I like the mystery the fae, the strong female character. It is a fast read and interesting, the only drawback is the extremely repetitive crude language during the sex scenes, that needs some polishing. I am continuing on, so many questions left unanswered, I am interested to know more:)...more

This one seemed so much better then the first in character development. I love the story. It moves slowly at times but hands down to Deborah HarknessThis one seemed so much better then the first in character development. I love the story. It moves slowly at times but hands down to Deborah Harkness for such an engaging book. I was hooked up from the start and the audio narration was perfect. The only bad thing about this series is that each book is a year apart. I suspect it will grow in popularity once the 3rd and final book is out and people can read it one after another....more

The narrator has a nice voice and it suits most characters but the heroines accent. First of all she is a Hick, you would be hard pressed to like that accent to begin with, but trying to imitate that accent as a man portraying a woman has horrible effect. I didn't care for the heroine, she was nothing special, and not like other non special women who become something, she just didn't change. It was disappointing to have The Enemy of Old bicker with that girl. The love scenes were hot so fans of Cole will not be disappointed, however this book stretched out too long, could have gone without 100 or so pages, at the end the female character was grating on my nerves. ...more

I just got agitated with Kate for pulling away so much. If I was about to die in the arena, I would have totaly done Curran before hand. The epilogue is my favorite part, Curran's menu lol. Buying #4 asap...more
I enjoyed the story a lot and am happy that the series included a book about Dmitri.
I was a little disappointed with the audible versionAudio review:
I enjoyed the story a lot and am happy that the series included a book about Dmitri.
I was a little disappointed with the audible version, I did not like the narration, I think it took away a little bit from the story. Dmitri sounds old, he is a very old vampire but still I thought the narrator could have made him sound sexier, it came out as grandfatherly to me. The other thing is the pronunciation of the name "Valeria", I cringed each time I heard it. The narrator pronounced is as "Valerie" and then adding "a", it was awful the "a" was kind of hanging in the air.
Story was good, of course Honor is nowhere near the cool factor of Elena but Dmitri compensated. I think that a story for Sorrow will be cool, she sounds explosive:), can't wait for the next in the series......more

Saare is amazing at building her character and her bad ass moves.
I was not expecting the series to take such a turn toward the gritty and emotional but I was not disappointed. I can not wait to read more of Rhiannon's law:) but I will miss a favorite of mine in the series continuation....more
What a book I started reading it and I was pulled into the story very fast, although if I have to think and describe what I read about, I would have seWhat a book I started reading it and I was pulled into the story very fast, although if I have to think and describe what I read about, I would have second-guessed myself as to why I liked it but the book is set-up with characters that always draw attention, witches, vampires and demons, secret manuscripts holding the key to all mysteries. I did like the heroine, a witch but also a PhD who knows a lot about history and is very confident in herself. Diana is a grown-up woman who has a lot of witchy powers but she rather likes living as a human, until she accidentally discovers a book that the “creature” society is very interested in. That is the way that she meets our vampire Matthew, 1500 year old doctor/professor/crusader and who knows what else…… The story was very engaging, for the first half of the book I couldn’t stop. However I had serious issues with the main male character who is a sorry excuse for a vampire, and this is why:
1.He practices yoga, now that is not very unusual but I can not find anyone attractive while he is wearing yoga clothes and he is scrunched up like a pretzel for 1hour. Diana is very active as well but she also does rowing, I think I would have preferred him being into that sport more then the yoga classes they were taking nonstop.
2.Diana tells him to come with her in her bed, she actually tells him not to leave and he declines?!?!
3.Diana and Matthew go to France to his castle, at which time they are in bed together and Diana is very willing but he tells her “ There is time, warmbloods are so impatient”
4.Diana in bed with Matthew again, who keeps telling her “There is time” and then goes on about amish(and he is not or ever was amish) custom of lying in bed just talking….I was very confused at this time. Oh and they are married as well, but he is refusing to consumate
In RL grown-up men dont do that, let alone someone who has lived 1500 years, so in my book the guy has a health problem and should see a vampire physician;)
5.At the end of the book Diana jumps him again while they are on a walk and he tells her he doesn’t want to make love to her like that in a hurry
6.And at the very end he tells her “We will do it when there is more time” WoW is all I could say, poor Diana, I mean how much rejection can you stand up, I thought it was very humiliating if you ask me.
The conclusion is that Diana obviously needs another husband, this one fails, he is “too cold”. I know why the author did what she did, because she needs to stretch it out to make 3 books out of this material but if you are above the age of 15 you will question that plan like I did. ...more

