This book was a bit more fragmented than the previous one, as required by the plot. I could've done with a bit less shifting of viewpoint, location, and even time; a basically solid story wound up feeling choppier than it should have. All the same, the parts that made the last two books so fun are still present - the triple helping of attitude, Eric fighting way out of his weight class and still coming up on top, Greta being her usual strange mix of cute and monstrous...there's lots of fun here.

As for the bad parts, I have to admit that the whole trip to Paris seemed pretty much unnecessary. Yes, there was fun to be had there, but ultimately it was just a plot device to get Eric out of Void City for most of the book and keep him occupied while he was there. Granted, that permitted some neat things to happen there, including a quite unexpected twist about halfway through the book, but it was more of a diversion than I really wanted. Thankfully, the sequel seems to have Eric squarely back in the Void, and I hope to see good things as a result...especially considering the state this book leaves it in. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In spite of his continuing hot-blooded affair with his soon-to-be-sister-in-law Rachel, Eric's plan is simple: Give his vampire girlfriend Tabitha the fancy wedding she's always wanted, then head off to Paris for their honeymoon in the hopes of tracking down his sire, the Empress vampire Lisette. The City of Love proves anything but romantic when the True Immortal rulers of Europe try to block Eric from entering the Continent--and subject Tabitha to a series of challenges to prove her vampire worth. Back home in Void City, Eric's volatile daughter Greta is getting lonely and bored--and that's not good news for anyone. And when, like a bat out of hell, Lisette descends upon Void City to wipe Eric and his brood off the face of the earth--forever--this much is clear: the honeymoon is over."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
