Meeting Sherrilyn Kenyon / Book Resolutions

I didn't get a chance to blog yesterday, but I finally met Sherrilyn Kenyon. I got my copies of No Mercy, Infinity, and the two graphic Lords of Avalon novels signed. I confessed to being the infamous editor of the "Carnival of Rust" fan video, and had a great time!

No Mercy was a great book! I may be bias because Dev has been my favorite Were since the series began, but I really enjoyed the story. I didn't get annoyed with the heroine, which is rare, and I think it is the DH novel I enjoyed the most since Acheron came out.

Now, last week I finished reading Black Hills by Nora Roberts. This is the first NR book I've ever read, it was decent for a contempary. We all know I am not a fan of the contemp. genre. The reason I read it was because the heroine, Lil, was working in a career field I originally wanted. I would have if it wasn't for my near fail in Molecular Bio and having to drop Botany because I just couldn't tell a slide from a fern cell from a slide of an algae cell. I wanted to work with the big cats among others, but mostly the cats. Lil had lions, tigers, cougars, jags, leopards, bobcats, lynxes....yeah. I was in career lust with that book. It was actually quite good, but...

What happened to a good resolution? You go through all 400+ pages of rising action, get to the climax, and have a really unsatisfying resolution. I wanted to know a little bit more about all the major points in the story. It just kinda ended a few pages after the climax. Oh well, we can't always get what we want, can we?
