Lady Jaye Oh no! (I mean, 3 stars is good, but still). And you were so looking forward to it too.


message 2: by Zeek (new)

Zeek I know. :/

It was good- just not one of my favs. Demon from the Dark is still my favorite!!


message 3: by Lady Jaye (new)

Lady Jaye Is this one the last in series?


message 4: by Zeek (new)

Zeek the latest- not last. She definitely left it on a cliffhanger. And there's a big bad apocalypse looming!

She is starting a spinoff one tho. Def. looking forward to that!

Not getting the characters affects my enjoyment of a story, too. Forturnately, I loved Lothaire. His arrogance was so like the sorceri Sabine, and I loved her.

I didn't notice the 'scene jumping.' Did notice the super steamy hot sexy times. Yowza! I like how Ellie used her moves to show how hot a hillbilly can be. Watching Lothaire's surprise and seeing him burn was funny.

oh yeah- that was great haha! Def. no issues with them together in the sack!

My first bothersome scene jump was when he traced to outside the valk abode and met up with Thadd? I was like uh- how and why are we here?

Oh, yeah. I remember getting a little disoriented there.

Although in the back of my mind I kept thinking, "ease up sister you're gonna give the guy a road rash." (yes, I've had some experience with that particular pre-pubescent right of passage.)

Jill Dunlop I really like your take on this. Cole's series is one of my favorites. But criticism is valid at certain times and, like you I felt certain parts of the story were predictable or lacking. I will say I completely agree about the sensuality of this story. It blew my mind. Quite erotic!


message 12: by Tracy (new)

Tracy Burley I felt the same way. After a while Lothaire just stayed an ass. He could never really get over himself and it was just to much for me. I felt like this story was just so far from the others pertaining to humor, relationships with not just the two leads but also all the other characters. When reading a book its nice to see what the other characters from previous books are doing.

Donna Bitter Bossypants! Luv it.

Zeek Tracey just saw your comments- yes I would agree too.

@Donna- well, he was! :P

You are absolutely right - :-) Gonna have to borrow that if you don't mind.


message 16: by Donna (new)

Donna I am one of those who listened to the story, and while the female voices left much to be desired (particularly Ellie's and her mother's) Lothaire's voice... whew! Almost set my iPod on fire during those sex scenes. I have to say that while I disliked the story's execution, it was worth it for those scenes alone. Still hoping that the next book will redeem the series for me. If it doesn't, I'm outtie.


message 17: by Zeek (last edited Mar 14, 2012 04:27AM) (new)

Zeek haha! I dont mind.

I honestly think this has more to do with Lothaire himself beacause the other heroes? grrrrr (Especially the weres) He was not an easy one to make into a hero...hate to think of people leavin the series. I just have loved it so much up until now.

Oh god, I can imagine listening to it- it makes me squirm listenin to sexy books with an acted reading. Not always in a good way because I have to get passed the urge to giggle. (Yeah I could never do dirty talk in bed either- haha!) But we as women are so turned on by hearing (unlike men who are more visual) its hard to resist!


message 18: by Donna (new)

Donna The same narrator (Robert Petkoff) did a great job as Lochlan - A Hunger Like No Other. I hope there are more of her books in audio format. Even if I don't go forward I can always listen to the ones I've read and liked.
If you can access Audible, type in one of those titles and listen to the sample. It may convert you :)


message 19: by Zeek (new)

Zeek I do have audible- may have to try it! :P

I just checked the Simon and Schuster site. No Rest for the Wicked is coming out in audio next Tuesday, March 20th. They've got a sample up now.

Kathleen Does the vemon demon from book 10 show up in this book? Malkom?


message 22: by Zeek (new)

Zeek Kathleen if i remember correctly he and carrow show up at the end?


message 23: by Zeek (new)

Zeek Malk wasvthe best :)


message 24: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen Nope. Just finished reading Lothario. No vemon. Darn! Loved Malkom.


message 25: by Zeek (new)

Zeek Ah- i know they show up again somewhere... Maybe it was Macgrieve??


message 26: by Kathleen (last edited Nov 18, 2013 02:59PM) (new)

Kathleen We do get a distant roar through the mirror from Bowen McGrieve, when his wife Mari got hurt. Emmaline get a mention, but no stage time. Kristoff got the slightest stage time, at the end.

This book had many scenes with Thad, as you mentioned in your review. Umm. Chase Daclan and Lucia got a mention. We meet the evil Webb.

Lots of good scenes with Nix. Phenix. As you said.


message 27: by Zeek (new)

Zeek Macgrieve was a disappointing read...


message 28: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen Oh, you are talking about her latest book, I think? Um..or one of the last installments, anyway. I haven't got there yet. May skip it. Good to know.


message 29: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen If you have the book, McGeive, can you check if Malkom is in it?


message 30: by Zeek (new)

Zeek The latest one- it's one bowen's relatives with webb's daughter.

Oh i liked dark desires after dusk (cade's story) for demon background, and Pleasure of a dark prince too (another relative of Bowe's too i think)


message 31: by Zeek (new)

Zeek I'll chk when i get a chance later!


message 32: by Kathleen (last edited Nov 18, 2013 03:18PM) (new)

Kathleen Thanks, Zeek! My expert. I will look into those two books you mentioned. :)


message 33: by Zeek (new)

Zeek Ok- yeah it wasnt Macgrieve, its at the end of Dreams of a Dark Warrior!


message 34: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen Hey-ho! Thanks for checking, luv!


message 35: by Kathleen (new)
