1-0 out of 5 stars Other than Kenyon, awful compilation
I didn't like one story in this book other than Kenyon's, and even that wasn't her best.The book was actually so bad that I resent the money I paid for it.And to add insult to injury, the other book I bought that was a compilation including Kenyon was even WORSE.Just a total waste of money.Two of the stories are written in the first person -- and come on, are you a 12 year old writing a story for composition class? -- and all of them are hokey and, to be blunt, lame.

2-0 out of 5 stars severely disappointed
Severely disappointed is the only way to describe my reaction to this anthology.I ran right out to buy this book because of all the positive reviews.Save your money and buy it used.

5-0 out of 5 stars Some are silver and the others gold, but all GREAT!
To say that I was looking forward to this book for the authors that I already know and love is an understatement.I couldn't wait to read L.A. Banks' story and Sherilyn Kenyon's.However, I have to say that I not only enjoyed the stories from the authors that I am already familiar with and love, but I enjoyed the stories from the authors who were previously unknown to me as well.What a great introduction to something new!I am definitely going to be broadening my book collection with some new authors and of course will continue on with the ones I love and know already.This was a book filled with interesting, romantic and exciting tales and I would recommend it to anyone.KUDOS to these writers for a capital accomplishment.

4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding paranormal mystery
Harper Connelly and her step brother Tolliver have been invited by Dr. Clyde Nunley to demonstrate her power for his anthropology class.She can find the dead and determine how they died and their names.He has an old graveyard at Bingham College which hasn't been used for 50 years and recently the records of the old church have been found giving the cause of death for those buried there. The records have been sealed so he is sure that like others he has invited for demonstrations he can show that she is a fake or at least not reliable.Good characters, good plot nicely done and some humor as she spooks the class and Dr. Nunley by being right all the time and by finding Tabahia's body double parked in a grave. (She had been hired to try to find her when she disappeared a year ago from her home in Nashville, Bingham is in Memphis.) And more humor when she weirds out the corner. I still like her southern vampire series better but this is very good and a little better than her first book in the series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Harris never disappoints!
Harris never disappoints and Grave Surprise is no exception. Harris's prose is both quirky and smooth as butter, and these characters really grabbed hold of me. Made me laugh, made me tear up, made me turn the pages faster and faster, and sigh when I reached the last. It's wonderful to read a writer who knows her craft as well as this. I can hardly wait for her next!

4-0 out of 5 stars Lightening Can Strike Twice
In this, the second in Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly series, we learn oh so much more about Harper, her paranormal ability to sense the dead and how they passed, Harper's childhood, and most tantalizingly, her relationship with her stepbrother Tolliver. It's an excellent weekend read. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great reads ruined by horrible characters
The other reviewers will tell you about the book.I've read most of Preston and Child's works, including the other two books in this trilogy, and they are a good read.What gets very old and nauseating is the continual saps to modern feminism.I guess it's a necessity to get published today, but you'd think that at least SOME male authors would get tired of grovelling just to get published.I guess most people will sell their souls for money.Just about all the men in P and L's books are either wimps, effiminate, weak, bumbling, stupid (or liars or murderers), cry-babies, scared of their own shadows, and thoroughly unlikable (even Pendergast has his moments).The women, of course, are, without exception, tough, brilliant, shrewd, fearless, always right, on the rise to the top, always outsmarting the men, able to knock out a 7 foot, 300 pound man with a single karate chop to the neck (forgive the slight hyperbole), totally unfeminine, and just as unlikeable as the men.The stories are very good; it's unfortunate Preston and Child couldn't have come up with better, more realisticly human, less insulting characters.This slop may play in New York and California, but in Texas we still want our men to be men and our women to be women.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great trilogy
Preston and Childs have ended this trilogy with a great high adventure read. Agent Pendergast is a most intriguing central character as are the supporting cast members.The ending leaves one to believe that there could be yet another novel.....????
5-0 out of 5 stars A fitting conclusion to the trilogy...but is it really the end?
This book was billed as the capper to the Pendergast series, when all of the plot threads left by "Dance of Death" would be neatly sewed up. Much to my delight, the authors were apparently seduced into keeping things going. Not to give the plot away, but I doubt that we've seen the last of Diogenes, and the last sentence in the book just screams "continuation."

