This book is worth the wait, you wouldn't expect all the events that will happen here, you would think they will be continuing the search as all will think so. But no, this one is full of heart breaks, hearts unbreaks, death and surprises....
when i recall what happened here, i'm actually surprised of all the events... I would say its better than the first one..
Narration is great as always, Tavia is a really good narrator.
What is negative in this series is its length, the Cat & Bones books are longer than these ones, and I would really like if the 3rd book of this series would be longer .
So, another great addition to Frost's books, and can't wait to read the next book (which ever series its going to be from)
This book was good, I have enjoyed it, you get to know the folks at the desert spear and tend to know their back story and their future plans... it does have a different start than the first book.. so you will be a bit confused thinking whats going on here...
More and more things got cleared up and you get to know the enemy more and more... You get to be with the warded man and he get to face his past.
Now lets talk about what i didn't like in this book and in series in general:
- This whole series is based in a time where please speak that fancy old english style like in the wheel of times and so on, but then all the sudden you find modern slangs here and there.. it gets really confusing... too many modern and current time words for it to be based in such a time.
- Those folks from the desert spear... those are the basic description of Arabic folks who live in the desert .. nothing unique about them, no imagination, the women wear Hijab like the desert folks and a man can have more than one wife and so on... other books tend to come up with weird cultures and unique ones, nothing based on real current culture.. I understand that some of you guys would say ohh but its built on a life after the modern current age, thats why the modern terms are there and thats why the cultures are so similar.. I don't buy that, if that was the case then the modern slang would have stayed rather than disappearing, and plenty of constructions would be there rather than disappearing completely.
Again, too many similar things to make this book unique and enjoyable .. love the imagination that authors tend to have, but sadly, it wasn't so vast in this series .
I had this book for months, but kept on postponing it.. Its really good.. Not as jaw dropping as other big epic books like the wheel of time... but it is a good series...
I think that this series could have been one of those long series with several books to build the characters and the story plot... i'm not saying it was fast in this book, but it could have been longer with more characters and plots..... There were so many chapters were the author jumped for few years...
The Warded Man is based in a world were demons exist and attack humans every single night. People defend themselves by using wards and hide.... A boy grows up hating how everyone hides and no one attack those demons...
In general, I have enjoyed reading this book, and the character build up was good... its ending was very well and made me jump and purchase the 2nd book and read it already.
Really didn't like how things went with Gaia.... it just was too short too sudden... what??? 5 books for only one page of action??? it was annoying... really annoying.
other than that, it wasn't a bad book.... i just do hate such buildups and then... well you will see...
It could have been better.
If you ask me "Did you like this addition", then I say Yes.
If you ask "Did you love it", then its no.
If you ask "Why?", I'll say because it could have been shorter, and the ending was really really slow.... didn't really like that.
But i do think it was book 2.5 more than 3 as it prepares you for the next chapter or part of this series. Let see how things become.
Love this series and all the characters. Its always good, never a bad or an ok addition to this series. Darynda Jones is a fantastic writer, and Charlie is one of my favourite characters in all the books i read.
So so so many things ... you start with a small small thing like a goldfish and there is something as big as a ....... well, i can't say, you need to read this book. But you really get to know how powerful Charlie is.... Charlie... if you are reading this, mmmmm... call me, got few requests
can't wait for the next book.
For every book i read, I feel sorry for Mike... He never gets a break.. NEVER!!!! so many many monsters here, some are really interesting.. and so many changes in the story plot.
New enemies and new team is in as well.
But the ending of this book was refreshing and happy, you guys will like it....
This zombie series is really one of my favourites, and Mark Tufo is doing a great job in this series and in others, Mike is a very interesting character.
Short story after Steelheart and it was really good... you get to see how life is like after steelheart, and what new problems rise afterwards..... Really laughed when few weird funny expressions came up. Really enjoyed this quick read and it was satisfying. Waiting for book 2 in this series.
I have honestly loved this book, it is one of my favorites in this series. So many events so many twists so many changes.
Morgen was put into a tough spot, between a rock and a hard place and it felt like the world was against her. Demons, Elves, witches, werwolves, pixies and so on they all were involved and gosh how so many things happened here...
When i thought the book ended, it wasn't even close... I think Kim Harrison did a great job with this book and its ending was fantastic.
Loved it and loved this whole series .. Wonder if thats it or if there will be more of our lovely characters
This is different to what am used to by Jeaniene Frost, its not the usual vampire stories with the lovely characters we all love... Its a completely different theme and story, no vamps, but its all about angels and demons, and all i can say that it was interesting...
The main character "Ivy" has some powers were made her life hard, she kept on seeing other things around her, not only what regular humans could but supernatural things... that part was interesting a bit... but i don't know how to say this, the story was going a bit too fast. I do think that it could have been a bit longer so there could be more details, it did go really fast and for some reason it didn't feel right.
but the plot itself is very interesting, it is different than the usual books you read and there is plenty of conflicts between the characters, which i have liked.
I'm interested in how it will continue, so for sure will get the next one.
I would say that this book really displayed the evil-ish or lets say the dark side of Harry.... I love how always the starts of these books are really WOW moments, but this one was WOW * 3413413112344 .. My jaw was hanging when i heard what a certain person told Harry, and i think his reaction was even worse than mine.
What I love about this series that its not only the one thing happening, but its the too many things that are happening, so you never get bored at all.... And in this one believe me when I say you will never get bored for even a single second.
Narration is amazing as usual...... And the end of this book was one of the best and one of the most WOW moments I have experienced.
