"The Britlingens Go To Hell" by Charlaine Harris. This story is a bit hard to classify. The story involves two female members of an elite Britlingens guard (who appeared briefly as bodyguards in All Together Dead, Sookie Stackhouse book 7) for hire who accept a contract with a thief on a recovery mission to Hell. The setting is a planet in a futuristic alternate dimension. Translation: hovercrafts and time travel ere are a couple historical cameos that pop up inexplicably in an attempt at comic relief; attempt being the operative word there. And Lucifer himself as the villain is more interested in sadomasochism then anything else. The obligatory hellhounds serve as prison guard dogs.If I hadn't read Charlaine Harris before, this story would probably have kept me from seeking out her other books. This just feels like she phoned it in. The writing is not good, the characters underdeveloped (even for a novella), and the globe convoluted and poorly explained. Since I know that Charlaine Harris is a amazing author, I'm going to dismiss this effort as a ual Content: references to sadomasochism and male rape. Anatomical incompatibilities.2 out 5"Magic Mourns" by Ilona Andrews takes put in the same globe as the Kate Daniels series. While Kate is in a few scenes, "Magic Mourns" focuses on Kate's best mate and fellow Knight in the Order of Merciful Aid, Andrea Nash. I'll admit it up front: I bought this anthology solely to read this story. The Kate Daniels series is hands down one of the best urban fantasy series today. I was a small disappointed when I realized that Kate (and Curran) wouldn't be front and center in this story, but my disappointment didn't create it past the first page.Of all the stories in this anthology, "Magic Mourns" makes the best use of the hellhound concept using Greek mythology and the most popular hellhound of all: Cerberus. Familiar characters abound here, most notably the werehyena Rafael. He had been pursing Andrea since the previous Kate Daniels book and I loved getting to focus more on that relationship.I also loved how thoroughly and quickly the complex globe of this series and those that inhabit it (Masters of the Dead, The Package etc) were explained and incorporated into the narrative. Longtime fans and fresh readers alike should love this edgy, and deeply magical story. And a BIG thank you to Gordon and Ilona for the beautiful significant reveal regarding Curran at the end. Magic Bleeds (Kate Daniels, book 5) is due May 25, 2010, and for me, the wait just got worse.*"Magic Mourns" is my pick for best story of the anthology*Sexual Content: References to rape. Implied sex.4/5"Angels' Judgment" by Nalini Singh continues her Clan Hunter Series following Angels' Blood. In her Clan Hunter Series, Nalini Singh capitalizes on the two hottest trends in the urban fantasy genre today: vampires and angels. I know I don't normally associate the two, but Nalini makes it ra wasn't used to feeling sorry for vampires. Her job, after all, was to bag, mark and transport them back to their masters, the angels. -Angels' JudgmentIf you're fresh to this series, the globe building here spins traditional angel mythology completely on its head. Forget everything you learned in Sunday school, these angels are lethal beings of unimaginable power as well as the creators (and masters) of vampires. When a vampire tries to buck the system and go AWOL, Clan Hunters are called in to bag & mark them and drag them back to their angelic masters."Angels' Judgment" is a prequel to Angel's Blood and focuses on Elena's best friend, Sara. While on the hunt for a rogue Hunter who has been butchering vampires, Sara squads up with smokin' hot Deacon (aka The Slayer) to stop the assassin and survive the `angel sanctioned tests' long enough to become the fresh Clan Director.I loved the original angels in this globe and the strong, yet still feminine, hero of Sara. I'm not usually a fan of a lot of romance in short stories or novellas simply because there aren't a lot of pages available to develop a love story with any credibility. That being said, I thought the relationship between Sara and Deacon had more substance than most. I especially liked the stage where she `protected' him at the r me, anthologies are a amazing method to test out fresh authors and possibly obtain hooked on their writing style. From there, amazing