Undead to the World

A Bloodhound Files novel from DD Barant

Jace's return to Kansas is an instant reminder that there really is no place like home. The tavern is still brimming with losers, practical jokers, and motorcycle chicks. Even the town's only Goth is still wearing eyeliner. But just as Jace is about to click her heels and hightail out of there, she's roped into a brand-new case. Somebody is possessed. And the bodies are piling up…

They call him the Gallowsman. According to legend, he was sentenced to hang―though his crimes still have not been specified. When he was strung up to die, his spirit stuck around waiting for people to hang themselves…so he could steal their bodies. Now, with the undead rising up and going on a rampage, Jace must put her own neck on the line. Can she get the Gallowsman to give up the ghost?


Reviews about Undead to the World: The Bloodhound Files (7):

So I was thoroughly enjoying this series up until this last book. It felt rushed and didn't have the normal pacing that the others displayed. And what the hell kind of ending was that? I'm an avid reader, and I've never had a book series do that to me at the end? I was fully invested in what happens to the characters and it just ends?! Complete and total BS. I had planned on looking at other books from this author, but if this is the kind of thing I can expect I'll pass. There are plenty of other authors out there that I don't have to waste my time on this.

Synopsis: Jace Valcheck works as a waitress in Thropirelem, KS. She's not all right in the head, and everyone in town doesn't forget to remind her that. At least she has her favorite TV show she secretly watches, The Bloodhound Files. But now that dead bodies are showing up, and people are turning into something supernatural, Jace realizes not everything is as it seems...

Review: There are a lot of expectations in a final installment of a series. Undead to the World is the last book in the series, for the foreseeable future according to the author. I love the world Barant has created for us, and the details of his world were expanded in this book. However, there were many gaps in this installment that has left me feeling, incomplete.

First, what I did like. As I said before, the parallel worlds created in these books is unparalleled (pun fully intended). In this book, we see all the same characters from the previous books, but pictured as different people. Kansas was so different from alternate world Seattle, yet brilliant in its own way.

A fresh take on the mystery/crime plot, but story fit seamlessly into the series. Gallowsman was an intriguing villain, one we see and not see. Not forgotten were our regular villains and ambiguous bad guys. As a reader, we experience through Jace's eyes, as confusing as her own predicament. The crime and Jace's life mystery unfold complementary to each other. There were flashback moments where we got to see some of the characters' past, and those were crafted beautifully.

However, even with all of that, Undead to the World fell short. I was really disappointed in the characters. All the characters felt like their depth went AWOL. I understand why that was the case at the beginning, but why later on in the book? Why was Jace not witty or Cassius not charming? My favorite character(s) Tair/Dr. Pete, came across as so boring, I was yawning through their scenes. The Tair/Dr. Pete problem ended in a dull and unimaginative manner. Oh, and my other favorite, Charlie? Well, not what I expected.

Why do all the guys fall in love with or obsess over Jace? Like really...

As a final book, we expect to see a some resolution to the characters' thoughts and confusion, we don't get that here. I don't need all my questions answered, but a story always has a point--and there was no point, no lesson learned, no takeaway. Although I loved the overall plot, at many points it felt disjointed. Book two through four flowed flawlessly with each other and on their own, but the last book was choppy to the end.

Still, if you liked the previous installments, then you will want to finish the series. Perhaps the author will have a chance to give us a more satisfying conclusion.

Sex: kissing, sex scenes that are not vulgar.
Violence: people die, there are vampires and werewolves, what did you expect?

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Quote: Not that love doesn't matter; it's the reason for the love that doesn't. I don't care if you love me because you think I'm temporary or because you find wrinkles sexy or because I'm a dead ringer for someone you knew in Pompeii before it blew up; what I care about is the fact that you do. Right here, right now, you love me. I know that's real. And that's all that matters.

This is the 6th --- and presumably final --- book of a fun and very imaginative series. But the ending didn't bring closure as much as it left on a cliffhanger. This didn't leave me wondering, it left me feeling cheated.

Wondering if the author is not rushing things. The alternate reality story sucked. It went on too long and come on nobody noticed them all missing??? No one noticed a new reality? Who has that kind of power?? Disappointed!!!!

The story was sooooo dragged out. I skipped through a lot of it and don't feel that I missed a thing. Another alternate reality...everyone has had their memories manipulated. Takes the entire book to sort them out. Bad situation, no escape, dead people and I didn't care at all. Read it if you must but I can't recommend it.

Normally I love the bloodhound series. I can't wait to buy each installament and I read it right away without stopping. This last one? Meh! It starts off in a totally different environment and the character is wisecracking to herself almost continuously. Some of the lines are funny, but after a while I just want her to get on with it. And when she gets with her 'partner' Charle, it gets worse. In this case, I think I appreciated the wisecracks more when there was less. I am so disappointed that I am thinking I won't actually finish it. I am about a third of the way and it is hard to continue. I started out confused and still am. It seems we are in yet another alternative world. Jace is suffering from some sort of mental breakdown (or is a repeat breakdown?). Anyway she is not the person she was in the other books. The plot drags on as we are introduced to people we knew before but they were different too. Story line is hard to follow, I find I am not caring about the heroine and will finish the book only because it was stated that this might be the last of the series. God! I hope there is a happy ending!

Plot twists you never see coming, this book has all the others beat. It left me hanging on to each word. Couldn't out of down!
The book starts out completely different than the other series. Made me wonder for a moment if I was even reading the right series, but it still keeps you on your toes and wanting more.
