2.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's another boon in a series but it's not necessary to know previous stories to follow and understand this one. Not that there is much to follow and understand. Plot is simple, maybe even too simple, and it's emotionally empty. Reading Torkel's story I cried, with Lindsey's I laughed. With this one I was slightly annoyed. It is competent but a bit boring. No emotional depth and some I consequences. Personally I feel publication has been rushed and book needs more working on. My issues concern The Butcher, whose story is left hanging until he appears, suddenly, at the end. Than Kyle's powers. Would have been nice to know his powers, powers of his father and his species when she actually talks about them and not just introduced them, matter of factory, in the middle. And Vee'n? Superfluous to the plot. And Arlo, and Nico and couple of others who just pop out, get defined and described and than just... disappear. Annoying, to say the least.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way to short and vague, 28 April 2016
It's an informative book but way too short and muddles. It should give more detailed information about experiments. Author seems almost afraid to write too much for reason, I don't know, maybe repulsing the reader? There is nothing about experiments at Nanking and numeration of different units is so unclear that at some stage I just stopped paying any attention. And that's wrong for a book on a subject where attention to details should be of paramount importance.
Unit 731 often made dr Mengele look like a Good Samaritan but there isn't enough of information about that. If we don't put the grisly details, the inhuman conditions and experiments, how are we to prove the insanity of it all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately it's predictable and flat, 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always given VAL five stars but it has been a mistake. This is 30th instalment and unfortunately it's identical as last fifteen. First books were longer, more packed with action and twists in plot. But now we don't even have Hunters anymore. It's just a story that could be written by anyone in a week, and that with a full time job.
Dear author, either kill of this series or get serious. You continue introducing vampires from different ages and cultures, each different than previous, like you were trying to prove that you DO do some new research. And you group it in three or four paragraphs interspersed throughout the story at equal intervals. By the way, the thing with statues of horses, how they represent how a person died? That's a myth debunked hundreds of times. Pose has nothing to do with death but with ability of the sculptor - a statue of a horse rearing is extremely hard to balance and you need a very good artist to achieve it first in clay than in metal, or stone. If you need a proof that this theory you quote is untrue than look at the most beautiful monument of a rider on a rearing horse: King Peter the Great. Shame he died from gangrene in his bed and not in a battle.
So going back to the book...
Stop introducing new characters. Check who, from know associates isn't mated yet and write it up. Finish off with Elizabeth and Acron and kill the series. Maximum five more books, and even this is a stretch. And more than 100 pages cos it's a rip off otherwise.
Good luck and maybe I'll be back with 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good as an introduction to the subject, 28 April 2016
It's a good short book about an atrocity on an enormous scale. It gives all the basic informations an allows you to gauge your own reaction to events described. If you find you can't stomach it, it's fine. Book is informative enough to ground you and allows for making informed judgements. If you think you can stomach more, you can move to more detailed descriptions of longer narrations.
It would do with more editing as some words need splitting between lines as they are too long and spread unevenly in the line leaving big gaps. It's annoying when you read. Pictures and caption land usually on different pages so there is definitely room for improvements. On the plus side, someone did a good job at proofreading as there are almost no spelling mistakes.
I can recommend as introduction to the subject everyone should know about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but beautiful, 8 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I give five stars to all books in this series as I just love it. This one is short and very simple, no cliffhangers or suspense. Just pure love and feel good factor. It could easily be extended into a bigger story but it's a novella not a novel so fair is fair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, as usual in this series, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm always waiting impatiently at the next instalment in the series. This one does not disappoint either. My five stars are not only for this book but for the whole series. I'm looking forward to reading more about Sion at some point, I think there is another love story in the air. And that female D'Aire, hmmm, that could be interesting as well. Cos so far we only have males with female Elites. Would be nice to have more male Elites with other species. Cos Krytos isn't enough.

Everything you need in a good book: interesting story, strong emotions and a heap of good humour. I laughed, I cried and I enjoyed. A must.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bits good, ending lame, 20 Aug. 2015
Frustrating story. Very good beginning but after two pages it got just plain ridiculous. Beware: spoiler alert.
1. She is human and yet she gets on with understanding his language way to easy.
2. They keep away from each other all the way and yet end up having sex within two minutes when in VR.
3. He claims her and she goes with it faster than a supernova.
4. No ending whatsoever.
It's a well written thing, author has an easiness with words. But problems with logic.
Good sketch. Now need a serious work. And it might amount to something. That's why two stars instead of one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story phenomenally written, 18 Aug. 2015
It's been a long time since I read a really good book. Judging I spent every free minute since last night reading it, I think it deserves more than just 'good' as qualifier.
Plot is very clear, action fast paced and characters believable. Full of humour but also emotionally charged. Really good. Got it on unlimited but I think I'll buy it.
