So, I have been reading mostly books with a first person narrator recently and it did take me a while to get back into the style of having an actual narrator who is not in the story but after a hundred pages or so I got over that.

What was harder to get over was all of the jumping around. The chapters are fairly short just 5-10 pages and usually with each chapter you were following someone else’s life the chapters focused on about 11 different people. I really feel like it was just too much. I w

not a bad boook, it was well written. My issue with it is that it is the 2nd book in a series. I don't think you needed to read the first one to completely understand this book but the author did keep having the characters make refernces to things that happened in the other book. Nothing on the cover nor in the front of the book made any refernce to this being a sequal of sorts- if I had know that then I would have looked for the first book beofre reading this one. The nature of the refernces ma ...more

This was a hand-me-down I've had on my book shelf for a couple years, and I finally got around to reading it. I was a little skeptical whether it would be good or not, especially when looking it up on Goodreads and seeing that it didn't have very many ratings. I think only about 10 people have marked it as 'read'. I was pleasanlty surprised. It drew me in very fast and only took me a little more than 2 days to finish. This book was very good and I would even venture to say better than some of th ...more

I was pleasantly surpised to find that Cruise wrote a sequel to The Collector. I can't rave about this book enough. I never thought I would have the chance to read about these marvelous characters again. I can't help but swoon over Seven and be jealous of Gia. I was looking for a book that had a gory mystery and murder. I found this yet it was also softened by the characters that you can't help but want to know. I really liked this book as a sequel and the only bad comment I could produce is tha ...more

This is romantic suspense with a paranormal twist. My favorite character is the daughter "stella". Stella is the glue that holds the plot together.

I suspect there may be more books with the character "zag". Again, way too many characters that are not really developed well through the book but still a good read.

Well, it was about psychics and their abilities to manipulate dark matter and some other hokum. Not really my cup of tea, slightly better than vampires but not much. If I didn't have a hangup about not finishing books, I doubt if I would have bothered to finish reading.

Not great. Not really sci-fi, by any stretch. No insights or ideas, characters had a bit of body on them but not much - hero cop, waif like psychic, tough female cop, you know the drill...i have to stop judging books by the cover

Had to plow through too many words to get to plot. Dialog often confusing. Once at plot, the book held me. It was a good tale.
