What disappointed you about A Perfect Blood?

I was completely frustrated with Rachel's sheer stupidity in this book. She continues to ignore the advise of people who have proven trust worthy and paves her own path to harm and destruction of others. Then, she whines about how bad she feels for the consequences of her poor choices and actions (or lack thereof). I had to walk away from the story several times because it got to be so irritating. I am also not impressed with her flaky 'romantic' intrigues. She goes through men like toilet paper - if not in the flesh then at least in her mind. Both Pearce and Al were notably absent from most the story and characters I wish had stayed out of the plot are resurrected. Summary of the story here was that Rachel had to get a bunch of people hurt before she could embrace the fact that she was a demon and use her demon powers.


Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

Yes. I will continue to read the series and hope that Rachel grows up a bit by the next book.


Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

Jinks.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. Primarily, the plot was lacking, my favorite characters were mostly missing, and nothing was admirable about the main character in this book.

Lacked Luster

Up to this point I have loved The Hallows series, however this book was a dissapointment. The first half of the book felt like a waste of time. The plot line was non-existent and Rachel was whinier than usual - to the point where I didn't want to listen any longer. I toughed it out though and felt dissatisfied at the end.

Of course the narrator did a fantastic job like usual.

I hope that the next book is better. This book was such a flop that I feel as though the publisher owes me 1 of my 2 credits back.
