I was a big fan of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series but had yet to read any of her other series. Then I started reading the Gunnie Rose series, and now I’m left wondering what took me so long to check out her other work. These books keep getting better and better, and The Russian Cage is my favorite so far. I could not put this book down and devoured it in two sittings. The expanded setting and world building, introduction to the Russian empire, seeing new sides to Lixbeth’s strengths and abilities were excellent. Harris’ relationship development between Lizbeth and all of the important friends and family in her life have been solid since book one, but I loved the increased depth and details in this one – from Eli and Felicia to Jackson and Felix, The dialogue had me laughing out loud in some parts.
I can’t recommend this series enough. The Russian Cage is the best one yet.
The Russian Cage releases February 23. Murder by the Book is hosting a fabulous virtual release event on February 26. Check it out here.
I can’t wait to see where Harris takes us next.
