message 13: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3345 comments I started last night and am only 4 chapters in. I like the setting of Prague. Can't say I've read any books in recent memory set there.


message 14: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I'm listening and somewhere in chapter 5. I'm liking the setting as well.

Shaitarn | 1963 comments I'm going to be a bit late starting as I'm currently away from home visiting my folks. But I will be starting!


message 16: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I'm around chapter 25 (maybe a couple before that). (view spoiler)

I don't have a lot of solid thoughts on this, I'm just very curious to see how it all unfolds and get some answers to all of the questions that have been posed so far.


message 17: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3345 comments I'm also through Chapter 25. It's very intriguing! I agree with you CP though I find I do have questions I hope get answered. (view spoiler)


message 18: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I have all of the same questions!


message 19: by Kirin (new)

Kirin Ahh! I'm so behind. Going to try to catch up to you guys tonight


message 20: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3345 comments I finished. Happy to say that questions are answered, though there is a cliff hanger style ending. Initial thoughts (view spoiler)


message 21: by C.P. (new)

message 26: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments Finished it a while ago. I liked it, but didn't love it. (view spoiler)

Now I just have to decide if I want to continue and finish the trilogy.


message 27: by Miche (last edited Jul 16, 2018 06:46PM) (new)

Miche | 3175 comments I liked the second and third books more than the first one. 😉


message 28: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3345 comments I'd like to read the second book if anyone else is interested.


message 29: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments Good to know, Miche!

Do you want to do it at the same time next month, Narilka? I think I can do that.


message 30: by Shaitarn (new)

Shaitarn | 1963 comments I'd like to read the other books, so would be up for joining a BR.

I personally preferred the early section of the book before Akiva turned up (nothing against him or the insta-love, I just preferred the earlier urban fantasy feel of the book; I still enjoyed it, but the second half wasn't as much fun for me.


message 31: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments It was those long flashbacks (or whatever you want to call them) that threw it off for me. But the beginning wasn't my favorite. I liked it (the whole thing, overall), but I'm not really into urban fantasy so kind of preferred when the tone changed.

That works for me.

Edit: I just realized I'm going out of town that week. Put the BR for that date anyway and I might just read it early :)


message 33: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments We can change it if it works better for you.


message 34: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments I will ask for the next two on August 12 and September 12. I'm fine with pushing it back some as well, so if that works better we can adjust it later on.


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments I'm on chapter 20 now in the Dutch translation. It reads like a train so far. I'll try to post more this evening on the laptop. Still in hospital with my son.


message 36: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments Hope everything is ok with your son!


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments @C.P.: after 6 days he's finally home. He had the rino - virus and a bacterial infection together.

I'm starting chapter 22, but up untill now I'm hooked. I can't wait to continue. At first I thought that it wasn't going to be a story for me: school, boys...But then it got interesting with Brimstone, Issa...
My thoughts so far is that: (view spoiler)


Saar The Book owl | 2057 comments I love the writing too: colorful, magical and the art references. It goes all well together.


message 39: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3345 comments Good to hear your son is home and hopefully doing better.

All your questions get answered by the end :)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 1578 comments Glad to hear your son is home!

And I'm excited to see what you think of how this plays out. I thought some of the explanations to your questions were very interesting.

Onarina | 3 comments Guys I just finished reading the book. I would very much like to discuss the events. has anyone else finished yet? Was there an official end or something?

The erratic parts all come together now, and I am pleased to find eveything coherent. Although the ending has left me wanting for more of this story.
