Sinclair Vinemont, an impeccable parish prosecutor, conducts his duties the same way he conducts his life–every move calculated, every outcome assured. When he sees something he wants, he takes it. When he finds a hint of weakness, he capitalizes. But what happens when he sees Stella Rousseau for the very first time?
Sinclair is a prologue to The Acquisition Series and is told entirely from Sinclair Vinemont’s point of view. It can be read in one sitting.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So I have to confess I have read Sinclair (Acquisition #0.5 ) by Celia Aaron backwards. I read the Acquisition series quite a while back, only discovering I should have started with this after.
So this little morsel has been sitting on my TBR pile for ages.
Problem is when you know how the story progresses it’s like a huge spoiler alert blinking at you.
Then I read Celia’s Incubus and this just happened to be a freebie at the end, so I was out of excuses.
So This is short and sweet, of novella length.
It’s basically a brief intro to set the stage for the upcoming series.
So Sinclair gives us a peek into his head, what makes him tick and it’s not a pretty picture to behold.
Told from his POV we get to see Sin in all his arrogant glory and he comes across as a grade A tit, an over-privileged stick up his bum douche.
Should just say That I Was kinda expecting that considering I knew how this series plays out.
We don’t really get to see much of Stella here, that comes later, as I believe, correct me if I’m wrong, that the following books are told from her POV. (It’s been a while)
So as I mentioned earlier Sinclair set’s the stage hoping to draw us into reading Councillor.
Does this do that? Well, I did enjoy this but it didn’t blow me away.
If I was considering reading the whole series, well I’m not sure this would have done that, it was just average.
But don’t let that put you off the Acquisition series makes for some brilliant fiction, it’s honestly up there with my favourites. and I read a lot so that’s quite a feat.
I’m even considering a re-read of this if I can fit it into the books I want to have another go at Pile (there’s a few on that one as well)
So that’s all folks, hope you give this ago it’s a small snippet that leads into a fabulous series.
