"Personally I enjoyed this book more then An Unforgettable Lady. Not saying I did not enjoy that one, I did.
And I know some say it is not as good as Ward's BDB series (which how can one top those), but Ward (or AKA Bird) still did a bang up job.
Also, I have yet to notice anyone mentioning this regarding the following books to this one. The Moorehouse Legacy Series deals with the same family. In this book you have Jack and Callie. But Jack has a twin named Nate. Which in the first book of the Moorehouse Legacy is about him, as well as the second book deals with Gray.
The order would be:
An Unforgettable Lady
An Irresistible Bachelor
Beauty and the Black Sheep (first in Moorehouse) Nate (Jack's Twin)
His Comfort and Joy (second in Moorehouse) Gray (Jack's Friend)
From the First (third in Moorehouse)
A Man in a Million (fourth in Moorehouse)
I wish I had more information, but this is all I have at the time, I have not yet read the Series, but will be soon."
"I have just really started reading the Wings in the Night Series, but this one by far was my favorite. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time!
In this particular book however there are two stories. It would be the one called 'Born in Twilight' which I thought best. It summed everything up from the first 4 books (yes, that's right 4, I'll explain that in a sec). Honestly she could have ended the series right there and all would have been well in the world. But no, she wrote more (I have a lot more to read, but that's ok).
Now I want to make a special note about this book, if you read THIS book, read the last story first. It is called 'Beyond Twilight'. It was originally in an anthology. But to read them in order, start there. It makes sense when you read it. That is why I said 4 books.
I am very stingy when it comes to my ratings, but I gave this one 4 1/2 stars.
Also, here is a list if you want to read them in order (please note, you do not have to follow this list, this is what I found to be the most accurate time line). I have Omnibus listed, but you should be able to find most in singles if so desire:
Wings in the Night Omnibus of: 1. Twilight Phantasies 2. Twilight Memories 3. Twilight Illusions
At Twilight Omnibus of: 4. Beyond Twilight 5. Born in Twilight
7. Twilight Hunger
8. Embrace the Twilight
Two by Twilight Omnibus of: 9. Run From Twilight 6.Twilight Vows (this was an older story, another anthology, reissued in this book, hints the name Two by Twilight)
10. Edge of Twilight
11. Blue Twilight
12. Prince of Twilight
13. Demons Kiss
14. Lover's Bite
15. Angel's Pain
These are also part of the story in a spinoff series called Children of Twilight:
1. (or 17.) Twilight Prophecy
2. (or 18.) Twilight Fulfilled"
"This book is a bit difficult to review, but here it goes.....
I read the first book of this series ‘13 TO LIFE' (gave it 3 1/2 stars)
I read the second book of this series ‘SECRETS AND SHADOWS (also 3 1/2 stars)
That leads us to this book, the third (so far) ‘BARGAINS AND BETRAYALS (4 stars, I'll explain why I gave more at the end)
To give a brief detail on this story and hopefully not to ruin anything.
Were-wolves obviously are involved. But not the ‘Magical' ones. Science is to blame here. A nice change of pace and more realistic then some stories, very interesting twist. Girl (Jessica) and Boy (Peitr) meet, fall in love, have troubles. Jessie and Peitr (yes, like Peter) have circumstances in their home life they must over come together. She's important to his life, in more ways then one.
Yeah, I have read some comparing to Twilight. I will admit in the beginning, I felt that, but things change, and quick in this story. However some cute comments where mentioned about Twilight, not in a vindictive way. Like I said, trying not to give it away. Overall, a nice change of pace, very likeable. It did take me a while to get into it. I like the series, although, I do not love it.
I gave this book 4 stars because of the ending. The first two left you hanging. BIG time!! So it ticked me off, which was why they lost a half of star. This one, you know there is more, but it seems things are going to be ok. So I liked that. Would I recommend, sure, they are fun and different. Why not!"
"The reason I read this book is being that I read R.L. Stine books growing up. Apparently my taste has changed.
