Bones: The pre Cat edition. ( )

Short but sweet, it was interesting to see Bones' perspective on something, even if it's before he met Cat. Getting inside his head was a treat, so I very much enjoyed this novella. ( )

★★★ Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost

So this is my first experience with the NH series by JF. This series comes to me highly recommend, by many people. Not sure how I feel about this one. This is the first novella in the series. The stars are Bones and Becca. This takes place in N.O. around the LaLaurie Mansion. Source: google.com via Jessica on PinterestBones is called in to take care of a couple of ghouls(that are actually based off of true serial killers, Leonard Louis Nicolas and Delphine LaLaurie.) This caught my attention, since I've heard their story many times.
Now for the ghoul part, not sure the what, why, or how. And I was rather disturbed by their tendency to rip off the limbs of the slave/victims, and eat them. Now they didn't seem all that different from the vampires, other than being stronger in daylight, but hopefully, I will get more of a distinction in the next book.
The vampires seem pretty typical, inhuman speed, aversion to silver, arrow to the hurt, and brain washing powers. However, with the proper sunscreen, they can go into sunlight, for short periods of time.
So, overall, it was ok, but I'm not lovin it. Hopefully, the first full story, will get me hooked. ( )