3-0 out of 5 stars Doesnt age like wine
The book is well written but never delivers the punch it tries to build. It borders on 'who cares?' as it drags and drags on. The new generation of readers will not get the stuggle of a man living in a futuristic 70's though wriiten in the 50's. Its supposed to take place in the seventies which it clearly is not.
1-0 out of 5 stars Snoooooooze
I thought "I am Legend" was a real snooze - pretty boring actually. I also thought it wasn't very well thought out. Matheson poses some questions throughout the story but never answers them. So you never really know how the plague starts or why. You never fully understand how it spread and how the main character ends up where he is. Then you never understand why the woman het meets is the way she is. Then the ending is sort of like "oh well, it's about time to wrap this up - I know, let's just kill off the main character, that'll do." I was very disappointed. I tried the next story and found it to be even more disappointing and so I stopped reading the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Maybe just a little too much hyperbole
This is actually the original novel (170 pages) and some additional short stories written over the next thirty five years (the last in 1989).

This was my absolute favorite book of the series. It wraps up all of the loose ends, and it's the most beautiful story of all!I just love the three sisters, and I hope their stories resurface in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars Face the Fire
Nora Roberts once more hits 10 stars with this trilogy.If you love Roberts, this is one of her finest!

4-0 out of 5 stars Face the Fire (Three Sisters Trilogy)
Nora Roberts does it again, this book can stand alone or as the final one in the series, the characters are interesting and "real". The plot lines are fast moving and keep your interest.A really fine summer read for pure enjoyment ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars predictable but good
This book lacks the supernatural element in the Sookie books, but it was still a very driven mystery. I enjoyed it, but I felt the ending was too predictable. I didn't feel any real buildup in suspense. I enjoyed learning about Harper and Tolliver more than the acutual mystery. I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of Charlaine Harris.

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting New Series
I like Charlaine Harris in her darker mood.This book will probably appeal to fans of her Lily Bard series rather than her Teagarden series.The heroine is pretty screwed up and the power she has is not a comfortable one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good
i love Harris's Sookie Stackhouse seris so i gave this a try and i loved it. it was fast paced and full of mystery.i love Harris's writing stlye and her chracters. she tied things up real nice at the end. i recomend for a good weekend read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Exhilarating!
I didn't think this book could top the first one, but it was also amazing. Ripley's story is about falling in love, finding yourself, and there's also an amazing battle scene at the end. A definite must read!
3-0 out of 5 stars Kind of boring, isn't it?
Well, I love Nora Roberts, and I really like Dance Upon the Air, but this one I found kind of boring. I love witches, but Ripley seems kind of too-bitchy. I know the bitchy woman and the understanding man is a must have for any romance novel, but this one seems kind of S and M if you know what I mean. But it is worth reading if you want to complete the trilogy, but the Gallaghers of Ardmore is much better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Magic @ Best
I think I loved this book as much if not more than I loved 'Dance Upon The Air'.MacAllister Booke aka Mac was the perfect absentminded professor.I loved how he existed in his own little world.He's so rich and so precise yet his work isn't.His findings @ most are nonexistent but the slight percent that he finds keeps him going.I loved and appreciated how Ripley,a woman so practical and down to earth would be attracted to him.She found his klutziness and absentminded nature appealing.She also finds that he brings out the best in her.My favorite of the 2 as you can tell is Mac.He reminds me so much of myself that I couldn't help but love him.Besides Nell and Zack,he's my favorite character. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Critics after life after death...?
I have no way of understanding how someone could not love such a life's work as this one. An artist might have to die to get famous, but what about those who die and come back?
5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BOOK
I read this book initially several years ago just before my mother passed away.I found it very comforting.I give it to people who are dealing with a death in the family or an illness of their own.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good for Mormons
No doubt most Christians will be entertained by this read.Eadie asserts that all people may not come to know Christ as the savior in this life but that they "must" accept his love in the next.The implications of a continued denial are not addressed (along with many other things she supposedly gained insight toward).I don't necessarily disagree with or discount Ms. Eadie's account, I simply find it to be overtly biased.Her explanation of our ability to reconnect with past lives with the usage of hypnosis is in a word, weak.She explains it as "cell memory."This I've never debated but, she goes on to assert that reincarnation does not exist, which left me wondering just what are we remembering then.She contradicts herself greatly here.

