I am an avid fan of both Dresden and Codex. This book steers away from the usual vampire/etc. hunting that started the series. I do miss the Carpenters but love having Molly still. Dresden's life has changed, the apartment, car, cat, staff, bracelet, etc. are all destroyed. As I read the book, I kept seeing hints of the Codex style creeping in.
As usual, it is a wild ride from start to finish. The only con was the final battle was 4 hours, ugg. But the end was worth the wait. The downside of any series is the cliff hangers and waiting for the next book to come out and it should be fascinating.
I am a loyal fan.
This was a fun book to listen to! I am always happy when there is not a lot of swearing/graphic romance. The interplay between all of the family members was great with some surprises. For a short book, there was a lot of story.
A lot of fun to listen too! The story is interesting from beginning to end. Starting as an orphan then she leaves her "street friends" to become a young assistant on a pirate hunting ship. The entire book focuses on the interplay between young friendships. The end did not disappoint me, I am anxious to listen to Jacky's next adventures.
The narrator was amazing! The cockney accent was sometimes hard to catch but that made it even more interesting to listen to.
It is so hard to put into words the horrors that were endured! I have read many books on this subject, my personal favorite is "The Hiding Place." However, I am so glad that I listened to this book. An other view of the atrocities that were committed. My heart ache and inability to comprehend the life in a concentration camp.
The set-up of the story worried me, I felt that it was going to be written for YA. However, the last half was very enjoyable. Alex is up against various enemies and pulls it out & saves the day, yada, yada, yada. Some are comparing it to Desden, certainly the dry sense of humor is there.But I am one of those who love both Dresden and Codex Alera and hold them up as the standard. I really liked Luna and hope that she continues to be part of the seriesl
I know, I know . . . they are all the same, but I still enjoy them. I always like when Clive shows up in each book. A lot of action as always. I love the banter between the Fargo's.
The language was bad, too many F words. The first half of the book was ok but I could not finish the last half. I enjoy paranormal books, but this is just a bad bomb.
My feelings about this book run from wonderful to boring. When Dr. Siri is home, the story is really wonderful and the mystery was exciting. However, when on his trip it was awful! I am glad that I listened to it and will listen to the book number 3. I really like the narrator, his monotone voice adds to the humor.
I hated for it to end! This is a sweet story to repeatedly listen to every few years. If only the world now would focus on "being good."
I was hoping for more story. This is a story, but it is just about the people, it is a constant narrative of names. So and so did this, etc., etc., etc.
I am crazy about this series and I hated it to end. This last book did not cover as many delivery stories but gave more details about the wonderful characters.
