Product Description
Three sisters ridding the Otherworld of evil-one monster at a time.

We're the D'Artigo sisters: sexy, savvy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. But being half-human, half-Fae means our supernatural talents can go haywire at any time. My sister Camille is a wicked good witch whose life recently took a drastic turn. Menolly's a vampire who's still getting the hang of being undead. And me? I'm Delilah, a werecat with a very interesting love life. But life isn't all fun and games. We're on the trail of the demon general who has decided that we've become quite a nuisance...

It's Samhain, and the Autumn Lord has called for my training to begin with the Death Maidens...and I find that I like it. But we've got problems: werewolves are going missing and a new magical drug, "Wolf Briar," is being used as a weapon. My dear Chase and I have come to a delicate crossroads. And most dangerous of all: Stacia Bonecrusher has put a bounty on our heads. Now it's a race to take out the demon general before she realizes the sixth Spirit Seal is within her reach... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Delilah really steps up
When Luke asks Delilah to help find his missing werewolf sister, she of course agrees. The sister is very pregnant and her ex-husband is suspect number one. However, when Delilah and her sisters start to investigate, they quickly realize things are more dangerous than they thought. Someone is creating and using a nasty drug called Wolf Briar. As if things weren't crazy enough, Stacia Bonecrusher continues to stay just one step ahead of them, and it's only a matter of time before she comes crashing at their door. It will take all of them to make it out of this mess alive and on top. Failure is not an option, for they are the front line force of the war against Shadow Wing and without them there may just not be any hope.

Before reading this book I would have have no hesitation in saying Camille's perspective was my favorite to read hands down. Now, however, they are neck and neck. Delilah made some major strides in this book. She grew so much it was absolutely amazing. Gone is the naive tabby cat who is content to take the sidelines and believe the world is all roses. She is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with as she truly accepts her role as a death maiden. It looks like she has a very full future ahead of her, but I have complete confidence in her ability to flourish in her new roles in life. I don't see Menolly and Camille treating her as if she were the baby sister anymore, she truly has become a woman in her own right.

I'll have to admit when I first started the series a long time ago I was very gun shy about the rotating perspectives. However, after reading the books, I really believe the changes in narrators adds so much more than if they all had been one perspective. Even though the sisters are bound so tightly together, the are also completely unique, and each have their own struggles to deal with. Harvest Hunting not only shows their strength together, but also really hits home just how different each of them are. Each one's unique abilities come together with the others to form one heck of an unstoppable force that will crush every obstacle in their path to protect the ones that they love.

I absolutely love this series, and this book was no exception. The girls are still going strong in their quest against Shadow Wing. Well, they are still holding the front of the lines better than could possibly have been expected. Their brood of men somehow continues to not only tolerate each other, but actually seem to be forming bonds as well. Typically that many men would be a recipe for disaster, but somehow the girls are able to keep a good leash on them, even as more are added. Harvest Hunting is definitely one of those books that you will devour in one setting and already be impatient for the next. Fans of the series will not be disappointed. Two thumbs way up!

1-0 out of 5 stars the WORST book I have EVER read!!!
This book is written so poorly I barely made it thru 30-odd pages.

A 7th-grade-writer could have done this better

Agreed I'm just a consumer but this was horrible

5-0 out of 5 stars another winning entry in this strong epic
Middle sister Delilah D'Artigo knows her natural instinct is flight not fight though she finds it ironic that she prefers to avoid a brawl as she is a shapeshifting were-cat and were-panther.Still she has been in many battles of late (see Bone Magic) as she knows sometimes you must wear the rubber underwear and stand up and fight as she has in her effort to prevent the evil demon General Shadow Wing from victorious domination.

She recently found out that she is to be a Death Maiden loyal to the Autumn Lord.Her training in her new responsibility has begun with the group's leader Greta as her mentor, but she continues her fight against Shadow Wing.Additionally, Delilah is concerned with what is happening to her former once human boyfriend Faerie-Human Crime Scene Investigation Team Director Chase Johnson at a time when a lethal magical drug Wolf Briar is spreading while the were-population vanishes.

