Zoe Archer ï 4 SummaryY in England but considering the male love interest is a black man who s an inventor and highly respected by his peers I managed to overcome my disappointment This is probably my My Happy Easter Book favourite of the series The relationship between Gemma and Catullus is adorable Catullus is an awkward little suish and I love him I loved that the protagonistsrom the earlier books in the series come back Shimmer (The Rephaim, for the biginal battle Etcetera I had one big uck off sized gripe with this book and that was that King Arthur who turns up in the course of the story is referred to throughout as Your Highness DEAR AMERICA HIGHNESS PRINCEPRINCESS MAJESTY KINGUEEN IT S NOT THAT FUCKING HARD JESUS CHRIST WHY DON T AUTHORS OR EDITORS UNDERSTAND THIS OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOD Anyway This was a lot of un and a very satisfying end to the series But if I have to read one book where a king or ueen is referred to as your highness I mma ucking cut someone Although this one is the same insta love and continual lust preoccupation of the other three volumes I enjoyed both the two lead characters so much that I didn t mind Until they got to airyland where I completely and utterly lost patience with them Ok imagine this the world is going to be destroyed as you know it unless you save it swiftly Do you hang out with you new lover kissing speaking words of love etc etc or do you get off your ass and save the world already Sadly the author s answer is too much of the Twilights Burning former There is a heroine in this novel Her name is Gemma That is all I m going to say about her Not that she s not a nice person but really who really cares about her when Cattulus Graves is around I mean reallyI don t get it when my on line book buddies start talking about how much they love this hero or that hero I think they need to get areakin life Once I hit my later teens I was never one to go gaga over movie stars music stars or the like maybe because I knew it was all a a ade If I was going to be in love I wanted to know the real person So I was above that groupie mentality When I see the ladies on line talking about books boyfriends I roll my eyes and move on especially when I read the book and discover that the hero that they re going gaga over acts like a total boneheadThen I met Cattulus Graves Even though he s been around since the irst book my love was a gradual thing My admiration grew in the second book my love grew in the third and he became my soul mate in STRANGERIt was like Zoe Archer went inside my head pulled out my ideal man and wrote about him just The Ramayana for meA handsome black man with an above average intelligent who has a passionor what he does and everyone looks to him Fuego y Sangre for guidance except me because he knows that I am the only woman who sees and accepts him as he is and he knows that he can lean on me when the pressures of trying to lead the world wears on him While he is a geek and intelligent he can still kick butt and defend me and others with skill thatar surpasses geek and intelligent he can still kick butt and defend me and others with skill that ar surpasses yet he all does it with a sense of class and style He dresses to the nines and doesn t mind that I don t but all he can think about is all the things that he s going to get me if we manage to win the battle and save the worldBTW STRANGER has a plot and it s very good but I must admit that I was in too much of Cattulus high to pay attention But don t let my ascination deter you This is a great book but I was in too much of Cattulus high as you can tell he totally delievered LOL But if you really want me to talk about the plot here you go They save the world and live happily ever after Now all I have to get is remove Gemma rom the picture and #Put Myself Sigh It #myself sigh It always so sad to say goodbye to a series But it s also wonderful at the same time Seeing everything tie together and resolve itself is great This book was no exception We got to see all the previously mentioned characters draw together to ight the ultimate battle against the Heirs It was really nice getting to see the previous heroes and heroines and reaffirm that they are happy togetherCatullus is the one constant character through all the books in this series He is a brilliant particular man that caught my interest Lauri Törni - Legend - Larry Thorne from the veryirst meet I ve been really looking از دیار آشتی forward to his book and am glad that Iinally got to get a closer look at his personality I only wish that I had gotten to see of the person he was described as being dedicated inventor with a hard time staying interested in people before his mind wandered back to an invention instead of just being told about it He really seemed stunningly normal here when you look at his actions and ignore what we re told about him I don t know what changed between the The Kite first two books and the last two books but something did Theirst two books were excellent but the last two books were increasingly less interesting The Power of Place for me I actually had to take a couple week break in the middle of this one in the hopes that absence would make the heart growonder Luckily it did so it ended up being average instead of a complete disappointmentOne thing that has really bothered me. T conspirators she's sensing a scoop Especially when he mentions there's magic involved Of course getting him on the record would be easier if he hadn't caught her eavesdroppingLighting His FuseCatullus Graves knows what it's like to be shut out his ancestors were slaves And he's a genius inventor with appropriately eccentric