Oh MY! Even better than the first one

First thought when finished: Oh MY! Even better than the first one but really OCTOBER for the next one :(

What I Loved: Just about everything! I would really like to wax poetically and make you realize just how fun this series is but I wouldn't do it justice. The characters are mufti-faceted, rich, deep, and fun. I was never once bored while I listened to the story on audio (11 hours or so) and the story built on the last book. I admit I was a little skeptical about Ami and Marcus in the beginning (it's a Seth thing) but I quickly grew to love them together. She was just right for the grouch and she melted his little hard heart! It was fantastic. Their give and take was very well done.

What I Liked: I loved the building up to Bastien's story because I know it is coming next. I think his will be doozy!

Things that made me go huh?: Not a darn thing!

Audio Specific Thoughts: Kristen Potter did a pretty good job with the narration of the story and I really hope they stick with her for the audio. This was enjoyable to listen too!

Final Thoughts: I want Lissette, Seth, David, and Marcus to have books. Oh and can there be a spin-off of the humans please :) Also can we explore Ami's family too! I know that is a lot LOL Dianne Duvall might just have a fan girl for life LOL

Terrific!

If you could sum up Night Reigns in three words, what would they be?

Even though it sometimes seems as if I am missing information, what I am seeking shows up eventually. It was the same with the first book as well. I felt like I had the story, but not the explanation until later in the book. I love that about them. It's like your waiting for a surprise gift, wondering when it will arrive. A nice stay at home winter read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Reigns?

Finding out about Amy was a surprise.

Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

Seth because I can't wait to hear about him.

Any additional comments?

Kirstin Potter does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. Her voice is easy to listen to. I can easily differentiate between the characters without thinking about it and her voice is very clear on my ipod.

Good Book but a Little Preachy

Liked the book but I was a little put off by the preaching of vegetarianism, recycling, etc. It's not that I disagree with the concept, but I don't particularly care for it in my fantasy books. I also found it a little unbelievable that an Immortal would own a Prius. Hot men drive a Jag, Hummer, Mercedes, etc., but not a Prius!
Otherwise, I thought this book, and the first in the series were very good and I plan to buy the third when it is released.

What is Amy?

I really enjoyed this book It has a good viable storyline. It held my interest with plenty of action and romance. If the remaining books are as good as the first two, I'm really going to enjoy this series.

Great new series

This is the second book of this new series,and is worth your time. I read the first book, and the series, so far, has a kinship to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, by type of series. It has the Immortals, that have special gifted powers. They slay the regular vampires, when they go crazy and start killing humans. Of course, the vampires find a leader that organizes them, with hopes of being King. This series though, has it's own twists and turns that makes it unique, with throwing in new species, and keeping you wondering about the origins of the characters. The battle continues with this book, setting it up for the next. The characters are getting more intriguing, and you have a laugh or two at some of their antics. Each book, has it's own love story, but the characters follow from book to book, so start with the first in the series. I'm looking forward to the next.

Darness Dawns and Night Reigns are great books

I read both books in this series in 3 days. These books were very entertaining and worth the credits. The narrator did a pretty good job. I reccomend both books and am looking forward to the next one.

I wish I was warned

i loved the first book and this one started off great. I loved Ami; she is a strong kick a$$ heroin. She does her best in every situation and unlike so many pretend kick a$$ heroin's she isn't overshadowed by Marcus.
The narrator is brilliant. she does the accents really well and each character has a distinct feel. The books sounded and felt so effortless I enjoyed it...

up till about 3/4 of the way through the book was doing really well. then the author dropped a bomb that turned me off - a genre shift.
I really wish I had been warned. Had I known I wouldn't have even started because it really ruined it for me.

Now for the Spoilers:

The book took a sharp left from fantasy and straight in to environmental sci-fi. It turns out Ami is an Alien. there is a great evil aliens racing towards earth and other planets don't like us cuz we are greedy evil people who are destroying our own earth. ( Whether that concept is true or not I'm not looking for a lecture or political statements in my fantasy books.) honestly I'm not surprised because the author comes off as a fanatic environmentalist but I didn't appreciate being from the expected and desired genre.

I didn't appreciate the shift in genre. AT ALL.

I really wish I would have been warned that my supernatural fantasy would turn in to sci-fi. I was loving the book and am now left with a sour taste. I prefer to have just ended at book 1.
