While I've been able to find a few gems through Amazon's book borrowing program, most of the available titles in the areas of my interest are formulaic, seriously lacking in proper editing, poor copycats of successful major published works, or excuses for 'authors' to indulge in writing pornography with no character, world, or story building evident.
All that being said I am pleased to take the time to give my hearty recommendation for the Marnie Baranuik Files series. I have read all books so far, (and am eagerly hoping for more), so my review applies to them in entirety.
Vampire literature has run the gamut from truly horrifying to ridiculous, but A. J. Aalto has managed to provide a fresh new perspective on vampire culture and history, along with a world that supports the idea of the 'supernatural' in an easy "suspension of disbelief". Her main characters are well fleshed, highly individualized, exhibiting dichotomies that real people have, (i.e., Marnie's extreme intelligence and education contrasting with her prolifically embellished profanities - or Harry's extreme concern for others vs. his lack of ability to love), and entirely believable in the world she's created. While there are some 'sex' scenes, they are entirely appropriate to the story, and they are not overdone.
This series provide mystery, maudlin, adventure and humor at a great pace. I found myself laughing out loud at Marnie's "colorful metaphors" - so much so that I had to share her brilliant new ways of swearing with my husband, who has now been inspired to read the series.
I stayed up too late many nights reading this series and am very much looking forward to doing so again. If you are a fan of the supernatural genre and are looking for something well written, well edited and highly entertaining - look no further.
Mild terror aside, it’s a great tribute to Aalto’s skill as a story-teller that I was engaged in the book enough that I was spooked. In this installment, we see a different side of Marnie. Faced with her family and back in Canada, she is trying to grow up (a little) and think about others more. Perhaps she will even gain a little (begrudging) courage.
This was a fantastic continuation of the Marnie Baranuik files with plenty laugh out loud moments and adventure.
Warning: Contains violence, sexual content and gave me nightmares about evil grandma ghosts.
Who should read it? Folks looking for a fun continuation to the series!
