This is OK. I really wanted to love it as I've heard so many people added to their list of all time favorite titles. It's not a bad book, written wellThis is OK. I really wanted to love it as I've heard so many people added to their list of all time favorite titles. It's not a bad book, written well and from two very different perspectives but it didn't add anything to what I already understood from history to be a miserable story. I would have liked to understand more about the aftermath of that period.
I suspect that my opinion is tainted by the fact that it was hard going to read, if you want a quick read, this may not be the title. If you want a happy ending... don't pick this book.
Just to be contrary my friend who often enjoys similar books to myself absolutely loved it, couldn't put it down.
Hmm still love this series but I have to admit that this did not warrant my usual 5 star rating for a book in this series particularly with this charaHmm still love this series but I have to admit that this did not warrant my usual 5 star rating for a book in this series particularly with this character. It genuinely felt like a prelude to a conclusion. There just wasn't enough meat on the bones to the main storyline and feels like it has set multiple threads that will all evolve in the next book. Nevertheless, it provided more time for the author to explore the complexities of a young adult reaching maturity with Savannah's character.
It did not disappoint as I am so familiar with the entire cast of characters in this series it was nice to get a glimpse of some of the key players again.
I will eagerly await the next book which I believe will conclude the series - I will be saddened to say goodbye to these people!...more

This is the latest in her "suspense / romance" genre. All I can say is thank goodness for rain! The weather gave me a perfect excuse to invest extra hours in reading this. That and a 2am lights out.
I've mentioned before that there is real method in these books, girl, guy, job, situation and then the risk/suspense element. This is no different however the author again makes you appreciate another way of life for the Zulies, the wild fire fighters that arrive by jumping from an aircraft into the site. Having lived in the green green lands of England all my life I always find it intriguing to get submersed in someones life in varying parts of the USA. This book provided a fabulous understanding of an element of America's wild that we truly hear nothing of over here.
I always become obsessed with these stories grow to love the characters and until the book is done can't put it down. They also stay with you and make me want to save my airmails to visit the states less common tourist spots.
The only criticism I would have on this book is that the jargon and "fire terminology" was very difficult to understand at first as it was a subject so alien to me!

The story does not disappoint, Dulcie O'Neill has developed into a wonderful character and although not technically a crime fighter she now exploits the best of both worlds, her freedom to write and "Detective: Consultant". More aspects of HP's paranormal world evolve, both with new species and new patterns to crime plausible in this world.
I couldn't help but read on because I was living in hope of my questions being answered and some relationship evolution. This is the reason my star rating dropped, I feel a little cheated. I hoped to glean more into the abilities and mystery of a Loki (AKA "Super Sexy" Knight ) I also hoped that Dulcie might pull herself together a little and take a personal chance, it didn't happen. Of course all these threads remain hanging so I will probably be one of the first to read the next installment of Dulcie's life, but please HP you can build the scene too much - Give a little :-)...more
This kept me on my toes, it has two Narrators, Liv and Cam - it switches between the two and I foundReally liked this... one of my favourite authors.
This kept me on my toes, it has two Narrators, Liv and Cam - it switches between the two and I found myself having to double check the indicators to be sure from whose point of view I was currently hearing the story. Not a criticism, a fact! Which I actually began to enjoy thoroughly once I kept track. An interesting decision by the author to offer the two emotional slants as the book unravels. Well done Rachel.
I did however feel that I was really just beginning to get entirely absorbed in the new extra sensory world when the plot came to quite an abrupt end. Some major events occurred, without the chance for the main character to have any input. A "fait accomplice" I realize to establish the setting for the next books. Frustrating though.
I was expecting good things from this book, I loved the drama/action of Rachel Vincent's first adult series. This did not disappoint. Although the sexual chemistry and 6 year abstinence could definitely have been exploited more for this readers enjoyment. It was slightly shy of the 5 star that I had worked myself up for simply because I needed just a little more to be totally hooked. A solid 4 and half stars - but I can't give that....more
I can't believe this is the 29th Eve Dallas book. They are always a reliable interlude between my paranormal-fantasy escapism.
I just love the technoloI can't believe this is the 29th Eve Dallas book. They are always a reliable interlude between my paranormal-fantasy escapism.
I just love the technology, set in the year 2060 there is so much futuristic tech, it's a real buzz for a gadget girl like myself. Some of it may actually be possible, perhaps not the vertical lifting cars, since we seem to kill each other traveling horizontally only.
Don't be put off by this, after only the first book in the series, your brain can migrate to the possibilities of the future generation. The evolution of the two lead characters, Eve and Roarke is amazing.

I am however, pretty frustrated with some of the plot elements. There have been questions throughout the series and this left a cliffhanger that I imagine will be part of the mystery. The whole lack of dialog between Mac and Barrons is loosing its appeal and yet I am still intrigued by the tale in its entirety so I will carry on to the 5th and final book, Shadowfever.
Its still worth a read, allot of reviewers enjoyed this book more than the previous. I may have tainted the enjoyment somewhat by reading the whole series back to back (I've never done this before and I'm unsure it's wise to repeat it)....more
