I liked this, mostly. The POV changes were too much, they changed a lot and even to the POV of secondary characters, which I hate.The mystery was one of the weakest I've ever read. They are on case 14 and each one has had a letter from the same guy and they just now decide maybe they should look into why all of the murders/kidnappings victims have the same letter? Seriously? is that something you should have looked into after the first case? its an investigation don't you interview people, especially ones in recent contact with the victim? (view spoiler)[ then turns out the bad guy kills the parents and sells the kids on the Silver Market because the MC turns him down. So everytime he gets rejected he kills/kidnaps families to hurt the MC who didn't even pay enough attention to know what was going on. He knew his files were being tampered with but didn't care enough to find out why. yeah pretty weak all around(hide spoiler)]i didn't see the connection between these guys, it was like hate you but you're hot to love you you're hot. It was just like huh when did that happen?And the whole Blue Flame thing what was the point of that? it never came into play and it didn't seem to make him a better investigator or anything
***Read as part of the free Don't Read in the Closet: Volume Four anthology. Story #21***
This was fantastic! Crazy good world building in this, it was all very unique and imaginative. I would LOVE to read more with these two or other characters in the same setting. I really enjoyed this, thank you!
This started out ok but lost its focus. The case was never really solved. The relationship building seemed very rushed. It just wasn't very good. Seemed like the author ran out of time and had to wrap everything up quickly. However, the world that she created has potential to be really cool.
Don't Read in the Closet: Volume FourMy Rating System:* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again
Very original world building and clever idea to explain the tattoos! Graven and Hisaki seemed just right together:) Great story, Jen, thank you!!!
Great setting and characters; with the exemption of Gray. Not too sure about the POV or the reasons behind the attacks.
Good world building, however at the end the dialogue is a little stilted and some of the descriptions dont flow well...
