The series started out well but I think the author has got a little bored of writing it. Didn't love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice bit of fluff, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's ok. It's free so you're not losing anything by reading it. It doesn't add anything to the story as a whole though, particularly. I think it's probably just a deleted chapter?
Anyway, nice bit of fluff, doesn't advance the plot or anything meaningful. You won't miss anything essential to the storyline by not reading it.

Third book in the series and still enjoying it. The writing isn't the best stylistically, and it's full of silly typos and errors, but this isn't going to be some great literary classic, it's just an enjoyable non-demanding read if you can ignore the publication quality.

I liked Introductions, and I liked this one too. It moved on nicely from the first book.

I loved this one. Free download hooked me in to the series and I enjoyed this story.

Disappointed in this, I LOVED the first few books and I feel like they are going downhill. This one was my least favourite of the Ghostbird book series so far.

I didn't buy it, I got a free copy of it. It's not worth 99p for 17 pages, when a whole book in the series is £3, so I wouldn't have wanted to spend money on it as it's just a bit of fluff.
I'm not complaining, I wouldn't expect much plot in 17 pages, but if you can find the free download I'd say read it, if not, you're not missing much of anything, its not value for money even at 99p.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh. Borrow it from the library and save your money., 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing. I've been waiting for ages for this to come out and had it preordered, and it was a let down. Basically a book about a random cab driver. Nothing really progresses with the boys, there's no more emotional or romantic development to speak of from the last book, pretty much a filler book with hardly any time with the Academy boys together, or so it feels. The cab driver's all up in there though. Kayli's still blowing hot and cold and using people. To say this series was supposed to be faster moving in the relationship areas it's almost ground to a halt.

I feel like CL is dialing the Scarab Beetle series in, if she's not that interested in them how can we be? The writing standard is going downhill.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for a nice lighthearted fun read, 7 Oct. 2014

If you are looking for a nice lighthearted fun read, pass this one by! Keep walking. Nothing to see here.

Good idea for a story, well expressed, and I've given it four stars for that, to be fair to the author.

There are a few books on my kindle that I love as old friends, and happily read again and again. This is not going to be one of those books. I've alternated whilst reading this book between thoughts of 'how stupid are these people to fall for such shenanigans', to 'omg, the trauma of it all'.

I won't be reading this again, I will be deleting it off my kindle and am now off to find something slightly more jolly to read to cheer myself up. Maybe something about the Zombiepocalypse, or a sick kitten.

This review is from: Buttons and Scissors (Pro) (App)
Fun, addictive, pointless, worth downloading. I got this free and found it fairly addictive. The harder levels are really quite hard, but fun all the same.
