I'm finding myself very disappointed with this book. It is very dis-jointed, the writing doesn't seem to flow. She jumps from one character situation to the next very quickly. The characters interaction with each other seems very formal and reminds me of bad acting in movies. It is very difficult to pick the book back up again. I'm going to try and get through it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

ug. I agree with some of the other comments. The writing is disjointed. She seems to jump around in the thoughts of her characters. In one sentence they have one feeling. In the next it's the opposite feeling. I had no trouble putting down this book which is a bad sign for a book.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I love the characters in it. My favorite Catherine. Her humor, her passion, her strength is just amazing. She is one of those just because I wear high heels and make-up doesn't mean I can't kick your ass. She is in love with a vampire even though the society she is part of doesn't agree. She has this personality of you don't have to like it, your not the one dating or having sex with him. Which man some of the one-liners she has are absolutely hilarious.

Overall, Devour was a really good read. I mean, I couldn’t put it down, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. After being told the books could stand on their own, I’m kind of left feeling like that isn’t the case. The more I think about it, it’s kind of like the Bourne series, where there is a lot of strategy going on, and there is a romance in the background, but it’s more about all the fun locales and the little play by play events that a take-down generally has. Like I said, Devour is good, jus ...more
I only made it to page 40 or so on this book. It just couldn't keep my attention. The whole werewolf killing a person 150 years ago and then their decedents coming together in present day sounded like a good idea, but just wasn't executed enough to keep me interested. This one just wasn't for me.

Good not great. I bought the series thinking i would fall in love as usual but it took me a couple weeks to drag mussel through it. I can't even tell who the main character is. Finished book one don't think I'll read two or three though. Too boring

Surprisingly it was good. I was afraid I wasn't going to like it because I wasn't sure who or what it was about but I liked that it followed so many others and told their story without boring you

A plesant read, I had heard a fair few bad reviews for this book, so was impressed when it read well, the plot was good and the finale too. PIck up Prey the second book in the series.

Too many romances, not enough book length to do any of them justice.
