Overview

Little Goddess: Book One

Working graveyards in a gas station seems a small price for Cory to pay to get her degree and get the hell out of her tiny town. She's terrified of disappearing into the aimless masses of the lost and the young who haunt her neck of the woods. Until the night she actually stops looking at her books and looks up. What awaits her is a world she has only read about—one filled with fantastical creatures that she's sure she could never be.

And then Adrian walks in, bearing a wealth of pain, an agonizing secret, and a hundred and fifty years with a lover he's afraid she won't understand. In one breathless kiss, her entire understanding of her own worth and destiny is turned completely upside down. When her newfound world explodes into violence and Adrian's lover—and prince—walks into the picture, she's forced to explore feelings and abilities she's never dreamed of. The first thing she discovers is that love doesn't fit into nice neat little boxes. The second thing is that risking your life is nothing compared to facing who you really are—and who you'll kill to protect.

    Good Stuff

    Others have posted reviews, so I will only comment that this is one of my all-time top 5 favorite books. There is lots of action, the characters are very well developed, and storyline is interesting. Very emotional journey watching heroine grow and learn to love. Although there are editing issues, IMO the excellence of the story transcends the errors. Amazed this author hasn't been picked up by a major publisher. I recommend this book to to everyone.

    Intriguing, engrossing, I cried through the last 4 chapters.

    You MUST get through the first 4 or 5 chapters of this original artist's first published effort. It is WELL worth it. Amy Lane takes Sex and Love, in particular Love, way beyond gender. By half way through the book, I couldn't put it down. The character development is professional and endearing at the same time. The descriptive scenes put you in the garden, in the story, wishing for a relationship and home as wonderful as she has developed. I not only cried through the last 4 chapters but for an hour after I finished, truly feeling involved in this woman's, these preternaturals' lives. A wonderful faerytail, well told, well done.

    VULNERABLE....BRING TISSUES

    I have heard about this series from friends on an Amazon thread and ordered all 3 books of the Little Goddess Series by Amy Lane. Being an avid reader and not so new to PNR, I have felt some of the more well known authors and their stories were starting to blend together and looking a little the same.

    This story starts out with an idea that made me sit back a minute and think of my own life. How one thing in one moment in time a touch a look can change EVERYTHING..
    Also relatable is the heroine as not perfect, not so pretty, a little overweight, very shy and wanting more. She is hiding behind a facade of dyed hair, piercings and bad attitude..

    Enter the ensemble Arturo who makes this life changing experience for Cory, Adrian her first love and lover, and Green amd all the others who will forever change Cory Kilpatrick while she struggles to better herself going to school by day and working night shift in a Chevron station in nowhere California.

    Three cheers for Amy Lane and (5 stars) for this glorious look into Elves, Vampires, and Faieries and with Cory's finding herself changing from the shy angry punk teenager to the wonderful woman she can be.

    Amy's writing with changes in POV by chapters gives you incite into all the main charaters which I find a great way to enjoy a story. I noticed that there was some mention here about the editing and errors in this book..Yes while there were some we can only hope that Miss Amy keeps up with her writing and some wonderful LARGE BOOK company will see her talent and publish her next book. I on the other hand will not worry about this as long as Amy keeps writing and I can enjoy her work...

    Excellent!

    Fair warning: you have to be pretty open-minded to read this. If you¿re not, that's too bad, because you¿re missing out on a great story. Cory meets, and falls in love with a vampire, Adrian, and an elf, Green, and there is a touching love triangle between the three. Although the development of these relationships is a big part of the story, it isn't the only thing that happens. The preternatural community is being targeted by someone, killing them off in a gruesome manner. Cory, Adrian, and Green, with the help of the rest of the supernatural community under Green's protection, set out to find out who's behind the killings. What they turn up is something from Adrian's past that all thought was long put to rest. That terror has one name, Sezan. <BR/><BR/><BR/>Amy Lane does such a wonderful job with this story. The emotions that each character feels are so real. I found myself rooting for Green to be part of the duo of Cory and Adrian; silently encouraging Cory to get past her hang ups over it, willing her to see that Adrian was perfectly fine with it. I kept getting frustrated each time Green was, well, thwarted would be a good word. I mourned the losses along with Green and his community. I was shocked and dumfounded at the end, even exclaiming out loud (which probably made my neighbors think I'm crazy) because, well, what happened at the end, I did not see coming. The story, the characters, the action, the emotions, all of it, are so excellently written, it is well worth the read.

    Buyer Beware

    Five star reviews do no make a good book. Good writing and plotting do. This is by far the worst novel I've ever read in my life. The characters rarely behave realistically and the plot is redundant. Simplistic tripe.

    A good story

    A friend told me of this book and so I decided to read it too. I found it to be surprisingly entertaining, though not my penchant genre. Perhaps a publisher Might pick up Amy Lane and help with the editing issues. Still a good read.

    Exellent even with the typos

    Amy Lane has created a unique world within a familiar genre filled with memorable and wonderful characters that show how truly powerful love, family, and compassion can be. The story was descriptive and I thought the writing style and point of view made it easy to identify with the characters. It would be incredibly unfortunate to bypass this series based on grammatical error. Yes, the typos are there, but I didn't love the story any less because of them. Lane's second in the series 'Wounded', was outstanding - surpassing even the first for me. I am avidly anticipating 'Bound', the 3rd in the series. Ms. Lane has left me missing these characters like I would miss true friends.

    Very disappointing

    The description sounded great and I was really looking forward to this book. Even the reviews were promising, so I was terribly disappointed to not only find numerous typos, but also extremely poor punctuation. Missing commas and dialogue done wrong are two of the most egregious errors. I also found the changing point-of-view threw me out of the story. I was unable to finish the novel and plan on returning it. I suggest that the author get a good editor before self-publishing again.

    Buy this book!

    The descriptive writing, the character development, the new twist on a classic theme are all surprising and rarely found in a first time novel. Amy Lane has crafted a universe of her own that is comfortingly familiar and yet new and unexplored. Each of the characters has their own voice, their own personality and yet they are inextricably woven together and dependent upon each other. The story line is great, and is so well written that it often reads like a movie script-you can see the action taking place in your head. The sex is beautiful, well described, but never gratuitous. The book would not be the same without it. If you can overlook the poor editing (typos and such) you are in for a very good read. The only question I have is, where is the sequel?????????

    Solid first effort

    Amy Lane brings us into a warped geography of the California Foothills in her first novel, Vulnerable. The book features a heroine named Cory (among other things) who realizes that the life she had planned for herself and the world she thought she lived in are not what she imagined. Cory starts out abrasive and cranky, but as the book progresses we get to see that this was just a front against the so-called real world-- as she feels more and more at home in the preternatural world of Adrian, her vampire lover, and Green, Adrian's sun and moon and stars, the real Cory emerges, and she's really pretty awesome.
