    One thought on “Abracadaver”

    1. While I'm a big fan of the Esther Diamond series, this volume was a bit akward - it felt like an in-between-book where nothing really new happens and we actually wait for the next book in the series.The first half is basically a re-telling of the previous story, "The Misfortune Cookie", and therefore not that interesting and comparatively slow-paced. Luckily, after that the pace picks up, things start happening, the Action and hilarious slapstick humour are back and it reads again like an Esther [...]

    2. This is the latest volume in Resnick's Esther Diamond series. It starts in Chinatown right where the previous volume, The Misfortune Cookie, ended. Esther continues to pursue her acting career, surrounded by the zany support characters she's accumulated in the previous books, opposing the forces of evil in her spare time. The only drawback is that there's so much back-story and explanation that needs to filled-in that the pace is slowed considerably in spots. Still, it's a fast, fun, and light-h [...]

    3. I like the character of struggling actress Esther Diamond just fine--she's your typical paranormal-involved heroine trying to keep New York City safe from all manner of evil paranormal beings while retaining her sense of humor and keeping her boyfriend happy. And yes, this is a paranormal romance series, no matter what the author may say. You really hope Esther gets together with her unbelieving cop boyfriend by the series' end. The one problem I had with this particular installment was that the [...]

    4. An Esther Diamond Novel, I love Easter and Connor her sometimes boyfriend. This time they are off to another unusual adventure and again Connor just cannot accept what is going on right in front of him. Great addition to the series.

    5. I am slightly conflicted because on the one hand, Resnick gave us one of the strongest offerings building on the momentum of the past two offerings especially. On the other hand, I'm not sure it felt like a complete book. (view spoiler)[In particular, the build up to discovering the demon compared to the effort it took to expel the demon was ridiculous. I understand that the climax of the book was actually about Lopez getting shot and all that, but it seemed silly how much of a threat they thoug [...]

    6. Another rollicking adventure in the mystical underworld of Esther Diamond and company. I think I set a new personal record for fastest read. But I just can't put these books down. They're all fun, engaging, and enticing. I wish I made this world. This is the most recent Diamond book, but the 8th book is nearing completion. I'm sad for two reasons: I have to wait for it, and I'll probably read it too fast.

    7. This is the seventh book in Laura Resnick's Esther Diamond urban fantasy series and the odd shenanigans surrounding the main character continue.In this case, the story picks up immediately after the end of the previous book, with Esther wondering why Nelli--their familiar from another dimension, there to help them fight evil--nearly tears her sometime-boyfriend's partner's throat out. Suspicious that Quinn is behind the corpses that are suddenly starting to rise again after death, she attempts t [...]

    8. Esther and Max have not even left Chinatown following their last adventure in The Misfortune Cookie, before they get a call from John Chen asking them to come to the family's funeral home. It seems that one of their "customers" decided to take a short walk right out of his coffin. John knew just who to call. Esther seems to always be around when things like this happen. But in this case so does Lopez's (Esther's sometimes boyfriend) partner, Detective Quinn. Could the policeman be inadvertently [...]

    9. I'm so bummed that this book appears to be the last in the series (nothing written for the past two years.) Still holding out hope that there might be more at some point. This is just such a fun grab bag of crazy.This book picks up right where the last left off. Esther is reeling from the fact that she seems to be "off" once again with Detective Lopez (since she broke into his car and stole the fortune cookie that might kill her). Also that she just escaped death. Again. Too bad she's not going [...]

    10.

    11. Ok I think I've finally figured out why these books frustrate me. Love the characters. Love the quirkiness. But when the story final ramps up to where I'm ready for epic take down its just boom the end and here's a cliff-hanger that's only loosely related to the current story arch. So it's fun but not super hook you in fun for about 130 pages. Then there's a face off with the big bad where our Scooby gang figures out what's really going on. Then around page 175 cue final showdown. And then your [...]

    12. After several books in a series you will eventually find one that slips in quality, this is the first one in this series to do that. The first couple of chapters spends too much time re-hashing the last book and when we do get into new territory it just drags out and is uninteresting until about the last three chapters. The ending is satisfying if a bit too abrupt and leaves a few loose ends. I got the impression that this should have been part of the last book but that would have made for too l [...]

