  The Arcane Society Novels (The Second Sight, White Lies, and Sizzle and Burn)

Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick

Date: May 9, 2005 – January 29, 2008—   $16.47—   Book

An average of three and a half stars. (of a possible four, of course)

They’re fun books, and I like the way she’s moving from one of her pseudonyms to her main name (Amanda Quick is historical so you know those books will be past stories).

The fourth book in this series, The Third Circle by Amanda Quick hit the shelves a few weeks ago.  I have, of course, already reserved it at the library

 

 

 

===========================================================================================================

Legacy

Jayne Ann Krentz

Date: August 2001—   $6.99 —   Books

Two Stars. (of a possible four, of course)

I found the relationship between Honor and Conn too hard to believe.

Add to that the convenient villain and I wasn’t quite taken with this book.

  Truth or Dare

Jayne Ann Krentz

Date: December 2003—   $6.99 —   Books

Two and a quarter stars. (of a possible four, of course)

There were so many characters in this book that you lose track of all the story lines.  Plus, was there a book with Zoe before this one?  If not, there are way too many allusions to past events that aren’t fully explained.

 

 

 

============================================================================================================

Remembrance

Jude Deveraux

Date: October 1, 1997—   $7.99 —   Books

Two and a half stars. (of a possible four, of course)

There was so much jumping around in this book I found it sometimes hard to get which character I was reading about straight in my head.  All in all though it was a lovely book.

Oh, and I couldn’t imagine marrying and being intimate with a man that had been raised with me like a brother…

 

 

============================================================================================================

Eye of the Beholder

Jayne Ann Krentz

Date: December 1, 1999—   $6.99 —   Books

Two and three quarter. (of a possible four, of course)

You know, this book is strikingly similar to the Legacy book I reviewed above!!!  This one, however, se

Our families have bad blood… I the man have come back to settle the score and fallen in love with you, the woman of the man I’ve blamed for my father’s death… but wait, what’s this, another is to blame!?
