Book Review: Jekyll: An Urban Fantasy
Three stars 😦
Jekyll: An Urban fantasy is the continuation of Hyde: An Urban Fantasy.
I enjoyed the book but it was more of the same I’ve been trying to get away from: A naive young woman does everything in her power to not discuss things with the person she wants as her partner and does so in spectacular upheaval fashion, yet she berates him for doing the same thing. To be fair the man she loves does the same thing, just not nearly as often nor does he have the same spectacularly ridiculous results.
This would be a refreshing read if the same plot devices I’ve read far too many times in the last couple of years weren’t used ad nauseum.
I enjoyed the characters; particularly Landon. He IS refreshing. A former police detective with his own agenda which happens to align quite well with Mitch and Eve’s goals although his role is far, far from the usual using his contacts to further those goals. Landon gets five stars all on his own! I would enjoy seeing where Ms. Stewart could take his character if she were to decide to continue the Hyde series.
Justin is just a small bit in this story but he’s the only one who gets to be naive since he’s only 16.
Alex: how DO doctors and scientists manage to get mixed up with evil geniuses anyway?
There were times I wished to toss the book across the room simply because I got tired of reading the same thing over and over again when I knew other books were waiting to be read
