Weekly Book Round Up #53

15 August 2014

I really wish these books didn't have such cringey covers! This is the sixth novel in Jess Haines's H&W Investigations series. This story picks up more or less straight after the end of the fifth novel, with Shiarra being held captive by Max, a sadistic vampire. Shiarra spends a large part of the book actively defying Max which results in a lot of punishment for her. Eventually she escapes, and teams up with some of Alec's vampires to rescue her friend Sara and the rest of Max's 'pets'. I didn't find that I enjoyed this one as much as the other books in the series, and I found the first part of the book quite difficult to get through. The ending and the final battle were much more entertaining though!

Nicola's rating: 4/5

This is the fifth book in a spin-off from the Vampire Academy books. It pretty much kicks off from the end of the previous book, with Sydney captured by the Alchemists and being tortured into confessing her 'sin'. Adrian is still with Jill and her guardians, until his mother arrives and takes him back to the vampire court, where he soon spirals into an alcohol fuelled depression after failing to locate Sydney through dream-walking. He does eventually get his act together and forms a plan to rescue Sydney. I found this book a really exciting installment to the series, a lot of big things happen which are obviously lining everything up for the final book, which I can't wait for. February seems so far away!
