I've started this and got through a chapter or two, but nothing really of note has happened for my to comment on. I'm having a hard time getting into this one, but I think I had pretty high expectations going in.


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments Is anybody still reading? I plan to start tonight.

I'm still stuck at the beginning and haven't really made any progress.


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments Oh so you don't mind me tagging along, do you? :D

Haha not at all :)

Perhaps you will renew my interest if you enjoy it!

I made it through this one and the end was better. Then book two I expected it to take off and it was more of the same and I quit somewhere before the halfway mark not being able to stand the inactivity any longer.


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments I expect to love it! It has so many shining reviews! If I keep my current ratings, my average will go below 3 O_o


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments I have forgotten to tell you that I read it really fast and I liked it.

Is this BR going to be continued? Or must I remember to finish the series on my own? :D

Nice! I am finally starting to get into it.
First few chapters: (view spoiler)

I'm not sure if I will finish the series yet, but this is still slow-going for me.


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments I really started liking it only once he got into the second level. Then it becomes evident that every little encounter, sentence, detail - does count and indeed brings fruit! The final part is amazing in this regard.

But it also took me some time to warm up. I thought it would be a 3 star tread at first.

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4606 comments Mod
Where I am, he just got to the second level and at this point, I'm also thinking 3 stars so I'm excited for it to get better!


Timelord Iain | 15529 comments Each book definitely takes time to ramp up... I BR’d the 3 current books last Fall, and each ending intrigued me enough to continue... just waiting for the final release in 2021, now...

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4606 comments Mod
Wow, once I got into it, I really couldn't put it down. I'm finished now!


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments So. Do we continue? :)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4606 comments Mod
I would like to keep going with the series. :)


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments Great! Me too! Do you want to read the second book this month? I haven’t seen the March buddy read thread yet but I’m sure we can squeeze if you’re not overbooked.

I have one BR on the 10th so maybe later in the month? Anytime on/after the 20th should be good for me.


Mayim de Vries | 2890 comments Works for me just fine (especially that I have a trip coming up and that means a lot of in-flight quality reading time)

Ok, I'll set it up for the 20th.
