Author ~ Carolyn Crane
Ever pick up a book and just think, “Wow, does this book sound…odd” But you figure, what the heck, you need something different, and this sure sounds like it fits the bill. Not only is the book odd, but it’s weird in the most fantastic way possible, it was an extremely interesting, well thought out, and twisty read! Author Carolyn Crane has some serious issues I tell you. In order to come up with this psychological hit squad, and this world filled with mind bendingly awesome characters, she has to be half off her rocker I tell you! I jest. OK maybe not. I don’t know her in real life, but the Disillusionist Series is just plain old awesomesauce!!!. Did you know that if you were a hypochondriac and thought you were going to die of a brain star, and every day you pretty much end up in the ER with symptoms of impending doom, that you could work for Packard, the um Hero of our story, and you can “fix” the bad people in the world, by injecting your paranoia into another person? Leaving yourself feeling euphoric, and the zingee feeling your craziness? Well, you can! Sound weird? It is! But it’s sooooo cool! You have got to read this Urban Fantasy series. It will make you think, and it will make your heart pound, and it will fill your brain with mush. Just sit back and enjoy seriously crazy people, and in time, you will feel like you are the sanest person alive =)
Now the second book in this jaw dropping series was a freaking killer! What a great book. It had me frantically turning pages, and then I get to the end of the novel and my lips hit the floor, and I screamed NOOOOOOOO!! Oh my God NOOOOO!!! Holy crap I can’t believe Carolyn Crane went there! And in such a huge way! Oh, the cliffhangers!! No, nonnononononono!!!!
Yup, that pretty much sums up the second book in this freaktastic series. No-one is who they seem, nothing is as it seems and my brain hurt. In a good way.
I got my mom hooked on this series too, she called me after she was done the second novel and was all “What the fuck Erika?, What have you turned me onto? What a crazy ride!” then we proceeded to rehash the entire story ARC, and then got down to business talking about all the craziness of zinging. Also, what we would like to zing into other people. It was a hoot.
If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy, and coolness, with freaky characters and interesting plotting, then pick up this series, you won’t be sorry!
