"Jen Blood has created my favorite narrator of the decade: the whip-smart, sassy, and delightfully stubborn Erin Solomon. The story she tells--with its hidden turns, dry humor, enthralling pace, persuasivecomplexity, and vivid setting--is absolutely unforgettable. Blood is onehell of a writer."--Lewis Robinson, award-winning author of Water Dogs and Officer Friendly and Other Stories
"If you love crime fiction and you're not reading Jen Blood, you're doing yourself a disservice. A fluid, poised writer with uncanny insight into the workings of the human heart, Jen Blood is the real deal."--Layton Green, bestselling author of the Dominic Grey series
I've thought long and hard about this review and finally decided what I want to say. Here it goes:
I really enjoyed this series. The characters are great. The story is gripping. It was fairly well written. Now here's where the but comes in and it's a big one.
Did they not enlist a copy editor? I'm serious. The author frequently changes writing style from book to book. Some books are completely from Erin's point of view. Other books show multiple points of view, which I actually liked better. In some books the chapter labels which character you're following, ex. "Chapter Three - Diggs".
Next there are some absolutely ridiculous grammatical errors such as missing periods and spaces. Not to mention the fact that the author manages to misspell or completely call characters by the wrong name. This becomes a bigger problem in the later books but come on! Joe Ashmont is called George Ashmont. Reynolds is referred to as Jensen. Suddenly Urenna becomes Urella for half the book. Willet referring to Mandrake as WILLET. And the smaller change of Allison to Alison. I would have given this series five stars but I just can't. I'm so perturbed by the sloppy copyediting that it distracted me from the rest of the book.
There were things I liked and found interesting about these books. What I did not like and the reason I'm giving the series a low rating is the heroine herself. I'm tired of books about women who lack the tiniest shred of common sense, who don't care if they endanger others due to their inability to control their impulses.
Got the first book (All the Blue Eyes Angels) as a freebie and thought it sounded like a good book to read as my first ever Kindle book. I was devastated to find out it was a five part series because I didn't want to have to commit to that many books, but I paid the $9.99 to get the entire series and read them all on my commute to and from work, stated up late to finish them before bed, and woke up early to read them some more. I absolutely loved this series. To be honest, I'm a little heartbroken that I won't be able to enjoy more adventures with Diggs, Erin, and (my favorite) Einstein now that I'm done with the series and the prequel. I hope this author keeps pumping out more books as the time goes on! Two thumbs WAY up. Great style of writing, has me on the edge of my seat, and I audibly gasped a few times and may have uttered a few choice words when certain people got shot. Loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for an exciting read.
This is undoubtably one of the best series of books I have ever read..... and I read a LOT of books! I first read the first book in the series - All the Blue Eyed Angels- as an Amazon free book a while ago, and when I saw this series presented at LESS THAN HALF PRICE, I couldn't resist giving myself the treat of having and reading all five books in the series. The series is about a very convoluted ???plan ??? That centered around mind control experiments ???? Supposedly ????? actually done by the U.S. government back in the 1930s...... and which , in the book, continues through till this day. Erin Soloman, and her sometimes boyfriend , reporter " Diggs" get into many deadly eacapades , all of which center around the death and mayhem ( spoiler here )brought about by the Agents" who, through no fault of their own ( having been the subject of mind control experiments since early childhood) were pre-programmed to go into murder or mass suicide mode while scattered all across the world. Hiring: think Jim Jones and the Jonestown suicides. Enjoy....you will not be able to put these books down, due to the old " gotta find out what happens next" thriller feel these books have
It has been a long while since I have found an author with the talent of Jen Blood. Her characters have such depth that you truly grow to care deeply for them. The plots are intricate and believable and so full of twists and turns you can't put the books down. Also all the words are spelled correctly! I loved these books and look forward to getting to know everybody in the next series. Only please tell me this isn't the last we hear from Diggs and Sol please please pretty please with murder and mayhem on top!!!
I have picked up individually over several years, but had 1 missing. So when I saw the set, had to get it. Started at the first book and never stopped until the ending book. It was just as good as I remembered and one book better. Jen Blood absolutely knows how to wind in and out of a story and keep you reading. Erin and Diggs are constantly in the middle of something deep and dark in their respective pasts. I very seldom read books more than once, but these books will definitely be read again sometime in the future. And very well edited, which is a must for me.
Started reading and had a hard time putting it down, I wanted to keep reading but my eyes started hurting had to stop for a little while, then went back to it. The mystery keep your mind Wondering who was at the top so they could stop them. Want a good series read these. Mind blowing.
I found these books because of the one that actually comes after this series, The Darkest Thread, which I loved. After finishing that one, I came back and got this series and was not disappointed. It's an emotional roller coaster ride - funny one second and hold-your-breath-and-don't-look the next. The writing is exceptional, the characters seem very real, and while I'm technically a cat person, I just love the dogs. I'm currently waiting for the next book.
