I thought this was a pretty decent book until it all of a sudden ended. There is lots of build up then, just when it starts to get interesting it's done. It was like reading a book half way and then ripping the last half off and throwing it away. Very frustrating. Note the #1 in the subtitle, the author must have figure this was the only way she was going to get to #2.
But this book dies a slow painful death from the very beginning. Don't waste you time or credits.
I found this book hard to follow due to the number of subplots. It was constantly jumping from one scene to another, many of which either had such a thin connection or the connection was so deep in the book that it was irrelevant.
The book also ended suddenly without resolution, so it you really get into it, you have to continue to buy the rest of the series to get to the answers.
Less a zombie book than one would expect. The plot focuses more around a fictional area of the government focused on bringing down terrorists who are trying to bring the zombie creating plague down upon the world.
Not your average zombie tale, less ravaging of humans than normal. More the tale of a zombie baby rescued by a family and kept hidden. One day, he realizes that he is not the only one. Then Stony grows up to become a zombie activist.
This is definitely not a religious tale although this is a part of it.
Aliens come to earth and who do they want to see? Not the president, prime minister or the queen. Not the Pope, Dalai Lama or other religious leaders. No, they want to see a paleontologist, to help find God. The atheist paleontologist and religious alien work together to find God.
This is the final chapter of the Divergent trilogy and it does not disappoint. The continued adventure of Tris, Four and their companions while their world devolves around them and opens into a new world. Is this new world any better than the one they left behind? Only time will tell.
Which is surprising because I really like Sci Fi. I found this book to be rather boring and tedious. There were a few scenes that got my attention but mainly it was just droning on and on.
Another in the series by Jacquelyn Frank about demons & druids. This time the demon king has found his imprinted druid mate who is far from interested in commitment.
I have to confess, aside from the supernatural element, these books tend to be a bit like a harlequin romance, which typically doesn't interest me. However, since I listen to the books on my daily commute, I find the narrator of this series totally draws me in with her range of voices and emotion.
The only bad part was that it ended. An old romantic tragedy based on class differences of the old South in the antebellum period in New Orleans, leaves a mystery, legends, spirits and a beautiful home in ruins.
Fast forward to modern day where a Boston lawyer breaks his engagement and goes to New Orleans to by the home and restore it to its former glory. He meets the most interesting people in the process of restoring the home. In the process he begins to hear, see and dream things that happened 100 years ago. Can he solve the mystery, renew the house AND get the girl?
The characters are rich in creole tradition, the phrasing and behaviors are spot on for the area. Each character is believable and charming. An excellent read
This book was not exactly what I expected, however, it was very captivating. It is a lovely romance without being harlequinesque, sexy without being crude. The characters are very well developed and likeable. I found it easy to relate to both main characters. Overall, a well written book.
