The Taste of Night

Vicki Pettersson ´ 4 Summary

Ok I ll admit Fragments of Isabella: A Memoir of Auschwitz it Maybe I was just expecting too much after The Scent of Shadows Because even though I know this was a well written cleverly plotted book I couldn t help but be disappointed Before I getnto why I just want to reiterate that this Minzokugaku to Minzokugaku is an amazing series Vicki Pettersson has created a genuinely uniue universen an already saturated market I guess these next comments could be considered the nit picking of a fanMy trouble was with the main character Jo While I had uite enjoyed her scary yet vulnerable character n the first novel she looses all sense n The Taste of Night She goes back and forth from rational to reactionary The plot reuired conflict within the Light Troup which lead to Jo needing a massive personality overhaul for half the book It really felt forced a change contrived solely to fit the action and was Magnet inevitably disappointingOne thing that I absolutely lovedn this book however was Hunter Pettersson took the tension between him and Jo noticeable from the very first time they beat the crap out of each other and really rolled with t Although he was a relatively prominent character n the first book I hadn t felt too strongly either way about his Making Him Sweat (Wilinski's, involvementn the story In The Taste of Night he became the sole voice of reason and logic piercing through Jo s muddled narration That alone had me wanting to jump The Great Divergence: China, Europe, and the Making of the Modern World Economy into his unfortunately fictional armsSo considering that Jo s continuednfatuation with Ben Traina s pretty friggin annoying He s made out to be the love of her life when all they had together was a few months as teens I mean really That along with an annoying revelation towards the end made this a book I am never going to re read There were actual chapters that made my eyes glaze over no doubt n the vain hope that when I refocused the page would have magically altered Which s kinda depressing when I think about tBottom line I wish I could tell you to skip t but you d be missing out on a great universe Hopefully The Touch of Twilight will return the series to Library Wars: Love and War 10 its former gloryhttpdeadbookdarlingblogspotcom2 The Scent of Shadows was one of the first urban fantasies I read but I knewt was different even then Many people said the first book was too much setup and not enough follow through and that t was confusing I saw t as exciting uniue and Crossing Boarders interesting It was not the typical butt kicking ultra powerful super perfect girl that everyone loves running around killing bad guys The Taste of Night simplified things a bit but was stillnteresting The best part the charactersJoanna Archer s trapped n another body and has to live two lives She The Outcast Highlander isn t perfect ands nterested n revenge than helping her fellow Zodiac members She Baiae isn t sure who she can trustsn t sure Celebrity, Inc.: How Famous People Make Money if shes being used and In Den Nachmittag Geflüstert Gedichte 1909 1914 is still strong and determined Her loventerest Hunter Reid Alleje 2 is euallyntriguing Everything seems realistic and plausible and that La Collection Du Centre Georges Pompidou: Un Parcours Au Musee D'Art Moderne de La Ville de Paris is something I appreciaten urban fantasyThe story here Die Besessene is decent butt s not the focus of the book The plague takes up a few pages and the solution to the problem takes a few It Ghost Flight (Will Jaeger, isnteresting but the Kafir Liberal interactions between the characters and the world buildings much exciting I can t wait to find out about the signs of the zodiac and I think this series has staying power Hopefully the momentum can be maintained This book was freaking fantastic As much as I liked the first book Flight or Fight in this series this on just blewt out of the water There Vlad III Dracula: The Life and Times of the Historical Dracula is still a lot of mythology being built around what you re reading and sometimes you have to pause to think about whats really happening but t doesn t take take away from the story at all The characters are #so relatable You just want to hugpat their headkissbeat the crap #relatable You just want to hugpat their headkissbeat the crap of them And the end Sheesh The END I can t WAIT to read the third book In fact I think I WON T wait leaves to go read Can Joanna Archer overcome the desire for vengeance that drives her nto defeat after defeat and ultimately her own destruction I take that to be the theme of this second novel n the Signs of the Zodiac series The first book The Scent of Shadows began with that "theme Joanne putting herself at risk to draw out the man who raped her and just barely "Joanne putting herself at risk to draw out the man who raped her and just barely to kill her when she was a teenager ten years later she knows Krav Maga and wants a re match so she can kill him But then Joanna s whole life and dentity change drastically she suffers a terrible loss and Where's Ringo? is virtually forced to become an agent of Light representing the sign Sagittariusn a universe based on the Zodiac with a superhero of Light and a supervillain of Shadow for each of the twelve Star Signs Along With signs along with cast of supporting characters for each side Remember the Light troupe welcomed her The Cat Club into their secret base by drugging her and operating on her to transform her bodynto that of the person who died all without her consent of course because that s how the good guys work All these agents of Light and Shadow live double lives going out Yo Quiero Decir Sunburn into the world as regular humans but Joanna must go through the worldmpersonating her loved one while pretending that she Joanna was the one who died I gave the first book four stars chiefly for Joanna s strength of character A Witch Alone in a life situation that constantly triggered her strong emotions and for herndependence of mind and spirit that turned out to be a crucial asset within her militaristic Zodiacal troupe For about the first book see my review at does this book have seuelitis For me Eisenhower: Soldier and President it does We still have Joanna s first person narration with all her thoughts and veryntense feelings but Der Spinnenmann it s a few months later and her daily adventures don t rise to the astounding level of the first book Life goes on prob. The Second Sign of the ZodiacBeing mortalsn’t easy Being a superhero Stundenplan is even harderEven mortal Joanna Archer was nobody’sdea of a victim But now nfused wit. ,
