I enjoy the plots, and most of the characters, but some seem to be nothing more than fodder for conflict; namely, Maddie. I can't stand her, which makes Georgina's consideration of her all the more. annoying.
I absolutely love this series! Each book only gets better and better. They make me laugh, cry, angry, and shocked. I go through the emotions of the characters in the book. Literally dragged into their world. And what an amazing world it is. The audible narrator Elisabeth Rodgers has done an amazing job performing these books. I love listening to her. She definitely makes the characters come to life. Can't wait to read the next one!
yes, it's outstanding
dichotomy of emotions
all the afore mentioned and more
My heart is broken...rarely does a book come along that I get so caught up in the characters that I actually FEEL their pain. In this book I am with Georgina, Seth and Maddie every heart breaking step of the way. The dichotomy of emotions are wonderfully torturous.
You get the summary of the story...the gang's abilities disappear with Jerome, Georgina sets of to figure it all out and deal with her raging pendulum of emotions, etc.
Roman is back baby!!!! BEST DAY EVER!!!
So many twist and turns that I've come to expect from this writer. I only wish I had an interest in young adult so I'd more of her work to read....I know this series is going to end at book 6 and I'm already mourning the loss, it's THAT GOOD guys!
Okay I really began to hate Seth here. He was kind of stupid in my opinion, and I think Georgina let him and their issues control her too much. I feel like someone with her morals should have been able to stop screwing Maddie over quicker than she did. I was also irritated that Seth's solution to their problems was so selfish and ridiculous. There were far better ways to fix or end their issues than literally sleeping with and dating gk's BEST female friend! Seriously it was a low blow on his part. I thought he was a better guy than this, but I guess it's all part of the author's design. Besides that I loved the way this ended. It was cute and inspiring.
It gets better and better. Richelle Mead is a fantastic writer. The plot really is fantastic. I feel for Georgina and Seth. How is their romance going to get a happy ending? It get so complicated! The narrator, Elizabeth Rodgers performed very well. All the characters are so interesting and so immersed in each other's lives. Georgina's friend are loyal and try to be helpful in their own way. I feel so sorry for Seth because I feel he's caught in bind between two women and he can solve anything without hurting the other. Oh it's so.......gut wrenching! I an downloading the next two books and I do hope there will a happily ever after though I don't know how Ms. Richelle Mead is going to do it!
This is one of the best books in one of my best series I'll start by audible. It is well known that all level can be enjoying by an adult or hungry read something out of everything. Not for children.
I could not stop listening to this book. It is a great series and this book reveals a lot about the characters.
Yes on both counts.
That is tough to say. I started out liking this series, and this book is not horrible. However, the male lead in the series has become a douchebag and I kind of want to slap the main characters.
I liked the interaction between Georgie and the farcial Satanic club. They were so silly.
I could see it as a series on Showtime, since it is pretty risque'. I could totally see Mila Kunis as Georgie.
Probably one of the best entries in the series yet. This book deals with a variety of very serious issues and presents some very real threats both to Georgina and her friends and to the entire hierarchy of power in Seattle. Themes of betrayal in various forms run strong here, as do issues of trust, both knowing who you can trust and knowing when to trust and not to trust. The status quo is shaken from top to bottom, and as with previous volumes in the series, nothing will be the same again once all is said and done here.
Georgina has been trolling around at rock bottom in the months since her spectacular and heart-rending breakup with Seth in Succubus Dreams. She's since hooked up with Dante, a human psychic that we met in that book, much to the dismay and disgust of her friends. Instead of the caring and charming woman that we've known so far in this series, she's become bitter and angry, caught in a downward spiral of drinking and evil-doing that seems more than a little unlike her. The situations she is thrown into here, however, make her re-examine her attitudes and her reactions to everything that has happened to her, and thankfully serve as a catalyst to bring her out of her funk and restore her mostly to her former self. Of course, given the nature of some of the trials she has to face, it's inevitable that they will leave her changed as well, though this time it seems the change will be for the better going forward.
Characters and storylines from previous books resurface here, some which it had been obvious would be continuing but also some that are a bit surprising in their return. Because of this I'd highly recommend reading this series in order, for while the basics of who people are and what has happened previously do get explained here, you'll most likely be lost here if you haven't read the previous books. This is partly due to the way the author so adeptly throws out things that seem to be a minor detail at the time but later gain much greater significance, and not every allusion to previous events gets explained enough to really give the reader a complete appreciation of the intricate storylines at play here. Even if it hadn't been obvious before, it's completely obvious by the end of this book that this series is telling a larger, likely finite story, with each book revealing just enough more of the larger picture to keep the reader intrigued and reading on.
In summary, I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who has been following the series and agree with what I've heard many say regarding this being probably the best one of all, at least so far. If you haven't read the previous books, definitely go back and start with book one to get the full effect of the series. 5 solid stars to a book that held me enthralled from beginning to end.
