    5-0 out of 5 stars How on earth does DG continue to write such a great saga?!
    ABOSAA is a very richly woven saga that was an enjoyable read from page 1 all the way through page 979. I continue to be in awe of DG's ability to write so much detail and to portray characters that are so believable. The Outlander series isone that I can immerse myself in and actually feel as if I am walking in Claire's shoes. Description is so authentic that you can almost "smell" what she is describing. Just when you believe a scene is too intense or disturbing, DG breaks up that emotion shortly after with something so witty that you laugh out loud! There are very few authors that can do that.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
    Oh my God!!!I had trouble putting it down!!!When does the next book come out??I want to know if Brianna and Roger come back??Or do Jamie and Claire go back to the future???

    4-0 out of 5 stars yet another guilty pleasure from Gabaldon
    Although its quite an undertaking at nearly 1000 pages, "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" is a must-read for Jamie & Claire fans. They're back and in perfect form...with all the requisite tender love, devotion and sacrifice of previous Gabaldon tomes. In Jamie and Claire Fraser, the author has created two of the most clearly defined and memorable characters in current fiction. Gabaldon really shines in her ability to convey emotion so vividly that the reader can't help but become deeply invested in the series, despite its faults. Like all the Outlander books, the dialogue here fairly crackles off the page with wit, humor and visceral feeling. The author's trademark overstuffed cast of characters and extensively detailed descriptions of the minuteia of life (great for history buffs) is also present, but seems much more compelling in this novel in comparison to recent books. I must agree with other reviewers that the characters of Brianna and Roger have become decidedly lifelike and interesting in this novel, which was a pleasant surprise. One major problem is the author's rush to resolve storylines in the final chapters of the book. The ending seems to indicate that Gabaldon intends on continuing the series, so why give short shrift to such major plot points? Additionally, one question I'd have for the author is: Did women really get abducted so often back in the 1700's? Nary an Outlander book passes without Claire and/or Brianna getting abducted several times, just so that Jamie and/or Roger can ride heroically to their rescue. I believe these issues, along with the clear lack of editorial guidance during the making of this book, are simply symptoms of the author's ego, popularity and the hungry devotion of her fans to hearing anything at all about these characters. (And I am among those fans.) If you are picking this book up as a new reader, do yourself a favor and at least read "Outlander" first. Otherwise, your suspension of disbelief may not make it too far in this story. That being said, I consider "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" to be another enjoyable, yet guilty pleasure from Gabaldon because I simply cannot stop myself: I MUST know what happens next. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Sub-par
    I agree with another reviewer, who says that this book just isn't Through a Glass Darkly. There were many great things about this book, but there were some major things that really frustrated me.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel..Almost as Good As The First.....
    I read Now Face to Face years ago when it was first releashed and I have two say that I have yet too read such a great 2nd book in a series!! I loved the first book Through A Glass Darkly and still have a copy of it in my favorites book shelf!!! I wish there were a third book to this series!!This book is a great historical fiction novel.It is not just fluff, it is a true historical fiction novel!! Read it, you will love it too, but make sure you read the first book Through A Glass Darkly first.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful historical saga continues...
    To me, Through a Glass Darkly is one of the most remarkable historical sagas ever written. I loved the novel so much and I kind of agreed with the comparisons to Gone with the Wind, except that Through a Glass Darkly has its own unique voice in historical fiction. I had looked forward to reading Now Face to Face and I couldn't believe that I had finally got my hands on a copy. This novel was not easy to obtain, but I'm glad I went the extra mile to get it. Barbara Devane has a legacy of debts left by her late husband, Roger Montgeoffry, which she decides to leave behind for the time being as she oversees her grandmother's tobacco plantation in Virginia. There she meets various people, namely one Col. Perry, who becomes her protector. Stronger and more determined, she returns to London to tighten the loose ends she's left behind. However, she will have to deal with various issues, such as her mother's pregnancy, her best friend Jane's involvement with the Jacobite uprising, and the biggest loose end of all, having to meet again with her cousin, the Duke of Tamworth, and his undying love for her. There are various twists throughout the novel.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Compelling story for a non-historical fiction reader
    I do not typically enjoy historical fiction especially if the book focuses too much on the historical facts than on creating a story.However, this book changed my thinking.The story was extremely compelling in its description of life in the Royal Court as well as family ambitions and gender roles during that period.I forgot that I was actually learning about history because I became so involved in the story.Also, the book included many surprises which I did not imagine.Just an incredible read overall.