The book was alright. As you can tell, it is an omnibus of 'Dangerous Girls' & 'The Taste of Night'. 'Dangerous Girls' was the better one. As for 'The Taste of Night', eh, it was hard to follow at times. It skipped around to different times periods within a month then a two week period. Like I said, hard to follow.
"I really liked this book. It was fast paced and did not drag. Each story flowed right into the next. The sexual content is not graphic, but enough for you to get the idea. If you like the supernatural realm, you will enjoy the book.
The book is three Novellas: Kept: A Warlock named Dayne and a Were-Cat named Greta (oh, excuse me Therian, you'll get it when you read the book). Clamed: A Vampire named Anthony and his human love Charlee. (last but not least, my favorite one) Mated: A Were-Wolf named Cole and his human (tanted with Vampire blood) Jane.
All the characters intercept each other in each story. I really liked that about this book.
The author has another book of The Preternaturals called SAVE MY SOUL (I thought this one was the better of the two). However, the book can be read alone. There is no pesky cliff hangers!"
"I found this book was better than the first. Only because it was about more of what we know on the Television series and not a mixture of both the books & TV.
In this one you come to see why Damon is the way he is. (Although, you have to love him both ways) You also get to read how Stefan meets Lexi and how he got his taste for the furry creatures. (He gets a little 'bunny' into him)
I gave it 4 stars (as I did with the first one). A must read for the fan of the TV series."
"I gave this book 3 stars, only for the fact that I thought the book was an instructional guide on different technics on playing Classical music. Though there are few performance notes to guide you along. It does consists of many classical pieces that any piano lover will love to learn.
Ex. Beethoven's Fur Elise. The whole piece is there.
It is a nice book of pieces to play. I am not unhappy that I bought the book. However I do wish there were more hints on how to achieve those difficult hand position moves."
"Honestly I did not like this one as much as the other two. However it was written more like the characters of the show then the books. Really they need to make up their mind which one they want to portray.
In my opinion, the books are quick reads, but not a MUST READ as are some other books. Watch the TV show instead, way better eye candy there! 3 stars"
"I found it was a lot like Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies. It follows the original story, just changing a few things here and there for the vampire effect.
I would only suggest, if you want the full extent of finding the hilarity of the writing, it NOT to read the actual Emma first (which I did). So it was like rereading it again, which made me drag on the reading.
"Personally I read this book just for Serena Robar's writings. I had read her 'Half Blood Vampire Novels'. This book was suppose to have one of the characters from those books. Which it did....Carl, for those who also read those books. I did read the others, but my main objective was Serena's.
The first two stories where ok. But ended really quick. My favorite was Ms. Robar's story of Sydney. Mainly again, because of Carl. Her story made more since beings I had read the other books.
Overall, if I had to read this book again, I would skip to the end to the best one. It is a quick read, that may be my most positive thing to say. It was ok, but a one timer."
"First I would like to say that I agree with Samantha. I do not think that she ruined the book for anyone. Honestly if someone did not read the first three or did not see that the fall of Galbatorix would be in this book.....I would suggest reading the first three, or REreading the first three. It was pretty much all but said. What else did anyone else think would happen in the final book?? Uhmmm?
I would like to begin my review by saying this....I have loved this series from the start (I even named one of my cats Eragon). I found out about the book when the movie was made and wanted to read Eragon before seeing the movie. Which, I will say, I am glad I did. The movie distorted the book. (although, Jeremy Irons as Brom was the best) I had no idea that there was even a second book or that more was coming out. Once I did, I went directly to the library and got Eldest. I fell in love. I waited, and waited, and waited for Brisingr. I preordered it. I loved it too. I could not wait for Inheritance. Preordered it as well. I reread the first three (again, for it was not the first time I reread them). I started Inheritance and like the others it was action packed, heart wrenching.....dare I say, comical. I laughed, cried, laughed some more. After the great fall of the king, it did pick up pace. However there are some things that truly did not need to drawn out.
