Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments To celebrate the life of Jennifer Rardin, and the fact that the final Jaz Parks book is due out in June '11, I thought I'd re-read the whole series finishing off with The Deadliest Bite.

Whether you've never read one of her books, or if like me you've read and loved the series - who's with me?

Sandra | 23919 comments I'm in Charlotte. I was planning to add her to my buying spree when I heard the terrible news. I've already started gathering her books and should have them all by the start date.


message 4: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments I'll join you. I've read her first book earlier this fall.


message 5: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments I should be able to gather the rest of her books by go day. I've only read book #1 so far. I'm not a re-reader. Would it be okay for me to start with book #2?


message 6: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments I'll also be starting with book 2.


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Starting from book 2 is fine.

Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Glad to have you, will you both be starting from the first book, or the second?


message 14: by Nairabell (new)

message 18: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments A little side note. If the last book only comes out in June, will we not be prolonging this challenge to let's say August or September so we get a chance to get the book and read it?


message 19: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments I'm sure we will be AH. Charlotte will probably decide exactly when closer to the end.


message 20: by Charlotte (Buried in Books) (last edited Dec 11, 2010 05:42AM) (new)

Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Well, The Deadliest Bite is due out on 2nd June. So I thought we'd have enough time to cover it in the 6 months. If the publication date goes back then I was going to re-visit length of the challenge.

But I'm open to suggestions.


message 21: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments I've preordered it but you know Charlotte, sometimes that doesn't work, and sometimes we get it earlier. I thought perhaps we'd wait closer to the release date and see what happens.

Just a thought.


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments That's kind of what I was thinking too.


message 23: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments Glad we're on the same page :)


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments No problem ;)

I really enjoyed it and gave it 4 stars. Jaz is hilarious and definitely a kick-ass assassin. I loved her connection with Vayl. It will be intriguing to see what happens with them in the next books.

What did you think of it Charlotte?


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments I'd forgotten how good the first book was. It's been nearly 2 years since I first read it. I love Jaz's sense of humour and it just gets better and better as you progress through the books.


message 31: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments I like her cast of characters. Bergman reminds me of the geeky guy from Alias.

LOL! I can totally see that.


message 33: by Nairabell (new)

Nairabell | 634 comments Sorry but I'm going to have to drop out of this one. I'm not buying any books this year and our library seem to have lost chunks of the series. Grrrrr! Sorry guys :(


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Sorry to hear that Nairabell.


message 35: by Nairabell (new)

Nairabell | 634 comments Next time I go 'of course I can go a whole year without buying any books' I'll say it after I've brought everything on my wishlist. Doh!


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Good luck with that - I managed to make one month last year without buying any. I'm hopelessly addicted though!!


message 37: by Nairabell (new)

Nairabell | 634 comments My main motivation is proving my sister wrong. I'll never hear the end of it if I crack and buy something!


message 38: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments Maybe you can borrow from a friend here and there.


message 39: by Nairabell (new)

Nairabell | 634 comments Don't have any friends that have them sadly. I'll definitely read them, but probably not this year. I can just see me buying loads of books on 1/1/12 :)


message 40: by Lory (new)

Lory (moty) | 3 comments Count me in. I got the books in my to be read pile and never got myself to read them, so for me this is going to be a good excuse to finally read them and try a new author.


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments Hi Lory - welcome!

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments Welcome to the group & the challenge, Lory!

I need to get t'readin' this series. I keep forgetting about Jaz. :)


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments As long as you don't forget about Vayl Steph! He's a steaming hunk of vampirism.... hmmmmmm Vayl..... Definately one of my top five vamps.


message 45: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29297 comments :) Nope, gonna get me some Vayl in Feb.

Ditto that. Soon, I keep telling myself...


message 47: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 02, 2011 10:46AM) (new)

I really need to get my butt in gear and start this series or I'll never get it done by the finish date.I keep putting it off because something else always seems to catch my interst :D I already have several books picked out for Feb I hope I'll be able to fit book 1 in there somewhere!!


Charlotte (Buried in Books) | 557 comments I know what you mean, I don't know where January went!!


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Tell me about it i'm still scratching my head and wondering where January went...lol


message 50: by AH (new)

AH | 2271 comments What if we make this a 1 year challenge. I think it was originally planned to be a 12 month challenge. I know I will have a better chance at finishing.
