The series as a whole is a fast-paced, highly readable story, which I recommend if you have the time to read through the five books over a few months. I read the books over the course of two years, waiting for the new books to be published, and I found it annoying to have the underlying mystery dragged out for that long, not to mention the problem of forgetting key elements between books.
I enjoy stories in which the characters return for new adventures at the hands of masters such as Michael Connelly, Lee Child and J.D. Robb. Even though there are references to the past, each of their books is a self-contained story; you generally aren't left hanging. I consider a trilogy to be the absolute max for a serial and think the Erin Solomon mystery really would have been better if it hadn't been spread out over five books. Having said that, I think Jen Blood is an excellent writer who is just beginning to realize her potential.
The Book of J has lots of exciting elements, including snowstorms, murder, explosives, gun battles, mentally unbalanced people with weapons and characters who straddle the line between good and evil.
Erin and Diggs return to Payson and the memories start coming back to Erin. She sees the spirits of two of her childhood friends and they lead her to the secrets...but in the meantime she and Diggs have uncovered the next J driven atrocity is going to occur right there in Littlehope and time is running out..... With Jenny on the loose killing as many J plants as possible, Cameron on the island supposedly helping them and more shocking revelations concerning J and even Diggs father.the story sucks you in and you are right there with them....right in the story and you can't put it down...
Great book- I loved it and highly recommend everyone read the whole five book series! You will definitely not regret it...and will end hoping for more Diggs, Erin, Einstein, and Jack...we need to find Jacks story next...
As far as the characters go, while Erin and Diggs are hardened from their experiences, their relationship is intact and I love how human and real their relationship is. All of the characters share one commonality and that is coming to terms with their past in a way to navigate a better future. That's all I'm going to say because I don't want to give anything away. Just read this book and be warned that you won't be able to put it down once you begin.
But, seriously, what a phenomenal ending to one of the most well-written, fantastic series I've ever had the pleasure to read! Not only are Erin and Diggs at the very top of my 'Favorite People Ever' List, but Jack, Kat and Maya are also very high on said list. Jen Blood has a way with words and has created a stunning universe, magnificent characters and an unforgettable story, not only in 'The Book of J', but throughout the entire 5-book series.
Even though we have to say goodbye to the Erin Solomon series, my fingers are tightly crossed for a few more glimpses into the life of Erin and Diggs, as well as more to Jack Juarez's story. Without giving anything away, there were several "Oh, reeeaallly" moments surrounding Jack that I would love to see developed. Possibly a book of his own? (And to think, I didn't even really like the guy when he was introduced in the first book!)
So thank you, once again, Jen Blood, for sharing this world and these characters with us. It's been an incredible, emotional, wonderful ride.
If the other four books were fast-paced, book five is in full throttle. Erin Solomon and her long-time lover, Diggs will uncover the truth, or die trying.
Once again, I found myself asking, how can two people survive so many beatings, gunshot wounds, and bombs as these two characters?
I loved the intrigue and romance of this series and with each installment anticipated loose ends to be tied up in a pretty bow of resolution. It didn’t happen; too many characters vied for the spotlight leaving behind unanswered questions.
Although, I enjoyed the writer’s voice and loved the characters in this series, stretching the storyline to five books was a bit tiring. My biggest beef with all five books was the indestructibility of the characters against every type of violence imaginable, but I kept reading. You may have a different view. The Book of J.

Jen is a wonderfully imaginative and creative writer and I would recommend her books to everyone who likes an inventive, fast-paced, absorbing adventure story. Her principal characters are attractive, memorable, occasionally mysterious, endearing (in particular Erin, the headstrong heroine). I shall miss them all!
