I started. Not sure about this one. Maybe iit is because I just left Fever world or the subject matter is just out there, I not really feeling this one. I will give it a chance. Hopefully it gets better soon.

Oh no! Hopefully it gets better for you. It's hard moving on after the Fever world, lol.

So far so good. I like it. The guy narrating sounds like he should be a vampire with his accent , lol. I’m not sure what chapter I’m on, the girl is just delivering the note.

It is growing on me. It sucks if you live in this town. You really can't interact with anyone that travels to the town because you might end up receiving something you won't like. Even the people coming to receive a miracle don't necessarily get what they want.

I finish. I'm disappointed. I usually love her books but this one was just ok. The only reason I finished it was because we started together. The characters were likable but I never really felt anything for them.


Tammy ~Witching Hour Reads~ (03tammy-lynn) | 1350 comments I too love her writing and have just ordered this book, I guess I should have got the Raven boys instead.

I'm sorry, Tammy. I wanted to love it since I loved the Raven boys, I just didn't. Can you return it and get the Raven boys? Some people loved it. It just wasn't for me. I may have liked it more if I hadn't just finished High Voltage (Fever, #10) by Karen Marie Moning .

I like it but I'm not sure I'm completely in love with it yet, either. I'm about halfway through. I think when you love an author's books you go into it with a certain expectation, and it's hard then when it's different than you expect. I might try reading it instead of listening and see if that makes a difference.

The miracles are interesting. The ways the darkness comes out are scary!

Sheri, I did find that interesting, too. Not sure if I would want a miracle...they don't always turn out well.

Probably, but I'll just buy the Raven boys series eventually...there is just too much on my tbr list.

I have the same problem but I can't seem to stop buying new books. I guess that is what the challenges are for.


Tammy ~Witching Hour Reads~ (03tammy-lynn) | 1350 comments Absolutely!!

I'll let you know. Let me know how the rest of that series is. I might pick it back up later.

I sure will. I'm trying to finish series I have started. I keep starting them and not finishing. My list of series keeps getting longer just like my TBR list.

I know, I need to go through all the series I've started and see what needs to be finished. There's another Psy/Changling book out that I haven't read yet.

I'll be finished with this one tonight, so we can start Lake Silence whenever you'r finished with what you've got going right now.

The darkness that miracles bring out seem to be whatever the people fear most...(view spoiler)

This one is growing on me, but still not my favorite of hers lol. I like the romance between Pete and Beatrice...It's sweet :)

True. Some of the issues the Pilgrims had instead of looking for a miracle they could have solved themselves.
