I really enjoyed the Immortal Rules, which had a unique premise and some interesting twists and turns. However, this sequel was somewhat lacking. I thought it was fairly dull in a number of places, and it was a bit too predictable. It took Allie too long to reach a number of conclusions/make logical leaps that the reader probably guessed chapters earlier. Like most YA books in this genre, there's romance but the characters shy away from sex, which is eye-roll inducing. I always find that kind of funny -- plenty of blood, gore and violence is just fine, but heaven forbid the characters do anything more than kiss. I can definitely overlook that juvenile aspect of YA books if the story is good enough (e.g., the Hunger Games), but here, the story really just didn't cut it.

I really enjoyed the 1st book & I adore the 2ed. Same narrator-awesome! Same heart pounding moments, adventure, crazy creatures who want to eat you & characters who make you invest all you have as you read. When I same "same" I mean quality. I mean what I've come to expect from Julie Kagawa. This book progresses w/ease. It's a fantastic 2ed installment. I can't wait to get the 3rd-it's preordered-that's how much I love this series.
Remind me again, where did I leave my ipod?
Right now, I am waiting for the third book in this series due out next month, (April 15th), and debating whether or not to listen right away, or wait a while and then start the series from the beginning. Hmmmmm. Decisions, decisions.
I don't think I can wait. The first two were that good.
I really loved the phenomenal performance by Therese Plummer. She really brought this series to life. I wish she read more of my favorite books. She's perfection.
yes - great storyline and performed very well.
When Sarin tortures Ezekial and Allison thinks he's dead.
She makes the characters come alive.
I was interested in this book. It kept my attention and the ending has me longing to read the third book. It is a very good twist on the nosferatu and I enjoy listening to it.
The book has a great story line.
Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators, I have never been disappointed by her.
They will do anything to find a cure!
When Ally found her old friend...Not a spoiler I hope...
The voices per character were distinctive
I would have to think on it...
haven't got there yet still trying to get past the Narrator's whispers...
Her first performance was Spot On...her performance in this book would be awesome if she would level her voice instead of whispering when reading the main characters voice.
If she reads the next book please please please speak up.
It was an excellent continuation of the journey for Allie.
The dynamics of Jackle and Allie coming together under a united front and seeing that she finally shows Z what she really feels for him. I have to say that I loved the ending.
I think that she is one of the best Narrators that I have ever listened to, and I have heard a lot.
I actually cried and laughed to the point that my husband thought I was a little crazy when I would just bust out with laughter.
LOVED< LOVED< LOVED this book!!!!!
This my Fav series!!
For me it kinda had a Hunger Games/ Divergent/feel, with a hint twilight (don't worry though the vampires don't sparkle ;P) . That totally doesn't do it justice, but this is definitely a MUST read soooo good!
Jackal, I love the bad boys of the story best, but really I love all the characters even the villains; which is probably the first time I could ever say that about a book.
Wanted to and did!! I couldn't out it down, good thing my job allows ipods because it had such an enticing story line and such 3dimensional characters you get sucked into the world!!
Well I think I have said it all but anyway, this is a must read and I HIGHLY recommend it! The story line is great, the voice acting is great and the characters are absolutely fantastic! Also it has Zombies... Who doesn't love a good Zombie!!! XD
