My favorite part of this series is the fact that the characters are all flawed. They aren’t machines. They have experience bad things and now have to deal with that and move on. They don’t just kill enemies and move on unscathed. This gives them depth. This makes them human.
Rebecca Zanetti tortures me again. I don’t think I am going to be able to rest until I get all the books in this series. Please type faster. I must have them now!
I am giving this story 3 stars with a caveat. This was a hard book to get through since author Shelley Laurenston is using a lesser known Pantheon, Norse Mythology, as the basis for her story. There was too much set up and yet not enough, and not enough focus on the two main characters. Lot of interesting characters were introduced but it feels like it will take several books to really get into this series.
Utterly disappointed. All the things I started out liking the most about this series started becoming annoying as there was no character growth. Each story works to keep Mattie and Hurley apart and each time it seems more contrived. This is definitely my last Mattie Winston mystery.
