I like the characters and story, but they spend so much time telling you over and over how cool they are it drives me nuts. For example, there will be an interaction where one of the characters acts really bad ass, then the next scene will be another character telling the story of that same interaction to his buddies.
Also while I'm intrigued by the story line, each book seems to be such a tiny chunk of the story. It makes me feel a bit ripped off.

I love this book. It reminded me a bit of KAs rock chick books in the language used. The female narrator rocked but the male narrator was sooooo over dramatic! He sounded like he was narrating a scene with a ticking time bomb all the time.

All the action and sciency goodness of the martian in a well developed lunar world. Rosario Dawson does a fantastic job, but now if they do a movie she will have to star as Jazz cause I cant picture anyone else!

I really liked the world and the plot of this story but both the heroine and the love interest were so annoying! I wanted to throttle them both, yet I listened to the whole book waiting for it to get better because I liked the plot.
She willfully ignores whats going on around her and to her. She has magic - but wont aknowledge it despite destroying 3 schools? Then people are answering her thoughts and she just brushes it off. Then she finally tells someone about it, and it feels like an after thought, and neither of them really react.
Also, she never asks 'why'. That might be what bothers me most. Any normal person would question things. Especially once she knows that everyone around her knows what's going on and she's still in the dark. As if any orphan wouldn't at least ask who their parents are to the person that knows. Or why she keeps blowing stuff up!!!
I think this characters lack of questions is an artefact of the authors attempt to keep the reader in suspense, but it's lazy. In a world of magic it's super easy to explain almost anything, like a spell to limit her curiosity or something. Or at least have the other characters avoid her questions.

What a rip off! I liked the book, but it just stopped after 4 hours. Insert another credit to continue. The rest of the book is split into 2 more roughly 4 hour 'books' and I wont be buying them, or anything else by this author again.

This guy wasted 3/100 tips on 'set-up a you-tube account', 'add a profile pic' and 'upload your video'. It is totally obvious stuff you will find on any quick, free guide online.

This book was well written and I loved the characters, but there was zero plot! No obstacles, no story arc, no climax. I kept waiting for something to happen, then all of a sudden it was over. Two people fell in love. Authors - you can do better, and I really hope you do because I like your style.

I liked the characters, though at times they seemed a little disjointed, especially Swan as she was at times afraid and the next minute fearless, naive and blase. It was like she was trying to be everything but it didnt quite mesh. Smoke was hot, dominant, protective. He was a simpler character but it worked for me.

The dual narrators did a great job.

There is lots of hot steamy sex, but the plot was seriously lacking. The first book just kind of ends, there's no story arc or conclusion. The author just split the book in two parts.
I did read the second book, as I was sort of into the characters and waiting for the action. I was rewarded with a bit of action, but there weren't enough story details. There's a couple of fights against the bad guys lackies and then a supporting character just comes in with 'oh I fixed everything'. We still dont even know anything about the bad guy! Then if we want to know how that happened we have to read the third book, which tells the story from the other characters pov? I feel a bit like I've been ripped off.
