Blowfly: Review 019

Blowfly

SPOILERS!!!

I have a lot to say about this book so I’m going to be merciful and break it into smaller sections. For those of you that have read this book, I’m sure you understand. For those of you that haven’t, TURN. BACK. NOW. Go read Point of Origin, then read this one. I don’t even care that you skip books in between. DO. IT.

Point 1: No author should be so cruel as to make the main character painfully lose every love interest they’ve ever had. Granted Kay simply divorced her first husband, but she lost Mark to a bomb and then Benton to fire. But, wait! BENTON AIN’T DEAD YO. I knew it. After how long Cornwell spent building up Kay and Benton’s relationship, it would have been series suicide to just throw away Benton like that. But DANG, the feels! Six years! I DID MY WAITING! SIX YEARS OF IT!

Point 2: That ending sucked. It left SO MUCH to be desired. But then again, Cornwell hasn’t always been fantastic at endings. Everything is just sorta suddenly resolved and the book picks up weeks later when they’re talking about what happened. My ONLY consolation, and a very small one at that, is that Kay let Benton hold her on the very last page. That’s it. If I had written the ending for this book, there would have been crying and hugging tight and a genuine reunion. Not this begrudgingly allowing them to hold hands.

Point 3: This is basically the only time I have ever agreed with Marino. I don’t really like his character because he’s obnoxious. But I guess that’s the point.

What did you guys think? If you’ve read this, that is.

Rating: 5/5

      Definitely do, but make sure you read Point of Origin first at the least. Stuff goes down in that book that gets resolved in Blowfly.
