I have not liked this series since book one... yet I keep reading it. And the sad thing is I will probably read the 4th book too.
My biggest problem with this series is the heroine. She is weak, whiny, annoying and can't figure out what she wants. With the first book, I thought it was because she was a new vampire and she needed time to adjust. But after the third book she hasn't changed and if anything she is worse. Nathan (her sire) should just stake her and set her in the sun.
I don't think I can read anymore of this series. I loved the first book, thought it was fresh take on vampires stories...but each book become progressively worse. I don't think I'll ever read another book by this author.
Great! Dont want to be a spoiler, so I will just say this book was full of surprises and twists. Just as good as the first two. I can't wait for the next book!! I would buy it today if it were available. I loved this series.
I love this series. This books was great. I read it in one day while on vacation. I e-mailed the author to make sure there is a book 4, because let me tell you she has some explaining to do with the way she left off, and she said it will be out summer of 08. She is also writing a new series along the same lines but will be farie instead of vampire. I recommend this book to anyone who has read the first two.
Almost didn't finish this one. This series is just not for me. The main character is whiny and I don't like her. And she's "in love" with two men, neither of which are all that great. One's a sadist and the "nice one" is a jerk half the time. And no one seems to know what they want. Argh! No more of this writer for me!
Keeping it simple. The heroine is protrayed as strong and independent, but in reading book 1-3, which was a trial, I found her not to be what one would expect. The character has moments of lucidity, but over all is written to have no common sense. Readinbg the series became so painful that I could not even finish book three. - and for me not to finish a book is saying a lot.
I love this whole series! From the very 1st book I was immediately hooked and could not put them down. You get to see the struggles and mystery that Dr. Carrie Ames is going through after she is turned into a vampire. Between the love stories and the action, this series is one of my favorites. A must read for any vampire lover!!!!
This is #3 in authors Blood Ties series. Didnt find this one as good as her 2 previous ones. Kinda dijointed. Not much about the Oracle as u would think by the summary on book. Carrie, I feel is just the same self-feeling, unempathetic person. Like the other characters, thats why I am finishing up this series. All in all, gave a 3 star & do recommend this to anyone in this genre series. Not really that bad, but not as promising as her 2 others. Hope book #4 is better, and gives a good ending to this series.
This was my least favorite of the series so far. I hated the ending, because it seemed as though the author just needed to make a quick end of it and next thing ya know the villians are dead. I still am going to read the 4th book, that whole can't start a series without finishing it aspect, and hopefully it will be better.
Love this book actually this series I haven't run across a book that has actually brought me to tears as this series has and I find it nice to find a writer who can actually still pull at my heart strings I absolutely recommend this series. Very refreshing.
Ashes to Ashes is much better than the previous entry in this series, but not nearly as good as the first.
Although the author does attempt a recap of previous events, this book makes more sense when read after Possession, as the characters and storyline continue where Possession left off. Ashes to Ashes finds our heroine on the run from the Oracle and (still) trying to sort out her feeling for Nathan and Cyrus. There is only one more book to go in this series so I suppose I will read it also since I've come this far.
