After reading this second book of the series there is improvement and the overall feel of the story and characters for me, as the first one left me lukewarm and only mildly interested in continuing with the series in general.
Having chosen to read on I found a better understanding of Janet, she is tough, smart and compassionate. A well rounded character is forming and her relationships with the other characters are coming to life and feel more sincere. I look forward to reading the rest of the series now.
The daughter of an underworld goddess she is being trailed and monitored by gods, powerful dragons and others who are watching to see if she will realize the strength of her own power and if she will be able to handle it wisely or destroy the world.
After reading Fool, the first book of Pocket, I was very excited to see this second story of him.
He is still hilarious, snarky and loyal. And now with a monkey and a mysterious water creature.
Pocket is in Venice with a broken heart and in lots of trouble that he comes through with his classic bawdy wit. Othello is even here and its great.
A must read.
I purchased this book on sale out of curiosity. I Absolutely loved it and I gladly have purchased the second book offered here at this time and looking forward to seeing more if they become available.
Edward's compulsions have made his life a struggle that we can follow here as he bravely and with a childlike quality that makes him a wonderful character to read about. He doesnt actually overcome his disabilty as much as he learns to live with it and find friends, take chances in life and find some peace with a relationship with his father who cant quite cope with all of Edward's problems.
Enjoyable read I do recommend.
I must agree with the other positive reviews Ive read before I picked this story. Its heartwarming and an easy story to fall into. Rarely have I found characters that I felt more for and wanted good things for. It is rich with strong characters who overcome diversity and challenges, people who would be wonderful to know in life.
Yes, it was familiar but took alternate routes that made this a new and interesting version of Twilight. Nicely done.
The Narrator, referring to the character in the story not Eileen Stevens who did fit well for this audio.
Bonnie "turning" process and who caused it was fitting even if it were predictable.
The last chapter and how the "Narrator" put the possibility to a great conclusion of this book together.
I would not call this a spoof as I would interpret that to mean a comic version. I did not find this funny but an alternate version of Twilight, making this for me a different story altogether.
Of course, this is my one of my top favorite series. Ive read them all and they have been consistently a great read.
Another series by Allyson James, The Storm Walker series is very similar in the strength of the main character .
I also follow Lorelei King as narrator. I am amazed that she can perform Mercy Thompson very convincingly and then she can also perform male voices just as well and can also make several male voices different and distinctive from each other. She helps to make this book even better not that the story itself lacks in anyway.
Yes, I could not put it down until finished.
Ive only heard this story in Audio and it was really good. Commodore James has a great voice for this book, although, the southern accent was not quite right, I wish that had been refined a little more for this reading.
It had me spooked, sad, and cheering. Just what I was looking for.
My first listen of his narration. I could easily choose another of his.
Tyeson. Yes, he was the villian in this book but I felt that his insanity, due to genetics and his position in the community as a family member of such a prominent family was overlooked, ignored and forgotten in his damaged mind. Allowing him to torture and abuse anyone he chose and get away with it. By humans anyway.
It stayed interesting through entire reading.
Davina, I was taken by surprise by this character and the part she played in this story.
The explosion at the Diner.
Enjoyable read that pulled me in. Good story and characters. I look forward to reading more Lucy March.
This one had a slow start for me, it begins with Sarah's diary and it is read in such a morose and raspy way that almost turned me off to the book. As I hate to waste a credit I continued and soon enough I found it drew me in unitl I had to learn if it was insanity or true monsters that plagued these people. It got better and better so glad a stuck to it.
Hmm, I cant think of another Ive read like this but it was well worth my time in the end.
Yes, she did. She did translate the sadness and soul of the characters very well. You can feel the depression.
Oh I did cry toward the end when Sarah finally learns about how her daughter died and that she and her husband's love for her is very endearing.
I found slow areas for me but they were resolved quickly enough. A good spooky book.
Well, there are a few areas that feel rushed or could have been more complete. For example, in the beginning his realization that he could see ghosts was accepted by this injured soldier so easily was a little out of character for him and although this was a bother for me it did not stop this from being a fair story and I did download the second. I just ignored this and got into the rest of the story. Not Bad.
His first physical contact with the "mother ghost" . There is physical pain involved to his touching ghosts and this was a cool concept.
His bus rides and how his pride is hurt and I felt sympathy and his injuries.
A soldiers job is never done.
If you have been reading and are a fan of this series, you will know Loretta, Allison's mother. She is also a medium or seer of ghosts and she has the most adorable personality and I was very happy to read this addition in her voice and point of view. Endearing.
The best was that Loretta was the main character...and she is a "character" for sure. Fun addition to the series.
The floating Roasted Chicken was really cute.
Oh yes, as Ive been leading to in previous comments...this is one of my favorite series and this book is a cherry on top.
If you enjoy Molly Harper, Lucy March and that type of humor, strength in female characters and a "real feel" to relationships of all types then I have no doubt you will enjoy E. J. Copperman as well as I do.
