[A&O #2] Hunting Ground Discussion
« on: July 21, 2009, 03:38:41 pm »
I very rarely get to read/review anything that's to my personal taste, so when I got "Hunting Ground," I was thrilled to death.

I'm not going to give any details away, but it was another great story; thus far, Patty has never disappointed me. I was pleased by the developments in Charles' and Anna's relationship and the mystery they have to solve to protect themselves and Bran's plans for the Werewolves kept me guessing and intrigued. I also liked the expansion/embroidery of the Were universe.

I'm probably preaching to the choir, but you really should pick it up when it goes on sale!

You are taunting us!  LOL

(Just kidding.  I'm dying to read this book, and now I'm at the nail-biting stage.  :D )

No taunting, honest. I just don't want to spoil your reading by giving too many details. It's a great book, and it explores some more Omega stuff, which I particularly liked.

It'll appear Thursday. If the mods don't mind, I'll link to it. Would that be okay?

That sounds good. If there's anything at all spoilerish, just make sure to state that right before the link so people can choose to avoid it if they want. :)

I think she got an ARC/Review copy- Harriet Klausener has a review up right now :S

And I think comiccon Anne Sowards is going to give a couple away there - said so on twitter!

A smallish part of my job is reviewing books, so yeah, I got an ARC copy. A girlfriend of mine runs a bookstore, and they get ARCs as well. I've always wanted to work at a bookstore, but have never been lucky enough to do so.

Thank you all for the kind words about the review. They are actually the hardest things I do -- I am always afraid of either sounding like a gushing school girl or a book snob.

there's another one I found...It's not much of a review, more a recap, but there's a bit about Patty and her world building talents

I'm soooo torn. One half is screaming 'read the reviews' for any snippets, but the half is saying nooooo- Wait till the book is released and everything will be a surprise. LOL
