Long story short, this book was a step up from Summer Knight.

This book saw the return of Susan, Harry’s girlfriend that took off at the end of Grave Peril and has been keeping a low profile.

There is kind of an elephant in the room that sort of needs to be pointed out: the scene between Harry and Susan. Don’t wanna spoil it for anyone that hasn’t read it but those that have will know what we mean.

Wow. Was totally not expecting that. Not that it wasn’t a well written scene and didn’t make sense but it kinda came out of left field.

Other than that, it is difficult to say anything about this book that we haven’t already said about the previous ones. It is getting a little tiresome hearing everyone tell Harry that he’s about to die and that he would be better off cowering in a cave somewhere.

Dani’s 2¢

I actually can’t think of anything further to say. Looking at the series overall, I do want to read more but really hope the overall story picks up pretty soon.


6-it was good

Greg’s Thoughts

This one was better than the last in that I was truly creeper out by the bad guys. They were terrifying and an unknown entity. I loved the problems facing harry. This wasn’t just some other case.
I was happy to see Susan again. Her fight to not eat harry added more on top of the problems that harry had. It made his struggle more real and I loved seeing them trying to work it out.
This series has so long to go and I am looking forward to every step. I really hope that Harry gets a rival that is always one step ahead of him ahead and last more than one book. I want him to have his Moriarty to his Sherlock. But that’s just me.
7-liked it
