To me the books read like a juvenile series with adult language/situations and some gore. While I don't read much juvenile fiction what I have read have much the same feeling as these books mostly have. I'm not really sure how to explain it other than that if the mature language and themes were toned down then the books would be right at home in the teen reading section of the book store. I'm not saying this is necessarily bad but it's not what I'm looking for in my urban fantasy. While I can do without cursing and erotica the feel and themes do need to be a little meatier than what Ms King has provided here.
My 3 stars is reluctant as I think the books are overall well done. My review is intended to reflect my confusion as to who target audience is and my desire for a weightier tone. I actually recommend readers try the series but I shan't be continuing.
NOTE: Rather than 'juvenile' I should have put 'young adult'. My apologies. Also to clarify my statement about a reluctant 3 star review: if the books had been either clearly young adult or adult I would have rated them at 4 stars.
After witnessing something terrifying, she disappears from the hospital after calling her brother for help. Jason isn't home when the call comes in so a couple days have passed before he starts looking for her. Events lead Jason & Dr. Stone together, though they have never met. Jason knows nothing of the magical world but he's seen some very strange things during his search for Verity. He & Dr. Stone join forces and the story gets more involved with evil at every step. Great story! And more to come in book 3. Can't wait!
Good action, not a lot of “Let's stand around and talk about the problem for ten or twelve pages, while the bad guys wait for us to make up our minds,” excessive dialog there to add to the word count. I look forward to number 3.
My only hesitation in giving it five stars is that, if the next one is even better (as I suspect it may be) I won't have anywhere to go with the rating.
