he Hypnotist was a bit different from the first two novels in this series, in that the reincarnation story line wasnt nearly as important as it was in the other novels. As a result, I liked this one quite a bit more, and it was much easier for me to get through it. Additionally, our main character, Lucian Glass, was also in the last novel, and I enjoyed the continuity that his story brought.
Our ever present villain, Malachai Samuels, was far more tolerable to me this go around as well, which definitely helped the story move along for me. Lucian is a character that was pitted against Malachai in The Memorist and this novel, and that was much more fun to read about. In the previous novels, our main characters were working with Malachai, and it bothered me a ton cuz I havent trusted that guy from the start!
