Valchek's "Brave New World"

I collect vampire books so any one with even one vampire gets in to my collecton. I've read and have over 300 books on the subject and have become pretty selective of the ones that I recommend. D.D Barant's book is a winner. The situation in which she places her main character, Jace, is fresh and most creative...An FBI agent from Earth in another reality. Great spin. Jace's character is well developed and funny as "hell". There were numerous times in the book that I found myself laughing out loud at the things she would say. I liked the other characters also, especially Charlie, the Golem. He was full of dry wit also.
I found myself however, not getting a real feel for Cassius. This I think is understandable because his character is on the periphery. I do think that he will be developed in the next book in the series. For some reason his character reminds me of Karen Chances' character, Mircea, the vampire in her Cassandra Palmer series. Just a feeling.
I think if you enjoy this genre and like to laugh then this is a great read.

It's an "okay" book

I had high hopes when I began reading Dying Bites. Jace, the main character, has a sharp tongue and clever wit. A little goes a long ways, but wanes with time. When she makes comments that only someone from her universe would understand, things go flat. There's this big build up for a major disaster. But she goes through it too easily. I feel the build up out runs the climax. I feel I have been cheated. I was ready for something really way out, but had to be satisfied with the mundane. I gave this a two star rating because I felt the work having gone into the book had to account for something.

    Poor compairason

    I saw several people compare this work to Briggs and Andrews work, just because all three have shapeshifters in them does not make them all on the same level. Compairing crybaby Kitty to Mercy or Kate Daniels is like compairing a tricycle to a Harley. There is no compairason. Kate or Mercy would never allow even their Alpha have unwanted sex with them without fighting back. Nor would they beg or cringe away when confronted. This work appears more like the ramblings of a teenage writer than an expieranced author.
