heh

I was waiting for this. I didn't read it, the wails of anguish from the internet have put me off the series forever. First book was so great, right? Sucks balls that it's all derailed like it has.

GRRRR. Just...so much could've been done with this!

It didn't need to go out this way.

I know, I know. She saw the split path in front of her and decided to tunnel down instead. What a weirdo. I've totally lost interest in her and her writing.


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? I don't think I've been this annoyed/upset since Charlaine Harris' last book.

It seems to be the universal reaction. I hear she's a tad upset about the backlash but eh. You makes the choices, you stands by em.

AH You should go look on the author's blog. I am not sure if it is still there, but there was a lot going on around the time of the release. The (view spoiler) But it was a good book up until that chapter.

Duuude, you should know better than to read a book on my "shitlist" shelf. ; )

I swear I didn't know until I went to review this. Humph. You and AH were dead on.

AH There, there, CJ. We must find you a 5 star book now.....


message 12: by AH (new) - rated it 2 stars

AH How about Angelfall, Unearthly, something by Larissa Ione?


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? never read anything by her.


message 14: by AH (new) - rated it 2 stars

AH Larissa Ione? Oh, you should try Pleasure Unbound - paranormal romance between a seminous demon doctor (Eidolon) and his demon hunter gal (Tayla). Takes place at Underworld General Hospital (UGH) among other places. Suspend belief, enjoy the smexy times, and hopefully the bad reading experience that was Shadowflame will be wiped from your eyes.


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? I'll check pbs to see if I can get it

Holly Bush That's the funniest review since Smart Bitches got hold of a Demon's Daughter by Emma Holly.


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? Thanks Holly!

Thanks Susie!

LethalLovely~You Knew Who I Was With Every Step That I Ran to You Fucking FANTASTIC review, CJ. I'm sorry to bring back memories (like the bad memories I have every time someone mentions Richelle Mead) but I just had to say thank you for the review. I was going through my shelves, doing a little TBR clean-up & saw this book & thought to myself, why the hell is this book still on my TBR? I am NEVER going to read this book. EVER. NOT after what everyone told me David did & what Meredith didn't do which should've been shoving her foot so far up his ass it made David feel like he was getting fucked by 10 dicks in unison. Reading your review only reaffirms my belief that this series should've ended at QoS. And now Shadowflame is off the TBR. Thank you.


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? You are more than welcome Lethal. That's what GR friends are for :)

Kaza I love how you mentioned some things that were inconsistent and bothered me that got overshadowed by the infidelity when I think of this book


message 23: by Pamela (new)

Pamela I can't believe all the one star ratings. I guess I'll put this one on the shelf for later. Too bad since the first one was so amazing. :(


CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? I know Pam. I thought that it wouldn't be a problem but trust me it's completely different and out of character and frustrating. But yes, the first book was awesome.

I think that's why it's even more of a letdown

That bad eh? You might as well tell me what made you feel sick. I don't think I'll be getting to the book anytime soon.


Runningrabbit Bloody hell! I'm so glad I read this before I got further. I've only got to about page 35 and had to put it on the backburner for the boredom...

CJ - So, you wanna play with magic? Ugh. I just can't with this. It had such promise this series.
