Another great addition to the LOTU series. Although I will admit I wasn't as engrossed in this story as much as the other ones. There was maybe a few too many side stories from other points of views going on for me to really get involved in the love story. With that said it is still really good if you are committed to the series, which defiantly need to be read in order. I did like the second half better than the first half. I personally would like to see the story of Torin.
I will admit that there have been books in this series that are a hit or miss for me. I loved Z, John Matthew, and Quinn's books. I didn't like Fury, Torment, or V's book. Yes, I know I didn't spell them right, hell I have problems with regular words no less names with funky spellings. As for this whole series it is tear jerker city and this one is up there along with the rest.
As per usual there is more than one story going on here, lots of arcing. The main one is of course is Tres and Selena, very sad. Then there is Layla and Xcor. This is the story I was looking forward to, but alas now I'm mad it is going in a direction I don't like. Then of course we have a new romance with the other twin, Iam and Mechan/Cotra. There is also a few parts for other varies characters. One is a new character, a girl named Paradise and I think she will have more in the future with the training camp, a good start for her.
Now, now all you reviewers that are harping on Jim Frangione, give the guy a break. First off, he still reads the same as all the other books. If he has changed the names it is not his doing, it is the author and the publisher you can blame them. Jim is doing his job. I thought he did the best he could with the names he has to work with. I work in Vital Records and you cannot believe some of the crazy names people come up with, and then try to pronounce them, impossible.
Warning this story is less than ten minutes long, with a preview of How to Train your Dragon for the remaining time. While this story is cute, I think this should have just been added to the end of the first book. I'm glad I waited for the semi annual sale to get it. I did not like the echo that came when Stoic talked, portraying how big he was, good thing the other books aren't like that. Read by the Author who is okay but is no David Tennatt (whom I love.) Although the preview of How to Train your Dragon is narrated by David Tennatt.
Explains a lot about how Cal progressed from his armor being destroyed to the new and improved creation that Cal built to destroy Ultra Weapon. Still funny even without much new material for the story line. I appreciated that he did not give up on his best friend, even if his best friend is a robot. Narrator does an excellent job of portraying Cal's wicked sense of humor.
I liked the first book okay, but there were things about it that was off putting and since the reviewers were saying the second book is better I figured I would give it another shot. Especially since I bought the first three book in this series unheard, but at $6.00 total it was hard not to. There was some really funny parts and overall it was better than the first book, there were still a few off putting parts. It's hard to believe how understanding Wyatt is. I did laughed my ass off when Sam turned into a dog. I also like Diablo the horse demon. The narrator has a weird voice, and she reads soooooo slow so I ended up putting my player on fast speed.
Another hot book by Suzanne Wright. The pages were steaming with this book. So if you are a fan of the series pick it up. I still love the first book best, with the third my least favorite. I wish there was a little more action, but for a romance it is great. I love the characters in this book and can't wait for the next couple to have their book, I'm hoping it's Ryan's book. Since it has been awhile since I read the other books and I did need a bit to remember all the characters, but the one I forgot most was Roni (Nick's Sister from book 3) although it came back quickly. I got this book/audio for $5.98 total using the Whispersync feature. Narrator does an awesome job.
Yup, I'm a sucker for a monster book/movie, but that doesn't always mean I like it, this one overall wasn’t too bad. Just like in fishing there is a lot of waiting for the good parts to happen, and in the meantime there is a secondary plot with a different type of monster involved. While interesting and I like the characters I'm only going to only give this 3 stars because there was some unnecessary parts to the story that was added that in my opinion detracted from the main story. I felt the story would have been better without it, especially the last five minutes of the book. Also some of the parts with the sheriff could have been deleted, especially the cockroach parts, that just didn't fit the story well. If you liked this book I recommend The Terror by Dan Simmons. Narrator does a good job, easy to listen to.
A great series, I recommend this to all who love children books. Book eight is as strong as the first books and I love so many characters in this series. Camicazi is such a crack up and I love her. She makes grown men cry. Such a fun adventure. Narrator is awesome as always.
If you like Shelly Laurenston's Pride series you are going to like this series. There are lots of new characters in this new book and I believe that if SL keeps writing this series they will each have their own book. As per Shelly Laurenston norm the characters are kick butt with sass types, which I love. There is lots of Viking and Nordic lore that makes for a boundless back story. This book leaves off not exactly with a cliffhanger, but with enough of one I'm dying to know what happens next. The narrator does a good job too. I think she was trying to sound like Charlotte Kane from the Pride series, and in my opinion she hit the mark. I have listened to Johanna Parker before and have always enjoyed listening to her.
Barely an okay story, I didn't get very involved in the story. I was not a fan of the heroine, if she wasn't such a stick in the mud and so naïve (naïve stupid not cute way) I would have enjoyed this story more. I thought the Duncan was a better character but there was no connection between the two and I just didn't care what happened to either of them. The big surprise halfway through the book did not fit the storyline, it felt like it was done for convenience over plot. I will not be continuing on with the trilogy, especially since I don't like the hero for the next book. Narrator does a good job.
This story is a little different than I thought it would be. The beginning starts out more as a Urban Fantasy but the story kept progressing into a Sci-fi. There was humor, action, interesting characters, and unique world building. The part with the coffee was hilarious along with a few other parts. I really like the concept of the house and totally want one for myself. I liked this story, but I do admit the ending was kinda a letdown. The book veered off into a direction that didn't quite fit with the main story, it almost felt like a different book at about hour 6. If this becomes a series I would read the next book, hopefully there will be more romance added to the next book. Of course, I know that the authors take there time building relationships in their series. I still like the Kate Daniels Series best. Same narrator as Ilona Andrews other works, although she read a bit slower in this book trying to convey a southern drawl. It was almost too slow.
