Sometimes, it takes a villain to do a hero’s job…
Mauler is missing, presumed dead.
Although Caprice is certain the cheery werewolf has shuffled off the mortal coil, his vampire partner Adira insists he’s alive, lost in the forest which came alive around them and swallowed him whole. Their investigation into his disappearance awakens a force which was best left slumbering: Pangea.
When Pangea threatens her beloved city, the villainess Capricious Whim bursts into action, doing everything within her considerable power to turn the threat back… including working with the heroes. Amidst the push and pull of her many working partnerships, Caprice struggles with her enemies, her allies, and herself to organize the biggest strike force Imperial City has ever seen, but will it be enough?
This novel is for mature readers only and contains explicit descriptions of violence and sexual situations. It is dark fantasy/science-fiction centering on a villain as the protagonist and is not for the faint of heart!
This was good, but I’m still left with a TON of questions. The Knight of Disks really only answered one question for me…. Rory.
Caprice is still a badass and has a lot of personal growth. She is making friends but still reminding them who she is at her core. Although, I think she is a hero trapped in a villains body. LOL! Caprice would totally gut me for saying that.
So, this story took a left turn for me. It was good and exciting and had a lot of action, but it seemed like the story got a mind of its own and it was difficult to figure out where to go. I’m talking about the Green Meanie, Pangea.
The story was all about her. Pangea this and Pangea that. Here a Pangea, there a Pangea, everywhere a Pangea. This bitch was literally everywhere and was… well… a bit underwhelming. I wanted to know more about Caprice and what is locked away in her head. I feel that we are even further away from unlocking the mystery that is Caprice.
I guess I’ll have to wait for that. Anyway, Caprice the Villain makes a deal with a White Hat to save her city. Ahem… hero…. Well, she rallies the other villains for a once in a life time deal that is very difficult to pass up. The catch, you have to battle Pangea and you have to trust that the White Hats wont fuck you over.
There was this guy, named Lethal, (I think) and he made me laugh. He wasn’t in the story too much, but some of the stuff he said made me giggle a little.
“God damn fucking puke fuckers making me come to this stupid dark shitty plant cave, he grumbled to all of us. What in the shitty ass hell was I thinking about? Going to get cock smoked here by these doorknob fucking shit gobblers, I just know it. Fuck me through a rotating pastry with a chainsaw! All of them are asshole tuna queens! Why did I ever….”
There was some sex in the book, but not a lot. And to be honest… I’m happy about that. I’ve personally been in a book funk and I really enjoyed the action/adventure of the story rather than the sexy side. But the sex that’s in here, is really great. 🙂
For me… the ending was anticlimactic. I was really expecting a lot more. Maybe that’s the book funk still lingering, I dont know.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. This author is an instant buy for me. She is great with world building and I really enjoy every trip I have taken into her twisted mind.
