I wasn't crazy about the novel. The plot seems rater archetypical and I missed the humor that I enjoyed so much in her succubus series. Maybe more of a teen novel except for all the sex scenes.
I'm enraptured by this series as good as Lexi blames thieves series & Yasmine Galenorn's Otherworld series! Read Georgina Kincaid first then vampire academy huge fan!!
I definitely enjoyed the romance, but the main draw for me to this book was the use of weaving a modern day woman in to ancient folklore and mythology as well as some pretty interesting characters. There are several different types of folklore being drawn as inspiration for this book and the main character gets to walk the path of many of my favorite cultural stories.
The main character Eugene, or Odilia, depending on which character is referring to her since she has a spiritual name, is definitely a strong female character with just enough emotional hangups to be believable. She's a strong fighter and there are some good fight scenes in this story, but she definitely struggles with overcoming personal hang ups and accepting who she is. However she does not become whiny or annoying, just introspective.
I will say this book took a little while for me to get into. The book had a somewhat slow beginning, despite the fast-paced action intro. There are some meaningful relationships that the author takes the time to develop, and by the time the book was finished, I was definitely wanting more.
Other than the bad language it was a great book, I'm interested to see where it goes from here. I loved The narrator she did a great job, I could always tell who was talking.
The concept and setting are good. As a reader I wanted to know more about the world and the characters in it. This is where it stopped for me though. The actual characters are shallow and lack real emotional depths making their choices seem silly and the intimate moments in the book feel uncomfortable and forced.
Eugenie kicks ass!
Dorian is the best character. You never quite know what's going through his mind or what his endgame is, but at the end of the day, you know he'll have Eugenie's back.
Forget What You Know
I love this entire series. Once Eugenie makes it to the Otherworld, the story really takes off. I couldn't put the book down.
I have listened to this series and it wsd getting pretty good although the heroine can be down rigjt stupid sometimes. I would recommend this series but I have just finished the last book and I hsve to warn that there is no ending. why start a series not not end it? shed gone to write other books but never bothered to finish this with a note on her website that says thus is the ending so far and thst she would like to write another book. if your ok with a permanent cliffhanger listen to this if not dont bother. I wont be listening to any more of her books in case this happens again.
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
Unique, Interesting, Entertaining
The main character is my favorite. She is strong and is on top of everything, but maybe someone could give her a day off in the near future?
Love Jennifer, one of my favorites.
Storm Born would be a good name and making this into a movie would be great.
If you like paranormal or urban, give this a shot. There is a little romance, but not much. More story and who/what done it than who is trying to sleep with who. Its an enjoyable read.
I could not get into this book...I stopped listening half way through and will not continue on with the series.
