I know the release date for Born of Fury has been changed numerous times.  Most people seem to have the 2013 edition wl'd.  However, it seems it's large print and only available over seas (at select stores) for over $40.00.  Now another edition has been added:

Born of Fury :: Sherrilyn Kenyon
ISBN-13: 9781250042965 - ISBN-10: 1250042968 - Book Type: Hardcover
Wish Date: 9/10/2013 - Your position: 5 of 6 - Estimate: N/A
 
I have the other edition wl'd but it seems pointless.  Does anyone think the 2013 copy will actually get posted this year?

I read her Dark Hunter series and all the spin-offs that go with it. What I think is she writes way too many books and the readers suffer for it. Some of her books are actually bad. One of them I read two chapters and threw it in the trash. And it was a short story sold at regular book price. (think Siloette size) I've always wanted to delve into her other series, but I'm afraid of the disappointment. Sorry for the rant. Don't take anything off your WL just in case, and until you get the book. You never know. Also, I've only had one book in large print, but I liked it. And when I reposted it, it was gone in a flash.

LOL, I'm sure you're right about her writing too many books.  I've only read The League Series.  I've wanted to try her other series, but frankly the number of books in the series is just scary.  So far, I mostly like the league series.  However, there has been 2 or perhaps 3 books where I felt the outcome was painfully predictable.  So, I guess I'll just see how this next one goes...    Thanks for the response by the way :)   Were the early Dark Hunter books quite good?  Maybe I could brave the first...

Yes, most of the Dark Hunter books are really good. Try the first one and see how it goes. The spin offs are the Dream Hunter's, the were wolves books, Nick's books, and I think there's another one, I'm not sure. Her books get confusing. You can see it all in her website. Her last Dream Hunter book was awesome, but the few before were so-so. You might love them though, that's why I hate doing reviews. BUT!! I probably did a few reviews, so go through mine. Sometimes when I feel like I got ripped off paying for a book I get nasty when I write the review. Later.

I'll definitly check out your reviews. Either way, I'll give book 1 a shot.  Ha, I think I do the same thing in my reviews though too.  I know the last hardcover MaryJanice Davidson book I bought, it was quite awhile ago, I was so angry I wanted to tear it in half.  Come to think of it this afternoon I wrote a semi ridiculous review for Affliction by LKH.  I hate writing ranting reviews but when you spend $25-30 for a book and it's just aweful, it's a bit hard not to feel cheated.

I just a bunch of your reviews Veronica and we read some of the same stuff.  I saw your've read Pamela Palmer's Feral Warriors series.  I've read her newer Vamp City series and was curious if the two at all similar?  Or if perhaps the Feral Warriors is better?

I haven't read her vamp stuff except one short story, and I didn't like it. (Palmer)  I used to read Anita Blake, but jeez, how many guys do you need to sleep with to be Anita Blake. I also quit on Christine Feehan and Amanda Ashley. I do really lilke J.D. Tyler and J. R. Ward. Sparks is pretty good; once in a while I'm a little disappointed, but sometimes, like I said, it's me. There are so many authors that are really popular that I couldn't read. And i can't read the YA stuff. I paid full price for Twilight and couldn't read it.

Getting back to Palmer's Feral series. I think I've read them all so far, and there  was only one I didn't care for. From the one short story I read of her vamp series, it's like totally opposite unlike Alexis Morgan's Talion series and Paliden series. I read the Palidan (sp?) series, and the Talion series seemed like the same thing. It was odd. Okay, Haven's coming on soon. Can't miss it.
