This book was a bit harder to review because it got stuck a time or two and I felt she was cursed with temporary stupidity to get the plot moved along. Thing is though, the story was addicting and kept me glued to the pages, I would hit one of these "She ain't that stupid" moments and then just move on with the story but it was distracting.
We have started searching out The Circle in earnest and she has at least one of them in her sights but things get complicated and Tucker seems to be a real enigma and I hope he does not get so evil we can't like him just a bit.
Bottom line: Great story, good plot, some stumbles in keeping Gin consistent, really good ending and we get to know a bit more about the night her family died. Hang on folks, this ride is not over.
One of Ashland’s mob bosses calls in the favour that Gin owes her, and things quickly spiral out of control as they go from sketchy to disastrous. The clues keep piling up, but even with Blanco’s entire crew on deck, it took some doing to get to the heart of it all, and the hunter winds up the hunted. I guessed the antagonist pretty easily however, there were so many other unknowns to keep me busy that it didn’t matter.
One of the things that I enjoy the most about these novels is how the author keeps making links to the past while still developing new tangents. Hugh’s been around for several volumes now, but we learn that he and Gin have met before. Estep also takes us back to that awful day when Blanco lost everything, and we discover an interesting morsel about her mom that has the potential to be a game changer.
All the characters get their turn under the guillotine, and this time around it was the Spider’s number that got called. Yes, she finds herself in more life-or-death situations that all the secondaries combined however, in this particular instance the outlook was worse than usual. After a bit of clever maneuvering with her ice & stone magic as well as her knives, we have the name of the Circle’s leader… or do we?
SNARED was as good as book #16’s get!
This review is hard for me to write because for the first time I found it very hard to get into a book from this series, and it was a bit of a chore to finish. I think this was more of a mindset thing with me. But then I am not sure if it is all my fault. A series needs to stay fresh and keep things new and interesting to keep me hooked. I have lost interest with many long-running book series. The same goes with TV shows. If it is just the same formula plot reproduced with a slight twist over and over I am beyond bored and ready to move one. Unfortunately, this is how I felt with most of Snared. The plot was very predictable and even the little twist at the end wasn’t much of a twist.
I am not sure if I am going to continue this series after this book. I may give it one more shot. The plots are becoming incredibly tedious, and this series needs a boost of some originality. Gin stumbling around not being able to figure out what is so clear to the reader becomes tiresome. Her hunting a serial Killer was new, but it really was the same, she is pitted against Ashland newest big bad. It’s up to her to figure it out before all is lost. She winds up going head to head with big bad and if you have read any other of these books you can guess the ending. Because they are all the same.
I am giving Snared Two Boundless Stars, I didn’t hate it but it could have been so much better. I am on the fence If I will give this series another shot. This may be the nail in the coffin for me.
