3 words I would use for this book is eventful, steamy and better-than-it-looks. (Ok, i cheated. so sue me ;P)
I was overall positively surprised by this book. I expected a quick, noncommittal and easy read during a busy work week and got a book that I did not want to put down.
What I enjoyed about the book:
- Characters. They feel real and alive. No prince charming or the perfect warrior-princess, but actual flawed people (that I sometimes wanna smack over the head for stupidity). And that’s what I like. Room for improvement and growth.
- Steaminess. Have to mention this because it’s New Adult, and it is acceptable as New Adult. Meaning it does not turn into erotica but ceeps it clean but still “fogging-up-the-window”-steamy.
- Pacing. Just overall good flow and a real knack for the timing with plottvists and humor.
What was ok/could have been better:
- Plot. Mayhaps it’s not that innovative, but it works. Two people bonding together to fight evil and develops feelings for eachother. You may sigh and think “Here we go again..”, but it works because the great things I listed above makes it colourful.
- Environment. Most people know a bit about New Orleans, but that’s not an excuse to not give the surroundings life. Especially since it’s it’s New Freaking Orleans! Bring on the colour, music, food and craziness! But alas.. It’s more like a roadmap, some statements that New Orleans is crazy to live in and one random strange dude.
What I did not like:
- Honestly, the only thing I dislike is the fact that it’s not excellent. There were just somethings that was missing. It could have been great but settled for good. Maybe I make no sense, but that’s how I feel.
If you are into new adult (and old enough), like the supernatural theme and want a quick fun read, you should pick this one up. And I’ll be starting the next in the series right.. now!
I love the character Tink! If you meet him, tell him I have a room ready for him to move into and all the cereal he could wish for!
