I’m going to do a short review on this book. If you’ve read Jayne Ann Krentz before you know that her stories are very similar, I enjoy it more when she writes under Amanda Quick, her historical romance pseudonym. There is usually a misunderstood and very strong willed man and an equally strong woman with an ‘i...more
เนื่องจากนโยบายไม่ยอมลงทุนซื้อหนังสือปกแข็ง (มากนัก) ของเรา ทำให้แม็กซ์มีลำดับการอ่านหนังสือในชุดประหลาดไปสักหน่อย แต่เมื่อคิดว่า ลำดับการเขียนของเรื่องในชุดก็ออกจากสับสนอยู่เหมือนกัน สรุปก็คือ ไม่ต้องคิดมากค่ะ งงเปล่า ๆ
Fired Up ของเจนย์ แอน ครานซ์
หนังสือเล่มนี้ตามลำดับแล้วถือเป็นเล่มแรกใน The Dreamlight Trilogy แต่ถ้าเรียงลำดับเงื่อนเวลาในเรื่องแล้ว ก็เป็นเล่มสองค่ะ เพราะเรื่อง Burning Lamp เป็นเหตุการณ์ที่เกิดขึ้นในตอนปลายของยุควิคทอเรียน ซึ่งเจนย์เขียนในนามปากกาอแมนดา ควิกเกิดขึ้นก่อน แต่เนื...more
In the 1600s Nicholas Winters had a psychic talent. He altered his DNA and created a vase with crystals (called a lamp). Women who had psychic talent involving dreams would be the only ones able to activate the lamp’s power. Through the lamp, these women would be able to increase and/or change a man’s psychic powers. Only men with Nicholas’s “special DNA” would be affected. Also, on...more

What can I say? It's classic Krentz :) As a fan of the Arcane Society novels, I pretty much knew what to expect, and was not disappointed.
I really liked the direction the Dreamlight concept appears to be taking the series -- previous novels in the series (such as The Third Circle I believe) eluded to unlocking dream energy, and this book takes that and runs with it.
One thing that saddened me was that Fallon Jones didn't get a romance.. If you've followed the micro-novel on Twitter,...more
The same author writes under all three names, but Amanda Quick is historical and Jayne Castle is future, whereas the Jayne Ann Krentz were modern day. There was just always something about them that I could not get into. But, since this was Arcane Society, and I really like those, and this was number One i...more

Throughout this book, I was thinking that it was not believable. I guess it doesn't seem like urban/paranormal fantasies need to be believable, but you do have to be able to place yourself in the world, and if there are enough significant discrepancies, it is hard.
This book just didn't d...more
A good mix of psychic skills, romance, and murder mystery with the usual outcome and typical timeline of the relationship dance - meet, wary, tingling attraction, connect, regret, verbal sparring, reunion, happy every after. But the cast of characters are good, interesting, plot li...more
