Boring doesn't cover it. It's boring, stupid, two dimensional, totally lacking coherence.
I dragged myself up to 80%, then I couldn't really keep reading.

And you know what the culture bashing is pretty offensive. I'm totally for the full sexual free

A lovely novella by Viehl. It was centered on Thierry's son and his visit to Lucian's jardin where a rogue Darkyn is a threat he has to help defeat. Love Sam, and it was nice to see her again.

This is the second book of hers I tried, and I couldn't finish it either. I have quite a few problems in believing this is the same author who wrote The Emperor's Edge. That series wasn't the best around, but it did walk on its2 legs without wobbling ...more

Great idea, but the short story/novella format didn't help. You don't get a single, unfettered story, but 4 or 5 ones. They have a vague arch that links them, but it wasn't enough for me. I couldn't find a single focus or character to root for. Still ...more

Please read Aaron's: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/....

A few mismatched words, some more depth needed to the hero. But otherwise lovely.

Maybe this was going to be a great story. Unfortunately I doubt it. The absurdity gets out in the sample:
-she is both a tour guide and a janitor in a museum. Err, I did work in a museum, albeit in an office. I won't even start. Why not simply let he
