"What is this place?"
"Think of it as a waiting room of sorts."
"A waiting room for what?"
"For what's next. After you humans die, you have to be processed."
"You make it sound like the DMV," I snorted.
"Gods no. Nothing that horrible."
Cynthia St. Aubin has done a spot-on job ratcheting up the stakes and tension over the length of the series. Mathilda's confusion and fears about her own paranormal abilities and what they mean for her sanity and destiny are playing out very well. The continuing story arc constantly feeds the reader just a bit more information unwinding the mysteries that surround Dr. Schmidt without giving away too much. Just when you feel like you have a handle on what's going to happen, you get t-boned by a semi-truck full of WTF.
The plot zips by, and is full of goodies for the reader. Byron the Vampire's elegant neuroses are delightful, but still carry an edge of danger. Charon the Ferryman is an utter treat to read. His ennui and secret dreams had me giggling. The scenes with Crixus and Mathilda are sharply written. They are visceral and jagged, but still carry a subtle undercurrent of vulnerability and deeper emotion. Liam's moments with Mathilda are in a very stark contrast to the ones with Crixus, but carry no less weight. I love this triangle. Cynthia St. Aubin has made it a completely plausible scenario without compromising the strength or integrity of her heroine.
There are some BIG surprises here that I didn't see coming. Books rarely do that to me anymore, so as a veteran reader, this book was a special treat.
We're nearing the end of Mathilda's adventures. I'm sad to see her go, but I can't wait for the next book!
I first fell in love with Dr. Schmidt because of the humorous way she got dumped into the supernatural world and the comedy of errors that seemed to follow her around as she learned to navigate her new reality. But as the series progresses, it is becoming less and less about the absurd circumstances and hilarity that ensues. Although there are still reasons to laugh, it is obvious that Matilda's life is changing, and not all of those changes can be laughed off.
Now, some parts of the book are funny- the vampire suffering from hematophobia, the Bacchanal-esque birthday party at Rolly's... these are guaranteed to get at least a chuckle- but there is a more serious side to Matilda's life- and that is what appears to be the main focus of this installment. Her feelings for Crixus and the gaping hole inside that she feels when she doesn't hear from him... the parameters of her relationship with Liam and the questions about how she feels for him... her mother, their relationship (or lack thereof), the insanity that she fears will doom her to a similar fate... these are all pretty heavy topics. Throw in her doubts concerning her professional future and you have a story that could very well prompt our favorite psychologist to seek out the guidance of a mental health professional- that is if she could find one that would believe her.
I will say that I continue to be floored by the depth of these stories. It still boggles my mind that so much can be adequately addressed in the mere 89 pages that Amazon claims this story has. I don't know if it is the fast-paced sequence of events or the rich detail that makes it seem so much longer; I feel like lifetimes passed in the brief hours it took me to read this one. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Matilda in this series is dealing with a vampire that has a very interesting problem, but one I cannot give away here. There is also a werewolf with a major issue that turns even the docs face red.
Old Liam Whatshisface is back to watch over Matilda, how good of a job can he do this time?
And Crixus is MIA, and apparently stealing all her patients and sending them to see some one else.
Once Matilda gets to the bottom of things will she like all the answers that she has been given and can she faces choices she must make to help others?
You have to read the book, I'll never tell. I hear if you tell that a leprechaun pees on your pillow, and I rather like my pillows just the way they are.!
Great job Cynthia! I cannot wait for he next one!
