Crazy For Books

I'm a film/television producer and book scout. I'm always looking for book material to work with. I love film and television as well as reading. The best job in the world is being able to marry the two.

Ticked Me Off.. Ugh!

Behold the Stars (Signal Bend Series) - Susan Fanetti

3 - 3.5 STARS

Isaac and Lilli are together, she's home and healing. But they are still not safe. Lawrence Ellis is gunning for the Night Horde, the town, and people will die. Lilli and Isaac have to find a way to work together, the Night Horde have to learn to trust her instincts and the town must band together if they are going to survive this outside force ready to take them over and into hell.

There's also a traitor in their midst. Isaac knows there's only a few he can trust. When their families are targeted, retribution is exacted resulting in horrible acts of violence, crushing loss of precious life, and Lilli almost is almost physically and mentally broken.

I didn't love this one as much as the previous book. This was tougher to read. But that wasn't why I didn't like it as much. I didn't like what the author did with Lilli. She never listened, she took risks that weren't necessary and with her skills shouldn't have been so lax in her guard or too confident to think she was always doing the right thing. I mean come on...(view spoiler)What the heck was she thinking? I was so pissed I didn't know what to do. That's when it went from a solid 4 down to a 3 to 3.5. I'm still leaning more towards a 3.

Isaac was the only redeeming thing about this book. He was patient and thoughtful. He bent to her insane will and when she was hurting the was comforting and loving.

Going to take a break before moving on to the next book. Maybe I will come back to it. Not sure yet. I just think I the break.
