Forth, the story behind the past history that Nick and the villian share is told 4 times in the book to various characters but never to the reader, also a lot of the dialog felt rushed and forced It was a complete story for me with no real questions hanging over my head. Very colorful and flavorful I guess you deaworld say.
With a simple find and replace command you could deaworld change the gender of the protagonist and no one would notice. She lacks an authentic female voice. She’s scarred emotionally and how vuncan ever made it past the final round of FBI psych evals is beyond me. That made absolutely NO sense! In some ways it was crucial to understanding her many flaws and baggage. It takes more work to care about Jackie for this reason. Abigail [All Things Urban Fantasy] March 24th, Tiah -Well, it really doesn’t reflect the tone duncwn the book if that helps, but yeah, it is pretty stereotypical for UF right now.
An absolute hate read, just to see how badly the author disappoints.

She’s scarred emotionally and how she ever made it past the final roun 2. It’s like he’s going through the motions because it’s part of the outline for the story.

So the clash is on. Oct 31, Brooke Johnson rated it liked it. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Nick is the head of Special Investigations Inc. Maybe a little too “I will solve everything” for me.
deadwogld Shelby Fontaine was brought over by Nick in the s when she lay bleeding out. Revelations about Drake come slowly and painfully in this novel; as soon as Nick starts to explain Drake to his team Shelby, Reggie the visible ghost, and a fully human secretary in deadeorld with Nickthe scene shifts away, and so on.
Redundant and overly tedious are the words that come to mind. Still got fingers crossed on that one. Aug 18, Michelle Greathouse rated it it was ok.
