Review: Virgil (Marius Brothers, #8) by Joyee Flynn

Virgil (Marius Brothers, #8)Virgil by Joyee Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Virgil is finally happy.

We all knew, those who followed the Marius Brothers Series, that of all the brothers vampires, it is Virgil who is different.

In Virgil (Marius Brothers, #8 by Joyee Flynn, Virgil has been hiding something… But then again that isn’t anything new to him. He doesn’t fit in with the family that doesn’t even know who he really is. Learning long ago that he wasn’t normal, he strives to just fit in. Fate just doesn’t seem to have it in the cards for him.

Mareo and Foma have been searching for their other mate for centuries. Now that they think they’ve found him, Virgil’s running from them. Panicked that he’s only staying in Greece a few days and confused by his reaction, they decide to take desperate measures. After their plan backfires instead of opening up Virgil to being their mate, can they convince him they were only trying to help? Or will it be the last straw to push Virgil over the edge and leave everything behind to start over somewhere else, saying good-bye to the Mariuses forever?

After reading A Very Marius Christmas, all readers, including yours truly, felt that here was one brother who was lonely, sad, unhappy, jealous, envious, and basically unhappy. Okay, so he was happy that he got those gifts that the other brothers got, thanks to the mates, but all was not right.

After reading this, now we know the why of it.

To be honest, I was quite lost when it was mentioned that he was sort of the source of all those formulas that Riley always woke up to. In fact, I was quite dense then, reading all those books before this one, that I totally missed out on it. I had to dig in through the files once more and do an actual and manual search to find those clues. Well, duh me, I found some, I know there were others, but how could I have missed them? Maybe I was too busy smiling after reading about the different Marius brother adventure installment. In any case, mystery solved.

One thing that I did not really like about this book was that Virgil sort of whined too long and I had to be tell myself to be patient to get to the end of his whinging. When it finally happened, I made a huge sigh of relief. From then onward, the book made me smile.

Note: This book is written in first-person point of view.
Warning: This book contains double anal penetration.
