Jul 21, Jen rated it it was ok Shelves: romance. I've really not enjoyed the last few Dark Ones novels, especially the ones with this main character. The first ones in the series are first and foremost romance novels. They have vampire characters in them I have to point out that this breed of "dark ones" are borrowed from Christine Feehan's series which has problems all its own , but the story is not overtaken by the supernatural concepts and is just good old story telling.
These last two novels feature a main character who is forever whining I've really not enjoyed the last few Dark Ones novels, especially the ones with this main character. These last two novels feature a main character who is forever whining about her plus sizeness and how horrible she looks and how drop dead gorgeous her vampire love is. If this character can't fathom how he can desire her, neither can the audience.
Also, the complete insecure mess that she is about herself is at odds with her kickassness that she trys to portray the rest of the time. Does this make the character complex?
I say no-it only makes her a mess and not an interesting one. Macalister's snarky humour is usually a hit, but in these novels it just comes across as contrived and desperate.
These are the first of her novels that have felt completely forced. I could almost feel the underlying sentiment of "must write at least 5 pages today to meet deadline. I know she can do much better and has.
Perhaps she needs to focus more on quality than quantity for a while she is writing YA novels, the Dark Ones series, Aisling Gray novels, as well as the Silver Dragons. View 1 comment. Jun 29, Gavin rated it liked it. This keeps the same lighthearted and humorous feel as the first book. I loved the banter between Pia and Kristoff. The secondary characters also added a lot of humor.
Mattias was the main source of comic relief in this book. I happy with how things developed between Pia and Kristoff as a couple. They are both likable characters and it was easy to want their relationship to succeed. The plot was a bit convoluted and ridiculous at times, but still fun and nothing to be taken too seriously.
There was a fairly big plot inconsistency at the start, but it can be forgiven since it was rectified at the end and never really hindered my enjoyment of the story.
I'm not sure I was happy with Alec's role in this story, but hopefully he will have more of a chance to redeem himself in his own book Much Ado About Vampires. There was also a few other minor subplots that I wish were wrapped up.
Like the identity of the Ilargi and the saving of the final ghost!. That aside this was a fun read. View 2 comments. This is basically the second! I was really really irritated with that book because the previous 5 books in the series were pretty much stand-alone stories told in the same world same vamp mythology, etc. I digress. This was a fine ending to the story that began in Zen, This is basically the second!
This was a fine ending to the story that began in Zen, but overall the whole story arc was just ok. Kind of convoluted. I laughed out loud a few times, but I also found the main character to be kind of annoying. MacAlister's female leads are always more on the svelte side, but why do they all have to have body image issues?!
Can't one like the way she looks? Gah, whatever. If you're looking for a light beach read with some humorous romance and vampires, pick up BOTH of the books. Apr 09, Cassie rated it it was ok Shelves: paranormal , read-in This was really boring.
I mean, really boring. I thought it might be that I'm reading this series all at once, but I don't think that's it. I think the series is just getting worse. The repetition is a little more annoying now and the humor is less humorous. I just think there should be an instance where Pia looks at Kristoff and sex isn't mentioned or had. May 15, Victoria rated it it was amazing. Pia and Kristoff are an interesting pair.
Mar 02, Spanxmcb Yovanka rated it really liked it. Light like the last in the series when we first meet Pia. It ended in a very anticlimactic way but pleasantly and lightly enough that it wasn't outside of the established style of the previous novel.
I know that I've kinda jumped into the middle of this series and I'm jumping back out again as well. It is cute and light and not really what I feel like reading right now. Entertaining and enjoyable if that's what you're up for though. Nov 17, Danielle rated it really liked it Shelves: urban-fantasy-fiction , books-i-own. As good as I expected. I thought that this story would just be a straight forward romance because the first book, Zen and the Art of Vampires , involved mostly mystery.
However, this book revealed a lot about Kristoff's and Alec's past,the history of the Brotherhood of the Light, and also showed how Kristoff's and Pia's relationship was cemented. In the last book, Pia turned out to be Kristoff's Beloved and not Alec's as everyone expected. However, Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang explained that Kristoff left at the end of first book because he felt that Pia preferred Alec to him.
So he magnanimously decided that he would give her the chance at a relationship with Alec eventhough it would kill him to not be with her. At the beginning of the story, Kristoff had practically wasted away to nothing and was dying without Pia.
This concept that a man cannot survive without a woman, is a very appealing ideology!!! After this misunderstanding is cleared up, Pia and Kristoff set off to find Alec who has been missing since leaving Iceland in the first book and "exacrete" the author's word choice, not mine from her position as the Zorya. In this quest, they unearth many secrets and unsolved mysteries, such as who killed the Zorya Anniki in Pia's bathroom, when and why did the Brotherhood start chasing Vampires, who is the Ilargi and finally whether or not Kristoff loved Pia.
