i have read your grace series so far.. the 3rd comes out on my 30th bday!! anyway i liked them not as much as others but i ill give a 3.5, my only real critism is that zoe is a good girl you have her never having a bf...be useless doesnt follow directions it isnt believable she would sleep with 2 men.


message 7: by Jayne (new)

Jayne Although I Am Legend is a great book it shouldn't be on this list as the author is male.


message 8: by San (new)

San I would highly recommend both Odium and Odium Origins. A Dead Saga novella. Part One. By Claire C. Riley both are great reads.

Hi Beth, sorry I missed your note! A very happy belated birthday! Yeah, poor Zoe has some issues. Book 5 comes out soon...and I'm hoping I portray her as having grown up a bit. ;-) Thanks for your feedback... :-)
