I love the characters in this series and I have enjoyed it all the way through. I did not like the direction things went at the end of the last book, but still had to see how things worked out. This latest installment did take a turn that ventured into the "way out there". It was a page turner through the last half, though, and I'm happy with how it wrapped up.
Amazing. I could not have imagined the ending of this series if I thought for years. Ties up a lot of loose ends with these characters we have come to care so much about. Humor, pathos, trust, imagination and lots of love. Sad to see the end.
I wish I could rate this higher because this is generally a great series. However, I feel there's some confusion with Let it Bleed becoming the final installment, Lust for Life (WVMP Radio, Bk 4). But, DO read the eNovella (free summer 2013) Let it Bleed (WVMP Radio, Bk 3.5) first. Unlike most novellas this one is a crutial part of the story. Okay back to the review...
To put it simply, the story felt rushed and the details inconsistant. I know the author wanted to end the series. I just wish that the plot and characters hadn't been sacrificed in the process.
A FEW HIGHLIGHTS: The begining started out solid. Our favorite vamps & DJs are celebrating Holloween at the Smoking Pig, everyone seems to be having a good time....until the place goes up in flames. Well partially anyway. The culpret is searched for. Ciara and Shane try to plan a wedding. Another conspiracy is discovered. Old friendships are tested. New friend are made. Some characters are killed off. Or are they? Here's where it gets really strange...
After that it becomes confusing and...well...just plain freaking weird. I don't even know how to describe the trippy ending. In way it was sweet, but it also didn't feel authentic to Ciara's world.
