    I wrote in my review of Catskinner s Book that, upon finishing it, I immediately bought the second book in Misha Burnett s weird urban science fantasy thriller horror series Much like the first, we are treated tothe same Here, it means you re in for a fantastical and horrific journey with madman in the driver s seat I have no idea where Burnett is taking us, and I don t care because I m loving every minute it.At the end of Catskinner s Book, James along with his newfound allies accepted I wrote in my review of Catskinner s Book that, upon finishing it, I immediately bought the second book in Misha Burnett s weird urban science fantasy thriller horror series Much like the first, we are treated tothe same Here, it means you re in for a fantastical and horrific journey with madman in the driver s seat I have no idea where Burnett is taking us, and I don t care because I m loving every minute it.At the end of Catskinner s Book, James along with his newfound allies accepted employment for Agony Delapeur, a creepy, crazy, psyhotic non human with a penchant for the color red The second book begins about a year later with James having settled into his new position somewhere in Agony s labyrinthine maze of companies, shell corporations, and construction firms While conducting an inspecting of a former tenant s apartment, James and Catskinner stumbles upon a bunch of Russian mafia types hiding a horrific creation And thus the second leg of the journey begins.Perhaps eventhan the first novel, Cannibal Hearts hits the ground running Introductions are barely made before we are, again, plunged headfirst into Burnett s fantastical, weird, and beautifully violent world That said, this novel feels a bit slower paced with a bitfocus on character interactions Many new characters are introduced and all bear Burnett s signature weirdness Again, I don t dare say to much because half the fun in reading this kind of book is the discovery.While the novel may be a bit slower paced, that doesn t mean I didn t plow through the book in a few days But it seems as if this book is drivenby character interaction than action Of course, in Burnett s hands, I don t mind in the slightest Burnett has a way of making you care what happens to the characters and their probably doomed relationships It s beautifully tragic, kinda like doom metal.That said, we do have plenty of action Even here, Burnett excels by making sure the action scenes don t overstay their welcome Many times, I find myself shocked at how short they can be, especially compared to an author like Larry Correia That said, Burnett makes it work These scenes are like bloody exclamation points at the end of exquisitely written sentences.Having said all that, there are two nitpicks I d like to mention, the first a bitegregious than the second Unlike the first book, Cannibal Hearts has a noticeable increase in typos They re not serious, but occur often enough to distract the reader.I mtorn on the second nitpick A big feature of Burnett s world are the ambimorphs, hermaphroditic plant women things that experience the world as one never ending caress As such, Cannibal hearts features one very racy sex scene, and, while it ssensuous and erotic rather than pornographic, my Catholicism prevents me from saying it doesn t cross the line In essence, There s a beauty here similar to Tanith Lee s work, so I won t chide the author for that.Now if you have any interest in weird genre mash ups, definitely pick up this book It s a wild ride, and you re never quite sure where you ll end up Much like he does in the first book, Burnett throws another curveball that practically forced me to pick up the third book This one isin keeping with the book s focus on character interaction If you re looking for something different, hell, even if you aren t, do yourself a favor and pick this book up Trust me, you won t regret it.4.5 stars out of 5

    Book twoMistakes there are a lot of sentences that are missing a single word spread throughout this book.Plot there really isn t much to the plot of the story It s rather straightforward with no twist of surprises.Characters I think everyone in this book might be bisexual except for the lawyer who appears straight.5.5 10

    IntriguingI m not sure where this is going It is slow and immerses you in a world of evil aliens and strange humans Everyone is some kind of monster, but some struggle to be human It is fascinating and strange I don t know what to expect next.

    I liked this book, but not as much as book 1 Why Because Catskinner, my favorite character, is getting pushed out of the scene as James learns to have a lifewith other people It s a fair piece of character growth, but without Catskinner splitting face time I am just less interested view spoiler And then Burnett killed it for me by sending Godiva away in the end I looked at the sequels and it doesn t look like she comes back either So I m done James without Godiva and James with re I liked this book, but not as much as book 1 Why Because Catskinner, my favorite character, is getting pushed out of the scene as James learns to have a lifewith other people It s a fair piece of character growth, but without Catskinner splitting face time I am just less interested view spoiler And then Burnett killed it for me by sending Godiva away in the end I looked at the sequels and it doesn t look like she comes back either So I m done James without Godiva and James with reduced Catskinner who becomes less and less prominent in the following books according to the reviews are not enough to keep me reading I m sure Burnett isn t writing bad sequels, they are just going to a place I don t care to hide spoiler

