    Has Sequel Syndrome

    I was really enjoying this series, but this book didn't work for me in the end. It had too many plot twists that just had me shaking my head even before they killed off a character I really liked. Still a decent read, but nowhere near as good as the first two.

    Highly recommended

    It's the second book I read by this author and I found it entertaining and unputdownable. I loved the likeable and well written cast of characters, the engrossing plot full of twists and turns, and the well thought world building. i can't wait to read another book by this author. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    A good read

    Things are going fairly well for self-described not-ghost and former “recovery specialist” (read: thief) Wes Cooper. He’s living with his vampire boyfriend, Hudson, in a swanky neighbourhood in Toronto, they’re surrounded by their little found family and their PI business is going well. Wes is settling in to being a god, though he’s still not sure what he’s supposed to be the god of. Too bad the rest of the world hasn’t gotten the memo - vampire kills are up, shifters are dying and paranormal law enforcement is sniffing around after Hudson’s niece. Oh, and their snooty neighbours are being all passive-aggressive. Typical. This series is a reliably fun read. There’s plenty of action, a decently-fleshed-out supernatural world and solid protagonists and supporting characters - though I’ll admit to sometimes wanting to give Hudson a kick in the butt. And it’s comfortably Canadian (though the audiobook narrator for the series mispronounces some things), but doesn’t overwhelm with stereotypes. One thing I do particularly like about this series is how Wes’s sexuality is handled. He self-identifies as being on the asexual spectrum, but does sometimes experience sexual attraction, which is a nuance not often tackled in romance. It perhaps gets a touch more explanation than needed throughout the series, but not to the point where I feel the author’s just trying to call attention to having given the character such an infrequent orientation. So, to sum it up, this is not going to win prizes for literature or anything, but fans of queer urban fantasy won’t be disappointed. **** The standard disclaimer - I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Fun times with a not-ghost

    I found this on NetGalley and thought it sounded interesting and after binge reading the first two books, I was really on board. However, this is the third in a series and it’s going to be hard to skirt without spoilers. I’m going to try though. Honestly, my opinion hasn't changed much from the last two books. The book is fun and engaging. Wesley is still a selfish doof who makes loads of mistakes with everyone in his life and Hudson is still a jerk. However, there is definite improvement in not only their behavior and attitudes (Gasp! It’s almost like they’re following a real character arc) but also in their friends. They have a wider circle of support by this book and it continues to grow throughout and that’s great. It’s natural integration and not forced. No “Hi, I’m the main character and we’re friends now.” Which is perfect. The actual plot of the book is even a wild out-of-control snowball careening down a hill. It kept me focused and wondering what would happen next. I honestly tried to guess several outcomes as I read but I was always wrong and that’s an interesting take in a book all by itself. However, like before, my only issue is in the laws of magic in this world. Wesley isn’t consistent and that bothers me quite a lot. Sometimes, he’s almost painfully human with his powers and other times not and there was no real coherency with that. I don’t need magic explained to me down to minute details but I do like to know actual parameters of casters/users. At times, he should be more powerful than he is but he wasn’t, but then he’d be super powered and there wasn’t any true explanation on how he can be both. He should be super powered and that can convincingly be embraced throughout his books without Marty-Stu’ing him. It made me feel like he was missing his potential for this book. He can do amazing things but then can’t do the same thing because reasons that do feel forced and wrangled into the story for the author to make a point. I get what the intent was but I feel it could have been done differently or explained better. Otherwise, I loved the book. It was only the inconsistency of Wes’ powers that kept me from 5 staring it. Unfortunately, it gets a 4 out of 5 from me. It was a major world-building issue for me but kept high stars due to the use of actual character development and great interactions and scenes. I still want to see more of these characters, especially with where the characters are now.

    4.5 stars- Great ending to an excellent series

    I knew the conclusion to the Not Dead Yet series would be amazing and Graveyard Shift was certainly that. This is one of those series that hits on so many of my favorite things- a fun relationship between main characters, intriguing storylines, palpable emotion, fantastic secondary characters, and banter that makes me smile often. Graveyard Shift also held plenty of surprises- most made for an exciting story, others led to some heartbreak, but I cannot deny that this book held my full attention and solidified the series as one of my top faves. Graveyard Shift definitely had that capping off feeling from the outset, rounding out storylines and characters. I loved seeing Wes’s full transformation in this book. Though he’s always been fun and sassy with a quiet strength, it was even better when he realized his potential and embraced it. Likewise, I enjoyed seeing Wes and Hudson’s relationship further solidified throughout Graveyard Shift. Their connection felt deeper as the story progressed, and it was reassuring to see their bond hold true despite the hardships their little family of friends and loved ones faced. And man were the action and unexpected turns on point in this one, leaving my heart lurching a number of times and wondering how this could be the end of such a great series. If you’re in need of the next binge-worthy series, I highly recommend picking up Not Dead Yet. Meanwhile, I’ll hope to see these characters pop up in a different series in the future so I don’t have to say goodbye just yet. *eARC received via Netgalley.
