Timeless (Parasol Protectorate #5) by Gail Carriger

Overall, I really enjoyed this series. The ending did lose some of the light-hearted humor is the earlier books, but it was a very fitting end.

I love every book in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' vampire series, but this is definitely one of my favorites. I adore her vampires, and this universe is so much fun to get lost in.

Night's Child (Sweep) by Cate Tiernan

Tina Tosi, December 24, 2008

Honestly, as much as I love the series, I would not recommend this book. I've spent a lot of time convincing myself that it was not real. Hunter dies within the first three pages, and the rest of the book is a lot of heartbreak while you wait for Morgan to realize how dumb she's been for 16 years. It's not a bad book, but it leaves a bit of a sour taste on the rest of the series. I prefer the happy ending from book 14.

Spellbound: Book Six (Sweep) by Cate Tiernan
Spellbound: Book Six (Sweep)

Tina Tosi, December 24, 2008

This is possibly my favorite series ever. I adore the Sweep series. Morgan is an amazing heroine, and this is by far my favorite in the series. I love them all, but I never liked a narrator as much as Morgan (though Hunter was an acceptable substitute in 14). The entire series is wonderful and hugely imaginative. I read this book for the first time about six years ago (whenever the original release was) and still reread them constantly. The new covers are a beautiful addition, too, though I'm sad the price went up on them. I'd love to get sturdier copies, as mine have been passed around to anyone I could get to read them.

Breaking Dawn (Twilight Saga #4) by Stephenie Meyer
Breaking Dawn (Twilight Saga #4)

Tina Tosi, December 24, 2008

I had high hopes for this book, and they fell very short. I loved the series, and this seemed set apart from the rest. The series had a more fitting ending after Eclipse. For large gaps of the book, I was simply reading to get through, hoping it would get better. The change of POV was strange and after spending three books with Bella, I wanted to see this story from Bella's perspective, and Jacob's section was more something to get through.

Overall, the book wasn't awful, but it was a sharp fall from the other three in the series. The beloved characters were overlooked and underused, and the ending came far too easily for the build up it received. If all you want is a happy ending, look no further, but if you enjoy a genuine payoff, this falls short.
