Once again, I didn’t get as much read this week as I had originally planned on. I am doing a re-read of Ceremony in Death from J.D. Robb for the character guide, which is always great, and it made me notice how much things have changed. While Ceremony is the 5th book of the series, I am also doing a “first-time read” of Seduction in Death, which is something like book 13. What is really standing out from reading them at the same time is how much Eve and Roarke’s relationship has evolved. Eve especially is much less wary and much more accepting of the realness of Roarke’s feelings, and I can image that that only continues as the books go on (and on. And on). It is so nice to have a consistently good series to look forward to, and with 30+ more books to go, I won’t run out of reading material for the foreseeable future.
For some weird reason, I wasn’t that excited to get my hands on Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost. I was looking forward to it in a general way, but not in the whole “countdown the minutes” fangirlyness I can sometimes pull. But weirdly enough, when I got my copy in the mail, I couldn’t wait to dive in. I read almost all of it in one overnight stretch, and it turns out I really enjoyed it. Details from the previous books came back to me pretty quickly, and there was lots of Ian to keep me happy (so looking forward to him and Veritas in the Night Rebel books). I might be wrong, but did anyone else get a whole Maximus and Gretchen vibe? Not sure how I feel about that, since Gretchen annoys me a bit. She always gave me a Justine-lite feeling, which isn’t a compliment.
What did you pick up this week? Any great reads to share? What did you think of the Night Prince wrap up?
