3.0 out of 5 stars Book #2, August 11, 2007
This review is from: In Her Bed (The Dragons of Challon, Book 2) (Mass Market Paperback)
Looks like I will be the "voice of dissent" here. First of all, I want to go on record as saying how well written "A Restless Knight" (book #1) was.

The style of book #2 (this one) is different as it occurs AT THE SAME TIME, BUT FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE as book #1. It was kinda neat, actually; except that there was repeat scenes and EXACT dialogue from book #1 throughout--but again from the perspective of Damien or Aithinne. Yet, when you already know the final outcome(s) kinda puts a "blah" on the suspense/drama.

Okay, that repetition aside, there was a great deal of repeated conversations and thoughts from this book alone. Case in point, Evelynour tells Aithinne something, Aithinne then repeats it to several others and unfortunately, we have to read that same information over and over again. This happens throught the book. And dreams that we read, then experience--almost verbatum. Come on...

Also, I did not like Damien's character! Up until the final millimeter of the book he showed very little feeling for Aithinne other than as a bed partner. It even appeared that he USED her in bed thinking of Tamlyn.

And, that entire "he loves Tamlyn" just got old.

And, all the arguing! ugh

The 3 brothers and guard didn't add to the story, but took away from it. Again, my opinion.

All the jealousy was just tiring. If you remember in book 1 it was Tamlyn that felt Aithinne was the "prettier" cousin. "Wish" (LOL) they could have somehow come to terms with that early in this book.

Finally, the title, "In Her Bed." Well, with a title like that can't really take the book to the local auto shop to read while having the car repaired, huh?

There it is, the voice of dissent. Sorry. I really wanted to like this book. I read book #1--twice.

Hi Reba,
thanks for the review, very helpful. I don't really like multiple viewpoints in fiction, as for me they slowdown the pace
