2022 Reads #1
EOTV went from a So-So to a Pick with Reservations. My first experience of this author. Loved the narration by Gabriel, the plot, the action, and plenty more kept back for the next novels.....but BOY! it was soooooooo long. Took me 3 weeks to get through it. A great winter read if you have the time!
“Ben Mears has returned to Jerusalem‘s Lot in hopes that exploring the history of the Marsten House, an old mansion long the subject of rumor and speculation, will help him cast out his personal devils and provide inspiration for his new book. But when two young boys venture into the woods, and only one returns alive, Mears begins to realize that something sinister is at work—in fact, his hometown is under siege from forces of darkness.”
I am a Kendra‘s Blake fan so when this new book came out I immediately grabbed it. I had no idea it was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer book! There is obviously a lot of Buffy canon I have no knowledge of and this book tries to catch you up on everything you might have missed….which is A LOT. I found all of those stories distracting. This one is about Buffy and Willow‘s children…the next generation of vampire slayers. I think I should rewatch TV show!
This is part of my 1982-2022 reading challenge. Published in 2007. First in a series. Overall it was a good set up for the coming books mixing witch lore with vampire. So yeah hadn‘t read that yet. I wasn‘t comfortable with some of the vocabulary such as “Fag” and “Retard” but otherwise solid PN read with a dash of romance #19822022 #romantsy @Librarybelle
Just ordered my books for the #swoonathon swap and since I was using my husband's Amazon account, I couldn't help but add a little something for myself... ???? It's a good thing he loves me! I'm justifying it by telling myself it's an author he also likes so its "for both of us."
