I do not feel bad for Jeannette what so ever. She is so God awfully spoiled that its hard to like or feel for the character. Earl Darragh O'Brien is way too good for her and I honestly would have been urghing him to find someone else to be his wife. So Jeannette is shipped off to Ireland after her deception was revealed in Husband Trap out of shame from her family. Jeannette is staying with much older cousins in the Irish countryside, which is completely borning for her royal highness who is used to being the belle of the ball in London society. Jeannette is constantly looking her nose down on people and throwing her title around like Ireland should be so lucky to have her presence of being a true English born lady. Jeannette is attracted to an architect who is rebuilding a wing of her cousin's house. They have few run in with stolen kisses and what not but he could never be a suitable husband for Jeannette because of his lack of title. One night while Jeannette is hosting a ball at her cousins house she goes too far with O'Brien and were caught red handed by all of her male relatives, That was a funny scene. Jeannette being publicly compromised she has no choice but to wed Darragh O'Brien, oh boy does she throw a fit being force to marry an untitled man, but the jokes on her cause he turns out to be an Earl of Mullholand which makes Jeannette a Countess (not like she deserves it). O'Brien teaches Jeannette a lesson by letting her believe that she is married to a poor man and they live in a small cottage where Jeannette is forced to cook, clean and sew for several months.
The book have a good story line I just can't feel for Jeannette, I just want to constantly smack her. I did like Husband Trap and Wedding Trap better because they had more of a likeable main character. But you must tread through this book to get through the next. Like I said it is not a bad book or story line, you are just going to hate the main character.
I love paranormal series and this was a great one. Of course its a Young Adult series, but I was never bored it kept my attention through all five book. I did get annoyed with characters from time to time, but that's a good thing. I rather feel annoyance towards a fictional character versus none at all. All the characters tied together in fate all go through a long journey of self evolution, great character development and very well written. Very Credit worthy in my opinion.
Way to leave everyone hanging! Besides the abrupt end the book is fantastic. Natalie a 24 yr old grad student/ farm girl in Nebraska is adopted and searching for her biological parents. Her search has her roots coming from Russia. One night Natalie was out with her friends at a campus bar, when a dangerous mysterious man walks in that catches Natalie's eye and her life is forever changed by the stranger that knows Natalie's true identity. You can cut the sexual tension with a knife between the dangerous stranger Sebastian and Natalie, its a very cat and mouse alluring. The question is who is really the Hunter and who is really the prey?...just delicious!
The story line had the potential there but it just didn't deliver. 17th century female spy Cassie Fox is sent into France to rescue a imprisoned English lord and return him to his family. The plot is interesting but it just fizzles out, there is no emotion, or struggles, it seem just to be a reciting of actions and that's it. No depth or development into the characters, and if you don't care about the characters then why would you care about the story. I would pass on this one.
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.