characters and special globe building will always reel me in, and with "Angels' Judgment," Nalini Singh has caught herself another satisfied ual Content: One brief non-graphic scene, one long semi-graphic scene, a stage takes put in a club without any description.3/5"Blind Spot" by Meljean Brook takes put in the globe of her Guardian Series. Ex CIA operative Maggie Wren (who appeared briefly in Demon Forged) has been working as a `butler' for the vampire Colin Ames-Beaumont (from Demon Moon) when she is sent to rescue his kidnapped niece, Katherine, along with the aid of his nephew, Blake. While not a vampire like his uncle, Blake, though blind, has his own talents that contain being able to see through anyone else's eyes. Given the title of this anthology, I'll give you one guess what kind of breed his seeing eye dog spite having roughly the same amount of pages as the other authors in this anthology, Meljean delivers the best romance of the bunch in "Blind Spot." It drives me nuts in a story when character's stop for `sex breaks' during life or death situations (for example rescuing your sister from her demon kidnapper). Fortunately, while there is a satisfying amount of romantic tension here, both characters have enough self control to place Katherine's life ahead of their own attraction.I really only had one issue with this story. I would imagine that growing up together, Katherine and Blake would have learned the most effective ways of communicating with each other, given their special abilities. And I have to think that sign language would have occurred to someone by now. I mean how hard would it be to look at your own hands and even just spell out a notice alphabetically?This was my first time reading Meljean Brooks and I'm now going to have to add myself to her throngs of fans. Her writing, pacing, characters, and globe are simply delicious. The next Guardian book, Demon Blood is due out July 6, ual Content: References to sex.4/5
I loved every single story!! Who is ever lucky enough to love every story in an anthology?? Every author is fabulous and I was introduced to Charlaine Harris, who I haven't wanted to read because I was afraid I would obtain addicted to her..like I am to Meljean Brook, Nalini Singh and Ilona Andrews...especially Ilona Andrews. If you don't obtain this book in whatever format you can, then you are foolish. :). Don't allow the hellhound reference deter you...these books cover it all and are worth it.
In 'The Britlingens Go To Hell' by Charlaine Harris, you obtain to step into hell location with two bodyguards for hire. Trapped in a cell with huge, fearsome hellhounds as the guards, the two girls have to search a method out. They have to obtain to the one that hired them before something happens to him. After all "the customers word is law".In 'Angel's Judgment' by Nalini Singh, vampire-tracker Sara is soon to be guild-director. But there is a rogue clan member on the loose, and he's killing vampires with no slay order. She has to hook up with 'The Slayer' in to track down the rogue, and save the 'Magic Mourns' by Ilona Andrews, a 3-headed-dog is on the loose from Hades. The head of the hyena guild hasn't even had a possibility to mourn for her lost love. The giant beasty is guarding the corpse that has been stolen, and Raphael and Andrea are trying to retrieve 'Blind Spot' by Meljean Brooks, Maggie is sent on a mission, to save her employers neice and nephew, Blake and Kathereen. Finding Blake was easy, resisting him, will be the hard part. After getting over the shock of him being blind, Maggie and Blake, and a funny hellhound go on the hunt for Kathereen. Maybe after saving her from a demon, they can search a small time to discover the sparks between them, if they survive.While I liked some of these stories better than others, (loved the Nalini Singh story) the anthology as a whole was a fun entertaining read
I liked three of the four stories."The Britlingens Go To Hell" seem to have no reason for the story, just walking around. But what I really didn't like was the inclusion of "her". So unnecessary."Magic Mourns" was the reason I bought the book and it didn't disappointed me. The best of them all."Angels' Judgment" was really amazing too, my second favorite. I'll definitly read more of this author."Blind Spot" was amazing but it didn't allow me wanting more.