    I absolutely love this book so far I liked the first book in the series well enough 3 stars James Catskinner is a fun character, and I liked Godiva and Agony as well, but the first book just seemed to kind of meander about from one random disaster after another, with what felt like kind of an anticlimactic ending at the time Cannibal Hearts makes it clear, though, that the ending of Catskinner s Book was just setting things up for the wider picture displayed in this episode I loved the add I absolutely love this book so far I liked the first book in the series well enough 3 stars James Catskinner is a fun character, and I liked Godiva and Agony as well, but the first book just seemed to kind of meander about from one random disaster after another, with what felt like kind of an anticlimactic ending at the time Cannibal Hearts makes it clear, though, that the ending of Catskinner s Book was just setting things up for the wider picture displayed in this episode I loved the addition of Exquisite and the rest of the acolytes of the path of thorns, and I m glad Burnett clarified some questions I had about what Godiva was before her transformation Can t put the book down I m sure I ll be finished with it in the next day or two update Finished the audio book today Absolutely great book I love how James isn t an investigator, a cop, a self proclaimed monster killer, or whatever He s just a functioning sociopath with a lethal entity sharing his consciousness trying to live as normal a life as possible I m disappointed that book 3 isn t available as a digital audio book throughyet yes I could just read it, but I like how the narrator portrayed the various characters I m eager to find out what happens at this point between James and Godiva

    Despite its admittedly dark and gritty nature, I had a lot of fun reading this book It s a great sequel to Burnett s first novel, Catskinner s Book, and I especially liked that all the characters I enjoyed in the first book made their way into the second book One of my personal favorites is the red vixen, Miss Agony Delapour, who played a minor and terrifying role in the first book, but happily gets muchscreen time in the sequel.One theme I really like that runs through the series is tha Despite its admittedly dark and gritty nature, I had a lot of fun reading this book It s a great sequel to Burnett s first novel, Catskinner s Book, and I especially liked that all the characters I enjoyed in the first book made their way into the second book One of my personal favorites is the red vixen, Miss Agony Delapour, who played a minor and terrifying role in the first book, but happily gets muchscreen time in the sequel.One theme I really like that runs through the series is that we re never quite sure what s going on with everything We ve got our protagonist and his associates, who are actuallybad than good, some of whom try to actively do good things and fail, while others are clearly bad but just happen to be working with good people for their own nefarious purposes And we ve got our antagonist, who s the dictionary definition of mysterious we don t know who he is or what he s planning, beside the fact that he s apparently trying to kill off the protagonist And the fate of the antagonist is just brilliant You ll have to read to find out what it is All in all, a thrilling read I recommend you check this out if you re a fan of sci fi, thrillers, or mysteries

    Of course, after being so very delighted with Burnett s Catskinner s Book, I had to read this one right away I was initially mildly disappointed that Catskinner s role seemed to take a back seat to James , though I still found the story line most intriguing It seemed that James, as narrator, ruminatedin this book There was less of the dialogue between him and Catskinner and less of the quick paced action that I had enjoyed so much in the previous book.As the story progressed, again, Bur Of course, after being so very delighted with Burnett s Catskinner s Book, I had to read this one right away I was initially mildly disappointed that Catskinner s role seemed to take a back seat to James , though I still found the story line most intriguing It seemed that James, as narrator, ruminatedin this book There was less of the dialogue between him and Catskinner and less of the quick paced action that I had enjoyed so much in the previous book.As the story progressed, again, Burnett s creative genius showed through and I found myself deeply involved and invested in discovery Alien actually became comfortable The unusual and colorful cast of characters was so well drawn that I feel as if I have a whole new set of friends, and enemies, in this book even the weirdest Be advised, I like weird I will also add here, I loved the profound, original, and thought provoking quotes the author included under each chapter heading I am eagerly anticipating the third in the series

    I actually listened to this book I had seen a blog post by the author saying how fortunate he felt to have this particular narrator I have to agree The narrator was great This book is the second one in a series I had read the first book, but I m not convinced that this could stand alone without reading the first book The imagination of the author amazes me The paranormal fantasy creatures and what they can do is clever Some of the sentence structures bothered me Many short, choppy sente I actually listened to this book I had seen a blog post by the author saying how fortunate he felt to have this particular narrator I have to agree The narrator was great This book is the second one in a series I had read the first book, but I m not convinced that this could stand alone without reading the first book The imagination of the author amazes me The paranormal fantasy creatures and what they can do is clever Some of the sentence structures bothered me Many short, choppy sentences and too much telling instead of showing But the storyline was good and I really enjoyed this book I gave it four out of five stars and would recommend it, although it would be best to read Catskinners Book first