2-0 out of 5 stars Explosive plot surrenders with a whimper
I recently found these authors and have been devouring the Pendergast series with great enthusiasm. Having worked my way down the list to "Brimstone", I opened the book with great excitement. Unfortunately I closed it with great disappointment. The book started off with a bang, fizzled in the next 400 pages, and a good 1/3 of the book could have been left out entirely. Much as I want to give the book three stars, the ridiculous plot just won't let me. The plot started off interesting and spooky but when the motive for the murder was introduced, it was so mundane and silly, I put down the book and laughed out loud. After that I had to force myself to finish it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Characters EVER!!!
There are few book series that keep getting better and better, but I must say these Preston/Child books are amazing.Pendergast is now my all-time leading man.All the colorful characters in these books are well-thought out and fleshed-out nicely.They seem to pop off the pages.Smart, witty, uber-intelligent books. They also seem a bit old-fashion in the style of Sherlock Holmes, mixed with a little science-fiction and Hitchcok mystery.Cannot recommend the Pendergast Series of books beginning with Relic enough.
4-0 out of 5 stars This Book is A Lot of Fun Overall
BRIMSTONE isn't a perfect novel, but I found it to be a very enjoyable.This novel, in many ways, reminds me of the pulp adventure novels of a generation ago.You have a larger-than-life hero, along with his trusty sidekick, investigating a series of bizarre crimes.FBI Agent Pendergast is essentially a modern day version of Sherlock Holmes.Pendergast isunbelievably superhuman, but that's part of his charm -- he is a true heroic figure, which is what many readers crave for in this age of neurosis and self-doubt.

This is the best in this series so far! Nonstop action and read very, very quickly. Perfect read for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

5-0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER MASTERPIECE!!!
Oh my God!!Victoria Laurie is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!She writes the best books, I would definitely put her next to Janet Evanovich. . .YES I MEAN IT!!!She writes so incredibly well, you feel like you know the characters so well and Abby is so fun to read about - I love the psychic stuff and the humor is always right on target!!I never, ever can figure out the twists and turns and that is because Victoria keeps you guessing throughout the whole book!!!!I cannot wait for the next Abby installment and am very sad that I only have a few pages left, but I had to give kudos out to Victoria for writing such an awesome masterpiece!!
5-0 out of 5 stars A good read
It's interesting how the quality of writing with authors can change as they gain experience. Some get better while others (perhaps rushed by their editors or given too free a hand) get distinctly worse. Fortunately, Victoria Laurie falls in the first group. Each book in her Psychic Eye series has been better than the last, and this one is no exception.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's no Fingersmith
I read this book on the strength of Fingersmith, and was disappointed. It takes FOREVER to really get into - and while the end is very good and ties everything together, I'm not sure it was worth the wade required.

