Join New York Times best selling author Christina Dodd's mailing list to have her news delivered right to your inbox! http://christinadodd.com

In 2014, Christina is publishing the Lost Hearts series in e-book, all enhanced with extra material:
-- JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
-- ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE
-- CLOSE TO YOU
And Christina's all-new series, Virtue Falls, starts with:
-- THE LISTENER: A Virtue Falls e-Short Story (July 1)
-- VIRTUE FALLS: A Full-Length Suspense (Sept 9)

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.' With more than fifteen million of her books in print, her legions of fans always know that when they pick up a Christina Dodd book, they know they've found a story "For the wild at heart!"

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

3.0 von 5 Sternen besser als Vorgänger 17. August 2011
Von AK78
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dies ist der zweite Band der "Chosen Ones" Reihe nach Storm of Visions: The Chosen Ones und etwas besser, wenn auch nicht so gut wie andere Romane der Autorin. (z.B. die "Darkness Chosen" Reihe)
Im ersten Band wurden die Personen eingeführt, es wurden Hintergründe erläutert und es ist einiges passiert. Daher wird in diesem Band nur eine kurze Erläuterung gegeben und dann gleich mit der Geschichte begonnen. Es ist also besser den ersten Band vor diesem gelesen zu haben.
Aaron Eagle ist indianischer Herkunft und ist ein Dieb von Kunstschätzen. Diese kann er leicht stehlen, da er die Fähigkeit hat, sich in Rauch zu verwandelt. Wegen einer Prophezeihung benötigt er die Hilfe der brillianten Dr. Rosemund Hill. Diese ist auf ihrem Gebiet sehr bewandert, ist sehr hübsch, aber komplett weltfremd und nicht interessiert in ihr Aussehen. Daher ist sie sehr irritiert als zum einen Aaron an ihr Interesse zeigt und zum anderen der gutaussehende normal scheinende Lance. Um diese Prophezeihung zu finden geht es nach Casablanca, Paris und in die Französischen Alpen. Doch die Gefahr folgt ihnen.
Achtung Spoiler!!! Die Blödheit mit dem Handy tut echt weh und dass keiner Rosamund über die anderen aufgeklärt hatte, obwohl sie wussten dass da Gefahr droht. Aber dann wäre der Roman ja ohne Spannung.
Insgesamt ist der Roman spannend geschrieben, wenn auch einige logische Fakten den Lesespass etwas trüben.
Eine Steigerung zum ersten Band, aber leider noch nicht das gewohnte Niveau der Autorin.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Better than the first in the series, but you need to have read the first one 15. September 2009
Von Sandy Kay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This wasn't my favorite Christina Dodd romance but it was so much better than Storm of Visions (Chosen Ones, Book 1), it seemed marvelous in comparison. In fairness, part of the problem with the first book is the reason I strongly suggest you read the first book before you read this one: Ms. Dodd put all the background of The Chosen, The Others, how the current group of Chosen were selected and why they are hiding out, etc. into the first book. That didn't leave much space in the first book for a good romance; not repeating it all in the second book meant much more time for Rosamund and Aaron. But it does mean that if you haven't read the first book, you will miss a lot of what's going on in this one.

The other reason I liked this book better was that Aaron was a better "hero" for me than Caleb was in the first book. We learned in the first book that Aaron is a thief; now we learn about his powers so we know what made him such a successful thief. Rosamund is a more difficult heroine to love; she's not the strong and capable woman romance readers love to root for. She's socially inept, clueless about men, doesn't care about her appearance, and is burdened with both guilt over her parents' deaths and the need to protect herself against the pain of loss. If you want a perfect heroine, you aren't going to get her in this book. From looking at some of the other reviews, it appears people love her or hate her. Sometimes it is nice to have flawed characters so she was an OK heroine for me.

Although there is much more time given to the romance in this book, I wished there had been more about emotional development (growing respect/affection for each other, etc.) than just a developing physical relationship. I always want to feel the couple falling in love, not just read about the hots they have for each other. Speaking of the physical, readers who love the steamy stuff will get a very steamy limo ride scene and sex in a closet during a party.

This wasn't the perfect romance but there is a lot of adventure/paranormal fantasy added to the mix and that made it an entertaining reading for me. I'm glad I didn't quit the series after the first book and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Horrible. Just horrible 6. September 2009
Von J. Blake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I had recently read an excerpt of Storm of Shadows and liked it enough that rushed right out to buy it, plus book 1. I have read and enjoyed other Christina Dodd books, so I thought, " "WhooHoo! A new series to enjoy!" but, wow.. the only word I can now come up with is "disappointment".

