The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

Finally the tree is part of the story. I wondered what the title was all about. Oh yeh I'm going to gripe some more, more than half the book was all just babbling on about everyday life zzzzz....zzzzzzzz Something has now happened, it got going things getting uncovered, stories being revealed. FINALLY ! That for 65% could have been cut by 50% and I've would have gotten it just fine
Still meh for me. Doesn't loo like it's crime drama either. WTH is this book ? All the MC is doing is telling about his life, his feelings or lack of them. I am tired of hearing the life story ramblings of this selfish twerp. Gods when will something happen ? Uggg I get enough of this when I go out in public everyone wants to share their life dramas with me. I think I wear a "tell me all about it" sign on my back
This book ! I love the narrator, he has a sexy Irish Brogue, but this story is not what I expected. Okay what I hoped it would be based on the title. I thought it would be para-something. It's not (Sad face) it's crime drama maybe ? I don't know, he's beaten, gets damaged some mentally and physically, and I'm just along for the ride while he recovers ? So far that's it, I'm bored. I saw a review that says it picks up, I hope so. If it wasn't for this narrator dream voice I'd be hitting the delete button.
I'm 13% done with Middlegame: Slow Slow start, and confusing. I found myself re-reading several paragraphs while scratching my head in confusion. I ended up just accepted that I don't need to get it and moving on. I feel stupid here. Finally it has moved beyond the first 10%'s confusion and we are developing characters - This part, the part where there are secrets friends is so cool
This spin off from The Others places us in a recovering town. One the Elders are watching, and judging to see if there is any reason to cleanse their lands. This is dark side, after the great tearing, ripping and cleansing. There is distrust, dislike and hate, around every edge in this world, building a new community will be harder. They learned.
I think I have a thing for cranky werewolves. I loved Simon in The Others and now Virgil, both cranky, possessive, protective alpha males. While they have that in common they are very different wolves. Virgil is the head of the law in this new town and Jane is his unwanted human deputy. The rest of the town is made up of various Other's and surrounded by Elders. When a request to take in more humans comes, not all the humans are good ones.
If you enjoyed the first series you will love this one.
This was so much better than book 1. I enjoyed the characters, they were off beat, needy and greedy smart and vulnerable without being TSLT. I believed, I could see these events happening, I may not have liked the characters mostly but I believed their stories. It starts off right when book 1 ends, but the story moves to a different location, Los Angeles. Rich and fabulous meet up and coming, rules are different here, depending on who you know and your bank account. This was an E ticket ride up and down with steep curves at every turn. Oh that ending, let's say I wanted more finality.