    13. Funny, fast read. And when I mean fast, I mean I read this in less than 24 hours, while getting a decent amount of sleep and working a full 8 hours. Hilarious! Esther grows on me every time I read more about her life. And Lopez - well, that poor guy is walloped pretty hard in this one. And his gorgeous, feisty mother makes an appearance again. I'm dreaming of a future where she and Esther have a knock down, drag out fight that ends in a draw and results in them being the best of friends/in-laws. [...]

    14. I love the Esther Diamond series so when I found out that Abracadaver had come out I had to read it. This book continues where The Misfortune Cookies ends. In Chinatown with Esther and Lucky wondering why Dr. Max Zadok's dog (familiar)attacked Esther's on and off policeman boyfriend Lopez's new partner Quinn. Called in an emergency by John Chen and his father they arrive to the funeral parlor to find that one of the deceased was walking around but that is only a symptom of the real problem. They [...]

    15. *spoilers*it wasn't just the endless ping pong between Lopez and Esther, the story was kind of flat. I thought there would be an awesome show down with the demonic entity since it's actions was escalating. sure there was a death and so the demon went from oppression to possession but they found it out quickly and dispatched just as quickly. it was anticlimactic as heck. this book felt like a filler rather than an installation. it would have been much interesting if Lopez was actually possessed a [...]

    16. I'm very tempted to give up on this series since there doesn't seem to be any movement toward anything. Just one supernatural disaster after another with no rhyme or reason or a sense that the author has a master plan. No one seems to be making any attempt to determine why Manhattan has seemingly become the epicenter for weird and why it seems to be following our supposedly "normal" heroine. And don't even get me started on Esther and the endless back and forth with Lopez. Come on already. MOVE [...]

    17. I liked this book; but I want a resolution to Lopez/Esther. It leaves us not knowing. Also leaves not understanding WHAT Lopez actually is. The idea of him floating above the bed, with flames on his body gives us a clue but still not knowing. The ending still leaves their romance up in the air. Esther deserves romance & she deserves romance with someone who doesn't want to change her. John seems to accept her for who she is. Lopez needs to decide who he is & what he really wants.

    18. This book starts right exactly where the previous book ended. Like, the same day, in fact, an hour after the previous book ended. And then the fist seventy pages were recap and dealing with that stuff, which was great because I had forgotten so much about what had happened before. Another fun instalment in this series.

    19. Not the strongest entry in the series. The recap ran on too long, with characters still catching each other up on the previous book’s action 100 pages in. It left little room for the reanimated corpse plot to gain steam. It’s a good thing they’re all so delightful to be around. Esther & co, not the corpses. ;)

    20. a little too much recap, and I'm unsure how long I can continue reading an urban fantasy series that relies on the skepticism of a main character to maintain romantic tension (she said. again) but the slapstick/supernatural/snappy dialogue keeps me hanging on.

    21. One of the best Urban-Fantasy series out there and Esther is a refreshing twist on the plucky hero.This was more of a direct sequel than most of the others and I missed learning about a new location and new characters.It was a strong addition and I can't wait for the next book.

    22. So good to have Lucky Gambello still with usA very fast read. You care about all of these characters, even the minor ones. As usual, the best lines belong to Lucky, whose return in the last book was a huge boon. Let us hope he is here to stay.

    23. I liked this one much betterme good plotting as usual, but without the repetitive whinier tone of the last one.Though I do wish there would be some sort of closure on the Lopez part of the story lineis will they won't they stuff gets old after a while

    24. A fun, quick read. I've been glomming the Esther Diamond books this year and now I'm all caught up! Sad/glad. This one picks up immediately after the events of The Misfortune Cookie.Favorite moment: When Esther sics Nolan on Lopez--for his own good,of course. So funny.

    25. Augh, the cliffhangers! Waiting impatiently for the next volume. Fun book, picks up story a couple of hours after the end of Polterheist, so have that one pretty fresh in your mind.

    26. bah, now I have to wait for the next one! Good series with a lot of humor mixed in with the supernatural stuff.
