Characters are consistent with the previous novels, though we get more depth in Tyson's character b/c it's his story. We get to see the differences between him and his brothers. There's growth and development in the characters, but it's really more of a revelation of what's been happening since the first Supernatural Prison novel. This novel picks up 2 months after the end of Broken Compass, and spans perhaps 3 days. With trips to Faerie where time moves differently, it's hard to tell, and they only sleep and eat once. So not a whole lot of character development between beginning of this book and the end.
The plot is characteristic of Jaymin Eve's work. There's a crisis (immediate in this novel) which leads to a "save the world" issue and a lot of action sequences. The Compass brothers even comment on how often they've had to "save the world" recently. There're some crazy magic twists and revelations and then a HEA of sorts. We know there's another novel to follow this, so there will be more drama and action in the next novel.
The "romance" is full-strength from the first page, but the graphic sex scene isn't until the end. so easy to skip it and get to the final few moments of the novel.
The pace is fast, and sometimes the energy/suspense is faster than the narration can handle. What I mean by that is there's some risk of death scene and some crucial aspect or dialogue that I read and immediately need an answer to, but the narration has to give me other details first and i want to skim to get to the answer, thereby missing other important information. Perhaps there's nothing wrong with the narration and I'm just a poor suspense reader, spoiled forever by the instant visual gratification of movies and tv.
Overall a great read! Definitely looking forward to the next novel.
Tyson's story is very creative and heart wrenching. I really like how it still pulls our other characters in. Even though this was written from Grace and Tyson's view point, it still gave us insight into the rest of the 'packs' lives.
Grace is stronger than she was in the dragon marked books. Her story is a hard one, but very well developed. Tyson is the protective loving mate that seems to run strong in the compass boys.
As for how great this series and the spin-off's are, well it is very well developed and the character building and development is amazing. How the author can create these imaginative worlds and show it through writing is an amazing feat. Great job Jaymine Eve.
Jaymin writes these books and they're like my children. I love all these equally and there is no book that is better than the others. They all have their own strengths and weaknesses and I love learning more about them.
Just when you can't think of more, Jaymin does. When you think that you've already read five books about these boys, a sixth one won't be that different, right?
We learn so much more in this book and that's why every time Jaymin comes out with another book, I get excited and giddy.
*sigh* Those Compass men are so drool worthy.
WELL, that's not the case for this sequel/stand alone.
Tyson has always been a favorite of mine - fun loving and always seeming to be carefree I was excited to get to read from his perspective. To counteract that there was Grace who I had always thought of as being gentle and level headed.
This book has everything you expect - there's the pack and Jessa's ever present love of food, but the real star of this book is Tyson and Grace. Grace's trials are heart wrenching and tear inducing. Tyson's struggle to fight for control and what he wants most is heart warming. Their love for each other is awe inspiring. Jaymin delivers like she always does with amazing plot twists and rich beautiful characters and scenes so filled with emotion it doesn't quite seem possible to be able to feel so much and relate so completely with fictional characters.
If I have a complaint about this book it's that (like pretty much every Jaymin book I've ever read) it leaves you desperate for more! I'll definitely be anxiously awaiting Louis's book next year!
