Robin is a friend of mine, so I remember when she was struggling with squeezing what she’d intended to be two books down into one. The struggle shows, a bit, because knowing and loving Robin Owens’ work as much as I do, I could see places where normally she would have written a deeper scene. However, the book is still a good read. It’s a continuation of her Summoning series, and in this book, a set of identical twins with identical healing powers are called to the world of Lladrana. One twin em ...more

Ok, so I didn't care for Bri and Elizabeth, but particularly Elizabeth. She/they were rather mercenary and egotistic. Perhaps pseudo on track for a doctor, but she just got her MD, she should still have some idealisticality. And Bri should be all altruism. Not so. I didn't care for how they didn't join in with the other Exotiques. They were determined to be outsiders and treated differently than the others. I was happy with Elizabeth's story completion, and kinda Bri's. She coulda been a bit mor ...more

I wished Raine had her own book. I didn't like Cassidy at all. But still a fun read.

Keepers of the flame is book 4 of the Summoning series. All books are about women who are Summoned from Earth to Amee. There, they discover they have power, are needed in a fight against the dark, and they meet their significant other. Book four is no exception, except that instead of one woman being Summoned, this time there are actually two. Well, (view spoiler)Having really liked the first two books, but being a bit disappointed in the third, ...more

This author, series, and book are fabulous. I read too late two nights in a row since I coudn't bear to put it down and can't believe I now have to wait for an entire year to find out what happens next!

Although each book could be read as a stand-alone, I recommend you read the series in order. Each one entails a female from Earth being Summoned to Llandarana to help them save their world from the encroaching Dark. Each heroine has to go through tests and tribulations to come into her Power and t

As with so MANY Luna offerings this book felt more like a sketch than a fully developed novel. There is some great writing in there, some good characters and interesting ideas but nothing ever felt fleshed out. I have to wonder if Luna pushes their authors to meet unreasonable deadlines. I will stay tuned for other books by the author but skip the others in this series unless I find them at the library.

I hate giving bad reviews. But this is just the same story (and I don't mean a continuation of the plot) as in the last three of this series, switching around a few details. Romance novel with a paper thin veneer of fantasy.

I just can't finish it. I'm not even going to try the last one, Echoes in the Dark.

Go read Robin Hobb. Start with Assassin's Apprentice, the first novel of the Farseer Trilogy. You won't be sorry.

This is the most recent in the Llandrana series. It's a really great read. At times I wanted to smack Elizabeth (She was my least favorite twin), and I thought that the part with Raine was a bit rushed. Hopefully the last book in the series (coming in 2009) will finish her story along with that of the last Exotique!

Ok...I really disliked Elizabeth. I like Bri though. The story was good and the wrting pretty good but she tried to cram way too much in this book. The main characters, each giving their own persective?! Waaaayy too much going on. If she had made this two books and actually explored some characters a little more it would be a stronger book. I still love the story arch though.

This book started off interesting to me, especially because I am a twin so I could easily relate to the story. It felt jumbled up towards the middle/end. It was as if this could have been several stories into one. Usually I can read a book in a few days. This took forever as I set it down, read through a few pages, then set it down for weeks.... The first books in her series are much better.

Too much plot was shoved into too little book. I didn't feel like you got to know the characters individually as well as you have in prior books in the series. It was bad enough that you had the 2 main heroines, but the addition of the next main heroine for the next book really took away from this book's potential.

While I'm enjoying this series vastly I feel like this book had some flow issues. it came in fits and starts. I found the twins abrasive for a large portion of the story and couldn't root for them. I eventually rooted for Bri, but it took a long time. I feel terrible for how the story has gone so far for Raine and am sure the following book shall prove interesting.

Much better than the previous novels, although having two main Exotiques as the story flow became a little tedious, I would have preferred the straight narrative. Raine never seemed to get much of her own book, having to share this one and the next.

Unexpected but good

I thought I could predict where this book was going, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover I was wrong! Lots of plot twists expertly woven throughout the novel. Great characters, about to start the next instalment!

I read this book with high anticipation and was well rewarded. I love this series of books and the world Lladrano.

Now I have to wait for the next one.
