Urban Fantasy Review: Lineage by Skyla Dawn Cameron

Lineage by Skyla Dawn Cameron (Demons   of  Oblivion #3)

Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
What’s a woman to do when her dad’s the antichrist, her grandma’s the devil, the end of the world is at her doorstep, and she’s out to avenge the murders of her husband and kids?

Kill everything in her way.

Quarter-demon Peri Takata exists with but one goal in mind: annihilate everyone responsible for the death of her family. Then—her need for vengeance quelled—she plans to take her own life.

Her mission brings her to the vampire Zara Lain, the only known survivor of the event that destroyed Peri’s family five years ago. Hunting down a secret society of those who don’t want to be found has its challenges, however, especially when forces are working to keep the antichrist’s daughter very much alive. The apocalypse is closing in and Peri may be playing a role in it whether she wants to or not.

But when a heart long-thought dead begins to beat again with love for another, she’s not so sure about anything anymore.

While this is a not bad book, so far it's the weakest in the series, peeps. I'm trying to think rationally about things that made it so and all I can come with is that Peri is not a very likeable character and she is outshadowed constantly by Zara Lain.

Peri is a quarter-demon who found out about her powers when her husband and two kids died in a blast of the initial attacks around the globe in the first book of the series. She lives for revenge and works for the secret organisation which promised her to find the man who blew up her loved ones.

When her superiors send her for answers to Zara Lain, our favorite vampire invites her to join the hunt for Court of the Veil just for the fun of it, and while they are at it they might as well stop the upcoming apocalypse. No pressure or anything!

Peri doesn't like herself and she half-dislikes, half-admires Zara. Her need for revenge makes her so morally ambiguous, she doesn't appreciate what other people do for her and she is quick to abandon them or even betray them. This was my major complaint about our gal. Zara works for her own benefit, it's true, but she has wherewithal to make it everyone's benefit and make money at the same time. Peri does not.

Still, Peri manages to redeem herself in the end, and I'm pretty sure I'll see her again in Exhumed and maybe, just maybe like her more. Otherwise, it's an okay read but not my favorite.

К сожалению, третья книга серии - самая слабая. Я пытаюсь проанализировать почему книга не удалась и прихожу только к паре выводов. Во-первых, Пери - героиня, которой очень тяжело симпатизировать. Во вторых, на фоне Зары Лэйн она совершенно бледнеет.

Пери - на четверть демон, которая потеряла мужа и двоих детей при серии взрывов в первой книге, когда брат Нэйта пытался стать частью Двора Вуали. Её подобрала определённая секретная организация, пообещавшая ей месть и имя убийцы её родных.

Пять лет спустя Пери получает от своего начальства имя Зара Лэйн, и ей рекомендуют пообщаться с нашим любимым вампиром, чтобы узнать кого ей нужно убить, чтобы отомстить за мужа и детей.

Зара решает поохотиться за Двором Вуали вместе с Пери чисто для удовольствия, а на стороне ещё и предотвратить наступающий апокалипсис. Проблема в том, что флиртующая, саркастичная чертовка Лэйн совершенно подавляет бледненькую, скучную, неискушённую в делах паранормального мира, Пери. Пери к тому же полу-любит, полу-презирает Лэйн и готова на всё, чтобы заполучить свою месть, даже если это означает предательство тех, кто ей безвозмездно помогает.

В общем, книга вышла неважная, однако к концу её главная героиня изменилась к лучшему, и возможно я посмотрю на неё по-иному в книге следующей.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
