I'm sure all these rave reviews are the paid review sites you hear about, cause this book, like the last is so riddled with grammar and editing errors I can't see how anyone with give it a 5 star review.
The story is all over the place with names just too silly ever for AJ Alto to stick in a story.
And where the ending is going, especially after the last book, No bueno.
Bye Marnie you were awesome while you had your grove
While I've been able to find a few gems through Amazon's book borrowing program, most of the available titles in the areas of my interest are formulaic, seriously lacking in proper editing, poor copycats of successful major published works, or excuses for 'authors' to indulge in writing pornography with no character, world, or story building evident.
All that being said I am pleased to take the time to give my hearty recommendation for the Marnie Baranuik Files series. I have read all books so far, (and am eagerly hoping for more), so my review applies to them in entirety.
Vampire literature has run the gamut from truly horrifying to ridiculous, but A. J. Aalto has managed to provide a fresh new perspective on vampire culture and history, along with a world that supports the idea of the 'supernatural' in an easy "suspension of disbelief". Her main characters are well fleshed, highly individualized, exhibiting dichotomies that real people have, (i.e., Marnie's extreme intelligence and education contrasting with her prolifically embellished profanities - or Harry's extreme concern for others vs. his lack of ability to love), and entirely believable in the world she's created. While there are some 'sex' scenes, they are entirely appropriate to the story, and they are not overdone.
This series provide mystery, maudlin, adventure and humor at a great pace. I found myself laughing out loud at Marnie's "colorful metaphors" - so much so that I had to share her brilliant new ways of swearing with my husband, who has now been inspired to read the series.
I stayed up too late many nights reading this series and am very much looking forward to doing so again. If you are a fan of the supernatural genre and are looking for something well written, well edited and highly entertaining - look no further.
I am left with a major question about Dunlop though, Mark had to have warned him about the type of person Marnie is. Why the hell did he treat her the way he did? Like of course she is going to defend herself from some creepy ass dude, and did Mark laugh his ass off when Dunlop came back with scissors in his ass??
New authors take note: this writer gives you a full novel complete with climax and denouement. She also is a good enough writer to make you want more. This is your example of how to write a series.
