Please stop the constant recap!!!!!!
on 20 August 2014
I love the Kate Daniels series. I constantly read the blog, and I love that they write free fiction.
But what I don't like is that the book has constant and I mean constant explanation of what happened previously.
This is the 7th book, yes the seventh book of a series. Do the editors not realise we have read the previous 6, and are reading the 7th for a new story.
Ignoring the backstory given by Barabas (which I skipped) the main text constantly (yes that word again) explains itself. From chapter one, we are introduced to Kate and Ascanio. Even though we just got a character description, and a back story, the character's appearance and back story are given to us again "Ascanio wasn;t just handsome: he was beautiful.." Yes we know,
When Kate's apartment is mentioned, we get the back story about her aunt, well you know what, we know. This is book 7, I have read book 4, I am a fan, please treat me like one. I recently read "book of life" by deborah harkness, and I loved like "book of shadow" she launches straight into the story, with very little back story and past character explanations. Please treat us like fans
