The Ghosts Of Bourbon Street
The Ghosts of Bourbon Street - Seanan McGuire

After Half-Off Ragnarok, this short story continues Verity's and Dominic's story as they travel across the country in order to meet up with Verity's parents. On the way they will meet some more members of the extended family.

It was a nice story. I was wondering what would happen to the characters, after the events in the second book and with the switch to Alex, I was afraid that it would take a time to find this out. The story itself was not that special, but I read somewhere that there are references to another of Seanan McGuire's series that I haven't read. I can imagine I would have really enjoyed those, if I had gotten them.

Ghosts of Bourbon Street
Ghosts of Bourbon Street - Rowan Speedwell This was quite awful.

I felt no connection to the characters, the story is highly unlikely and I know this is 44 pages book, but what happened to quality over quantity?? I mean, 3 sex scenes in 2 pages is way too much. They were terrible. These guys went from casual acquaintances to shared orgasms in one page.

Compared to the other story stories, this one felt like the weakest of the bunch so far in terms of characters and plot...this makes me sad... :/

There's a new character in town...
The Ghosts of Bourbon Street - 'Seanan McGuire'

(Best read after Half-Off Ragnarok.)

 

Okay... so after having just finished this short, I finally realized why the previous book (Half-Off Ragnarok) didn't catch my interest, as these volumes normally do.

 

Plainly speaking, Alex is a complete bore when compared with his younger sister Verity. lol

He's a cute bore, but in the end he's the geek scientist with a baggage full of cryptid info, who may well bring the old expression "Bored to death", alive!

 

 Then there's also the fact, that this short has almost as much action in it, as "Half-Off..." had, being this last one a full length book.

 

Due to its small number of pages, there was no info dump, regarding the Cryptid various species, which allowed for a more interesting, and fast read.

 

In a pretence of showing us what Verity and Dominic are up to in their road trip, we are given instead an introduction to a new series, that features a ghost, as it's main character.

 

Yes, that's right, Rose Marshall, the leading character of a new book series, Sparrow Hill Road, makes an appearance and consequently steals the spotlight out from her niece _Verity.

 

Verity has decided to take _let's call it _ "baby steps" when it comes with introducing her boyfriend, Dominic, _the ex Covenant operative_ to her quirky, and dangerous _ Price_ family. 

So, who better to start with... than her "dear auntie" Rose?

Who cares if she's dead? 

She's still family.

 

Rose may be a ghost but she's more lively than some living people, and soon Verity and Dominic find themselves entangled in the business' of the dead.

Who said that the living gets to have all the fun?

 

p.s. Of course this means that now, I am going have to place the other book I had started on hold, and instead start with Sparrow Hill Road, because it seems to be that good!

Look for it's review in the next few days ;)
