1.0 von 5 Sternen Impossible to read, 28. Juni 2015
This novelette has 33 pages. I made it to page 6 and had to stop. I just couldn't continue the way this is written.
There is no flow in the text. It's like the author wrote a sentence stopped and started anew.
"Mhari did something. Mhari did something else. Mhari did a third thing." and so on and so on. No there is no change to "Mhari did something which led to something else. And at the end she went on to a third thing."
And this is not limited to the main character. The same starting a sentence with the characters name all over.
The plot might have some potential but I did not even make it through the introduction of the main character. Therefore I don't think more than 1 star is even warranted.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved the book, 16. November 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
At the beginning I didn't like this book to much.
It reminded me too much of "The infernal Devices" series. Same intro, same basic characters, same "damsel in distress that changes to be the hero".

Boy was I wrong.

In this book we have a heroine who is basicly a pacifist pursued by deadly enemies who want to harm her and her friends. On the other hand there are her fierce friends who just want to put her somewhere save.

Not only does she resist safekeeping but she is fierce on rescuing everyone around her who gets attacked. All the while trying to be true to here principles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A new twist on the wherewolf genre, 12. Oktober 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This book is a mixture of medieval fantasy and werewolf stories and just the start of a series.

The author is still able to introduce us to one race after the other without overwhelming us like other fantasy writers do.

The way stories within the story tell us about the background of the world and the people in the world is something I haven't seen in to many books. I think that this has been done really well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nice story, 12. Oktober 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I did actually enjoy the story and wanted to continue reading.
The story might not have had to many new twists. But it still is told well, the descriptions were good and I got a feeling about the surroundings.

That I did not cry when someone gets shot? Well not necessarily a must.

I did also like that the book wasn't riddled with grammar errors like some of the other books I read in the past. Somehow it disturbs my immersion if I have to go back multiple times until I understand what the sentence should have looked like.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A futuristic astronauts story, 24. August 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I did not read the prequel to this book so I started without knowing who is who.
It did not matter as each person is introduced one after the other with all the quirks that are relevant to the main character. So I think this is a good book to enter into the story.

The read was good. The typographic and grammatical errors other mention were no deterrent for me. And I enjoyed reading this book very much.

What I think is special about this book ist that the setting might seem futuristic but still everything could happen right now - well maybe in 20 years . People are still the same it's just that they are able to move to the stars en masse.
And still traveling between the stars is what this book is all about.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good love story between two people with a hard background, 20. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I did like the story very much.
Especially because both characters have so much baggage they carry around that the chance of them getting together is miniscule.

Other people might think the main characters (especially Julia) is just stupid. But with her background she has to reinvent herself to make the happy ever after happen. And this is hard. Which I think is very well described in her parts of the story.

What I especially liked is the part that characters which are "special" are the ones that understand each other best. All the while the "normal" people are very consoling and trying but don't get the real persons. I think this would be a good read for everyone who comes into contact with people that don't act like the norm but have their own set of rules and don't fit into society because of that.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good story with a few unexpected twists, 19. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Yes there are a few twists that seem to happen at just the right time. And a few event might not really be realistic.

Not realistic from a objective point of view or avoidable if the person would be thinking straight or had some common sense. Which she doesn't because she never had to deal with the real world and her world just fell apart.
I did like to read the book and find out more about the main character. And if fate wouldn't change a story in a few places it would not be a good story to tell. It would be boring.

I liked to cheer the "bride" on when she doubted herself and to groan in frustration whenever she was just unable to grasp what was right in front of her.
The happy end was a little bit fast and abrupt for me as well. But why should the author stretch this out if the groundwork has been set?

3.0 von 5 Sternen The story starts strong but gets to repetetive in the later books, 19. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The story is nice and strong in the first book.
There are some new twists in the second one. The main plot is pretty similar to the first one.
Books three and four are just reiterations of the first two. The difference is in the setting, the quest and the names of the two characters that are supposed to find each other. The plot which I am most interested in in a book stays the same.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good story with a few strange developements, 19. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I did like the book a lot and couldn't stop reading.

The wording is sometimes a little bit strange and there are a few mistakes that can not be intentional. To me it seems that good copy-editing is something fewer and fewer books receive.

As for the story itself: It starts strange and makes you want to find out more. You learn about the world as Eleanor does and you don't get much extra insight. Still there is some information that is not revealed which seems to be important. So you never know all and try to find out as to what the h... the character is referring to. Some information you'll get later on some you won't get at all.

Caution: The next paragraph might be a little spoiler for some people

The author tries to paint a strong person that is the born leader. Still there is some domestic violence that destroys this impression for me. It does not fit with the public person. Accepting violence because you love someone is not a leaders trait for me. The reactions of the rest of the group are the correct ones in my book. The victim defending the attacker is not. It's way to much what you see in regular domestic abuse situations.
Some might see this in another way. But somehow this did not sit well with me.

At the end the main goal seems to be achieved. But you don't get the release to know how it all ends. The cliffhanger is not in this quest as it is in some other books but in the story itself as you want to know how events are going to unfold further on.
Therefore I'll probably by the next book as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nice variant of the magic and shifter/vampire theme, 24. Februar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
The magic in this book is different. The magical creatures are different to what you came to know.
So no usual witches, glittering vampires or adoring werewolfes for you.
As usual with Ilona Andrews the girl is strong and witty and the males sometimes need be hit on the head to see straight.

The story itself is a detective story that leads from one case to a second connected one.
