Hunting Julian (Gatherers #1)
Jacquelyn Frank, New York Times bestselling author of the Shadowdwellers series, invites readers into a dazzling new world of unstoppable desire and danger..
As an Advocate for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosenwomen who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club on...more
There's nothing more of a turn off than a woman stupid enough to get herself into trouble all the time. Then just happening to have that big strapping guy around to save her all the time because he's...more
I am giving this book a 5 star with mixed emotions. Jacquelyn Frank created a world non like any I have read about in my past. It was a cross between Monsters Inc (Disney movie) and any Dr Seuss book you pick up. At times I almost wished the book was illustrated so I could compare my minds picture to the picture the authors wanted us to create. I wanted to love the main characters in this book....but at times I almost hated Asia. The author wanted to create a character that was s...more
I only gave the book 3 stars because I got really sick and tired of Asia's attitude and inability to view herself as the type of woman who could or would even want to have a relationship. Ms. Frank did a great job of conveying this as an issue for Asia and I was even able to logically relate, though where all her mistrust of...more
Asia has been doing her own investigation on Julian Sawyer, a handsome playboy who she suspects of kidnapping and killing women...more
Naturally, the female protagonist Asia has a killer body, "lean" yet with large breasts, needs no bra because they are "firm", etc. Similarly, her partner Julian is all that is gorgeous and perfect, etc. As cliche as that all was, I did roll my eyes, though it is certainly nothing new to the romance genre. I just happen to prefer books...more
I didn't feel as though this series had nearly the richness that the other two do, mainly because of lack of history/content. It spent to much time proving that the heroine was a feminist/independent/but willing to succumb to her baser needs at any given time. And the hero, while being noble and blah blah blah,...more
As others have said, in this book there are different planes of existence around Earth...three above and three below. Travel between them is very risky to all involved, but when one level - Beneath - finds itself on the verge of extinction, a select man is sent to earth to harvest what his people needs to survive. His race exists on emotional energy, and without it his people are starving. While...more
I also admire her way of getting you to think. Think about injustice in our world, about selfishness, about fighting for you believes.
The characters of Julian and Asia were strong, even though I thought little of...more
Nope. Jacquelyn Frank's writing is just plain mind-candy. She has a wonderful talent at world creating and story weaving, all of which wraps you up in not only the romance and eroticism of her stories, but also the awesome Sci-Fi of it all ( a genre I LOVE). Her ability to build a universe is aamzing and I very mu...more
First though, I will give props to t...more
But saying that I found this book completely gripping, the world building had me in awe and the realness of the personalities between the leads was brilliant, non of the typical, meet, greet shag' all within a minute going on in this story. I felt like i could relate to Asia, I would be damned pissed off too if i was kidnapped and had no way of getting home.....ever.
Was pleasantly surprised by the di...more
Asia as a character is too overbearing, and Julian is not as sympathetic as the author. tried. to make him the plot is another issue I have too much contrivance. With vilians, idiotic murder and convenient misplacement the heroine i. a prison. for one night turning into someth...more
There is a lot to like in this story. Julian is a selfless...more
Julian is one of the guys who travel to earth and search for women who have enough energy....more
Julian is called a Gatherer and travels to Earth to find women who can help his colony survive. The way that Frank created this whole world was pretty amazing. It's beyond what I've seen or imagined in other books. The concept is different from her other books and yet similar. The romance is...more
Asia Callahan is a bounty hunter who believes her baby sister has been kidnapped and possibly killed by Julian Sawyer, an attractive gigolo who was the last person to see Kenya alive as well as twelve...more
On one hand I am once again amazed at Ms Frank's imagination. There are very few authors at the moment that seem to be putting out completely original series.
I suppose its an a bit of a catch 22 problem. The more I read = the harder it is to surprise me.
The reason I have not rated this book 5 is because I never really learnt to like Asia - Yes I like a strong heroine (i usually demand it) but in this case she was such a tough cooki...more
