Synopsis:

Bethany Anne must begin cleaning up the mess left behind by Michael. She has to start cleaning up the Forsaken who are starting to make inroads in North America due to Michael’s absence. She has to start putting Michael’s “good” children back on the straight and narrow and have them go back to their duties of keeping the supernatural outside of the purview of the normal world. She also has to put the Council of the Were in their place, as several members are thinking that without Michael around they can begin shoving the humans around, perhaps even ruling them.

While ALL this is going on, Bethany Anne also has to keep in mind that the overall threat is so much greater and her final goal must be to get humanity into space and ready to fight off potential hordes of ravening aliens.

Sometimes, being Queen Bitch just isn’t worth the hassle.

 

My Thoughts:

This was F-U-N!! Nothing deep, nothing worth a re-read but my goodness, Bethany Anne kicks some serious butt. She is pretty much a Mary Sue, but only if Mary Sue was a psycho violent vampire who was trying to protect the planet. I can handle that.

Even through all of this, Bethany Anne is still planning on just how she is going to save the planet. She might be violent but she’s not at all stupid. She’s beginning to make more and more use of TOM and she’s already thinking about how she can use its knowledge to grow humanity’s knowledge AND give her the funds necessary to build the space stuff that will be needed.

Thinking about this book, I would compare it to the earlier MHI books in terms of action and violence. I’d compare it quality-wise to the first MHI book as well. The thing that gives me pause is that Anderle has a bajillion books while Correia has a steady output of steadily increasing quality. I’m kind of afraid to find out where Anderle plateaus or even nosedives. That’s the only problem and that is all in my head.

I almost started in on the next book right away but thank goodness my inner core of self control kept me safe. Nothing is worse than having too much of a good time all at once.

★★★★☆

    LOL, the title alone makes it sound like a fun (but not too deep) book. Glad to know it lived up to that expectation!

  3. I’m sort of surprised that you even picked this up to look at what it was about with a title like that. 😛 Glad to hear it turned out to be addictive and fun.

  4. A psycho Mary Sue vampire is a combination I never encountered before, and I don’t know if I want to be intrigued or terrified… 😀 😀

      I know. I would be a bit put off from my own description BUT, for whatever reason, the series is really working for me. I just hope it keeps working.

      And it goes to show that Pgsrambling did a good job in his reviews 🙂

  5. Oh, very cool! The author must be a David Bowie fan 😉 I like that!

    The book wouldn’t be for me, but I am glad it was so much fun and almost got you to jump straight into the next part. Those are the best books 🙂

      Ahh, if he’s using music stuff, then that would be going right over my head.Thanks for pointing that out.

      So few books now make me want to dive right into the next that I really value the ones that can do that 🙂
