    Fledgling vampyre Zoey Redbird has managed to settle in at the House of Night. She's come to terms with the vast powers the vampyre goddess, Nyx, has given her, and is getting a handle on being the new Leader of the Dark Daughters. Best of all, Zoey finally feels like she belongs-like she really fits in. She actually has a boyfriend...or two. Then the unthinkable happens: Human teenagers are being killed, and all the evidence points to the House of Night.

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Richard Delman says: "A singular voice; a horrendous story."
    "Nicely Done!"

    If you could sum up Still Missing in three words, what would they be?

    Chilling, thought provoking, unique


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is written as a monologe from a patient to her shrink. Very nicely done. Its easy to understand the main character's actions and thought patterns in this form. Brings out her personality, which, while damaged, is also smart and witty.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first page had me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme reactions, but her humor made me smile and I could feel frustration along with the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a bit disappointed with the ending, the writing was fine, just wasn't able to appreciate how the mystery was wrapped up.

    Not likely

    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    Overall

    With such a long break between books, you would think she could have sat in a a writing class or two! Repetition, repetition, repetition....felt like she just did a copy and paste throughout the book. I don't understand how his sneaking around and hiding his relationship with Merona translates into Ailya's fault, and his excessive angst is mind numbing. Between the Mother's song and his whining, I wanted to drive myself off an overpass. Such a great story, her writing did not do it justice.
