Gideon'u Dante'den daha çok sevdim, belki bilemiyorum Emma yüzündendir. Artık temmuz gelse de finali okusak.

*spoiler free review*

This was my first book by Linda Winstead Jones and my favorite story of the trilogy.

The story happens at the same time as book 1. Gideon is Dante little bro. Where Dante can master fire, Gideon masters electricity and as a side effect of that gift he can see and talk to ghosts. Which come handy when it comes to solve crimes.

Even though Gideon doesn't have the jerkish tendencies of Linda Howard's heroes, he's HOT and sneaky. Lorna is a strong and warm woman who isn't afraid

İlk olarak Harlequin yayınlarına teşekkür ediyorum bizleri bu seriyle buluşturdukları için... Çok hoşuma gitti :) İlk kitapta ateşi yöneten Dante'yi burada da elektriği kontrol eden Gideon'u okuduk... Dante'nin hikayesi öyle bir yerde bitmişti ki bu ayı sabırsızlıkla bekledim ama gel gör ki Gideon'un ki de farklı olmadı... Asıl olaylar son kitaba kaldı anlaşılan... Dante ve Gideon kardeşler hazır sığınaktaki Mercy'e yardıma koşuyorlar... İki haftacık daha sabredip neler olduğunu okuyacağım :D Ki ...more

Bayıldım harika bir macera idi.Bence ilk kitap Cehennemden her bakımdan daha iyi idi..Üzgünüm ama bu sefer Linda Howard gölgede kaldı Lİnda Winstead Jones'ın yanında..Hikayede hiç bir kopma kafa karışıklığı yoktu..İlk kitapda da yoktu ama sanki bu hikayede aşk,macera romantizm müthiş idi..Vee Dante'den Gideon karakterini daha çok beğendim..
İlk kitaptaki Lorna karakteri kadar Adalet'teki Hope karakteri de beni sinir etti zaman zaman..Fakat bu macerada kurgu karakterler çok daha iyi harmanlanmıştı

Harlequin yayınlarının bizlerle buluşturduğu Raintree serisinin 2. kitabını 3 çıkmaya çok yakınken okudum. Tüm serinin tamamlanmasını beklemediğime hafif bir pişmalığım da yok değil. Bazı detaylar ister istemez unutuluyor.

Cehennem'in sonunda 2 ve 3'ün ilk bölümlerini okumuştum. Özellikle Gideon ilgimi çekmişti. Kızını görmesi falan çok merak uyandırıcıydı.

Gideon elektiriğe hükmeden ve ölülerle konuşan kardeş. Arada gelecekteki kızı olduğunu iddia eden küçük Emma ile de konuşması

(sex, adult situations) I was not overly impressed with this book. This book is the second book in the series and rounds out what happens to the third Raintree sibling during the same period of time as the rest of the trilogy. While many others like this book, I didn't. Why? Well, even though it was written by another author, I wanted series continuity. This author put way more sex into this book than what you will find in the others. There was also an entire "I definitely believe in reincarnati ...more

Raintree adalah sebuah klan dari sebuah keluarga yang mempunyai keahlian khusus. Buku kedua dari trilogy Raintree ini berkisah tentang Gideon Raintree, seorang polisi, atau tepatnya detektif polisi yang condong bekerja tanpa ada rasa keinginan untuk memiliki partner, karena merasa partner hanya mengganggu pekerjaannya saja. Keahlian khusus dari Gideon seperti judul dari buku ini ialah sebagai Pengendali Badai. Badai selalu berasosiasi dengan petir, sedangkan petir dengan listrik, ya, itulah keah ...more

Their name is Raintree. It’s more than a last name; more than a notation on a family tree. It’s a mark of destiny. Each family member has a special gift, an otherworldly talent. Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he’s kept hidden to solve his newest case — a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his

Wedew, aku malah suka yang ini dari ketiga bukunya Raintree :D
Mungkin karena plotnya jelas, ga keburu - buru, suspensenya dapet, dan ada adegan di kamar mandi (waaaaa)

Gideon selalu didatengin sama hantu. Hanya saja, ini bukan sembarang hantu, tapi anaknya Gideon yang dateng dari masa depan! Weleh, kalo jadi Gideon, udah pipis di tempat tidur kali ya, wekekek. Hanya saja Gideon ini sebenarnya bisa liat hantu, selain itu dia adalah penguasa badai (atau petir, lupa ane). Suatu saat ada kasus pembun

Opinião dos três volumes:

http://cronicasdeumaleitora.blogspot....

