The whole series is a great read and I think aimed for the YA/adult market.
Personally I would suggest reading all books in order to get the most of these books. Even though the author does go over some of what occurs in the previous books I don't think readers will get the full picture unless they read them all, which in turn will give them better understanding of some of the characters.
It was great to catch up with Gideon and Abi again as well as the other familiar characters and some new ones. It was kind of obvious with how the second in the series ended how the story was going to play out in this one. Not that, that made it any less enjoyable as it doesn't.
I love Natasha, she has been through quite a journey in her relatively short life which I think makes her a lot more maturer for her age, though she is still very vulnerable. She is a really good kid though whose heart is very much in the right place.
The author seems to spend quite a bit of time going back and forwards in the books so that we can find out things about the characters in the past and obviously to what's going on in the present. To be honest this was the only thing that didn't quite work for me this time as I really didn't think the parts from the past were that important to the future. For me it would have worked better just keeping it to the present only, other than that this is yet another great book in the series.
Cobwebs In The Dark is an enjoyable read that easily engages with the reader. It is quite a gentle story that picks up pace towards the end and has the reader totally hooked. Very glad to see there is yet more to come from this series.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Cobwebs in the Dark is the third in Rachael Richey’s ‘Rock-Lit‘ Night Hawk series. The series focusses on the hard fought relationship of Abi and her husband Gideon, who just happens to be an international rock star. His band Nighthawk are reforming and going on tour. They plan on putting the scary events of Rhythm of Deceit (the second in the Nighthawk series) behind them and head to New Zealand to kick off the tour. It should be just what they need, except Abi has stuffed some major insecurities about being the partner of a good looking international rock star into her luggage.
Running parrallel to this story is a thread continued from Rhythm of Deceit about a secret found unearthed amongst the pages of a long forgotten diary in Abi’s parents attic. This story is told from the perspective of Natasha, the young teenage daughter of Abi and Gideon. Natasha is developing a narrative of her own in this book, and begins to open up and reveal the scars from her time in foster care when she was younger. The family may be getting away from one problem, but unwittingly heading straight into another dangerous situation.
It’s been a while since I read Storm Rising and Rhythm of Deceit and it was a pleasant surprise to instantly reconnect with the characters who all have the individual and memorable voices, although the suspense and plot I felt wasn’t quite as dramatic this time around. I welcomed the return of evil Simon, but I felt he had lost his edge a bit and the plot felt a little watered down. However Cobwebs In The Dark still had me reading at a fair pace to see how it all comes to a head. Maybe this was part of the plan with Richey’s writing; to have certain characters resigning themselves to the life ahead of them and who are visibly losing their edge, their looks, and their money.
Looking forward to reading the fourth in the series The Girl in the Painting and rounding out this rock family saga. You can easily read this book as a stand-alone as key plot points are summarised in the book, but it’s worth downloading the whole series to read on holiday, or on the daily commute to get the whole suspenseful story!
Gideon has reformed his band NightHawk and is off to tour the world. First stop, New Zealand, where Gideon, Abi, Natasha and little Oliver are staying with his sister, who lives out there.
For Gideon and Abi its time to relax and spend some quality time with his family, and finally put the past behind them. For Natasha its a chance to carry out a dream that she has, after a shock discovery in book Two, with a little bit of deception along the way.
But will everything run smoothly this time, I mean surly psychotic Simon won’t rear his ugly head again?, especially when he is wanted by the police.
When I was first asked last year, by Rachael if I would like to read and review ‘Storm Rising’ (NightHawk Book One), her début novel, I had no idea how much I would fall in love with this series.
When it came to, ‘Rhythm of Deceit’ (NightHawk Book Two), I must of asked Rachael numerous of times when her publication date was going to be. I was just a little eager to read it!
However this time Rachael beat me to it, contacting me first asking if I would like to read Book Three. After careful consideration, around 2 seconds, I almost bit her hand off. Yes please. I needed my Abi and Gideon fix.
What I love about Rachael’s writing style is how the book flows naturally and progressively, and that her characters are true to life. There are no airs and graces about them, they are everyday people that you can fully connect with. With beautiful characters comes a beautiful book.
The characters all have a strong family bond and they stand shoulder to shoulder in the hour of need. Which in Abi and Gideon’s lives is quite often, especially whenever Simon is about.
Taking us back in time at numerous stages throughout the story, we not only get to uncover more of Abi’s past, but this time Natasha’s too.
It was shocking to see how Gideon and Abi could of been reunited many years ago, but through a sequence of unfortunate events, they came so close but never actually face to face. I agree with Abi’s train of thought though, in that they wouldn’t of been the couple they are now without the battles they have had to face.
Natasha stood out in her own light in this book. She has grown into a wonderful, yet stubborn and extremely determined young woman who, when she gets an idea in her head just can’t let it go, no matter what it takes to fulfil that idea.
Delving into Natasha’s past it was shocking to hear how badly this young girl had been treated by her foster families’ children and how those events still haunt her.
The story wouldn’t be complete without psychotic Simon making an appearance. He still blames Abi and Natasha for Gideon no longer having anything to do with him, and has a plan to get back in their good books, a plan that was flawed from the start, though it did cause extreme distress for the couple in more than one way.
The only thing I can say about Simon’s character is that I would love to see him be a little ‘darker’ in his actions.
An exciting, suspenseful book that once again consumed me within its pages and never let me down. Now Mrs Richey, lets talk about Book Four!!
