i'm sorry to post this so late, it was ready the beginning of the week but since my weekend was spent organising a special 24h ( which lasted even longer) Chtullu roleplaying game party.. i was simply too worn out to remember that i needed to post this review.
I haven't recovered yet either as more things piled up but slowly i will and let's start by this long awaited review of a far from new series but on ei'm only discovering now.
Publisher: Ace Books
Genre: urban fantasy
Public: 18+Source: won
It took me quite a time before starting this series, somehow i was a little afraid but after reading the novella in the Dark secrets anthology, i wanted to read more of this author and thankfully i remembered that i had this book in my pile soi could start without delay.
I do like the author ‘s writing style, it’s clear and she built an interesting universe even if i don’t have all the rules yet, for example she tells us that vampires are the last one to have revealed their existence and got special right... i would have wanted to know a little more about the others paranormals.
The characters are well buit and so far i prefer Sam... who is there and loyal but not too much on the “ ownership” side. Bill intrigues me he does seem to care for Sookie but somehow i’m not at ease with him. As for Jason, Sookie’s brother.. so far i dislike him greatly... i hate his behaviour but even more his reaction to Sookie past... of all other he should have been the one to trust her but not only he doubted her but he even accused her.
Sookie is interesting...she had a difficult life and her gift didn’t help ut despite everything she still is kind and looks for the positive... i quite admire that.
No i do prefer when the romance is building slowly along the book when it’s a serie slike this one so having Sookie jump in bed in teh first book bothered me a little even if i do understand the circonstances and the importance of it for the plot so it’s okay just not what i prefer.
The plot, hum it’s okay i did guess the murderer identity but i’m more curious about the problem Eric is at this time. The rythm is just what it should be and it’s read quite easily.
I do plan to continue this series and i have the second one ready in the pile , i think so at least, so we will see if the pleasure continues
