With SHADOW REAPER, Feehan has managed to improve a series I already enjoyed. The part I liked, the sexy and dark vibe, was maintained, but the main characters felt more realistic and not so over-the-top. Also, the very original world continues to grow, and I find myself looking forward to all of the Ferraro siblings’ stories!
With it’s strong hero and sweet heroine, SHADOW RIDER checks off many of the boxes that I love in a romance, plus, it takes place in Chicago! Though not the focus, Feehan has created an interesting mythology, and given the reader side characters’ stories to look forward to as well!
When I closed this book I had to take some time to process my feeling on it before writing down my thoughts. I enjoy shifter romances and am typically able to reason with the aggressive and violent nature of the heroes due to their being half-animal. Sometimes the attitudes of the heroes can be a bit much and the sex a bit too domineering for my tastes but usually that’s balanced out with the heroine’s ability to stand up for herself and the hero’s ability to know when to calm down or back off.
Whenever I see a new Rainshadow series book come out I admit I get a little excited for more dust bunny adventures. I know, I know they are the sidekicks/adorable pets of the main characters who are fabulous and tough and everything I’d want in a heroine. But I love them.
‘ve only ever read one other Anita Blake novel and after reading that book I experienced the first time ever wanting to unread a story due to reason to long to write here. Since then, I’ve been hesitant to even pick up the first few books of this series which are supposed to be excellent according to everyone I’ve spoken to about the series. I decided to give JASON a chance as I was prepared for the random sexual encounters, throngs of characters, and over explaining of Anita’s relationships.
THE HOT ZONE was one of those books that sort of fits into two genres. Its a paranormal romance of sorts yet it is also a sci-fi story set on a futuristic Earth colony. I had some trouble understanding exactly where Harmony was located. Are they on a moon once inhabited by aliens or some random planet far away from Earth? I really couldn’t figure it out but that didn’t hinder my enjoyment of this strange new world.
Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series reshapes are world with soaring magic and brutal darkness, and ARCHANGEL’S LEGION certainly spans both those highs and lows. From angels playing catch to human masses watching as supernatural forces decide their fate, Singh has a masterful ability to anchor her magic in our own world. While the main characters didn’t necessarily surprise me in this book, flying through the streets of New York alongside angels was as exhilarating as ever.
