2.0 von 5 Sternen äußerst stabil (scheinend), doch..., 17. August 2017
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Ich hatte mir diese Halterung ausgesucht, da ich einen gewissen Abstand zur Decke benötige.
Leider verzieht sich die Stange beim Anziehen der Schrauben und Beamer mit drei Halterpunkten sorgen dafür, dass die Konstruktion sehr schief hängt. Es lässt sich jedoch problemlos justieren.
Wären in den Rohren stabilisierende Stücke eingearbeitet, wäre das Verziehen vermutlich kein Problem.

Wie schon geschrieben wurde, ist die Anbringung des Beamerteils an den Rest recht aufwendig. Eine zweite Person, die die Schrauben dreht, während die andere hält, ist hier viel wert.

Darcy has left all of his New-Orleans-memories behind and taken on a teaching job. He helps out Amber, who has taken over his part of the magazine, but mostly he keeps his past away - until Caleb shows up at the university and they get back together.
The rest of the book focuses around Caleb building his life in Oregon (opening a restaurant) and some revelations about his past.

What I do not quite get is the last chapter. It is set three years after the one before and confuses the hell out of me. There are several things that are not explained - maybe a few hints explaining how all this came to pass (not with Caleb and Darcy, but the others!) might have helped tremendously.

Darcy Rhett Butler moved to New Orleans because of his girlfriend's wishes, with whom he has a little magazine.
He works hard but is unhappy. As the paper has no ramped up layout, he has an interview with a well-known artist who is interested in working for the magazine. Said artist is not only interested in working at the magazine, but also in Darcy which creates some interesting problems.

Meist finde ich die Bücher von Lelis super und lese sie gern mehrfach hintereinander. Dieses Buch war zwar gut, doch hat es mich deutlich weniger in seinen Bann gezogen als andere ihrer Werke.
Ein paar der bekannten Charaktere au anderen Werken treten auf aus diversen Serien. Hauptsächlich Thies - die Baraushilfe im SMack.

Die Geschichten zu Jamie und Michael sind bisher die, die am besten ausgearbeitet und interessantesten geschrieben sind. Dass hier nun ein zweiter Band mit diesen Beiden als Hauptcharakteren wahrscheinlich scheint durch die Handlung in diesem Outtake, ist für mich daher ein Grund zur Freude.
Inhaltlich geht es darum, dass Jamie die Geschehnisse aus "Loving Silver" noch nicht verarbeitet hat und dadurch Probleme in der Beziehung der beiden auftreten.

3.0 von 5 Sternen At least we are not jumping around, 23. Mai 2017
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This issue follows Vikirnoff - whom helped to defeat the vampire of the last issue - and Natalya to Europe. Natalya is under compulsion planted years earlier to find something old as she can access (especially violent) memories of items she touches. The vampires hunt her for this gift, yet she seems not to understand what the "small task" they want of her is. When Vikirnoff and she team up, the main problem for him is the fact that she fights and references lots of movies - none of which he has seen. Many characters from previous books are either mentioned or make an appearance in this one, which ties in nicely. Sadly, this also is a problem (see i.e.4) where actions are mentioned that are not in the main series).

There are some troubles. Mainly contentwise.
1) "I wish I had known about incinerating the heart." <<< where has she been? She talked with Colby about this in issue 15 in the tavern!!
2) Vikirnoff tries to soothe Natalya and says "And the number who know the sacred words of healing is even smaller." <<< in previous issues all Carpathians (and some humans, who were taught) know the Healing Chant. This doesn't mean all of them are (good) healers. So this is mixed up.
3) Vikirnoff turnes into a bird and "his hands curved into sharp talons to grip the balcony railing". <<< Where do his legs disappear to then and where does he sprout wings as Natalya is on his back?
4) "Your prince is injured, his hunter is in the ground, nearly dead and now you and your woman will die." <<< What? What issue are we talking about here? Not the previous 15 somewhere...
5) In chapter 10, Vikirnoff can suddenly - without a blood-tie - talk privately with Mikhail. The common path is open to all - even the vampires so what they converse about is out in the open. Not good.
6) "catastrophic explosion between [Natalya and Vikirnoff]". <<< um... yuck. Some of the metaphors the author uses are not very fitting.
7) In chapter 16 Vikirnoff states he has fulfilled his duty towards Gabrielle though she is not yet Carpathian. This thought seems to have entered the authors mind later as in chapter 18, he still guards her spirit.
8) Still... how does he have a private conversation with Mikhail without a private path established through blood? ... sorry, but this is annoying! Especially when it is so much established.
9) During chapter 20, Vikirnoff plays with Natalyas buttonbellypiercing and muses about her pregnancy. Just a few chapters earlier, during her conversion, he stated he might not ever want her to get pregnant. Could he please make up his mind?

