This book had a very slow and confusing start. I almost put in down and picked a different one. It's a bit too descriptive in places. Percy annoyed me at first. She was very meek and apologized too much. She does grow and gain in spine and confidence (and stops apologizing all the freaking time). I finally got more invested and interested more about halfway through the book. On the fence about continuing with the next 2 since this was such a slow start and I'm not sure if I care enough to continue.
I have been intrigued about Catullus since he was introduced. Happy he got his own story. Gemma was introduced in Rebel and I thought she was just as awesome as he was. I liked that we saw couples from the other books all make appearances in this one.
There are multiple roadblocks blocks to saving England (and the rest of the world). My compliant was there were so many. One gets figured out and overcome to be promptly replaced by another (and again, again). I admit to enjoying it, at first, but it gets old quickly and made the book drag a little for me.
Yes! I really, really liked the combination of paranormal and mystery. I liked who the big bad was too. Ryan had moments were he was a judgmental prick and others when he wasn't. I'm very curious what his story is. Rhyzkahl is intriguing. Nice end.
Very happy that I enjoyed the second as much as the first. Let's hope that continues!
Some stories worked, some were just okay, and others didn't hold my interest.
These were the best:
The Eleventh Hour by Michelle Maddox-
Enjoyed this one; however the falling in love happened quickly (but then given the length, what did I expect?)
Pilot's Forge by Patrice Sarath-
Interesting start, it kept my attention. I loved Edith's profession (Farrier). Weird end.
The Troll Bridge by Patti O'Shea-
My favorite- no insta-love in this one, just insta-like and a willingness to let's see what happens mentality.
The Gloaming Hour by Cindy Miles-
At first I thought this was a ghost story. Ending abrupt.
Time Trails by Colby Hodge-
No, this one was my favorite- Unique. I liked the idea of hunting criminals who go back to the past to alter history and those who hunt them and fix it. Yeah!
Future Date by A.J. Menden-
Well, this one was a favorite too! The storyline has some reality to it (not the time travel, but a future with limits on children and the obvious preference for boys leading to a large gender gap).
