Book Review: The Nameless Ones by John Connolly

I love this series so much! While I am a big fan of Louis and Angel, I must confess that I wanted a lot more Charlie – and even a lot more Louis and Angel… For a book focused on them, vast swaths of it felt more like an exegesis on the Balkan Wars, and I must confess as a result it was not my favorite of the books… It did not really feel like it was advancing the main storyline, so much as that it was part 2 of book 17 in the series (A Book of Bones) – and that also wasn’t one of my favorites.

Still, “not one of my favorites” in this series still means a darn good read. Don’t get me wrong, Connolly’s writing is as good as ever, and if the subject matter did not engage me as much as the more supernaturally-focused books, that’s my reader preferences rather than any failings or faultings of the story itself. Still, I’m looking forward to the next book and Jennifer’s evolving role – and hoping it will focus more on Charlie’s role in the grand scheme of things!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
