Before you go on, here is a note from the Author’s website that explains why some of the terms were used: Here we go again!
In it she explains where the term ‘Lyc-V’ originally comes from and goes on to explain ‘Friend-of-the-Pack’ and a few other issues reviewers have apparently noted. I am including this note here because she makes some good points that should be considered.
That said, please read on for my mostly uncorrected review (You’ll see why I noted those 2 points above). Oh, and please d...more
The story is amazingly done with twists and turns on every angel. The author makes you feel like you are the main character and feel everything that goes on, it sucks you and lets you feel as part of the story and this world.
I’ve read books that have had a faint resemblance to other books in their genre. I mean, a few tiny similarities here and there are to be expected in a fantasy genre, but nothing too overt. This series, however, has so many similarities to the Kate Daniels series that I found myself rolling my eyes whenever I crossed another one. Themes were the same, names were similar, and even the book title is a knockoff ffs! I feel like I just read the store brand equiva ...more
I loved Ari and her strong, independent, stubborn, sassy self. She is a great female lead. I love Declan and James, but can't for the life of me figure out the draw to Inarus. She says she doesn't trust easy, but keeps following him. He betrayed her, did morally horrible things and yet she keeps following him. Declan, in true alpha form, is finding it really. Hard to let cherished, but he is. He gives her space, even when he shouldn't. Yet she doesn't trust him for anyt ...more
For fans of the Kate Daniels series, this book will feel familiar. But, in a good way. I devoured this in a day, and am already looking forward to the next ones in the series. Though similar to KD, the heroine, Aria Naveed is an orphaned merc, part Persian and magically inclined, she’s not from an epic bloodline, and can’t do something more just because of who she is. Like Kate, she’s a badass because she trains her ass off. But unl ...more
I had never read anything by Danielle Annett before this, but I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased to find a new author/series to follow.
The good: I found the novel to be well written and the dialogue between the characters (primary characters as well as secondary) was entertaining and fact paced. The protagonist, Aria Naveed, is st ...more
Danielle Annett is a new writer for me. I was hooked from the start and couldn't stop reading until the very last page. Set in present time after supernatural came out of the proverbial closet, we meet Aria Naveed. A human with secrets, she is a "merc". A private investagor we meet her after the death of a boy she was hired to find. What happens next takes the reader on a while ride through Spokane's streets and countryside where we're introduced to life and creatures and racist humans. ...more
Enjoyed all three books in this collection. Seemed initially to be a mix of a few other familiar series, but definitely found its own flow and niche. Nice twists and not predictable as feared. Ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so off to buy the next in the series right now. :-D
If you're looking for a heroine you can root for ... someone who defies the odds and gets up every time they're knocked down ... then look no further because that's what you'll find in my books.
I hope you'll join me in Aria Naveed's adventures. She's pretty ...more