5-0 out of 5 stars So well done!
I don't quite know where to begin to review this novel. First, although I haven't read all the reviews so there may be a mention of it in one of them I missed, I was surprised that not more connections were drawn to Charlotte Perkins Gilman's short story - "The Yellow Wallpaper." It is one of my favorite stories and I saw so many allusions and interesting ties to that story. I also found the novel to be slightly reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace - especially in terms of questions of guilt and the seduction of one character by another - though the seduction in Alias Grace is less sexually based.
4-0 out of 5 stars Starts a bit slow but it picks up if you stick with it...
In Victorian England, a scholarly spinster with a tragic past who prefers feminine companionship becomes at the recommendation of her attending physician, a lady visitor at a women's prison.Expecting to forget her tragedy and heartbreak by doing charity work with women "more wretched than she", she comes under the spell of a spirit medium serving time for fraud and assault.Is the prisoner the real deal and an innocent woman wrongly sentenced or is she just a con-artist and seductress?Chapters alternate between the medium's diary told in flashback leading up to the events that caused her to be imprisoned and in the present of the story in the diary of the lady visitor.The twisted ending is revealed in the final 2 chapters of the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well, well... I suppose I'll contribute my voice.
For those who assert that this novel is boring, derivative, insufferable, pretentious: nonsense! We obviously read different novels. This is a page-turner. Once I began, I was through it in a day and really didn't want interruptions.
5-0 out of 5 stars brilliant
Just brilliant, I read it in his Spanish version 7 years ago; hey I was at that time a freshman student and had no knowledge of a lot of things. I just did not stop in every detail, and let me assure you, it is not necessary to comprehend the whole story. Don't bother having dictionaries and stuff, just follow the story bypassing the details.
1-0 out of 5 stars Find no secrets here
A monster book of 641 pages. Proof that Eco's editor was already dead, or the book killed him. It is filled with lots of esoteric knowledge and history.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow - Satan Burger Rocks
This book is amazing. I won't compare Carlton Mellick III to other authors, because though there are some stylistic similarities, no other author that I have read has spoken to me so succinctly. This book is terrific on so many levels. Satan Burger conveys a message that is both universal and relevant to current cultural trends and the social climate.

I must admit I bought this book because of the [...] on the cover.I thought it would be funny to leave it on my coffee table as a joke when friends were visiting.It was worth buying just for the novelty.A few weeks ago I was bored and picked up the book to read it.It wasn't what I expected.After the first chapter, I kind of got into it.It's a lot different from other books that I have read.It's got a weird sense of humor, like Mr. Show.You can tell the author was pretty young when he wrote it.Maybe because the characters are druggie rockers.Aside from the characters, the ideas in the book and the way it was written were very compelling.I finished the book in just a couple days, which is a record for me.Then I went out and bought more Carlton Mellick II books.All of them are great. Usually, I'm not much of a reader.My life is about movies.I make movies.I sell movies.This is the first author that I have read that is as good as watching movies.I have recommended Satan Burger to all my friends.Now I recommend it to you.Even if you think most books are boring.This is one book that is far from boring.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read in years
This book is just f*cking cool as hell.It's the most unique apocalyptic book I've ever read and packs in more imaginative ideas than anything I've previously read. Picture a world where 99% of the population has lost their souls and have become boring emotionless drones (wait a minute, that's already happened, hasn't it?) and the souls are being used to fuel a doorway to other dimensions.Mobs of alien cultures move in and take over.The streets become overpopulated with foreign creatures.Some of the best parts of the story are the ones that explore the different cultures.There's a race of midgets that dress up like American presidents.There's a race of women with blue skin that need sex in order to survive.There's drunken medieval knights that sword fight in alleys.There's lizard people that violently rape and kill (or kill and rape) everyone they come across.There's a creature made of sound with an Irish pub in its belly.Plus many more.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read!!!
You Slay Me is reminiscent of the Undead and Unwed series, where an attractive female is inadvertently thrust into the realm of the supernatural.Aisling Grey thinks she is just one a trip to Paris to deliver an antique - a magical dragon - in her courier job. However, upon arrival the recipient of the artifact has been murdered in an occultism fashion, and mysterious man by the name of Drake steals her dragon. To make matters worse, the police arrive and suspect Aisling of the crime.It does not help her case that the people she begins to know in Paris also being to turn up dead.Aisling must learn who she is, and begin to understand her powers if she is gong to solve this mystery.With the help -and sometimes the seduction of - Drake and a Demon Dog that she summoned from hell with a great sense of humor, Asling goes about this hilarious tale. There is plenty of laugh out loud moments, and a few "groaners", but that is what makes this book such a fun and easy read.I defiantly recommend for the fan of the light read comedy, or quirky supernatural female protagonists.
4-0 out of 5 stars Gets HOT HOT HOT!
Slow start but get's hot, hot, hot, quick, quick, quick. Aislin (pronounced Ash-ling) Gray is a bit of a screw up with a lot of luck on her side. She finds out she is a Guardian, I'm still not quite sure what that is, something about guarding entrances to hell, but liked the book enough to forge on to the next title: Fire Me Up!

