The Mating: The Original Law of the Lycans Story
on June 18, 2011
It's such an amazing story! I love it! I'm really into stories with werewolfs and I have to say this is one of the better ones! I've found myself reading till late at night (it's currently 2:05 am) and I can't wait to read your other novels!
A storm of applause to Nicky Charles and The Mating!

I love this story, butI have to admit I like this one more than the previous one! Can't wait to read The Finding! And I have to say that I will surely read these stories many more times.
Having read a lot of werewolf stories and if I had to compare I would say these stories are on par with Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series if not even better than those books!
Praise to Nicky Charles!!!
Looking forward to reading The Finding!

Loved the book, just loved it! It's an awazing book that fits in with the two other amazing books! Enjoyed every moment while I was reading it. Found myself smiling and smirking, frowning and almost crying at one time. But I have to admit I liked The Keeping better, but I love the story none the less!
Another applause for the author!
Lies and Consequences
on July 21, 2011
I really really liked this! Very enjoyable and thrilling - found myself reading until 3 am last night.
I have to say that I don't mind the coincidences since it's what's gets the story rolling (even though they are highly unlikely to happen in real life but wth it's a great story!)!
I'm very much looking forward to Kaje Harper's next novel.

OMG!! I love this! I want to reread it and I've just finished it! I really wasn't what I had expected but I loved it none the less!
I did wonder, though, why Bloodraven didn't even consider the fact that Yhalen could have slit his throat the night he escaped, and maybe appreciate it or at least wonder a little as to why Yhalen didn't.

Warning: This review contains spoilers.
It was very violent in the first half of the story. Certainly not for the faint of heart. The poor neko is excruciating tortured by a group of heartless men that think with their dicks. Seriously, they revel in the neko's pain and humiliation. They even let their dog hump the neko and they make their own "toys" to play and to punish the neko.
I would have stopped reading it, but i desperately wanted to get to the part where the trapper comes and frees the neko. Then the story gets a whole lot better. I really enjoyed the last half and the fact that Dharsha gets some payback on humanity really thrilled me. I cheered him on when he stalked and killed the humans for I really felt they deserved it.
After reading this I got around to Bloodraven and Dynasty of Ghost and they are far better than this one, I think. I would have liked the second half to be longer so the trapper and the neko's relationship could develop further.
But seriously if you are faint of heart and hate pain, torture, humiliation and the like (it's worse than the violent episodes in Bloodraven, I think!), then don't read this! I only finished it because I wanted so badly to know that the ending would be some kind of happy ending for Dharsha!
I wouldn't have given this story any stars because the beginning really disturbed me! The second half is much better though so I'll give this story 2 stars.

NICE! But i think the ending was a little rushed, but that's just my opinion.

I really enjoyed this one and I really liked that we get to know a little of what happened after the ending of The Alpha.
on Aug. 19, 2011
Wow. Amazing. I love this!
I reminded me a little of Avatar on some points but this story is very unique in it's own way and is really enjoyable!
The Hellfire Complex
on Aug. 22, 2011
Oh. My. Freaking. God! This is just sooo good! The story totally sucked me in. I just love this, and it's definitely a story I will be reading over and over again! It really captivated me. It's really original and exiting. I've been glued to my computer screen since I began to read this. But I have to say the summary doesn't quite fit the story and the font differs from time to time which distracted me at times. Anyway this is such an amazing story that I have to say "READ IT!"
5 stars for an extraordinary story that has it all! Roaring applause to the author!!
Heroes & Villains
on Aug. 23, 2011
Wow. I liked this a lot. I like how this is definitely not the normal superhero kind of story, and I have to say I would want to read more stories with similiar plots - a superhero turns bad and you actually cheer him on!
I definitely recommend this story. Five stars!
on Aug. 23, 2011
Nice to know how Vereint got his powers, and that's definitely not in the traditional way he got it.
Other People's Heroes
on Sep. 03, 2011
A realy enjoyable story. I was entertained from the first page. I really liked the story and the characters, the twists that make the story exciting and give it action.
I definitely recommend this one! Both to the superhero fans and those that aren't.
Dynasty Of Ghosts
on Oct. 15, 2011
I read this one after reading Bloodraven so I had high expectations and I wasn't let down in the slightest! I was captured immediatly and I loved it just as much as I loved Bloodraven.
I have to say; Future readers, beware, once you've started you can't leave until you've finished reading!

A cute story about friendship and love between best friends. There're some spelling errors that annoyed me and the wording of some sentences, but all in all a decent read.

I love the way Ann Somerville tells her stories and I also really enjoyed reading this. But I'm retracting a star because of the jump in time near the end. I was so into the story and wanted to know what happened next faster than I could read, so I got really disappointed when that sudden "jump" came. I feel like Somerville cut corners by doing that and it almost dropped the story on the floor for me. I would really have loved to have read the changes "upclose" instead of getting it told as a short chronicle. But but but that is my only complaint - I loved this and I recommend reading it.
I Was an Alien Cat Toy

Once again, I love Ann Somerville's stories, and that includes this one, how she tells them. She's able to bring so much into her tales, and this one brought up so many different contrasting subjects I've yet to see the like off.
An amazing tale of how friendship and affection can blossom despite the differences in species and languages.
The story had a lot of feeling and I cried and laughed and felt dread an anticipation at certain settings.
Again I have to recommend a great story by Ann Somerville.

Yet another amazing read from Somerville.
I loooved how the story itself is seperated in two main parts. The first part is seperated in smaller stories each a case for Javen to solve (in the first ones he's alone, but gains friends along the way as he solves cases), and how all these small ones get interwoven along the way and lead up to the second part which is the inevitable clash between two populations.
I agree that I would have liked the romance to develop before those last 25-30 pages, but I think it's a natural flow considering Shardul's character. You get hints here and there from Shardul and I found it really funny and intertaining how akward Shardul is at times towards Javen.
It's a unique story which I haven't seen the like of before. I can't say this is Somerville's best novel because she has written so many amazing novels but she is definitely one of my favorite writers of all time and this story is a perfect example of how brilliant an author she is.

Latakia is a great novel wich I highly recommend! It's definitely worth more than you pay, so give it a try, you won't regret it!
I love the characters and the whole plot, just everything about it. I've been thinking about it on and of since I finished reading it, and that just shows what an inpact it had on me and how great a story JF Smith has created. I will, without a doubt, be reading this one again.
Praise to JF Smith for this fantastic story!
Unsettled Conditions (Pindone Files #2)
on Feb. 18, 2012
OMG! I loved this! But on the other hand I hated how Ren and Dek were estranged. I loved them as a couple in "Cold Frot", so the way their relationship had deteriorated had my skin crawling. Anyway, no matter how much it rubbed me the wrong way, I could see how likely it was when two strong and determined personalities clash like Ren and Dek obviously did.
The love/hate I have for this story makes me give this story 4.5 stars. I would have given it 5 stars, but because I really really didn't like their relationship makes me retract half a star. Just can't help it. All of this is my personal opinion and it should definitely not discourage others from reading this, because it's a wonderful but depressing story, but a great way of ending this story.
Applause for another impeccable story by Ann Somerville, one of my favorite authors!
Dawn of Darkness (Daeva, #1)
on Feb. 18, 2012
Wow Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the world - loved it all. Hate that the next one's not out so I can continue on this wonderful story. Guess I just have to wait for the continuation.
I have a bad habit of starting on series I come to love, but have to wait impatiently for the next to be released. This story confirms it. Can't wait, it's unfair of Kaine to end the story with such a cliffhanger!
