I am so glad to have Mr. Marsters back! I really don't like to put in spoilers in my reviews so I am going to tread carefully. It is wonderfully action packed and full of Dersden one-liners. It seems like it might be moving away from the white council but waiting for the next book is going to be agony!
While I have not listened to many of these I thought it was a good solid story. Of course David Tennant does a perfect job. It makes me want to find out more about the 60's and England. Honestly, I would buy more of these but they are a bit pricey for the length. If you are a Dr. Who fan get it while it is on sale.
I have listened to this book a dozen times since I got it and will a dozen more. Honestly the story is out there in the dark immature places of slightly off minds. It is a little gross and raunchy. Beyond all that the story is well written and is a guilty pleasure.
I can't believe I have to say this but I didn't care for the book at all. It's like that one place where you live that everybody has been happy with for that last 20 years and then something changes and it is just operating on it's previous reputation. That is how I feel about this book. I really feel like the main character needs a slap. DO believe the other reviews that say it's repetative and add monotonous.
I have listened to all this series and find it very interesting. If you have never listened to any of these books it is a good idea to listen to Cast in Peril first. I like the lengths of the stories (although it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they were longer). The characters are colorful. Ms. Sagara has created a wonderful world. The narrator does an excellent job. This book picks up where the last one stops with alittle less action. The focus is saving Teala and the Green in the West March. There is a bunch of information about Barrani in this story including the "lost children", Teala and Nightshade. I only have one complaint I wish Kailyn would learn to make peace with her past more but I understand that she is young and seems to be trying to.
I love that dog! I don't know exactly where to start so much happens and a significant amount of new facts come out. Much of the story is about stalling Ragnarok and the mounting problems with the Olympians. Very enjoyable.
I'm at a lost. I thought the last line of the 4th book was the best ever but Ms. Jones may have topped herself. This series is exceptional. Each one is more entertaining than the last. This one is impassioned from the start. Mystery, action and paranormal all wrapped up with appealing characters.
I really enjoy steampunk novels. This is an inventive series with a good take on the supernatural set. The author seems to be very good at what she does. The characters develope well and there is a fair amount of humor.
The first book is actually ok. I have a hard time telling people this awful. For one thing it wasn't and everyone has different tastes. I have a problem with the way Gin ( the main character) whines through half of the books about a guy. A guy that she wasn't in a real relationship with just sex. The story line is interesting and the characters help carry the story along.
I actually read these books about 6 years ago. But I wanted to listen to them. This series is somewhere between sci-fi and paranormal. The setting is in Russia and that makes the whole book more interesting to me. There is one major plot that runs through all the books with 3 sub-plots. There is minor romance and tons of drinking. Many many interesting characters that make the story colorful.
I almost did not purchase this book because so many people did not like it. I decided i might as well see the series to its conculsion. I would like to say that if you remove Sookie's love life from the story that it's almost as good as most of the earlier books. I think if you listened to or read the others don't skip it.
