Dark Tracks (Order of Darkness #4) Reviews
This just was not good. The series as a whole has really gone downhill. The characters, far from “developing,” have regressed into fairly annoying caricatures of themselves. The lack of plot in this is astounding. It feels as if it was written in a single afternoon. I understand the thinly veiled Holocaust references, but they weren’t actually useful to the story, and they didn’t bring anything profound enough to merit including such a heavy topic in the first place.

Can’t wait for the next book
Despite Gregory's style, which I often find stilted, I am enjoying this series that I initially picked up for a song in the works. A valid examination of prejudice and fear of that which seems "other". The characters are bold and I enjoy Isolde and Ishraq's no nonsense attitudes and am curious to see how the series ends. They are short reads that vary between mindless and challenging (in terms of our own views - this latest installment particularly at this time of rising prejudice).
I won this on the giveaway. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, so I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Not the most exciting of books, but the plot certainly had plenty going for it and kept my attention, which really is impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed the suspense involved and didn't guess any of the outcomes. Definitely one worth reading.