The latest super D'Artigo Otherworld fantasy focuses on Delilah with her siblings Menolly the rookie vampire and Camille the goody wicked witch in support roles.The story line is fast-paced as once again all hell has broken loose on earth as this time the demon tired of the three Otherworld Intelligence Agency siblings intruding on his domination plans attacks and the drug epidemic turning pandemic.Yasmine Galenorn provides another winning entry in this strong epic as she continues to rotate the lead yet the support remains solid opening with Camille the polygamist marrying her third otherworldly spouse.

Product Description
A raucous, truth-telling look at the white working poor-and why they hate liberalism.

Deer Hunting with Jesus is web columnist Joe Bageant’s report on what he learned when he moved back to his hometown of Winchester, Virginia, which-like countless American small towns-is fast becoming the bedrock of a permanent underclass. By turns brutal, tender, incendiary, and seriously funny, this book is a call to arms for fellow progressives with little real understanding of "the great beery, NASCAR-loving, church-going, gun-owning America that has never set foot in a Starbucks." ...

great book in great condition but it took forever to arrive, if i had known it would take 3 weeks to get i would have bought it at the local book store since i needed it for school.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rednecks and Progressives
Joe Bageant has the best ear for southern language and class since William Faulkner or maybe even Mark Twain.He describes himself as a "progressive" but nails the utterly clueless progressive mindset, especially with respect to guns.
If progressives expect to win an election against demagogue spokes-puppets like Sarah Palin they might do well to read "Deer Hunting with Jesus" several times. Maybe out loud in a group, each taking a part like a movie script. Otherwise these people will continue to vote for endless war abroad and impoverished police state slavery at home. Suggestions for progressives: hands off our guns, food, cars, schools, and our money.Protect our border, not Iraq, Europe, and Japan. Bail out poor people with cancer and diabetes before bankers and big business.

5-0 out of 5 stars Telling it like it is
Joe Bageant has an eye that sees through the corporate and political smokescreen that was intended to conceal the looting of America.He also has the guts to speak the truth in a blunt, down-to-earth fashion.You know exactly where he stands on the issues- and gives you good reason to stand with him.
He's the kind of person the Establishment wishes would just go away.Fortunately for us, he won't shut up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read
This man helps people like me understand how the friends and loved ones who were once rational if not very educated turned into gun stockpiling crazies and destroyed my country. It helps me to see why I hear them shouting in the streets that no one will force health care upon them yet the very next minute ask me for money to help so and so's child who is dying of cancer..car accident etc...because they don't have health insurance. And he even made me laugh while shaking my fist in frustration. Thank you :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Required Reading
The goal of social science can be simply stated: to understand the social world we live in. The ethical imperative behind all critical scholarly work is equally straightforward: If we know, we must act. Each generation produces seers, fools, and ideologues who compete for turf. The Vietnam Generation has given us a seer. His work should be studied by all concerned with contemporary America. If you teach sociology, anthropology, political science, or economics, assign this book in the suitable courses. It's a fascinating read, and you can intergate what Bageant has done with the tools of your discipline. Clear thinking about American society is always welcome.

Sometimes, however, it takes an outsider to shock the academy into remembering its prime purpose: to bring us out of Plato's cave. Bageant is not a social scientist but uses a time honored method to make the social world understandable: participation (social interaction), observation, and reflection. Upon returning to his hometown in rural Virginia, after over 30 years of absence, he reflects on his working class roots. Each essay offers insights into the American scene which unfold while dining in a local restaurant, drinking in a local bar, and walking childhood's streets. His literary style and the power of his writing have been blurbed by notables(among them Howard Zinn and Studs Terkel--sufficient reason, to my mind at least, to pay serious attention) but I am interested in the sociology which, although not billed as such, comes through in a crisp manner on almost every page.

This is not conventional sociological analysis, however, it offers a more vital and rare texture of lived lives. Working class lives. Ignored lives. Marginalized lives. Expendable lives. Broken Lives. White lives. Fundamentalist Christian livesthat have been chewed up and disposed of by the economy (American Serfs), have had their fears and pride manipulated (Republicans by Default), fall victims to predatory marketing practices (The Deep-Fried, Double Wide Lifestyle),who cling to their guns as symbols of self-worth and tradition (Valley of the Gun), are manipulated by the policio-religious right and kept ignorant by failing schools and limited opportunities (The Covert Kingdom). These folks are the 75% of us who never went beyond high school.