    4-0 out of 5 stars good fictional read but not history
    This was the first novel by Ms Gregory that I've read and I did enjoy it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of Philippa Gregory!
    By far the best book of all 20 of her books!Riveting in every way...The characters are very well developed and played out.I felt like it was fairly historically accurate, however I don't believe both of her children were Henry's and I don't think there was even much dispute about that. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!
    This is a great book. Adair is a great strong female character. She was stubborn at time but came around to realize where & who she belonged with. Bertrice also gives her view on what happened to the 2 princes and who killed them during England's War of the Roses.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ten Stars IfPossible
    I loved this book.I am an avid fan of Beatrice Small's work.I have read all her books with the exception of the contemporaries.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Bertrice Small at her finest !
    A Dangerous Love is Bertrice Small is finest form ! It is reminescent of Rosamund and Until you. The rich history and wonderful storyline will leave you longing for the next in this series. Adair Radcliffe is a strong heroine, who survives more than anyone else could bear and comes out on the top. I look forward to the next book in the Border Chronicals. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expect from the author
    I was so excited to receive this book. I loved the author's previous books, especially the O'Malley series. Unfortunately, this book was just plain bad. The story was poorly written, the dialog was choppy, the characters lacked the depth and emotional buy-in of her previous work.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete Storyline
    This book is not up to pare to other Dee Henderson books.I was so disappointed that I actually wasted my time reading it - of course, you don't realize it until the end.I had to keep reading the ending over and over to see if I missed something, unfortunately I didn't.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    While the other three reviewers have given this book glowing reviews, I'm afraid that I have to disagree.Things jumped aroung too much and didn't tie together very well.She also ended the book so abruptly that I thought pages might have been left out of my book.There is nothing at the end to let the reader know whether or not the book will be continued.To me, this does not stack up to the O'Malley series or the Uncommon Heros series by any stretch of the imagination.Buyer beware! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding sequel
    I love the way Shana Abe uses her imagination and how well she captures it on paper. She takes romance and fantasy and seamlessly blends the two. This book stands alone on it's own, but as a sequel it's fantastic.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Sequel to SMOKE THIEF
    Zane, the young thief, from SMOKE THIEF has grown into a formidable man. He is the head of a very unique and prosperous gang of thieves. The draken of Darkfirth have used his abilities and underlings many times. Zane is the only human to know the truth about the draken, he is the only human they trust. Now is the time to recover the lost Draumr, a diamond that can control the draken. None of the draken are able to stand it's presence and none have been able to find it. It is more of a legend than a truth. But now it's song is heard by most of the draken and someone must be sent to find the diamond. Zane is promised 60,000 gold pieces to retrieve the diamond and return it to the draken. Unfortunately, he will find something he desires more than money. And Draumr may be the only way to gain it. Zane is not told of the powers of the diamond, nor is he told of the danger it holds for the draken.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A superb late eighteenth century romantic fantasy
    In Darkfirth, England Lady Amalia "Lia" Langford can "hear" the future in her dreams.In 1768 she began dreaming of the human Zane bringing the dreaded Draumr gem to her clan.Draumr is the only known item that can enslave Lia's people who are the shapeshifting Drakon, who live in the most remote mountainside of Northern England.

