Great value for a complete set
on 19 November 2013
I had read the first couple of books in this series and they cost around £3 each. I am trying to cut down on clutter so I buy kindle books where possible. The later books in the series were not available until the complete set were released. At £4.99 for all six books this was fantastic value.
I decided to read the whole series from the start and I enjoyed them. The books are quite bleak with lots of gory action, romance takes a back seat to the action so not a series for those looking for hearts and flowers. Plenty of angst though and I did find the middle books a little hard going as a result. On one hand it is refreshing that a hard hitting, bitchy woman who can face down a crowd of bad guys without hesitation is still somewhat unsteady with regards romance, on the other hand it gets a bit irritating that someone so full of confidence is in such a mess with regards her love life and self esteem. After one particularly angst ridden section I decided that Jill probably reflect the reality that no one is confident or skilled in all life areas. The last two books put all that behind them and for me make a much better read as a result.
Similar in some ways to the excellent Dante Valentine series and if aything I think I prefer Jill to Dante - both take on far more than they can realistically chew, both are a bit needy and both excel at kicking a***.
