After getting pulled through a mirror into a hellish dimension, Jo is saved by Cadegan and the two quickly form a bond. The one thing about Sherrilyn's novels is her characters are always victims of instalove (and if it's not instant, it doesn't take long). However, Sherrilyn writes her characters in such a way that I'm totally fine with it. Except with these two. I didn't feel the chemistry between Jo and Cadegan that I normally feel between her characters. It didn't feel real between these two, which caused me to have a bit of trouble getting into "We have to save him from this hell dimension" mentality. I mean, I didn't want Cadegan to stay in the hell dimension, but I didn't fully believe Jo's "he's my soul mate and we're saving him or else" perspective.
Romance aside, Son of No One is . . . ugh, it's just okay. There isn't a whole lot of "OMG THE WORLD IS GOING TO END AND WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE," but there isn't a lot of drama either. I wasn't flipping the pages because my heart couldn't take what was happening and the things that were happening we're just . . . happening. Everything was too easy.
Sherrilyn writing is, as always, spot on and the love scenes hot and steamy - girl does not hold back - but Son of No One feels like it's lacking. The story is fast paced, so it didn't take me long to get through it, and I always love when favorite characters come back for cameos.
Overall, I didn't hate Son of No One, but it certainly wasn't my favorite of Sherrilyn's novels. This in no way turns me off from her or this amazingly intricate (and usually mind-blowing) series, but it is kind of a bummer.
First, the plot is really poorly developed. Everything is rushed to the point of absurdity. There's also very little detail given to explain the situations the characters find themselves in. It's like you're supposed to just assume that everything makes sense without being shown the reasons why it should.
You're introduced to a multitude of other characters from other books without any reminder of who they are and what their deal is. Like I said earlier, I've read all of the books, but remembering those details is impossible unless you're reading the books back-to-back. I still don't know the significance of many of the characters as they are written in under the assumption that the reader knows everything already -- which I didn't.
The ending is also a disappointment. I finished a chapter, turned the page, and saw the heading "Epilogue" and couldn't believe it. I was sure I'd received a copy with missing chapters. There were so many loose ends that I thought would be tied up that were just left hanging. I guess they were meant as teasers for future releases, but with such a thin storyline to begin with, those stories should have been part of this book.
All in all, I would recommend skipping this Dark Hunter novel. It made very little sense, and was most definitely not the roller-coaster thrill ride I've come to expect from this author.
Then she gives us MORE names of pantheons and their gods/goddesses. I can't track anymore. Then there's stuff going on that is from Fang's book! Hello, that was forever ago..... And then the sex. She used to be good at it. This was almost like she didn't want to explore the sex and tried to get out of it QUICKLY. I'm still trying to figure out how you have sex with a woman's hips?!
But the thing that pissed me off the most, was the grammar. Got it. Cade is OLD, but she would use the same speech for Cade and Jo. Don't know about you, but me head what was shaking. (that was an example of the modern day woman talking) Obviously, the editor didn't catch it or just rubber stamped it! My last complaint is that at $12.99 for an Ebook, it shouldn't stop at 83%!!!!! I think for the next book, I'll go to the library and save myself the money.
