Review of "Stakes & Stilettos" (Immortality Bites #4) by Michelle Rowan

Stakes & Stilettos  - Michelle Rowen

This was okay but kinda meh for me compared to last three books.  

 

An overnight read so clearly not a bad book.  Just didn't seem to connect as much.  The main characters stayed in character at least; I think I just wasn't into the plot (or the introduction of newer villains or villainizing of familiar characters).  

 

This did not exactly end on a cliffhanger like other reviews said.  For me it ended at a logical breaking point with the characters resolved to deal wth situations this book came to  after the reveal of big villain and villain's plans (resolving all that is likely what the next — presumably final book — will cover).

 

Not really details or points I can put my finger on -- just not connecting to this one.  Not a lot of happy moments; they never seemed to catch a break beyond still being together.  I don't think I really bought into some of the sudden twists (very meh on some villain motivations that cropped up).
