I didn't like the first in the series.  Too many POV switches.  Although I didn't hate what I read, I didn't get captivated by anyone character enough to continue!

It is a good cover.

Precisely why I never liked the series.  But I do like the covers.  I think they are strong, attractive and mysterious covers.

I tried one of Dalglish's books.  Not bad.  Too much head-hopping to keep me immersed in the story, but he creates decent characters.  Can't say if the plotting held up as I was pretty much only sampling.

The attitude of the character (main) is why I don't like or read this series.  It may make for mayhem, but the self-centeredness means I just don't care about the character.


I love the covers.  They don't seem too romance-like to me.  I nearly bought the first book based on the cover, but then I read the first 6 chapters or so.  Just didn't float my boat.

Fated FTW!

I'm on the fence on this one.  If you found it grim in places, I might be unable to read it.  Grim is a lot like humor.  Everyone sees it differently.

Demon Hunter and Baby -- by Anna Elliot  Ugliest cover I've ever seen on a FABULOUS urban fantasy--this book has it all--intrigue, great pacing, fabulous characters, a possible romance.  It was awesome. 


Can I nominate two?


Benedict Jacka:   Fated, Cursed and Taken -- these books were so good the publisher took all three and published them in the same year (I really don't know the history, but I have read all of them and they are quite possibly the best new UF series I've read in years.)   If I had to choose between this series and Demon Hunter, there is only one reason this would get an edge (and I won't reveal that reason to avoid  spoilers.)   The characters in this book are fascinating, unique and awesome.  So is the magic/rules.   These are must-reads.

There's so much you can do with a dragon--these covers really are just kind meh.  And I hate the POV of the villain especially given BEFORE the hero knows it.  Great review as usual.

Nice!  Stainless steel bottles would look nice as well.

I don't see a cover shot...

Call me shallow but bringing Anita Blake into the description totally put me off. What? It's going to be a series that degrades into ... plots that are an excuse to have more and more outrageous sex scenes?  "'Cause if that isn't what you meant, you really shouldn't put a reference to that series in your description.  So I dunno.  I left it off my TBR just on that description.  But it sounds like other than a couple of missteps it might be a good read.  I dunno.
