Overall the story was action packed
on 6 September 2010
The problem with this series and others like it is that they all kind of run together, especially if you read them from the beginning and have to wait for each new release in the series. There were times when reading Ashes that it mirrored Ward's "Blackdagger" series so much that I actually had to stop and keep reminding myself that this was not a part of that story. I'm not saying the name's and circumstances are the same, I'm talking about the whole "Order", the headquarters, the fact that the key players all live under the same roof with their wife's/husbands, the breedmate marks and so forth.
I guess all of us feel that way at some point. I know sometimes I think "Goodness I just read too much" because it really is difficult sometimes to separate series, and to remember them clearly when the next in line is released. The Vamp/Otherworldly series are the toughest for me because they all mirror each other in a lot of ways.
Overall the story was action packed, it read easy; the writing was superb, the romance/chemistry between Claire and Andreas was obvious and the openings for future books was clear and entertaining...but I just don't think the story is entertaining enough to remember