~~

I really like how Natalya is a strong character with her pop-culture-references that make no sense to Vikirnoff, but the issues this book has are so numerous, it dampens the read.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Controlling (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Leider muss der Autor einen neuen Lektor suchen.
Kommasetzung (je ... desto hat keines z.B.), falsche Schreibweise bei Sprachwechsel (Abb 1.13 enthält "Organizational Strukture" - "structure" wäre korrekt) etcpp.
Da dies jedoch nicht den Inhalt betrifft, nur ein minimaler Abzug. Das Fachwissen ist nicht an korrekte Rechtschreibung und Interpunktion gebunden.
Zu den weiteren Punkten wurde von anderen Rezensenten schon genug gesagt ;-)

Der Fotograf versteht es gut, die Modelle in Szene zu setzen. Manchmal allerdings zu gut. Auf manchen Bildern ist das Bondage gar nicht zu erkennen, da die Bilder so dunkel sind und nur ein winziger Teil beleuchtet ist. Sehr schade und dafür einen Stern Abzug.

In issue 14 of the series we get another bunch (five brothers) of ancient Carpathians we have never heard of before.
The de-la-Cruz-brothers had been sent to fight vampires in the Southern Americas. As they only travel through the Amazon-region, I guess we'll get some for the plains of Argentina and maybe someone for Mexico (and the small countries towards South America) in some later issue.

Juliette (what is that with non-fitting names to the region? It is a French-English name, not Portuguese and not Spanish) Sangria is of Jaguar decent and able to shift shape contrary to most decendants of that race as their blood is too dilluted.
She and her sister Jasmine come upon a laboratory of the Morrison Center. Riordan has been captured (how is not told exactly) and is freed by Juliette whom he recognizes as his mate. Conveniently, Juliette seems to be in heat (as per her Jaguar-blood) and they start mating, but come aware that Jasmine might be in danger as Juliette has not drawn the guards from Jasmine's trail, so they get out of their cave.
As jaguar-males are even more dominant than Carpathians and not willing to share females capable of shifting, we learn that they abduct and rape those females in order to keep the blood as pure as possible. This will become significant later in the series.
Due to this fact, Jasmine and Solange are not keen on living close to men or having anything to do with them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Converted by a vampire, 15. Mai 2017
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This sums up the main problem of this issue of the series which needs to be solved.

Destiny had been taken by a vampire who murdered her family in front of her, converted and abused by the same vampire.
And because we don't have enough characters before in the series, we get another pair of ancients! Nicholae Von Shrieder. Um... just a moment. "von" is usually German. But what is "Shrieder"? But that only is one of many of the name-problems in this series. Usually all but the youngest of the Carpathians should have old names. Either regional to Romania or deriving from languages that were spoken a thousand years ago (and longer if you check on the ancients - i.e. in issue 15 "Nicholas" is a name that is not 1900 years old, but only about 1500. A small check on name pages can give this information).
Nicholae had tought Destiny via his memories to fight and destroy vampires so she could be free of her tormentor but he didn't count on her to not respond and thus not knowing she is his lifemate.

I am not quite happy with the sexual component though. Destiny gets over her trauma too quickly, has hardly any flashbacks and gets swept away too easily instead of needing the control (which would be interesting as Carpathian males are all described as incredibly dominant).
