I finished book 1 and have started book 2 (Claimed by Shadows).  I am really having a hard time getting into this series.  I have book 3 and 4 already, and I'm trying to decide if I should keep slogging through to read all of them. 

Any thoughts on the series?  Does it get any better?

I like the series, but I'd say that if you didn't like the first 2, you probably aren't going to like the rest of them.   Her books are a little diferent from other UF/ Para series, and they seem to be books that people either really like or really don't.

I'm reading the series now (I'm on book 5) and I'm wild about them! There is just an incredible amount of action and it's non-stop in all of them so far and it does make it hard to keep up or catch your breath between one scene and the next.  I'm liking that.

I couldn't get into this series at all. I didn't make it a 1/4 of the 2nd book before I gave up the ghost.I agree. Either you really like them or you don't, and I'm on the don't side.Now her other series with Dorina ROCKS!!!!. She is Marcea's damphere daughter.. I hope she writes more of thoes.Midnights Daughter is book #1 and Deaths Mistress is book #2.

Kate - I liked her other series too... that's why I ended up getting this one, and I just can't seem to get into it.  I think I have the first 4 books, guess I know what's getting posted tonight!  I have WAY too many books to try and keep reading a series that I just really can't get into!!  :)

Beth, I made the same decision - posted #3 and 4 because I can't seem to get to the books I really WANT to read, LOL!

I agree with that. I did the same thing with the Psy-Changling series. Everyone said how good they were so I got the first 6 or so books in trade. I read through the first one fought through the second and thought maybe If I just keep going they will get better.Well no such luck, for me anyway. I got about 75 pgs into the 3rd book and couldn't do it anymore.I posted them all for trade. I have a a HUGE stack of TBR and thought life is to short!

I read books 1-3..IIRC I forced myself to read book 3.  Book 4 was halfway read...sitting there for months.  I just posted it.  I'm going through all my books right now and listing all sorts of stuff.  It finally hit me that I wanted to declutter the books and was over the "vamps/mind readers who had super talents that go out and hunt rouge xyz" lol