5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious supernatural novel with quirky characters
Aisling Grey is working as a courier for her uncle. Her job is to bring a dragon statue to a client in Paris. However, she finds the client murdered - and a mysterious, highly attractive man lurks in the very same apartment. Slowly Aisling discovers a whole new world - a magical society to which she belongs.

5-0 out of 5 stars King does characters best, and Green Mile is proof
I wouldn't trade in a single character, from Mr. Jingles to Coffee. Five thumbs up if I had them. I read the hard cover novel, unable to believe this was written as installments -- and King claims he didn't know the ending himself. Stream of consciousness story-telling? Fantastic. What drives this, as all King novels, is character, not suspense. King knows people. He drills deep and gooey into the dark matter of the human brain, mess and all. But I don't think of King as a "horror" novelist. He merely observes, and creates elaborate and visual metaphors for what he finds. The Green Mile does it with less mess and horror than his other novels. Bravo, Mr. King.

2-0 out of 5 stars Never Have the Last Pages So Ruined a Book
Well, I read through about 60 five and four star reviews before I gave up on trying to find somebody who was willing to tackle the problematic ending of this novel. Let me start off by saying that I was loving this book all the way through Part 5. The cliffhangers were great, I loved the authentic Southern voice King breathed into each of the characters. He had crafted something so good. And then he didn't treat it with the care it deserved. Part 6 was weak, seeming inconsistent with the characters and the tone of the book.
4-0 out of 5 stars King Writes the Mile with Style
I first read this book as the chapbook series back in the mid 1990's and found it a pleasure and very easy to read these small books mainly because of their size (about 80 pages or so each) but very hard to put down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Continues the strong series
The Trouble with Witches is the third book in the Ophelia and Abby series.Like its predecessors, it is a great paranormal mystery.Abby and Ophelia are very realistic and likable because their magic doesn't make them perfect or all knowing. They make errors in judgment and mistakes.Rick from Witch Way to Murder calls Ophelia to see if she and Abby would be willing to help him try to locate a missing teen who is a friend of his family. Since she feels that she has just let Henry Comancho down, it doesn't take long for Ophelia to pack up with Abby and head north to Minnesota.Why does Rich think they can help?Well, the young woman was last seen in the company ofa paranormal and psychic research group that might be a little cultish.Since neither the group members nor the locals are interested in talking with a reporter, Rick thinks Abby and company might have better luck since they are witches and definitely not reporters.Almost immediately, they draw the notice of the research group members. At the same time, Ophelia starts experiencing odd things, meets a curious Native American, and continues her disturbing habit of tripping over bodies.Another great book in the series!

5-0 out of 5 stars Stories of witches
3rd in the Ophelia & Abby series, librarian Ophelia has opened up to learning about her psychic abilities from her grandmother, Abby.When they get a request from a friend to help find a missing girl who is reputed to have moved to a cult-like community who investigate psychic abilities, the grandmother/granddaughter team decide to go to the area in Minnesota on vacation to see what they can find out.Ophelia immediately happens upon Tink, the niece of the Finches, the psychic investigators, and feels an immediate connection with her.Tink has made friends with a local Native American shaman, despite his open bitterness against whites.After a strange encounter with a spooky shack in the woods, Ophelia finds another body - this time of a local war veteran of dubious sanity.When Tink confesses to the murder to protect her friend, Ophelia decides that she must find the basis of the paranormal mysteries in the area to clear Tink's reputation and find the missing girl, whose absence seems to take second place to the other mysteries in the small town.Great series!!Love the work, story, and paranormal aspects.Can't wait for the next one, WITCH HUNT, in April.

2-0 out of 5 stars oh,,come on....
This book was stupid,short and senseless.This was the worst book I have ever read...It was difficult to keep reading this book.I would recommmend that you not read this book.To make this book better it could have been longer.This whole book is like an introduction to some vampire book....after reading the whole book I fine myself asking the question,when is the story going to start?
5-0 out of 5 stars Anne Rice Delivers
Not a fan of Anne Rice's vampires I found that by incorporating David and Louis with the Mayfair Witch (Merrick) gave a unique blend. I highly enjoyed reading this book and from the reviews, so did others.
