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.

*My Thoughts*

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.

Edie becomes a force to be reckoned with in th

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

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

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!
Kristen
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.
Heidi
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

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

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

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.

Edie has been drawn into the Immortal Game. She is grieving for her mother who was killed by Wedderburn and for the coming death of her boyfriend Kian who sacrificed the rest of his life for her safety. Kian made the deal with the Harbinger who is a combination of all the trickster gods.

Edie is being wooed by the mortal secret society who is trying to end the Mortal Game and she is being targeted by many in the game who either want to compel or service or kill her before she gives her service t

"Public Enemies" the second exciting and gripping novel in the "Immortal Game" trilogy begins with Edie Kramer's desperate search for a loophole that will free her boyfriend Kian from the death sentence imposed in a deal with the Harbinger to save her life. Yearning to savour the last six months of their time together the stakes in the immortal game that Edie's been swept into begin to escalate and instead are faced with deadly enemies who are willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate her.

Book 2 in The Immortal Game Trilogy had my stomach tied in knots. Knowing how Mortal Danger turned out, I wasn't sure who was going to live and who was to die. All I knew was that Edie would have her hands full trying to keep herself and those close to her safe.

Edie is still playing the game and trying to figure out a way to keep Kian alive as his time is almost up. Enemies become allies, but is there anyone she can actually trust? Will Edie's humanity survive while hunting these monsters or wi

This is the second book in the Immortal Game Series and after the way that the first book in the series ended, I really had no idea what I was in store for with this installment. We meet a bunch of new characters, and don't know who to trust and who not to trust. The story goes off in a very unexpected direction, and I'm pretty sure I got a brain cramp while sorting and shuffling everything around in my mind as the story progressed. Kian was so much better in this book t

While I am more than 50% in this book ...I am not feeling it. I am enjoying only Harbinger.

I finally finished this book and still only enjoyed Harbinger.
Dr susan
The Immortal Game trilogy is a genre-bending, mind-twisting, dark and violent journey into the consequences of revenge, the choices made for love, and the cost of choosing one's own path. Just as in Mortal Danger, I unexpectedly found myself liking characters that should be heinous, and I stopped making excuses for the monsters and accepted that not all monsters are always monstrous. Reviewing this book is very difficult without spoilers, which I do not like, so I will say if you like the mix of ...more

Edie is now a part of the Game but Kian has made a deal with the Harbinger. A lot of things did happen and a lot more will happen in this book. I can’t tell you more about the story because you must find out what happen by yourself.
Edith Kramer is a very smart girl, more than the majority of people but she’s made some poor choice who led her to the Game. She must learn how to fight, defend herself and the people she loves. She’s the heroine, in this book she become a badass but she will have to

"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."

4 1/2 Stars!

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

When I started reading PUBLIC ENEMIES, I have to admit that my hopes weren't all that great because it's been quite awhile since I read the first book, MORTAL DANGER, and while I liked it, it was only a 3-star book for me. Imagine my delighted surprise when this book snagged me and would NOT let go! I inhaled this book, grumpily putting it down when forced to by life, you know... pesky sleep, job, family, that sort of thing *grin*

PUBLIC ENEMIES picks up with Edie finding herself smack dab in the

I'm curious to see where this goes. I love the inclusion of the gods and how they interweave, I wish there was more of the relationship between Edie and Kian - she's doing so much for him by not being with him in the limited time they have? - and I wanted a lot more Kian. He kind of disappeared in this book and needed to be more present and more concerned with his own fate. I didn't like how the Aaron plot played out.

Very curious to see how this ends though. That's quite the cliff hanger.

Michael
Well...

While I still really loved the folk lore aspect of the story, the plot was sort of all over the place. And while I can respect where the book ended, it's not really where I wanted to things progress.

Overall this still is a fascinatingly fresh concept and I'm on board for the final book for sure.

This is a very original storyline and well written. You won't regret adding the series to your bookshelf. Can't wait to see how it ends!

I did not enjoy this book in the least, was hoping it would be better than the first, but no it took a giant leap backwards.
