Review: Destined for an Early Grave by Jeaniene Frost



May Contain Spoilers

Wah! I was disappointed with Destined for an Early Grave. It seemed so forced and pointless, compared to the previous installments of the series (which, let’s face it, are nothing more than escapist shenanigans. There’s a naughty vampire – let’s kill him). Let’s make an excuse for Cat and Bones to argue, break up, and get back together again. Sigh. Not what I was hoping for.

Review by Poo Penny

BLEGH. If questionable consent is your thing, then you are really gonna like this book. I don’t get it, and I am ok with it. It was just too rapey for me. I like when there is a clash of wills, and the seduction is a little more intense, but not when the heroine is kind of a wuss. She had absolutely no spine. When she finally DID get a spine, I was wondering, why didn’t she kick the crap out of him a little more? She just bitch slapped him, and that was lame. So yeah, there is that. It makes no sense, because after this I read The Pawn, and I actually liked that story line a little more, but the heroine had a little bit of the same problem, being a total wuss.

At Grave’s End

This book was over the top! It was still fun to read, and I will be continuing on with the series, but I am still stuck on the whole master vampires can fly. And lord knows what else.

This installment has one of Cat’s team requesting to be turned into a vampire, old grudges threaten Cat’s life and those around her, and Mencheres and Bones get a little cuddly. I am a little over how in love everyone seems to be with Cat, why does everyone have to have a hard on for the main characters so much? Tate really enjoys riling up Bones this installment, which is pretty funny most of the time.

Grade: 3 stars

I have been holding off on reading this installment of the Mercy Thompson series until the perfect time for me.  In other words, when I needed a pick me up.  With a rainy weekend looming, and a gimpy dog to worry me, I decided it was past time to find out what troubles were in store for our intrepid heroine, whose superpower, in her own words, are causing chaos.

Mini Review: Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews

Well, another freaking great novel in the Kate Daniels series. I am SO happy I have the next 2 books at my side, and that my library has the next 2 waiting for me to pick up, because I would drink myself into oblivion if I didn’t have them. It’s not hard to do, I have the same tolerance as Kate does in that bathtub scene, a beer and I am loopy. Just ask my husband!

Well, seriously, get on these books! I love them! They just get better and better. I don’t know how they do it. I just hope I get a Kate, Curran, and Derek OD soon or I wont know what to do.
