I thought this was an entertaining and humorous read. It has the potential of becoming one of my addictive series. The descriptions of and interactions between the heroine and her sister are priceless.
And, although I'm not a follower or necessarily a fan of pyschic stuff, the subject was presented in a fun manner. The author doesn't take anything too seriously.
The title character Alex Hawke is one cool dude. And, the cast of characters is very well done. It is easy to get to know them all. They make you care. The plot was tight. The action was believable. This and other Alex Hawke books should be made into a movie.
This is a good book in the sense that it wraps up some loose ends from the 1st book in the series, which I really liked. However, this second book is not my favorite of the series, nor of Anne McCaffrey's collection. I wasn't particularly comfortable with some of the characters' morals, decisions and a particular thread in the storyline. I suppose I expected more. Sigh. Still a McCaffrey fan.
Try as I might, I cannot get into this book. It simply moves about too much. Just as soon as I become involved in a character or characters' storyline, it changes, and it is simply ages before that particular character comes back around. And when they do, it's like starting all over again. Too bad, I am a real fan of David Weber.
I had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, for me, it was simply a standard, somewhat enjoyable read. When I pick up a romance, I have the expectation of being taken out of myself, and being able to count on a happily resolved ending. I suppose it can be said that the ending was a happy one, and it was, but it left something to be desired. It seemed rushed. Perhaps it was the author's attempt to mirror what the great Jane Austen accomplished. Perhaps someone else will find it highly enjoyable. It is not a keeper for me.
I love it. Found this book to be intuitive. Many of my excuses, foibles, and unrecognized road blocks were right on the page for me to read, and discover that I was not alone. Thank God. I've tried many organizing tips and methods to no avail, but this one is working for me.
I really liked series 1 and 2. This one left me scratching my head. I don't want to give away the plot line, so let me say . . . it read like a bridge book. I couldn't get too excited about the heroine either. Still recommend Liu though.
This book gives exactly what it promises, so don't expect anything different. I found the book mildly entertaining, but mostly annoying. I cannot be too disparaging, because it made no pretensions in its description. Although not for me, I sure some will find the thoroughly modern heroine/hero exactly their cup of tea.
I enjoyed this book. The magic the sisters possess, especially that of the Sun Witch, is interesting. I liked the characters. I have only 2 complaints. My first revolves around the curse. It is very clear upfront what the curse is, and how it came to be. However, it is not even 1/2 way resolved (or should that be 1/3 way) by the end of this first book. It's really obvious that the author intends for the reader to move on to each of the books in the series for the resolution. I don't mind that there's a hook into the next, as I do intend to read it. It's just that I would have liked there to be some part of the solution to have been discovered in the present story with the present heroine. My second minor complaint has to do with the introduction of another female character. I didn't like that the story moved to another point of view and another place out the blue. I didn't particularly like the placement. I know this technique is used in thrillers, but the placement within this storyline was jarring. I wish it would have been worked a bit more skillfully.
Other than these things, I recommend this 1st book in the series.
