Having already established the world in the previous installment, the attention shifted to the characters which couldn’t have come at a better time because the secondaries were what I’d felt the most unsure of at the end of the last novel. I wouldn’t go so far as to call Nuri and Jonas allies yet, but we do gain some clarity on their cause, and on them as individuals. And, that left me on improved terms with them going into the next volume.
The plot didn’t revolve around the children as much as I’d expected, although some headway was made in that area as well. What’s been going on behind closed doors at the pharmaceutical company run by Sal’s partners was at the forefront however, given that the kids are being experimented on, there were quite a few parallels between the two threads. The events leading up to the resolution were straightforward as far as Urban Fantasy story lines go.
Tig made good use of all her talents as a déchet, but the author zoomed-in on her ability with ghosts which allowed readers to connect with Bear & Cat on a deeper level. These two little specters are adorable! Jonas seems to be ready to acknowledge his attraction to the heroine however, these two still have a long way to go if they want to have some semblance of a romantic relationship. The slow burn is a nice change of pace from this author’s usual M.O.
WINTER HALO was another grand slam by Keri Arthur! ~ 4.5 Stars
This is an action filled book, it is starting to touch on a romance and you are flipping pages to get more of this story and then after a horribly stressful scene and near death you turn the page to see what comes next and it says THE END ........ WTF!!!!!
Bottom Line: Look, I can't wait to get the next (last?) one but I have to say that if I was buying these books I would probably wait until I had all of them before starting since they all end in horrible places for the reader but a place that is almost required so the next book can start in a decent place. 4 Stars and hoping the next one will be 5 Stars assuming it might be the last book.
Tig is still the girl that can do it all. Like seriously she can do EVERYTHING make herself practically invisible, turn into smoke to go through walls, talk to ghosts, go through dimensional portals, combat fight and has some magic sexy mojo happening that makes her able to seduce men and then tease their secrets out while in bed together. So basically on top of everything else she has a magical whoo-hah and then during the sexy times she glimpses the stuff going on in her partners life.
Here is my sorta issue with that. In the first book she is intimate with someone because they had a history and then later she uses her magical whoo-hah when she finds out he isn’t the man she remembers. I apparently was all ‘you go girl, use those mad sex skills’. But now in this book she actively searched someone out to seduce for this purpose while she clearly has feeling for another man. Now I don’t want to be all high horsey on this but I didn’t like it since the guy is a pretty good guy and she is just using him for information. I really ended up feeling bad for him overall. Yes Keri Arthur told me numerous times that cats aren’t monogamous and the girl gets to decide on courting but still I wasn’t in love with this entire situation.
Part of my specific issue is I really want a love story to root for and there is the chance of one happening eventually between Tig and Jonas but you can tell that the author is going to ride the hell out of that sexual tension and so barely anything happens between them. Meanwhile Tig is off having sexy time with some other guy she has no connection to. It totally bugged me.
Then there is the story about the missing kids. They’re kids and I want to care about them but I really don’t. I have no emotional investment. None of their parents are asking questions about them, no one else is the group has a connection to any of them, there isn’t a hunt on for them I just have nothing in the story to make me care about any of them. Even Penny who was saved in the last book is so off page that I don’t even care about her. I think that is my biggest issue. I don’t have an emotional attachment to anyone.
But I plodded through and there was one and only one surprise for me in the entire story. I enjoyed parts of the world from the first book but I really didn’t get a closer look at anything in this one. There are some very interesting things that might be happening with the Rifts but that was just briefly touched on and left incredibly vague for now and it was really the thing I was the most interested in.
I’m not sure if I’ll read the next book in the series at this time since I wasn’t in love with the first book and this one fell flat for me as well.
