"No Humans Involved" is the turn for Jamie Vegas, our favorite celebrity Necro, to narrate. She was actually a cool choice for a first person speaker because it made the book really different to have a heroine who can't do anything to protect themselves physically. No super strength or wolf-shape like Elena, no spells like Paige or Eve, and definitely no Angel sword. Sometimes this is annoying because Jamie spends a while whining about always having to be rescued, but it a way it's more relatable, because hey, what reader could take on a werewolf or demon and expect to come out alive? Jamie is more human than the others. And she's definitely the funniest narrator yet.
But she's still way not normal. This book takes place on a TV shoot to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe, involving Jamie and two television spiritualists (no necro power for them.) At first Jamie thinks this will be a great way to get her own TV show, and Jeremy, the werewolf pack Alpha agreed to come out to LA from New York to visit, raising her hopes for a romantic relationship with him (no, in this book, in the beginning, they are not dating.Read more ›
My one peeve is the hardcover price, but it's worth spending more money on something so entertaining and well written. If you prefer waiting for the paperback, then that is fine, but read this! You will love Jaime Vegas!
The plot has already been summarized well by others, so I won't attempt to do so again here. Suffice to say that if you enjoy supernatural suspense with some romance mixed in, you'll like this novel. Also, unlike some series, I think you can read the Women of the Underworld books out of order or as stand alones although, of course, certain moments will resonate better if you have read the other books.
What I Enjoyed: Kelley Armstrong is a talented writer and her prose always flows well. In this book, the writing is particularly strong when Jamie grapples with the pratfalls of being a necromancer (she can't help every ghost and all the chatter from the dead may ultimately contribute to her losing her sanity). I also liked the humor in the scenes where Jamie gets the better of the Hollywood types she works with on her television special.
I've always liked Jeremy and I very much enjoyed the way he and Jamie initially dealt with the complexities of any potentional romantic relationship between them. That said, I thought more time could have been spent on their romance.Read more ›
The book opens with Jaime agreeing to participate in a television reality show with two other up-and-coming celebrity spiritualists. She's not thrilled about it, but she sees the program for what it is: an opportunity to land her own series. It all seems easy enough, until Jaime becomes aware of something more troubling than the run of the mill spectral encounters she's used to. Lurking around in the backyard of the house where the show is set, something dark and frightening is vying for Jaime's attention. With questions piling up and answers making themselves scarce, Jaime turns to friends for help in solving this most unusual of mysteries. With werewolf Jeremy Danvers at her side, Jamie travels from L.A, to Chicago, to Portland and back all in an effort to make sense of a ghostly puzzle. Along the way, she bargains with a dark witch, trades quips with a demon, and enlists the protection of an unlikely angel. But she'll need more than supernatural allies help her understand what is slowly beginning to look like a very 'human' crime.
Jaime's come a long way since her debut in Armstrong's 'Industrial Magic', and her voice in this new book is sassy, sexy and fun. Though she's got a few hang-ups to overcome, she's a definite contender when it comes to taking care of business. This book sees Jaime coming to terms with her checkered past and the darker side of her supernatural abilities. Readers will also be delighted by Jeremy's strong presence in 'No Humans Involved'.Read more ›
