I love Christina Dodd!

The story is a nice extension to her previous series, Darkness Chosen which I devoured. This story is a bit slow moving at first but Ms. Dodd does a nice job with unusual and supernatural plots to make them believable. Her heroines are always strong and her heros are ...

The only thing I loved was the beginning

This was my first C. Dodd novel and it will probably be the last. It had a wonderful beginning, the bodyguard/ex-boyfriend who caught up to his charge who was hiding hundreds of miles from her home and responsiblity. He took her back to her family kicking and screaming...
This was my first C. Dodd novel and it will probably be the last. It had a wonderful beginning, the bodyguard/ex-boyfriend who caught up to his charge who was hiding hundreds of miles from her home and responsiblity. He took her back to her family kicking and screaming. She stepped in the circle acknowledging her part as a Chosen One... And then everything went south from there.

Eventhough the background behind The Chosen Ones and the Others seemed fascinating it took way too long to get the story moving. The Chosen Ones were a clueless bunch of misfits who haphazardly pulled their talent together and the plot was weaker than the coffee I just got from Chic-fil-a.

    Had high hopes, maybe next time!

    I've read the Darkness Chosen series and I fell in love with them but with Storm of Visions (The Chosen Ones series) I was a little disappointed, her steamy scenes were there but I felt it needed more action. Hope Storm of Shadows is better.

    Not What I Was Looking For!

    As a fan of Christina Dodd, I was very disappointed in this book. Her paranormal series seem to be degrading further and further. This book stems off of her Darkness Chosen trilogy and takes the "deal with the Devil" one step further to a blood feud between good and evil. The premise was a little dark for my taste, but I decided to wait it out anyway. Unfortunately, my effort was for naught. Dodd flitted from sex scene to sex scene filling the limited space in-between meaningless violence. I still don't know what the point was! At the very least, this book should be re-categorized from Paranormal Romance to Bloody Erotica. Now if that is what you're looking for, this book fits the bill!

    Interesting mythology.

    I enjoyed the book, but felt it could have been improved. I find the underlying premise a bit confusing. I wish the author had spent a little more time fleshing it out. I thought the chemistry between the two lovers was a bit shallow. All in all, it was a light read, but not one of her best.

    In the middle with this one

    I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. However, I was disappointed that the charaters wasn't commisionate enough for me. From my view Suzanne daughter was self centered. There was no humor in her, it was all about her not wanting to be like her mother.

    This book wasn't additive. However an interesting read.
