1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed..., Sept. 12 2005
This review is from: Derik's Bane (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a fan of Davidson after reading her Queen of the Undead books, and I was expecting a book on par with those. Unfortunately, the plot, while one would expect it to be rather exciting, felt more like a prologue. I kept wondering when I'd get to the real story! I finished the book and had that sinking "that's it?" feeling. I felt cheated. It was a good idea, but it never managed to engage me the way I expected. The only reason I kept reading was that I expected it to get better, to live up to my expectations. I should have given up and not wasted my time. Maybe the problem was that she centered on a man as opposed to her usual focus on a woman. I don't know. All I know is that, unlike her Vampire Queen books, I will never reread this book, and heartily regret paying any money for it at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Light Snack, March 4 2005

This review is from: Derik's Bane (Mass Market Paperback)
This book while enjoyable due to Ms. Davidson's usual snappy humour (love the Undead series!) was a little too "light" for my tastes. The characters seemed undeveloped and the story a little too trite with no depth. It felt like a short story that got S T R E T C H E D into novel form. If your looking for an easy read about werewolves, soceresses, reincarnation, and rather incompetent cults this is the one for you.
