I almost went blind reading these on screen. I came to love so many characters in this series I am sad to see it end. Wonderful story, thank you for sharing.
-late on the review I know! I was in the middle of nowhere without internet, it was great =)
I think I have sat here staring at the screen for what seems like hours trying to come up with that perfect review.. Alas I do not think any words would do a review justice. I can only hope that this is only the first I will read of their adventures. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book. You have me on the edge of my seat for sure =)
Wonderful plotting, I thought I knew what was going to happen a few times and it was a nice surprise to see that it happened a different way. I do not want to say what I am talking about as not to ruin it for the next reader.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Gauntlet Thrown. The story was mesmerizing and I became lost within my own mind reading it. I certainly hope there will be another book following; there is just so much more to happen!
As far as making a movie out of the book, most movies leave way too much detail and story out (Mists of Avalon is one good example of leaving so much out). I would much rather reread the book than watch what someone has pulled together for a movie.
Thank you to the Authors for sharing your work with us. Your book has become a favorite and I cannot wait to share it with my daughter.
Something about the description caught my attentions so I did a leap of faith and bought your book. It was most definitely worth the leap. I noticed on his webpage he is (or was) in the process of writing a second and third book to complete a trilogy; I hope he continues writing. There are some sad twists but the ending is well worth it.
Interesting for such a short read. I would really enjoy reading more detail to the story. There is so much room to add many chapters, especially on what came out of the gate and how he pushed it all back.
This is the 4th in a series of installments from the author. In this one Raven is not referring to her hair as tresses as it is not written in first person. As far as how the author chose to describe things, I rather like it instead of the plain "she didn't do it because it was about to rain". I happen to know what "Eventuate" means; the times I come across a word I do not know its definition I use a dictionary. It is understandable if this genre is not to your liking, but do not bash an author because you cannot understand the way the story is laid out or know the definitions of the words.
So far I have to say this series is intriguing. The world and cyber world setting are very original. The way each installment connects to the previous one is well written. I am looking forward to finishing what installments are left as well as any others that will come after.
None of the vampires in this book sparkle in the sunlight with romantic notions. If you cannot handle morbid blood and gore I would not suggest this book. It most certainly is not a read for the queasy. I myself a few times put it aside not thinking I could continue reading after what I had just read each time worse than the last. But for me it was the gruesome car wreck I just had to look at and finished the book.
The twists the book has I did not see coming since I was thinking the worst of things possible. I do not usually enjoy reading gore books but this one has (en)grossed me =)
Well written and recommended for those who have a stomach to read it.
The Egyptian history used in this book fits perfectly with the story. Being a cat person may have helped me fall for the characters, but none the less I did fall. Great plotting and description of the secret cat world. I look forward to reading about the second life.
I really HOPE you continue with these adventures.
I highly recommend this series, but the reader must start from the beginning to understand everything going on, otherwise you will be lost. This is kinda like a Feline Quantum Leap.
