    The first in the paranormal romantic fantasy series Deadworld set in modern day ChicagoMy TakeJackie and the FBI seem cool with it but we never do learn just why such a conservative outfit like the FBI has allowed a gay psychic on the team and appears to take Laurel seriously There's no background given at all for thisFor the most part the dialogue ran true I did like the character of Jackie for the most part; she is such a drama ueen Not w

    This was a gritty and sometimes difficult readbut well worth the emotional investment The characters in this book are interesting flawed certainly not warm and cuddly but they settle into your bones and MATTER in a way that keeps you readingThanks to JN Duncan for making the harder choices when it comes to the fate of his characters I am so tired of there being no conseuences to lifeand death Laurel and Jackie's relationship could have gon

    I'd give it a 45 and trust me I don't give out 45 or 5 often I'm too darn pickyIt's a good beginning to a new urban fantasy series Yes the main female FBI agent is often abrasive and hard edged but as the story progresses we learn what in her own backgroundher own fears made her that way While some might find her attitudes and actions problematic I found her realistic and hoped to see her change over the cour

deadworld

Ing nightmares are made of Brutally exsanguinated human victims vanishing into the ether evidence and a city on the edge of panic mean that she and her psychic partner Laurel are going to need than just backup So Jackie is fine with any help rugged PI Nick Anderson can give When I sat down to read Deadworld I truthfully didn t expect to like it Urban Fantasy is not my usual reading genre I hate cop stories vampires graphic sex etc etc etc In all honesty there was really no reason for me to buy this book but since I had connected with the author through Twitter I wanted to support himA lot of different readers have had varied opinions on Deadworld ranging from hating it to loving it and everything in between all for various and conflicting reasons Some say the plot was gripping while the characters were lackluster Some say the writing is monotonous and disagreeable Others say the exact oppositeJackie is hard to like at the beginning of the story She s tough vindictive impatient and excessively angry at pretty much everything Laurel her psychic partner is Jackie s suishy counterpart sweet controlled and kind They apply the bad cop good cop roles in the story I loved Laurel from the very beginning My inability to connect with Jackie because of her personality was rectified with Laurel The hero Nick suspect in Jackie s case is a calm collected vampire one that I like The author did a good job taking the usual vampire stereotypes and turning them on their head without losing the essence of vampirism While some readers claim the characters lack depth I came to love the main characters even Jackie The author s characterization was phenomenal I haven t been that emotionally invested in a group of book characters in a really long time I felt their pain happiness and anger right along with them I actually cried at one point The characters are what made the story for meAs I said in the first bit there s a lot of graphic romance or mentions of it One particular scene was painful to read not because it was badly written but just because of all the emotional baggage that went into it I just felt bad for Jackie That said a decent romance blooms between Jackie and Nick one where she s sober and not reliving her abusive past so that was niceAs far as the plot goes it was so so The pacing was great for me possibly slow for others and the author put cliffhangers in the proper spots I kept telling myself one chapter for about thirty chapters while reading one night I didn t find myself really caring about the plot itself I was involved with the characters The bodies are piling up and both Nick and Jackie want to stop the killer Nick s personally involved and it s Jackie s job to catch the villain I didn t find the villain particularly threatening but he is deplorableThe supernatural aspect isn t overwhelming as it is in most paranormal or urban fantasy stories Even with vampires ghosts psychics and the world of the dead it felt like the world we live in with just a little bit extra The supernatural was a backdrop for the story rather than the story focusing on the supernatural bits I liked thatAll in all I really enjoyed Deadworld so than I expected to It was a complete story for me with no real uestions hanging over my head I don t know if I ll read the seuel The Vengeful Dead when it comes out in October The cover does look fantastic though

She’s as tough as anything haunting Chicago’s streets But to deal with an inhuman power that won’t stay buried this FBI agent needs help that comes at an immortal priceJackie Rutledge has seen her share of supernatural killers But her latest murder case is what recurr Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyJackie Rutledge made a bad first impression on me which didn t improve over time Chapter one opens with Jackie arriving on a murder scene where a little boy has been discarded like trash in a park and her response is all about her hangover She absently rubbed at her throbbing temple There should be laws against committing crimes on Mondays Why can t killers keep better hours I don t care how tough and jaded she is after years with the FBI that s never the kind of response someone should have at seeing a dead kid And sadly Jackie was just the first in a string of uninteresting unsympathetic characters Jackie and her partner Laurel wanted to come across as the next Rizzoli and Isles Jackie as the tough cop and Laurel as the softer influence in her life Not so much Laurel barely registers and Jackie was obnoxiously hard nosed Predictably she had an abusive childhood that turned her into a promiscuous man hater She gets drunk and goes home with strangers most nights One night in specific triggers a flashback while in the middle of rough sex The situation was seedy to begin with as she s begging some guy to hurt her but then she reverts back to a horrific episode from her childhood and it got ugly enough that I almost stopped reading I kept going only so I could write this review That scene and character aside the writing was eually lackluster Redundant and overly tedious are the words that come to mind This book should have been half this length At 400 pages it came across as bloated with a sluggish pace that did nothing for its rather flimsy plot Overall I really wanted to like this book The description sounded like it might be the next great police procedural urban fantasy with a dash of romance but DEADWORLD failed on just about every level for me Unlikeable characters weak yet overly eager writing poor pacing and a plot that wasn t nearly strong enough to support a book of this size Not even the ghosts and vampires could redeem this one for me I reserve my one bat rating for books that I find offensively bad Since DEADWORLD only ualifies as not good it scrapes out a 2 bat rating Barely The next Deadworld book THE VENGEFUL DEAD will be published in October 2011Sexual Content References to homosexuality rape An BDSM sex
