I absolutely loved it. Read it in two days and now i'm reading The Keeping. I was so engrossed in the story that I felt like I was part of the pack too. Thanks for this free opportunity even though I probably would have bought it. Keep up the good work!
I have to admit that I preferred The Mating. However I still enjoyed this book but found myself rolling my eyes a few times at how annoying Melody was sometimes.I couldn't connect with her like I did with Elise. I found that for the first half of the book it dragged a bit but once I was past the 260th page, it was on. Kept me up all night because I knew i wouldn't fall asleep if I didn't finish it. Not the best review but this is just MY point of view. Really looking forward to The Finding and hopefullly all the baddies get what they deserve. Keep up the good work N.C!
Read this book in a few hours and went to purchase the sequel immediately. I loved the characters and found myself connecting with the heroine. However the end seemed a little too abrupt as I would have wanted to know what happened to Ian and all the others. It seemed to end on too much of a harsh note. Anyway it was pretty good for a free book and hoping that the next one doesn't disappoint.
I bought the book yesterday and couldn't put it down. I loved the first two and I had to purchase this one. I like the fact that the stories happen in the past but still maintain a touch of the 21st century. I've just discovered that the fourth one has been released and i'm off to buy it. Definitely recommended. Keep up the good work JC.
It definitely met my expectations. Couldn't stop reading it. However in the next story i'd probably want to see a liitle bit more passion like there was in the first book. As much as i don't want the series to end; i'd love to see Ginny get back to her own time (probably in the last book) and have the whole book based on a 21st century romance. That would be awesome. Good job JC. Looking forward to your next book.
I found the book to be extremely captivating and interesting. Couldn't put it down. However after all the anticipation of them sleeping together, it would have been better if there was actually a more detailed scene about it at the end. Overall though i would definitely recommend it.
I was so excited to find out that the 5th book was out. Having always been a sucker for pirates adventures, i found this book extremely entertaining and adventurous. Loved the fact that it was close to the first book where there was a lot of passion and Ginny got to kick some butt ;). The downer for me was the end as she didn't end up with Nathaniel (before he turned into a jerk) seeing as he was the mega hunk and i'd probably be happier if she does end up with the hunk cause that was novel heroes are right? But overall loved the storyline and all the little twists. Oh and would have been good to find out what happened to the evil mother in law. Definitely recommended and impatiently looking forward to the next book. Keep up the good work JC.
Absolutely loved this book. After reading Dark Prelude I immediately bought Dark Splendor because I was hooked. I liked how it keeps you guessing and all the different twists which made the book entertaining and captivating. The downside for me was the abrupt ending and i was expecting the story to finish with a bigger bang. Otherwise great read.
I almost jumped up and down in excitement upon finding the release of the latest book when I remembered that I had a broken toe :)
This book had a little bit of everything and I loved the little twists and the suspense. However I was disappointed because I couldn't feel the passion between the two characters. They felt more like friends than lovers. Overall it was good but I somehow couldn't feel connected to the characters this time like I did in all the other books. Looking forward to the next book. ;)
I loved this book. I thought that it was well written and passionate. However a bit disappointed that it wasn't longer. Would have loved to know how she adapted to her new life in the stars. Otherwise great read.
Once again outdone yourself JC. The storyline was so intriguing and captivating that I just couldn't put the book down. I especially loved how Ginny's personality shone through and how she just wouldn't take any crap from anybody. What I preferred the most however is that she was a strong powerful woman and was kicking butt without having to wait ti be saved. She stood her own ground like in the first and fifth books where she was shooting arrows and then sword fighting pirates. I like how unlike a lot of other regency type books I've read, Ginny turns the characters into stronger and confident women who can really handle weapons. Definitely worth the wait and impatiently looking forward to where we go next.
I have been an avid fan of the series since I read the first book and I was so excited when I found out that the new book was out but I was so disappointed.
It started out interesting but then it fell at a slow and boring pace. I was hoping that I wouldn't last but alas it did. There was no major final sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat scene like all the other books and that's was I thought would happen with the father's unsavory personality but nothing. There wasn't that much romance for Ginny which saddend me a little and made this book paled in comparison because the one before had everything: passion, romance, fighting vampires and having 2 men vying for her attentions and Ginny great personality stuck through. I felt like the ending was rushed and I seriously felt robbed by the abrupt way it ended. An ending for Hope would have been good and I was shocked when it just ended with "she let herself go" and bam nothing else; no the end no nothing. I thought my reader was broken. Overall it wasn't a horrible read but after having read the first seven books it didn't come up to the standards that I am accustomed to from Jennifer Connors. I can't wait to read the next book and hoping that it falls back into the category as the other seven books. So I'd this 3.5 stars.
Once again a captivating story. It was the perfect ending to the story and quite bittersweet since I knew it was the last book. It was almost like saying goodbye to a good friend but I'm glad that Ginny finally got her happy ending. At least I'll always have the books to revisit the magical world that Jennifer Connors created. Looking forward to future books..
