Review: Trance by Kelly Meding

Review: Trance by Kelly Meding

Posted August 23, 2012 by Jennifer in Book Review | 3 Comments

  Kelly Meding knows how to write an action packed story. I love her Dreg City Series and thought I should give her Meta War series a try. And I’m glad I did. Fans of her Dreg City series will most likely enjoy Trance but even though it’s an urban fantasy book it’s not nearly as dark as Evie’s world. Meding is an author that’s not afraid to kill a few of her characters. And I like that about her. No one is safe in her worlds. That’s life, no of us get out of it alive and Meding uses that in her writing. You will not get a world with pretty rainbows and flowers. So if that’s the kind of read you’re looking for […]

***If you are not update on the series there will be some spoilers in this review.*** As much as I love this series I had a bit of trouble getting into Biting Cold. I was over the Mallory story before it even got started. I was having Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) flashbacks but minus the fact that Mallory didn’t flay someone. But I’m sure had she been given the time she would have. Another thing that put me off some was the fact that it took Merit and Ethan so long to have a true reunion. After all the heartache that Merit went through those months that Ethan was gone, and how he must have missed her. Yeah ok so they had an evil […]
