities or emotions which on a few occasions led me to become confused when the characters POV's switched. I mean, you've just died / watch someone be killed, why no reaction? And why does every female character call everyone 'honey' and why does EVERY character say at least once 'Damn it all'.
The lack of detail is really off putting. Some of these scenes could be incredibly epic if fleshed out, but Cross goes for less than the basics. Without giving anything away, characters obviously die and they all experience things for the first time; surely they'd feel the need to look around occasionally? Plus, they are constantly stating they have all the time in the world, they have time to talk about how they're feeling, what's around them, who they're with, all that kind of stuff, but no, no they do not.
I'm giving it two stars as like I said, I got what I paid for, I wasn't expecting the next Harry Potter, Twilight, Bible and whatever other bestsellers you want to add in. I was however expecting something that could pass as a thought out story, so based on that, two stars.
Be prepared for savage violence, explicit sexual acts and shocking language
Plus a confusing and long drawn out book which despite my determination to finish left me none the wiser at the end as to who was who and who won what !
However it was an interesting plot once I managed to get my head round
it, but please Amy, get yourself a good editor !
I love originality of Amy Cross' books and the twists and turns and clever way each piece of the puzzle finally connects.
It is fast paced and well written (despite the many typos) - I particularly like the numerous first person points of view. Yes, it has strong language and scenes of violence but only those fitting to this excellent horror story.
A very entertaining read.
