Rock Fiction Coveting: Half the Connections Series by Kim Karr

I don’t get why you’d start writing a Rock Fiction series and then change it up halfway through. Just start another series!

So I don’t know what Kim Karr was thinking, teasing us with three of the first four entries in her Connections series being  Rock Fiction. The rest… not so much, it doesn’t look like. But I’ll tell you something: the book descriptions themselves become more and more vague as the series progresses. Weird.

So the first two novels — there’s an epilogue to book #2 called 2.1 and a novella tie-in that doesn’t feature River and Dahlia — feature the same two folk. Like I said: River and Dahlia. But beyond that, I can’t really tell what the books are about. He wants to heal her.

Buddy, didn’t anyone tell you that’s one of the worst things you can try to do to a person? You can’t heal someone. You can help them heal, but you can’t do it for them.

Still, it’s Rock Fiction, and then there’s Book Three, which is about another dude in the band and is also Rock Fiction. After that, the category blurs. So let’s focus on these three, which have a bunch of common themes: characters who have a past before they connect on the page, and secrets that can destroy everyone and everything.

There are other storylines in fiction, you know? But maybe that’s part of what makes this series able to stretch beyond Rock Fiction — besides stretching to encompass the friends and family of River and Dahlia. I don’t know. I don’t know if the same elements would make the books after the first lose something.

I don’t know. Gonna have to read them to find out.
