A Menu I'll Definitely Skip - Gluttony Bay Review

TITLE: Gluttony Bay (Sin du Jour #6)
AUTHOR: Matt Wallace
PUBLISHER: Tor.com
PUBLISHING DATE: November 7, 2017

FROM GOODREADS: Gluttony Bay is the penultimate Sin du Jour affair, Matt Wallace's funny foodie series about the New York firm that caters to the paranormal, which began with Envy of Angels.
Welcome to Gluttony Bay High Security Supernatural Prison. We value your patronage. For your entertainment this evening, we are delighted to welcome the world's most renowned paranormal culinary experts.
And on the menu: You.
MY THOUGHTS: So basically anyone who follows my blog knows how much I love Matt Wallace's Sin du Jour series. In fact, anytime a new one comes out, it's pretty much a guaranteed quick read. "Gluttony Bay" was no different and once I received approval for an ARC from Netgalley and Tor.com, I knew before long I would be revisiting old friends.
Given that Gluttony Bay is a high security supernatural prison, you can only imagine what goes on there. And somehow, part of the Bronko's catering crew ends up as residents - or should we say hostages. It's hard to go into much detail because this is the 6th installment in the series but I can honestly say that the book is action-packed and Wallace never fails to amaze me with new material. I do feel like a lot of "Gluttony Bay" is set up for the final installment in the series, which even though I'll be sad to see it end, can't come soon enough to please me.

If you haven't started the Sin du Jour books yet, this would be a great series to marathon. In fact, I sort of wish I was a first-time reader all over again because I can still remember how much I love the first one. Wallace is headed to the finish line strongly and I'm pretty sure the next installment will secure his win!

RATING: 4 PAWS

    1. I think I had heard there were only seven planned after each one is titled as a play off the seven deadly sins. It's still sad though. Wish it wasn't ending.

  7. Woo hoo - I've found a different way of commenting - I don't know why but my comments on all your recent posts have disappeared and I've noticed it on other blogspot sites too - don't know if it's just me or whether there's a glitch at the moment. Anyhow, you didn't need to know all that really but just in case you were wondering why I've not been commenting - there it is...

  8. I bought the first book in this series based on your recommendation but haven't read it yet! I need to do just what you suggest and binge this whole series. Great review!

  9. I haven't heard of this series before. I am always looking for a good book series. I love getting invested in the characters. I think that is why I love OUtlander. There are so many books and they are looooong. But I will never get tired of Claire and Jamie. Thanks for sharing.
