5.0 out of 5 stars Be careful what you wish for..., 21 April 2013
This review is from: Enter the Dragons (Paperback)
Sir Roger and his squire Timothy wanting to fight some mythical creature get more than the bargain for when they come across a dragon nursery crash landed on earth. Action right from the start makes this a real page-turner and very hard to put down. Don't want to give away any plot but I love the dragons and their technology...and it is refreshing that they are the more advanced creatures here...wouldn't mind reading more about their world...get writing Mr Coppinger!

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry in brilliant form..., 13 Feb. 2009
well not the character he gets some bad beatings...but the story is just excellent. A joy to read a well thought out and written story line. A must read for all Harry Dresden fans.
Yes, there are plenty of loose ends but as another reviewer said thats life for you. Also just makes you want to get your teeth into the next one.
Just read it you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where was the editor?, 13 Feb. 2009
I suffered through half the book. I couldn't take it anymore, while the story was halfway enjoyable the writting is beyond bad...the constent moaning of the main character that she isn't human anymore, a hand hurts, a shoulder is painful and not to mention that she has to supress a laugh and a giggle in scary situations is just plain annoying. I'm surprised that the editor hasn't picked up on verdict don't bother reading it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninspired, 31 Jan. 2009
Dark Moon (Nightcreature 3)
I so wanted to love it, but I just couldn't. I read a lot of paranormal fiction, in all its forms but I just could not warm to Lori Handeland's Nightcreature Series.
The heroine is boring and I couldn't care less if Elise is fine and lives happily ever after or not. In this third installment, we yet again have a socially inept woman with tons of issues, a hunky man (not that I mind, but it gets repetitive) and a big threat to the Jaeger-Suchers. However, after dealing with trust issues and a bit of shooting all is well.
The usage of German in the book, is thank God limited but even at that is heavy handed and sometimes just wrong.

There are much better books out there, don't waste your money on these.
Try Kelley Armstrong's "Otherworld" series or Carrie Vaughn's "Kitty" series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Waking Lazarus, 17 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Waking Lazarus (Paperback)
Man, was I surprised (in a good way). A friend if mine gave me this book and I thought a Christian thriller is not really my thing but I was proved wrong.
Hines has a beautiful writing style so that the story catches you from the first sentence and keeps you going to the last when you come up for breath.
Read it you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Brotherhood, 25 Jun. 2007
Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward

This is Book 4 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. To get the full impact of the story I highly recommend reading the books in order. Much of the background story is prepared in previous books and to fully enjoy them you just need to know what happened before.

The books are fun and innovative. The dialogue is modern and the warriors are to die for. The series is quite violent and edgy but you get very nice romantic elements that will make you smile and cry.

The only thing I found a bit off-putting at first was that the book begins with a glossary. J.R Ward creates a certain amount of vocabulary that the vampires use but you get past that because the characters are great. I thought it was brilliant that the author obviously spend a good bit of time creating this world, the politics, the rules, and how people have to live their lives. I felt really sorry for the Marissa, the heroine of this story. Even though she is from the upper class she really doesn't have any rights and basically has to comply with what her brother wants, as her parents are dead. It is nice to get such a rich world to read about and moan about the injustices.

The Black Dagger Brotherhood are six vampire warriors who protect their race form a evil called The Omega and his disciples, The Lesser. The Omega wants to destroy all vampires and uses any force necessary.

In Lover Revealed the story concentrates on an ally of the Brotherhood. Butch O'Neal, who is an ex-cop and the only human ever, allowed within the Brotherhood without being an actual member. He is madly in love with the vampire Marissa but thinks she is out of his league. When he saves a vampire from the Lesser he get captured by them and tortured badly. Now only Marissa and Vishous(one of the brothers) can save him but it might just be too late.

I loved the book and can't wait to read more. It truly is a great series and the characters and story really grip you. Definitely five out of five stars.

Books in order:

1. Dark Lover

2. Lover Eternal

3. Lover Awakened

4. Lover Revealed

5. Lover Unbound

Dangerous Games: Number 4 in series (Riley Jenson Guardian)
Dangerous Games: Number 4 in series (Riley Jenson Guardian)
by Keri Arthur
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars not so dangerous, 17 Jun. 2007
As a frequent reader of paranormal romance, I'm always on the look out for new authors. Especially when the books involve vampires and werewolves. I was therefore, quite intrigued by Keri Arthur's idea of a half vampire half werewolf heroine.

Keri Arthur creates her own supernatural world within our known world and introduces new rules that can be somewhat startling. There are vampires created in labs, mental powers enhanced by drugs, and werewolves who have a very enhanced sex drive, but at least she sticks to the old one vampires can't go out in sunlight.

The main character Riley and her twin brother Rohan work as agents for the Directorate of other Races. They are trained killers and make sure that no bad guys threaten humans or supernatural beings. However, not only do they use violence but also sex to get information.

Someone is killing women. They are all missing their small finger and are gutted but oddly enough they have a smile on her face. Riley's investigation leads her to a club that is not quite what it seems. To get into the club she might have to do more than she bargained for.

As far as the story goes it is well paced and a good little who done it plot. I didn't really take to the main character. That might be due the fact that it is book number 4 in the series. Also as much as I enjoy the odd sexual interlude there was way too much of it that wasn't even necessary for the story line.

I wouldn't run out and get the other books. It is just a 2 out of 5 because the murder story and fight scenes were good.
