Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 95
After finishing Shiver, I was very curious how Sam and Grace would come to live their life together, as a full time couple. I was expecting lots and lots of romantic tidbits, but the problems were catching up too fast and Sam was still more floating around in his now permanent human body. And on that note, I had the feeling that it was not as lyrical and magical as Shiver, although there was more actual lyric in it because Sam had his wits on hand all the time. I suspect it was because Isabel and Cole had alot more parts, and those two were definitvely way more practical then romantic, but it got the story forward fast and good. I really hope those two will end up together in book three, because they sure mare one awesome couple. Their own drama brings a new wind into the story, and covers the rather slow process of Sam and Grace a bit.
However slow the suspense arc for Sam and Grace may have seemed, since they are both rather calm characters, they problems sure were hardcore. Suddenly having those kind of problems with her parents was... annoying, but nothing to get you all exciting. Grace's desintegraction, for lack of a better word, on the other hand, was a little weird throughout the read, but came down like a hammer in the end -- a real shock, and that effect deserves alot of credit. Plus, the idea of this kind of twist was amazing! Overall, it sure left a hell of a cliffhanger at the last page, just like in Shiver, and I can't wait to take time to read the last installment, hoping for lots of happy endings, and maybe some cures!
