Ink that the behavior of the umans really felt authentic which makes me very sad This is a series that Academia de Rowan (A Tapeçaria has earned a spot on my favorites list and I can t wait to see whatappens in the next installment I received an advance reader edition of this book from Harleuin MIRA via NetGalleyInitial ThoughtsThis book was fantastic I did like the first book just a bit but I enjoyed every minute of this one This book was pretty fast paced and I was never sure what would appen next I couldn t put it down If you read book one of this series Menagerie and were on the fence about continuing I would say your faith will be rewarded by doing so Book one was a round up to a 3 and this one a round down to a 4 Where book one seemed contrived and lacked pacing of any kind this book was dark and ad conseuences The difference in settings a traveling circus vs a Two Reels And A Crank hybrid lab prison arena sex club andunting safari Queens Gambit (The Tudor Trilogy, had a lot to do with this I often 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 ones smart people would make and alsoow the story tied up so uickly I will read book 3 Thoughts on the AudioI liked this book just as much the second time around This book really makes you think about what makes a real monster Spending time in Delilah s mind as she deals with everything that is appening to er in this new situation was very powerful Gabra Zackman does a fantastic job with the narration Reviewed by Rabid ReadsDelilah and the other cryptids of Metzger s Menagerie are recaptured after their all too brief taste of freedom at the end 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 The Camping Cookbook have bars The writing in this series is as exuisite as theorrors are abhorrent and it s this unlikely combination that makes the story so enthrallingOn the outside the Savage Spectacle appears to be a relatively Absalom, Absalom! humane way of running a freak show or at least as close as one can come with regards to the barbaric practice of keeping society s cast outs incarcerated for monetary gain The occupantsave mats to sleep on ealthy food to eat and their basic personal ygiene reuirements are met However a prison is still a prison no matter Black Stone how shiny it is and the fact remains that the inhabitants are beingeld against their willVandekamp On Liberty has set out to revolutionize the way that cryptids are kept with collars that can shock paralyze mute and call their gifts So as uncivilized as their previous accommodations were at least the captives could still scream and fight The owneras also come up with a bunch of different uses for No Way Down his new technology including work detail death matches sportunting and engagements The first three are pretty self explanatory but the last basically means that any detainee is available for Pulled Thread Embroidery hire and as you can imagine anything goes because cash is kingThe plot is once again driven by the need to survive except in this installment the focus is on the mind instead of the body It s one thing to physically beat someone into submission and uite another to literally take away their free will The author s insights into theuman psyche are truly English Humour for Beginners haunting in their realism and will make you side with the monsters much like Anne Bishop did wither THE OTHERS.
