I loved this one way more than the first book. I'm still a little confused with some things from both books but that's alright. ***Mild Spoilers***

I will admit, until about 100-ish pages in I was getting a little annoyed thinking it wasn't going to pick up more from the first book. But I kept pushing and it sure as hell did pick up! I mean you have the Harbinger, a killer clown, a sun god's heart, an awesome blade made of out of said sun god's heart, a ghost helper, evil people and god's left an

I DO NOT like this new design for this series that I just saw on the publisher website:

It looks cheap and I have no idea what the heck it's trying to convey.

Public Enemies is the second installment in the Immortal Game series by author Ann Aguirre. Edie Kramer has had her entire life turned upside down. She's gone from the taunted and bullied, to a player in a game between Immortals who treat humans like game pieces. She's lost her mother, h

This review is going to be missing quotes, because I got wrapped up enough in the story that I forgot to mark the ones I liked! This review will also be very different from Mortal Danger (the first book in the series) because it is much darker, and so much more is happening! So I am going to do my best to review this without getting into too much detail. I feel this book is better that way.

I skipped the whole book. I read the first few chapters and the last few while skimming ten pages at a time in between.


Edie is a stupid girl. She is stupid. Stupid. And stupid.

The writing is stupid. Stupid. And stupid.

Everything had to favor Edie and she pretended she didn't care. She is stupid. Stupid. And stupid.

Apologize to those you read this.

Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.

I read Immortal Danger last year and loved it. Actually, I’ve read most of Aguirre’s work and I haven’t been disappointed…till now. Comparing Public Enemies to the first book in the trilogy, it definitely did not live up to my expectations. And like the curse of many middle books in a series, Public Enemies suffered the sophomore slump.

Like many reviewers stated, the author didn’t do a good job at rehashing the
DNF on page 100.

I was nervous going into this one because I didn't remember much about Mortal Danger, other than that Edie almost committed suicide, but then got into a Faustian bargain for favors that she'd have to repay to some immortal beings playing some game with puny mortals. Then there was a lot of scary and gory shit and a lot of people died.

Public Enemies spends almost NO time getting you back up to speed. I remember nothing of Edie's friends - who apparently know about some of the supe

Okay Okay Okay........ I have to get this out first because there are two things that bugged the heck out of me about this book. The first is what the hell happened to the cover?????????? Did I miss something and the cover designer changed? The second thing that bothered me was that it took me a few chapters to get into the story. I mean The Immortal Game the first book had me on the edge of my seat from page one and I could not put the book down but it took me a few days to read Public Enemies. ...more

I really liked the contnuation of this story! There was mystery, fear, horror as monsters from the darkest thoughts emerged against Eddie and her friends, yet I felt like the plot went really slow until the action picked up. I really need the next book on this series and I am anticipating it!

That ending broke me! Can't wait for book 3.
Lots of telling, the connection I had in book 1 wasn't there and just wasn't working. I'd love to ask someone who's read it a question about the romance.
Jessica (a GREAT read)
I really, really, ought to be binging series more often! Once again, I found it a bit of a struggle to dive into a world I haven’t visited in a few years. But at least this time, I’m able to binge the last two books. If only finding recaps for older books was as easy as it is to find recaps on the newer ones. Le sigh. I read my own review of Ann Aguirre’s Mortal Danger and was able to get the quick and dirty version of events, though all the outcomes were a mystery to me. When beginning Public E ...more

Three and a half stars: A unique and interesting book that takes the series in an entirely new direction.

Edie Kramer's entire life has turned upside down. In less than a year, she has gone from the bullied, ugly girl with no friends, to a girl who is now caught in a life and death struggle. She is a pawn in the ongoing war between the Immortals. Edie has already lost her mother, and now she is in a race against the clock to save her boyfriend Kian, who sacrificed himself to make a deal with one

This is breaking my heart, but it has to be done. I had mixed feelings about book one, Mortal Danger. But I still really wanted to read the sequel. But then I got it months ago, and I didn't feel like reading it. But this week I wanted to try. But I'm so sad to say that I did not like it one bit. But I wanted to so badly.

I liked it so little that I had to DNF it at page 148. This does not happen often. I do not stop reading books. I don't like it. But with this one, I don't think I will be able

The book was really good I loved how she didn't do any stallage and just went on with the story.The book is sad and I can't wait t read the third book in the story. It has to have good scenes. I was so into reading the book and I was really into the book and she needs to continue to have the good work she does on the books.

This book takes an abrupt departure from Mortal Danger, which started with a teenage girl wishing to take revenge on her tormentors and making a Faustian-like deal in order to do so. It's much darker in tone and further expands upon the world of the Immortals, including Edie's nemesis the Harbinger. He actually wound up being my favorite character in the book. He's a villain, but a charming and intriguing one. Edie is an okay heroine, but there isn't really anything about her that makes her stan ...more

The Harbringer. The Harbringer. The Harbringer. Loki and Jareth and The Cheshire Cat had an enigmatic, spellbinding baby and he is The Harbringer. Just saying.

I loved this book more than the first, and the ending broke my heart. Then I squeed over The Harbringer with the author on Twitter for a while. She confirmed how I saw him with a picture, and yup. In love with him.

DNF at 53%. This book simply isn't holding my interest. And it's creepy in a squirmy kind of Stephen King "It" sort of way.

"My mom would be horrified that I'd gotten myself into such a mess. There's no excuse for violence, Edie. It's always better to talk things out logically. Somehow I didn't think this monster would be interested in chatting."

First off, I want to say thank you to Around the World ARC Tours for sending me an ARC of Public Enemies for review. So, thank you to AtWAT! I will do my best not to spoil anything for Mortal Danger in my review.

When I originally heard about Mortal Danger, I knew I would have to get my hands on it. And I did, as soon as I could. I started reading, and I didn't stop until I was finished. I loved the story, the intricacies of the plot, and the different players of the Game. It did h

Mortal Danger totally captured my attention because of the premise and how brutal it was in its portrayal of Edie Kramer. She's not the "I'm ugly"-but-is-actually-smoking-hot type of protagonist and hell she suffers because of her appearance. The favours? Totally captured me. The way her mum was brutally murdered when she thought the bag-man was after her in order to force her down a path? Awesome. The thing I liked most? The concept that belief is what creates the immortals in the immortal game ...more

Well, I guess I enjoyed this one a little more than the first but that's not really saying much. And I'm thinking that's mostly because of the Harbinger. There was just something about his character that pulled me to him and made him my favorite. Oh how I loved every part with him. Even though he was around quite a bit, I still wish he was around more.

Edie, I didn't care for. In the first book she was okay because she did reasonable things (mostly) and was still easy to take. This time around, h
