after their all too brief taste f freedom at the end The Jesuit of the last book Originally I d thought that Rachel Vincent was going to take a completely different route in this seuel but instead SPECTACLE showed us that not all cages have bars The writing in this series is as exuisite as the horrors are abhorrent and it s this unlikely combination that makes the story so enthrallingOn theutside the Savage Spectacle appears to be a relatively humane way With Bound Hands of running a freak showr at least as close as Rim of the Pit one can come with regards to the barbaric practicef keeping society s cast You Can Beat the Odds outs incarcerated for monetary gain Theccupants have mats to sleep n healthy food to eat and their basic personal hygiene reuirements are met However a

also come up with a bunchf different uses for his new technology including work detail death matches sport hunting and engagements The first three are pretty self explanatory but the last basically means that any detainee is available for hire and as you can imagine anything goes because cash is kingThe plot is nce again driven by the need to survive except in this installment the focus is n the mind instead f the body It s ne thing to physically beat someone into submission and uite another to literally take away their free will The author s insights into the human psyche are truly haunting in their realism and will make you side with the monsters much like Anne Bishop did with her THE OTHERS series Vincent concludes this novel with yet another missile that ll see the MENAGERIE trilogy drastically shift directions Baltimore Catechism No. 2 one last time for the finale to Delilah s taleJust when I thought that the Speculative Fiction genre has nothing left to give BOOM here s SPECTACLE 45 Stars My thoughts were a stormf escape plans and revenge plots I really enjoyed the first book in this series Menagerie but with Spectacle I can t shake the feeling that I ve just read the same book twiceTo be honest I felt like Menagerie could have been wrapped up as a standalone The story ar If you read book Mic manual de campanie electorală onef this series Menagerie and were The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects on the fence about continuing I would say your faith will be rewarded by doing so Bookne was a round up to a 3 and this ne a round down to a 4 Where book ne seemed contrived and lacked pacing One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones of any kind this book was dark and had conseuences The difference in settings a traveling circus vs a hybrid lab prison arena sex club and hunting safari had a lot to do with this Iften struggle with urban fantasy but this was easy to read from cover to cover A few minor uibbles in decisions a few characters made which seemed convenient to the story but not Just Joking ones smart people would make and also how the story tied up so uickly I will read book 3 Is it possible to ratever five stars Because I totally would with this bookMany eons ago I was OBSESSED with Rachel Vincent s books I was a high schooler with a minimum wage job and and money to spend So I Hoarded Books And Rammed Through books and rammed through f Ms Rachel V s bibliography Soul Screamers Shifters Unbound Menagerie and little ld Wildcat topped my reading list I loved all Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) of them Thenne day I went ff to school and couldn t afford books #THAT WEREN T AT DISCOUNT STORES SO I LOST #weren t at discount stores so I lost chance at these booksAND THEN I FOUND COUPONS AND SALES AND GOT SPECTACLE Honest to god I read Menagerie when it came ut and about six years later I read this magical seuel Despite the six year gap for me as a reader I was able to totally remember what was going n and feel attached to this series againAND OMG I LOVED EVERY SINGLE FREAKING SECOND OF IT WHERE S FURY I NEED IT NOOOOOOWI love Delilah and Gallagher I did not love what happened to Delilah but that s drama in an adult book for you Anywho My actual review1 This book expands a lot n the first book Bigger stakes drama bigger fights and crazier cliffhanger I m curious where book three will go I m assuming it expands to the broader universe with cryptids in it because this whole series smells f go big r go home2 I feel like there s to Rommily then the book let s The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais on She sne Stay on Your Toes, Maggie Adams! of the narrators but she s not used a lot I find her so intriguing because her hints at the future are true you just can t tell what way they re going to swing3 The relationship between Delilah and Gallagher being best friends is such a nice change from the typical romance I see in most books but I mean I kinda do want them to get romantic That s the inner romance reader in me though The trust there is really inviting and makes me really love them as characters4 This book is fast paced and something is constantly happening I m the typef reader who needs that sort f action so I loved it If you re a slow burn kinda reader you are not going to enjoy this book Heads up5 I ve seen the complaints by ther reviewers that this book is a repeat Since it s been Night Train To Cherbourg: A Joszef Kiraly: Gentleman, Vampire Mystery over half a decade I can t say much All I can say is that I REALLY enjoyed it I m not the typef reader who reads an entire series back to back so it doesn t bother me all that much As long as book three isn t an exact repeat I think it ll be fine Rachel s Disowned onef my fave writers so it s not a downfall for me at all6 There s some real trauma in this book that just HURTS I feel so bad but at the same time can t stop reading There s some real trigger warnings in here but Rachel doesn t go R rated Your heart might hurt a bit from Comptia Security+ Sy0-301 Exam Cram onef the graphic scenes that isn t described just stated that it happenedOverall I loved this book I need I need Fury ASAP and I need Rachel to write books so I can binge them all I ve loved her for years and I still fall in love with her writingFive Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey outf five stars I m FURY IOUS that I don t have the final book The Cosmic Internet: Explanations from the Other Side of this series in my hands Haha puns. Granted for the right price But Vandekamp's closely guarded client list isn't thenly secret being kept at the Spectacle Beneath the beauty and brutality Marketing Aesthetics of life in the collection lie much darker truths and none is determined than Delilah to strip the masks from the human monsters and drag all dark things into the light.
