If you’ve never read/listened to this series, I highly recommend you give it a try. Nikki is the descendant of a god, Artemis to be exact. Artemis is a moon goddess who can’t miss what she is aiming at and is an excellent tracker. She is born mortal, but if she kills an immortal descendant, their immortality will pass to her. One such immortal, known as Liberi, commits suicide by jumping in front on Nikki’s car. This kills him and give Nikki his immortality There are two groups of Liberi that we see throughout the series. Anderson’s group, which consists of both Greek god descendants and descendants of other gods like Kali and Loki. There is also the Olympians, which consists only of greek gods. Their goal is to rid the world of Liberi from the other gods. Anderson’s group has many more morals than the Olympians, which have next to none. Nikki is forced to join up with Anderson and his team. This will give you some background on the series.
In this book, Nikki is being tormented by either Konstantin, the former leader of the Olympians, or Emma, Anderson’s estranged wife who has joined the Olympians. The confessions of the torment claim to be Konstantin but don’t appear to be his style. There is a lot of evidence that points to Emma as the culprit. Emma is convinced that Nikki is after her husband, which is not the case. We watch as Nikki works to uncover who is burning any building that is related to her. She is kidnapped and “killed”, she gives the EMTs quite a scare when she returns from the dead. We see more interactions with Cyrus, Konstantin’s son and the current leader of the Olympians. Nikki is also having complications of jealousy from Sita, a phantom tiger that belongs to Jammal, who Nikki is interested in.
I love this series and the characters. The world is extremely interesting in it’s simplicity and the layers that are uncovered the more we learn. There is some romance, but it is barely blooming and in this book in particular, we see Nikki might be moving towards a love triangle with Anderson and Jaamal.
While this book is action packed, it still seems like a bridge to me for a bigger storyline to come. There is a pretty large cliffhanger at the end of this book that helps me to believe in the “bridge” aspect of this book as well.
I’m sure many of you know Sophie Eastlake, the narrator. She also does the most recent Chicagoland Vampires and all of the Elder Races series. She is a little bit flat in her narration when compared to some, but it works really well with the calm and collected Nikki Glass.
If you’ve haven’t tried this series, I think you should really give it a shot. The first book is a little slow because there is a ton of character and world building, but book two is wonderful and this book is helping to build to something big coming in book four, I think.
I enjoyed this book, although "Gideon Speak" could get annoying at times. I really liked Scarlett. She had a great personality.
I enjoyed this book, but very disappointed in the ending. I am sure that Gena has a plan for why this book ended this way (or at least I hope she does). I will just have to wait and see where she takes it.
I really like this series. Sabin is not one of my favorite characters and I really did not like Gwen at the beginning. I thought she was very weak. Her doubt in herself was a little annoying after a while. I like her better once she start to believe in herself. There was a lot of Anya in this book and I like the harpies.
Also, Nix from Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series makes a very brief appearance. I am wondering if we will see more of her in future books. She is one of my favorite characters.
I love Jeaniene Frost and all of her stories. This one was no different. It was great to see a different side of Vlad and I love Leila. She is doing great job keeping Vlad in line as much as she's able. I would love to see more of Cat and Bones (who have about a page in this book). I hope that we will see more of them in the next book. I do wish we could have Vlad's point of view.
All around great story.
There a lot of things I liked about this book. I love the opening line, "My name is Gin, and I kill people." That's got to be the best opening line to a series ever.
It is a different story than I have been reading, it nice to have a book that is not about vampires and shifters, as much as I love them. Yes there are vampires in this book, but they play an extremely small part to the story. There are things that drove crazy, there a few things that are repeated a little too frequently. But over all, a great story. I can't wait to get the next one.
I keep trying to read Molly Harper books. I've heard such great things about them. So I try them when I'm looking for humor. They just are not what I'm really looking for. They aren't bad, but I'm just looking for something different. I've found that I do better with them as audiobooks. I can listen while I do other things. I do catch myself chuckling out loud at times. There is a Simpsons reference in this book that I loved. Overall all, this book is okay.
A great new werewolf urban fantasy. The plot has several twists and turns. The characters are well written. Jessica is a wonderful and strong heroine. The end is a cliffhanger. I can't wait to see where the story goes next.
In this book, we get to see all the characters we've been missing for a while. While Zee and Stefan, make a small appearance, we see more of Kyle and Tad. We also learn a lot more about Tad and what it means for him to be half fae. We also learn more about Mercy's coyote side. Adam is still a little overbearing for my liking, and Mercy's too, I think. I would like him to start to see, that while he really wants to protect her, she isn't a person to stand around and wait for someone else to save her friends. He wouldn't love her if she just sat on the sidelines or screamed and ran the other way every time there is trouble.
This book isn't without loss. We do lose a very important person to Mercy and her friends. Even if this person was a minor character to the book, this person was very important to the other characters. This character will be missed.
This is the story of how Anna and Charles meet. It is a short story, originally part of the anthology "On the Prowl". It could also be purchased as a stand alone novella. Great story with great narration.
I love Vlad. I always have. He pissed me off on many occasions. The book is slow in a few spots, but overall it's a fast read. It is a typical Frost story. No Bones which made me sad. We do have some Cat.
