    Not Quite There

    The second of the series and much better than the first though I can't bring myself to give it a higher rate. The book is filled with repetitive themes such as Gaby's inner dialogue and thoughts as well as her interaction with Luther.

    What I like about this book is the character development that is extended past the last chapter of the <i>Servant: The Awakening</i>. Though Mort barely makes a few appearances in this novel, it is clear that he is a completely different person. We also see Gaby and Luther change in their behavior with each other. Some of the dialogue can get old and predictable, but I still loved the couple and wanted them to get together. Since the beginning, Foster has teased us with the sexual tension between the two but in this novel, she gives a little scene that keeps the weary holding out for when they finally will get together. It's short, it's spicy yet predictable, and it keeps you frustrated.

    What I don't like is that there was a sheer drop off of paranormalcy from the first novel. In the first novel, we are given grotesque images of twisted evil beings. <i>The Awakening</i> didn't touch on that. Instead, we get a psychotic woman trying to be a boy, her deranged uncle and aunt who take pleasure in torture people, and men who like to abuse prostitutes. Honestly, I would have kept the twisted beings that morph into monsters only Gaby could see to keep with the theme of the first novel. However, Foster did put a lot more about auras, which I greatly enjoyed. I also loved how she gave another character besides Gaby any form of superhuman abilities.

    Again, not a great book and not one to take as a series fantasy novel, but I liked it all the same and I will be reading the next in the series which is also the last.

    Enough for me

    I'm a big Lori Foster fan so I was willing to give this new series a fair chance and the premise sounded interesting. I read the first book and while I wasn't too jazzed about it I figured it was just a set up for the rest of the series.
    However...

    I agree with others who said the words were out of control. I'm a fast reader and fairly well educated but there were too many words that needed to be looked up. Unfortunately, I read this while on vacation and didn't have access to a dictionary.

    I'm not convinced that Gaby is one of the good guys. She seems to enjoy not just killing, but killing in brutal ways.

    Gaby is a 21 year old described throughout the book as narrow hipped with small breasts, skinny, scrawny, bony, plain and homely. She was also rude, crass, mean, uncaring, insulting and violent. As far as I can tell she didn't shower, wash her hair or her clothes.

    Luther was a hot cop, old enough to be her father (big Ick factor for me), and he was attracted to her because??? He and Ann were suited to each other; just don't see him and Gaby together.

    It looks like there's at least one more book in the series but I'm done.
