This book explains a lot about Retribution. I was a little confused about the back story of buffalo and butterfly in that story, but it is explained fully in this story. It took me a little longer to get into this book because SK is splitting and adding to many diversions into her series and it is making it a little confusing. I think she should have created a completely different series for the stuff in Retribution and Time, Untime. I did like this story but it is far from my favorite, there was way too much back story and not enough time in the present to give the couple enough time for me to bond with their relationship and I would have like more heat between them.
This is what you expect from a romantic short story. A very quick romance with a wolf, that has a protective instinct when a stalker starts to cause trouble. This book is part of a series, although this annoyed me because I didn't realize when I bought the book. It can be read alone, but it does mention other characters and you can tell there is a story for them. Narrator was way to breathy, mostly because she was trying a little too hard to be sexy.
This book has more romance than steampunk but overall I liked it. Not a book I have to buy the next one and read it immediately type but overall a feel good type. This is a version Jane Eyre never dreamed of and of course the male hero is not married which is all the better. I liked all the characters, and there is a quite a lot of characters in the story. The story was smooth and flowed well. I wish there could have been more action involved but overall I enjoyed the story.
Okay book, the story and narrator both seemed abrupt. By the time an event happened I felt like somebody had been stomping there feet around me. Overall not a bad short story, just not great. I don't usually expect too much with novellas.
A different type of book. A bit funny, lots of action, a twist of steampunk with mystery, and rich characters. This is a story not at all for the prudish type. The book had both things I really liked and things that I defiantly didn't. There was lots of sexual tension between the main characters, although it does look like it will be a strictly business/friendship relationship on that front. I really like the steampunk genre and this is a good addition on that trend. What I didn't like was the tawdry sexual situation that came at the house party, it was almost enough to turn me off the rest of the series. I will probably read the next book, most likely I will wait for a sale. Narrator was very good. There was some complaints about his accents, I didn't notice them being off and thought he did a lovely job.
I really enjoyed this addition to Cinder's story. The author packs quite a punch with her writing. There are lots of side stories that culminate into a larger story. I'm intrigued with all the characters that each time the point of view changes, I'm engrossed in that part of the story. This series is good for young adults for there is no sex in it. It also works for adults too, of course I am young at heart so I read everything. Narrator does have a girly voice, but not too annoying and the story does make up for it. Defiantly read the series in order. I can't wait for Winter and Jason story next. Recommend listening to Suzanne Collins - Hunger Games series and Melissa Marr - Wicked Lovely series.
I have always had a fascination with the story of Jonestown. I remember as a teen watching a documentary on this story and just being engrossed. It is amazing what people will believe and do in order to fit in. We get to hear many different point of views from this book. It is written as if they were telling the story. I finished reading Helter Skelter not long ago and I thought Manson was crazy, but after reading this I believe Jim Jones was way more advanced in his delusions than Manson. So much abuse and mind control it was unbelievable that people get sucked into this, but it was so gradual it snuck up on most of them. The first hour or so is a little slow, but after that the horror and shock of what is unfolding will enthrall you.
3.5 overall for this book was not as good as the first, it was way less funny and the ending sucked. I am debating the next book but dang, I want to know what happens next. Although I have a feeling it will just make me mad. The story itself is pretty good but I had a bitter taste for the ending. Story started out fast paced and had potential, but the spunk and sassiness was missing and the side characters were more annoying this book. The mystery was easy to figure out, since I had doubts in the last book. Such a shame since I really liked Soulless that even though this book wasn't bad it was a let down from the first book. Same narrator and I think she did a pretty good job.
Okay story 3.5 overall, the story was mostly written as if reading a diary or thinking back on the past. I'm not a huge fan of this type of writing, but the story itself was pretty good. I did enjoy the first part better than the last. I love his alien dog. Considering this book was published around 1912 it is way ahead of its time and very imaginative considering there was very little of this type of book out for public consumption. Narrator was good but a little dry. This book and the next two in the series can be gotten for free with a Kindle/ Kindle app and then the audio purchased for .99 each with whispersync.
I loved the first two books in this series and I really liked this one but not quite as well as the first two. I was irritated with both Nick and Shaya because of their lack of communication and they were driving me insane with their stupidity. Of course there has to be some complication to make a book. But other than that the book was great, and I can't wait to see who will be in the next book. Phoenix Pack series will be an instant download for me and now the long wait for the next book commences. This series should be read in order so start with Feral Sins.
Another great one by JR Ward. I had looked forward to hearing John's story and it doesn't disappoint. This one and Z story are the best in my opinion so far. This series has taken me a while to really get into it, but I'm starting to want to read the books right in a row. This is usually a good sign how well I like the story. There are dark aspects to this book that might put some people off such as rape and gay relations. The editing sound is weird; occasionally the sound will switch back and forth from normal to a muffled sound. The muffled sound usually doesn’t last long though. Defiantly needs to be read in order start with Dark Lover.
