As always, Brendan Carroll comes through in this latest book in The Red Cross of Gold: Assassin Chronicles. This story keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting to find out what's going to happen next. If you haven't read this series yet, and enjoy fantasy, romance, and science fiction, along with a fascinating interpretation of a mix of religions thrown in, you don't know WHAT you are MISSING!
Fantastic read and the saga continues. Mark Andrew continues to mystify me (being split into different individuals is a bit confusing, yet fun!) as do the other characters in this book. I have to say that the most "evolved" character, in my humble opinion, is Selwig, and I am very impressed (I really like the little Tuathan Healer) :o) Some things are made clearer in The Centaur, while other things leave more questions. Still, all in all, a great story. Now the wait for Book XXIX is upon us. I think once the series is complete, I will read from the first book all the way through to the end to pull it all together in my head. If you haven't read this series yet, and enjoy fantasy, romance, and science fiction, along with a fascinating interpretation of a mix of religions thrown in, you don't know WHAT you are MISSING!
If you like a paranormal, supernatural story with romance thrown in, you will love the Experiment in Terror series. Karina Halle has a knack for creating characters that are believable and endearing. Once you start reading Dark House, you will not be able to stop and will want to continue on through the series. The main characters, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray, will pull you in and not let go. I've read the series twice and am waiting (im)patiently for the next book. You must read it to believe it!
In The Red Cross of Gold XXIX:. The Perfect Sun, more mysteries continue. Brendan Carroll weaves a fascinating story of supernatural chaos in the form of multiple mini-scenes, which revolve around a family reunion that Ereshkigal has decided to pull together. Just when you think the scenes are coming together, another "hitch in the road" appears, and you will have to wait for Book XXX before you learn more. If you enjoy fantasy, romance, science fiction, and the supernatural along with a fascinating interpretation of a mix of religions thrown in, you need to read this series.
What a joy it was to read Tyler's Story. Mireille Chester brings back the world of Quelondain, (first seen in her "The Chosen One Trilogy") this time for the YA reader. Her descriptive writing draws you into a world of shapeshifters and other beings, magic, and the relationship between a human and a Maj. It has moments of fear, heartbreak, anger, and love. A definite "must read"!
"While darklings ransack the city, Ree and her friends will learn the depth of the gods' manipulations. Unsure of who is really on their side, Ree must accept her destiny and assume the role of leader. The stakes are higher than they've ever been. Death is waiting for them in every shadowy corner. People will die, love will be tested, and the fate of the world will be decided--one way or the other.
No more running.
No more hiding.
The final battle is here.
The conclusion of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy"
I am so sad that this series is over, although it ended on a great note. I'll miss Ree, Paden, Rolland and the rest, but what a great ending :o)
The comment below was BEFORE I read the book:
"Whoever said, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder", was nuts. Absence makes the heart ACHE longer...and the Sept/Oct Nov release of Into the Hollow (Experiment in Terror #6) has never seemed so far away. But, rereading the series helps a little bit and knowing Perry and Dex get out of their cliffhanger situation (I'm trying not to do a spoiler here for ODW, but the synopsis kinda gives it away) helps. I know this next book will be another 5 star rating ( wish there was a 10 star rating! )."
Now that I've READ the book...it was well worth the wait. My aching heart has been eased. Like I said previously above, I wish there was a 10 star rating, that's how great this book is! The dynamics between Perry and Dex are so intense throughout the whole story, you will sit on the edge of your seat waiting anxiously for an end result. At times I wanted to shake Perry! And Dex is as pervy as ever! Karina Halle has done it again! She weaves a story with just the right amount of humor, terror, adult angst, and love. The Entertainment in Terror series is one of the best series I've read. I am looking forward to book 7!
