Abridged Book Review: Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb

If you follow any of my book reviews, you know that I end up reading a lot of Nora Roberts. So, I figured that reading something under her pseudonym of J.D. Robb would also suit my fancy. I have to say this was a bit different, though.

While I completely understood that Immortal in Death was a different genre, I wasn’t expecting it to be so raw. The ‘seedy underbelly’ of a city in the future, the odd scenes of nudity, sex, and gore, and the rampant drug use just didn’t catch me. I love sci-fi, and I’m often wondering what things will be like in the future. They very well may be just like this, but Immortal in Death was trying so hard to be edgy that I barely ground through to the end. I won’t be reading any further into this series.
