After reading this latest book in the Argeneau series, all I can say is “wow.” And not a good “wow”. I have never been so disappointed in any book in this series before. There were several plot twists that were practically screaming “LOOK! HERE I AM! USE ME!” (dual life mate, corrupt Council) And I kept hoping something would take off in that direction, but no. Nothing. I find myself lost after reading this latest book. Jess seems to have a brain, and a spine, but continuously refuses to use either of them. And Raffaele in my honest opinion is one of the lamest Immortal hero figures of this series I have ever seen. The whole book came across as boring to me. Even the parts that should have been amusing seemed forced. Contrived even.
There was just nothing there to grab me in, nothing to keep the action pounding. Jess and Raffaele are two of the most forgettable characters I have read about. Where is the intensity of Lucian? The adorableness of Bricker? The quiet confidence of Mortimer? Where are the men I love to fall in love with when I read this series? The 5 men in this book are seriously lacking. I have read every single Argeneau book written so far. I found this book very disappointing and forgettable. I never thought I would say this but I am sorry I spent the money on it.
This book started out with a good premise but the plot dragged throughout the while book. I didn't connect with any of the characters because mainly they were boring and just plain stupid. I spent most of my time slapping my forehead in disgust. I like Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series but this one was just plain awful.
I don’t know when I have ever hated a book as much as this one, crude, crude, crude and so boring! I have read most, if not all of her books, enjoyed most; have been disappointed before, but not like this. Not sure if I will buy another one.
Ugh. Honestly I can’t understand anyone giving it a good review unless it’s loyalty to the author. I was thoroughly bored throughout the whole book. Seriously who did she really love?? Was it just nanos? God. What a wimp. And so was Rafaelle. And the pirate after all these years still talks like he was in the 1500’s but the ones from two thousand years ago manage to talk normal? Ridiculous!
