    I can't believe I waited this long for nothing. KGI had been my favorite series by any author until now... one rotten apple spoils the whole barrel. I get the sense that Ms. Banks had to throw this one together to meet a deadline and put in very little effort. The story is flat and lacks imagination. The only thing that could save this book would be a complete rewrite.
  • Not worth the price tag

    I hate to write negative reviews so this is rare for me. The few parts of this book that were about the main characters were okay-at least it started okay. After the heroine was rescued there was no explanation of what happened to the bad guys nor did it resolve anything about her mysterious background. The book was very repetitive- huge rehashes of past books included to fill pages. There was a lot of the same going on in the characters thoughts. They just argued with themselves about the same thing over and over. This particular heroine was very forgettable compared to others in the series. And so was the instalove with Joe. It didn't have enough meat to it. I worry about Rusty and Sean's book.

    I am a fan of this series and this author, but this book was very disappointing. Nothing interesting happened until half way through the book. The common instantaneous falling in love plot was particularly hard to believe in this story. Joe deserved a better story and I know Ms. Banks can write write a better one too.
