Kurzbeschreibung

Caitlin Schwarzbach has left home. For good.

Separated from her beloved brother Gus at age seven, Caitlin exchanges small-town Texas for Cologne, Germany to be with him. But upon her arrival, a man resembling her brother attempts to kidnap her.

At a university reception, Caitlin feels intimidated by one of her brother's former colleagues, only to have the conversation interrupted by a dangerously attractive man, Hagen von der Lahn. She learns her seismologist brother Gus has included her in a research project with the amateur archeologist and stylish aristocrat. When Gus is called away to his institute by an earthquake, the deranged Gus doppelgänger again tries to drag her away. Hagen rescues Caitlin and secures her in his castle near the Rhine.

Gus vanishes, sought by the Cologne police for multiple sexual assaults. As Hagen and Caitlin begin the investigation into her brother's disappearance, her feelings for Hagen grow. But before she can follow up on a promising lead, a blow to the head lands Caitlin in the hospital. An unwanted visitor appears by her bed; someone she feared since childhood, the being she thinks of as Death. His appearance can only mean one thing: her brother is in mortal danger.

A novel of supernatural suspense, Primary Fault is a delightful mixture of science meets magic set amidst a backdrop of Celto-Germanic Otherworld.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well crafted and enjoyable 4. Juni 2013
Von kc
Format:Kindle Edition
A great start to a series of books. Somehow my last review is missing so I will just say I really liked this book a lot and then loved the second one. It is worth the read if you enjoy contemporary fantasy! Reminded me of Deborah Harkness. Smart, witty, great world building and an interesting premise. Unique and very worthwhile. Take a chance, buy this book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Slick Fantasy Debut 18. Mai 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
Primary Fault is the first novel in a new fantasy series by Sharon Kae Reamer. Set in Cologne and nearby Bensberg, the novel is a fast-paced, dialogue-driven occult thriller with an unlikely romantic heroine at its heart. Caitlin Schwarzbach is a salty-tongued Texan and a card-carrying jeans and T-shirt girl. Following the death of Caitlin's mother, a shattering car accident and a failed relationship, Caitlin decides to leave her old life behind. She sets her sights on Germany where she has family roots, not least of all her older brother, Gus, who runs a influential seismology institute outside of Cologne.

The author presents a world in which earth science and earthy mysticism jostle shoulder to shoulder in competing visions of reality. The novel begins with Caitlin's arrival at Cologne-Bonn airport and the trouble begins almost immediately. The earth moves, reality shifts and Caitlin is accosted by someone who looks unnervingly like her brother. Before she has a chance to recover, her brother goes missing, and is accused first of assault and then murder -- all in rapid succession. The future siting of a planned technology park hangs in the balance of Gus' unpublished seismology report, which powerful agents would prefer to suppress or at least discredit. Caitlin must act quickly to solve the mystery of her brother's disappearance and salvage the reputation of the research institute that is his life's work.

The absence of Caitlin's beloved brother leaves her disoriented and susceptible to the charms of Gus' friend and associate, Hagen von der Lahn. Hagen may as well come from an alien world as far as Caitlin in concerned. He's an enigmatically handsome, old-world aristocrat and holder of the family estate at Burg Lahn.

Von Christoph
Format:Taschenbuch
Primary Fault ist spannend geschrieben und insbesondere für Naturwissenschaftler und Kölner ein Vergnügen. Überraschende Wendungen lassen keine Langeweile aufkommen und werfen die eigenen Theorien, die man beim Lesen so entwickelt, erfreulich gründlich und wiederholt über den Haufen. Den Geowissenschaftler erfreuen die fröhlichen Seitenhiebe Reamers auf das eigenen Fachgebiet (die Seismologie oder Erdbebenkunde - der eingeweihte Leser wird einige eventuell sogar Ähnlichkeiten einzelner Charaktere mit ihm bekannten Personen ausmachen können), der Ortskundige mag die sorgfältig ausgewählten Schauplätze. Aber auch alle anderen Fans von Spannung, Fantasy und Erdbeben kommen sicher auf ihre Kosten. Schwer zu sagen, ob man den Roman nun als Fantasykrimi oder Science Fiction mit besonderer Science-Betonung bezeichnen sollte, am besten selber lesen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun stuff! 30. Januar 2013
Von Kate Kulig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I found a lot of things to like about [book:Primary Fault|15744910]: The protagonist is over thirty, she has a career in the sciences and she can be decisive and vulnerable at the same time. No weeping ingenue is Caitlin, she has a brain and she's not afraid to use it.

The setting--Germany near Cologne--is also a refreshing change, and while the reader and Caitlin get introduced to the surrounding area, we also get peeks at other worlds, one Caitlin may have played in unknowingly as a child.

There are a few mysteries to be resolved in the next book, which I'm looking forward to. I finished the book knowing certain things were important, but wouldn't be revealed just yet. It's easy to overdo that kind of tension, but Reamer did not.

