This book really began to annoy me about two hour in.
it seemed the author followed the same plot from the first book; only super sized the scene
within the plot by three; more suicides, more devil, more marlboro cigarettes.
to me it was like every person you came across is a chain smokers.
the constant repeat of establish ideas, force me a few time to stop the recording, i found the story was difficult to listen to. Jack Nightingale You are going to Hell and you are a little psychotic.
This Series Orion by Ben Bova is one of the best science fiction series of all -time.
the author Ben Bova is one of the most realistic writer of sci-fi books; when looking toward the possible future of mankind and stretching the possibilities of our known or theorized reality.
a must read for the fans of The Iron Druid Chronicles; that will take you on a journey across continents and worlds bring forth a more evolve and interesting narrative within the series. old alliances broken are reforge as trouble comes at the druids from every-side; full of entertainment Oberon will keep you laughing throughout your listen. excellent Narration by Luke Daniels
A fun an easy to listen to narrative full of laughs and Molly Harper sense of humor that is present in her stories. Iris and Cal was new and to my palate a more interesting spin on Half Moon Hollow resident supernaturals.
from the beginning when john "Black Jack" Geary first woke up, i fell in love with his story. the fortitude and unexpected genus of both the author and his characters brought life and motion to the narrative.
The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 was well written, doing great credit to its genre that enhanced my expectation with unforeseen twist and turn during the main plot. there were also some laughs and unexpected moment that kept you at the edge of your seat... the way the author solve the situations has they arose was both believable and exciting
the "Ever After" is one of the best and most comprehensive and refreshing book of the Hollows series written by kim. Many things long talked about and speculated over were brought to light; showing the true power and emotional fortitude of Rachel when it came to making tough decisions that could either demonize her or humanize what she thought about herself. this was one of the book I eagerly anticipated for 2013 and it didn't disappoint,seeing the true faces of both demons and elves and the long war the raged for eons.
who started the war????
how was the lay lines created???
the strength and power of the wild magic... etc
I find that the books written by Michelle Sagara, are always complex and well written.
this book was not the exception, starting out with a surprise from the egg as it hatched in a magical conflagration. the assassination attempt which laid waste to kaylin's life, and the beginning of her trip to the West March with the Barrani high court. the character Kaylin found many complication centering around her journey to the West March unexpected enemies and allies. and the many fall-outs dealing with the Argonaut Barrani race entails. there were unexpected battles, where the very fabric of dimensional reality is threaten, newer and stronger shadows hunted the forest around the caravan, dogging the steps of kaylin and the lady of life; also we the readers were given a greater understanding of the role of the chosen and her awesome responsibility
Wonderful narrator,she brought the story to life
Jim has outdone himself with "Cold Days" the 14th book of The Dresden Files. for me i found 2012 as a slow year for science fiction and urban fantasy books; with only a few authors rising to the challenge of excitement, plot drama, and taught provoking characterization etc. Jim not only wrote an interesting and well taught-out continuation within an epic series, but as also taken the characters within Cold Days to another level of maturity, knowledge, and power. The Best S.F/Urban Fantasy Book of 2012.
In "Ghost Story" we saw the death of harry, and how his friends and family has grown and changed without him been there to support them; we also saw the many consequences of his actions in previous books, with the worlds of magic and the many territories belonging to the supernatural changing rapidly; many things were also eluded to and explained. book 13 was the beginning of the metamorphosis of the dresden files.
The Second Half
i found that all the characters in "Cold Days" were more mature and natural, allowing the story to flow at an easy, well develop pace; we saw many new beginnings, second chances and endings; also the expansion of the Dresden universe where many mysteries dealing with the island Demonreach, the courts of faerie, and finally the outsiders were explained.
i was happy to see how molly as turn her life back on track and as matured into a caring person, and competent wizard. BIG CHANCES FOR HER
His half-brother Thomas has also grown in support and love for is brother, it was funny listen to them argue. A WELL BALANCE LIFE
but the crown goes to the queen of winter Mab, who for me was the best character written about in the story; i now see her in a different light and dimension, showing the complexity of Jim butcher's Characters. JIM NEVER DISAPPOINTS HIS READERS....
The plot and storyline was unique; with only a few books written with so much depth on satanism and their cults. Many books may elude to Demons, fallen Angle etc. but the authors did a lot of research into the occults. i found that the story drags a lot in many areas of the book. like eating too much candy, good in small amounts but too much candy can be clawing; Maybe the abridged version will be better.
A good afternoon read for a vampire Paranormal genre;
i found the plots expected, but not boring so if vampires are your cup of tea this book would be a good read.
