Colin is a great leading man, a druid who has much to learn and so much potential, whilst still being a likeable relatable guy.
And a guy who can Fight!
If you enjoy fight scenes, especially magical ones, you will love this book.
Read the rest of the series first, the books have gotten better and better thro ...more
The best one yet! I hate waiting. The characters have developed into people I care about, I have worries for the future of Bells. Seriously folks this is a series you need to read. I read these books as part of Kindle unlimited, but I will be purchasing the whole lot, I will have to reread as each new book comes out. Also, will read when no new book is released. They just will stand up to many reads. I look forward to adding them to my shelf of Butcher, Herne and Harrison.
The storyline was fast pace with plenty of action. There were a few inconsistencies and overly rash decisions on the MC's part. Sometimes he would do a particular action, then in the next instance do something completely different. But all in all, not a bad little bit of reading.
Colin is your typical hero in current writing, he's powerful, and a flawed and impulsive butthead kind of person you love because that's how we readers have been trained. He blunders forward and gets beat up and shot up and captured to the point all is lost, but the bad guy always fails to finish him off when he or she is ahead because of hubris, allowing Colin or his friends to save the day just in time ... every single time.
It really doesn't matter be ...more
Just ask Elmogre. Oh, wait. You can't. Even tho Elmo can't speak, someone decided to shut him up…permanently. Ever since Colin's trip Underhill, the fae have been losing power, and someone has taken this as their opportunity to dispose of the fae…in some very brutal fashions. Why would anyone want to tear a young fae seer to shreds when she never bothered anyone? Colin isn't happy over the whole situation. He doesn't like it when people target the innocents, and especially no ...more
In this fifth book in the Colin McCool series, or protagonist has progressed more into his druid craft. Additionally, he finds himself on the side of the fae for a change as he becomes embroiled in trying to determine who is indiscriminately murdering fae.
The plot gives us more insight into the balance of power between the different factions and the truth about Colin's bloodlines as well.
The characters in this series continue to be will developed and with ...more
These books are interesting. After finishing the fifth, they feel like a cross between the Dresden files and Bill the vampire. Both of which are on the top of my urban fantasy lists. Just when I thought this one was done, there was just a bit more that tied things up so far and sets the rest of the series. Looks like Colin might learn how to be a real druid some time soon.
So yes mr. Massey ability to endear the characters to the reader is talented.not every author is able to do that especially in the way he has done it. I feel any author that can make me care about characters in the story is well worth my time to read that story BUT when that author can make me enter that story be apart of that world and cry for any one of them is exceptional hurry please I cannot wait for the next very highly recommend author
Colin is a reluctant protector. He doesn't harbor good feelings towards Fae that have messed with humans. However, some are friends and innocents. I like the action, humor, and romance. Colin doesn't want to use his main strength to fight fight the enemies for fear that his Hyde side may kill his friends as well. He gains power by delving deeper into Druid magic. I look forward to the next book.
This book is a solid continuation of the series. This universe is well populated with human and supernatural characters with surprising motivations and all have their secrets.
The main character has grown up a little more and continues to grow while retaining his personality. The plot and writing are good. The book could be read stand-alone but it will probably encourage you to try the rest of the series.
This book is fast paced. With new twists and turns and even characters. M.D. Massey is a master of words. Every book he writes, is better then the last. And this one is no exception. Colin and his merry band of misfits must find out who have been killing the fae, and being them to justice, (pun intended.) Your in for a ride with this one!
Any reader of fantasy books will love this series. And this book continues with the maturation of Colin McCool. He is a down to earth character that you can't help but to love. And while his list of enemies keep growing so does his allies. Since I started with book 6 , I'm now ready to read book
Massey doesn't disappoint with the fifth of his Junkyard Druid series. Colin is growing and changing as a character and the world Massey has created around him is changing along with him.
I'm truly enjoying the storyline and watching how things are coming together. Looking forward to the next in the series.
Oops, I did it again! I started a series from the wrong book. Lucky, I liked it. Unfortunately, it's the 6th book therefore I think it has let to many secrets out of the bag. But, I'm still checking out books 1-5 to see if I like them, as much. You never know, I may be crush that Jesse is gone and hate it after that. Who knows so time to go see.
I applaud M. D. Massey for giving the world, Colin McCool. Not since Atticus and Orberon, have I enjoyed a druid series, thank you so much. I love the witt and charm, the author gives to all his characters. Please continue to entertain us with your stories and to allow us to visit your world.
My first series, THEM, is a jaunt through a post-apocalyptic central Texas where the dead walk, and vampires, werewolves and other unsavory creatures roam the night. It has elements of the zompoc genre, dark fantasy, and military survival fiction. My goal with this series was to give readers the same excitement I get from reading ...more