I'm not sure how I feel about Caitlin's potential love interest, Hagen. He's definitely keeping secrets, and he seems to have his own agenda. This agenda is being thwarted and I wonder if he'll come out of it likable or the true SOB he has the potential to be.

I did find some of the writing a bit uneven--overly descriptive in some places, and not at all in others. I suspect the unknown will be made clear in the next volume.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quirky detective novel 18. August 2012
Von maya - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The novel follows the adventures of Caitlin Schwarzbach, who has moved to Germany to be with her brother Gus. He has just introduced her to his research on earthquakes and ancient civilizations when he suddenly disappears. Meanwhile a guy who likes like Gus is attacking women around the university. Caitlin finds herself in the middle of a police case against her brother, even though she thinks he is innocent.

Along the way Caitlin befriends Gus' next door neighbor and a persistent journalist. Caitlin tries to decide what to do with the handsome Hagen von der Lahn and she inadvertently makes some enemies in her search for Gus. Then a talisman of a wooden cat finds its way into her life and starts to define her in unexpected ways.

She periodically has waking dreams about an otherworld filled with magic, folklore and strange animals. Characters in this Celtic otherworld influence those in real life through a board game they play. Caitlin tries to make sense of what's real and what's not while finding her brother. Part of the magic of this novel is the characters that come alive as quirky, genuine people. I couldn't help falling "in like" with Caitlin's character and can't wait to see what she does next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A light, pleasurable read with smart characters 26. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a very enjoyable, light read. I thought the author did a great job of weaving science, mystery, lore, and various cultures into one tale. It’s a very smart book and I enjoyed the archeoseismology angle, particularly since I live in an area famous for earthquakes and I’m familiar with the damage and uncertainty of living near faults.

I enjoyed the characters. I'm dreadfully tired of vampire-werewolf-magic-romances with bombshell beauties and/or women with elfin like features and irresistible ethereal beauty who are so far removed from the norm that they are entirely unbelievable. I enjoyed the character, Caitlin, and the fact that she's a smart independent woman who's complicated because of her relationships; she has been altered by how people have treated her. She’s insecure as well as confident in all the ways that women can maintain both states, which makes her 3 dimensional. I enjoyed how the story unfolded from her perspective because she's not omnipotent and must discover the her world through her own interaction and therefore we discover the world as she does; we are not given all the answers and then await the heroine to figure it out and to catch up with us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen When Worlds Collide 23. August 2013
Von Kathryn Franklin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
After a horrible car accident, Caitlin was separated from her brother Gus for years. Only until she moves from Texas to Cologne, Germany is she able to reunite with him and begin life anew. But something isn't quite right and soon Caitlin realizes that her reality has been turned upside down. She always thought that the childhood game she and her mother played, Journeys to the Otherworld, was just that - a game. But now her mom is dead and Caitlin feels lost. When Gus disappears and he is accused of attacks on women and even murder, Caitlin must turn to new friends and Hagan von der Lahn, a new romantic interest, to help clear her brother's name.

Unlike most books today, where key plot points of the story are revealed right on the jacket cover, author Sharon Kae Reamer takes her time in Primary Fault: The Schattenreich. What is actually going on is as much a mystery to readers as it is to main characters and that is quite refreshing. Reamer definitely has a way with words. When describing Hagan's eyes, she writes, "The dim light from the candles made his eyes seem dark, like the marriage of midnight to ocean." Readers can just visualize the color of his eyes and fall into their depths.

After studying geophysics in college in Texas, Reamer moved to Germany and began a career as a seismologist. Part of the series' mystery involves Gus' study of earthquakes and their impact on history and ancient ruins. As of the first book, it is still unclear to the main characters (and readers) exactly why Gus' archaeoseismology project and research has placed his family and friends in so much danger. Who is the evil blonde, where is Gus and who is the man that looks exactly like him who is running loose around Germany? Are Caitlin's dizzy spells related to her previous accident or is she tied directly to a long line of Druid mythology?

The book draws to an exciting conclusion on the eve of Halloween as masked guests mingle and the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. Readers don't need to be worried about the unfinished story because Shaky Ground, the second book in the series, is now available. You'll want to get it as soon as possible to find out more about the thrilling collision of worlds that Reamer has artistically created.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Beginning 7. August 2013
Von pat1360 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
From the first chapter, we are thrown into a world where reality is hard to determine. Caitlin's adventures in the oh-so-atmospheric Cologne area have a nightmarish quality to them as she tries to clear her brother Gus of criminal charges. As the story is told in the first person, Caitlin's confusion becomes our own, and the occasional asides in the Otherworld only add to the mysteries. Ms. Reamer has crafted a book full of fascinating characters, marvelous locales and a gripping plot. I'm happy to see there is at least one sequel. Although Primary Fault could be a stand alone novel, there are enough loose ends that I wish to read more.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