    I used to be a huge fan of Stephanie Laurens(I've read everyone of her books....), & she used to be 1 of my most favorite authors, but I'm sorry to say that she's not any more....(In the very recent yrs., I've simply been reading all of hers just bcs. I've gotten into the habit of it, not bcs. they R as sensual & intriguing as they used to anymore....)
    3-0 out of 5 stars It dragged! Her books are usually so good! Not Here ...so slow for story to build!!
    LOVE Stephanie Lauren books; I have read them ALL!!! But this one is so, so slow; it takes forever for the story to build. Pages and pages saying the same thing and so predictable. Makes you wonder if an author gets paid by the page. If you like reading about one kiss for 3 pages, this is your book.If you want that kiss mixed with a solid story, perhaps this is not the book for you. Still a good story though you can easily skip pages and not miss a thing. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Mark of the Lion
    This series is by far the best I have ever read. Every time I re-read them they bring me to tears- they are that good. The first two in the series are the best but they are all wonderful. Read them, you won't be disappointed!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Christian Fiction Yet!
    This series, particularly the first book, has been life-changing and is the best written Christian fiction I've ever read! It is terrific historical fiction, and while I think women are Francine Rivers' main audience, even my husband read this series and recommends it to his male friends. The reading is not difficult, but it's a powerful story! Be warned - there is a description of the seige of Jerusalem at the beginning where a few of my friends have stopped reading, but do read on! The story continues to build, until the end where I was telling myself "O my gosh!!" over and over for hours when I finished. (Don't read the end ahead of time!) I also strongly suggest that you avoid reading the introduction for the second book that is in some later versions of the first novel! Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good enough to steal
    I teach at a jail; I purchase many books for my students there.If a book is particularly good, someone steals it.The better it is, the faster it gets stolen.This whole set went missing as soon asword got out that it had to do with early Christianity, The Coliseum, soldiers, man-eating lions, etc.Truly it is a great series, and I hope it is still circulating in one of the jail pods.I like the lessons the books teach, plus they're exciting to read.(All of Francine Rivers' Christian-based books are well-done.) ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent characters, but little plot substance
    The end to Kleypas' Wallflower series is an average presentation. Abiding by the normal formula of historical regencies, we see a great and fun buildup of Daisy and Matthew's courtship and romance, which keeps the story moving along. However, once Daisy and Matthew acquiesce to their mutual desire, the story plods more slowly. When Matthew's past is revealed, the reader is left wondering "Is this all?" The denouement comes so quickly and all issues are resolved in an epilogue, that the reader feels somewhat cheated in not being engaged in the external plot.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved It!!!
    I enjoyed all the Wallflowers books, but this was by far the best. I laughed and cried during this story, and couldn't put it down.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good book, not the best in the series but not the worst.
    I wished the series would have ended in a bang, especially after the last two great novels in the series Devil in Winter and it Happened in Autumn.It was better than Secrets of a Summer Night and worse than the other two.And the Scandal could have been dealt with better.I was annoyed that he was keeping something that important from Daisy and when I actually found out about the scandal I thought, that's it.That's what he was afraid of for 10 years.Stupid, especially since he built such a name for himself since then he could have gotten it taken care of years before.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Enough
    Teresa Medeiros is a wonderful writer, so even at her "not so great" she writes a good story.This tale wasn't as entertaining as After Midnight, but it was nice to see the characters of her first book play a role in this sequel.Julian's character was still rakish and desirable, and Portia was still sweet and driven.The love affair was semi-believable, but it lacked a depth that Ms. Medeiros often puts into her romances.The Vampire Who Loved Me is a light and easy read and enjoyable enough to pass a few hours with.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Dull!
    A predictable story. A good book to read if you have no other vampire novels at hand.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Disapointing follow-up to After Midnight
    The Vampire that Loved Me is the sequel to After Midnight.It covers the story of Julian and Portia and takes place about 5 years after the events in After Midnight.Considering that it was 13 months between the release of AM and VLM, I guess I was expecting something a little more.While it is written well, the plot and characters just are not that engaging.Normally, I say more about the plot and characters in reviews (esp. a bit more than what the back cover says), but this book is so shallow that I think if I do, it will be nothing more than an spoiler for those that might read it.It is riddled with high and low points, mostly low.Medeiros seems to be attempting a gothic romance.If I were to sum this book up in one word, it would be "sappy" or maybe "cheesy".Where the first one was likable, there isn't much to redeem this one other than to say it doesn't take long to read.It's definitely a popcorn book.I kept the first one and now have to decide if I keep this one because I kept the first. ...

    I just finished Dragonfly in Amber last night. I have to admit, the length of the book (947 pages) made me somewhat apprehensive to reading it, but I told myself "You know, Courtney, you WANT to know what happens, and the rest of the series is a hell of a lot longer than this one!"

    So I liked but didn't love 'Outlander'. Perhaps it was slight snobbery on my part for thinking it was a well written historical bodice ripper. That said, I started this with some reservations, many of them in regards to the length at nearly a thousand pages.

    Editorial Review

    Set in pre-Revolutionary War America, readers finally have the much awaited fourth book in what will probably become a six book series (The Outlander series). The talented Diana Gabaldon continues Claire and Jamie's romantic love affair, and introduces Brianna and Roger's story. Eight hundred pages, and several wonderful new characters later, we wonder why we were waiting for a conclusion. It'll be a long wait for book five, so I recommend you go back and reread Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Slow Start but good book
    This book started very slow and did a lot of rambling with Brianna and Roger's relationship. Roger was a pretty uptight and too tightly strung most of the time but likeable. I found Brianna to be very immature and self centered.Rather dumb too in some respects concerning almost inviting herself to be raped.What did she think Bonnet was talking about in the tavern when it was apparent that he thought she was a prostitute?For a supposedly knowledgeable woman of the late 1960's she still goes on board his ship knowing how women were treated in the 1700's after months of research on that era.Pretty farfetched.Then she is entirely too keen on slapping, punching and generally thinking it is okay to tear into Roger, Ian or anyone else that crosses her including threatening blackmail to get her way with John Grey.This book does not put her in a very good light.She becomes more likeable and matures into an interesting woman in later books, thankfully, as she is an important character from this book forward.

