I thought I would list some of these for you in case you were worried.
“This story really worked for me and literally did a lot of laughing out loud, chortling and moaning.”
“UGH TED I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW”
“The big looming character finally enters, and he doesn’t disappoint at all.”
“Kate and Curran–as always, their chemistry is just amazing.”
“I was also surprised by the love scene. It was a little spicy in the wording, which I personally think is good, but I remember thinking “well then!” because it was unexpected.”
So there you go. Spicy love scenes, hateful Ted, and big looming character who doesn’t disappoint. Stop stressing and sending me panicked emails. I can also confirm that Kate survives the book. See? Now don’t you feel better?
Here is a tiny non-spoilery snippet.
The vampire ran to one side of the room, turned, and ran to the other. Ghastek must’ve been pacing back and forth and so caught up in his own thoughts, that he subconsciously pushed the vampire to do the same.
“It’s basic intelligence work,” Curran said. “You should’ve put it together. The pieces were there. You need to invest in information gathering. I get that you concentrate on research and development, but you can’t run the People without a solid intelligence network in place. If you can’t do it, get someone who can. I don’t even know why I’m telling you this, because really, your ignorance is my bliss.”
The vampire stopped and stared at Curran.
And that’s all you get.
