"Kiss of Death" is a nice departure from being in Morganville, TX the entire book. Poor Eve was so excited to leave Morganville for the first time that I felt kinda sorry for her. Claire & Shane's relationship becomes more serious, while Eve & Michael continue to struggle with his life as a vampire. Oliver figures heavily into this book, which I enjoyed. All in all, another great visit with Claire & friends. I'll be waiting impatiently for the next book.
The beginning is slower then I expected, but that makes sense given the high octane ride that was Bishop, and the post-high crash that was Ada. I wouldn't say things were exactly perfect for the Glass House Gang, but their only concern was Morley. Michael was getting a deal, they were all getting out of Morganville for a little while (even if Oliver had to tag along, for obvious reasons) and they were almost guaranteed a vampire free weekend...not including Michael or Oliver of course. What could go wrong?
Oh practically everything. Oliver has his own agenda, from Amelie, that lands them group in Boondocks, Texas. They all decide to hit up the local truck stop and wind up in a whole heap of trouble that just keeps escalating from there on out. Once the action begins it doesn't really slow down. However the trademark wit and devilry is still very much in attendance. I laughed everytime one of them would, almost as a positive mantra, chant "We've been in worst situations". The amount of times Claire has to think to herself that Bishop was a worst situation is sad. Coupled with the fact she begins missing crazy Myrnin after a while. Though I missed Myrnin. There wasn't enough of him in this book.Read more ›
Not that the story isn't good. So far, it's ok. BUT.....Ms. Caine made a HUGE mistake with a character name. I cannot believe an editor didn't catch this, but if different editors were used on the different books it might not have been discovered.
That's why you ALWAYS use the same editor on an entire series so mistakes like this cannot happen. This is supposed to be a professionally published book but it has been thrown out of that category now. Eh, if the same editor WAS used, shame on you.
In a previous book, Eve's brother Jason was told by his "friend" Dean to hold Eve down so he could drain her blood.
This was of course after Dean walked her through an alley and pretended to be her friend before he smacked her over the head and carried her away.
In the Kiss Of Death, the author now calls this character "DAN" instead of Dean. The story keeps referring back to when "DAN" abducted her and the rest of the bad (nearly drain all your blood) nightmare. Bad enough the author didn't seem to have notes on the character names to refer back to and double bad the editor didn't catch this as well.
Excerpt from Carpe Corpus:
". . . can't believe you brought her here," one said - she knew the voice, but she couldn't place it; the headache was too huge to think around. "Are you mental? That's not just anybody. She's going to be missed, Dean!"
"That's the point." Dean. That was Dean's voice. "I want them to miss her. I want them to look all over. They won't find her until I want them to. Come on, Jason. Man up, already."
"Dude, I knew you were crazy. I didn't know you were stupid, too.Read more ›
