I found this book depressing and could not engage.
It was difficult to know how to judge this as I discovered when I had completed it, that I had not got the full book, just a sample.
As it went, it was fairly typical of the genre, but the reason for the title had not yet been made clear. when the sample ended.
I would probably give it a 3 star rating if it were complete, but feel that I can only give a sample 2 stars as I cannot be sure of where the story was going.
Richard has disassociative disorder amnesia and has asked Raker, a PI who specialises in missing persons, to find out who he is.
Raker delves into what Richard knows – or believes that he knows – but starts to become suspicious about some of the people who have been helping Richard find his identity.
The story is slightly confusing at the beginning as there are sub-stories being told also which are inserted into the text, randomly it would appear, between the main chapters. But by half way through the book, if you persevere, which I did as I became fascinated by what was being discovered by Raker, the links become clear. Maybe if you had read previous books in the Raker series this is a typical method of storytelling by the author and it would not have impacted in the same way. But I haven’t.
Nonetheless, you did not need to know anything more about Raker other than he was very persistent even when threatened with violence and even when actual violence was performed upon him. He admitted to being scared but still he went on his voyage of discovery.
I really wanted to know how Richard came to be found on the shore and why his memory was missing and the story drew me in. Twists and turns and unexpected events trap you into reading yet more and not putting the book down.
A collection of stories [by Melissa Snark] which reflect a number of paranormal genres.
Some I had read before, so I chose to read the new ones. Mainly wished I hadn’t!
Draken, by Solease Barner
Typical dragon shifter with a temper and huge Alpha issues meets human and…
You know the story, I know the story, we all know the story. So why bother to read it?
- Noble Secrets by Cecilia Dominic 1 star as got bored quickly.
- Call of the Dragon by Elianne Adams
I got really bored by chapter 20 of 27 chapters. It was fight – heal – fight – heal – fantasy land – traitor – and so on.
2 stars as I did get more than half-way through.
- First Light by Tami Lund
Prequel to Light Bearer series.
Started OK but then I got bored. 2
- Treasured Find by Nancy Corrigan
- All Royals are twins.
- They don’t look like their siblings – why?
- All royals have 3 shifter animals inside them and are therefore extremely rare.
I bought the continuation story about messed up Royal Devin.
- Beautiful Mistake by Nancy Corrigan
The Royals look for Molly, Megan’s twin.
Too repetitive from 1st book. 2
Sadie has now married Tyson – now that he has been tamed and is no longer feral he can become a good mate for her.
Sadie, as explained in previous books, was not born a werewolf and it is taking her a time to get adjusted to her new situation especially now that Tyson is no longer feeling the need to be Fred the ‘tame’ wolf for her.
Tyson of course, still has to perform his pack duties, which is again something that Sadie needs to get used to.
Enjoyable read as are all this series.
