    1. This is the 3rd full novel in the Lawson series and it is not a standalone entry. Many events from the first two novels are referenced and only minimally explained. And the vampire culture that Merz embraces was explained in the first novel and is only barely referenced in succeeding entries. It is simply assumed that the reader has absorbed the salient facts and is keeping up.The story arc revolves around a female lycanthrope assassin who is rumored to be in Boston to kill the head of the vampi [...]


    2. Stephen King is a storyteller. To me his characters seem secondary to their action and their circumstances. His characters, for the most part, are somewhat flat. He draws you in and tells you a tale, then sets you free. There's nothing wrong with that. Stephenie Meyer (Go ahead; roll your eyes; get it over with.) does the opposite. She develops a character then asks you to follow her through a frivolous but enjoyable adventure. There's nothing wrong with that either.Jon Merz does both but neithe [...]


    3. I have been enjoying the Lawson vampire series very much, I love the humor, the kick ass hero, the conspiracy plot (with the supernatural object about to bring death and destruction) . It's like watching a really good adventure movie. This book, however, was not the best one I've read, which is why I gave it only 3 stars rather than the usual 4. That isn't to say it isn't a good read, just that I liked the other ones better. That sometimes happens in a series, sometimes the formula just doesn't [...]


    4. Okay, I have decided -- I do like this Lawson. I also liked this book better than any other in the series thus far (I am reading them in order). I don't know whether the writing improved or whether the character developed better, but I just feel good about reading this book. Lawson is still kinda a dork always talking about his ninja moves, but it was interesting to see him in a genuine moral dilemma (the prior book had a moral choice, but, hello, you always take the side of the little kid), tak [...]


    5. This is another good book in the series. So far I'm not disappointed and I like that Lycanthropes were introduced, also with a unique spin similar to the way that Vampires are unique in the series. Maybe it's that uniqueness that keeps me reading. They definitely aren't the normal nocturnal blood suckers you would see in other books. I know that sooner or later I'll end up getting and reading the next book in the series as well. Might as well keep going as long as they stay affordable ($3.99 for [...]