I would actually give this book 4 1/2 stars. I can't remember an anthology, by various authors, that I have enjoyed so much. Charlaine Harris starts with The Britlingens Go To Hell. This is a amazing beginning. It is 99.999% paranormal and .001% romance. The story is interesting and tips at possibly more to lini Singh apparently began her Clan Hunter series with this tale or wrote it as a prequel. Either way, Angel's Judgment is wonderful. It is Sara and Deacon's story. They are tracking a killer. In the story, Singh introduces characters that will be central to future ona Andrew's Magic Mourns is good. Andrea and Raphael are trying to retrieve his stepfather's body. In the course of their adventure, their relationship grows. There are ljean Brook ends the anthology with Blind Spot, from her Guardian series. I've never read her series. This novella makes me wish to take a read. Blake and Maggie are searching for his sister. This story shows the beginning of their relationship while they track down the poor guy. Sir Pup is a cutie.Overall, all the stories are good. It is a unbelievable thing to read such amazing offerings from such amazing authors.
" Britlingens" this was the least liked of the 4. Skipped most of it."Angels' Judgement " - the reason I purchased only to search that I had just read it in "Angels' Flight". Oh well onward folks."Magic Mourns" - this one was just plain fun. I live bout 50 miles north of Atlanta so this was a riot to read. After what the invasion of "Magic" did to that city, only thing I can say is, " Maybe they'll quit whining bout Sherman now!" So Cobb Pkwy becomes Buzzard. The Ga Dome becomes The Casino, probably a better use of space. The description of the ravines carved by Magic as termite tunnels was so good. The story was fun too"Bind Spot" - also a lot of fun to read. Mr. Blake, most interesting, but the one I really got a charged out of was Sir Pup. Helluva name for the 3 headed hellhound with an perfect sense of in the end worth my time. ~P~
As most books which are written as a series, there are almost always gaps in timelines or info mentioned in any given novel from a series. It's always nice to obtain the lowdown on these teasers (best method to describe them that I know of). These are amazing stories and can stand alone. In other words, you don't need to have already read the series. Whether you have or have not read the series by any or all ofthese authors, you will have fun each and every one. I found myself introduced to fresh authors and book series due to my reading of this anthology of short stories. I might never have discovered the authors or series if I had not read this anthology called "Must Love Hellhounds". If you have fun them half as much as I did, you are in for a true treat. A must read for any who love the paranormal Granny,"Gran" :}
Nalini Singh "Angel's Judgment" This novella is from Nalini's Clan Hunter series. It follows Sara, the director of the clan before she became director and was a hunter. Sara and the Slayer, Deacon (slayers are Guild's internal police for rogue hunters) hunt down a suspected rogue hunter who has been performing unsanctioned vampire executions. This story was fantastic! It beautiful much had it all; action, suspense, delectable tension, mystery and the storyline was superb! This novella was exhilarating, impressively done and complete. It got me all hyped up to read the next Clan Hunter's novel, Archangel's Kiss due out 2/10/2010. This novella turned out to be my favorite story out of this anthology. 5+/5Ilona Andrews "Magic Mourns" This novella is from the Kate Daniel's series. It focus's on Andrea, Kate's best friend. The story seems to pick up shortly after where Magic Strike's leaves off. I've been waiting on this novella for a long time, after getting just a tease of Andrea and Raphael's budding relationship. They are both hot-headed and at times volatile. Andrea and Raphael hunt down a necromancer who has stolen the dead body of Aunt B's friend (Aunt B is Raphael's mother and also the werehyena alpha), and finally hash out their issues. Unfortunately it's not at an opportune time, since they're being chased by a hellhound. It's so refreshing to see the male and female share the alpha/beta role, as oppose to the usual were story where the female only has value because of her mate's stature. This story was exciting, complete and well done. I also look forward to reading the next book in the Kate Daniels series Magic Bleeds due out 6/2010. 5/5Meljean Brook "Blind Spot" I haven't read Meljean's Guardian series and have been on the fence about it for some time. This novella was simple to follow even though I am not familiar with the series. Maggie, a private body guard and a hellhound named Sir Pup, support Geoff, Maggie's employer's nephew in rescuing Geoff's sister, Katherine who has been kidnapped. After enjoying this novella tremendously, I will definitely be picking up her Guardians series. This story was interesting, exciting and smoothly done. 5/5Charlaine Harris "Britlingens Go to Hell" I've read several short stories by Charlaine and never really have fun her novellas, however, I did search this novella the most enjoyable of the short stories I've read in the past from her. Two body guards are hired to guard a thief through his trip through hell, to steal back one of Lucifer's valuable treasures. This story felt a @#$%!&oppy. The storyline had amazing potential but fell a bit short of feeling complete. 3/5This anthology was a success in my opinion. All stories kept to the hellhound theme and had a fun, humorous feel to them.I also recommend:Angels' BloodMagic Bites (Kate Daniels, Book 1)Blood Engines (Marla Mason, Book 1)Strange BrewUnbound
