Taken by Benedict Jacka
Taken - Benedict Jacka,Gildart Jackson

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was really good! I had never heard of this series until my friend Anne decided to host a read along on her blog, Books of My Heart, this year. Since the pace was set at only one book per month, I decided that I could make enough room in my reading schedule to fit this series in without too much work. That has turned out to be a fantastic decision because I have had a great time with each installment.

I really like both Alex and Luna and I was really happy that this book focused so heavily on Luna and the other apprentices. It was great meeting a few new characters and seeing a little more about how their world works. Luna has now completely committed to her role as an apprentice and is working incredibly hard to meet the demands put on her. I really liked getting to see the relationships between the apprentices.

I never tire of watching Alex in action. His ability to see into the future is so unique in useful as it is used in this story. I love the way he is able to make smart decisions quickly and takes responsibility for his actions. Alex is really just a great guy who is always looking to save the day and take care of those who need his help and he does it quite competently.

I thought that the mystery in this book was very well done. I had no idea what was going on with the disappearing apprentices but I had a blast going along for the ride to find out. There was plenty of action and some completely unexpected antics to keep things really interesting. I love that this story kept me guessing until the very end.

Gildart Jackson does a fantastic job with this series. He is the voice of Alex in my mind and I do think that he really does bring the character to life. I think that he does a great job with all of the character voices and dialogue always flowed nicely. I think he has a very pleasant reading voice and I enjoyed listening to his narration for hours at a time.

I would recommend this series to others. This is the third book in the Alex Verus series which I do think would be best read in order if at all possible. I can't wait to get started on the next book in the series very soon.

Initial Thoughts
This was good. I liked getting to see some of the other apprentices. It feels like Alex is taking more of a leadership role and I really like that he doesn't care what others think of him. There was a lot of excitement and a bit of a mystery. The narrator did a fantastic job with this book.

Fantastic Start To A New Series
Jackson - Emily March

Jackson is an outstanding western romance by Emily March.  Ms. March has given readers a well-written book.  I suppose this book is a crossover between this new series and another series by Ms. March.  We meet delightful new characters while also getting a visit with characters from the older series.  Jackson is a musician/songwriter that just lost visitation with his daughter when his cousin calls him to meet him in Texas.  Caroline is struggling with the fact that her husband no longer knows her and to top it off, he's in love with someone else.   Caroline and Jackson's story is packed with drama, humor and spice.  I totally loved reading Jackson and can't wait for the next book in the series.  Jackson is book 1 of The McBrides of Texas Series and book 16 of the Eternity Springs Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
