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!
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.
This was such an amazing read. I'm normally not into sci-fi but this one was great. Can't wait for the sequel! Everything about this story sucked me in - the characters, the romance, the erotic scenes, the storyline - just everything! It can only receive 5 stars!
Applause to the author.
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!!

Nice to know how Vereint got his powers, and that's definitely not in the traditional way he got it.
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.
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!
I really liked this one. I liked the elements in the story and how difficult it can be when two species clashes and you're smack in the middle of it, and still remain true to yourself no matter how difficult it is. The story also portrayes how it feels to feel attracted to two opposites who're as different as the sun and the moon - the day and the night.
A very recommendable 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.
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.
I like this one but I felt like there was some things that were hinted at but we didn't get around to have it explained enough so the story confused me at times. Otherwise a good read.
Hope to see more of this unlikely couple and how they handle their next obstacles together.
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!
I really adored this one. How unexpected and unfair life can be, how a young man has to become a whole other person because of a horrible accident, but how, in the end, the selfsame person can have his fortune turn for the better and he can once again be who he was supposed to be from the beginning.
I loved the dynamics of the relationship between Carlos, Antoine and Malcom and the one between Cassidy, Denny and Lindsay - they seemed so genuine and authentic and you could really feel how they loved each other.
It's definitely a story I will be reading again in the future.
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!
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!