Amazing read! I was hooked from the start. The suspense wrapped around my heart and squeezed. Jake and Amanda obtain this second possibility and you could feel that connection. I loved the story, really enjoyed the characters and I was on the edge of my seat.I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
This Is Book 3 of the Must Love Danger Series by this author, and can be read as a standalone. It is a steamy, second possibility romance between former lovers, Jake and Amanda. Once they re-connect, it is a journey of self-discovery as these two flawed characters figure out a renewed relationship between them with love and intimacy, along with drama, action, danger, and passion. Overall, it is a page-turner from beginning to end, with engaging secondary characters and a satisfied ending. A amazing addition to the series.I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Emilia and Hawke are long time friends. Now she needs a protector. Someone to hold her safe as she works a critical deadline to save a life. He will be that protector but doesn't think that he deserves more depite his growing feelings for her. Emilia wants more but she's been burned. Dare she risk her heart for this amazing man?Good story, amazing characters, perfect mix of suspense and romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.Hawke is a story about two best mates who explore that, over time, their feelings for each other have gradually become more romantic. As their relationship develops, they must solve a suspense that is risky and deadly.Hawke and Emilia grew up together. However, when Hawk joined the Navy and became a SEAL, he rarely came home. But, Hawke is now retired and has returned home. At that time he plans to reunite with his close friend, Emilia. However, they do not expect how much their relationship will change.Emilia works as a biotechnician in a lab that devotes it time and resources to finding cures for rare pediatric diseases. Currently, she is working on a fresh medicine that has the ability to heal a six-year-old girl who has a life-threatening pediatric blood e lab is nearly finished with the cure when Emilia notices that one of their lab workers has been continuously sabotaging their work. She reports him, and he is fired. After that, Emilia receives threatening texts. Hawke professionally becomes involved in this mystery when Emilia confides in him.I admire Emilia for her courage, strength and diligence. She continues to work on the cure for this disease in spite of constant risky is is an absorbing romantic suspense. Emily Jane Trent skillfully writes a suspense that makes it difficult for the reader to explore who has decided to ruin Emilia’s results. There are a lot of twists and turns as Emilia and Hawke dodge a lot of risky is is the first book I have ever read by Emily Jane Trent, but I definitely plan to read more.
Emilia has found her passion and mission in life, working to cure diseases for children. This is private after losing her sister at a young age to a disease with no cure. She has also always been the friend, never the girlfriend, but her work doesn’t let much time for a private life. As she nears the end of a long street to cure the disease that killed her sister, she finds herself threatened. Someone doesn’t wish her to release the cure she built. Enter a mate from high school, Hawke, who provides protection. A reunion at a friend’s party leads to him offering his services to search out who his threatening her. Can these long-time mates search love? Or will their own doubts and insecurities hold them apart? Emilia’s drive in her career is unbelievable to experience. Her crush on Hawke is fun but I wanted her to have the same confidence she had in her work in herself, that she does deserve someone as awesome as Hawke. Hawke’s willingness to jump in and support a mate is fabulous. These two have an simple connection and naturalness but they frustrated me with their fear of sharing their hearts as they fearlessly faced danger. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
Must Love Danger.... MUST love Hawke and Emilia!!! Emily Jane Trent brings the suspense back into action with Hawke and had me guessing throughout the entire story to the very end! I love how we obtain introduced to the characters that will create up the Must Love Danger series, I enjoyed the banter and the intrigued is definitely there that keeps you wanting more. Emilia is on the verge of a breakthrough medicine that could safe a small girls life when danger starts to lurk and create it well known that someone wants her to stop with progressing with the project. Hawke, finally home from the military is one of the heads of Black Swan Protection that has demons of his own to tackle, but when Emilia is threatened life takes on a whole fresh meaning for the both of them! I enjoyed watching their friendship blossom and grow into an explosive chemistry that is off the charts.

