Two books back, Karen Chance ended Hunt the Moon on the epic cliffhanger of Pritkin being dragged to hell. Nearly the entirety of the next book was spent with Cassie trying to rescue him, only to have the Demon Council send his soul back in time, leaving us hanging again. Guess what happens at the end of this book. Guess if this thread is resolved. Guess whether you’ll be able to walk away satisfied.
It’s not like I didn’t enjoy the book. It would be so much easier if I didn’t. Because I don’t want to give up the stupid carrot, yes, but also because I like Cassie. She is such a great underdog. She is completely underestimated by everyone around her. Yet she is always left standing in the end. I like that she is slowly starting to build a team of her own, that she is relying less on the resources provided for her. Her first acolyte, Rhea, is a great addition. Cassie is not only growing stronger, but she is also recognizing that in herself, which I love.
I’m still interested in the vampires and the senate, and even Mircea. But I am getting downright disturbed at the love scenes between him and Cassie. The last two books have been spent with Cassie’s heart and soul devoted to saving another man and Mircea is there for a about 5% of the story and she is shagging him. I understand there is a Mircea team, but they can’t any happier with this disparity than I am. It feels like Chance is trying to play both sides and it doesn’t work anymore, if it ever did.
I liked seeing Dorina, though again, we’ve been coyly pulling this thread for too long.
Believe it or not, I liked Rosier. I enjoyed his interactions with Cassie. And boy, did I love 24-year-old Pritkin. There are some great scenes. But it’s like taking a scenic drive for 6 hours that ends a mile away from home. The ride is good, but I also want to get somewhere. To be fair, I think Cassie has some good character building. I think her relationship with Rhea and her ties to the other girls she rescued will have an impact moving forward… as will her determination to seize the respect and power she is due. But, despite copious amounts of action and a few bits of sexy time, we just don’t get anywhere.
Do I really want to see what happens in Ride the Storm? Of course I do. The cliffhanger has done its job. But how many times will it keep working? The carrot is getting old.
What the hell? How is a reader to enjoy a story like this?
Honestly I have stopped reading a lot of authors this year because if they don't give a crap about their characters and advancing their storyline why should I care about reading it anymore.
This series more than likely has seen the last of me.
Maybe in the next 10 years Cassie may have developed some kind of assertiveness or growth. But to have been reading this series from 2006 and it is now 2015 and only 3 months have passed in this series something is def wrong.
I had forgotten how much I love this world and the characters in it. Cassie is pretty badass, but she is still kind of stumbling around and trying to figure out her power. Getting to see a side of Pritkin before he became his own version of badass was a nice change of pace, especially since he is one of my favorites.
Cassie grew a bunch in this book and is beginning to find a more solid foundation to move forward in her role as Pythia. It was nice to see her learning not to be everyone else’s tool. She is still being run ragged and bounced from problem to problem with very little breathing room.
My one, sort of negative is that there were a couple of biggie issues that didn’t get resolved in this book. It was really kind of a cliffhanger. In this case, I’m not hugely bothered by that as I love the series and fully intend on reading the next book, but I generally prefer a cleaner ending.
I did cave and go ahead and buy this one, even after reading it at the library because, really, it was kind of a stupid, forgetful thing and obviously I wasn’t thinking straight by night just buying it right away. Won’t happen the next time, though I do hope it doesn’t take as long to get the next book out (supposedly later this year).
