Not Your Average Heroine

Asia is a strong, hard, determined woman who thinks she knows everything about how her world functions. So, it stands to reason that she is completely devastated to be kidnapped by Julian who is equally strong and determined and needs her to save his people.

Frank spins another excellent tale. Her characters are unique and pigheaded and frustrating in the most wonderful ways. She builds a completely new and complex society that draws you in. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Love Jacquelyn Frank.... didn't love this book.....

Have read all of Jacquelyn Franks books and love them, especially the nightwalker series. Characters are usually really great but this book just misses the mark. Leading man had all the potential but the leading female did nothing to add to this book. I kept waiting ...
Have read all of Jacquelyn Franks books and love them, especially the nightwalker series. Characters are usually really great but this book just misses the mark. Leading man had all the potential but the leading female did nothing to add to this book. I kept waiting for her to turn the corner from cold and harsh to loving but it just never really happened. This limited the connection between the two characters leaving the reader bored. By the middle I had to make myself pick up the book just to finish it. Don't think I am really looking for more in this series.

    Not Her Best

    This book started out promising and I liked the lore. Jac always does a good job of creating different but believable worlds. My problem with this books was that by the end of it, I could not stand Asia. She was annoying and did not make a very good leading lady. I get the strong female idea and usually like it but it went so far as to almost un-man Julian and make him look like a nancy. I don't know. I like alpha males more than snarky alpha females.

    A miss, but close...sort of

    I have read all of Frank's books and can say that this one had a different plot, great imagination, and interesting supporting characters in the males but the females are way too annoying. The female character's of the book are way over the top. There's strong women and then there's witchy women no one cares about. I had to make myself keep reading, hoping the females would tone down by the end but I was disappointed. Would probably borrow then next book, depending on who it's about, but don't think I would buy.
