Oddly enough, I've only read the last book in this series, which includes a link to another Peters' series I'm more familiar with. I'm being careful here, because I don't want to spoil anything, though, quite honestly, I'd heard about the link before reading the book, I just didn't know I was reading THE book it occurred in.

I didn't dislike this book, by any means. But I did feel that if I'd read the whole series and knew all the characters, it would have been a serial treat, if you know what I mean.


I know exactly what you mean. I actually felt that the John/Vicky storyline in that last one wasn't quite as satisfying as in adventures past, so I could see how it would be even more so if you didn't have the build-up or anything. Schmidt, though, was AMAZING.

The earlier books really are worth it, though -- huge, huge fun!


I forgot how much I loved your coverage of this series the first time around.

I have LOVED the Vicky Bliss novels since I first discovered them in the library over 10 (or maybe longer) years ago, and yet for some reason I had NO IDEA there was a sixth book. NIGHT TRAIN TO MEMPHIS is the last one I can recall reading. OMG, thank you so much, I am so excited to read #6... and then probably go back and read all of them again.

I have read and enjoyed them all. I think #5, Night Train to Memphis, is the best. And Schmidt is one of my favorite characters. And, of course, Peters puts some of herself into #6, The Laughter of Dead Kings.
