I reread this book actually.
I did read it in 2010 I think in french, and I liked it.
But today I reread it and it is horrible.

The characters I loved before where completely insipid.
There is no dialogues.

Ariel just know how to say: "David..." it's just the ponctuation which changed.
And David , just know how to say her name, and "Are you alright..."
This is the dialogue between the two main characters during the all book.
It is pathetic.

And the author want us to believe they are maddly in love. Well
When I found these, online, I had no idea they were Nocturne novels. I read all three and found myself looking for a fourth (she DID leave an open ending.) Good characters, interesting twists and turns.

Ariel Cooper is descended for a long line of witches, each who had a different "gift". Ariel's gift is that she can see the dead. When she and her sisters - Elena, the eldest and Irina, the youngest - were children, they were taken from their mother. Before that event, Myra Cooper told them the family legend and gave each of her daughters one of the family charms to help protect them. Ariel and her sisters were separated and she hasn't see them since.

was ok. a couple of red herrings made it intriguing. I didn't like the characters though, and there was a lot of show-not-tell.

There was some grammar stuff that bugged me, but nothing big enough to mention here. I still wasn't thrilled with it, though, and it wasn't worth losing the sleep I could have gotten if I had plugged my ears up and done my homework instead of drowning out my brother's tv with reading. And it definitely wasn't worth the stress of worrying about getting the assignment done in time. Point being, it's not a book to make more important than just about anything else. If I could do-over, I'd read it du ...more
Ariel Cooper sees ghosts she has kept the truth from her fiance David, who's powerful and brooding. Twenty years ago she and her sisters were separated to protect them but now the hunt is on again and she has to find her sisters and find out who is hunting them. The more she learns about her past the more secretive he becomes, is he involved with the mysterious people hunting her?

It's interesting, the characters aren't bad and there were occasions that my assumptions were proven wrong, overall n
I liked the prologue, the origins of the witch hunts were well described! And then everything went down.

The hero is too smooth. The author wanted him to be suspected, but it failed, and suddenly the hero is no more interesting than mysterious.

The heroine annoyed me. Up to 10 pages from the end she goes on doubting the hero. Plus she has a gift that may be very useful and she do not know how to use it.

Of course the end is not really one in order to force us to buy the other book to know what happ
Aerial can see ghosts and is from a long line of gypsy women with special abilities. Someone is trying to kill her and her long lost sisters for their powers and he is a descendent from the original family believed wronged 350 yrs ago. Romance thrown in the mix..found this by accident browsing my library and am glad I read it.. now have to read the other 2 in the series. The sisters are being hunted and need to find out who wants to kill them. Great read!!!

Ceritanya gimana ya? Biasa aja sih. Nothing special about this book. Cuma memang baik Ariel maupun David sama sama nyimpen rahasia, jadi hubungan mereka maju mundur gitu. Masalah dendam dan kutukan yang menimpa Ariel dan saudari2 nya... Itu yang bikin penasaran... Jadi pengen baca seri 2 nya, cerita tentang Elena -kakak Ariel- sang pemegang jimat bintang.

haha. Dia cuma manusia biasa, tp dia ngelakuin semuanya buat ngelindungin cewe nya dari perburuan penyihir. Kasian banget pas Ariel malah ragu sama dia padahal dia ngelakuin semuanya buat bantu Ariel. Seharusnya gw kasih review yg bagus tp gada kata lain selain : mending baca sendiri..
