Meh. Didn't live up to Year One

Positive: Julia Whalen, as always was brilliant.

The Story: It wasn't terrible but for how high stakes Year One was - this fell pretty flat with too many cliches and overworm troupes. I've read/listened to almost everything NR has written so know to expect certain things and generally enjoy them, but they just didn't seem to fit in with the original world she built.

Both this and the second book were missing what made Year One really special and amazing. I can't say more of why this was so Meh without spoilers .. but Meh.

performance was great, but the story doesn't age well and the women are mostly all annoying or just really basic.

The story lacked real depth.

Nora Robert's is getting a little lazier with her books.

The villains didn't make any sense and didn't feel real and I accurately predicted 95% of the story after chapter 4.

The beginning was amazing and had my heart in my throat but the rest .. just missed the mark.

I really hope the third book in the chronicles of the One has more care taken with it.

If you like child sex - this one is for you

The way females are portrayed in this is disgusting, especially considering they are children .. aged 13 and 14. There was no reason plot wise what so ever that they couldn't age the girls to women. Literally there would be no difference plot wise.

There were lots of interesting things in this book, but we really need to stop letting books like this that portray young girls as nothing more than breeders become best sellers. For history books or trying to describe true stories.. that's fine but there is no reason we need to make ish like this so popular.

Thumbs down.

Jon's interview skills are intense. I can't imagine asking all those hard questions. My condolances to her loved ones. Hopefully some things in the industry can change so that these stories are a thing of the past.

Have listened to this one about 6 times now

Really enjoy the characters, the intrigue and overall fun of this story. NR needs to keep her secondary characters ar the very least the level they are in this book to continue to do good writing.
