Y'all, I don't think I'm emotionally ready for this. Good thing I'm only halfway through my reread of the second one.

I have a serious dilemma. So! The third book comes out Tuesday and I listened to Nevernight on audible which made my commute super enjoyable. I downloaded and started Godsgrave and it's just as fun. But...now...I'm going to be on a long weekend and not really have the chance to listen to much before Tuesday. Do I switch over to the book and power through for Tuesday or do I keep listening because I love the narrator's over the top performance?

Soubhiville I‘d probably try to finish before the next book‘s release... 3w

Alright so I'm loving this one...and the author seems like an absolute dear...and it's getting me in the mood for more historical murder mysteries. The spookier the better. I haven't explored this genre a whole lot, so I'd love some recommendations.

IndyHannaJones I realize this book isn't 'historical' necessarily but ya know what I mean 3w

Wow. That ending. I feel like the first half dragged a wee but the last chapters had me dying for more. Ok, and let's all admit Hakaimono is sassy and kinda loveable and new demon Tatsumi is kinda hot. I'm just saying!

I must say, I greatly enjoyed this one and wouldn't mind another book or two in this world, with these characters. It does get a bit slow in the middle, but I just loved the atmosphere and Elisabeth, Silas, and Nathaniel. A lot of heart and a great take on the 'girl loves books a lot and this makes her special' theme.

IndyHannaJones @Lostinagoodbook so that is exactly what irritated me about the premier. The new Myfawny is super sassy and funny...and the tv one was...not. I honestly was disappointed because it is such a goofy, surreal book and thr show just felt like a government drama. 3mo
IndyHannaJones @Jillylovesbooks the books are super funny and the 'aesthetic' of the show feels really different sooo...take that as you will... 3mo

Welp, I'll be honest: this was not my favorite of dear TP's. I love Granny and I love the concept and it had some funny, insightful moments, but dare I say...it felt boring? Do we ever see Esk and Simon again? Do we learn more about her training? Why don't we ever see other women at the academy in any of the other books? I always love TP so I'll give it a pick...but it fell pretty flat for me compared to some of his other work.

Cheshirecat913 I had to push through this one myself. There are fun parts and I always love the inanimate, animate objects (the staff and castle). But I agree it was a bit flat and dragged. 3mo

...And then the one vampire woman who is like “I'm going wear pants and eat children because fuck society“ immediately gets brought low because a) there must've been something funny in those children b) she's too ditzy to remember she's allergic to sunlight. Penny and Genevieve should just runaway together. I know there's a whole series after this...but come on. More badass hookers, less dudes fighting all their battles for them.

Women in this never got a chance to stand up and get their own closure or revenge. Mary Jean (or Lucy) got 'fridged' to show the final descent of Jack's mind. You're telling me, that as the real Lucy's get Mary thought herself a weak little girl who can't fight back? Lucy was wild & fierce. Mary would be to0. Kim can rewrite an entire chapter of history but having a prostitute get off a few parting shots is too far fetched????

4/4 Totally written by a dude. None of the female characters were given any sort of chance to be full rounded. Genevieve is over 400 years old, with seniority over Dracula, and the author frequently called her 'the girl'. She also apparently can't win her own battles or take her own kill blows BECAUSE BEAUREGARD LITERALLY FINISHED ALL HER BATTLES FOR HER. He got the Chinese dude called off of her and he killed Jack for her.K, I'm not done yet...

(3/4) This felt so long. I feel like he sacrificed actual story to explore the impacts of vampirism as part of a society. While that was fascinating, I couldn't help but think CAN SOMETHING HAPPEN NOW!? Yes, there were some riots but they felt very sudden and we got kind of a bird's eye view and you didn't really care. You know the murder from literally chapter 1. The ending is sudden. No twists other than Dracula is actually really gross.

(2/4) The Good: Well, the premise is just brilliant. I love seeing some familiar characters in an entirely different situation. I always kinda rooted for Dracula in the original. What would happen to culture, economics, social niceties, fashion, etc. if vampires became not only the norm, but began to create an entire new class for society. The world building is fascinating.
Also, Genevieve is a BAMF.

Carla I bailed, too. I was irked at the name Audrey Rose. That‘s like writing a possession story and naming your character Regan. Then there‘s a logistical error in the first scene, where her Uncle cleans another knife and hands her this fresh knife for the second cut? Then I bailed when AR stated that scalpel blades are 8 inches long. They most certainly are not. I can‘t. 3w
