Alternate History | Urban Fantasy
While I’m really enjoying this series, I felt like A Longer Fall was VERY SLOW. It took me quite a while to read this one and while I WAS interested in all the action that was happening, I have to admit much of it dragged for me. Am I shocked? Not really. Her books, while being favorites of mine, always manage to either excite me to the fullest or make me feel indifferent. This book falls in the latter.
So on with the story. In the latest installment of the Gunnie Rose series we find that Lizabeth is once again fighting for her life. After a train derailment and a missing trunk (that may or may not hold Holy remains) Lizabeth finds herself in a predicament that could cost her and those she holds dearly, life. Remember Eli from the first book? Well, he’s back as well! He and Lizabeth must work together before the town of Dixie turns into a chaotic mess. Gun fights, magic, and so much more ensues and readers are taken on another fantastical adventure! Even though I personally found the book to drag in some areas, there is a TON of action within this one and Charlaine writes it in an exciting way. So, if you like your books with a ton of it you won’t want to miss this one.
The ending of A Longer Fall felt a bit unsettled and I hope Charlaine has plans to continue the series as I have many questions. I know many readers will feel the same.
Will I continue this series? You bet! This one may not have been my favorite, but it WAS GOOD. Plus, I’m a diehard Harris fan and will read anything she writes!
