This was way more intense than I ever anticipated.

I'm going to say it now.

...


I loved this series way more than Cat and Bones.

THERE. I SAID IT.

The fourth and final is due out in 2016 but no over or details. Excuse me while I scour the interwebs for more info.

Sigh.

So some aspects got hella annoying here, but mostly I didn't care. I stated in the review of the first one I read these two in one day so it all sort of blurred together. I think I started this one around 8pm and was done around midnight, I don't even remember my husband putting my kids to bed.


*Shrug*

Also, I may be like 40 pages into the 3rd one already so um. I gotta go, bye.

Once Burned (Night Prince, #1) by Jeaniene Frost

Once Burned (Night Prince, #1)Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


All the stars!


What can I say? This is just one of those books that speaks to me, but I knew that would happen. Vlad has been my favorite in the Cat and Bones series, so, duh.

True story? I read this one and the second one in the same mother flipping day. Completely and totally absorbed. Infatuated is more like it. This was a rare reading moment for me, where all critical thinking turned off and I can't even think of anything to criticize.

I'm 100% certain that if I were to reread this at some point, I'd feel differently. BUT RIGHT NOW WHATEVER WHO CARES.

Have you ever clapped and giggled after finishing a book?

I have.

I'm going to say it. This is my favorite IA series. The Edge books were my favorite, but the way these two have tied together has soothed a long standing irritation.

If you felt wronged by lack of closure on Jack and George, read these now! You will be delighted.

Kate and her world has always had an end, a brilliantly conceived end that I eagerly await to enjoy and mourn. The Edge brought something new, and once again highlighted IA's ability to create magic that excites the mind, but it never felt finished. There were simply too many possibilities. This series has a thick thread is joy woven in all the pages, you can feel how much IA loves writing it. It's an intoxicating experience for a reader who is intimately familiar with an authors works. Although, if you never read anything by them, you would not be disappointed, it's wonderful through and through. I can't wait for more!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


WHY WAS THIS SO GOOD?

Ok, so this series needs to be expanded with a minimum of 5 more books, full length that explores every fucking aspect of this incredible universe.

Excellent, seriously.

Aliens? CHECK

Space travel? CHECK

Magical fucking house? CHECK

Fantastic new worlds? CHECK

Humerous and charming new characters? CHECK

The pure goodness only IA can deliver? CHECK.

Also, I spoted some adored characters all grown up!

LOVED IT. WANT ALL THE BOOKS.

Pointless. Plotless. I feel nothing.

I had a cathartic low with this series during Burned, I let it all out in my review and made peace with the loss. My expectations were hovering around "trash heap" for this book, I knew it would center around Mac, and Dani would be an odd after though of awkward proportions. I was correct. Essentially, nothing happens aside from a desperate attempt at character development, similar to a first book in a long series, so it feels out of place.

Mostly, I spent my time disinterested and mildly bored. You ever get back with someone who has cheated on you? They tell you all the things you want to hear, remind you of how good it was in the beginning, then shower you with love and attention. For a short while you remember, you feel it and then you go out to eat and all you hear is how loud he breaths, his once charming strong chin now looks comically out of place, and his jokes are childish and offensive. All the sudden you have no idea what you were thinking. He is trash. He is behind you. He is irrelevant.

That's precisely how I feel about this book. I'll read the rest of the series, for the same reason you don't unfollow him on Instagram.
