I didn't have any high expectations for this book but I was pleasantly surprised, I really liked the story and was completely sucked in. Paranormal lore creatures running into each other in the 19th century with a side of lust and passion...what's not to love? Firelight's heroine is Miranda a beautiful fiery red head with green eyes, she is the youngest sister out of three sisters, with a special secret ability. Miranda's father is ruined in the world of business and is completely broke and so her father sells her hand in marriage to Lord Archer who literally hides behind a mask because he has a dark secret of his own. The book is very mysterious and alluring, which I completely love in a story.
This book is credit worthy in my opinion.
I actually got very bored with the book, I only got it because of the 3 books for 2 credits, and I'm totally surprised because her highlander series and the new Dani O'Malley series are fantastic and this was very lack luster. I'm kinda shocked on how bad it was, not sure of it was totally the narrator, but she didn't help any ( I actually lived in the south for 6 years and YOUNG Sothern Belles did not sound like that) I'll eventually get through the other 2 books because it took up my credits....but if it doesn't pick up...I'll be disappointed.
This series was exciting and I was never bored. It was awesome to see a heroine with mainly all the power and she is a dragon to boot!. Sweet dragon in love with who she shouldn't be...very forbidden love. I say Yes very credit worthy.
Kresley Cole is still the reigning Queen of the Lore and PNR! I just love all of her books and I'm really looking forward to the next one. Fabulous one-liners, I love all of her characters can't to see Regin's or Charro's story. Oh and Robert Pettkoff ...(groan)...excellent as always.... Like I said I so want a personalized ringtone for my cell phone in your Lykea voice....hmmmm. I think in an installment of IAD all the Lykea should be gathered around in nothing but their tartans, that is just a total drool fest in my mind....hmmm. Kresley Cole is always credit worthy.
I agree, You don't want to like this book, its a dark and disturbing subject matter but it is very well written. The books bring out a huge range of emotions of being a captive in a human trafficking ring, going through training as a pleasure slave and falling for her captor. No one understanding Olivia, its just a great story and I would like to see a spin off with the two federal agents.
I loved the start to the series, I thought it was awesome and something new to the PNR genre. Everyone else seems to be doing vampire and werewolves and cyborgs were definitely different until you get through books 2-6. The whole series is pretty much the same story over again just exchange out the cyborg names and the human female names and its the same plot line over, and over again. Cyborg man by unusual circumstances runs into small human female ( I mean small none of the women are taller then 5'3!) and wants to keep her and start a family unit. Now the last installment Taunting Krell was the best by far because the author did things a little different, I hope she continues mixing it up and I hope she'll put a tall human female in the series as well.
It's just plain awful. You can predict the plot line from a mile away, very little character development. The main character Princess Elwytha is suppose to be some sort of warrior princess trained in several weapons, yet it the book she is portrayed as a whiny, immature, slow witted teenager that is pretty much always crying, which is a complete oxymoron to a person with combat skills. The narrator made the story even worse, it was like the story was being narrated by a female William Shatner, just terrible! Huge pass on this one.
Wow! it was an epic unexpected end to the trilogy. I think I am still in shock. I really can't say anymore, if you listened to the first two books then you are obviously getting this one and stay up all night ( like I did) listening to it. Emma Galvin you did an amazing job, you are my favorite female narrator.
Good Grief! I don't think I would ever come across a series that has too much sex it in, but this trilogy sure does. There is so much sex I feel like I need to take a pregnancy test! Too much sex can be a bad thing, if there is too much fornication it loses its appeal and it becomes nothing special and a very mundane act. The over abundance of sex was just too distracting for the minimal plot, this really only should have been one book instead of 3....but there is so much sex that it became a trilogy ( TA-DA). This last book was also a recap of Korum and Mia's differences from the first book. So if you are just in the mood to watch mindless Lorno on HBO or late night Skinamax on TV then this series is for you. For me I like the plot to be the main dish and the sex a side dish or dessert....and this stew needs more meat in it.
Drank a lot of caffeine today because I was up all night listening ( not smart when going a school field to the zoo the next day ) But I managed. This book was exciting and intriguing, I was never bored. I think Outlander fan's would love this series cause I sure do and can't wait for the next one. Credit Worthy all the way.
Please tell me I don't have to wait another year for the next book!!! Ends on a cliff hanger! not saying anything if your a Kresley Cole fan your getting the book anyways! ...And yes I am surprised what Kresley Cole got away with it the cave scene ;-) but appreciated anyways. Eagerly awaiting the next installment!
