The other leg of the romantic triangle, however, felt arbitrary. Being around the police detective seemed to turn the main character into a teenage girl periodically, which was greatly at odds with her character in the rest of the book. And I felt that the detective was a little too accepting of the weirdness he had been thrust into, and way too quickly. The final conflict felt kind of rushed though wasn't too bad. Also, there were some characters that probably should have had more screen time, but hopefully they'll show up in future novels. My only other issue was the constant switching of perspectives. I've tried to get over this major pet peeve I have against switching the story-telling point of view, but it is especially irritating when a book is written in 1st person and then switches to someone else's 1st person or pulls out to an eagle-eye 3rd person view before snapping back to the main character.Read more ›
Scarlett is a null - which means that any magic creature that comes within a certain distance of her, is nullified and becomes human. It also means she is a good crime scene cleaner because she can defuse the paranormal forces around her and leave the humans none the wiser.
Scarlett has a problem though. She works for the most powerful vampire in Los Angeles and when she doesn't make it to a job quickly enough; the cops get there before she has a chance to clean up a very grisly murder. The problem doesn't end there though. A werewolf shows up on a scene too and the first detective on the scene sees him go from wolf to human when he enters Scarlett's sphere of influence. When she manages to escape from the detective, she leaves behind something he can track back to her on accident. Now she needs to figure out how to keep a human from finding out too much about her world (and getting killed), and figure out who and what killed three vampires in the middle of a park.
This book was an awesome read for me. I've already said I don't like love triangles but I found so much other great things that I can give that a pass. The quick pace and fun characters really made this book for me. I enjoyed the first page to the last page and couldn't put this book down.Read more ›
Here is my opinion on different parts of the book.
Plot: This is an intricate and complex plot. It kept me guessing until the very end. Expect to be surprised. It even set up the next book in the series in the context of everything that happened in Dead Spots.
World building: I really liked how the author handled building this world. Information arrived just when you needed it and in a way that fit into the plot. I never felt like anything was just dropped in. Things were revealed in ways that fit and were a part of the story. This is a paranormal world and it was explained in a logical and believable manner.
Back-story: There had to be a lot of back-story included in the world building. There was just enough to allow me to know the what and why of things. Again it was a part of the story and did not intrude on story flow.
Characters: There were really three main characters; Scarlett, Jesse and Eli. Scarlett is the main character. She is very well-drawn and comes from a difficult back ground, is likeable, and seems to be drifting through life. Eli is just loveable. He cares for Scarlett even though she thinks he is just using her. Jesse on the other hand is the very clean all American type. There is a slight triangle here. There are a number of important side characters. Each had just the right amount of development to fit in the story.
Writing: I was really impressed with the writing. Everything was laid out in a logical manner.Read more ›
