Jaime's Review of Etched in Bone by Adrian Phoenix

More beautiful and powerful than any creature the world has ever seen, Dante Baptiste has become the supreme target of the three worlds that spawned him. The mortal agents of the Shadow Branch have tried to control his mind through psychological torture. The vampire elders who guide nightkind society have plotted to use him in their bloodthirsty bid for power. And the Fallen have waited for millennia for Dante to claim his birthright as their Maker. But Dante belongs to no one—except the woman he loves. . . .
Determined to face the Fallen and the world on his own terms, Dante hopes to piece together his shattered past and claim his future, with FBI agent Heather Wallace at his side. But in Heather’s human family awaits an unexpected enemy. One who could rip Heather from Dante’s heart and fill the holes with bullets. One who could force Dante to choose his darkest destiny—as the Great Destroyer. . . .  Excerpt from Goodreads.

Jaime’s review
   Just when I thought I had a story line figured out Adrian throws us another curve ball. I knew that since there are more books to come in this series that everything wasn’t going to be all happy hearts and teddy bears but, OMG I never saw what was coming in this book!
   Etched in Bone picks up pretty much right after Beneath the Skin ends with Heather and Dante going to find Lucien in Gehenna. The story is so fast paced and told by so many different perspectives that sometimes it’s hard to keep up but, if you’ve read the other books you’ll remember character names and their places in the story line. Basically all hell breaks loose in this story and no one is safe including our two leads Dante and Heather. There were some parts of the book where I really wanted to throw it against the wall and just yell at these people “Leave poor Heather and Dante alone!”
   What I love about these books and characters is the bond between Heather and Dante it’s not one sided where she’s all googly eyed and needs him he very much needs her too they balance each other completely. The other characters as well hold a significant place in my heart I especially love Von and Silver their comments always make me smile. There’s so many bad guys in these books sometimes it’s hard to keep track of who’s truly bad; some of these people have flipped sides so many times you get whiplash.
   Adrian has written another hit! I cannot wait for book five in the Maker’s Song series because this one left us with a total cliffhanger. So if you’re a fan of Adrian’s books or looking for a great new series to read I suggest picking up the Maker’s Song series and book 4 Etched in Bone comes out in stores tomorrow 2/22/11. Happy reading!

Note: This review was possible because the amazing Abigail at All Things Urban Fantasy gave me the book to do a guest review on her blog. She will be posting my review soon here's her site http://allthingsurbanfantasy.blogspot.com/ so be sure to check out my review there also.


  1. I'll have to check out this series. It sounds very exciting! Great review.

    Do you know how many books are planned? I'm looking for a long series as so many are ending/have ended this year :(

  2. I know for sure there will be a book 5 and I think there will be a number 6 too I haven't heard about any after that but I can ask Nate the head if her street team.

  3. I hope to have this series going for a long time. I love the characters and their complex world. My publisher had bought books 5 and 6, and hopefully (with good sales), more after that.

  4. Me too Adrian I love your books :D

  5. What a lovely blog you have! :) I just gave you an award! Please check it out on my blog.

  6. Okay, I haven't read this series yet - never heard of them before, so to be honest, I'm going to skim over the review!

    BUT I do have to let you guys know that I'm totally flippin' out over the books that you guys are currently reading! I mean, talk about amazing!


  7. This is one of my favorite series, and Etched In Bone is a great addition to the series. This is such an intelligently written series, that I can't wait to read more.
