Audio- ( 2.7 stars)
I liked it, I didn't like it. it was thrilling, it was annoying. This has to be the most conflicting book I have read this year. I am a big urban fantasy/mystery fan and this did have that feel. But, yes there is a but- it didn't flow evenly. I wanted more time with the story and less time with Jace. I liked it enough to continue the series.
The Positives- I liked the CSI feel to the detective work. I liked the world where vampires, lycanthropes and golems rule. It was a fresh new angle, with a devastating past history. The side characters all had a unique perspectives and abilities. Charlie, The Gollum was a show stealer. he is the reason I am continuing the series. I think he should have been the center of the story he was much more interesting than Jace. Jace, a smart, often stubborn to a ridiculous level, Psychological Profiler- when she's is thinking work, she's good.
The negatives-Alternate universes/realities are hard for me to read. I just have a hard time going between what is her and what is there. I had some issues with inconsistency with the blending of the two realities. Somethings blended because of fans and yet another didn't because they didn't know anything about that world ? *Conflicting bits* I also thought she took the whole ripped out of my reality thing way to easily, it needed more conflict. Jace talking to her brain was very irritating. Jace was rude, hurtful, and acted mean to a couple of the characters. I am not a fan of mean. The narrator on the audio made Jace sound like a spoiled teenager.
