We all have different hobbies in life but my absolute favorite thing to do is pick up a book. This blog is dedicated to all of my ramblings.
This is the 5th book in the Jane True series. It starts out with Jane on a mission to the UK. She is off to do battle with a supernatural threat. Jane think they will be off Blondie will deal with the problem and it will be like a mini vacation. Easy peasy! Well that would not make a very good story. Turns out Jane is up against the Red and White these ancient elementals who just want to wreak chaos and take over the world. Also turns out this is not Blondie’s fight but Jane’s.
It has been awhile since I read this series and some of the challenges I have with this story came right back. Most of them surround Jane’s libido in a way I want to see how many times the word is in the book but I think that would really annoy me. The other thing that annoys me is the ridiculous number is near sex scenes between Anyan and Jane – really do it or don’t but move on.
The good thing about the book is the unexpected twists which brings about some past characters and we get a few new odd ones to the crew which was cool. What I liked most was Jane’s growth like I said it has been a while so perhaps my memory is faulty but she felt more secure in her role. Add to all of her new powers and the fact she is a champion who has to learn how to wield the ax it made it fun to read. It was also nice that Anyan wanted to woo Jane slowly, to bad Jane’s libido kept popping up.
While I enjoyed the book there was a lot of running around and some of it seemed pointless. I will also say the book ends with a cliff hanger so I am glad I had the next one in my stack.
