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.
The “spells” Skyler cast got on my nerves to no end. The chanting and rhyming have GOT TO GO. I also had a gripe about how the story dealt with the sex.
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.
...her would-be rapist-murderer is about to find her, no matter her many hideouts, and which the reader relishes because this is as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz, a past master of the form, has ever constructed.
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.
New conflicts and antagonists are introduced and dealt with in a late rush, and Reuben’s forays as Man Wolf are perfunctory, taking up fewer pages than the party planning. Still...Reuben and Felix are sympathetic protagonists, and the series mythology, suggesting that the fair folk may be evolved human ghosts, is fascinating.
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.
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.
I highly recommend this story, Ms. Feehan does another excellent job with this Carpathian story and I urge all of her fans to run out and buy this book. I also think this is the perfect book for a new reader to pick up and enter this wonderful world.
There is something funny, even endearing, about such a dark and desperate view of a future — a ravaged world emerging from alarmingly familiar trends — that is so jam-packed with the gifts of imagination, invention, intelligence and joy.
Even though I was not the leading lady of this book *sniffs*, I did actually like Leah. I was ready for the gag-me-with-a-stick feelings, but they never came.
The first of a projected set of seven novels, this book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex to the point of impenetrability.
...too many subplots and characters, not to mention the increasingly impenetrable Norse arcana, draw focus away from the more coherent and compelling Salem plotline. Some readers may struggle to pay attention.
While Drizzt doesn’t appear much in the book, his companions go on quite the journey as they are faced with trials and tribulations in the new lives that have been give to them.
...there were some great scenes in this book and we get to see what’s going on with the others as well, which is always a plus in my book. But I just expected more from Kane after having been trapped in hell for so long.
Vividly imagined fight scenes, clever use of obscure mythology...make this a rare treat, only hampered by the complexity of the pre-existing knowledge required to fully appreciate the developments and conflicts.
At its best, Natsuo Kirino's The Goddess Chronicle is a dark and lovely feminist retelling of the Japanese creation myth. At worst, it's a stiff, repetitive exercise in telling, not showing.
