Not as good as the proceeding books
on March 4, 2014
This book wasn't bad but it didn't hold up to the book that came before it. The characters were all there, and the plot was mystery/action again, but something just seemed off. The story was interesting, or it could have been but I just never quite connected to it. The main character was surrounded by all the people that had been in the other books but she never really connected to them in any real way. It felt a lot like being surrounded by a crowd but not talking to any of them. The thing that I really like about these books is that the character doesn't try to go it alone. She uses the people around her to help her solve problems, and she treats them as the friends that they are, not as pawns. In this book the main character talks more to her snake tattoo that isn't a snake tattoo. That leads to a disconnect with the story. If she had actually talked to the other characters in the story then I would have been able to get into it more.
