The In Death Series

The In Death series is a series of futuristic mysteries that Nora writes under the pseudonym JD Robb. These stories are unique because they feature the same couple in all of the books - NYPSD Lieutenent Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke - and follow the development of their relationship. They tell what happens after 'happily ever after.' If you can, it is recommended that you read them in order. However, each book does stand alone. Nora is currently writing two books a year, with books coming out every March and September.

Kendi's review: ***
Not her greatest work. I have read and loved all the books in this series, but this one seems to be lacking the "soul" of her other books. Its what I normally refer to as a "bridge book" of a series. Thats when the author needs to import some information to the readers for future books and cant figure out any other way to do it but write a whole book just to get it across. To me there were two pieces of information that had to be imparted in this book, one is fairly obvious and the other a bit more subtle but I believe it will play a major part in at least one of the future books.

Julie's review: *****
This was what I was waiting for. More Dallas, More Roarke, More Peabody and McNab and Feeney. And of course Summerset. I am waiting on the next.