    We love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.We have the 1st four on CD now.
    3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Read
    This book is the 4th installment in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.The stars of the series are Jamie and Claire Fraser, whose long, passionate love has transcended time and keeps readers coming back for more.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best in the series
    I'm in disagreement with most of the other reviewers here- I thought this first novel in the series was the strongest. To me it had the most 'reality'. I know that sounds weird in terms of an historical romance, but Anabelle had sincere struggles to overcome her societal prejudices and a great wedding night didn't completely erase her feelings about coming down in the world. She also realized that she had a lot to learn about the world outside and where her society and the world as a whole was going. Simon took a good couple of years to come to terms with her as a person not just as a hot bod he wanted in his bed, he eventually comes to see her as a person with faults and admirable qualities who he likes for herself. I thought the ending drama was superb as something momentous was necessary to prove to them both that they had more than money at the heart of their relationship. I enjoyed all the books in the series, but thought this one was the most interesting and had the most compelling characters (though Lilian's story was very good as well).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Simply Simon
    What a awesome hero. Handsome, charming and a hero with no title - yes thats a nice change. I have read the other reviews and people tended to find this book (lukewarm). I liked this book, Annabelle did not seem shallow to me in the least, but I found her courage to not be made a fallen woman a plus to her character and her intrest in Simon never falters throughout the whole story. When her mother told her to think of money, bank accounts on her wedding night and then finds she's not able to was cute.There discovery together of where they fit and there learing to get along with each other was nice. And the ending - what more proof do you need. Sorry you'll have to read it. I found this not her best but a great book all the same.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Not the best in the series, but still a delightful read - 3.5 stars
    Set in Victorian England, the Wallflower series is the story of four young ladies who join forces to help each other find suitable husbands.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Too much tangential information
    I purchased this book based on all the previous reviews.Although Katherine's journey was interesting, I found the writing to be tiresome midway through the book.There was too much extending information which distracted me from the scenes and stories set by the author.By the end, I was praying for some horrible death to befall Katherine or her precious Duke just so the novel would end and I could donate the book to my local library.This was not a 5 - star read for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars wow!!!
    This is an amazing book of love, hatred, passion, and hope what more could you ask for in a historical fiction book.with incredible detail and vived description this audacious character comes to life.Phillipa gregory writes another amazing historical novel of passiona and intrigue. although at times you wish katherine to just give up she keeps hoping and wishing for something that does not belong to her katherine is a very loveable character.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Just skip over to the good parts!!
    Since I have read this book at least thirty times or more, I feel qualified be objective about its strengths and weaknesses.First of all it is Anya Seton's finest book and she does a good job in setting up life in the more pious fourteenth century and creating rich vivid characters with interesting clothing.We really come to care about our beautiful but chaste protagonist Katherine de Roet and want her to somehow manage to snag her married Duke, the Plantangent prince John of Gaunt.However, this is a 1950s book and female lust and/or adultry is really frowned upon so the protagonist is just a little too passive for modern tastes. So gentle reader, when you get past the part where Katherine and John briefly kiss following the wedding ceremony when she is forced to marry her would-be rapist, Sir Hugh Swyford, the story really goes down hill and gets very depressing.I advise you to skip on over to the part where Lady Blanche dies of the plague and the Duke finally gets the hots for comely Katherine but not enough to marry her.Its a little grim but hang in there and keep on reading until Hugh dies or is murdered and the duke and the lady finally get together.You can skip the intermermiable battles and talk of battles if you wish.Sin and guilt take up a lot of time here and our protagonists suffer mightly (as does the reader).The story perks up again towards the end when Katherine and John's brood of charming love children are old enough to realize that being illegimate is a real hinderance to upward mobility in the fourteenth century.It reminds me of Sting and Trudy Styler's teenage children begging them to get married and legimitize them a few years ago.The end is actually pretty upbeat but it is torture to suffer with poor Katherine to finally get there.

    JD's writing is always captivating.The relationship between the main characters is enticing and the story lines are leaving you with wanting her next book in the series.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Seduction In Death
    I loved this story, as is the case with all J.D. Robb In Death books. Susan Erikson is wonderful; the different voices she uses for each character is amazing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars InsightTo Eve
    Seduction takes off as most of the "In Death" books do with the story of Eve's dreaded past.However, this book in the series delves into Eve's more "human" nature with J. D. Robb demanding her main character conform to the care of her family and friends.We see a much more vulnerable and "soft" side of Eve (whether or not she initially likes it).The murder mystery moves in different directions from her previous books as well.We know who the bad guys are almost from the start but it is always interesting to explore the mindful ways of our favorite copand watch her think her way through to solving yet another homicide.I especially enjoyed the manner in which Robb enhanced the development of the secondary character-relationships of Peabody and McNab (becoming exclusive!) and Charles and Louise.The "In Death" characters are like family after you have gotten this far in the series and you'll be hooked and loving each and every one of them, right down to Commander Whitney as you follow the life and times of Eve Dallas, Roarke, Feeney, Mavis, Peabody, McNab and company. ...