Lems come up etc etc and as expected the Shadow side has a devilish plan to get at the Light side by releasing a strange plague that kills nnocent mortals by the hundreds and of course Joanna may be the one to pluck the cure from the Shadow agents But Joanna s thirst for revenge dominates her life nowShe knows now who her attacker Ralph Peer and the Making of Popular Roots Music is Joauin agent of Shadow for the sign Auarius and she knows that as an older very powerful supervillain he vastly outmatches her But she disobeys orders and goes after him again and again getting herself badly beaten and needing to be rescued Worsen her uest for an Crossing Bok Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship Freedom impossible victory she puts her comrades and evennnocent mortals Beauty Wreckage (Broken Crowns in danger Shes somewhat self critical true and she has rational moments but her fury overcomes her reasonThe dense rich descriptions of the first book are still here with emphasis on scents now that her powers have developed and Joanna The Cuckolds Calling is still a strong person living anncredibly difficult life as half Light and half Shadow Her Shadow side comes from her real father a being called the Tulpa who seems to run the Shadows or does he and Motherland: A Novel it s the obvious reason the Light agents put restrictions on her which she keeps violating andn this novel I admired her Fractions: The First Half of The Fall Revolution intention to use her Shadow side for the benefit of the Light But good heavens she exercises poor judgment again and again and as real astrologers can tell you judgments a Sagittarian virtueOn the other hand I definitely liked the ending It promises a new Joanna and a new mproved set of relationships for all the ssues that are forthcoming The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap in the next book This series really annoyed me I enjoyed the background of the main character and the build up of book one but I thought Scent of shadows was better organizedt seemed like a second draft This book was a bit sloppy for a few reasonsIt really Latin for Children Primer a DVDs Chant CD irked me when Warren basically said Regans a puppet for the king of shadows but apparently Joanna forgot this because of her shock when her dad told her that he knew Regans schemesI didnt like that Warren s like the dictator of their little group of light nstead of the leader I understand the space s hope made for character development or a part to be explained later Maybe Warrens a bad guy after all but his character comes off as a brazen teen not as an experienced adult Warren just bugs The disadvantage of Joanna joining so late Brazilian Surrender is understandable but Warren came off as a hustler He gives Jo a false ultimatum to either join the lightn 24 hrs n the first novel n order to manipulate her to rush to a decision she Godforsaken Idaho isnt committed to making and thats understandable n some respects although arguably not very light of him t makes him seem as though he places mortals and the troop above Jo even tho he needs her bc shes the Kirios or we but then n book 1 and 2 he has the audacity to bitch and moan that Jo snt putting everyone else above her when the light hasnt really proven to be worth Peer Support Handbook for the Police Officer itn respect to the way they treat her as a tolerable frenemyIve come to the conclusion Warren The Devil's Double Buch, Deutsch Ausgabe: Ich war Saddams Sohn is a crappy leader that really doesn t care about his troop mean the author says he doesnt even You know this fool would distroy everyone just to Take down the Tulpa I also dont like how he seems to be the leader bc of his star sign dont get me started on the zodiac obviously the author s allergic to research not Because He Really Cares he really cares his team A real leader snt Warren A real leader owns their mistakes and B is for Buckeye: An Ohio Alphabet if a team member makes a huge mistake a leader takest as their own fault But no warrens too busy scape goating on the back of Jo and throwing around blame to hide his misdeeds Jo s character really bugged me as well I liked that shes still deciding who she Angriff The German Attack On Stalingrad In Photos is through the choices she makes but she s really not as clever as she thinks shes I was appalled when she risked that little girls aura to give her ex the cure which wasnt done for the right reasons It felt like an obsession with her ex than actually needing to save livesI hate how she calls her self a hero when shes not doing t because of a need to protect others Instead she runs around trying to accomplish personal goals at the expense of everyone else Its good that she finally s beginning to get t at the end of book 2 but t still bothered meThe hugest ssue think was the authors writing The world Up North Michigan Wines by the Bay: Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas Explored isnt really clear not enough setting description andts not written clearly This book Reckless: My Life as a Pretender is even worst than the first and seems like a rough draft that needed editing A lot of editingDont even get me started on Jo s rape as a child The way the author writest n the first book was very vague I dont want details but she fails to show the true horror of rape of birthing a child from the assault tho we learn differently She tells us nstead of showing us She failed Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now in making Jodentifiable and relatable bc of this It just made the work seem sloppy and partially completedShe fails to really give the light a cohesive Guns of Arizona: A Land Where Legends Are Made ideology as well Theres just not enough build to the group and following along with the comics doesnt help bcn this book she doesnt read us anyIdk Bitter Creek Posse: A tale of the Old West ifll continue the series This Dárek z pravé lásky: 12 zimních políbení is 100% better than the firstn the series making t about as good as the average first novel The major PLUSSES ARE SOME ACTUAL SPINE IN THE MAIN CHARACTER are some actual spine n the main character nice Rambles Around Folkestone: And Other Special Articles (Classic Reprint) if transparent plot by the Bad GuysTM some deus ex machina that fits the comic genre very well and an attempt to clean up some of the absolutely horrible holesn the world setupOur heroine the superhero with no discernable special powers other than the body of a playmate a real playmate she was The Way of the Scarlet Pimpernel in the
