    1. A First Reads won book!Full disclosure: when I saw the flying seal on the back of the book, I was prepared not to like. But I did end up liking it better than I thought I would, even though it's really not my cup of fantasy/sci fi tea. The world itself was pretty good, but the characters were so one dimensional, and I thought the dialogue was terrrrribbbllleee (especially the flirting). Plus the cousin? NO ONE WOULD PUT UP WITH THAT SHIT, "BLUSTER" OR NO. That girl needed like 17 slaps.

    2. This book was so fantastic that I didn't want it to end! First off the artwork of this series is phenomenal. The writing is wonderful, the characters are unique, and the action was so fast paced in this one that I felt myself pulled into the story even more so than the last two! Great book, great author, not much more to say I'm looking forward to the next one.

    3. I apologize for such a late review Again another wonderfully crafted book by Ren. As I have stressed before if you love multi layered complex worlds and character relations in an energizing storyline these books are calling your name. Ren develops his characters at such a high level that they easily and seamlessly grow up, have lives and their children become focal characters. This is art.

    4. This book series has a very detailed world. That was the first impress I got from the reading.I felt like the first book was mostly exposition. While only halfway through, I didn't think that I would normally bother to seek out the next two novels in the series. It wasn't until the end that the story really began to develop and pull my interest. It definitely ends on a cliff hanger.I am interested in several elements of this story universe. There are moments when I feel like it has a steampunk t [...]

    5. ***I was lucky to win a copy of this book through the GoodReads Advance program.***One thing that I like about science fiction/fantasy is that the only limits are the authors' imagination. This book is no exception: it is different from what I've read so far, and I really like it. This is the first book in the "The Temple of the Exploding Head" trilogy, but it is the third book in "The League Of Elder" series. The story is centered on Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort since he was born until he was 22. [...]

    6. I love a series where you get to see the original characters grow up and their children take over as the main characters, which is exactly what happens in this new saga. The children are just as believable and loveable as their parents (with the exception of one VERY annoying particular cousin!). Although they're not flying around in space and having epic battles like their parents, the characters of this series get themselves in an exciting adventure, nonetheless.Kay, son of Davage and Syg, fal [...]

    7. The best so far of the three, I really love the way this story taps into the characters’ desires and doubts in the face of the challenges their current lives and ancestry presents to them. There are status issues, the concept of living up to unfair expectations that others may hold for you and the main theme of trusting in love at the risk of self-sacrifice if that love fails you. The culture of the Monamas is definitely one of Mr. Garcia’s most spectacular and detailed creations, making thi [...]

    8. Kay held up Sam's fur. "Youyou forgot your fur, and your coat, and I want to give them back. And, in any eventI miss you, Sam. How can I tell you such a thing without sounding like a total fool? I'll just lay it out. The day we started talking, I was going to kill myself. The only reason I'm alive is because of the promise I made to you. I can't even look at the posts without thinking of you. I can't enjoy anything without you. Are you happy? Here, how about if I say it like this: Enier ane mira [...]
