But will their battle for Dru’s heart get in the way of her survival?

i decided to read this series because in book one, Dru was described as a chick who does not submit to anyone. well, if there’s one criteria that i look for in a book, it’s a strong heroine. Dru seemed like one. i was so wrong!!!

Dru evolved into a whiny, UNself-sufficient babe in book three. WTH? where did punk-ass Dru went? did she died and the author replaced her with a mumbling-bumbling bimbo who cannot decide which boy she really wants? for someone who grew up with training for chasing and killing monsters, Dru cannot figure out a way to stop the vamp who’s hell bent on killing her. i was like, huh? maybe her mind was befuddled with guy issues 😐 yeah, right. *snorts*

the only thing that made me salvage my opinion for this series is the Dru-Ana face off in the gym. this is not an ordinary catfight. Svetocha vs Svetocha. FINALLY. for one who’s hoping for some heart-stopping action since page 1, i was rubbing my hands with anticipation when i reached this scene. sadly, it is the only note-worthy chapter in this horrible book.

this is the first book series i read where the story and plot rapidly dwindles and snuffs out like a candle flame with every book released.

will i read book 4? for christophe’s sake, yes. but i have a feeling Team Graves has something to celebrate by the end of this series.
