Yes. It is a good book that has lots of strife, coming of age problems such as friends growing apart, faith in friends, and of coarse Nix!
I am not sure. Hidden is pretty unique in my opinion.
She gives personality to the characters with the inflections of her voice that really show just how much of a not-nice person Aphrodite is, yet you DO get a feeling that there is a nice person just underneath the surface that is just waiting to get out. I hope that a confrontation with her nasty parents will somehow bring about this flowering of her personality and show just how special she truely is.
Yes. Of coarse I am a bus driver so I got lots of time to listen to it in once setting...lol.
The thing I really liked about this book that is slightly different than the other House of Night books is that it really felt like a whole book. When I have read some of the others I get to the end and I am like WAIT!! That is it?? They are going to leave it THERE!!! This book has a good resolution, and still leaves you expecting something more, but yet leaves you with a satisfaction of things done. I would certainly read it again! :) I am sad that the next installment will not be out til 2013 though:(
I enjoy the snarky attitude of the main character. I enjoy the fact that she is a sort of hero, but not a goody two shoes. The similarities and differences between angels and demons is interesting as well. Good read in my opinion. I love that it is unique in its story.
Lauren channels the spirit of Jane perfectly. I cannot think of anyone more enjoyable to listen to. You get to see Gin and the struggles that she has been dealing with come to a boil, and just how deep the corruption goes within the city. Good read.
Yes...and I only say this because I am waiting for the conclusion of the story. I am hoping that all these pieces will make a wonderful whole.
I am patiently awaiting the release of Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. I am a big fan:)
I liked the dramatic sacrifice that one of the ten made. I don't wish to spoil anything by details but one of the ten attacks another, and yet another steps in the way of the killing blow... and the one who attacked is totally shattered by this emotionally.
Yes....but just barely. The betrayer is indeed obvious. They tried to throw ya off but it was a weak diversion. I don't know what kind of brainwashing they did to him but it is indeed deep. It does raise the question if you have read all the books then you start to wonder if the lorians deserved what they got. Sure they were good to the environment on their world, but they did seem to enslave the mogodorians. At least that is the impression that I got. Now the mogs took it a little far when they annihilated ALL the lorians, but they may have had cause. I really hate the way some newer authors leave the book off in a cliff hanger. This book feels like two or three chapters of a real book. lol. Reminds me of the house of night series..... *shiver* lol.
To the author..... make your books longer darn you:P Love the idea, the characters (even though you kill them a little too freely sometimes) I know it is a good book when you feel emotions for the characters there in, but I just wish there were more to each book. For the Reader: I would read this series but maybe wait until the series is finished or suffer the wait until the next one....like me....LoL:)
Mysterious Foreshadowing Illuminating
There is a part where Kaylin (sp heard the book, never saw the spelling for her name.) gained herself a name, which by rote implies that she is now Immortal, because mortals don't have NAMES (the deep can bind you ones). But at the time she also grabbed a second name, which is a key element in this book.
She totally gets the attitude of Kaylin, she personifies her completely to the extent that you start feeling her angst against things she cannot control. *lol*
Hrmm....No. I did get a little sad when the new mother was chosen, and was glad when the new lord of the court came forth, but no real extremes.
This series is getting interesting. Kaylin seems almost a force of nature. A natural power check on the re-awakening of the ancients perhaps. I don't know, but look forward to book three. :)
