All in all, things are looking up. Amazing Characters and awesome details. She can manipulate the mind, manipulate emotions, induce pure terror when she chooses to. I guess that is recommendation enough. Conclusion By the end of this book, Fortitude was a nice strong character that I could really stand behind.
I will admit to occasional lulls in the story but it was pretty awesome none the less! So the vampires in the world of Generation V are a separate species rather than the undead. Fortitude Scott is an underachieving, self-pitying vampire-to-be doorm I met M. Fortitude Fort Scott's life is kind of just there and it blows. Brennan disproves this by adding new and interesting facets to vampire lore. Swoonworthy is always in the eyes of the swooner — so I just tried not to worry about that angle of things. It means to be without kindness, to just be a trickster, a nuisance, a danger. His family is rich and arrogant and all vampire.
Fort wasn't an Alpha character -- in fact, I thought almost throughout, Fort was a bit of a doormat. In fact, no vampire has the sort of moral objections, or empathy that Fort demonstrates, a question that plagues him throughout the book. Her novels are available worldwide in multiple languages. Well developed, personable, and filled with so much life; I found myself in awe of how easily they slipped under my skin. I will not break our oldest laws for you. Fortitude doesn't display typical vampire behavior either.
Generation V is at times darkly horrific and absolutely hysterical. Vampires are generally known as rather confident, sexy and definitely wealthy, and Fort was about as far from those qualities as one could be. Fort's partner in this is a shapeshifter by the name of Suzume all jokes about foxes aside, she's clever, likes to have her own way, and is very mischievous. So Fort, who is very young, has no problems with sunlight. Very much a page turner, a story that has a lot of heart and much to offer.
To engage with those who live within my borders. It is well worth a read. I very much enjoyed the extended secondary cast and I look forward to see how the author develops them. Her character is very intriguing. The main character, Fort, is on the cusp of coming into his full vampire powers, but he likes his human side. I would like to mention the writing.
Creepy fresh air, but fresh nonetheless. More than that, he's the underdog. While he is not comfortable with being a vampire and has no real defensive skills, he is more than willing to go up against those stronger than himself to save a life. I had it completely worked out before I sat down to start the book, because this one was so important for me. Also, how long until Fort starts getting his new powers? At this point we are introduced to a rather attractive shape shifter. And while he had a bit of a tendency to let people take advantage of him, his singular focus in the book is saving somebody else. Very different take on the trope.
With Fort, she's got her job cut out for her. Fort is not the lead; he is the 2nd person narrator. Brennan's debut novel about the life and adventures of Fortitude Scott is engrossing, touching, humorous and left me eagerly anticipating the next volume on the Scott Family and the supernatural and human creatures that inhabit Brennan's wonderfully crafted world. Fort is 26 years old, and desperate to hold-off his transition for as long as he can, to the bafflement of his mother and siblings. Otherwise the next time I see you, you'll probably have a Doctor Who tramp stamp. Fortitude Scott is an underachieving, self-pitying vampire-to-be doormat with a wardrobe to match.
However, I was completely absorbed into the book by the 1st chapter of Iron Night. It has an abundance of great confrontations though, usually in the form of Fort with his family members. While his background was interesting, I felt that the fact that he lived with a coven of other vampires should have hardened his heart a little bit. Fortitude does have a tendency to whine quite a bit. Very much looking forward to future adventures featuring Fort and Suzume. I always carry a book with me when I go places, and if I have to wait for something, I just pull out my book and settle in.
Speaking of which, I love M. Ford is an almost vampire, and a good hearted young man. There is the option of a slug, rather than loose shot, for maximum effect, at range. Their creation was definitely an exercise in thinking outside the box! His family is scary and complex and the mysteries are engaging. Fortitude Scott is an underachieving, self-pitying vampire-to-be doormat with a wardrobe to match.
. If you feel like giving the hole vampire legends a try you have to reads this series, before this book I scoffed at the hole vampire reboots that seemed to be coming out, after Twilight, but by the first chapter I was hooked. The third book in the series is Tainted Blood and will be published on November 4, 2014 — and is now available for pre-order! I loved all the geeky references! After reading for a while, I discovered that he was really just a big wimp, never standing up for himself or really doing anything with his life. I was sad to hear that there would be no more books for this series. While there are real villains in this story, there are some who may seem villainous at first glance but are actually neither hero nor villain, just individuals coping with their unique circumstances in the best way they could.
