Wow – that is almost exactly how I pictured Dante. Nice to see him on the cover. Oh yeah, and Heather’s there too 😉 It’s a GREAT cover and definitely needs to be featured today. Etched in Bone release date February 22nd 2011
I loved this book! It was a perfect addition to the series, and despite the slow, rocky start, the third book in the “The Maker’s Song” series, eventually found it’s rhythm.
I went from putting the book down frequently, using it to help me get cozy and fall asleep (I know, that sounds really bad), to losing all sleep last night as I stayed up reading, and woke up extra early this morning to finish it. The storyline captured me, and Dante takes us on quite a wild ride.
In the Blood (The Maker’s Song Book 2)
Upon concluding this book, I felt slightly melancholy, knowing that it would be at least a year before I could continue this gripping story. There are so many separate stories that all combine and revolve around one sole, yet very important Vampire.
The second installment of the series continues with a more in-depth look into Dante’s horrible childhood, his fragile spirit, and his own personal angst. As a born vampire, his childhood consisted of living in an FBI controlled experiment that psychologically induced “kidnapped” children into becoming psychopaths and serial killers (at the hands of a rogue FBI division, headed by a Vampire and evil psychiatrist) via the means of torture, beatings, taking the toys and killing the loved ones that these particular children loved.
A Rush of Wings: Book One of The Maker’s Song
Wow! I have just finished the book, and it was an exhausting but exhilarating trip. Thank goodness I already have the second book in the series. It brings me some comfort in knowing I still have more time with these interesting characters. I’ve just got to know what’s coming next!
This book was a definite change of pace in reading material. Although it does have a “romantic” subplot, I would not consider this a romance novel (at least not like the ones I’ve been reading). The core of the story delves into twists and turns of all sorts. It basically played out like an action movie. Tons of unrelenting danger from the get-go. So much so, that I NEEDED to put the book down every once in awhile for a breather. On occasion, my impatience got the best of me, and when I realized we were about to embark on yet another struggle/battle, I would take a break.
