Besides, who is going to challenge them? Second, these folks are loyal. They are ride-or-die. What an oxymoron! I could be wrong but in real life I believe that combo is called psychopathic. These devoted beings can destroy, drain or eviscerate one minute, then come quietly into your room and cuddle with you while you sleep the next.
Third, depending upon which branch of the peculiar they hail from, they legitimately have been there, done that, and possibly possess lifetimes of wisdom and practice. They have the whole vulnerable, loner thing down pat. No need for doctors of any kind. Not even a plastic surgeon. You could party hearty with your beloved and never wrinkle. Readers love a story involving a fish-out-of-water finding acceptance.

Can you imagine when risking estrangement goes beyond family and friends and extends into a galaxy? About the author. Dean has always loved making up stories for as long as she can recall. Fiction book writing was a no-brainer. Work, ill family members and other distractions of lesser urgency stayed her dream. But through it all she never stopped writing. Writing was her escape. It kept her dream alive.
After a job loss and after the family illnesses ended, she concentrated on writing with an aim to be published. She finally did, at first on her own, then through an early e-pub and now with Extasy Books. She thanks Extasy for picking her up. The publisher has given her the freedom to create what she wants without pigeon-holing her into writing in a certain way, as many traditional Big Five publishers expected her to do.
She writes historical and paranormal romances with diverse characters. Her interest in history coupled with a B. A in French Civilization helped her write her first book, a historical romance set in late 16th century France with the court of Charles IX as the backdrop. The comedy comes from the situations and relationships, as four ordinary boys compete to impress one girl, and extract the maximum drama from their last few weeks of vacation freedom.

Men of Charlestown by Andi Anderson Sparks fly when blue collared worker Allen meets Shiloh the baker, but as their relationship becomes serious, will they be able to handle the heat? When am I ever going to learn my lesson about the middle book in a trilogy. This was even better than the first one, even if again we have children of destiny and magic books and, now, elves. And the obligatory visit to Manhattan. This story is Michael's, and he doesn't disappoint. We also meet Rafe - oh man, Rafe.

Jim Dale makes everything that much better. At any rate, it means this wasn't a reading experience, exactly, but a listening one. He makes my commute more fun. Then along comes Beetles and Jake in this book! View all 3 comments. May 05, Hannah White rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was amazing. It started out kind of slow, but after about pages in, I was hooked.
Haven't been able to put it down all day. A lot of things were kind of predictable at least for me but that did not withdraw from how much I enjoyed this novel. I love the themes of this book.

I love Emma, how stubborn and brave she is, and I can't wait to see her fulfill her role in book three. I love how selfless he is, how determined and brave and strong. I love the bond the siblings share, and how it makes them worthy keepers of the books. I highly recommend this trilogy and cannot wait to read the conclusion! The potentially powerful aspects of this story - taking on the sins of another - are squandered by the juvenile crap and dreadful touchy-feely presentation.
The star of this book is Michael, but he is a very unappealing character and partly through Jim Dale's narration the elf princess is awful in her syrupy sappiness. Dale also gives us Jimmy Durante impressions that do not serve the presentation well. I am still puzzled by the contradiction of the Englishness of the narration and the American setting Baltimore, New York City.
The NYC Chinatown sounds a bit too much like the present day. I'm skeptical that in if it existed in the form described it would be welcoming to soup-slurping outsiders. The Kate storyline is the best, but things go downhill too quickly. I wish this trilogy focused only on her. We get hammered over the head with the extolling of sibling love - it's just too much.
