The opening line of the summery is definitely right on, This is no Fairy Tale. In fact a good portion of the first half of the book was depressing to have to witness.
It took a while for the story to take off. The beginning really didn't give any clues as to where the story might go or the whole point of what was happening. When Jennifer finally was sent into faery it still seemed to take a while to get the point of things but the scenery was quite nice. There are some things that I wish would have been explained more like why Jennifer was now Gwynn (besides just saying that was what Rogue picked), and why she is pretty much a slave but still treated as royalty by most people (What gives her, her status exactly) Maybe I just missed it?. There is a ton of things happening in the story but the pace was all out of whack for the most part. There is a lot of world building and I did not enjoy Jeffe Kennedy's idea of Faerie. I felt the story was picking off, then crashed back down with the plot every where. I will not be buying the 2nd book, since this was a waste of my money.
Not sure, I was very disappointed. I am a regular reader and listener of audio, and this was a waste of my credit.
The reader was great. I was able to visualize the characters with her tone, emotionals and pains.
I would recommend this book, First the author is a great story teller, with true life characters, second, the series is one that keeps you sucked in until the end; third, the narrator is one of the great ones, who brings to life all of the characters in the novel, and the feeling of keeping you in suspense until the end makes this a great book.
Anna was my favorite, her character could have been someone I knew
She is one of my favorite Performer
I did, and it made me laugh and very sad. Did not cry, but the sad feelings stayed for some time.
Just completed Speak of the Devil, very deep breath regarding the last chapter. I felt very bad and upset regarding Anna's demise. Great book, with a lot of unanswered Q/A. Well built suspense, just wanting for it all to fall as expected for everyone. Great novel, with Mystery, romance, huge disappointment (not about the novel, but regards to a character)
My problem is that I start books in the middle. I started her series with the 3rd book. I was hooked from then on. I love the fact that she mentions Claire & Jamie (from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon) in her book. I was impressed with all of the Characters. I still have to listen to Dawn in the distance, even though I've listened to all of the other books (told you I have a problem). I hate that the series ended but what a classy way to go. I cried through the ending of the last book. I guess that is the reason I haven't listened to the 2nd book. But I will not provide any spoilers. Let me say with great assurance, If you liked Diana's Outlander series (I met her by the way & she signed my book from Claire, Jamie & Diana w/love. I love her) you will love these books. Please start from the beginning though. Great read. Kikienergy.
