Overview

The Cirque de Charnu has come.

They will clean out the demons and the suicides, and move on. As long as they stay within the rules, Jill Kismet can't deny them entry. But she can watch--and if they step out of line, she'll send them packing.

When Cirque performers start dying grotesquely, Kismet has to find out why, or the fragile truce won't hold and her entire city will become a carnival of horror. She also has to play the resident hellbreed power against the Cirque to keep them in line, and find out why ordinary people are needing exorcisms. And then there's the murdered voodoo practitioners, and the zombies.

An ancient vengeance is about to be enacted. The Cirque is about to explode. And Jill Kismet is about to find out some games are played for keeps...

Flesh Circus is a good addition to the series but doesn't, in my opinion, advance it. The relationship between 'Kiss' and her 'apprentice' is not developed as much as I would have liked and her relationship with her 'cat' is left hanging. Not to mention the relationship between her MALE apprentice and her MALE Were-Lover. Are we, the readers, supposed to guess what MIGHT be going on? The series is starting to get a back log of 'unresolved issues'. And her Demon supporter languishes in some sort of odd, writer's Hell. All in all, a good read but nothing special. If the next book is as good then I might consider ending my interest in the series and keep the good memories of the previous books. I hope this is not an indication that the series is going downhill or, as might be more appropos...to Hell.

Another hard, scratchy book in the Jill Kismet series. Saul is back and Jill feels he's a bit off beat. There are misunderstandings around that that make the romance side of the book oddly compelling.There is also a complex story, unravelled and tidied up nicely at the end, in which it appears the voodoo practitioners and the traders, who normally avoid each other, are at war, all tied up with the return of Le Cirque de Charnu, a kind of circus of the damned.There's just enough there that I mostly worked it out first, although there are twists that I didn't get and there's some element of satisfaction in seeing how it unravels so I won't spoil that element further.And, of course, there's plenty of kick-ass action - shooting, whips, knives, punching the head off zombies to get them to stop and the like.

So the Jill Kismet series is turning into a series which I like but don't really enjoy. I like Saintcrow's writing; her worlds are fascinating, her tone is dark and edgy, and her style is just, well, cool.Unfortunately Flesh Circus didn't really hold my attention. I think the main problem is that it's always set on go, the pace is kind of Gabba-like, rather than any sort of ebb and flow. This also means she doesn't allow the characters a lot of interesting emotional interchange.
