Editorial Reviews

Review

“This fourth book in Pettersson’s Sign of the Zodiac is a wild roller-coaster read. With a kick-ass heroine and characters who blur the line between good and evil, this book will have readers panting for more.” (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

“The Scent of Shadows came out of nowhere and slapped me silly. … You’re going to love this.” (Kim Harrison)

“From the one-damn-thing-after-another school of unputdownable books, The Scent of Shadows rockets into the air and explodes like fireworks, with nonstop bursts of action and imagination.” (Charlaine Harris)

“...Read at your own risk —it’ll keep you up past your bedtime.” (Charlaine Harris)

“Pettersson’s paranormal world is as original as it is compelling. The action comes fast and furious. Like Las Vegas itself, this is an adventure that’ll keep you up all night.” (Kelley Armstrong)

“Passion and intrigue, heartbreak and victory--THE TOUCH OF TWILIGHT offers an intricate plot populated with complex characters. Nothing is predictable in Vicki Pettersson’s newest novel . . . except the need to read more.” (Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Lovely)

One would expect the bads to want to do her harm, but it seems like the people who were supposed to have her back didn't.

City of Souls, the latest in the Signs of the Zodiac series, is the best in the series to date. I can't wait for the next installment because "J'Olivia" has pretty much hit rock bottom here and I'm wondering what she's going to do to climb back out. The concept of Midheaven is intriguing and I loved that we got more of a glimpse into it in this book. I know there are lots of folks out there wanting a Hunter/J'Olivia HEA at the end of the series but this is UF (and dark UF, at that)so there's no guarantee of that. And, quite frankly, I'm okay with it. This book shows that even super heroes, no matter how 'super' they are, they're still human with very real human flaws in their make-up. Vicki's writing has improved with each book and the plot twists have me guessing at what else could possibly happen before Jo snaps.Throughout the series I've come to love to hate some of the characters (Reagan and Warren) and at the same time hold out hope that others will do the right thing (Hunter and Jo; even Warren). The ending was gut-wrenching and although I felt a sense of betrayal in one of the characters, I hated that I was at the end because I wanted this character to be able to redeem themselves. I don't want to have to wait till next year to read what happens next. You can be sure that come release day, I'll be there with bells on (and money in hand) to snatch up book 5! You rock, Vick!

This is the 4th book in the Signs of the Zodiac series by Vicki Pettersson. It was my least favorite book in the series so far. Joanna is confused and is running around not accomplishing a whole lot for most of the book.

Joanna broke her changeling in the last book and because of that the Manuals of Light can't be written and the Light agents have lost all their safe zones. Needless to say the Agents of Light are in serious trouble. Warren tells Joanna that she better fix it ASAP and hints that Joanna will find her answers in Midland and that she should find the new tulpa (her doppelganger from the last book).

First for the good stuff. It was cool to learn more about Midland. It was also nice to have the doppelganger involved more. A lot of the plot elements relating to how the changelings affect the Agents' powers were really interesting.

Joanna screws up a lot in this book. Those who thought she was changing as a character in the third book will be disappointed. Even worse is the fact that many of the Agents of Light are not what they appear to be. By the end of the book I felt like there were no Agents of Light. I thought many of the characters acted very out of character; there weren't really any characters that I liked by the end of the book. The deal with Joanna and Hunter was kind of whacked; I can't say more without revealing spoilers. Also I thought it was odd how Joanna is trying to convincingly play Olivia's lifestyle in the beginning of the book but then she (kind of) forgets about being Olivia. There were some small parts where she has to "act like" Olivia; but there aren't really any repercussions for her walking out on the bachelorette party in the beginning or of her doing any other un-Olivia actions.

J'Olivia is stubborn, but strong.... she doesn't always make the best choices and in the past I have often found myself yelling at her in my head. She has grown as a person and character over the last 4 books and I can't wait to see where she ends up after book 5. I adore Hunter as a character, even with his flaws as considerable as they are - they make him real. (After reading this book you MUST read the short story Dark Matters from the Unbound anthology). Great strides and great setbacks in the relationship between Jolivia and Hunter in this installment. I am holding out hope for a Happy Ever After for the two of them, but being the dark urban fantasy that I consider this to be I realize it may not be possible. This book takes us through trust, betrayal, love, friendship, and more. I think it is easily my favorite of the series because of the emotional blow it deals to Jo. I look forward to where she can go from here.... She isn't a quitter. Somehow, Vicki Pettersson has the amazing ability to tear your heart out and leave you wanting more.

This book. Wow, this book. If you read the other reviews of it on Amazon, you will see that it was very polarizing: you either loved it or you hated it.

I kind of hated it.

The whole thing with trying to fix Jasmine - why couldn't that have been wrapped up in the last book?

The freaky weirdness of Midheaven. Time stands still there and let me tell you, it stood still while I was reading that part, too. I can see where Pettersson was heading and what she was trying to do, but it flopped in terms of reading it.

The whole thing with Hunter. Hmmmm.

Suzanne and Cher provide comic relief again. More people are found to be who they're not. And the Tulpa, who is so scary to everyone, continues to let Joanna live.

I think it's still an important book to read for the series, but you might hate yourself for doing it.
