This Side of the Grave

This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost After reading the first book in this series, I was semi-hooked, if a little dubious about the glowing green-eyed brand of vampires. I read the next few, as I'd bought them all together from a previously-read discount rack at our local independent book store. I felt like the second, and up to this one, were better, and got interested in the characters, and the offshoots from this series that Ms. Frost is working on are interesting, good reads. But I was really disappointed by this one. The writing seemed to have reverted to something more along the lines of the debut novel. There was a lot of inner monologuing going on, page after page, and we didn't even meet the protagonist in the story until somewhere around the last section of the book. I know a lot of people are avid fans of this series, but I think I might be done with it. There are SO many paranormal series out there to discover, I think it's best to read the ones that really knock you out, and put the others to rest :)
