Firstly, apologies for not posting lately, I’ve just started uni and have been super busy.
So I was sent a pre-release copy of the latest Darynda Jones book to review, it comes out in October and oh my god it was amazing. I couldn’t put it down, I read it in an evening!
I have to say, I didn’t think the last instalment was that great so I’m really pleased that I enjoyed this one more. I love Charley and the series in general, I love the humour in the books and that it’s coupled with a sexy edge.
In this book, Charley has to find out what happened to Reyes in the god-glass to make him come back as not-Reyes as well as stop not-Reyes from going all angry, destroyer God all over Earth. When the plot twist at the end happened, I admit, I didn’t see it coming at all. However, I’m a little confused as to how Reyes knew he had to do all that to protect Beep (stardust is a way cooler name than beep and I totally guessed that beep was what he meant earlier on.)
I wish Charley had gone to see the prophet who wrote the books, I was surprised she didn’t but I figure it might come into play at some point. Generally, I preferred the plot in this book to some of the recent ones but the whole Reyes and Charley just barely missing each other all the time is growing a little frustrating and tiring.
The last chapter killed me. I thought early on about them missing Amber in the supernatural watch list. Oh god. Oh god. Also, more Quentin and Amber is needed, Q&A Invesigations was brilliant!
I’m so glad I didn’t give up on this series because this was honestly so good and I can’t wait for the next one!
