Loved it more then I expected.

I have not read anything by this author so I was not expecting anything but he really surprised me with this book.
We get into the book quite quickly and we are told a few things early on but there are some twists at the end that I did not see coming.
There is some action, mystery and a little romance. I liked how the author did the romance, (who the main character liked), I thought it was realistic.
There is no sexual content or profanity but it does have some mild violence. This is suitable for all. Young adults and adults alike would love this, I would highly recommend it. The author also gives us a teaser of the second book and that one has me intrigued since a lot happens in the first few chapter that I was really surprised about.

The narrator did a good job in voicing all the characters.

OK

Any additional comments?

I did not like it as much as I wanted to. I loved the description and I thought that it is up my street but there is something about it, which I can't put my finger on it, that I did not like. It was interesting and slow going at times.

That is not to say the book was bad but I just could not connect with the characters.

I would still recommend it, since others might like it more then I did.

OK

Any additional comments?

I have read books by this author and loved them. So when I saw this I had to get my hands on it.
However, I find that I have mixed views about this one. I felt that not a lot happened and they where just running from the enemy. This is more of a romance in my opinion because it is more of should we, shouldn't we. So I found it slow going and frustrating at times. But I did like the powers they had, which I did not expect.

This does end on a cliffhanger, so if you don't like that sort of thing I would wait for the other books to be published before you buy this one.

Darcy Down the Rabbit Hole.

Any additional comments?

I have not read/listened to the other books in this series, so I did not feel I was missing anything since we are told repetitively what happened.
The book was interesting but I found somethings where repeated a lot and this slowed the book down.

I loved the narrator, I thought she did a great job at voicing the characters.

Fantastic!

Any additional comments?

The book started of slow but persevere the story does get better and there are twist and turns that I was not expecting.

This has a bit of everything; action, romance, fantasy and a strong female character.

This is not a standalone since the main character hasn't saved her brother yet which means there is more to come.

Would highly recommend this book.

Historical Romance.

Any additional comments?

Another great read by this author. I liked the mystery, what the characters would find out and how this was going to affect their relationship.

I would highly recommend it to those who love romance.

Any additional comments?

I have not read/listened to anything by this author but I liked the description so I thougt I will give it ago.

The narrator I liked, he voiced the characters out and gave them their own personality.

The story on the other hand I have mixed feeling about. I found it slow going at times and the aliens acted too humanoid. They got depressed, drank, used bad language, had a police force that acted like cops we see in movies, etc.
I would have liked more differences between us and them. This was unfortunate because as I was listening to the audiobook, I imagined the characters to be human then alien, except for one/two due to the way they acted.

This book has some moderate violence and profanity.

OK

Any additional comments?

I thought I knew what to expect in this book but the author did surprise me. However, I did find it slow going at times but I did like the scientific information in the book, since I was not expecting it.

The narrator I found had a monotone voice and this did not help the story, maybe this could be why I couldn't get into the book or connect with the characters.

Clean historical romance

Any additional comments?

I found the story in certain areas to be predictable but I did like the mystery.

It has a strong female character which I am not sure I believe would do things she did in that era but since we don't hear about them, it does not mean that they did not exist in that particular time period.

I would highly recommend to all since it is a clean read.
