"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." - Oscar Wilde
4.5 stars for Whyborne and Griffin
The third book in the series brings us to a place where I personally never wanted to go - the asylum. And it was bad, reading about the pain and memories Griffin has to go through, the awful things he is forced to rememeber while investigating a murder. But I loved reading about the love and support continuing to grow between Whyborne and Griffin. I do have to admit though that the dise-characters (except for Christin of course) distracted me a little. I was particularly not fond of Griffin's parents. But that had more than one reason, so I'll chalk it up to personal issues. Also, Whyborne's father and brother are way beyond words for me. A-holes, both of them. Put them both into a bag and beat it with a stick - you'll always get the right one.
One thing I always have while reading books in this series, is a tiny little well of dread in the pit of my stomach. Because I'm always wondering what on earth Jordan L. Hawk will spring on these two guys this time. Her creatures and villains are never just your average bad guys and monsters. They are evil, they are nasty, and they make me shudder every damn time. But it's still good to read, and I always end up enjoying her mysteries, the connections between everything and everyone, but most of all the love and devotion growing between Whyborne and Griffin. It's a pleasure reading about their lifes and their adventures and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
