I loved learning more about Camp Hell and Victor's experiences, even though they were painful. The FPMP was spooky and interesting and I really do like that whole plot. I also adored Victor starting to come into his own, acknowledging that he'd been suppressing and downplaying his ability as a way of self-preservation. I really look forward to him become more comfortable with his ability.
I also thought Jacob's new-found ability was super cool, and I just loved his reactions.
Victor and Jacob's relationship felt more even in this one, though I do still have a bit of a problem with how Victor can't ever actually stay mad at Jacob, especially when Jacob is in the wrong. There was a fair bit of secret keeping on Victor's part in this book, but it was never for long, and he seemed more to do it in order to get his head around things, not because he didn't want Jacob to know. Which is more than Jacob could say last book...
Glad they finally talked about Crash, and *super* glad they said no threesome. I just really don't feel like it would have been a good fit for their relationship as we've seen it.
The sex continues to be hot, though I was pretty grossed out by the margarine-as-lube scene, not going to lie.
Jacob, I've already apologized to you. I am sorry, you know I have trust issues.
Vic is fantastically fantastic. Just love him.
Crash has grown on me significantly.
This one has some super hot moments, two really...holy crap the kitchen! Wow *fans self*
Things between Vic and Jacob have been somewhat strained and there are issues of--not trust as much as just being open--(they are different things!), I think. I was happy to see how that played out in this one, makes the relationship seem more realistic, if somewhat frustrating at times. Vic had a lot going on, with his partner and work, and the FPMP, Jacob and the whole thing with Stefan. I gotta tell you, I wasn't real excited about meeting him. There were times when I wished the "memories/flashbacks" were...different, but maybe that's not fair. I think it was handled well and it didn't make me feel icky or anything.
Lots going on, not sure who to trust or what's going on. Jacob got some good news, and that turned into something pretty cool. The ending was pure perfection.
Overall, loved it! Will of course continue with this series
"The map of the transit system should've been easy to read. I knew where I was, and I knew where I was going. The routes were color-coded. But there was that transfer thing, and the special Sunday turnaround, and every time I thought I had a handle on which train station I should go to, the route dissolved in my mind and I was left gazing at the big map and starting over again at "you are here." "
"Miraculously, nothing landed on my suit - which I was dying to get out of, but the thought of being naked with all that judgmental, muscular bulk in my house made me uneasy ..."
And Jacob, is ... well ... Jacob:
"I heard Jacob come in and bound up the stairs. He's got energy to do things like that, because he eats right, exercises, and doesn't take questionable pills."
And as ever present, there is the city of Chicago making its appearance subtly by description:
"A faraway gunshot, a few blocks away, at least. There weren't any followup shots, or screams or sires, either. Typical noise. I'd been sleeping through it for years."
Camp Hell brings some interesting changes to the series and it truly is one of my favorites in the series. To begin with, the book itself is longer than the earlier novellas - it is close to 300 pages. While this series has always been more character driven than romance focused, Vic and Jacob's relationship has some serious progression which is very nice to read about. Not only is their relationship progression, but Vic is getting closer to learning about his own history. Through an interesting method of writing flashbacks into the story, Ms. Price shows us Vic in his early twenties and what life was like for him while he was in Camp Hell. Vic reflects on his attitude when he was young and makes fun of who he used to be. In her typical style, the scenes are funny but emotionally gripping as well. One of the most rewarding parts of this book for me focuses on Jacob and what he learns about himself.
Jacob is more vulnerable in Camp Hell - vulnerable emotionally that is. He makes his love for Vic known and there are quite a few scenes that had me on the floor due to the sweetness. Basically, Jacob is becoming more three dimensional to the readers because, I think, he is becoming more three dimensional to Vic. He is not just beefcake anymore.
The hardest part of finishing Camp Hell (although I finished the book with a huge smile on my face) is knowing that there is only one more published book left in the series. Although Ms. Price is working on sequel which should be out later this year. Thank goodness..