Jake and Amanda have a love-hate relationship as they work together at Black Swann. When a fresh mission that is private for Amanda forces them to pretend to be married, we learn that these two have a romantic past. They both found themselves stationed in the same zone which lead them to a ‘sex’ only hook-up which was awesome for them both. As they work to uncover a baby stealing ring, the feelings they have both been hiding are harder to suppress. They are both very driven by their career and helping others. Will they realize that happiness is within their grasp as well? I read this book using Kindle Unlimited.
Hawke!! What can I say but totally AWESOME!!! Emily is back and writing as awesome as ever. Emilia and Hawke are fantastic. Hawke, a former Navy SEAL, is a HUNK!!! Emilia, is a mate who finds herself with a problem. Together they take you on a unbelievable journey through suspense, romance, and sex. I absolutely LOVE this first book in the series and look forward to the next one about Ryker. Congratulations, Emily Jane Trent so glad you are writing again.
Emily Jane Trent is back with a fresh series that will rock your globe and steal your heart. Jonathan Hawkins Turner "Hawke" and Emilia Draper have been mates since high school even though their lives have taken various courses. Hawke is a retired SEAL who owns a protection company with fellow retired teammates called Black Swan Protection that has helped them all adapt back to civilian life. Emilia has dedicated her life to biotech in pharmaceuticals working on a cure for a rare childhood disease that took her younger sister. As her squads manager it falls on her shoulders to report sabotage to the project resulting in the loss of a squad member. Hawke couldn't have prepared himself more for the sight of seeing Emilia after so long. When danger strikes Hawke is there to protect Emilia but he has to remind himself they are just mates and he couldn't see himself as the man for her with the baggage of his past following him. Emilia has had feelings for Hawke since high school but she wasn't the type of woman he always had hanging on his arm. The fine line between friendship and love is one they dare not to cross but with someone out to obtain Emilia and her project Hawke's protective instincts turn fierce and now there is no turning back. Will Hawke and his squad search the source of danger in time to save not only the woman he loves but the small girl Emilia has fought to search a cure for?? A riveting story filled with action, suspense and love that is meant to be. I also love that Emily shows tribute to the military and all they've given , even touching on the topic and effects of PTSD so a lot of suffer from. My heart goes out to all. Hawke and Emilia's story is a amazing introducing for the Must Love Danger series and I can't wait to see who is next to fall. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and purchased a copy for my favorites collection. Happily waiting for the next book in this amazing series.
This book has everything that you would wish in a amazing read. We have the hunk, Hawke, who considers himself too damaged to love the woman who has been his mate since forever, a woman, Emilia who feels she is not amazing enough for the hunky guy since she was jilted by her fiance, but she is a powerful woman. We have the humanitarian cause to save the life of a kid and the poor guys efforts to thwart Emilia's work at all is is not your typical mates to lover's romance. The story line, stealing someone's work for major profits and the means taken to steal that work is what really got me. I will read this story again. There is no cliffhanger and thankfully we don't have the girl getting pregnant as soon as she gets the guy -- much overworked theme. I will be reading more of Emily Jane Trent's work.“I received an Advance Copy of this book. This review was given voluntarily and is my honest opinion.”
