There were too many times that I was rolling my eyes at Rachel’s thoughts and actions, but I still mostly enjoyed this book. It’s an enjoyable series, but this one wasn’t as good for me.

This series isn’t perfect, but it’s enjoyable and I’m listening to it a second time after first hearing it 5 years ago.

Lacks the pace and flow of the first book, but I still enjoyed it. I’m re-listening to this series as I’ve not heard it for 5 years, and I’m glad to say I still enjoy it and it wasn’t just a rose tinted memory. The series continues to keep my interest in all the future books.

I really like the Kate Daniel’s series and Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews, Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter, The Others series by Anne Bishop, Imp series by Debra Dunbar, and Crossbreed series by Dannika Dark. If you like those, you’ll probably enjoy this series too. They’re not all quite the same feel as each other, but all enjoyable in their own ways.

I listened to this series about 5 years ago, and the recent release of book 14, American Hunter, prompted me to listen to the whole series again first before listening to that. It really is a good series, and I’m glad I didn’t just have a rose tinted memory.

Enjoyable, in a light easy read way

I enjoyed listening to this. It was a lighter read that didn’t grab me and immerse me in the read as much as some, but enjoyable all the same.

As far as being marooned on a desert island romance book goes, found it better than On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves, which other people seem to love more than me. But it’s not as good as Surviving Raine by Shay Savage which I really enjoyed and has a lot more grit. Both those books are m/f, and I’ve not listened or heard about any other m/m books with this plot.

In this book, both characters fall into the gay for you category, but it’s a gradual thing.

Mixed bag

I keep giving this series a go, but I don’t know why. I like the concept, but I don’t think it’s delivered half as well as it could be. I found myself getting a bit bored at times, but then other bits would be good. It’s probably one of the better books in the series.. maybe? They’re sort of rolling into one so I can’t really remember. It’s an ok listen, so I tend to get another book in this series when I can’t find anything else I want to listen to.

Couldn’t finish it

Can’t put my finger on what my problem was with this book. It kept losing my interest, and I’d drift off, and even started listening to other books (which is never a good sign). I kept going back to it and trying a bit more, but the same would happen again. I think the idea of the book could work, but the pacing is off and the plot needs to be tighter. I ended up not finishing it and will return it. Has potential, but it missed the mark. Younger readers might enjoy it.

This story frustrated me and bored me, and despite my best efforts, I couldn’t even finish it so I’ve had to return it.

Probably one of the better books of the series I’ve listened to, but I still often feel a bit disconnected from it all. Maybe it’s because of the narrator? I wish this series grabbed me more as it’s a great concept.

It was ok

I sort of enjoy this author’s series, but it does sometimes feel like a bit of a slog to get through it (partly the narrator I think) and it doesn’t grab me by the heart or make me drop into the world as I listen. Nice enough story. Compared to the other books in the psy-changeling universe it’s probably somewhere in the middle. I like the concept of the series so I wish I connected with it more.
