Just when you think that this story has given you all the fucked-up-ness that it can give…it gives you a little more, and then…a little.  Bit.  More.  It was one of the craziest books, if not the craziest book that I've ever read. Period.  The only series that even comes close to this is The Dark DuetGun Shy is a different kind of crazy than that.  

 

It was both compelling and repulsive at the same time.  Oddly enough, it did have its sweet moments.  I don't believe I liked how it ended, though…well, at least parts of the ending.

 

Will I read more from this Author?⇜  I don't know, it depends on my mood, I guess.

Foxglove Summer
Foxglove Summer: A Rivers of London Novel - Ben Aaronovitch

by Ben Aaronovitch

 

I've read most of this series and really enjoyed it, though I think this one slowed down a little from the previous books. Peter Grant has a different sort of case. He's helping another department track down two missing girls and it isn't clear at the beginning that his special talents are warranted for the case, although police departments have been known to use the skills of psychics when all else fails. As it happens, a 'weird' aspect to the case does develop.

 

This one was more overtly sexual than previous books as well. Peter's growing relationship with Beverley, the river goddess, has some odd twists and turns but overall seems to be developing into something that might last. Where it could go under the circumstances is open to speculation.

 

The magic has become almost routine now so the initial discovery of arcane skills doesn't have as much room to grow. Believability barriers are also getting nudged a little further than earlier books, but that's inevitable in a series like this.

 

Overall it was an enjoyable read, but I feel like the series is winding down. Having said that, there was an unexpected twist or two near the end. I still haven't got the last book and might not mind waiting a while before I do read it, though I'm sure I will sometime.

Reading progress update: I've read 11%.
Woman No. 17 - Edan Lepucki

I can't even remember the day I started this, but I find it boring as anything. Reading about an unlikable character is a book killer to me. Just making someone nasty does not an interesting narrative make.

Brother by Ania Ahlborn

And the dysfunctional family of the year award goes to the Morrows. On its surface, this story is reminiscent of that of the historical Bloody Benders, but with an even more sinister flavor. Amidst the habitual routine of his life, 19-year-old Michael Morrow does not ask questions. He knows better. However, meeting an attractive girl who shows interest in him changes everything. Sometimes diverging from what is familiar is painful, though, for all of those involved. Ahlborn crafts a deeply disturbing tale interwoven with abuse, murder, and vengeance. “Brother” is not for the faint of heart and contains sexual scenes as well as widespread profanity. Nevertheless, the story keeps the reader turning pages in an eagerness to discover whether there will be a light of redemption in the end.
