Good read although the series has yet to win the heart the way that the Darkness Chosen series did. That said, I'm still buying the books...

I liked Aaron and Rosamund He's all the 'gentleman thieves' we've loved from Robin Hood through the Saint. She's the 'absent mind professor' so wound up in her work that she'd miss Armageddon. When she manages to notice the real world she is socially clueless and can't figure out what the excitement is supposed to be about.

Although there is a lot of Indiana Jones style plot going on [along with the romance when the hero can get the heroine's attention] most of it doesn't contribute hugely to the overall story arc.

Could you read this one without having read the first one? Probably not a good idea - the author has put almost all the backstory into the first book [although we get a few glimpses in this one also].

This is the second book in this series. One of the Chosen must find the final prophecy to save the world and put the Chosen on the right track to accomplish it. It still reads like a scooby-doo mystery, the characters don't seem to take their tasks seriously. And are quite often silly. In this series there doesn't seem to be the urgency of the impending apocalypse, and they are stumbling around trying to figure out what is going on while fallng in love. The love story is cute, but not the kind of love story that sweeps you away and leaves you panting for the next book in the series. Not a bad read, but not a must read for me.

I could not get into this book. Found it so boring that I couldn't even finish it. The characters were not believable and the story was pretty ho hum.

I enjoyed this book, but I definitely think that there will be quite a few people will not. This is the story of Aaron Eagle and Rosamund Hill. This is the second book in the Chosen Series, and I strongly recommend that you read the first book before you read this one, even though the first book isn't nearly as good. This series is slow in picking up but, with each book it is getting better and better. The story and plot is building with every book. If you do not read the first book first then you will very likely be lost in the story and background of the Chosen and the Others. Not to mention you will not understand any of the other characters.

My only problem with this book was that the heroine, Rosamund, was just too naive and clueless. I think that Dodd was trying to make her a bit awkward, but instead she came off as just plain stupid at times. However, those moments that I winced over what she had said or did, did not take away from my enjoyment of the book. The paranormal action and adventure was great and took more of a front seat in this book than romance, which was just fine by me. Overall, it was a good read and I am really looking forward for the next book!