I ended up skimming most of the book after the half way point. I didn't think the characters were developed (plus Rosamund was *annoying*) nor was the plot tight for being written by such a seasoned and successful author. Maybe it was just not my cup of tea, but after reading other great paranormal authors, Illona Andrews, Jeaniene Frost, Patricia Briggs, Richelle Mead and the like, this story was... well... just weak.

I wish Ms. Dodd the best with this series, but I won't be buying anymore.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty bad 28. September 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The worst romance novel I've read that's been written this decade. First I must say I never read the first book in the series and have never read Dodd before. Now, why I hated this book: The characters had no depth. I didn't care about any of them. They had no chemistry and I could never figure out why they became attracted to each other aside from Dodd telling them they were. There seemed to be no reason for anything they were doing. It might have been better off as a comic book since that's what the premise seemed to be -- group of super-powered super-heros are to save the world from evil-doers... though what evil they do other than try and burn down the good guys' cover business was not really disclosed. Dodd seemed to be modeling her librarian as more extreme version of Dr. Brennan from Bones for her librarian but instead of quirky she came up with irritatingly dense and naive. There is no limit to the stupid things this woman does. She is like every stupid character in every horror film you've ever thought "NO don't go in the basement!" to all rolled into one. The hero is just plain bland, bland, bland; the most generic alpha-male hero I've ever read in a romance novel. His character is Native American, though why she didn't just make him average suburban white boy since his background doesn't affect anything he thinks or does I couldn't say. Half of the novel is just him thinking about how he doesn't really like yet wants her, and her being oblivious to EVERYTHING while researching a prophesy so that the superheros know something (what I'm not sure, I guess that's in the second half which I don't plan on reading). Anyway, sorry for being so harsh but I feel a little gypped.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What in the World? (Possible Spoiler) 7. September 2009
Von RomanceAddict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First let me start by saying that Christina Dodd is one of my favorite authors, even before her paranormal jump. After reading this book... I can honestly say it was irritation from the very beginning. I can tell you that Rosamund appeared to literally disappear in the book for me. She did nothing that stood out, in fact for all her supposed intelligence (nothing in this book led me to believe that she was indeed in possession of a doctorate) she was quite frankly one of the stupidest women I've had the misfortune to read about. Then she discovers that she loves Aaron (which I have no idea how that could be, as she pretty much ignored him or went on a flighty binge throughout the entire book). The only time she couldn't NOT ignore him... was when they were in the limo and when they were in the closet. And get this... her belief that HE didn't love HER was because he only liked her when she was pretty (tsk... She was so engrossed in her books... she didn't notice him giving her the eye). Let me reiterate... she didn't pay much attention to poor Aaron until he was literally impossible to ignore.

Logically we can say... that dear Rosamund didn't learn from the mistakes she continuously made because none of the Chosen communicated to her whom they were (the Chosen), what they were trying to accomplish, whom she should avoid (the Others), and why she shouldn't send text messages to a man she didn't know detailing her whereabouts particularly pertaining to her new found 'work.' From this we can assume, Rosamund lived in a library all of her life... and she's had no access to newspapers nor TV. So she just doesn't know that there could be crazy people in the world intent on causing her harm, she lived in a self-contained (and apparently self-maintained) box. In fact, because of her intelligent stupidity... Aaron paid the price for most of her mistakes (which she condemned him for).

I know that most intelligent minds have trouble breaking into the common sense arena... but this was just too much. I think before I purchase the next of the series I'll wait until I read the reviews from others... and if there are none... I'll wait until it hits the library.

Quite a distressing book...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Escape 2. Oktober 2009
Von NativeTexan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Storm of Shadows is a great escape story. I have known people such a Rosamund--totally brilliant and absolutely clueless. It's fun to watch her enter the real world for the first time in her life. Aaron is the perfect opposite for her.

The research Christina Dodd does in preparation for the story adds to the story line. She demonstrates a fabulous imagination in the development of the characters and the plot. I always appreciate Christina Dodd's creativity. It must be difficult to get into the head of a character that is totally different from your own personality (when you read the book you'll understand what I mean). I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to the next installment.

Read the Storm of Visions first so you know the background.
