Book Review: A Body Displaced
I just finished A Body Displaced and am left frustrated and dissatisfied. The frustration and dissatisfaction took away from what was a really good book
Yes, I know a series of books is meant to be read one after the other but come on! Cliff hangers should be abolished! Disallowed! Banned!
Realistically I know that cliff hangers are meant to bring the reader to the next book in the series and I will definitely be reading the next book, A Soul Displaced, when it is published (Maybe earlier since I volunteered to Beta for him this time around.)
With my grumbling over, for now at any rate, I can say that I enjoyed A Body Displaced a little more than I did A Death Displaced. It could be that I’m getting used to Mr. Butcher’s writing style but it could also be that he knows how to pull us into his stories and place us with his characters in that moment.
I could feel how distraught Nick was over Kerra’s disappearance and how frustrated he was with not being able to help or how upset he was at the police’s line of questioning.
I could feel Juliet’s anger at being duped, how hurt she was by it.
A Body Displaced follows on from A Death Displaced after several months have passed.
Nick is in a steady relationship with a former girlfriend.
Juliet took some time for herself to try to come to terms with her new state of being and to spend some time with her long lost Grandmother.
Things go from humdrum to all out scary and threatening in no time and it all started with the disappearance of Nick’s girlfriend, Kerra.
