I’ve been waiting for this book to come out for ages. Months. Years, even. The release date kept moving, and I (and I’m sure many other readers) kept waiting … and then, finally, it appeared.
This may not have been my favourite of the Dexter novels, but it was fairly high up there. I think I listened to the entire book in the span of a few days. It was a little less predictable than I had been expecting, and I kept wanting to know what would come next.
I read this one immediately after Dexter by Design, but didn’t review it right away. I wasn’t really sure how I felt about it – I mean, I loved it, but it was so much different from the other books in the series that I didn’t really know how to talk about it without giving too much away.
This volume brought the series back to somewhere that I really enjoyed – there was less of the supernatural going on, and more plain-ol’-fun hacking-and-slashing going on.
In many ways, this was my least favourite of the series so far. It just didn’t have the same feel and pizazz as Dearly Devoted Dexter, and I found myself slogging through it at many points.
