Alex and Rianna have opened a PI agency, Tongues for the Dead, and their first case involves an apparent suicide. Alex is trying to prove that it was murder and to find the person or entity responsible. I liked the mystery aspect and I thought the action flowed pretty well. I also enjoyed seeing all of Alex's friends come together to help her defeat the villain.
On the fae side of things, Alex still hasn't picked a court or identified herself as independent. The raids are still happening weekly and they are ticking Caleb off. I wish Alex would take the decision a little more seriously and actually do some research into the different courts and what it really means to be an independent. She just pushes it to the side and that isn't doing her or her friends any favors. She does learn some mysterious facts about her family's fae heritage from her father but nothing concrete. He loves to drop a little mind bomb here and there but not fill in the details. Falin is also caught up in the fae mess. He still can't have anything to do with Alex and, even though I know it is the Queen's orders, it really made me dislike him in this installment.
The Death plot line was very, very interesting. I love learning about the soul collectors and we got a huge block of info towards the end. Death is a great character and I find myself liking him more and more with each book. Circumstances give him and Alex a chance to explore their feelings more and I think it is obvious how much her loves her. Even though I loved the time they spent together in this book, the ending was disappointing. Their (forbidden) relationship ended up back in the same place as the previous books.
I have to say that I am getting a little tired of this love triangle but, from the ending of the book, I don't think it will be decided any time soon. I am firmly on Team Death now, but it seems like the set up for the next book is faery time.
I think she does need a love interest to make the books more enjoyable, but the flip flopping just ticks me off. Alex pines away about having Death in her life since the age of five, and misses him badly for the first part of the book. Death loves her, has told her so, would give up his soul for her, and still she feels for Falin. Falin, tells her he loves her, but not to trust a thing he says. To me, that would include that he said he loves her. Alex can't seem to make her mind up about anything, as in what Faerie Court to become part of, and why would the Winter Court even be a possibility, with the Queen hating her so. As for the men, she made a bargain so Death could keep his soul, and things would have to go back to him fading in and out of her life, which I understand.
But, the ending with bringing Falin back in, as a set up for the next book, just kinda ticked me off. I don't care for this triangle lasting so long, I wish she would take her pick, and build from there. Of course, with the way things stand, the only way someone doesn't get hurt, is for Falin to actually be the bad guy. So, I guess time will tell. At any rate, this series started out reminding me of the early Anita Blake, and if it keeps on this track will probably end up shoving me away, as Anita did.
OMG, such a good book! The problem...there's no set release date for Book #4....NO!!!!!
In this book, things are transitioning pretty quickly for Alex. She's dealing with the changes to her life that being Fae have wrought...and NONE of them are easy. She and Rhianna have opened an actual investigations office. Falin has been ordered by the Winter Queen to have no contact with her. Death is in pretty much the same circumstance...staying as far away as possible.
But there are a string of bizarre suicides happening that make no sense. They also bring Briar, a new character, onto the scene. At first, I couldn't stand her, but the more she was there, the more I liked her. Briar lives in her own little reality that's pretty overzealous and tends to drive Alex crazy. She's armed to the teeth with various magical potions and she's not afraid to use them.
We found out new information about Alex's parentage and that side of the story line is becoming more and more intriguing.
I really just love this series. Even though the guys aren't supposed to be interacting with Alex in this book, both of their story lines and their relationship with Alex ramped up in this book...OMG, LOVE!! The last 10% of the book was nothing short of amazing. Everything zoomed out of control so quickly, it left me gasping for breath and when all the chips fell, I couldn't believe where the book ended up.
Please, please, PLEASE...Kalayna Price, please write faster. I can't wait to read/listen to book #4 in this series.
BTW, the narrator in this series...FABULOUS!!! She does GREAT voices and inflections!
