And the love in this book was TO DIE FOR. it's just so amazing and passionate, just like out of a fairy tale.
Though, I DID find some typos and errors, but I don't really care.
I really recommend this book to people who are into vampires/mysteries/romance.
And the ending had me begging for more! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE 5TH BOOK!!!! Hope it comes out soon, cause I can't wait too long. This SERIES (yes, ALL of the 4 books) is a 'MUST READ'
The idea for the story is good, but there are so many discrepancies and grammar issues throughout, it's difficult to have too much praise. Caleb and Sera's marriage was 800 yrs ago, then it changes to 600 yrs, then Caitlin travels back in time in book 4 and Caleb and Sera are walking around with their son. WHAT? The year is 1790. Sera is still human. Me's thinks the author needs to fix all this stuff. In book 3, Aiden tells Caitlin a vampire can make a baby with a half breed like her. That's why she became pregnant. He also tells her, it IS impossible however for a vampire to impregnate another vampire.
In book 4, Caitlin mutters to herself, that when she meets up with Caleb, maybe they can make another baby. Say what?
Vampires cant make babies with each other. Cant have Caleb being human in 1790 either. Remember? He and Sera were supposed to have already been vampires for hundreds and hundreds of years. If thats not enough, the author accidentally refers to Sera as "Samantha" instead and confuses the reader. This happens multiple times. We see Polly refer to boys as "guys" in the year 1790. No one used the term guys back in that century. It is modern day slang.
Would love to know, how the wolf dog travels back in time and remembers "it all" as well. Then, Caitlin gets all sad on the dock and just flies away leaving faithful Rose behind? Im sorry, but scoop up your dang wolf. You left her there? "Hate leavin her behind, but she's got a connection with Jade" Really dumb.
Book 5 soon grabs your attention with a huge faux pas...Caitlin is sent back in time once again. This time its 1789. What does Caitlin say? She says she just spent time in 1791. A two year difference.Read more ›
The book is fast paced with enough action and twist and turns to keep you engaged until the end. Morgan Rice is a gifted writer who has jumped into this series with both feet! She improves with each book she writes and maintains a great relationship with her fan base. I can not wait to see what else she does!
However, the endless typos have finally finished me. There are many, many instances where the sentences don't even make sense and you have to guess at what word the author actually meant to place there. Also, I find it particularly annoying when an author gets their own characters names wrong. There is a whole chapter in this book where Sera is referred to as Samantha... a completely different character from a previous book. Now, I can only assume that this problem was caused by the multitude of characters with similar names... I would encourage this author to branch out a little. It seems a bit much to have a Sam (Caitlin's brother), Samuel (Caleb's brother), Samantha (Sam's temporary girlfriend), and Sera (Caleb's ex-wife) all in the same book. Not to mention the whole Caitlin, Caleb, Cain, etc... It is ok to use different names, in fact its a sight less confusing for readers.
The other main problem keeping me from ranking this surprisingly entertaining series with more stars is the constant lack of continuity. Stating that <<SPOILER ALERT>> Caleb and Sera had a child together 600 years ago and then going 200 years into the past and meeting that child... doesn't quite add up. Also, the rules for what the vampires can do seem to change very often. It's completely illegal for a vampire to mate with a human, but if they do and they have a child you can have the coven retro-actively sanction the illegal union? This makes no sense. There are also very abrupt changes to character traits.Read more ›
It should come as no surprise if you have seen my reviews of the previous books in this series ("Turned", "Loved", and "Betrayed") that once again I find myself conflicted as to how I feel about this book, the fourth book in the series. On the one hand I feel that the premise of the series is quite unique and unlike anything else in the world of YA vampire books, but on the other hand, inconsistencies in the writing and cliched characters frustrate me.
While I had been somewhat frustrated with the 'insta-love' that occurred in the earlier books and I had been somewhat frustrated with Caitlin as a whole, that frustration was nothing compared to what I felt in this book. One minute Caitlin was declaring her undying love for Caleb, the next she was in bed with Blake. One minute she was planning her future with Caleb and their unborn child, the next she was planning the same, though with Blake. One minute she was, well you get the picture... The girl is seriously more boy crazy than Aura was in Jerri-Smith Ready's "Shade" and "Shift" (and at least Logan and Zachary had extremely developed personalities/ some redeeming qualities, Caleb and Blake were basically the same character- quiet, stoic, etc.- save for their looks). And she lacks common sense. She jumps to conclusions (and the wrong ones at that) constantly and these conclusions always have dire consequences (ie. the death of a character, the loss of a relationship, etc.).
However, putting aside my aforementioned frustrations I did like the plot of this book more than any other book in the series. I found it to be similar to that of Lauren Kate's "Torment"- jumping through time and risking everything to save a love.Read more ›
