What does everyone think of these books? I have all of them either on my RL or my WL but I don't want to start another series that I might not finish. I'm a little leery about getting the first one without some input.

I'd read mixed reviews about book one before I started the series, but actually really enjoyed the book.  I've since read the first three, and loved all three.  I haven't picked up the next couple yet, but plan to.

Hope that helps :)

I started the first two. Didn't finish. Didn't like Dain's writing style-plotline, character development, character motivation. Others love her-just not for me. I've thought about giving her another go, but I've got wayyy too much piled up and waiting that I think I'll love to be too motivated to do it.

Ditto what Jan said.  I read one of hers... or tried to.  Just couldn't get into it.

Me four!  Claudia Dain is an author whose writing doesn't do it for me.

I picked the first one up at Goodwill but immediately listed it after reading reviews here.  I might try it if get around too it but I don't have high hopes.
