respect ostrich Above all, her willing ignorance hadn t much sense, she wasn t hiding from the para, she had been working for them for 2 years So no, her ignorance wasn t only stupid, it was unbelievable And overplayed in the plot I m sorry to say There were a couple of plot sore points too One was her job, if she doesn t deliver she has to pay literally with her life Sorry, why would she accept Night shifts existA second is the enchantment gone wrong How was it possible the older witch didn t realize understand Still, it was a very nice read, one I enjoyed And I think I will read the sequel [[ EBOOK ]] ☊ Shadow's Messenger ↻ Coming home from Afghanistan was supposed to be something great That ended when I met tall, dark and handsome in a bar and wound up in a dumpster sporting a nice set of fangs and my life flipped on its head Now I m a messenger for Hermes Courier Service trying to make enough to support my ice cream habit while staying below vampire radar When this newest job of mine goes disastrously awry, it puts me on the hook to be indentured to a sorcerer for the next fifty years unless I can find a way to fix things What s hidden can t stay in the shadow s forever and my life will never be the same This was pretty entertaining It was slow to start as the story built, but once the action started I was enjoying it There is no romance in this first book I m not sure if the whole series is that way or not I will find out since I plan on reading the rest of the books.It s mainly following our heroine who is only a 2 year old vampire She has little knowledge of her world and you get to see her learn bits and pieces as she investigates a recent rash of killings of humans, vampires and werewo This was pretty entertaining It was slow to start as

rash of killings of humans, vampires and werewolves.I like Aileen s guts She stood her ground no matter how muchpowerful a being was she encountered That s a big part of what made this so entertaining I m off to read book 2 Right all I can say is that when a Mexican cartel comes for you in the middle of the night, and delivers you to my cellar to spend the rest of your days writing books for me, it s your own DAMN fault, T.A When I started this book, I sat thinking, this is a really great book, why have I taken so long to read any of T.A s books Only to discover it and all the other books are new releases and there AREN T ANY AVAILABLE TILL NEXT YEAR What can I say I loved all her books which I read in a fe Right all I can say is that when a Mexican cartel comes for you in the middle of

read in a few days and I can t wait for , all three books had very similar strong, snarky leading ladies that I just loved I highly recommend her books to fans of Michelle Sagara and other similar books.TA now tops my list a fav authors 3.75Great start to an interesting series I really enjoyed this book It was a different take on vampire novels I highly recommend it 2 1 2 stars The story has promise and pulls it off ok It is interesting to read about a very not powerful vampire However, Aileen gets a bit annoying She is so willfully ignorant to the point of being stupid It would help to understand something of the new world that you are stuck in Yeah, a bit overwhelming at first and I probably would want to hide from it except for the bare necessities for a while, but not 2 years No wonder she gets in major trouble She also is a hypocrite Hates whe 2 1 2 stars The story has promise and pulls it off ok It is interesting to read about a very not powerful vampire However, Aileen gets a bit annoying She is so willfully ignorant to the point of being stupid It would help to understand something of the new world that you are stuck in Yeah, a bit overwhelming at first and I probably would want to hide from it except for the bare necessities for a while, but not 2 years No wonder she gets in major trouble She also is a hypocrite Hates when people keep things from her but she does the same thing Aileen loathes that the vampires and others think they know what is best for her but she goes ordering around a werewolf and sorcerer in the same manner I get wanting to be independent but her attitude pisses off everyone, including her own family How did she ever survive in the military If you skip over some of her hissy fits and interior dialog the story actually is interesting The premise is interesting and could lead to some good cases in the future There was a lot of action and she doesn t always come out on top She does a lot of running away, which at her power level, is the smart thing to do Once she has to actually deal with some things in the supernatural world she negotiates and uses some people outside of the normal route of how things go to get what she needs done Sometimes she even asks for help I liked the story except for a few small plot holes and the above mentioned peeves It is a little bit of a different take on vampires and on urban fantasies If you are tired of the same old, give it a try 3.5 stars I discovered T.A White because I loved her new series, The Firebird Chronicles beginning with Rules of Redemption So I m sort of working my way through her other books I have to say that this one was underwhelming Not bad but I m really not feeling the characters Honestly, I m not sure if I want to pick up the rest of the Aileen Travers series.Planning to try the Dragon Ridden Chronicles next to see if that one sto my taste I discovered T.A White because I loved her new series, The Firebird Chronicles beginning with

i read from this author this was underperforming.In short too many and useless inner monologues and an annoying heroine acting childish and hypocritical Again one of those books where you get stuck too frequently in the head of the main character The heroine s thoughts dominate the book The storyline is constantly interrupted by it Either she remarks everything in a mostly wannabe quirky way, or you get a family or military history anecdote, or she is reminiscing about everything and nothing If you would remove all the inner monologues and weigh it against what s left, this would be a short story It sometimes interrupts dialogues for up to 2 pages cellphone , that is ridiculous.And it isn t even vital for the current story I just early on started skipping her inner monologues completely At this point the book was readable again.The inner monologues aside I also do not have a big love for the heroine as the story progresses Here some examples Being an ex soldier with military training, but does a job she never really cared to check all angles about, like the contract rules and possible penalties Her ignorance of what is going on around her is astonishing Adding her strong tendencies to be independent, it makes a joke out of her She stumbles from one incident to another without any knowledge Then blames others why they hadn t informed her on their own accord She calls for help as soon as she discovers she is again out of her depth And complains when she does not get help quick enough By the people she constantly holds at arms length She manages to escape on her own but does not even bother to tell the people who were running to aid her She tells half truths and keeps stuff to herself but gets mad when people don t confide all their information with her She is a petulant, arrogant child She is a walking talking contradiction Who has moments of wisdom and moments of otter stupidity It is really hard to like her.I very much enjoyed the Brokenlands Series by T.A White This series not so much
