I decided to read this one because of all the positive reviews I read here and I have read Ilona Andrews, The Edge Series, Im completely addicted to those and look forward to see more come out.
But this one just did not keep me interested. It was a tedious listen for me, the characters and storyline just did not have enough personality to make this a good read . Ill just stick to to The Edge and I rated this as high as I did because of the other books.
Really??? Im so disappointed after reading a series Ive always looked forward to each new installment and enjoyed them so much to having them end this way. I can compare the feeling to expecting Fourth of July Fireworks that only result in firecrackers and sparklers.
I was hoping for a bittersweet farewell to an old friend Sookie Stackhouse and all the characters introduced in the series Ive loved so much and vested so much time to, this was a very long series but was left with complete strangers instead.
Was Harris bored by the end of the series?
Johanna Parker's performance was the most redeeming factor of this book.
I did have fun listening to this book. Amanda Ronconi could read an instruction manual and make it a blast to listen to so this book does have that.
The story is an everyday romance story of a couple who meet, have angst for each other with undertones of deep attraction they resist until they finally submit to all the heated temptations and end up in the relationship we all know is going to happen.
The differences here is that Molly Harper is an Ace story teller as much as Ronconi is a terrific reader, they are a great combination for entertaining books.
I did not find this to be the best of Molly Harper, just a little taste of the quality she normally shares. If this is your first Molly Harper novel, dont judge by this production, you will enjoy it but she has provided much, much better.
After reading this second book of the series there is improvement and the overall feel of the story and characters for me, as the first one left me lukewarm and only mildly interested in continuing with the series in general.
Having chosen to read on I found a better understanding of Janet, she is tough, smart and compassionate. A well rounded character is forming and her relationships with the other characters are coming to life and feel more sincere. I look forward to reading the rest of the series now.
The daughter of an underworld goddess she is being trailed and monitored by gods, powerful dragons and others who are watching to see if she will realize the strength of her own power and if she will be able to handle it wisely or destroy the world.
I have read this series and although I have enjoyed it and am interested in learning how things turn out for Kylie, I am hoping that in future additions to this series that the story itself moves along a little more. Some issues and questions are dragging out a bit and resolutions to some of these are long overdue.
Im hoping that future installments contain some conclusion or even new areas to uncover or I may lose interest and let the remainder of this series go unread.
Wow, as if being a teenager dealing with the threat of her parents divorcing and having concerns about her own sanity because she has horrible nightmares and sees ghosts, now she is sent to a camp that she thinks is a punishment for a misunderstanding of events at a friends party. But the camp is not punishment, its a camp for teens who just happen to be supernaturals learning about their abilities as werewolves, witches, vampires and more and how to live in a human world and be accepted.
Kylie is certain there are no such thing as supernaturals much less that she could be one herself. But she may be wrong about that.
Its a good story, the characters are interesting and I look forward to following the mystery of Kylie discovering which boy she will choose to learning just what it is she may be.
Everything to love about Mercy is here and still going strong. My all time favorite series and it was torture waiting for this book but it was well worth it.
This was not the most intriguing story I have ever read, it did drag slowly for me in a few areas but wading through was worth it in the end. An experience from the view of the ghost is a different outlook and interesting.
The two souls do find each other and is sweet and heartwarming in their relationship.
The ending wrapped this story up in a wonderful way and reading this book to get to the finale was well worth it. Joyful relief and long awaited answers for our ghost heroine are her rewards. It left me with a happy heart.
I have chosen a few books that had gained rave reviews and I was disappointed and left wondering if I had read the same books they were cheering about...this one however did live up to the Hype for me. It did remind me somewhat of Hunger Games, another of my favorites, in tone and it involved teenagers living in a desparate world and making extreme choices with maturity and courage.
My own children are older than the ones here and this ole lady still liked it. I was entertainted and drawn into the story very easily. I look forward to reading this entire trilogy and would suggest it for others, teen to adult.
I just love watching this family on t.v. and now I have really enjoyed this book too. It gives a bit of background of Willie and Jace's younger years, a bit of information of the early marriage of Phil and Kay. It is entertaining and also has a few recipes included. A likable read.
Mark Tufo can tell a story that I have not enjoyed this much since Stephen King books and I love those.
This first novel reminded me of Hunger Games as far as the "games" are concerned and the attitude toward the fighters are no more than objects to be manuevered around but the Aliens are taken by surprise at the drive for freedom and the will to survive that has the humans make some moves on their own.
Sean Runnette does a menacing alien voice. Just great.