I loved the book and consider it as onWhen I read Dead, Undead and somewhere in between early this year I knew that it was a start of a great series. I loved the book and consider it as one of the best PNR this year. I was a little disappointed that book #2 was not going to be out until late summer because the teaser for it was awesome. Also I was worried sometimes after initial book sequels fall flat. Not this one. The Renfield Syndrome was even better.
Book 2 starts where book one left off, Rhiannon 101 years in the future after making a deal with the demon Zagan. She is trying to get to Disco but on the way she is captured and held hostage by a group of “Seals.” I love Rhiannon’s humor and sarcasm. She is a very strong character and a total badass. Turns out the group of people who are keeping her are Lykens and their boss has a serious hard-on for Rhiannon, however some of the females of their kind don’t take kindly to Rhiannon. There is one fighting scene, which really surprised me because it was a lot of gore. I loved it but it wasn’t something I expected.
Rhiannon managed to escape and reach her old vampire friends. The world of the future is nothing she expected, and the people in charge are none to her liking. The story from here on will be a lot of spoilers if I mention what happens, its worth reading it as it develops:)
This book was surprise after surprise for me but not in a bad way. I am extremely curious to see how the author will solve the love triangle that developed in this book. I almost wished that Paine got his own book but may be such series are in the future, who knows. I enjoyed The Renfield Syndrome a lot and can not wait for The Ripple Effect. J.A. Saare does not write fast enough for my tastes:) I need more……..
One of the things that I loved about this book is that it included a lot of action, it was like mini stories of Rhiannon meeting people, discovering their story, having a little plot and moving to the next set of characters/environment/plot.
J.A. Saare is equally gifted in writing fighting scenes and very sensual love scenes, though she does write more of the former. I am hoping for a lot of Disco action in The Ripple Effect, pretty please:) ...more
It is difficult to connect and keep track of what is going on around this book. It is moving very fast and there is just too much. I read the first 3It is difficult to connect and keep track of what is going on around this book. It is moving very fast and there is just too much. I read the first 3 of Cassie Palmer series and felt the same. There is no flow of action, main character gets somewhere, bam, boom, someone dies she kicks someone's ass and we are in the same situation all over again a few pages down. The romance was non existent, I did not feel attraction or even the characters liking each other. I did not enjoy this book as much as I though I will. It has so many high ratings I was expecting more....more
Lynsay Sands is a great author and I think that's why she can get away with a book like this. 60% of the book is introduction to the characters that wLynsay Sands is a great author and I think that's why she can get away with a book like this. 60% of the book is introduction to the characters that will get their own books. I know it is hard to introduce your own fantasy world but putting 15 family members in this book was way too much for me, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, one big happy vampire family.
I was extremely disappointed that the hero/heroine got very few minutes together without the family constantly interfering, I mean they walked in 2ce when Lissi was kissing Greg, when she was feeding of him, when they were having sex, and the person interrupting it is not like "oops sorry" and closing the door, no he marches in and starts up conversation. "yeah I know that you are inside my cousin but I have to tell you that we have to go groceries shopping" (that's not a quote from the book just making a point) I guess if you have discovery fantasies this book will rock your world, they are constantly getting caught.
The other thing that was infuriating is the view of the vampires. They are created from Atlantis nano technology/bio-engineering with the main heroine, who is 200 years old knowing nothing about it, like she is not even interested in explaining anything. The mystery that is so alluring when you read about vampires is totally destroyed.
One of the first scenes in the book is Lissi having a birthday party, turning 202. What does she do for her birthday - she stayed home with her siblings/cousins and had a pijama party all dressed up in teddies and their one male cousin, in a child's spiderman pajama. Mind you these are vampires 200-600years old. It was ridiculous that this made the cut for publishing. It didn't make me laugh, it made me sad. I am happy I didn't pay $8 for this book but got it from the library.
If you want funny vampire romance read Kerrelyn Sparks. Don't even attempt this book...more

I devoured it. This series is one of the few series that has no bad book in it or less interesting, sure I have my favorites within but they are all great books.
It is safe to say that at this point of time Larissa Ione is my favorite PNR author, I like the humor, the sarcasm the way she makes the characters likable even though they have been through thought time/done bad stuff.
I knew I was going to love Sin, as though as male fighter but still managed to be lovable. The Sin/Con scenes were full of laughter and steam:) I also enjoyed that Luc got a happy ending and how everything tied up for all the brothers. Wraith of course stole the show on numerous occasions and I really liked his enthusiasm when he was going to find a “volunteer” which might have been an unwilling one :P
I am rereading the earlier books now and wonder how Larissa came up with this entire world, its amazingly creative and would recommend this series to every fan of PNR out there, if you haven’t read it you have missed a lot of fun. ...more
