Of course there are the usual acknowledgments where PCK “hearts” her publisher. Are you an eleven year old harpy, pretending to be human? Because that goddamned affectation of yours is as obnoxious as calling it “brown pop”. That’s the kind … Continue reading

Awakened Chapters 5 & 6
Chapter 5 Of all the characters in the series, Stevie is the closest to a real person. She’s considered the leader of the undeadlings but not by choice of god or author. She has a limited power, earth, which is … Continue reading

Split Second Prologue & Chapter 1
Prologue Having had my fill of “young adult” fiction and those hacks—mostly I’m just sick of Zoey—I figured a sort of break was in order. Not a break from recapping, just a break from the self-indulgent wish fulfillment vampire porn … Continue reading

Untamed Chapter 28
I hate Zoey’s grandma. There are the usual reasons, of course. Most of those stem from the fact that grandma, like every one of Zoey’s slaves, constantly praises her for things she doesn’t deserve. ‘Oh Zoey, you did such a … Continue reading

Untamed Chapter 13
Let’s talk about nouns, shall we? Like why is Neferet a “high priestess”? There’s an implication there, that there’s a regular priestess. Without other priestesses, there’s no point in calling her a “high” priestess. At that point they’re just inflating … Continue reading

Untamed Chapter 12
Here’s an in universe question for PCK. Hasn’t anyone else noticed that all sorts of things have started happening since Zoey appeared? Think about it, here they are just going around being vampiric, wearing black, reading sad poetry by the … Continue reading

Chosen Chapter 25
Have I ever mentioned that PCK has no sense of timing? A lot of hacks don’t but PCK’s latest is particularly irking. It’s important to establish what I mean by timing would probably fall under pacing. Though, for me, I … Continue reading

Betrayed Chapter 23
So last chapter had Stevie’s death scene and Zoey didn’t really react to it. She did cry towards the end and she said she drew strength from her friends standing close to her but it’s pretty sparse. Which is to … Continue reading

Betrayed Chapter 22
So I’ve been thinking back on Zoey’s “Vampyre Sociology 415 text” mentioned back in chapter 18. It seemed to have the basics a new vampire would need to know kind of like the Handbook of the Dead in Beetlejuice. So … Continue reading
