I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It made my long commute to work not only enjoyable but I found myself looking forward to it. The characters were interesting and I really wish I could have gotten to know Sarah and Emily better. Some parts were a little predictable but overall I couldn???t wait to hear what happens next. You know it???s a good book when you find yourself dreaming about the characters. I am very much looking forward to the next installment in this series.
This one scratched all my literary itches. Vampires and witches PLUS loads of historical detail (love the history) AND time travel. AND the author writes beautifully. I can but implore the author to please write the sequel soon!!! Truly one of the best books I've read in quite a while. Highly highly recommended ... as long as you really like history. If you don't, maybe this isn't for you. It sure was perfect for ME!
I can see why this book is getting such mixed reviews. I think it needed a better editor to shorten up the plot line a bit. I got tired of listening to it several times but persevered through it to an enjoyable end. The plot lines are completely stolen from better books though - nothing original.
The book was definitely great. It had little history facts intertwined with an awesome story from a vivid mind. The narrator did an awesome job of using different accents and multiple tones. All around I found it hard to stop listening. I hope there is a second book in the making.
This kept me thoroughly entertained and engulfed - I kept wanting to hear more. I think it took a chapter or two to get hooked, and then I couldn't get enough. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I was really disappointed in the ending. I felt like it was quickly and carelessly wrapped up. I've heard now that it's a trilogy, but I still think the author could have done a better job with either a cliff hanger or a neater ending for this particular book.
Not having read the Twilight series, I am not burnt out on the genre and so found the book a fun listen. I do have a few reservations: I agree with the reader who dismayed over the Harlequin moments- the story can stand without so many, we get the point: he's hot, she's smitten. I was disappointed to find it was a part one of a series (as yet unwritten). That always makes me feel I have been led on....
I'm a sucker for this romantic supernatural love stories. It's definitely a guilty pleasure. This book fits in the same genre for Twilight fanatics and Sookie Stackhouse fans.
You fall in love with the characters so easily.
Some of the plot lines and story areas are flawed... but it's still an exciting read.
Good fluffy girly book.
I limit my audiobook time to when I am working in the garden or on a long drive. I found myself digging and weeding and driving because I was so engrossed in the book. Bad news; it is a trilogy and the next part is not due out for several months!
Although there were moments when i thought the writer dragged a little, I enjoyed the book and found it very entertaining. A good thing to escape to the imagination with.
This was a long, drawn-out story that had a terrible ending. It was like the author decided she was just tired or writing. After listening for all the hours I listened to the book, I was very disappointed that I wasted that much of my life listening to this book.
