Review: The Final Seven by Erica Spindler
The Final Seven
The Lightkeepers #1
The first Saturday in July...
A missing coed...
The number seven carved into her door...
The countdown has begun.
New Orleans Detective Micki Dee Dare is a seasoned, no-nonsense cop. She doesn't need a partner, especially not Zach “Hollywood” Harris, an irreverent charmer, fresh out of an experimental FBI program. And her assignment — keep him alive while he fights crime using the special skills he brings to the table — is not what she signed up for. But the die has been cast and there's nothing she can do about it.
Micki soon realizes there's more to her partner than meets the eye—and more at stake than catching bad guys and closing cases. There’s a new kind of evil at work the Crescent City, more cunning, more powerful than any she’s ever encountered. And she and Zach may be the only ones who can stop it.
As another coed goes missing and the darkness closes in, Micki must face a terrifying truth: this time she might not make it. This time the evil they’re facing might destroy them all...
I don't know if it's been because of the holiday's or what but I've been having a ton of trouble getting into anything. Most of December I couldn't read. In fact, the only books I did read are the ones for reviews. It's not like I didn't like them, because I did, it's just that after I finished them instead of rushing into the next book, I sat looking into space instead.
This did not bond well for one of my favorite authors.
It's seems like forever that I've been reading Spindler. I started reading her when she wrote romance and followed her over when she got into suspense. I know...that doesn't sound like me because I only read romance. Here's the thing, Spindler puts enough romantic elements in her stories that I get what I need from them along with a great story.
With The Final Seven I was given a good suspense story, a romantic element and also a paranormal element too! Talk about happy dance. Of course, I still had that issue about getting into anything. So I started the book and....
Right off the bat I found myself lost in the story. It made me want to know more about the characters and what the story was about. I almost couldn't contain my happiness. Right away I loved Micki. She's tough as nails but yet, likable.
I had a harder time both liking and figuring out Zach. At times he pissed me off. I didn't always like how he treated Micki. I know, you want more info...sorry. You'll have to read the book for more. As the book progressed I found myself liking how Zach grew up. It's wasn't all about him...he started to think of others.
This is a wonderful start to a new series. I can't wait to see what comes next. A ton of things happen within the story and you learn so much, but at the same time the author leaves you wondering what's next.
If you've read The Final Seven or any other book by Erica Spindler I'd lover to hear your thoughts. For those of you looking to order it don't forget the release day is 2/11. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
