The over all story is pretty good this time though not quite as good as the last time. He can match Jace in ths sarcasm when the moment calls for it. What I can say is Is he really dead? May 12, Karen rated it did not like it.
Back from the Undead (The Bloodhound Files, #5) by D.D. Barant
She succeeds and, in an interesting twist Wow I do feel slightly bad about Tanaka view spoiler [that he had himself killed in the name of honor he owed Jace hide spoiler ] but at the same time, I never develop some sort of sympathy for him — unlike the one I feel for Dr. Maybe her novelty is wearing off. The bad news is that her big advantage — her ability to splatter other supernaturals with her gun — is going away, leaving her largely defenseless.
Her profiling skill largely compensated the declining advantage of her gun in BFTU.
Though if what Stoker says is true, Jace will need to stop the trafficking ring and fromm Stoker. The previous book was better as a mystery but lacked an advancement toward the overall story arch. There still is a good rapport between Jace and Charlie. Made from the remains of a T-Rex, he is one tough dude!
I chuckled many times and it wasn’t just because of the witty dialogue but also of the WTF scenes themselves. Surprisingly, I wasn’t bothered by these changes. Charlie is still my favorite character.
Jace is insecure about the matter, and not necessarily because Cassius is her boss, or the fact that she yet refer to him by his first name David, or that she’s a human and he’s a vampire.
It’s hard to believe since Stoker is a villain. This series is truly unique and stays so.
Back from the Undead (Bloodhound Files, book 5) by D D Barant
This was a good one and not way out there with alternate realities and time shifts like the 2nd and 3rd. Much like with my last read, I have totally forgotten nearly everything that has happened previously in this series.
Apr 03, Erin ffrom it it was amazing. Loved the completely different world there and references to places I have personally been. I really love the wacky humor of alternate Vancouver as the major center for narcotics trade and multicultural melting pot.
Who hasn’t wanted to pull the rug out from under a power hungry bureaucrat? If you’re keeping score, this means that all of the Asians are evil and the only one who isn’t dies. But I guess success lies in the balance of all these elements. And her witty lines aren’t as witty. Damn, I was really hoping there’d be more Scotch. Well for starters Aristotle is in Vancouver. Barant’s The Bloohound Files. Our beloved Jace has finally connected sexually with David Cassius, and it rocks her world and his.
Otherwise the action scenes were good, some plot points tied up and new ones emerge. The only problem is, that the sorcerer who did the spell that brought her to this world is in cahoots with Stoker and just plain has a plan of hndead own.
Is this a trap?
I guess it’s because Cassius is MIA? At the end I just got a head ache. At present, most Urban Fantasies relegate themselves to Western mythology.
Back from the Undead
Thropirelem is an alternate universe in which vampires, Golems, and barranh exist in greater numbers than humans and have in fact take over the earth. The World-Building I was happy at how the series went back to Oriental mythology for bxck world-building. This is not a book one should read if you have not already read the preceding four books. Just another day in the field for Jace and her merry band of miscreants. Aristotle still wants to change the world, but he has come to the conclusion that he is going about it all wrong.
Stopping child trafficking will see Jace cross the border where her badge doesn’t hold as much power she’s used to and if that were not enough, she’s running out of ammunition for her gun, not that a gun will necessarily help her against the ancient God whose attention sh When Stoker, an old adversary of Jace’s, contacts the NSA seeking help to break up a child trafficking ring, Jace isn’t sure she should leap to the bait.
I was sorely disappointed with so little Cassius in this book. He’s the Yazuka lord of a vampire who promised to kill Jace in book 2. Jace is going to have to work with Stoker this time around in order to uncover all the unsavory doings of the unknown villain and get the children back to their normal life. Problem with working with Intelligence operatives, they usually cant tell you what they are up to.
