    The year is 2113. In Jenna Strong's world, ACID - the most brutal controlling police force in history - rule supreme. No throwaway comment or whispered dissent goes unnoticed - or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a horrendous crime she struggles to remember. But Jenna's violent prison time has taught her how to survive by any means necessary. When a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed, and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID, and try to uncover the truth about what really happened on that terrible night two years ago.

    Sydney Sage is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. In the Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once.

    Beware of spoilers.....

    I wish the whole book was Adrian's POV, he's so funny and...human.
    Okay, okay, Sydney was better this time around, but if she loves Adrian so much, her priorities are questionable to say the least.

    This series is beginning to sound like some parts of the VA series,
    when the main characters finally make love and soon after, one of them disappears . The next I expect will be the change (reeducating with the Alchemists) of Sydney, followed by her resistance due to her magic and finally.....well, let's wait and see what RM has for us in the final book.

    Still, the book is well written, entertaining, sometimes funny and sweet. Everything, or most of the things I like in this kind of series.

    I will definitely finish the series (two more books?).

But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    I already committed part of my reading time this year to the series (as part of my series challenge).

    That said...

    This one was well written I must say, The world building, the set up, all those flowery descriptions about everything and everyone.
    Even when said descriptions were in the middle of an action scene or between a question and its answer.....

    Going for the second in the series.

    Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the best-selling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison - even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life.

    This book was better than the last one......at least, the second part was.

    First half of the book.......Three stars.
    Second half of the book...Four and a half stars (getting to five there).
    Overall...........Four stars.

    However..
    The issues that I had with Cinder, were there. For example, the simplistic and not very bright characters. Don't misunderstand me! They're still likeable and I thought Cinder was much better this time around , Scarlet was a strong character but a bit predictable.
    I did enjoy the book and was entertained by it, so I'll wait for the next one. ;)

    Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy's deadly rules and brutal gangs. The worst was over. Or so he thought. But now he's trapped on the other side of the wall, in a different kind of prison. A town filled with familiar faces. People from Maxfield who Benson had seen die. Friends he was afraid he had killed. They are all pawns in the school's twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force.

    Not as good as Variant, a bit of a disappointment but still entertaining.

    It was fast paced and more action packed than Variant but with exasperating results.
    The characters felt like they were NOT the brightest crayons in the box, all of them, the humans, the androids.... even *spoiler alert* the alien. (Whaat?!? ,,,,,yep.). The ending felt rushed. like RW (or the publisher) needed a number of pages done and when he reached that number, that was it.

    It is not every time you can safely say "This book was worth the wait". Lots of action, a bit of humour and all the familiar characters you love to hear from.

    Looking forward to Mercy and Adam's next adventure.

    It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her 17-year-old sister, Penryn, will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival.

    This book was a nice surprise. It was unexpected and refreshing!
    It was rather late when I began the sample from Kindle. By the time I was done with it, I had to buy the book that instant. No choice! LOL! I was up reading it until 4 AM....still felt rather short, I wanted more! This was a very good read. I couldn't put it down!
    Let's talk about Penryn...this is a heroine that I like. And I rarely do like the story's heroine, I might like the book and/or love the series, but I always find that the female character lacks on this or that department. In my opinion Penryn is a strong character and a likable one.
    The world Susan Ee created is compelling, her characters are sympathetic and real. I fear I am not doing this book justice, but please pick it up and see for yourself. I'm sure you will enjoy every action packed page as I did. This was one of those books that you actually feel a loss when it ends. I'm already looking forward to the next book.
    I can see a re-read in the near future..

    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    Read from December 15, 2012 to March 04, 2013

    I don't know if I'm going to finish this one.
    It is depressing, boring and the writing is juvenile. The female lead character is kind of stupid and childish. All the hype about this, was only that, hype.

    Update. March 4th 2013
    I finally finished the thing.......talking about the agenda behind the Agenda.....Aghhh.

    Only to add that I have never wanted to actually hit a female character since Anna Steele......ugh. An emotionally retarded eleven year old would have been better.
    The dystopian setting was so badly done, it had contradictions and was full of holes.
    Don't waste your precious time (and credit) with this, it was torture.

    On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better. A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

    Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods. Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword.

    Kevin Hearne.....an Iron Druid short story, you're sold. Right? ;)

    Luke Daniels makes the audio version a delightful addition to your collection.
    Plus, we get to see a surprising side to The Morrigan. And of course, it is Kevin's way to set the pace for the next book .
    This is a very good short story and you will need to read it as a bridge to the 12 year jump between "Tricked' and 'Trapped'.