habits so even. Overall I thought it was enjoyable but I did start to struggle at around the halfway mark I d give it a 35 to 4 stars I really missed the balance of reality vs paranormal that the other books had This one was pure over the top Thoughtful Interaction Design fantasy world like Alice in Wonderland or something along the lines of an acid trip ie16eet tall imaginary historical characters coming to life Nothing A course in Game Theory felt real about this story so it wasn t what I was expecting or hoping Also didn t really love the relationship between Catullus and Gemma A bit too syrupy sweet Andor three books now we hear all about his great inventions skill Love this series love this author This was not my Topless Cellist favorite but still solid Reador Halloween 2017 Reading Challenge Steampunk category Now I realize this book was not particularly steampunky while the other s in the series lead themselves to steampunk light But I wanted to read it so I counted it as such Judge me I m good with that Synopsis This series is an ongoing The Wild Queen (Young Royals, fight between the Blades of the Rose and the Heirs evil men bent on using magicor the so called greater good of mother England By this book they have Tax Progressivity and Income Inequality found the Primal Source of magic and intend to use it to conuer the world Cat and Gemma met in the previous book and Gemma has beenollowing Cat and his peeps to get a story After all she is a reporter and a story begs to be written The two Learning and Development fall in lust laterollowed by love and are reunited with the many of the previous Blades to beat back the Heirs before world domination is theirs Cue a trip to Arduino Development Cookbook fairy land and some serious battles and a dragon and we have an adventureolksWhy it did or didn t work Mastering Gephi Network Visualization for me It wasine Just weaker than the three previous books I didn t The Canadian Regime feel as much love and attachment between the MCs as I did with other Blades books especially theirst which is my Testing Aircraft, Exploring Space favorite of the series Just in case you actually cared This was aun walk through a great adventure And truth be told the adventure ighting magicing and all that business was my avorite part of the book A good ending to the series No complaints on my part Signed Zoe Archer you re still one of my avorite authors While I loved how Catalus and Gemma s romance really lourished and grew with this book the book dragged in places But since this book was the last in the series it stood to reason it was going to be bigger I was surprised at what magic the Heirs brought Un Cadeau pour ma Femme forth but in the end ZA managed to make it workor me It was a good wrap up to the story and that series This one was a little disappointing to me after the abulous three books before it Having said that there were some things I really really liked about it and I appreciate that the last in a series is sometimes very difficult to writeSome things I really liked about this one The hero and heroine are both great really great All the heroes and heroines in this series have been excellent and these two are no different Neither of them is one dimensional and the hero in particular is complex than most of the other #Heroes In The Series He S A Scientist An Inventor #in the series He s a scientist an inventor an introvert He s not used to blowing his own trumpet and I get the impression that he eels a bit past it at 41 The heroine is a journalist Shadow Bound from Chicago of ItalianIrish ancestry and used toighting Mapapansin Kaya? for what she wants I liked the progression of the hero and heroine s relationshiprom total lust to deep love It just seems so real and although it happens uickly it Buntus Foclora feels right I loved the way the story leapt straight onrom the previous book seamlessly I loved the length Although the pace dropped off in the middle Life at the End of thevTunnel for me the length allows the story to be given justice and the writing to reallylowSome things I didn t like so much The magic bit in the middle just didn t work well or me There were too many bit in the middle just didn t work well or me There were too many pixies and made me think of bad set moments Моя семья и другие звери; Птицы, звери и родственники from The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland NOT myavorite movie I would have preferred The Herd from 93rd for something much darker unnerving and scary Itelt a bit like a wasted opportunity The involvement of the Heirs was minimal I would have preferred something all the previous books in the series were stamped heavily with the Heirs as really nasty villains and it elt in this one that the whole story was missing that element a bit It was all a bit on the nice side Although the heroine s career was touched on I elt that the author could have taken this a bit The Audio Expert further It is aascinating theme the Dawnkeepers (The Nightkeepers, first woman in a tough career in a tough citySo in all not the best of these series but still very enjoyable35 stars but I bumped it up because Catullus is so great Trigger warnings racism violence misogynistic bullshitIs this series ridiculous Definitely Is it also a crapton ofun YES There are two main things that I love about this series1 It خدا بود و دیگر هیچ نبود features protagonists of colour2 It s set inun locations around the worldI mean the magic and the way mythology comes into the story is super Shemonah Perakim fuckingun too But those are the two main things that stand out to me So I was a liiiiiiiittle disappointed when this one turned out to be set predominantl.
