I didn't like the first book of this off shoot of the monster hunter chronicles but I decided to take a chance on the second book and grew to like the character. He was so different from owen the main character of the monster hunter books and when I went back to re-listen to the other monster hunter books , I grew to dislike owen, he was such a pansy..always going on about what's her face and how she loves him and he doesn't know why and whatever..get on with the story! I didn't like the ending to this book. I spent my time listening to these 3 series and then what happen?! agh..waste of my time!

Deep within the Pentagon, a covert multibillion arms-for-influence program was created. The objective was to protect the United States and its allies from terrorist acts by secretly enabling a handpicked man to emerge as the most powerful leader in the Middle East. But the charismatic Tristan Nazir double-crosses America, twisting the program for his own violent ends to create ISIS. Now America is at great risk.

What was most disappointing about Ben Coes’s story?

he's killing off most of the people that surrounds him and that props up the character and the story, what is this the "Game of Thrones?' He focused more on what the terrorists were doing and their atrocities ( which is a given ,just look at the news in Europe and what's happening there) but he didn't give enough credence to U.S. Military forces, even the FBI, the author demeans their contributions to the story and their competence, in how they tried to solve the problem regarding the take over of the school by the terrorist.

Any additional comments?

I liked the first 3 books in this series, but after the 4th, the way the author is writing his stories is ticking me off. I didn't like the fact that the author killed off the Mossad team that went to rescue Dewey when he was trapped in Libya trying to get out of that country and only left him and one of the mossad team left to barely escape in book 2,

The third book that came out was GOOD, my dad and I liked it a lot, so he kept that book. Then on the fourth book he kills off President Alaire, then kills off Jessica, Dewey's fiance while at the same time he kills off other Delta Force soldiers that were trying to rescue Dewey again from the chinese assassinS, and left Dewey the only one to get out of that situation.

The fifth book the author gets rid of the the other 3 seals on the plane and the other two that was on the ground trying to get a hold of the terrorist's girlfriend. Then the author kills off the other NOC's that were trying to get in country to help get hold of the terrorist and leave Dewey once again the only one alive to get the job done.

WhAT THE HECK IS THIS AUTHOR TRYING TO SAY?! To have all these top notch soldiers get introduced by name and the readers get to know them for a brief moment then the next page they get killed off instantly gets me riled up. It ticks me off, is the author trying to hint that our soldiers don't know how to get the job done and that they're not important to the story? he makes them seem incompetent and to get into situations that get them killed instantly is just pissing me off.

I thought this 6th book would at least be better but once again he tries to do the unthinkable and almost got rid oF other those people that is surrounds the main character and are supposedly Dewey's friends, first its Calabreeze, then he tries to kill off Katie.

Hello Mr. Author, are you trying to hint that Dewey is bad luck to those around him? or those that are around him are so incompetent that they don't know how NOT to get killed and just barrel along into the situation and bang, they're out.

I think that all our soldiers deserved better than this even in books.I know it's just fiction, but why make them seem incompetent?

Hello Mr. Coe.. you say you've been military but the way you write this stories you make the military seem incompetent and not good enough cause you kill them off instantly,

What's up with you?!'m not sure I'm going to be purchasing anymore books from this author, I do this for my DAD who really loves espionage and military action but the way this author is writing about our Military Personnel... IT'S SO....WRONG!!I

I REALLY MISS VINCE FLYNN!!

What could John Conroe have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

If he had stuck to the original characters it would have been better and more enjoyable if he had to why not go back and look at Chris's teen years and see how he handled his powers then and how he grew up ...why introduce new characters?

Any additional comments?

Yes what is up with this new character bit? Is the author tired of the original characters?Is he out of storyline ideas? Is he trending towards the YA crowds? WHAT???! Is he trending toward the ROMANCE GENDRE?!! HELLO? DOESN'T HE KNOW.... IF IT WORKS, DON'T FIX IT!!

I put off listening to this book because I thought once I listen to it there won't be another one until a year from now for her next book to come out. I finally had to listen to it because there were no other new ones that were out that draw me to purchase the books. Boy..I thought it would be a good book to listen to despite the fact that Susan Duerden wasn't narrating it was I wrong. It's so boring...!!!! I got to chapter 2 and started skipping chapters after that.!! I am also put off by the narrator..there's something about her voice..it drops off at the end of every sentence and to me it's off putting. Anyway this is my opinion..I don't mean to put others off this book..if you like Eloisa James then go for it..but I suggest you read the book instead.

What was most disappointing about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s story?

Amanda seemed too wishy-washy for me it appears that she's a pushover and after all that time with Kyrian she still wished to have past events gone. I like Kyrian and if not for him I wouldn't have listened to the book all the way till the finish.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was ok, Amanda's southern accent got irritating toward the middle of the book, I guess it was from all that whining. EH! this is not a keeper for me. I'M SORRY KYRIAN!! If I have to re-visit the story I will just have to read the book, that way I can skip those pages that irritate me! :)

I don;t like reading the start of a book as if I started in the middle of the story...this is what I read on the prologue...both Darling and Zarya already met and are lovers..then you get to chapter one and slowly get the back story...ughhhh....its like watching the movie in the middle of the story and you have to rewind just to get the beginning...I hate that in a book!I had to skip some of these chapters and the torture that Darling had when he was captured by the resistance was horrifying to the extreme..it's a wonder he's still alive.I think one of the reviewers said it well, a lot of inconsistencies, in this story it's as if ms kenyon didn't have a cohesive thought and just grabbed different aspects and characters and tried to jam it into Darling's story in one go..for example, his sister, his brothers, his mom..no back story to them they were just there and in the near ending chapters they, both his brothers, are suddenly badass, assassins or mercenaries and came to his aid to break into the league prison..? where were they when he was captured by the resistance, HUH?!! Why weren't they there to help him before he was torn up so bad, he's lucky he's still coherent at all!! And as a leader of the resistance..Zarya didn't bother to look into who they capture long enough to recognize him? As for his confrontation with his uncle? What the hell was that?! It wasn't even a satisfaying end to his sorry ass..! I believe Ms. Kenyon either didn't write this herself or just had someone write it for her and then she cut and pasted what she wanted in the story..and the editors, what's up with that? why didn't they catch the inconsistencies in this story? I guess they just wanted to profit off of this book too and not bother to read it and look at what's wrong with this book before publishing it!! Not something I want to keep in my library..not good enough to listen to again!! not worth the money I paid for it..! PLUS!!!! Zarya's excuse for not looking into what they were doing to their prisoner doesn't wash with me..she's suppose to be THE LEADER of the resistance! ARGGGGGH!!! She's not worthy of Darling!! WHAT WAS MS KENYON THINKING?!!!

Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone. Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.