Now I will try not to RUIN the book....but I must say, the ending was disappointing. I felt heart broken, frustrated, and down right ticked off!! There are things that I expected, and expected because of the way the author portrayed things that were to come. Those things did not. Things were left.....unresolved. An Epilogue would have sufficed. But none is there. There will not be another book. Although the author said he would not let Alagaesia itself diminish. But what of those characters that were so important and not finished. Yes I mean Eragon!! I love him! I read a review and the person wrote: "HOW. COULD. YOU!" I fully agree.
I do not believe I have said anything that would give the plot away. Of course if you feel that way....oh well. I will warn those who are going to read Inheritance. Do not skip through the book as I did looking for when the introduction of the Great Green Dragon will appear, DON'T. I will tell you. It does not occur till page 785. That's correct, in the monster of a 849 page book, it does not happen till page 785!! So, just wait. (and please, if you did not know there was a Green Dragon after looking at the cover, well, for shame on you).
I am giving the book 4 stars. I still love Eragon and cannot bring myself to go lower. However, I had given the other three 5 stars. I do not regret reading these books. I have all 4 in hard cover and first editions to boot. But it will be a long time till I can bring myself to read them again. I am in mourning. Yes, read them, love them, cry for them. But be warned, even in a good book, things do not go the way you think they will."
"I really had enjoyed Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side so naturally I wanted to follow though and read this one.
I did like it, however I found that the backbone Jessica had at the end of the last book quickly disappeared and was more jellyfish then before. Not only this, but I found that it was easy enough to figure out who her enemies where (I'd elaborate more, but do not want to give anything away). This book also switches characters though the story which include her friend Mindy (perhaps her story should have been written separately, but it was what kept me going).
All in all, it was good, but not as good as the first. I also would recommend reading 'The Wedding of Antanasia Jessica Packwood and Lucius Valeriu'* right before reading this one. It helps put things in prospective.
I'm giving it 3 stars only because of the first book and how I liked the characters. If it where stand alone, maybe 2.
*You can find the ebook on the authors website or find a link on goodreads. I would put it, but am unsure what the policy is on PBS regarding this."
"Honestly, I hated the book. I have never hated a book so much. I found the author suffered from a severe case of ADD. She jumped around to different topics to where you had to sit and think where was she going with this and why she did not finish with the topic she was on.
The jumping around from one thing to another made it hard to focus or feel anything for the characters. If you had an inkling of a feeling, it was soon lost by jumping to something else.
If, and that is the big word here, if she would have written the book in a different manner, like finishing a thought every once in a while, perhaps it would have been a good book. The plot was decent, but again not finishing up some key points stole away from the meaning. And the closing of the book, especially with the villain was not complete.
I was so angry after reading this I wanted to burn the book, but I did not, since it was a library book.
To those who liked it, I am at a loss of words. I found this book without feeling and no heart."
"I personally did not like this book. I found it had way to may details on the interworks of a whale. If you want that kind of information, read this book. If you like mundane details about whales and the sea, read the book. But if you want to be entertained, read something else, like Don Quixote.
I only read it because it was a classic. But I have read so much better. I gave it 1 star (and that was being nice)."
"I was really excited to get this book and to read it. I loved the Twilight books, but as anyone who does, can admit, there are some things you could joke about (although I still do love those books). I had read some reviews on other sites about this book and they said it was hilarious. Great, I could use a chuckle.
Two chapters in, I am SO bored. The main character is a pretentious snot. Not even a funny pretentious snot. Just down right rude and, well, ridiculous. I just could not read anymore. I skimmed the book, hoping something would jump out that would keep me reading. Nothing, absolutely Nothing!
I gave it the lowest rating possible. I have a lot more books I need to read and I know they will be a lot more stimulating. Perhaps someone else can find the humor in this book, because I surely did not."
"I have read Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber and LOVED them! So of course I was going to read her new series. And I loved this one too! Many may disagree, but I don't care. I was not looking for another Vampire Kisses type book or the typical spin on werewolves! I wanted a little something different. And that's what I got. You'll either love it or hate it. It kept my interest, which sometimes is hard to do. If you liked her other books and you can actually let go of what you THINK it may be like, then read it. If not......oh well, I'm sure you'll find something else. This is just my thoughts and not yours. Read or not to read.....eh, you get it!"
