Horde (Razorland #3)

While I was waiting for this book to come out, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I kept playing it in my head, trying to figure out how it could possibly end. The conclusion I came to was that there was no way for it to end well and I was going to be sadly disappointed. To be honest, the third book of a trilogy usually sucks.

I am SO GLAD I was wrong. This book was perfection! Continue reading

Watching Deuce learn about the world was interesting. Watching people’s reactions to her was even better. They don’t realize it, but Deuce, Fade and Stalker are the best things that ever happen to Salvation. They know what the world is like outside of the walls. They know what is important.

Ann Aguirre has a gift for world building. There is always a fine line when creating a unique setting. Too much detail is boring and can’t really be accomplished without an information dump. Too little information and the whole story falls flat because the reader is spending too much time trying to figure out what the heck is going on. Aguirre nailed it. Continue reading

I really wanted to like this book.  I was disappointed by the first in the series, but decided to give it another shot with the second book.  I was presently surprised by the second book and so I went into this book with tentative, but high, hopes. Continue reading

My hopes were admittedly low going into this book. I did not much care for the first book of the series but I wanted to be fair and give the series another chance.

I must say that this installment was much better than the first. Rebecca Gober seemed to get more into her story. The writing was more natural, the dialog was not as stiff and the story took on some interesting turns. Continue reading

I think that if I didn’t read as much as I do, I would have enjoyed this book more. Let me explain… because I read so much (several books a week) I know what it feels like to have a really good book suck you in and make you feel part of it. A book that, if you manage to put down, you do nothing but think about the characters until you can pick it back up again. While the story did keep me mildly entertained,(there were some parts where I had to force myself to keep reading rather than giving up on the book completely) it did not grab my attention and allow my mind to escape into that world.

Gotta love Ashton and Beau! Ashton is so worried about what people will think about her since they live in such a small town. Because of her fear she shies away from Beau Vincent (the town Bad Seed) in favor of Sawyer Vincent- Beau’s cousin. On the surface they are the perfect couple, but Ashton is hiding too much of herself from everyone except Beau. Continue reading

I was so hooked on Ashton and Beau that I decided to give this book a shot. I usually don’t care for a series that follows different couples in each book, I prefer the same couple throughout. I read this book originally hoping to get more of a peek at Ashton and Beau. I was not disappointed. There is plenty of follow up with them, but I also got hooked on the story of Sawyer and Lana.
