4.0 out of 5 stars Iris 3 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Iris is a novella which gives you an insight into the decisions Iris made which lead her to the point in time that Gabe enters her life. The rest you will know from reading Captivate Me. I would say that although this could be read as a standalone, it is far better to be read in addition to Book 1. By itself it is interesting. Following on from Book 1 means that it sheds light onto the whole perception of a character. This novella is a brilliant addition to the series and definitely adds to the story. Definitely recommended for all fans of the Captivated series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gave more depth to the characters but not a lot of new info. 5 Sept. 2014

Iris, Novella: The Captivated Series By S.J. Pierce
4 out of 5 stars

Very original, a prologue in novella form to the first book in the series, “Captivate Me”, from the villain’s point of view. A completely new reading experience for me that helped flesh out the characters from the book in a different light. It is a really great idea in my opinion and a twist that kept me intrigued and reading as it came after the first book. As with my last review I will give you a little taste of some of this authors best work…her prologue’s are very powerful and set just the right tone for what follows, a talent that many authors aspire to but few achieve, grabbing your attention in that first paragraph or two. Well here goes:

“Witches – the word can have a negative connotation. In some, the word evokes visions of darkness and satanic rituals. It’s also used as a derogative term against women, and believe me, to call me one in that way is the surest way to die, or at the very least, a spell cast on you that will make you wish you were. I prefer to be called a conjurer.

Of our kind, there are two types – conjurers of the light, and conjurers of the dark. Conjurers of the light pull their powers from the Earth and are believed to be blessed by God himself. They are one with nature, can heal and always use their powers for good. They devote their lives to living out their purpose of goodwill and helping those less fortunate.

My two sisters and I, we’re not those kind of witches.”

My reasoning for not giving it the 5 stars the book received is that it was more an explanation of what had gone on before from the villain’s viewpoint than any real new information that you couldn’t logically deduce. While I found the concept of the prologue in novella form following the book highly original, the content was somewhat predictable because I had read the book and I knew where the story was going. It is a well written novella, it just lacks some of the excitement and discovery of the book. Just one new tidbit of information, one ah-ha! moment, you couldn’t piece together without reading the book would have gotten that extra star. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it certainly gave more depth to the characters. I recommend reading it with the book. Another winner from S.J. Pierce.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great companion novel in the series 3 Sept. 2014
By Naomi @ Nomi's Paranormal Palace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Captivate earlier this year and when I saw this novella about Iris, I wanted to get to know her and find out what her real motivations were. It turned out to be a great read and really did give me a lot of answers.

Iris is a hard person to crack because of the heartache that she had suffered in the past, but throughout this story her walls began to crumble. It was interesting to see her let someone in who wasn’t her family. I met a lot of other characters as well: Iris’ sisters Rose and Lilliana, and I also found out how Kai fitted into the whole picture. I expected to meet all these people and not like them as they are evil people, but I found that they weren’t that bad and were doing something to keep their family together.

Iris was an enjoyable read and although they are the bad people in the overall storyline, I liked getting to know them better. They weren’t as evil as I thought they would be, but they were great characters nonetheless. This story has given greater depth to the whole series. Now that I am done, I am interested to see what will happen with the original characters, Kat and Gabriel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the extra info, Great addition to Captivate Me! 2 Sept. 2014
By Michelle's Paranormal Vault - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a hard review to write without spoilers for book 1 Captivate Me. So I will make this short and non-spoiler as I know some of you may not have read book 1 first, and even though this book takes place before the events in Captivated, this must be read after book one. If reading this one first it would be such a big spoiler for you, Trust me, reading Captivated first will make it so much better, some of the twist and turns and even mysteriousness of events in book 1 make it so good, but it's the not knowing part that really makes it intriguing.

This series as a whole so far is just amazing. This book just added more to it.
I can't say anything about it at all, as I said, because of spoilers.

It was written well, just like the other book, and the series that ties into this one as well. I also recommend those as well.

Overall a great paranormal book, that I couldn't put down. Just wish there was more of Gabe in this one, but was still great.

I highly recommend this, and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars thoughts on iris 5 Sept. 2014
By Hello-booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
So hard to write this without giving anything away. First I feel for Gabriel and iris. why Iris? she is afraid to love. Afraid to get close to anyone. Her love for her sisters is boundless but to love another scares the jajoobies out of her.

why Gabriel? He is so kind and trusting. So sweet and just doesn't deserve what may or may not happen. too kind for words.

here we see the true Iris the one behind the mask. The tough as nails Iris who loves and has fears and insecurities. The one who can be kind but also pretty deceiving. We see her let her walls down and take a chance.

This is a wonderful novella that shows how far one goes for love and how deeply one can love. Shows that family is truly more than just blood and that to protect ones family and make sure they are okay will always come first. A interesting story of love that you fight but is good for you and hope that there are alternatives to what may or may not occur. A captivating novella that has you hope, smile and look forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Captivate Me! 6 Sept. 2014
By Jessica Surgett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Captivate Me definitely left me intrigued by Iris so I was thrilled that there is a novella all about her past! I loved how complex Iris is as a character. In Captivate Me you go through so many emotions concerning her and her actions, but this novella explains why she did everything that she did so well. I found myself hating her, feeling sorry for her, loving her, and then hating her all over again... but most importantly I really feel like I understand her now. People aren't usually just good or bad, some things are not black and white... and this story is all about Iris and Kai's very gray morals. Also I LOVED Iris and Kai's love story. It was surprisingly sweet and endearing. I actually liked this one even better than Captivate Me, so I am excited to see what's to come for this series. 4.5 stars
