A Book Of Two Halves
on 14 November 2010
This is a strange book. It's the 8th book in the Rachel Morgan series. In the books Morgan (a witch) works with Ivy Tamwood (a vampire) and Jenks (a pixie) as she battles the forces of the dark side.
In this book, the witches coven hear that Morgan works with demons to "do down" the baddies and decide that she needs to be reigned in. They tried "shunning her" at the end of last book. When that didn't work, they decided to be more proactive and attmpt to arrest her (and send her to Alcatraz) or lobotomise her.
The first half of the book is good. It sets up the arrest attempts well and I was thinking (at that stage) that this was the best book in the series. The problem is that I think that once she gets to the "dealing with the coven" stage, it takes too long to get to a conclusion.
Through the second half of the book, I was thinking "Come on, come on, get a fricking move on." In short, it dragged and that dragged down my view of the whole book to my mind.
