Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

I had some issues with book one, but TBH first books in a sereis have a hard job to do with setting up a new world and characters and placing a good story so I like to try the second novel. Sadly for me I have the same issues here as in book one. Rookie Nexi is still the one with the answers all the while and yet the other Supernaturals have hundreds – probably thousands – of years of experience between them, and then my pet hate number two – she gets new powers and “knows” how to use them instinctively, just at the moment she needs them. I like my heroes/heroines to work for solutions, to use skills and powers we’ve already seen, and it just feels to me like a cop out when there’s an insta solution like this. Still, that’s my view and I’m sure other readers will have no problems with it. Kyden is a bit of an overprotective man here. I get he’s scared but this is Nexi’s job and she keeps having to remind him of that. she gets scared for him too – that’s natural and they have to work with it – everyone who cares for someone will feel this way, but it can’t get in the way of the job. I wasn’t really feeling the romance between them either – he’s over the top protective one moment, full on sex the next, but there doesn’t seem much build up, normal interaction that has that sensuality I enjoy. you know – the little comments and quips, the tiny connections that make up the day – its all or nothing with these two. The warlock – he doesn’t come in til close to the end, though I expected we’d see more of him. The overall plot feels a bit simplistic, and I struggled to stay interested. I guess its just a series that isn’t working for me, though its well written and will have many for whom it’s perfect. As ever not all books suit all readers, it’d be a dull world if they did.

Stars: Two, just didn’t work for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
