Don't get me wrong, it's still `new' Ward so it's still all kinds of awesome but Rapture took me over a week to finish with sections where my mind wandered or I just felt like I'd read it all before. There wasn't really anything new here with characters, traits and events that felt rehashed and a little too familiar along with a slow moving storyline and not a whole lot going on in the romance department. I also don't feel like this book moved things forward; in fact I would go as far as to say that Rapture stalled, essentially taking the series nowhere.
Okay now that that's out of the way. Rapture is book 4 in the Fallen Angels series following our angel Jim Heron as he battles the devil in the ultimate endgame of good vs evil. Jim has been chosen (by like GOD himself) to rescue the souls of seven people from one of seven deadly sins. If he fails so does all of humanity, so the stakes are pretty high. Currently he stands at a win of 2 to 1 with events in the last book hitting him hard as Devina (the devil) took out one of his team *sigh* Well and then there's that little issue of him having sex with her, and oh that whole Sissy trapped in hell situation. Anyways.Read more ›
I found that she was focused too much on using her cool slang terms than writing a compelling novel. The characters and their actions really didn't flow well and I didn't feel like I was pulled into the story, as with many other of her books.
Mels seemed to be outlined as smart young woman who could take care of herself, yet "falls in love" within days of meeting Matthias.
Matthias is a broken down version of his former self who can't remember who he was, but miraculously has a complete change of himself and his thinking/ideas.
I didn't finish the book. It really wasn't worth the time or effort to me. Usually I am done JR Ward's books within a day or two, this one I've had it over a week and refuse to read any more.
