Great first book in the trilogy. A few spelling/grammar errors where I had to reread sentences but it really took nothing away from the final product. I found myself quite engrossed towards the end and really didn't want it to finish! Off to buy the 2nd instalment immediately.
I found the plausibility of the story a little far-fetched and at times I had to reread sections to understand who was talking. Having said that, I was still "hot and heavy" while reading it, my heart-beat pounding just that little bit harder and desperate to find out where it was all going to lead. I loved the chemistry between them all. I was completely involved in the characters, the rest of my life in suspension, and I felt like I was in that lovesick stage of a relationship! Looking forward to reading the 2nd instalment.
Just as good, if not slightly better, than the first SEALS Inc book. I found the story flowed and was certainly edited well compared to the first. Once again, the chemistry had my heart pounding, body tingling and I ended up sitting up until 1am finishing it because I just didn't want to stop!
Yes, the story line is slightly unbelievable, but who doesn't like to let their imagination run wild every now and then!
I really wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading The Last Killiney but by halfway through I already wanted to buy the 2nd instalment.
It's incredibly well written, suspenseful, heartbreaking, loving and passionate. My only slight disappointment was that the "love" scenes weren't even more in depth ;)
I just couldn't get into it. I enjoyed the prequel that had me desperately wanting to read the full book, but once I began Dark Splendor I found the writing just seemed to stagnate. I thought the concept was great but I just couldn't lose myself in the way it was written. I felt no emotion towards any of the characters and I found myself skimming over quite a lot of the overly long descriptions of the clothes, castle, etc. Like I said, I really did like the concept though.
I love the Alexa O'Brien series and Death Wish really does not disappoint. The relationship between Alexa, Arys and Shaz just made me tingle and gasp and almost have an emotional overload. Then to also combine that with Alexa being hunted, it just makes for a brilliant book! Looking forward to the next instalment!
I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about The Wager seeing as Paul was no longer a part of Ravenna's life, but once I started I just couldn't stop. Fantastically written, emotional and, just like The Last Killiney, had me wondering what on earth was going to happen.
