Granted for the right price But Vandekamp's closely guarded client list isn't the only secret being kept at the Spectacle Beneath the beauty and brutality of life in the collection lie much darker truths and no one is determined than Delilah to strip the masks from the human monsters and drag all dark things into the light. Everything that is happening to her in this new situation was very powerful Gabra Zackman does a fantastic job with the narration 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 My Mother, a Serial Killer 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 had conseuences The difference in settings a traveling circus vs a hybrid lab prison arena sex club and hunting safari had a lot to do with this I often struggle withrban fantasy but this was easy to read from cover to cover A few minor The Italians Stolen Bride uibbles in decisions a few characters made which seemed convenient to the story but not ones smart people would make and also how the story tiedp so The Greek Tycoons Mistress uickly I will read book 3 This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in BooksThis book livedp to all of my expectations That is saying a lot because I really set the bar pretty high for one Last year I picked p the first book in the Series Menagerie On A Menagerie on a completely fell in love with the story I immediately started counting down the days ntil I would be able to see what happens next in the life of Delilah and everyone else from Metzger s Menagerie I had a few guesses about where the story would go next and all of them ended Bidding on Her Boss (The Hawke Brothers, up being wrong I couldn t be happier about that because I love it when a book really surprises me as this one was able to doThis book picksp right after the events of Menagerie This is a series that really should be read in order so I do recommend that readers new to the series go back and read Menagerie before starting this one It is a great book so you wouldn t want to miss it anyway Delilah and the gang are running the show and trying to make things work Things are tough but they are enjoying their new found freedom ntil things go horribly wrongThey soon find themselves being added to Vandekamp s Spectacle This is not a place you would want to be It isn t a traveling show as Metzger s was Vandekamp s serves a different kind of customer The exhibits are subjected to pretty much anything the clients are willing to pay for and the owners find profitable The captives are controlled through high tech means which seem impossible to overcomeThis story proved to be incredibly exciting for me Everything tha.

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 after their all too brief taste of freedom at the end of last book Originally I d thought that Rachel Vincent was going to take a completely different route in this seuel but instead spectacle showed s that not but instead SPECTACLE showed s that not cages have bars The writing in this series is as exuisite as the horrors are abhorrent and *it s this nlikely combination that makes the story so enthrallingOn *s this nlikely combination that makes the story so enthrallingOn outside the Savage Spectacle appears to be a relatively 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 occupants have mats to sleep on healthy food to eat and their basic personal hygiene reuirements are met However a prison is still a prison no matter how shiny it is and the fact remains that the inhabitants are being held against their willVandekamp has set out to revolutionize the way that cryptids are kept with collars that can shock paralyze mute and call their gifts So as ncivilized as their previous accommodations were at least the captives could still scream and fight The owner has also come Secret Hideout (Cooper, up with a bunch of differentses for his new technology including work detail death matches sport hunting and engagements The first three are pretty self explanatory but the last basically means that any detainee is available for 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 ite another to literally take away their free will The author s insights into the human psyche are truly haunting in their realism and will make you side with the monsters much like Anne Bishop did with her THE OTHERS series Vincent concludes this novel with yet another missile that ll see the MENAGERIE trilogy drastically shift directions one last time for the finale to Delilah s taleJust when I thought that the Speculative Fiction genre has nothing left to give BOOM here s SPECTACLE 45 Stars 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.
