75 in ’13: Autumn Bones

Git it, Daisy.

Git it, Daisy.

 

For the sixty-seventh book in the 2013 challenge, I read Autumn Bones, book two in the Agents of Hel series by Jacqueline Carey.

I liked the first book so much, I immediately bought the second and read it, too! It’s nice to go back to the beginning of a series, the beginning of a character arc, and read about a person who really doesn’t have a whole lot of resources or skills up their sleeves. They’re surviving on their wits and their guts, and still trying to figure out who is reliable and who to kick to the curb.

Oh, an orgy. Okay then.

I’mma be honest; the ghouls are an interesting take on that particular horror legend, but they legit freak me out.

Did not care for the sister/mother thing happening. Appreciated the extra ladies in the cast, but didn’t like the impending cat-fight hanging over the situation.

Still good, more tangles than the last one, a little slow in the middle during the self-doubt and soul-searching, which isn’t unusual. I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
