    With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways, and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better....

    "Surprisingly Good!"
    Overall

    Very good story- the characters were constantly evolving as events progressed. Although I felt at times that everyone seemed to be extremely stubborn and that a lot of their choices were very selfish, I guess that's not that different than in real life. At times the novel was fairly bloody & graphic when it came to injuries and rape but I'm still interested in hearing the first book and the end of the trilogy.

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    "Pretty Good"
    Overall

    The ending wasn't very satisfying but probably the most realistic given the circumstances in the book. I did find some of the characters a little annoying and felt they could have spent more time on the central love triangle, especially with more time spent on the men.

  • Podkayne of Mars

    Podkayne Fries, a smart and determined maid of Mars, has just one goal in life: to become the first female starship pilot and rise through the ranks to command deep-space explorations. So when she is offered a chance to join her diplomatic uncle on an interstellar journey to distant Earth via Venus, it's a dream come true - even if her only experience with diplomacy is handling her brilliant but pesky younger brother, Clark.

    Jack Ketterer says: "A Smart Kid"
    "Well written but lacking a good ending"
    Overall

    I know that this is not the original ending the author had planned but I still didn't like it. I do sense sexist undertones in the decisions of the heroine to abandon her calling to be a space pilot & embracing a love for babies, but I think it reflects the time it was written in. Overall an interesting book.

    Adrian Mole is 34 and three quarters, almost officially middle-aged, when Mr. Blair tells Parliament that Weapons of Mass Destruction can be deployed in 45 minutes and can reach Cyprus. Adrian is worried that he might not get a refund on his holiday. But that's not all that is bothering him. There's his odd girlfriend Marigold who has become distressingly New Age. And his son Glenn who is in Deepcut Barracks. Would Mr. Blair have been quite so keen if it had been his son manning a roadblock?

    Chi-Hung says: "Farewell, my childhood friend!"
    "Frustrating & boring"
    Overall

    This book is mind-numbingly tedious. It is like Bridget Jones without the humour. He constantly makes stupid decisions, the characters are not likable or believable. Overall a waste of time-I only finished it because I was driving 6hours each way to a family reunion. I'm glad this is the end of the series.

    William de Worde, the accidental editor of Discworld's first newspaper, just wants to get to the truth. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition. Browse more novels of Discworld.

    Glen Phipps says: "Classic Pratchett"
    "Long winded but cute"
    Overall

    It was not that terribly interesting or clever, it's an overlong telling of how the newspaper was born in this odd little world. As they come up with novel ideas like calling it the Times it tends to drag. Even unusual beings such as vampires and wizards don't make it better. I usually love british books & british humour but I found this one to be a bit tedious.

    The fiery Lady Talia resides in a castle of great strategic importance. With his eye on the castle, King Stephen wants to see her tamed. He assigns Lord Alex de Monteneau to protect the maiden and make certain she is properly married off, but Lord Alex quickly falls for his charge.

    Amazon Customer says: "waste of time and money"
    "Boring & Predictable"
    Overall

    It was difficult to get through the whole thing. Her voice didn't change much with the characters & grated as the children's voices. The ending was ridiculous and frankly I skipped to the end because I couldn't take it anymore!
