Top critical review
Half great and half horrendous
on 23 May 2017
This is the first time I have felt the need to write a review. Like many others I have been an avid fan of this series since the beginning and it was fantastic to read the first half of this book. The author seemed to be back on track, although a similar feel to obsidian butterfly with Anita, Edward, Bernardo and Olaf off to hunt some evil, super powerful vampire. There was a real story line and seemingly acceptance from Anita of her various powers. The detective stories were apparently back on track and it was gripping and thrilling.
Despite this, the climax (no pun intended) of the storyline fell completely flat and simply dissolved into more meaningless sex with as many men as possible. Really disappointing ending to a fantastic start. It appears Laura lost all motivation or perhaps time to finish it and so reverted to the classic fall back of more metaphysical sex, caused by a powerful vampire.
I, for one, cannot stop reading these books, but I hope they eventually get better. Personally I feel, if she wanted to be an erotic writer maybe Laura could start a new series and not ruin the bad ass executioner we all love.
