Micah was one of my refuges. His arms, his body, his smile. His quiet acceptance of me, violence and all. Now I was back to being scared. Shit.
With that said, this book must have been rushed. Either it was rushed or it took awhile to write because it was…boring. 😦 I really dislike writing negative reviews, but this is one of my least favorite books in this series. Total bummer.
The ardeur completely changed the direction of this series. Once, Blake was a strong-minded, arrogant and a complete prude.
Through ties to Jean-Claude I’d inherited some abilities. One of those abilities was the ardeur. It was as if sex were food, and if I didn’t eat enough I got sick.
This book takes you out-of-town. Blake needs to raise a zombie for the courts and in order to survive the ardeur, she must bring a sweetie with her or ravage some unworthy stranger.
Micah accompanies her, and although there are mild disagreements between them, it’s more or less a yawn grasping story.
I really should give this review my full attention and try to point out some interesting aspects but unfortunately, there are none.
Zombie. Sex. Death. Survival. That about sums it up.
The truth may not set you free, but used carefully, it can confuse the hell out of your enemies.
I recommend this book to those reading this series. It can actually be skipped over and not mess with the storyline. If you’re anything like me, you’ll suffer through the book because skipping is cheating. Not to mention the OCD would just go all wacky ..
Mild sexual content, mild violence. I recommend this book to mature adults.
