In this novel, Cosper has set up a detailed world of demon hunting, family legacies, and a great cast of characters.
To be completely honest I know almost nothing about the world of demons, or much of the supernatural in general that this novel deals with. It's because of that, that I say Cosper was able to in a way teach me the ways of this world effectively through Gabriella's character. Gabriella is a centuries old human with a curse. She's been around for a long time hunting various demons. She knows things. The Van Helsing brothers of this current generation, they know next to nothing compared to her. This teacher student relationship made it easy to learn with the characters.
What I enjoyed about the characters was that they weren't all buddy-buddy as a team. Just because one of them tells the other something it didn't mean that it would be believed. Despite the main conflict of hunting down the devil, Ose, the inner struggles of the group often come into play. This lead to many sections of non-stop reading. There was also a good balance between the back story given for some characters and back story that was withheld.Read more ›
story, it would have been easy to understand Gabby going off the rails and
losing herself in her revenge. However, not only does she handle every adversary with level headedness, she also remains dedicated to the family she promised to protect.
Prescription is a Van Helsing Organization novel, the first in the series. Although vampires do not take center stage, there are other creatures of the night to worry about. Demons, devils, werewolves, and that is not including the extensive hierarchy of the underworld. Gabby is multitasking her butt off trying to keep everyone safe and attain her goals.
The Love and Bother:
Cosper does an amazing job of making me feel for every one of her characters.
The three Van Helsing men, Esais, Adrian, and Tres could easily have been
robotic and one-dimensional. Yet with Cosper's writing, I was instantly drawn to each of them. One aspect I found most compelling is how each brother is dealing with the burden of their own secrets. They may be a family of Supernatural hunting bad-assess, but they don't always trust one another. I liked that dynamic and found it added a layer of understanding to every action.
They would happily die for one another, but telling the truth plagues them all.
There were a few places in the story where I would have liked some further information. The aspect of ghosts immediately comes to mind. However it didn't detract from the story and there are many more books to come in which to expand.Read more ›
I still remember some of these scenes so vividly that I dream of them sometimes. If you had told me I would fall in love with a book about demons, I would have thought you were NUTS. They are pretty much the only supernatural creature I never had interest in before now. But Noree does it SO WELL.
I'm so invested in these characters and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Gabby. Like seriously adore her and could read 1000000 books with her as the main character! All the characters are their own people and the inter-character-relationships were SPOT ON. I've never felt a book was more "real" before.
I also have to comment on the natural writing talent itself. If there's one thing Noree excels in, it's story telling. She really knows how to balance it all and deliver in spades. Character, pacing, plot, action, dialogue, emotion, I could go on and on.
I'm a book lover, yes. But it's not every day I feel the need to passionately RAVE about an author. I'm a fan. Like a fan-girling fan. It's embarrassing, but I don't care. I LOVED this book and I WANT MORE!
