The In Death series can be generally divided between character-centric stories and case-centric ones. Apprentice in Death is the latter, but even though my preference is for books with character growth, I ended up loving this case. It was fascinating to watch the pieces of the puzzle come together, and the more layers that were revealed about the stone-cold killer’s character the more my interested was piqued. The sheer number of potential victims weighs on Eve and her team heavily, and it also added a tenseness to the tale that kept me turning the pages of the book late into the night. It’s a twisted tale, though not in the usual sense; the apprentice is somewhat reminiscent of an earlier In Death killer (and I can’t reveal which character or the book they’re from without spoiling this story). Equally appealing is watching how Eve’s mind works as she makes the connections that will lead her to master and apprentice. While a number of faces old and new (Roarke in particular) are invaluable to solving this case, it’s Eve and the unique way she thinks that is the most fascinating to me.
The In Death books can largely be read as standalones, and Apprentice in Death is no exception. That being said, if this is your first foray into the series the mystery will still be appealing, but the small, personal moments in the book might not hold the appeal they do to readers more invested in the characters. And fans of the series, fear not: there are enough personal moments in this book to satisfy and perhaps even tug on your heartstrings a bit. The further into the series we get, the fewer opportunities for big personal drama there are, and that’s ok. The bonds of love and friendship still shine and added to my investment in the tale. All in all, I loved Apprentice in Death and I cannot wait to see what J.D. Robb has in store for Eve and Roarke!

It truly pains me to say that it took me almost a week to finish this one. The plot was predictable and moved slow, the characters were flat, and aside from the introduction of a new character (which I assume we will hear more about i future books), there was no character development. The writing itself was good, and maybe if I had never read an In Death book I may have enjoyed this one more. I won't be re-reading this one.
There are books in this series I like more then others Apprentice In Death is one of the books in the series I can see myself re-reading. As I like both the cases build up and resolution. Along with the flow of the Characters development between Eve and Roarke.
I also liked how the personal friendships outside of the case were included towards the end of the book this time. I like to see interactions with Mavis and the Miras etc... outside of work . I'm just not a fan of it being sandwiched in between the case's storyline. Especially when there is no direct correlation.
It is my opinion that the In Death series aren't stand alone books because with a long-time storyline there are things which would be lost or confusing. Otherwise I would recommend this series to others who like crime/romance books.
