This story was a bit frustrating, Noah was kind of stupid and no one would would be as trusting/stupid and it felt like it drug the story out.

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

I love these books. The characters are complex and interesting. I can’t relate to the vast wealth of the characters, but the writer does a good job portraying the lifestyle to make you understand them.

I can’t get enough of these books.

Alea Binte al Mussad, Princess of Bezakistan, was abducted from her university, mentally tortured, and forced to witness the worst of humanity. She was rescued, but not before fear and her shattered soul made her retreat into herself. Two years later, she's living behind the palace's locked gates and the walls she's built surrounding her heart. Alea is comforted by the joyous family around her, but inside she feels so alone-except when she's with the steady trio of guards who relentlessly keep her safe…and tempt her with a passion she isn't sure she'll survive.

The theme of the character conflict is heavy handed. Brought up over and over and over, and over.... it doesn’t add to the story, it makes it monotonous. Sex scenes are awesome and erotic!

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country - and his prisoner. As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows.

I love this story. It's unique and exciting. This book seemed to have more character development, which is good, especially in a series like this.

I enjoyed the action scenes and like how the author used the character's abilities to create very different battles. I can't wait for the next one and will keep hopes high for Mare and Cal!
