I'm a little embarassed to say that I enjoyed the show based on Tanya Huff's books more than I enjoyed the books themselves. I think iTunes recommended the show to me...? Probably? Anyway, I loved it. I was so excited when the books finally came to kindle. And then I bailed on what I believe was the third one. The one....hmmm. I don't want to spoil them for someone who hasn't read them. If you haven't read the books. look away now...The one where they killed her mom. I couldn't make it past the third chapter of that one. And it was a slog to complete the one before that.
(You can look back now, if you were looking away).
The one before that, ironically, contained a marathon. I felt like I had run a marathon by the time I finished that one.
Also, I have enjoyed True Blood the past several seasons, but this season kinda sucks so far. It's not based on any of the books that I can tell. It's just torture pr0n and vampire politics. I could read an Anita book and get that. Poor use of the actors and the time, imho. I mean, I hope someone is enjoying this season, because I'm not even rushing home now to see the beginning of it. "The Newsroom", otoh, was awesome.
