    Family pretty much begins where Soulless left off: they are runn

    Family pretty much begins where Soulless left off: they are running for their lives, but now they Andromeda, a very special meta with very special powers.  Sienna is a jumbled mess of emotions in this story and we learn as much about her as she learns about herself.  We delve much deeper into the rocky relationship she has with her mother through flashbacks she has in important and stressful moments.  I enjoy flashbacks-as long as they are used sparingly.  I do not, however, like when every other page is a flashback.  Crane, thankfully, didn't do that here.  He chose to give us a crucial piece of  insight through these flashbacks that were placed carefully in the story.  We were not bombarded with flashbacks like the waves crashing upon the rocky shores. 
    Also there is a lot of heartbreak in Family.  The kind of heartbreak that can rip out your still beating heart leaving you gasping for breath as tears fall down your face. The pain Sienna goes through in the plot left me so hurt for her as well as some of the pain she caused others, including Zach.  But hey, don't worry it is not just full of tears and grief, because let's not forget that Sienna is a snarky chic! 
    Even in the most dire circumstances, Sienna finds the time for a little humor- I mean come on, just because you are fighting off these insanely bloodthirsty metas that are trying to tear you apart piece by piece doesn't mean you can't throw sarcasm into the mix.
     And of course: vampires!  I knew Crane was considering doing a project with vampires, but I love how he worked the concept into this series and made it work with the plot wonderfully.  These vampires are the "bloodhounds" of the meta civilization and are portrayed in a very animalistic way.   I mean think about it; if we have metas that can shoot water out of their body, create a windstorm, are encased in fire, then the vamps aren't that far off.  This keeps us on our toes, so to speak, as to what else Crane will surprise us with in the future. 




    Family just pretty much took my breath away, made me laugh, made me cry, and shocked the hell out of me with all the secrets that get revealed in this one.  I liked the way it ended, not really as a cliffhanger but more of a declaration.  Of course with secrets being revealed, we have new ones being discovered too.  Crane showed us how his writing has improved through Family, and has also promised us that he can, and will deliver on great story telling no matter the cost. 




    If you have never been a fan of sci/fi but enjoy urban fantasy or subjects comparable to X-Men, Fantastic Four, or even the Justice League, I urge you to give this series a try.  This is undoubtedly one of the BEST science fiction/UF/action series I have ever had the pleasure of finding.
    Seriously, it reads like a movie being played in your mind and I could definitely see its worth on the big screen. 
    I give Family five hearts.  I wish I could give it a hundred thousand stars, hearts, etc. and I cannot wait till the next book, Omega.

    It's OK.

    As to pervious comments that it was degrading to women, well historically during the times of kings and feudal systems we (women) were just another piece of property. The style was well written and the characters ok. I did not dislike nor did I extremely like any of them. I read a little more than half the book and had to put it down. To me it just was really boring. I am not inclined to purchase the next in the series.
    But I can see where others who enjoy this type of story would find it amazing. Me, not so much.

    Finally

    At last we find out about the Mother. This series is getting to be expensive and it seems to go on and on and on. I like the fast paced action and the super heros too. I wish there was something for the main character to look forward to. It seems she can never be happy and it seems so unfair!

    The author really outdid himself with this 4th installment to the "Girl In A Box" series. The story starts off with a chilling glimpse into Sienna's past that gives the reader deeper insight into the relationship between Sienna and her mother. After that, it's off to the races for Sienna again, as she's dropped back into the action right where the last book left off. (For new readers of Mr. Cranes work, I would highly suggest reading the previous books in the series first)

    I was delighted to read as Sienna regained some of her sense of self and had a few brief encounters with some past “head case” characters. I am hoping to see more of them in the next books. I loved the note this one ended on, though I was disappointed that it was the end and I have to wait with baited breath for the next one to come out. I can’t wait to see where Mr. Crane is going to take us. This series truly is like no other I've read, there is no guessing where the story is going to go next. The twists are masterfully done and the pace will keep you on the edge of your seat!
