Everytime I see the title I say it in a dramatic voice. Like imagine the narrator of the primetime soap opera or something. Put the emphasis on Duke.
Anyway yes I have finished it! I really, really liked it. I didn’t love it but I really enjoyed this book you guys. It isn’t my favorite of Hoyt’s work but I think it’s a good entry on her bibliography. Anyway enough of that and on to the review.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Haha once again the subplot of the previous book gives a clue to who the hero and heroine will be in the next book. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!
Finished on Oct. 25, 2013
Okay! So I was really excited about this book. I read the previous book about a week or so ago into preparation for this one. Honestly I wasn’t expecting to actually be able to read it until around the end of the moment. But I won it!
This book…I really enjoyed it. Of course when I read the blurb I immediately thought…it’s the goddamn Batman!
Maximus does seem to have a lot in common with the Bat guy. He fights crime by night and by day he’s a powerful duke…okay not completely but you get the general idea.
Artemis…I really liked her. She’s…I’m trying to find the right words to describe her. She’s first shown as unobtrusive. You aren’t likely to notice her but I like that she is confident in herself. I mean being in her position I don’t think I would be as confident and self assured as I read her to be. She’s sure about her brother. She decides what she wants even though she knows it can only hurt her. I really liked her.
The mystery? Well I thought that the murderer was going to be someone else but it turned to be someone completely different. I guess it kinda came out of left field. I mean I feel like it would have been a complete twist if it was someone else. Lol I mean I just thought it was the assuming person at first but it wasn’t which is a tad bit sad. That would have been awesome.
So how do I rate this? I really enjoyed the book but it’s not in the LOVE it category either. But I did stay up to finish it which hasn’t happened in a long, long time. So I think I can safely rate it 4 stars. Very intriguing but doesn’t quite has that bang.