A série Raintree conta com três livros cada um escrito por uma escritora diferente. No entanto contam a história dos três irmãos Raintree.
Sendo o primeiro o de Dante Raintree, escrito pela Linda Howard.
Dante, tal como os irmãos, possui o dom orientando então o fogo, o seu elemento. Dono de um Casino muito conhecido chamado Inferno, e de onde ele gere os negócios da pequena família Raintree. Mas, alguém anda a ganhar demasiado dinh

Üç farklı yazar tarafından bir üçleme olarak yazılmış olan Raintree serisinin ikinci kitabını geç de olsa bitirmiş bulunmaktayım. İlk kitap Cehennem Linda Howard kaleminden yazılmıştı ve Adale'te adaşı Linda Winstead Jones tarafından yazılmış ve 3. kitap Sığınak ise Beverly Barton tarafından yazıldı. Yorumumun sonunda serinin sıralamasını sizlere yazacağım. :))

Kısaca bilgi verdikten sonra kitaba dair yorumuma geçebilirim. Yazarın kalemi en az Linda Howard

Mungkin buku ini akan lebih bagus kalau saya baca sebelum Raintree Sanctuary, karena dibaca sesudah Raintree Sanctuary, jadi yah rada turun klimax-nya hehehe

Seri kedua Raintree ini bercerita mengenai Gideon si anak tengah. Tapi pendapat saya, cerita tentang Gideon ini sangat standar Harlequin, banyak adegan ML dan ceritanya lebih menyingkap kasus pembunuhan berantai yang terjadi karena pekerjaan tokoh2 utama sendiri adalah polisi. Untuk bagian suspense-nya juga kurang karena sejak awal kita mema

Pleasantly surprised--better than the first book

I liked the characters and mystery/suspense storyline. The paranormal elements were also really original--the hero's ability to talk to ghosts (helpful in his job as a homicide cop) and control electricity. I've read a lot of PNR, and haven't come across many with ghosts. I loved the apparition of Emma, his daughter to be, and how it freaked him out--cute, original and humorous. I liked the hero better in this book than the fellow from the first bo

As much as I really liked the characters in this one I was hoping for more of the characters from the first book. I felt like their story wasn't quite finished. This one was still lot's of fun though.

akhirnya bertemu muka dengan anak kedua, Gideon Raintree yang digambarkan iseng dan semaunya.
kemampuannya standart, bisa melihat roh. yang luar biasa itu kemampuan mengendalikan listriknya, walaupun menimbulkan kerusakan sana-sini.

kemampuannya mengingatkan pembaca pada film terkenal X men. tapi hanya sampai situ batas kemiripannya. Buku Gideon ini lebih menyenangkan ketika dibaca. ringan dan mengalir begitu saja.

ditambah lagi dengan kehadiran menghibur Emma, buku ini pas untuk menghabiskan wak

A mediocre read at best, Raintree: Haunted seemed to lack a lot of the elements that I like to see in a book. The plot was thin, the characters didn’t grab me, and I fought the urge to skim through the novel for at least 80% of it. The main male character, Gideon, was more likable than the main male in the first novel of this trilogy, but he still irritated me with his stubborn, chauvinistic attitude and cliché sex appeal.

I wouldn’t recommend this novel because it was deficient in excitement an

A much better book than the first book in the series, in my opinion. Hope and Gideon had a slower build to the HEA, which was more believable and therefore more satisfying for me. That's not to say that it happened slowly. In a category romance, there's not a lot of time for that, so it was still quick.

I'm not sure about the ending, which felt very rushed to me, but again, there's only so much time to spare in a book like this. At least it didn't suffer from middle book syndrome.

Di sini nama tokoh utamanya Gideon, kekuatannya bisa melihat yang mati dan bisa nguasain petir. dan profesinya POLISI.

dia adiknya Dante.

aku lebih suka karakter Gideon yang lebih ramah. walau terkesan kurang pinter buat nyadar situasi kayak apa. tapi Gideon lebih punya hati. Biasanya aku suka sama tokoh yang sradak sruduk, tapi Dante buka sradak sruduk sih, lebih bersifat semaunya mentang2 hebat :P


cerita di sini alurnya juga cepet. gak lelet kayak buku 1.
Andria
Cerita ttg Gideon Raintree ternyata lebih seru daripada Dante Raintree, mungkin karna temanya pembunuhan juga jadi agak beda ma harlequin2 biasanya. Tapi meskipun tentang pembunuhan tetep dong ada romance-nya, malah lebih romance daripada yg buku pertama yg ttg. Dante Raintree.
Yg lucu kan si Gideon ini sering bikin jimat kesuburan buat si Dante-kakaknya, belum sempat dikirim, tu jimat ga sengaja dipake ma pacarnya, hihihi....
Kathy
By far the best of the Raintree trio. The characters are likable and the story is clever. Hope and Gideon would make a great series since they have a mission other than having hot sex i.e. solving murders mysteries.

It would be great to visit H&G on a day when his gift causes everything to go wrong -- a group of "out takes" so to speak. -- Not to mention stories about their kiddos during the terrible twos.

I really was surprised at how well I liked this book. Considering how much I disliked the first one. I enjoyed the hero and I enjoy how he excepted the Heroines strengths and weakness he didn't treat her like she was less he didn't want her at first but then accepted that she was there to stay and he made her an equal.
Very good will wait until I read the 3rd before passing judgement on the series

Taking place in that same week as Linda Howard's Inferno, Dante's brother Gideon, a homicide detective who can talk to ghosts, finds himself with a new partner, Hope, and a possible serial killer who seems to know too much about his abilities.

This is an improvement on the first book, and vastly more interesting. However, it still seems cut short and rushed, and Hope is a bit too prickly.
