The truely bad thing is the book just stops. It comes to no conculsion that will inevitably be further explained. It just abruptly ENDS. Which is why I gave the story 3 stars and not more. It doesn't wind down it just looks as if someone just took the first third of this book and sold it off. Its not a trilogy more the first of 3 pieces to one puzzle.
What mysteries await at Coren University (actually a legendary high school)? What or who is a Horum Vir? Why does Monson have no idea who he is or what he is capable of doing? What makes him so attractive to the most gorgeous and talented girls at the school despite his scarred face is what his best friends would love to know!
The House of Grey captivated my entire family right from the start. We have a large household with a wide variety of interests and talents. From tweens - adults, this podcast had us hanging on every word, and the book itself doesn't disappoint. The exciting blend of mystery, action, and drama with a hint of romance and lightly seasoned with references to popular culture leaves you hungry for more at the end of each chapter.
The dialogue between the characters is bright and witty, and their complex personalities always hint at even more depth than you've already discovered. Secrets and mysteries abound, and it is fun to try to guess where Collin Earl is headed with each new revelation. The author also vividly describes the setting without slowing down the action which is quite an accomplishment!
The House of Grey, volume 1, is the first installment of the legendary House of Grey podcast which lasted 42 episodes. Due to popular demand, Collin Earl serialized his 300,000+ word original work into six volumes, and with the next installment already in production, you won't have to wait long to learn what happens next and to meet more fascinating characters!
First off, I am disappointed by the way this was split up into volumes -- talk about nickle and diming your audience. At 3-4 dollars per "book" you end up spending about $19 total. No other kindle edition of a book out there costs anywhere as close to this much for the same amount of story.
Secondarily, the story moved way, way too slow and then EXPLODED neat the end with scene after scene of super saiyan power ups. The progress of Monson's power could have been much better spread out through the book, far less cryptic, and thus more fulfilling.
Finally, the end of the 6th volume was such a let down. So, so very much was unanswered from any of the previous volumes and tons of new questions were tossed out there willy-nilly.
If all six of these volumes got put back together as the first of a series and the price hit < $6, I'd recommend it. But based on what I've seen here, I've gotta be harsh in my rating for the amount of upset and disappointment I feel.
Riveting opening, not sure I enjoyed the series. And it didn't really end in a satisfying manner, but I don't know that I'd keep reading another sequel series.

Despite it's obvious take-off from the Harry Potter story, it had potential. It blew it. Plus, it's one of the "series" type that is more like magazine installments. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Meg

The book itself is good BUT you have to get all of the volumes to get any 'answer'. There is never any "closure" in any one of the books. Read morePublished on July 28, 2014 by chewbarka
