Briggs continues to surprise and intrigue readers with Mercy’s inventiveness and intuition under duress.
Those elements aside, the novel is weighty without being ponderous, and delivers a satisfactory story despite being part of an episodic secondary world fantasy series.
There’s a general sensation of closure and imminent climax as Harrison maneuvers toward the end, and patient readers are promised a substantial payoff.
...the romance was really disappointing and quite weak in comparison to what I’ve come to expect from this author...and while it becomes clear who the bad guys are, this issue is left open which was also disappointing.
...Weir uses Watney’s proactive nature and determination to survive to keep the story escalating to a riveting conclusion.
This is a sexy and entertaining storyline and I do recommend it to fans of the Breeds series, and recommend that fans of sci-fi romance check out the whole series.
Leavened with strong emotion and dark humor, and featuring superior writing as well as a thoughtfully structured plot, Cat and Bones's final adventure is appropriately splendid and satisfying.
A postmodern view of a dystopian, bombed-out New York City...Telegraphic in style, this book is tough, sordid and definitely not for every taste.
Joyce, showing the same talent for adroit plot development seen in the bestselling The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, brings both narrative strands together in a shocking, redemptive...denouement.
I still had some of the same issues I have with Ms. Feehan’s writing, drawing a single conversation out by about 30 pages, repetitive dialogue and fighting, and overbearing men, but they didn’t bother me as much this time because there was a strong story behind those flaws.
On Such A Full Sea is a triumph because it retreats from easy political posturing and instead shows how an entire town takes ownership of her story.
...politically savvy but militarily uneventful novel that bridges the gap between the last novel and the expected sequel.
Ione deftly moves through the complicated, imaginative plot with clarity and flair. Sexy, creative, darkly fanciful and chock full of action, devilry and intense emotion.
At its core, Innocence is nothing more than a stifling, sluggish retread of Beauty and the Beast...This isn’t the Dean R. Koontz behind heartfelt page-turners like Watchers, Lightning, or Strangers. This is latter-day Dean Koontz, a master of treading narrative water.
Fans will be thrilled with the author’s return to Ireland and with the magical themes. Magical, romantic, compelling and appealing—Roberts at her best.
The dialogue in this book becomes a little stilted now and then, but it's also quite clear overall that since she's put her Jesus novels behind her and taken up this new pagan series, Anne Rice herself seems to have undergone quite a transformation.
The Circle could have been a powerful glimpse at a world gone out of control, made on connected tech. Instead it’s a pedantic and obvious narrative of a Facebook-mandatory future. A view of the future so obvious and creepy that you can’t imagine smart people will let it happen.
Don doesn’t need to be fixed or changed from the appealing unique person he is. But I found myself wanting to shed a few tears for this brave man who logically faces life and slowly starts to open his mind to change.
By the time you finish Styxx, I can guarantee at least one bout of cathartic crying, more likely several. One scene in particular will rip out your guts. It makes the happy ending all that much more potent.
Fenris and Tatijana are entertaining characters and with their various issues, are perfectly matched...Feehan has hit her stride again with this one and has even thrown in a teaser for Dark Wolf.
