Fernando tried to make a break for it but he was outmanned.
Do you remember when it was such a big deal that Anita and her gang tried to get Fernando and it was so hard? Well, he’s taken out in one sentence. Him and Liv are lead off to face pack justice, and that’s the end of the big ole villains.
(Kudos to sokudoningyou for this. My followers are the best.)
Yvette then comes in and says that her master, Morte d’Amour thinks JC is trying to make a new Vampire Council in the US. Yeah, whatever. JC isn’t capable of organising a jumble sale, let alone a governmental organisation. She suggests executing JC, which I am all for. Padma and the Traveler says they have to vote on it, like a good democracy, and this makes Yvette reveal she has been working with Harry the bartender to mastermind the arson attacks.
for no godamned reason.
the arson attacks did NOTHING in this book. They had no effect on anything!
Yvette wants to go back to the way things were, so now everyone is pro-vampire following the terrorist attacks, she can have a bloody revenger and make everyone hate vampires, as this is a plan that makes sense.
nope. nope. it makes no sense AT ALL.
Yvette tries to get Asher to attack JC but Anita’s seduction means he has no hatred left in him.
“There must be an alchemy in you that I do not see, Anita. You bewitch every vampire that comes near you and every shapeshifter.”
Pointing out the contrivances in your writing doesn’t excuse them.
Warrick is then revealed as a pyrokinetic and it takes two pages for Anita to realise. The fires were supposed to incriminate JC –
but Warrick isn’t setting any more of them. He’s now a master vampire and will no more desire Yvette’s ‘white flesh’. Her power vanishes and Warrick sets her on fire. Everyone stands around and watches Yvette burn.
I think I can compose a song about this book and how it ties up the vampire council and arson subplots….
pointless, pointless. pointless, pointlesss…….
