The Doll By Taylor Stevens (Review #4)

Description of the the book: Haunted by a life of violence and as proficient with languages as she is with knives, Vanessa Michael Munroe, chameleon and hunter, has built her life on a reputation for getting things done dangerous and often not-quite-legal things. The ability to survive, fight, adapt, and blend has since taken her across the globe on behalf of corporations, heads of state, and the few private clients who can afford her unique brand of expertise, and these abilities have made her enemies. On a busy Dallas street, Munroe is kidnapped by an unseen opponent and thrust into an underground world where women and girls are merchandise and a shadowy figure known as The Doll Maker controls her every move. While trusted friends race to find her, everything pivots on one simple choice: Munroe must use her unique set of skills to deliver a high-profile young woman into the same nightmare that she once endured, or condemn to torture and certain death the one person she loves above all else. In this high-octane thriller Munroe will have to fight fast, smart, and furious to overcome a dangerous nemesis and deliver her trademark brand of justice.
How this book made me feel: Once you start with the series, the only way is forward. So here you go, third book of Vanessa Munroe’s series and of course I liked the book but could’ve been better? The answer is yes. Even though the book had interesting characters it was quite slow paced and Munroe’s amazing abilities didn’t shine that much. Some of Monroe’s decisions were predictable and not very smart.  Badford was doing great job in this book and he was the active one this time. I missed the action from Munroe’s side, as she was really passive this time. “The doll” itself was sometimes very annoying and stupid, and it was sad to see Munroe to put up with it. It was interesting and easy to read this book but it was missing the “wow” factor.
My Rating: 8/10
