I would always recommend a Patricia Briggs book to a friend. She is a solid author, and I love what she does. That being said, for me a series can only go so far. I'm kind of over Mercy. I love the world that was built for this series, and I love the Alpha and Omega series, I'm just kind of done with Mercy as a main character. I would love to see more spin offs! As I said, I love the the world, and I love the characters, I just don't want to ruin Mercy by getting bored with her story.
Excellent execution as always.
So, I knew that the author was a convicted sex offender, and that it had something to do with his children (step children??). But in his blog he said that he was in recovery and doing what he could to heal himself. So, I thought, ok, give the guy a chance. Bad idea.
I've read a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of zpoc books. Everything from the silly to the serious, and I can forgive a lot. But I have never NEVER come across so many references to rape, child rape, and violence on women and children as I did when I read this book. Seriously **SPOILER** a high school teacher keeping high school girl zombies in a room so that he can have sex with them??? What the actual?
I have a really hard time believing that this book wasn't a parole violation, and I would do anything to have books by this author stop taking up room in my "recommended reads" section. yuck.
I don't know, but I'm going to need a palate cleanser.
no, and I had no problem with the performance.
maybe just a couple of the rapists... Seriously, does this guy think that the end of the world will come and suddenly every man is going to go a raping?
What a relief to be able to *read* a story that appeals to us athiests. Not only is this a wonderful series with amazing characters, and a fascinating new approach to childrens lit, it's not bogged down with the same ol' C.S. Lewis style religious drivel. I didn't feel the creepy sticky undertones of christianity trying to reach out from between the words and snatch me up. Instead it is blatantly obvious and a very nice change.
Plus the narrating team is amazing!!! Really, a good time for all.
And if the kids can't handle their faith being challanged a bit, then how can a parent feel safe even letting them leave the house.
