It was all over the place and very confusing . It was about this young girl who has dreams of this young guy who turns out tobe her soul mate. Then there is this bad boy that thinks he IS her soul mate. She finds out that her parents are not from this world that they came from another dimension and stayed in our world to protect their family. Now her father thinks it's time to take the family back home to his dimension so is daughter can find her soul mate because she is old enough and that is there way of life. To travel to all these dimensions they walk in a string. It is like a vortex that looks like that haze that you see in a distance on the highways. That blurry gaze that we all have seen. They can travel across many countries on this string by only walking a short distance. Sometimes there can be storms in these vortexes. You gave to be careful when you step out of these vortexes because you could be on a cliff or in the middle of the street. Could be dangerous.
Most of the story was just to confusing for me to even put into words what it was really all about.
This was a slow starter but once it got going it kept my interest.

Salander is being accused of multiple murders. she has a couple of friends that know she is innocent and they try to prove her innocence but a couple of the detectives are not buying it, they are being pig headed.
there were some twists and turns that surprised me. finding out who her family was came as a complete shock to me, have to say I never would have thought that.
this book ended on a high note so I hope the third book picks up where this one left off and is not a slow starter. The first two books of this series started out slow but I didnt want to give up on them because so many people said it was a good story. It is a good story, i just think the beginning is just dragged out with too much background stuff. because they were slow starters thy took me waaaaayyyy to long to read....more

Once the story got going it was interesting while he was investigating the theory the old man had about his missing niece. there were some surprises that i didnt see coming. I saw bits and pieces of the movie, so now i would like to see the entire movie.
I hope the next book doesnt take as long to get into. when I have to struggle to get started in a book then it takes the enjoyment out of it. Friends and family have read this series and asked me to read it they say it does get better so we will see....more
This story started out interesting. I thought it was going to be a good read but it was a disappointment. It's a story about humans that turn into werThis story started out interesting. I thought it was going to be a good read but it was a disappointment. It's a story about humans that turn into werewolves. They don't attack people they are more like the ones in Twilight.
It starts out that the Alpha pack leaders mate Darcy and his sister go into town to pick up some things at the store. They are encountered by a crazy man who was bitten by a vampire. He happens to have a crush on alpha leaders sister. He tries to kidnap her but things get out of hand and she is shot. That infuriates Darcy so she changes into mega bitch werewolf and goes after the guy... That was the best part of the book.
Most of the book didn't have a story line. It was just about Darcy and her alpha mate Mason KISSING ALL THE TIME! There wasn't even any SEX, it was just all kissing.... The book was 387 pages and I swear 300 of those pages was about them kissing.
I gave it two stars only because I finished the story and because it had a good beginning, otherwise it would have been a one. :(
It makes me wonder if the authors agent or proof readers even read the book before it was published, because there is no story line.... If I would have been her agent I would have said where is the story? This is a book about kissing, I need more than that....
My opinion only... Others might enjoy.... Sad to say I won't be reading book two....more

This story was really hard to get into in the beginning, I almost gave up on it. It's a story about 3 guys that want to control all the people in thisThis story was really hard to get into in the beginning, I almost gave up on it. It's a story about 3 guys that want to control all the people in this small town by using mind control. They simply have to say one phrase and it transforms the people into zombies and they are given orders that they fulfill without having a memory of doing it. This experiment didn't work on everyone. So the three guys are looking for the ones it didn't work on so they can test them to find out why so they can make improvements, but three of these people figure out what is going on and they start fighting back.
In the beginning the science part of this story was soooooo boring that I almost gave up on this story. Once we got through all that then the story was interesting at times but still not my cup of tea.
Very disappointed . Usually I like Dean Koontz stories, but this one just didn't do it for me....more

Shortly afterwards she finds out about his drug use and how mean he becomes while under the influence. Shortly after tragedy happens that really shocked me. I have to say I didn't see that coming.
A sweet love story... The only thing that I didn't like was the daughter getting involved with the sisters uncle... I thought that was nasty and disgusting and it ruined a nice story. I don't think it had to go off in that direction....creepy!!!! Otherwise a good read...more

Absolutely loved this story. No surprise Cassie Edwards does not disappoint.
This story is about two young children who meet and have this deep connectAbsolutely loved this story. No surprise Cassie Edwards does not disappoint.
This story is about two young children who meet and have this deep connection almost immediately. They are from rival tribes so they are forbidden to see each other..the young girl makes a promise to meet the young boy in a few nights but when she gets home her tribe leaves their camp suddenly and she doesn't get a chance to see the young man to tell him. The young man is heart broken when she doesn't show up then he discovers that her tribe left in a hurry. Over the years he thinks of her often. Her and her tribe come back years later and she meets the young man and knows immediately that it is him. Their story is like Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden love. Their love story has many peaks and valleys.

I have to say the end of this story caught me off guard, wasn't expecting it. It was sad and disappointing to me that the storyline took off in that direction, but that's what keeps if full of suspense and keeps you turning the pages.
Look forward to finishing this series with the fifth and final book. Maybe the direction the story took in the fourth book will make sense in this final book. I'm sure it will be just as good....more

Someone or something has released a plague that transforms beings of light into creatures of darkness.Seth discovers the problem early, but as the infectious disease spreads, it becomes clear that the preserve cannot hold out for long. in dire need of help, the Sorensons question where to turn. The Sphinx has always given sound advise---- but is he a traitor? Inside the Quiet Box, Vanessa might have information that could lead to a cure------ but can she be trusted? Meanwhile, Kendra and members of the Knights of the Dawn must Journey to a different preserve and retrieve another hidden artifact. Will the Society of the Evening Star recover it first? Will the plague eclipse all light at Fablehaven?
This was book 3 in the Fablehaven series. I find that when I read series that the middle books start to repeat what the first books had in them and they start to lag, but I'm happy to say this series has not done that. Each book picks up where the last one left off, there is no looking back. Each book is packed with its own adventure and thrilling story.
This story has Seth discovering his own powers to help out the Fablehaven preserve, instead of watching his sister Kendra having all the glory and using her powers. When darkness started to take over Fablehaven, flowers started to die, satyres turned into wearwolf like beings, fairies were evil and the nipsies were vampire like beings. I tried to picture in my head what Tinkerbell would look like as a vampire.
Very good fantasy story. Looking forward to reading book 4. Can't imagine what the next adventure is going to be.
If you enjoy reading fantasys this would be an awesome series to read. It would be a good series to read out loud to your children also....more