I received a complimentary copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest fore I started this series, I had never read anything by this author. However, I was happily surprised when I read this absorbing romantic suspense.When Amanda Long retired from the Navy, she joined a group called Black Swan. This is a company “staffed with former military in the business of executive protection.”Jake Holland also works for Black Swan. He and Amanda had worked together when they were both still in the military. When their partnership ended, so did their affair.

The action does not end until the latest chapter when we finally explore the answers to the is series is so unbelievable that I am now beginning to read other books by this author.
Very special subject for a romance novel and I loved every single min of it. We've met Jake and Amanda in the previous stories and their relationship has always been a small strained due to their chemistry, but when a case brings them together, neither of them can resist the heat any longer!!!! Fabulous installment and looking forward to more to come!
Quick paced book that covered a lot of ground. I loved Jake. Can I have a clone of him? Alpha male that is also very sensitive. I loved how he was with Amanda and how he came to understand his feelings for her and present her how it could be between them. Amanda honestly got on my nerves in the beginning. She seemed difficult with Jake just to be difficult and I couldn't obtain why and was almost at the point of not caring. But then she came out of her shell a bit and opened up and I understood her. Was glad they got their HEA. The story revolves around an illegal adoption ring and you don't see that premise a lot so it was very interesting. My one and only problem was that Amanda comes to her boss and Jake and tells them her niece was taken and within like 24 hours Jake manages to come up with a suspect. That seemed too far fetched to me. I mean I know stories only have so a lot of pages to cover a lot of ground but these must be super detectives to be able to figure out everything so fast. Other than that this was a really amazing story.
This book hooked me from the obtain go I just couldn’t place it down I fell in love with these characters and omg what a story just a perfectI received a copy of this book via Booksprout for an honest reviewI received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Jake and Amanda have been working together well for years. Though no one knows that they had a private relationship before they joined the company. Amanda sister believes that her newborn daughter was kidnapped. Everyone at Black Swan is willing to do what needs to done to see that her family is once again whole. Jake volunteers to be her fake husband and on top of being professional things obtain a small to close for comfort. The chemistry of their past becomes too irresistible. The true reason why things didn't work out was on Amanda's part but this time Jake takes control and tells her that he loves her. We search the truth about really happened to her niece and who was all behind it. They search that the love and family they were searching for was right there between each other all along.
We are back with the member of Black Swan. A prestigious security company created up of former military men and o members of this group are Amanda Long and Jake Holland. They had a short relationship when they were overseas, one that currently constantly keeps them on each others nerves. But when Amanda’s newborn niece is either stillborn or stolen , and Amanda decides to go undercover, she and Jake unite to search out what really happened. A move that will also stir their was a quick paced story with interesting characters and a amazing addition to the series.I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
This book has both poor and amazing points, but I recommend it overall. I didn't like that the book seemed to begin with a beautiful significant info dump. Given the suspenseful and thriller-type aspects of this book, beginning with the stage of the disgruntled employee probably would have been better, and the author could have dribbled in little bits of backstory as the book went along. I thought some aspects of the sensual scenes were a small cringe-worthy.I actually liked the character and heroine. When they meet at a party after some years of separation, their ease and naturalness seemed very real, as it is when you meet up with an old friend. They're both decent people who’ve had some private and professional issues. I thought, in particular, that the author handled the subject of PTSD with sensitivity and realism. At times, I felt irritated by the couple because they were fearless versus their seen and unseen opponents but lacked courage in their private relationship. The beginning was a small slow, but things ramped up beautiful quickly after the meet-cute. The author kept up the suspense well through the story. All in all, I thought this was a amazing contemporary romantic suspense story with characters whom you could root for, both in terms of the romance and the suspense plot.I received a copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
As soon as I heard about this fresh book by John Perkins, I knew I wanted to read it. I was not disappointed as he shared about his activities through the years and his dreams for the future. As he wrote about reconciliation in the real sense of the word, my heart responded. He stated that reconciliation is not about race but about being fully reconciled to God. As we seek to reconcile with God and let the Holy Spirit to work in and through us, we are reconciled with His people, the human race. So a lot of who speak of racial reconciliation, justice, equality, and so on are so mad and vehement in their approach that they push others away, just as a lot of who declare that we already have equality, etc. hold enlarging the divide. John Perkins has more reason, humanly speaking, to be mad and vindictive than a lot of in the forefront of the news but he is neither. He is a man who is devoted to living his life for Christ while seeking love and justice for all. Although his perception of happenings may not be the same as mine or yours and may sound related to what we hear in the media, the solutions he are quite divergent as he seeks to allow God direct his ways rather than giving in to anger and hatred. The book is well worth the time to read and digest in to gain a perspective based on a lifetime of seeing firsthand what a lot of of us have only seen on TV as it was presented by those who are driven by their ratings more than by a desire to spread truth. I encourage you to read the book and let God to speak to your heart.

