"Wonderful fantasy romantica"
I absolutely loved this book!

This story is worth reading over and over again. There is some violence, but it is so integrated into the story, you do not think about gore. (Nothing along the lines of the violence of Laurell K. Hamilton.) Keilor's methods of making Jasmine behave definitely upped my blood pressure and respiration. He takes tall, dark and handsome to a new level, and the self control . . . yum, yum. Definitely a keeper.

I read the reviews before buying this, and would agree all 722 pages held my attention. What I did not know when I started reading it was that it is 1 of 6 in a series (didn't really want to be that committed to a book). So, I was surprised on page 722 when it read "The End" with few answers to some question, and was a little frustrated. In general, the story is captivating. The characters are fairly developed. The reviews that I read said it was graphic and bloody. I didn't think so at all. The book's graphic sexually and sensually. In fact, almost from the beginning -- I was a bit taken back b/c the characters weren't really developed and it was hard from me to make the leap in the two main characters "loving" each other when it definitely was lust driven. And Keilor (the lead male) was hard to like because he treated Jasmine unspeakably (I think) and objectified her body and tried to dominate her or over-power her through lust-- that ain't love! I was never really clear on what the underlying story was -- besides the eventual love interest. Normally in books like these there are family feuds with some depth behind them, history, and just "something" of substance and this didn't really have it. I wish the ending was more full circle so that I felt like it was concluded. I looked up the other series books and it doesn't look like the 2 main characters are in the other 5 or 6 -- which surprised me b/c of the way Book 1 ended.

I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did... There were times when the plot twists had me a little confused, but got back on track rather quickly. If you enjoy an "other worldly" genre, you will enjoy this book. Some sex & some violence; but not overly graphic. All in all a good story line. I had a few unanswered questions; but the book is definitely worth reading...

This book was fantastic and very addicting. I couldn't put it down. I wouldn't reccommend this for children or young teens because there are a few sex scenes that made me uncomfortable, but the plot was well developed and overall it was an enjoyable read.

this book was not good at all...if the author had taken the time to turn it into 2 quality books instead of racing through one it may have turned out better. the main characters were annoying and their love story had no depth to it. i also did not care for the way the guy bossed around the girl who was aquiesent of it all...the girl needed to show some balls and stick up for herself. the plot was not thought out and this book was poorly written. I'm going to read a good author now, Patrick Rothfuss has never let me down

this book was ok...the entire time i was reading it i couldn't decide if i liked it or not. there were way too many & unnecessary sex scenes, some of which seemed to border on almost rape. if you took those scenes out you could probably take out about 200 pages. the book would actually be very good if you took out those scenes because you could focus on the actual story. it also ended quite abruptly.

The story hooked me and this would have been a really good book, but I was turned off by all of the weird and dominating sex scenes and the ending of the book completely sucked. I was expecting answers to questions, but there were none. I was into the story and suddenly, the story just stopped and it said the end. I really wouldn't recommend this to anybody.

I did read this book all the way through but honestly, times it was good and other times i had to force myself to keep reading.... the characters didnt hold character and their transformation was weird... it should be re-written and doctored up a lot

It wasn't the greatest. Some parts had me intrigued, but the other parts felt slapped together and made no sense. The love story had no depth as did many of the events in the book. For a world that felt like it should have been more fantasy than it was -- there was too much modernity included in it. The ending was horribly abrupt. It was only the icing on my cake of dislike. If I knew what was in store I would have never picked it up.

The events in the novel moved quickly with a constant stream of action. The plot occasionally got a little convoluted but overall flowed well. The beginning and mild of this story were great, but it felt rushed. It felt left open and too much was left hanging in the balance. I'm not going to repeat the plot but the world building was original and well done with a nice mixture of fantasy and tech (such as a medieval castles with lights that come on by voice command). I also liked the main characters and loved the sexual tension between the hero and heroine. The heroine had some stupid moments but they were in character and I thought the relationships between the heroine and her best friend was very realistic. I was truly sorry to have this bookend. Not only is it a good story but it is well written and thought out. I loved the characters, even the ones I hated! There were some plot twists that I truly didn't see coming some that were so obvious. It was a very enjoyable book and one that I had trouble putting down. The author's narrative style was very easy to follow and told from the main character's point of view. The first few pages were a little hard to follow and I had trouble figuring out where the dog fit in and I see he kind of disappeared after a while. Probably could have left him out but was a nice way to start the book. Overall this was a good book to read and I recommend it. The love scenes were well written and not so graphic as to embarrass a reader reading in a public place but graphic enough to make the imagination a bit warm. I look forward to reading more of Autumn Dawn's creations. There appear to be a few more in this Dark Lands Series which I will read with pleasure.

It was an ok book, but there were a lot of stuff that got me confused. First, I really didn't know what was going on with the guy's ex-girlfriend kidnapping Jasmine. Seemingly important battles were only two sentences long. And in the beginning Jasmine had Lemming, her border collie. The poor thing was mentioned two or three times in the beginning of the book and then was never heard from again. Instead, she was replaced by a small giraffe... Again it was an ok book, but i won't be continuing the series

If you look up 'the charmer' you will find the same book but only for the price of $0.01.

I told myself I would finish this book just because I started it. I only got to pg 577 of this book. The beginning was ok, but after halfway through, there was too much going on. The author seemed to get lost. The sex scenes didn't seem necessary and at times, the main character allowed herself to be controlled by sex. Almost like she was a sex slave. How do you fall in love with someone who rips your clothes off and plays with your privates without allowing you release just because you talk back? It wasn't sexy.

The ending was rushed and i do have to agree that there was some of pointless scense in the middle but all in all not bad.
Jo Lackey More than 1 year ago
This was not one of my favorites. The writer is all over the place and makes it difficult to follow. Not a smooth read at all. It's also a bit cheesy. I'm disappointed in the book and not sure I'll finish the series.
Noelle Liljedahl More than 1 year ago
there were soooooooo many pointless, random sex scenes that it actually made me laugh. i think the word erotic should have been used in the description bc it was bordering on it. the story is decent but if id known it was going to be so raunchy i wouldnt have bought it. i perfer less vivid romantic... encounters

Welcome to the world of the Haunt where secrets twist and turn. I thoroughly enjoyed this book although there are a few editing faults and the timeline can suddenly skip ahead. You learn more about the characters as you read through the book which makes a nice change from the books where you are supposed to find out and understand everything about the characters within the first chapter. The ending to this book sort of snuck up on me and I wasn't expecting it at all. I will be reading the rest of the books in this series Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I wish more detail would have been given to building characters. There are some pivotal plots that could have been powerful to read but it felt like author skimmed over them with lack of enthusiasm.
