Vampire musician Michael Glass has attracted the attention of a big- time producer who wants to cut a demo and play some gigs-which means Michael will have to enter the human world. For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell...
It pains me to say it, but I was not impressed.
I believe that when there is a change of scenery-a relocation of sorts- in a book, it rarely goes well.I've read at least 5 books in which something like that happened.I think it's because it's taking some time to get readjusted to new locales and most importantly,the sense of familiarity you have after seven consecutive books placed in a specific town, is lost.
Well, I was surprised to find that in the first half of the book it worked very well.I liked scenes like the ones in the gas station, the spooky motel, the one with Eve's new car.But when Morley appeared, I felt a bit let down.I never really liked his character,I don't think he has anything to add to the books other than his smartassness,which is getting tiring.I'm not saying that the writing is poor, even if I don't like the book much that is never the case with Caine, but scenes after Morley's appearance, despite being action packed, fell short for me.The rogue vamp case, two books after Bishop has been destroyed, was pretty old and a dead end.Also, as far as the characters are concerned, I'm starting to get the feeling that the boys are a bit clingy, always hugging the girls and kissing them, even when in mortal peril.I hope Caine will limit that a little bit.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I hated the book, I just didn't love it.I think that Caine should start thinking of a good arc story fast.Waiting on Ghost Town in November.
