I was extremely disappointed in Duncan’s story. The story did not do him justice. Lucas was an interesting character when I read about him in Denver. He was exactly what I expected in his story. No straying from his true character. Fun. Arrogant. Charismatic. However, much like Duncan’s story, we were forced to endure the women behind the powerful Lords. Kathryn was annoying, but gladly not TSTL. Kathryn was definitely boring. Her life was boring. Her job was boring. She was barely an FBI agent. No wonder she worked the desk. I actually liked her. She both bored and annoyed me, but I liked her. She was supposed to be tough. What she was was naive, but tenacious. She was so inexperienced, and too stubborn to admit she didn’t know how to investigate her brothers disappearance.
I did not feel a connection between Lucas and Kathryn. Just lust. The stories plot had potential. Too much dialogue. Not enough action. I agree with other reviewers about the character/ story inconsistency’s. Lucas is a powerful Lord vampire. How is it possible that Magda can plot against him, in his territory, and he not be aware. The Chicago Lord, definitely weaker, was able to control Alex, while he was miles away. Unbelievable. I must admit, I did skim over some of the sex scenes. Mostly because the love that was rushing forth was not believable.
I am finding that the author continues to write these strong women badly. Makes me miss Raphael and Cyn’s story. The series isn’t evolving. The stories are missing something. I do recommend and will continue reading the series.
