    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    L. Reiner says: "In Death Book 33.5 - Not Robb's best, but good"
    "Remember that this is a short book."

    I know many have judged this book poorly, but it is the shortness of the book, not the lack of the writer that makes this book disappointing. Having read two others in the series just as short I was expecting the disappointment, but was still looking forward to the book. It was fast and I longed for more, but it is still wroth the $$ like all the book in this series.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    "Bad Ending"

    Story

    I have to agree with others that the ending was not to my liking. I do not want to kill the ending for those who have not read it yet so I will not get into what it is that upset me, but I will say that by the last page I felt not as if the good guys had won but lost. It was very disheartening to listen to the ending. If you are like me and you start the series then it will not matter what anyone says and you will want to finish with the last book. YOU SHOULD, just be ready to boo the writer in the end.

    Darcy Gallagher has always believed in the pull of fate, the magic of legend...and the importance of money. She longs to find a rich man who will sweep her away - into a world filled with glamour and adventure, and the exotic life that is her destiny.

    LeftyMom says: "Bored"
    "As always Nora Roberts is a good read"
    Overall

    I do enjoy Nora Roberts books, but I only gave this trilogy a 4 because the reader does not do as good of a job as she could have. She does get better as she goes on with the books, it seemed to take her some time to put the feeling into the words that they need. All in all though a very good trilogy and well worth the time.

    Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

    Mary Kelley Oakley says: "Fantastic as usual."
    "Creation in Death"
    Overall

    As all ways J.D. Robb has been a good read, and the narrator does a great job in getting you to be able to see all the characters in full view.
