Despite her having saved Chicago from a vampire invasion, the Agency wants to get Maddy off their payroll—permanently. With the deadly Retrievers hot on her trail, she has no choice but to trust Nathaniel to port her to safety. But even the exotic and dangerous world that she winds up in is not as peaceful as she would have hoped. Caught in a turf war between a group of fae and a disturbingly familiar foe, Maddy soon discovers that the twisted plots of her grandfather, Lucifer, and his brothers extend even into this unknown realm.
Now, with enemies gathering on all sides, Maddy’s fate is looking darker than ever. And to protect her unborn son from her adversaries, she may have to tap into a power she hoped never to access…
This was my seventh James Patterson’s book and I would say he writes better when he is not co-authoring. There were times when I read his Alex Cross‘ series or Women’s Mystery Club series and when I read his Private series or the Mistress. The difference would be in front of you. The difference is like between the day and the night. This fact may be true that he has sold more than combining Stephen King, Dan Brown and John Grisham, also, 19 consecutive No. 1 New York Times bestselling novels, and holds The New York Times record for most bestselling hardcover fiction titles by a single author but books like Mistress, it feels gone are those days when James Patterson was a real Page turner. It is just not his class or I would say, it’s not him. It’s a disgrace the way his books are written nowadays. Mistress being lengthy novel of 448 pages, the plot and the story are acceptable however the way of telling the story, the way of portraying the first person narrative was not good at all. Actually it was pretty bad, no reader would like to read the way this book is written.
In the past, I have always enjoyed Patterson’s books immensely. I used to like his style of short chapters and page turning essence his books had but now it seem, What the hell am I reading? It’s better if I read my textbooks.
After reading 100 pages you would realize that the main character of the book, Ben, might be an interesting character in this psychological thriller but reading further you will realize that before you just had a bad thought. Though I agree, it’s a fast read but I had to force myself to finish it. The character of Ben often goes on and on about mundane facts which have nothing to do at all with the story-line. And due to this he is an annoying character. I am disappointed with this one. Looks like, I’ll have to go back to Alex Cross or Women’s Mystery Club.
I would advise not to buy and waste your money. Either loan it from a library or borrow from the person who has it.
I won’t recommend this one to anyone, and if I do… Dear Devil, I shall rot in hell.
