    "While a lot of people seem to have enjoyed this book, I just couldn't get into it. It's story line is fine-exactly what you'd expect from this type of novel. It just seemed too slow-paced for my liking. I didn't find any of the characters to be very likable, so I had a hard time connecting with the events in the story. This is obviously subjective, so give the book a try to see for yourself."

    "Dragon Bound is one of the absolute worst books I have ever picked up. I love to read adult romance novels especially those with a paranormal edge. However, Dragon Bound was so far into a fantastical world that all realism was lost. I really can't recommend this book."

    "I think of other things in terms of sandwiches, because, well, I like sandwiches. If I had to associate Taunting Destiny (another addition in the Fae Chronicles series) with a sandwich, I would think of the biggest, juiciest club sandwich you ever did see. The underlying quest for the source of the cause of the deaths of the Fae give the book a meaty base, the relationship between Syn and Ryder adds the texture of freshly plucked garden goodness, and Gina Tobin's writing adds just the right amount of salt and pepper. Yum! I'm going to give it 5 stars in the hopes you will want to eat up the entirety of The Fae Chronicles series. Bon appetit!"

    "Wow I won't give away any details as to the ending of the story but all I have to say is I did not see that coming. Karen Marie Moning's Darkfever is a spellbinding, riveting story about MacKayla Lane and her seemingly dull boring life until the murder of her sister. I was totally immersed in the plot as it brings you from highs to lows and presents many surprises along the way. Please stop what you are doing and buy this book right away, you won't be disappointed. "

    "I thought that this novel held a lot of promise, but unfortunately it fell far short of my expectations. I found that the characters were not at all relatable or even likable for that matter, and the plot was disappointingly thin and poorly thought out. In more capable hands, this book could have been really interesting, so it really was a shame that the quality of the writing was as sub-par as it was. I just couldn't bring myself to finish the book, which is a rare occurrence for me."

    "Vampires, werewolves, and damsels in distress, this book is near pornographic in it's romantic nature and is definitely not for children. The main characters all have incredibly perfected, sculpted bodies and are after earth women to woe and dominate. The story is silly and nonsensical and the writing is haphazard and lazy, if you want to let your mind run on auto, then this book is for you."

While the tales of ex-cop Butch O'Neal's involvement in the vampire brotherhood were once fresh and exciting, there are now few places for the character to go. The next book will really need to come from an original place to hook me back into the series. "

    "This book is aimed at children and young adults. It's decent but the writing and depth of the story will most likely be more engaging with a younger audience. Adults may enjoy it but will not feel challenged and won't have the luxury of spotting and connecting the dots when it comes to foreshadowing."

The lion pride dynamic of the lion shifter pack added a different flavor to the romance and the sex in this book, and being set in Vegas added all sorts of high- and low-life fun on the glittering streets of the city. It wasn't the most exciting book in the series so far, but it was a really fun, sexy read."
