I really enjoyed the concept and the first two novellas. I might have rated it higher except for

1 - I kept getting jarred by the narrator's age. To me she came off as immature. I kept picturing her as a young woman in her 20s. Then she would mention

As a long-time fan of the series I was happy to see my favorite characters again. However, it was a long, slow read before it got interesting for me. Based on where this one ended I have high hopes for the next installment.

I don't recommend this epis

I only finished because I'm reading all the books my 10th grader is reading for lit class. I enjoyed the monster's narrative. I found the rest of the book tedious and predictable. Victor had so many near-death spells that I started wishing he would j ...more

I made the mistake of jumping into a series without knowing the background so I was lost for a good part of the book. I am a big ST fan so I persevered and got into it. So much so that I will definitely read the next book.

Karlen and 24 other people liked Keertana's review of Stealing Parker:
Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally
"Rating: 2.5 Stars

Stealing Parker is, logistically speaking, not a bad book. In fact, I have an immense amount of respect for Miranda Kenneally for tackling on real-life, modern-day issues such as lesbian parents, gay friends, and even student-tea..." Read more of this review »
