In the Books featuring The Ultimate Killer by Kimberly Clark

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring The Ultimate Killer by Kimberly Clark.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

The story picks up immediately where the first book in the Battles in the Dark series ends with Kira falling through the magical barrier and waking the Hunrati from their millennia long sleep. When she wakes, she discovers she’s been turned into one of the indestructible creatures.

Over the course of weeks, the Hunrati destroy city after city leaving the remaining Nostvores and other Mythlends struggling to find a way to defeat the Hunrati. When things seem bleak, a hope comes in the form of visions, but can they discover how to kill the unkillable before it’s too late?

Like the first book, I thought this was well written and added a great deal of depth with the new characters that made it a seamless transition between the books. Throughout Kira’s ordeal, we’re placed into the complex desires versus what she needs to do as she attempts to resist her captor’s plans. We feel her torment to the point we really want her to cut loose and slaughter all of the Hunrati.

Along with Kira, the characters from the first book are further developed as we’re introduced to their peculiar and varied nature when it comes to the bedroom. There are times I wondered if there was too much sex, but each scene was beneficial to showing the underlying character’s strength, personality, and feelings for their partners. In many ways, it was like reading a “How To” book when it came to personalities.

The one complaint I have is the ending left me wanting more. It was so unexpected I had to read it a couple of times and even let out a curse or two for not seeing a couple of signs here and there, but I’m not going to tell. Once again, Kimberly Clark has put me in a position of having to patiently wait for her next book. To be honest, it can’t come quick enough for me.

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
