I’m in the grips of THE DEATH FLU and in the middle of a freelance project, but I wanted to post this review anyway. It counts toward my 2013 UTC Immortal Reading Challenge — I’m putting it under Demons/Angels, since I’m sort of lacking in that territory. Loved this book!
I admit, I’m a sucker for omnibus and fictional reference books for my favorite series. I have one for Anne Rice, one for Diana Gabaldon… anytime my beloved universes come out with a Uber-Meta-Guide, I am SO there.
Well, my Goddess Kim and her crew have outdone themselves with this one! It’s so much fun I could hardly wait to pick it up whenever I got a chance. The format is great — letters, memos, a scrapbook style collection of newspaper clippings, top secret files. Best of all, the collection doesn’t just trace around the edges of the stories we’ve all read in the novels and give some depth and reference to those, it builds its OWN story that sheds some interesting light on Trent Kalamack’s behind-the-scenes actions since the beginning of the series.
If you’re a fan of The Hollows, this is a blast and not to be missed!
Oh, also? The dust cover GLOWS IN THE DARK. Come on, how cool is that?
