What a hot mess, and a disappointing end to a series I really enjoyed Definitely picked up in the last quarter of the book but wow, far too much rambling and meandering on Tess part I get that there s supposed to be character development but IMHO far too much of this one if it really and truly is the end of this series, I still am sorry to see it go was Tess soul searching I don t know what else to call it Rambling dreams Labyrinthine visions The internal soliloquy definitely ran What a hot mess, and a disappointing end to a series I really enjoyed Definitely picked up in the last quarter of the book but wow, far too much rambling and meandering on Tess part I get that there s supposed to be character development but IMHO far too much of this one if it really and truly is the end of this series, I still am sorry to see it go was Tess soul searching I don t know what else to call it Rambling dreams Labyrinthine visions The internal soliloquy definitely ran on waaaaaay too long In the end, the series got neatly wrapped up I could have done withexpository on that, rather than the tortuous self examination on Tess part Just saying Woof, I made it I wasn t sure that I would, as this novel started out normally and devolved into a stream of consciousness mess I was seriously motivated to keep going, though, because I read the rest of the series and this is the last book in it So I pushed on through, got to a bit of light in the tunnel, and then there wasmuck Really, Mr Battis this is a popular work Or did you just feel like, Hey, this is the end of my contract, I can do whatever I want That s the feeling I Woof, I made it I wasn t sure that I would, as this novel started out normally and devolved into a stream of consciousness mess I was seriously motivated to keep going, though, because I read the rest of the series and this is the last book in it So I pushed on through, got to a bit of light in the tunnel, and then there wasmuck Really, Mr Battis this is a popular work Or did you just feel like, Hey, this is the end of my contract, I can do whatever I want That s the feeling I got, honestly It doesn t motivate me to pick up whatever Battis publishes in the future A four star book spoiled by weird, confusing and inconsistent tone for Tess. I ended up skipping chunks of this book because it was just so awful There wasn t much plot and at times the author just went off into these long stream of consciousness ramblings. It s like this book was written by a completely different person to the other 4 This was such a disjointed finish to the series The whole book was just a stream of consciousness that made little to no sense. {Free Epub} ⚣ Bleeding Out å From the author of Infernal Affairs comes a story of murder mayhem, and demon relations Is this really the vacation Tess was looking for Though she s on leave from the Occult Special Investigations squad, Tess Corday is still grappling with her own personal mysteries But finding out the truth about her demonic heritage has been difficult than she expected Plus, her unauthorized investigation into an addictive new vampire street drug is driving a stake between her and her undead boyfriendThen Vancouver s premier necromancer turns up dead Tess suspects that the cases are related And her suspicions will lead her into a paranormal showdown that can and will change the course of her life forever Frostfire (Kyndred, and demon relations Is this really the vacation Tess was looking for Though she s on leave from the Occult Special Investigations squad Stepping Over the Line (Shamed Tess Corday is still grappling with her own personal mysteries But finding out the truth about her demonic heritage has been difficult than she expected Plus Ray & Joan her unauthorized investigation into an addictive new vampire street drug is driving a stake between her and her undead boyfriendThen Vancouver s premier necromancer turns up dead Tess suspects that the cases are related And her suspicions will lead her into a paranormal showdown that can and will change the course of her life forever Bleeding Out is the fifth book in the OSI series by Jes Battis and an ACE Urban Fantasy.Blurb Though she s on leave from the Occult Special Investigations squad, Tess Corday is still grappling with her own personal mysteries But finding out the truth about her demonic heritage has beendifficult than she expected especially since her mother isn t talking.Plus, Tess s unauthorized investigation into an addictive new street drug that s irresistible to vampires is driving a stake between he Bleeding Out is the fifth book in the OSI series by Jes Battis and an ACE Urban Fantasy.Blurb Though she s on leave from the Occult Special Investigations squad, Tess Corday is still grappling with her own personal mysteries But finding out the truth about her demonic heritage has beendifficult than she expected especially since her mother isn t talking.Plus, Tess s unauthorized investigation into an addictive new street drug that s irresistible to vampires is driving a stake between her and her undead boyfriend, Lucian Agrado.Then Vancouver s premier necromancer turns up dead Tess suspects that the cases are related And her suspicions will lead her into a paranormal showdown that can and will change the course of her life forever.My thoughts Tess Corday has a great deal on her plate Her father is death, her sister is a demonic entity that could rip her apart with a thought and her mother is hiding something from her.If that weren t enough, she s on leave from work in order to get herself together after surviving a nasty demon attack and the vampire s in Vancouver are acting funny Top all that off with the death of the necromancer that was responsible for brokering peace with the vampires in the first place.Tess is following leads that take her down a path she s not ready to travel but travel she must and she may never be the same again.Bleeding Out is an enjoyable read Tess is one independent ladythan capable of taking care of herself.I give Bleeding Out 3 out of 5 stars.Product DetailsReading level Ages 18 and upMass Market Paperback 256 pagesPublisher Ace May 29, 2012 Language EnglishISBN 10 1937007634ISBN 13 978 1937007638
