Audible Review: Apprentice in Death 


Author: J.D.Robb

Narrator: Susan Ericksen

Series: in death-43

Rating: 5/5

Format: audible 13h 6m

Summary:

Nature versus nurture…

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

MY FANGIRL THOUUGHTS:

This book was like Innocent in Death for it being a minor. Differences it was a father/daughter team and sniper people who did them wrong. Though we find out who they are pretty quickly the hunt was fun. Behind the duo killings have been twisted so that Will could kill as she wants. You would think after over 40 books in these series that it would get boring but it’s not. I love how J.D Robb comes up with the plot, the police work behind it, and the relationships. I love all the characters that Eve has made along the way and how they pretty much became family. There is also so life changing things happening where Eve’s accepting change.

Also I love how in the end it went from all about death to life and happiness. Quick note about the audible it was done by the same lady whose done the rest of the series. Which I loved. A thing I didn’t like about the audible is the fact that I didn’t get the book until three hours after it released. Waiting to listen to this book was annoying.

I still love these books and since I finished this in one day. Now have to wait until 2017 for the next book.

Since I totally forgot about Friday’s read I’ll be doing a weekend instead. So right now am currently reading Vengeance in Death book 6 in the In Death series. Thanks you Overdrive for actual having the next book. Am almost done and loving this book so much. We’re getting more of Roarke’s past and seeing how Eve handles it. This has to be the most they have fought and I love it.

When I finish this which well be sometime today am hoping the next book Holiday in Death is on Overdrive. What can I say I can’t get enough of this series. If it don’t I have a few (6) library books to get through. Especially Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd which I’ve been trying to read for almost two weeks.

REVIEW: Rature in Death


Author: J.D. Robb

Series: In Death #4

Format: paperback

page count: 294

Rating: 4/5

Summary: Four successful people are killing themselves with a smile on their faces. It looked like a self termination, except for the fact to their family and friends say they were happy before. As Eve Dallas and her aid Peabody search a more technology aspect to find the answers.

Rapture in Death is very technology based which means we get some of Feeney, and watching Eve piss off as many people as she can. But hey that’s what comes with being a cop asking the hard questions to get the answers. Especially when all the deaths looked self inflicted. However even though they all come from different backgrounds and jobs they each have a mark that makes them connected. Also it helps that all the death’s didn’t happen in New York but different locations to throw off the connection.

Eve comes from a bad past, however you would never think of it as you watch her kick ass and take names. Eve is always cop first, and though she’s trying to be a wife and friend also you can always see the cop. One flaw I would say is that when someone personally hurts someone she considers a friend or family she become blind. In Rapture and Immortal in Death you see this happen and yet she falls for it instead looking at the evident. So even if she is proved wrong she will dig even if there dead ends.

Also its good to see Roake and Mavis the main to characters who seemed to get Eve some what not cop like. I enjoy reading about Mavis for she is a very colorful character total opposite of Eve but is a great blender. Then there is Roake who can read Eve better than anyone else can dream of. I love the humor and how he counters Eve into doing what he wants and for her own good sometimes.

What else can I say about this series that I haven’t before. I will say how glad I am there isn’t any rerun plots like some long mystery series take. Plus have really interesting characters. Rapture in Death is a mystery with the elements of who done it and why. With a pinch of back and forth for suspects. And a whole lot of Eve being pissed off and kicking butt.

So if you stuck to the end thank you. For this is a big rambling mess that am ending now with a question. Do you think Eve and Summerset will ever get along? If they do later on don’t spoil just leave a winky face to let me know they do later on in the series. thanks for reading until next time.

REVIEW: Immortal In Death


Author: J.D. Robb

Series: In Death #3

Page Count: 10hrs. 16mins / 296

Format: audible/paperback

Publisher: 1996 Berkley

Rating: 5/5

Summary: Top model Pandora was killed and Eve’s best friend is being framed. Now with the death of the model and a new drug that could cause it. Also with her wedding coming soon Eve is a little distracted.

So as the story continued time for fashion and Pandora was the big cheese modeluntil she is found in the home of a designer with her face beaten in. That happened to be where her best friend Mavis boyfriend live. Now Eve with her new aid Peabody have to find answer while getting ready for her wedding. As the story goes on we learn that it’s all about money and a new drug called immortal that is a slow pision. There are plenty of suspects since know one liked Pandora for she is a mean B* and plenty of people would like her dead.

I didn’t see the killer even though I should have however I don’t believe who they thought the first killer was either. 

I went back and forth from audible to book and I may stick to audible. For one reason I love the narrator who does the reading. She makes it more enjoyable and quicker to get through. Also it’s cheeper. I need to save up some money and since this is a 40+ book series. That’s a lot of money that I can’t spend right now. 

So still loving this series and can’t wait to read more of Roake and Eve with there friends of course. 🙂
