The Player (The Game Maker #3) by Kresley Cole


Review: At first I d I hounded my local Barns and Noble for this book for weeks, till they final got it in a month later. I could not do anything from stopping myself from racing home to read this book from cover to cover! I was so happy to finally have the last book of The Game maker series within my grasp!!!

I was sucked right back into this world without a second look back and loved reading more about the characters from the previous books. It was great to see them years later and still happy as ever.

At first I didn’t really know what to expect from Dmitri, since I had only had second hand thoughts of him from the other characters in the books. I am happy with how he did turn up to be in this book. Although the whole time I was reading I just kept thinking this can’t be it, right? Because it felt as if something was missing, normally Cole’s books have a spark of intensity added to the plot and characters, that drive you to not stop thinking about them. And I didn’t get that from this book……

Till almost at the end Cole hits you in the face with it!!! I mean wow, I am so amazed that she was able to keep that part of Dmitri from bursting all over the book. I am so happy she pulled this out at the end and left me reeling from it.
