Not what one expects from an FBI agent. She’s human with an depressing history. Plot wise there were a lot of holes why could the vampires feel the pull of the dead?
The introduction to this urban fantasy world isn’t particularly well executed. Even with vampires, ghosts, psychics, and the world of the deaxworld, it felt like the world we live in, with just a little bit extra. An BDSM sex scene that triggers and abusive flashback that might be considered rape. The near impunity with which she operates is baffling, and the more Martin digs, the more mysterious Rachel and Harbortown become. The characters didn’t feel authentic, the plot lacked depth and certain aspects of the story were revealed too slowly.
You weren’t sure if they were good or not. Nobody had the sensibilities required to handle the lunatic asylum of Harbortown, and she was just supposed to turn over the keys to her secret vault to some hack marine? No trivia or quizzes yet. Promotion of any kind? I give Deadworld 2 out of 5 stars. I was giggling with glee when he got out his “costume”, I could just see him standing there all dressed up in the middle of Chicago looking very out of place.
While some readers claim the characters lack depth, I came to love the main characters, even Jackie. Kensington April 1, Language: First, every character in the book is reffered to by a shorted version of thier name, for example Felice Halladay was aware.

Early Review: Deadworld by J.N. Duncan
Want to Read saving…. I’m unsure if I actually want to read any of the following books at this point, which is really unusual for me.
It takes more work to care about Jackie for this reason. I found the first 50 pages to be a little slow, then things picked up, but soon after page or so things took a change I didn’t see happen, which effected the rest of the book.
But I don’t know, I just didn’t like him all that much. One that she did duhcan her partn This book managed to surprise me in a couple of different ways. I will complain that there were some moments of dialogue that seemed completely out of character and threw me for a bit of a loop, especially towards the end.
Laurel senses that something is off about the murder scene.
Book Review: J. N. Duncan’s Deadworld – KD Did It Edits
Those are the three words that flowed through my mind while I read Deadworld. BUT if you are looking for a good read that you will be likely to pick back up again at some point in the future just because you want something to dull your mind to the real world, then Deadworld is the book for you.
We just die here…” I think this cover got away from another story… The title is Jackie’s introduction to a different world, an alternate plane of…well, not existence, for this is Deadworld.
Toying around with the sf story idea, which has as part of its premise, human experimentation. My Urban Fantasy still remains out on submission, with 3 rejections out of 8 pubs so far.
The characters were still pretty good. I’m not really sure where everything fell flat for me. She gets drunk and goes home with strangers most nights.
