It is not even a book, it is only a few case notes for the book. What a waste of time. IF there is a book done from this it would probably be good, as I have read numerous other books by this author. But as for this particular ebook - I am deeply disappointed.

Always enjoy reading about the series characters. But even for a short story, this seemed underdeveloped.

The writing style is like a list made in a notebook. It does not engage me as a reader. The plot also did not engage me and I found myself flipping pages to see if there's any point to the story rather than doing a proper read-through. I felt like I wasted my time trying to find something redeming in the "story".

While it was a bit tough to read as it's in one and two sentence paragraphs, I reminded myself that it's written in journal style and it's the diary of Fallon Jones; short, abrupt, and to the point. The story itself is basic, about a case that happened just before "In Too Deep". I'm hoping the short story case files will become a regular thing(and stay either free or very, very cheap), and maybe go back and review cases from past J & J cases from past, present day, and future that aren't included in the novels. I was most appreciative that there was a teaser of the upcoming "Copper Beach" that I'm excited to read.

This was supposed to be a full book, I thought. It only had 41 pages and was confusing.

People this is kind of just background history for the book "In Too Deep" this is not an actual book but I liked knowing what lead up to the events in the actual book.

This in between the novels read keeps you involved in the Arcane Society. Gives you a behind the scenes peek at a key player and gets you ready for the full story of the character!

Not bad, specially for free. Not the best I've ever read, but far from the worst.

Anything written by Jayne Ann Krentz is well worth reading. This is not as good as her novels, but still good.

this book fills in some of the holes in her series and makes Jones seem like a real person...I can't wait for the next episode

It is suggested that the author keep trying. End of story.

I got it because I'm a big fan of hers. It rounds out her Arcane Society stories, but isn't a necessary one for understanding.

I have been enjoying this series, and this was a fun, short read.
Tracibabe More than 1 year ago
Not the usual style for this author, the story read just like the title states: a case file. Quite enjoyable.

It really filled in some missing info.
Ecletic_Reader More than 1 year ago
This is a nice little filler piece to explain some things about Fallon Jones and Scargill Cove in the beginning, and to introduce the woman who will be mysteriously more to Fallon. I can't help but wonder if it was written for and then cut from In Too Deep. Krentz apparently wanted to see it published, so here it is. Regardless, worth the time for those who love Arcane.

This might have been a good book, but I could not get in to it.

You have to read " In too deep" too be able to understand the case files. It is not intended too be a full book so it was actually good for a short read as long as you understand the context.
