    This poor guy manages to figure out the worst way to mess up perfectly good situations, or just manages to mess up right when he almost figures stuff out. Also... he is just plain retarded. like... make a synthetic mind, put it in a body, turn it on, it attacked you, so you try talking to it? wtf? why you so surprised that it doesn't stop and continues to attack you... haha it just got hilarious after the ninth or tenth time. He also has the comprehension skills of a child...No, that's insulting children. damn why am I writing this? This book sucks. and im barely to the 20th chapter.

    The battle for Echo Hold begins, the Uyumaak throwing their might at the fortress. The birth of the Holy Child draws near, and the Chalaine and Padra Athan try to prop up the Ha'Ulrich's failing courage so he can face Mikkik when the time comes. Gen, still separated from the Chalaine, watches from a distance, fearing treachery, hoping he can save her from Mikkik and the incompetence of her cowardly husband.

    Story

    This book is just fustrating. The romance is horrible and the ending was annoying. Rather than the pathetic excuse that we got I would prefer the main character die like the sad bitch that he was. He got jilted, watched the person he loved get nailed by somebody else, and through it all he still loved them? This should be a different version of a damn Bible, not what I wanted in a book that started our really good. Ended up hating it, which sucked as I liked the beginning, but all the forgiveness and love and sacrifice and love and sacrifice and death and sacrifice, ya that's how the story goes, it just got annoying. The main character ends up as a little babe, smiling at the world even after seeing the girl he loved die horribly, letting the man who messed up the lost live, marrying the girls mom, ya this book sucked towards the end. Do no consequences? Ha. Anybody that went through that shouldn't want to live. That would have been better than what we got.

    Konowa Swift Dragon, former commander of the Empire's elite Iron Elves, is looked upon as anything but ordinary. He has murdered a Viceroy, been court-martialed, seen his beloved regiment disbanded, and been banished in disgrace to the one place he despises the most---the forest.

    Struggled to finish it. The main character never makes his own opinion or action counts. He never disagrees with people or fights to make his own actions be his own... gets old listening to people rip him to shreds and he takes it like a little bitch. Seriously, can't be a heroic leader if you bow your head, say your wrong and ask for forgiveness. Then walk around depressed cus he can never be right. Then the bloody mixed race thing is bloody retarded. What's the point of having mixed races of they all are obviously less than humans, with the point of being a different race not at all important. Wouldn't different races be different? Like lions and tigers? Hell when they breed aren't the results less than optimal? As in sterile? So what's the point?

    Winter 1763. Alec, Lord Halsey, is sent on a diplomatic mission to Midanich, imperial outpost of the Holy Roman Empire, to bargain for the freedom of imprisoned friends. Midanich is a place of great danger and dark secrets - a country at civil war, ruled by a family with madness in its veins. For Alec it is a place of unspeakable memories from which he barely escaped and vowed never to return. But return he must, if he is to save the lives of Emily St. Neots and Sir Cosmo Mahon.

    If the main character would've told the truth and disillusioned the idiots around him then a bunch of problems would've been fixed. Rather than let naive people continue on and mess up stuff and get people killed or whatnot, they just told them to shut up and told them they were idiots, and say no rather than let selfish little bitches continue on, the this book wouldn't have needed to be written. Then it would have made sense.

    As Vieliessar confronts the first waves of the forces of Darkness, her destined Bondmate, Runacar, leads a rag-tag group to war. For centuries, the Elves have hunted the Otherfolk - minotaurs, gryphons, dryads, and more - considering them beasts. But they have a complex society, Runacar discovers, and though he is an Elf, takes it as his mission to help them reclaim their lands from his former friends and allies.

    The main male character just suddenly had no qualms about murdering his own people but sobbs when one of his new friends dies? Wtf is the difference? It's like he's suddenly has a heart. But it only works on the beast friends, when he kills a member of his own race, no problem. It's just doesn't make sense. He used to be their general. Now he's doing his best murder them. it's just confusing and not fitting together. I can understand feeling bad for battle, watching friends die. But it's so Cold hearted towards one side it's confusing.

    Goodish series. Problem was, the religion that was supposed to be a catalyst for making people be peaceful and nice ended up making people hard and cruel. By halfway through the book, which was all I could stomach, I hoped all the people in the church would just die. Painfully. If you can save someone from getting raped and tortured but only stop because of religion, you fucking deserve to die. Stopping from killing because the person might be redeemed to me is the Pinnacle of stupidity. we make our choices. Trying to sugar-cote the problem with religion means that the "God" is just a cruel bastard who should get ass raped and tortured just to figure out why it is necessary to stop it. Any fucking way possible.

    Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church hierarchy think she's far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she's no closer to ending the men who destroyed her familia; in fact, she's told directly that Consul Scaeva is off limits. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia's suspicions about the Red Church's true motives begin to grow.

    DeathWizards have been the scourge of Talohna for over 5000 years; they are executed at birth or hunted to the death. There are no exceptions. Pulled by magic and blood sacrifice into a world he can't possibly begin to understand, Kael Symes soon finds himself the focus of a Talohna-wide manhunt. Desperate and trying to stay ahead of ArchWizard Giddeon Zirakus's execution squad, Kael soon discovers that Talohna's ArchWizard may be the least of his worries.

    Excellent story, loved it even. Strong world building and lots of grey characters that feel real. Except the main character. He almost ruined it for me. He has the problem that arises, at least to me and that occurs a lot in recently written books by many authors, and it is that he's afraid or remorseful of taking life, inexplicably so. I understand the need to be human and good... But there was a scene, and spoiler's, where he took bullets from some gang members instead of shooting back because he didn't want to see death... that in itself I can understand. But his wife was with him and she nearly died. That I don't. You protect those you care about, not die for a belief that will injure others. Happens again and again through the story. Stupid mistakes he makes that get others hurt.. and all he can complain about is how much this place sucks and how he can't be a good guy. And then he feels bad because others got hurt. What!! The author probably had his reasons... it was too weird for me. Cannot stand cowardly or saintly main characters... the reader has to be off like mind to enjoy it. And that's not me. It was hard for me to connect with him, couldn't really feel sorry for him at all, which was opposite of what was intended. But other than that.. loved the book. Probably will buy book #2.

    This special boxed set edition is for all the fans who requested actor Alex Wyndham's narration of two of Lucinda Brant's best-loved books, Salt Bride and its sequel Salt Redux. Also included is a 20,000-word bonus novella, Salt Angel, featuring well-loved characters from the Salt books.

    Pathetic. Don't know how this shit gets so much attention but damn if somebody is an ass and people just let them flow like it's no big deal, it gets really annoying. I might be looking at this from the wrong angle, but assholes aren't​ that awesome of people. They usually turn people off, but according to this book people dig them, especially hot beautiful women, so idk. But it was a bit too thick for me.

    Career diplomat Alec Halsey has been elevated to a marquessate he doesn't want. His lover has decided she won't marry him after all. What's more, the suspicion that he murdered his brother still lingers in London drawing rooms. So returning to London after seven months' seclusion may have been a mistake.

    Struggled through the damn thing, mostly listened for the time period so I'm to blame. The main dude is a retarded fool, who you could like, but mostly, idk not man enough to follow his conscience or internal desire. He's follows the old saying is that good intentions don't necessarily mean anything. Sheesh he just got more pathetic through the story. And ya, I know that the poor girl was in a shitty relationship and stuff but the way she treats the dude and how they act she more or less, in my opinion, so I'm probably going to burn in hell for this, deserved what she got. Jesus to act like a public, in this time frame, whore when your always mad at your boyfriend for not loving you is so fucking retarded. So ya, this romance shit isn't for me. Love that time period so I was hoping it would be different, but nah, not for me.

    It's not easy being king. Especially when you've got an allergy to sunrise and sunset, a fire goddess for a mother-in-law, demonic adversaries, random assassins, and a basement full of insecurities to cope with. Add to that his daughter, the fire priestess/princess; a couple of lightly deranged professional magicians; a whole city full of wizards; and enough squabbling princes to resemble a kindergarten argument. It's enough to make a man want to just go home.

    Overall

    See other peoples reviews for the story... Which is ok, but the main character is such a joke of a man. Hell, he says it over and over, but he doesn't do anything about it. And how he plans on relationship, hell doubt he has any self respect. Sharing a woman, planning on her to not meet expectation.... what? Damn he was pathetic. And also he kinda human supremacists, like his son was murdered by a goddess, who broke his girlfriend's mind, and his daughter serves that same goddess that murdered her twin brother, so he should be mad right? Nah, he loves his daughter, she's perfect. He doesn't do anything about his son except for one good scene, and then nothing. But damn some goblins and elves hurt his horse than damn, I'll murder the f*#k outta them, experiment on them, tear their souls out as they scream, and causally use one of them to house the soul of an old friend without a second thought, screw their opinion, their bad people.... Weak. Over and over he does that... I liked the premise and even the first book. But I didn't like this one. Hell can't even finish it, just barely got halfway through it. Fustrating.
