Today I've decided on an author review of Karen Marie Moning. (awesome!)
I've been reading Ms. Moning from the beginning. She started with historical (time travelish) romance. She loves her highlanders and so do we
She had a bit of trouble for about 1/2 a minute when her Fae series came out and people realized it wasn't a HEA (happy ever after) type of series and that it was more urban fantasy.
When you read her books you can see the progression / evolution of her writing. At first she wrote great steamy romances with strong heroines and alpha heroes. But now her books grab you by the throat and don't let go. Her world building is such that you see the world through her eyes.
Call me weird but I'm the type of reader who when I like an author I tend to fall into the story so much that I get emotionally involved with the characters. Sometimes to the point where I have to walk away from the book for a bit .It just gets to much. Well with Ms. Moning, it's every single on of her Fae books. I've had to put every single of of them down, sometimes 1/2 way through, this time with her newest Iced I had to put it down not even 1/4 of the way through. Ridiculous I know but she brings these people to life for me.
Hopefully most of our reviews won't be so long winded (odds are they will be though ) Until next time
