Oh, it's fabulous! I read them in beginning of Feb, but in a month or two I'm going to do a reread of all of them, lol!!

I really liked it also, but I haven't gone any further in the series. I've just had so many other books that have come first. I need to start working on this series some more.

How is it? I read the first book and just received books 2-5.. I didn't realize they were so short though:-(

I'm halfway through Body Check (New York Blades, #1) by Deirdre Martin and loving it:-D


message 26: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. | 721 comments I actually like the shortness of the books. I can usually finish them in one day. It's good, not as good as the first book, but better than #4 Wolfcry. I thought at first I'd be glad that the series ended, but I'm wondering who the serpiente who comforted Sive was, they never name him/her, but I have my guesses.


message 27: by Abha (new)

Abha Just finished Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning . Not quite sure which of my March books I'm starting next. Need a mini-break from books after reading the whole series in 5 days. I'm exhausted.

Shea | 273 comments Started Outlander (Outlander, #1) by Diana Gabaldon a couple days ago. It's holding my interest thus far.


message 29: by Julie (last edited Mar 05, 2011 03:09PM) (new)

Julie | 9 comments Shea, wait til you get about 150 pages in; it really picks up and gets good! Outlander is one of my most favorite books out of any genre. Jamie is the best-love him!

The Kenyon books are faves I go to again and again. :)The characters, dialogue and storylines make me laugh, cry, and cheer. Those are "can't put them down" books.

Carolyn F. | 721 comments I just finished Enforcer (Cascadia Wolves, #1) by Lauren Dane , it was okay. I'll read more of the series, but not for awhile.

I have really been wanting to read Warrior (The Blades of the Rose, #1) by Zoe Archer , but keep putting if off... Are you liking it? Would you recommend me moving it up on my TBR list?


message 43: by Shellbelle (new)

 Shellbelle  | 195 comments Okay just finished Never Again (Wizards of Nevermore, #1) by Michele Bardsley and I really liked it:) I would give it a 3.5, if you liked her Broken Heart, OK series you will prob like the Nevermore, TX series (even though they are pretty different, her writting style is pretty much the same).

Now I'm not sure what to start next, Maybe Saddled and Spurred  by Lorelei James or Accidentally Catty (Accidental Friends, #5) by Dakota Cassidy Any suggestions?


message 44: by D.G. (last edited Mar 08, 2011 05:22AM) (new)

D.G. | 4477 comments I'm not too fond of Dakota Cassidy so I say go with the Lorelei James. :)

Or if you feel like trying some historical, you can start The Raven Prince (Princes Trilogy, #1) by Elizabeth Hoyt which is one of my favorites. :)

Totally agree. I love the series since book "0".


message 46: by Hayley (new)

Hayley (mrsjohnson1985) I just finished up Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah and now I'm reading PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern ... Next it's a toss up between Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse, #4) by Charlaine Harris or The Hollow (The Hollow, #1) by Jessica Verday . I gave FireFly Lane 5 stars because I REALLY enjoyed it!

Definitely recommend this book. It's a historical, but doesn't "feel" like a historical. Thalia has been living in Mongolia since she was a little child, so she is a strong character with atypical views. Gabriel Huntley is also a very strong character, having been in the army for the majority of his adult life. But he hasn't become hardened and still cares about doing the right and fair thing. The book is well written and the action moves along well. I'm almost on the last page and am definitely going to be reading the other three books in this set.

message 49: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessamc) | 394 comments I'm currently listening to Spell of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. I love this series. The only complaint I seem to have about Karen Marie Moning is that there is too much detail between thoughts of the characters. It's weird, because it's aptly descriptive, but I find myself anxious for the spoken conversation to resume.

I can't recall being annoyed with KMM re thought v conversation, but the author I found really annoying for this trait was Kendra Leigh Castle in her MacInnes Werewolves series. She could go for more than two pages of thoughts of the H/h, interupting a conversation. I had to go back to try to work out where the conversation left and picked back up again ALL the time. I gave up after the second book...
