Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades Trilogy #3) by E L James

I'm really shocked by the popularity of this series but especially this book. It is definitely the worst of the bunch. Poor character development, weak story line and dreadfully boring sex scenes. At least I can say I read all three?

Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5) by Ilona Andrews
Magic Slays (Kate Daniels #5)

Jessica Hohenstein, January 1, 2012

This is the most recent book in a series written by a husband and wife team. I was hesitant about reading a book written by a duo but so far it only seems to make the text richer. It's part paranormal romance, part fantasy and part sci-fi. Yes, it is another bit of escapism but one that is well executed and inventive. I don’t want to say too much about this book because it will spoil the ones ahead of it. The series follows many well-developed characters as their lives unfold in the midst of a world overtaken by battling magic and tech waves. Oh, and of course there are vampires (the scary kind), wereanimals, witches, gods, and creatures yet to be determined. I’m having difficulties writing about the book because I can’t focus on it without explaining the entire series and it is a very rich series. Just read the series! It’s great and Magic Slays is the best yet.
