Book Description

27 Nov 2008 Servant
Gabrielle Cody has accepted her destiny as God's warrior, charged to destroy all evil, but she wasn't prepared to see Detective Luther Cross ever again. He's the beacon of reality in her life, the one thing that makes her feel human, like a real woman. But Gaby must resist involvement with Luther now, for she is protecting streetwalkers. Her life of retribution is far too dangerous, and this time it's not just their hearts that won't come out unscathed. From the author of Servant: The Awakening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great story & Characters but needed a dictionary to get through! 17 Sep 2008
By E. Clifford - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy Lori Foster's books (aka L.L. Foster)and this new series by her is great and shows wonderful potential as a series. Good plot, interesting characters, wonderful tension and chemistry between the main and secondary characters, but the reason I only gave it 3 stars is because I kept having to stop and pick up my dictionary to figure out what the hell was happening! I actually wrote down the words that dragged me away from the story, there were 31!

I feel I am a fairly well read, intelligent human being. But the words used were so grandiose they actually took away from the story, not added to it as I'm sure the author and editor hoped to achieve with an apparent overuse of a thesaurus. I'm always happy to learn new words, but I felt I was getting beat over the head with the collegiate word use and placement . . .

Some examples I copied are these: "Annoying sedulousness", "Exigous weight", "endogenous perception", "calumnious statement", "And so went the banausic nature of her life."

I hope her next book tones down the over the top words, so the flow will be better! I really like this heroine, but I don't think I can sit through another grammar course like this last book.

4.0 out of 5 stars was this a novel or a spelling test? 12 Sep 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The chronicle was superlative. The phraseology was analogous to someone stimulating their thesaurus and procuring the most unintelligible utterances obtainable.

Get the picture? When I could get past all of the hundred dollar words, it was a great story!!!!!

I don't know how the words got past the editor, but if the next volume is written the same way, I won't be going back for more. At times it got so bad I actually tried to put simple words in their place just so the text would flow better.

Someone needs to take away her "Word-A-Day" toilet paper!

4.0 out of 5 stars Servant: The Acceptance 6 Sep 2008
By Tina Stringfellow - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I was actually going to comment on this myself. I enjoyed the story a lot, but the high level vocabulary throughout the book seemed excessive and unnecessary. Tended to take away from the story as I sat thinking through the vocabulary to decide what was being said. I must say I have read master's thesis with less complicated vocabulary.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - If you like Mercy Thompson, give Gabby a try 21 Mar 2009
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Plot Summary: Gabrielle Cody is a paladin, a holy warrior in a fight against evil. God calls her with a pain in her gut and gives her supernatural strength, endurance, and vision. In this second installment, Gabby lives in the attic above a whore-house, and protects the hookers in-between answering holy summons to destroy evil. Detective Luther Cross has tracked her down again, and he must choose what to believe; is Gabby on a mission from God, or is she a psychotic lunatic? In addition to her building romance with Luther, Gabby finds that her circle of improbable friends is growing, which is a surprise only to her.

I wanted to read this book because Amazon choose it as their number one romance pick for 2008. I have to say they have good, if unconventional, taste. The romance in this book is more like a tug-of-war, rather than the traditional boy meets girl, boy gets girl set up. Maybe that's why it feels so fresh and exciting to read.

The heroine is lovable like Oscar the Grouch. Gabby is a true social misfit, and she has no filter between her brain and her mouth, so the most outlandish and cutting comments spew forth without thought. Just being her friend requires the patience and understanding of a saint. On the other hand, they all know that Gabby would spit in the Grim Reaper's eye before allowing any harm to touch an innocent. She is a walking contradiction, everything noble and pure we'd want in our superhero, but also cruel, scared, and insecure, like a mean dog who has been beaten down often and hard.

Luther Cross cannot let Gabby go, and neither can he deny the strangeness he witnesses in her presence. Her ability to pinpoint evil is either a gift from above, or too much of a chilling coincidence. The romance between Luther and Gabby takes several huge steps in this book, however it is far from a done deal. I'm looking forward to seeing this relationship continue to develop in book three, "Servant: The Kindred," due out August 2009. I recommend reading book one, "Servant: The Awakening", first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 in the Servant-series: Even better than book 1 24 Nov 2008
By S. Fischer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gaby has grown up a complete outsider since she not only is an orphan, but she also has paranormal abilities that make people fear and dislike her. For as long as she can remember, she could sense evil from afar and see the bad in people. She has unusual strength, speed and fighting skills, but when her ability kicks in, it comes with severe pain and makes her mostly blind to whatever else is going on around her. When she was 17, she met a priest who finally helped her understand that she wasn't mad or evil and from then on she saw her paranormal powers as a gift and duty from god, meant to help her fight evil. But after the priest's death she has been alone, always on the outside and at risk from the law that would see her as a mad killer.
In book 1, 'The Awakening', Gaby made friends with Mort and met Detective Luther Cross. They felt very attracted to each other but her less than law-abiding lifestyle made it impossible to let him know too much about her abilities and activities. When she thought that Mort had died and was afraid that Luther might arrest her, Gaby left. She moved into a bad neighbourhood in order to protect the prostitutes living there. But Mort isn't dead and neither he nor Luther can forget her. When Luther finds her, they are even more strongly attracted to each other than before and when he tries to get Gaby to open up, she lets him see more of her unusual abilities. But when she starts hunting a serial killer who tortures and murders prostitutes, Luther's belief in her and his duties as a policeman are soon in conflict. But if he doesn't trust her, there will be more deaths - and the killer has his eyes on both Gaby and Luther as his next victims...
Just like the first book in the series, the second is a great mix between dark urban fantasy, paranormal romance and crime novel, with humour, action, depth, great characters and an intelligent plot. I liked it even more than the first and can't wait for the series to be continued.
