I liked the book as I have the others in the series but there were multiple problems with this one. Things were repeated that should not have been. It was as if the author had lost track of who said what to whom. I'm surprised an editor didn't catch these because at least one was pretty significant. Events were presented out of time sequence. And, sometimes the lack of speech tags made it hard to know who was talking. I'm also not a fan of multiple first person viewpoints. One, possibly two viewpoints is fine, but so many? Finally, this wasn't a complete story with a beginning, middle and end. It didn't even end on a cliff hanger. It just fizzled out in the middle of nowhere, and that was very unsatisfying. Oh yes, the love triangle. I'm not opposed to them but there was way too much, "I love her, I hate him" going on in this book. By the end of the book, I was so tired of Saul`s whining, I wished someone would shoot him and put him out of his misery. Will I read the next book? Probably, based on the other books, but not on this one.
Friction begins right where Frequency left off. Porschia, Tage, Mercedes, Roman and Saul head out to share the news of a cure with the other colonies. Sounds simple, right? Well let me tell you things couldn't go more crazy and wrong. Author Casey Bond had me revelling in the insanity of Porschia's wrath and the depths at which these characters will go to protect each other. Magnificent!!!
Of course Tage is as sexy and naughty as ever and I seriously cannot live without him. "My God, that sight would never get old. He was strong, virile, and bloody, and he smelled so good." Ahh! (*clears throat)
It's so exciting to watch as each of our main characters continue to grow and change. That's one of the things that really pulled me to this series to begin with and I am overjoyed that they each continue to evolve. Especially Porschia who has to learn to live with being incurable, and not fully a zombie or night-walker. She fights with the rage, hunger and knowledge that she will never be human again. Her strength and courage is the backbone to this series! Roman quotes Shakespeare and I think it describes her perfectly, "Though she be but little, she is fierce."
This series just keeps getting more exciting and just darn amazing! I can't say enough good things about Friction and the Frenzy Series. Grab a copy, sit back and be ready to go into a reading "frenzy".
Once again Casey Bond sucks me into her post apocalyptic world of Infected vs Vampires and all the humans the life hangs in the balance of these two damned creatures and their fight to abolish the sickness that plagues them. In Friction, we see our beloved little hybrid Porchsia begin to unravel. The responsibility that has been put on her shoulders since birth has begun to overwhelm her as the battles to keep her humanity versus giving in to her revengeful emotions for the wrongs that have been placed upon her. She's rattled and rattling those relationships that have kept her from Frenzy.
Bond does an excellent job of keeping the reader entertained yet again. Friction is the fourth book in the Frenzy series and I'm still just as emotionally involved eagerly absorbing the pages as I was when I first one clicked Frenzy, Bond's first book in this series. Bond's storytelling continues to grow as she tells the story of this Blackwater community. New secrets, characters, and emotions continue to develop engaging readers until the next release. I am so excited to see what Bond has in store for these characters. Will they find cures for these curses? Will Porchsia be able to deal with her new hybrid life? Will Roman ever return to his human form? So many questions are left unresolved! Make sure you read this along with the other three books and get ready for the next release by Bond. I'm sure it'll be just a good as this last one is!
iloved the tension in this installment. you can feel the emotions of the characters and how they relate to one another. Our main character is feeling isolated in this one. Despairing over the cures and what it means for her. This is a great read.
Just like the other books I was unable to put this down. I love how you think you know where the story is headed then a twist or turns happens. That's what keeps me wondering just how this story is going to unfold in the end. I have also enjoyed loving hating each of the characters. Just when I think I have one figured out either creeper jerk or sweet and compassionate, friend or foe,. I'm back in the loop again with these characters! Thank you Casey for yet another good book to read!
Another great installment in the Frenzy series! This one hooks you in from the beginning and the exploration of the characters in a deeper way is excellent! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into Fraud and plow my way through Forever Frenzy. Casey must be half vampire since she’s so addictive 😋
