A fun read. An entertaining narrative, some romance, zombies, friends and magic. If you read book 1, this was close to the same level as that for me. Actually, maybe better because in book 1 I kept feeling exasperated at how impulsive Garnet would act over a man. Here were less cases of me saying "Garnet don't be an impulsive idiot" as I read this. Also some relationship developments which made the series move forward nicely for me. I liked the secondary characters in this, especially Garnet's friends. They weren't cliched, they seemed real - not always doing the right thing and always being there when the main character needed them, but still family none-the-less. Garnet does summarize some of what happened in the first book, but I would recommend reading this series in order.
Started to read this one but was a little lost - I think you would need to read the first one first. She makes enough references to what had happened before that it makes it a little confusing. (Also the author either confuses/swaps the names of the two boyfriend characters at one point, or I REALLY need to read the first one first...) So I will wait and try again after I read the first one. Cute though, and I think it will be worth waiting/holding to start reading again. I'll review again when done. ;)
The second book in this delightful series leaves you banging your head against the wall because Garnet can't make up her mind which sexy vampire she wants. We all know that which guy is the right one for her but as Garnet says herself there is just something about the bad guys. In this book Garnet's past catches up with her and yet again we find her making rash choices and battling the demon goddess Lilith. By the end of the book your ready to read the next in the series, which I hope is really soon. I for one loved the series so far and Tate Hallaway has really outdone herself on these two books.
Book #2 in the Garnet Lacey vampire series. Not as good as the first, but was still a good read. Just wasn't a real page turner. I will still read the next one, just won't buy it new, Ill wait to get it on PBS.
I enjoyed this book. Just as good as the first. Will continue to read the series.
Really enjoyed the first book. So I bought this one. They were both good.
This is the second book in the series (Tall, Dark and Dead was the first) and Garnet is trying her best to develop her relationship with Sebastian Von Traum. But the others in her life like her vampire, ex-boyfriend, Daniel Parrish, and an FBI investigator looking for the killer of the Vatican agents back in Minneapolis are causing problems.
And, then there are the zombies that keep popping up around Madison.
Oh, yeah, and she still needs to keep the Goddess Lilith suppressed.
Once again, another fun and light read. Well written and entertaining.
I look forward to the next book in the series.
I really wanted to like this series. I even went and bought the third book but it was hard for me to get through the first book and I'm finding it just as hard to get through the second. Maybe it's a book you have to read when you are by yourself, I don't know. But didn't enjoy as much as I wanted to.
I had read this book once before and loved it. The second time was no different! Garnet is a feisty, funny and full of action. I read the book in one day, could not put it down. Garnet Lacey is Sookie Stackhouse with a whole lot more magic on her side! I cannot wait to read the third book in the series.
