Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Rescuing under-aged vamp bait and retrieving stolen possessions is all in a day’s work for Discord Jones.

When a gorgeous, lying bastard of an elf hires her to find an ancient book, danger takes on a whole new meaning. The book holds an unbelievably powerful spell, and ‘favored prey of demons’ becomes an unwelcome addition to her resume.

Novel of 70,632 word count. Includes a sneak peek at Chapter 1 of Book 2: Something to Curse About.

L'autore

Gayla (or if you prefer, G. L.) loves to write and entertain people. She writes scifi as G. L. Drummond, fantasy and other things as Gayla Drummond. One of her favorite pursuits is working to rescue animals, and as a result, a pack of eight has become part of her family. She loves to ride, and is happy to have two awesome horses. On the human side, two teens claim her as ‘Mom’, and her life partner is a storm-chasing veteran of nearly thirty years.

4.0 su 5 stelle Arcane Solutions is a fun early novel for this author 24 luglio 2016
Di Becky Thomas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Arcane Solutions is a fun early novel for this author. Various dimensions were force apart thousands of years ago and now they have come back together, including Earths dimension. This caused a lot of havoc and mayhem on Earth with a whole bunch of supernatural beings now living here. Humans on Earth themselves had a portion of the population drop into comas to wake up as witches and psychics. Discord Jones is one of the humans that turned into a psychic and then became a PI.

Arcane Solutions is pretty fast paced and is an entertaining UF. The mystery part of the novel wasn’t too bad for a first effort. Most of the characters are likable, some are a bit mysterious. The writing is a bit amateurish at times but was expected since this is a pretty early novel for this author. Discord is a special snowflake; her psychic abilities seem to cover everything and keep expanding only to be humbled a bit by her inability to use most of her powers when panicking. She is still a likable character and has a lot of room for growth.

I’m not much into her insta-relationship with Nick and think it’s doomed to fail. I felt like the author needed her to have a relationship to write the story so we get Nick at the beginning who we just don’t know much about, mostly because he doesn’t share much, but he adds tension and drama. There is a set up for a love triangle and Logan seems like he’d be the better choice and I sense it’s going to go that way.

Many of the side characters are interesting and have lots of room to go places that I want to know about. The world building is coming along, it did take me a little bit to figure out that we are in Texas, but the author I feel is going to grow this area also and keep it interesting. All an all I think this is a good start for a series and I’m starting the next book.

There is violence that is somewhat graphic at times and sexual content that isn’t graphic; this is geared towards the NA to Adult crowd.

5.0 su 5 stelle A laugh out loud, action packed introduction 19 gennaio 2016
Di Jennifer Lally - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
So I bought this book on a whim. It sounded fun but having read so many books in this genre I was expecting to be disappointed - but I'm happy to say that was not the case here.

There is a wonderfully quirky cast of characters, a strange new world with its own rules that we get to learn slowly over the course of the book.

Cordi, the lead character is sassy but still very human - with very human reactions and it is great to have a lead female who can be both balls to the wall and scared about stuff too.

This is very much a story setting up the world and characters, but the story within in it is substantial enough that it's still fun to read.

There is plenty of action throughout and I personally can't wait to see where these characters go - I have the feeling there is a very interesting road ahead of them

4.0 su 5 stelle Very enjoyable start to a series 14 dicembre 2014
Di C Thilmany - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

When the melding of two realms took place years ago, it really caused chaos. A number of people fell asleep for a few hours up to a few months and woke up with abilities, and many of those people are now witches and warlocks. This version of the world also contains shifters, vampires, demons, elves and other types of fae. Discordia (Cordi) Jones was in a coma for three years—she doesn’t know of anyone else being asleep that long from the event—waking up with a slew of different psychic abilities; some of which she doesn’t she has yet to discover. Deciding to use them for good, she works for Arcane Solutions as a private investigator that often deals with the supernatural.

It’s easy to see elements from a number of different series, but this doesn’t come across as a copy of any of them. Cordi is a very likeable character who while kick-butt in her own way, it’s from the use of her abilities much more than her ability to physically fight, and she does get hurt often. Not quite as hardnosed stubborn when it comes down to backing away from a fight as some other heroines I’ve come across, she doesn’t easily give up. And she’s got plenty of interesting friends who are willing to help out.

In this particular story Cordi is contracted to find a couple’s missing teenage daughter as well as a very old book stolen from an elf.

I enjoyed this Urban Fantasy story so much that I immediately downloaded the second book in the series and have since read the third as well. I found this to be an enjoyable story with really good world and character building and interesting situations. The author does need some help with editing, though.

2.0 su 5 stelle Just eh...don't bother if you appreciate Kim Harrison 17 maggio 2014
Di Mandy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I recently finished Kim Harrison's The Undead Pool. I have loved that series. I'm looking for a new series to feed my addiction for paranormal mystery/horror/thriller/romance for when Harrison's series comes to a close this September.
I picked this up. Kim Harrison it is not. It's not even early Laurell K. Hamilton.

Drummond is clearly a fan of both Harrison & Hamilton. She creates a rather mediocre combination of a post-Melding (read: Turn) society in Santo Treuno (read: New Orleans - I don't have a clue where Santo Trueno is) complete with shifters (wolves, lions, and tigers so far) and vampires of the "lacy cuff" variety. Her main character, Discord Jones (seriously, that's her name) is bland at best; there's nothing special about her except these powers that just keep coming. Drummond is clearly a fan of the "I'll just add another magical/psychic power to fix it" brand of plotting. That means - light on character development, heavy on action. Discord is also surrounded by gorgeous men who all desire her, although I'm not sure why.

All-in-all, I was not impressed. Drummond will not feed my Harrison addiction (so she better crank out a new series soon). I'm not even sure someone who was a fan of early Hamilton (I was) would like Drummond, although it's certainly more in that range. If you want something that won't stimulate you & requires little to no engagement, this will be right up your alley.

I really enjoyed this one and am please to see I can surge on through a few more before I will have to wait on a new book. This is generally my preference for reading, I hate it when you have to wait for ages and then the author either 1) doesn't do a Prologue 2) launches straight in with no background whatsoever and you have no idea who any of the characters are, what breed of character they may be, or where it's set 3) puts so much background in the following book that you have to skim to get anywhere useful and then half the book is gone.

I like the character in this one, she is young which does excuse for some idiocy, but she is also drawn as a realistic character. The romance at this stage is kind of interesting. A relationship has been instigated, but there's definitely some room there to move things around and do a bit of imaginative decorating.

One thing I do like, is the author puts in some really sensible comments/descriptions in that make areas much more believable.

Lots of different types of breeds and characters which will also leave plenty of room to introduce future cast members.
