I've just realized that it's almost never the main couple that does this (with the exception of two- Z and Bella and Qhuinn and Blay)- but the supporting characters. In many cases the true meat of the story isn't with the two "main" characters, but with the supporting ones. I can't think of another author who does this so successfully. Ward does it and the results are fascinating. Her character-building skillz are unrivaled.
I liked Cait and Duke. They were interesting and I liked their real world problems and hang-ups.
Devina- The devil whose humanish quirks make her a somewhat sympathetic character at times (until you remember all the reasons we have to hate her).
All Ward's books have dark undertones, but this one was especially stygian. Jim, Adrian, Nigel, Colin- the story was full of overwhelming rawness. It was, at times, a viscerally painful read.
Very well done.
This one took me a while to read…. and not just because it’s over 550 pages. I have to admit it took me a while to get into. But, once I did, there was no putting it down.
J.R. Ward’s angels are not your typical white winged, reverent, harp playing variety. At least not the fallen ones. Especially not Jim. To say that Jim was a reluctant savior was putting it mildly. He was in this war because he had no choice. Even so, he took the game seriously up until this point. In Possession, he let it all slide because of the one soul he felt responsible for losing. That one act changed everything.
I’d love to tell you what the turning point was for me, but I can’t. That would give too much away. Just know that at about half-way through you need to start paying attention. I totally didn’t see it coming, so wait for it. There wasn’t a whole lot of interaction between the soul that needed to be saved in Possession and the fallen angels. That’s partially because Jim just wasn’t focused. Readers did get to spend a lot more quality time with Adrian though and that’s never a bad thing.
The romance was great and I liked Cait and her guy…. sorry, can’t tell you which was my favorite. You’ll just have to read to the end to find out. ;) Things got twisted in a drama filled way for pretty much everyone. There were unexpected losses and there’s more to Sissy than I expected and more to come. Devina was her usual evil, neurotic self and there were some unexpected appearances… and transformations that made things interesting. I also enjoyed the reactions and descriptions of unknowing characters when they interact with some BDB characters that appear from time to time.
The last book in this series is going to be released soon. Immortal has a lot of ground to cover and a lot of loose ends to tie up. I’ll probably wait until the paperback is released to read it. I will pick it up though. Not only do I have to keep my set complete, but I just have to know how this all plays out.
