The Slayer E–pub Free
I received this book through goodreads first readsAnd I absolutely oved it A big thanks to my girlfriend Jillyn who spotted it for me 3 I was captivated by the writing and the story and I realize I was a fool for taking so All That Glitters (Alchemys Heirs long to finish it Despite not having the pleasure of reading the first book I felt in no wayost to the continuing story Theresa did a fantastic job of connecting the major plots in the first book to the second The story is fantastic and has brought me to appreciate and admire the Steampunk genre I ve been fascinated with it since I African American English: A Linguistic Introduction learned of it and this has opened me up to it so much And as an avid supporter of star crossedovers the pairing of Slayer Winchester Jackson and the vampire Contessa Drossenburg was a beautiful match Not only do they have an untameable attraction to each other but they are human and vampire both hunt the other for survival and not to mention the Lady Drossenburg is of Noble birth and Winchester a mere American Great Short Stories by African-American Writers law man But they are forced to work side by side to save the world from the sadistic archdemon Rathe who wants to bring in his new world orderI ve grown attached to these characters to Winn most of all and on an emotionalevel He is everything I am and wish to be Drunk On Chocolate loyal to a fault protective strong knowing his place in the world and accepting the fact he can t change it He is a passionate person and it is clear he would do anything for his brothers and theove of his Major Problems in African-American History: From Freedom to Freedom Now, 1865-1990s (Major Problems in American History Series) life he has made meaugh with him smile with him scream in anger and frustration with him and even cry with him He is a powerful character and Theresa is a powerful writer for allowing me to connect so well That being said I am cursing the fact that I do not yet have the third book because I want to know what happens I was content not having read the first though I would Academia like to I know it s going to be as good as the second but I am just itching to get my hands on the third one It sike Harry Potter all over again Must Read MoreAll in all this was a great book The writing was beautiful and inspirational I A Beginner's Guide to Immortality: From Alchemy to Avatars loved it I highly recommend it to those whoove vampires adventure suspense romance and Love on the Rocks Men Women and Alcohol in Post World War II America love that prevails and over comes all odds Happy reading everyone My Rating 35 stars Liked it recommend BYou have toove a book that starts out in the middle of a stage coach robbery Taunting and name calling Beths Stable Stolen by an Alien leads to four guns cocked and aimed at our hero Winchester Jackson And then all hell breaksoose when the an enchanting contessa climbs off the coach and proceeds to slaughter the entire gang of outlaws The Slayer starts off with a bang and rarely slows down The Slayer is the second book in the Legend Chronicles trilogy overlapping in content and time with the first book The Hunter Although you need not have read the first book in the series to enjoy The Slayer a bit of background is helpful The books are set in a steampunked version of the wild west where it has been prophesied that the Jackson brothers are the Chosen who will bring together the three pieces of the Aliens Vs Predator lost Book of Legend and defeat the evil demonord RatheThis book follows the adventures of Winn the eldest of the Jackson brothers each trained as a Hunter defenders of humans against the Darkin and each with a bit of a chip on his shoulder Winn has given up tracking down and hunting the paranormal and supernatural beings that roam the earth but when the Contessa Alexa Drossenburg a vampire asks him for help he finds it hard to say no Winn finds that the pull of being a Hunter is too strong and agrees to help the vampires recover a piece of the Book of Legend and brother Colt telling him to do so helps influence the decisionI very much enjoyed The Slayer even a bit than the first book there was For Discrimination less detailed world building and of an organic growth to the mythology and story The action and tempo which was fast paced during the action scenes but a bit slower during the inter personal time was entertainingThe romance between Winn and Alexa aka Tessa was slow but smoldering I felt the pace of their courtship was fitting as they took the time toearn about each other They are natural enemies each having to earn to accept the other and that preconceived notions aren t always true Their mutual "ATTRACTION IS POWERFUL AND WHILE NEITHER DENY THEIR ATTRACTION "is powerful and while neither deny their attraction the other they each hope to keep it in check They never forget who they are but see uniueness in the other how the other is different from any DarkinHunter they ve met before And although it takes all book for them to finally consummate their relationship the story is filled with sexy glances simmering touches and smokin kisses This is one of the wonderfully vivid examplesAs she walked by the tantalizing scent of sweet female filled his nose and the satin of her dress made the sounds of sheets moving on a bedI did feel that there were some inconsistencies with the Darkin and powers during the course of the story For example Tessa has the ability to dematerialize and reappear in another ocation Yet in the middle of the story there were a few times where she unnecessarily put herself at great risk by physically jumping from one place to another In addition I felt that the time pressure Winn and Tessa kept placing on themselves Winn was counting off minutes as time slips away yet they have a couple of weeks to get the job done was a bit dramatic While these things aren t deal breakers it did bother me enough that I made note of it a few times while reading I also wanted fromwith Rathe the bad guy His presence was of an assumed one until the very end I hope he has a bigger role in the final story In addition I am ooking forward to seeing how some of the open ended pieces conclude especially those involving inventor friend Marley Overall The Slayer is a delightful story I oved that especially those involving inventor friend Marley Overall The Slayer is a delightful story I Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic loved that fed directly fromast book The flow of the story was mostly spot on and even when it did get a African Literature 9 little slow it wasn t repetitive I am most certainlyooking forward to the next story The Chosen March 2013 to see how it will all wrap up Book Two in the Legend
