On-the-run ex-agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in this second highly-anticipated installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison’s new suspense trilogy, The Peri Reed Chronicles.
Peri Reed’s job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing.
Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency who turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who’d use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to remain broken and vulnerable, or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will—for whoever holds her next fix, will hold her loyalty.
Yet even now as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.
I started out liked the book better than the first, but after like 25% into the book I was not so sure anymore.
And to be honest even now after finishing it I’m still not sure what my feelings are about the book and the series.
The characters are a lot more in depth this book, more background more understanding to them. Except Peri. Sadly I had a really hard time with Peri. There is something about her that I cannot connect to and or relate to.
Buy I can’t really put my finger on what it is, that I don’t like about her. I hope I figure it out soon. Maybe it is her over confidence that I don’t like. I’m really not sure what it is.
We get more into her world and get a better understanding as she is on the run. But she keeps getting caught, escapes just to get caught again ….or so it seemed.
The story moves on but really sometimes it seemed it didn’t and we move in circles. Other times it was confusing and hard to follow when you get to think “didn’t we just do that?”
It also seemed there were a few pages fillers that were unnecessary full of attempted romance and or repeated things, or just plain silly over descriptive things to fill a page.
It really pains me saying this and being a fan Kim Harrison’s prior books and series, but I don’t think I will be continue this series of hers. I rather wait and try something else by her.
Overall, I thought it seemed long and sometimes boring with a main character that I still failed to connect with.
I sadly will have to rate it at 2★ for me.
