I finally finished my BDV revamp and started Lover Unleashed. I'm not very far into it but I like it so far. I also finished Eternal Kiss of Darkness, and flipped back to Eve Dallas, Conspiracy in Death.

I am back to reading the In Death series. I finally managed to hit a bookstore and picked up a copy of Indulgence In Death since it is finally out in paperback. Have to say I was a bit disappointed in the book. Not sure exactly why, it just felt off to me somehow, and a bit like a re-run plot wise considering the whole two friends/game playing= murder thing. (Hope that wasn't too spoilery for anyone who hasn't read the series).

Is that the most recent one? If that's the first one that's been disappointing, that's super-impressive. I can't believe how many books there are! I'm on #8 I think and I like each one better than the last, I think mostly because I get to know and love the characters and their interactions with each other more and more. Peabody is awesome. :) Anyway. I do hope if she loses her inspiration she'll stop, rather than pulling a Sookie (which is what I'm going to call it from now on when writers lose interest in their own books and start putting out garbage).

Roarke is definitely awesome, no doubt about that.

Well, it wasn't just the re-run plot that bothered me, there was something about the play between Eve and Roarke that I found off. I may have to re-read it to see what the deal was, could have just been the mood I was in or something.

Treachery In Death is the newest release and it came out in hard cover in February.
The series as a whole is fabulous. There have been a couple of books that I like less than others, but none that I think feel as though Robb is no longer invested in the series. The only one I really specifically disliked was Salvation In Death; overall it was a good story, but as a born and raised Catholic (and one who has a brother who is a priest), I had very specific objections to the storyline - not because I didn't believe it could actually happen, but because there were basic flaws in the research about the Catholic Church that made the story implausible to me.

Currently reading Shadowfever! I just finished Dreamfever today, and thank goodness I picked up Shadowfever at the same time or else I was going to die waiting!