We all have things we want to accomplish, but are not sure how to go about making them happen. Well, those days are over. With this book, I was able to quickly set goals and deadlines. Then, I focused on what I can accomplish in a day and break down those tasks. Finally, I decided to quit putting the things off to tomorrow what could be done today. This book has revolutionized the method I view time and I am can say that I am much better off now!
After being excited to obtain this book I am really struggling to stay with it. It began well and was a page turner. Then on page 87 it turned a direction I’m unable to follow and holds no interest for me. The fact that I’m American also makes it difficult to follow. I doubt that I’ll obtain through his one. Disappointed.
I never thought this android game would be so interesting. Loved everything about it, especially the smooth gameplay, swift movements of the player makes me play more and more. Melody is dope, I would like you to add more guns, abilities and characters. Fabulous job by your team. 👏
I first thought that it would be just an ordinary android games like others in this size but when I installed it and played it my mind just changed,I know this android game doesn't have much graphics but graphics doesn't matter all the time,gameplay matters.I just became a fan of the Rebel Twins,slow-motions,jump and everything else are just great.I liked it very ank you Rebel Twins for this game.
All hail the 🍪 destroyer! Man what an awesome thought, assassin cookies taking over the globe. The video test is easy & it's more like an cheat & cut style game. Loved the SFX, they have done a amazing job with the audio. There is still room for improvement hence the 4 🌟 s
Im one of those people who find and find until they search a android game worfhy of putting some time on, i have to say this android game is great! Easy video test yet thrilling mechanics and amazing music. You have my thumbs up for this one! I only want we could choose which level to play rather than being forced to begin from scrach after each death
A amazing game.. fresh concept.. instead of js arrows and jump keys and firing buttons this android game has a fresh gameplay. But all the things in this android game are so little so hard to see.. but overall a amazing time pass android game which makes you feel like a action film war in slow mo..
Amazing game. Amazing video test and original concept. Can hold you busy for hours. Only complaints are that there should be a guide or explanation on using the various abilities(power ups) when each is unlocked. Lastly, we should be able to replay previous chapters once they are passed so we can test to beat our scores with upgraded guns and abilities and/or maybe have 3 difficulty levels for each chapter to unlock. Would definitely add depth to the android game and would hold players interested longer
Android game is amazing but needs control options. The flinging mechanics are great, but I search it counterintuitive to swipe towards the directions I wish to face. It feels much more natural to have the opposite. Will definitely give 5 stars if this easy "inverted controls" option is introduced.
