It was like a roller coaster. At some point, I was getting awed by where the book was leading, while at other, I was desperately waiting for the chapters to end. All the good parts went down the hill during the climax. The action scene seemed childish and the suspect was very predictable. I was really hoping for something exciting. A certain actions, scenes, and locations got way repetitive (Kat grabbing her sodas, her activity around the house, pool side, etc.).
It was still a fun and easy read. I enjoyed few characters and their humor.
My only complaint (and its a weak one) is that I felt a little bit like this should be book 2. What happened in Vegas should have been book 1. I know it's part of the mystery not knowing "exactly" what happened in Vegas but in some places, I felt like the reader should have known what happened in Vegas but it was never explained. For me that left a few unanswered questions. It is book one though, so maybe my questions will be answered in the next book. All in all, it was well written and a great book.
The main character is Kat Parker. She recently returned from a trip to Las Vegas and huge gap in her memory. As a result, she vaguely remembers the man she loved and married, and has a new-found skill she doesn't remember inheriting -- she can communicate with the comatose. The supporting cast includes a vampire (that never seems to drink blood), an super strong / super cute detective, and an irritable turtle.
The story is well-written and flows nicely. Yes, it sounds a little crazy, but that's the point. It's intended to be a fun read, not a realistic story. It reminds me of some of the madness from Janet Evanovich's novels, but with a paranormal flare.
The one negative for me was that the main character is a little weaker than I prefer for females. I'm pleased that she became bolder as the story went on, but I'm hoping her stomach isn't turning as much in books going forward.
On the whole, this is an entertaining read that's woven together well.
This story follows the life of Kat Parker, a woman who goes to Vegas one weekend, and while there, finds herself in a yet-to-be-revealed catastrophic situation.
When she comes home, she has to learn to adjust to a new reality with very limited knowledge of what happened. But what we do know is this:
- Kat met a guy and married him, only to have him die soon after.
- She picked up a confused vampire on the way.
- She now has the ability to communicate with people in comas.
Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels will probably really enjoy this book. Kat is a very likeable character, as are most of the people we encounter throughout the story. There is an immediate issue that is resolved in this first instalment, which should provide enough closure for readers – but don’t expect to find out everything just yet!
My one very tiny issue with this story was that we are kept in the dark a lot. I don’t mind not knowing some details in a story, but I get frustrated if I feel the characters are aware of that information and are purposely withholding it. I want to know what Kat knows – even if that’s not very much!
I have already started reading the second book in the series, so I suppose the author’s gamble to make me wait paid off. And it’s just as addictive as the first!