When I began reading "Dorothy Must Die," the prose was so stunning that I may have allow out a small squeal of excitement. I knew I was about to be transported someplace magical and couldn’t wait to dig in. The bleak circumstances into which we enter this globe mirrors the black and white setting at the opening of MGM’s “The Wizard of Oz.” Everything is harsh and dusty in protagonist Amy Gumm’s world. She lives in a trailer in the city of Dusty Acres. Her mother is addicted to prescription drugs. Her dad left years before to begin a fresh family. Amy is abused by mean girls at school and bears the nickname “Trailer Trash.” We root for Amy because despite all the adversity, she keeps her sense of humor, integrity, and e Oz in "Dorothy Must Die" is far grimmer and more risky than the original. Author Danielle Paige writes fearlessly. You never know who is safe. The characters are unforgettable. Answering the question “what would happen if Dorothy was evil?” Paige flips “The Wizard of Oz” upside-down. And like a tornado, you will be uprooted, hurled, and tossed through the brilliant narrative.
Le doy a este libro 3.5*El libro sigue la historia de Amy Gumm, una chica de Kansas que luego de un tornado se ve transportada hasta Oz, les suena familiar? Si, es lo mismo que le pasó a Dorothy en la historia origianl, solo que esta vez es lo que pasó luego de que Dorothy usó sus zapatos para volver a y se encuentra con un Oz muy diferente al que leyó en los libros, donde los buenos se volvieron malos y los malos buenos, y descubre que ella es la elegida para salvar a Oz y que todo vuelva a la normalidad. Amy junto con una orden revolucionaria de magos y brujas deberá aprender a defenderse, a usar magia, y a involucrarse en una red corrupta de personajes movidos por la violencia para poder salvar a historia me pareció bastante original, si bien está basado en la historia del mago de Oz, la vuelta que le dieron a los personajes y como crearon un nuevo mundo mágico esta muy bien pensado. Me gustó el desarrollo de los personajes, y si bien la trama del elegido es bastante cliché, me gusto mucho en este libro.El libro es parte de una serie por lo cuál si se sintió un poco introductorio, y en general, si bien está lleno de acción, hay partes que no me gustaron demasiado. En principio hay mucha violencia en la vida de Amy, vive en un trailer con una madre adicta a las pildoras que no le presta atención, es una constante víctima de bulling en el colegio, y no cuenta con nadie que sea un soporte, y cuando viaja a Oz esto tampoco cambia demasiado, y se encuentra con personajes que matan y torturan por placer, y su propio entrenamiento para aprender a usar magia tampoco es muy ameno, a pesar que le sirva para encontrar fuerza dentro de si y superar sus inseguridades.En resumen, Dorothy debe morir es un libro con una trama entretenida, no demasiado denso para leer y con personajes bien escritos, aunque esperen version bastantes escenas violentas en sus páginas, creo que voy a continuar leyendo esta saga.
I recently purchased this and listened to it for the first time. Aside from Phil Spector's crowded "wall of sound" production, I was astonished. The songs are every bit as amazing as those place out by the Lennon/McCartney squad that everyone loved so much during the Beatles' heyday. The production unfortunately dates the recording and takes away from the gorgeous melodies and arrangements that create up these songs. It's a travesty that these were leftovers from when George was in the Beatles. Lennon/McCartney and George Martin were probably not into the whole spiritual vibe that George place into these songs and therefore blocked him from including them in Beatles' albums.I think that George had come well into his own eons before he was given credit. If you listen carefully you can hear some of the detail that he place into the other two's compositions from listening to these songs. The cord changes, simple, direct and attractive melodies are all here. He has often been credited with being the creator of the "Beatles Sound" as their musical director. His lyrics are a small too easy sometimes, but that's what he was about. About living your life simply and uncluttered. The notice in this is so much deeper than the pseudo-mysticism that he place into WITHIN YOU WITHOUT you or his other Beatles songs dealing with spirituality. I just love this album. George was truly an old soul with a heart of gold. He could've fleshed out the remainder of the underdeveloped "White Album" if some of these unbelievable gems were added. All of the songs are highlights and most of them range from perfect to outright classics. It's only fitting that he enjoyed the amount of success that he did with this album. John and Paul should've been ashamed to take advantage of George's passive, loving personality to deny him the recognition that he deserved while still in the Beatles.