They survive indignities: having their daughters scapegoated for the military incompetence of commanders (The Ballad of Lynddie England); are abused by the American health care system (An Authorized Place to Die) and are kept ignorant by a system that essentially provides only mediated images that serve a narcotizing function (American Halogram).

Bageant is also one of the few to get the 1960s right: "There was electricity in the air". The outlines of the changing social landscape are well documented in social science, but never before with such a human face. Stratification theorists draw lines between groups based on wealth, status, and power but, since social class in America is invisible, an amazing twin alchemy is possible: 1) accidents of birth are seen as choices 2) those less favored come to see themselves as personally responsible for a system that exploits them. Thus, those groups most brutalized by social inequality become it'sstaunchest defenders--a fact not ignored by ideological operatives.

Because of this fact I disagree that the liberals in the middle class who sold out to the system will somehow change because they are the prime beneficiaries of social inequality. After all, when taste, education, and lifestyle become commoditized that requires a reference point for relative evaluation. "Other": the idea of a gun totin', ignorant, bible readin', white trash, violent, drunkard to insure that all political eyes are kept off of the elites. So, the manager at McDonald's "earns" the right to control the lives of the part time workers and those who own 20,000 shares of McDonald's needn't even get involved. An elegant solution: young workers are easily hired, fired, and remain invisible, older workers there are simply underpaid, the manager can aspire to owning the franchise, we get cheap junk food, and the large shareholders drink fine wine and debate the finer points of conspicuous ceremonial consumption at a five star restaurant.

4-0 out of 5 stars Teddy Roosevelt Believed in 'Big Foot'
T.R. Believed in 'Big Foot'
Note the accurate, old-fashioned spelling of the giant bears that once roamed all over North America. Teddy Roosevelt's prose actually kept my interest as did many of his fascinating tales of hunting out West. He did get repetitious in spots, still, his perspective of turn of the century plains and mountain hunting stories left me wanting to find out more. At some points his stories seem to stretch the good bounds of reason--like fishers hunting grizzly cubs?--maybe after they're first born but it seems unlikely after cubs reach a couple months of life. Great tales of buffalo herds with great details on different types of bison and how old timers distinguished them. Roosevelt seemed to live an action-packed life unlike current politicians. He also had great advice that would do us well in our war against terrorism.

A the end of TR's stories, the very last tale, describes what can only be called an encounter with Big Foot by two mountain trappers--one who dies at Big Foot's hands. It describes perfectly (except for the ending death) an incident that me, my brother, and my brother-in-law experienced when we camped out at Lake Creek in preparation for climbing La Plata peak. The spooky nocturnal enounters with the mysterious beast duplicated what we experienced at camp.Some say Big Foot still roams the back woods of Colorado so its nice to know that a former president gave credence to the legend.

5-0 out of 5 stars great book ^_^
was in great condition arrived quickly

great plot very enjoyable, everything i expect from reading Mrs.Briggs books

5-0 out of 5 stars Keeps getting better
Charles Cornick is the enforcer for his father's werewolf pack. He's responsible for hunting down and killing any renegade wolves who aren't following pack rules. He's ruthless and very good at his job. This is a hard life and has made Charles seem cold and distant to most others.

Anna Latham Cornick knows the other side of Charles, as she's his mate. She was turned into a werewolf against her will and brutalized by her pack for years. She's slowly adjusting to her new role as Charles's wife and her role as Omega. As an Omega she's able to calm the emotions of other wolves and is considered an asset to the pack.

Charles's father Bran is the leader of all the North American packs and he's decided that it's time the werewolves reveal themselves to humans. Not everyone is on board with this decision. He sends Anna and Charles to meet with a delegation of alpha wolves from Europe to discuss the implications this will have for the wolves. While there Anna is attacked by a group of vampires that seem to be wielding pack magic. Now Charles and Anna must find out if the attack was personal or a warning to Bran.

Hunting Ground is the second book in the Alpha and Omega series. It continues to build on the relationship between Anna and Charles while furthering the storyline of revealing the pack to humans. Although they are mates, Anna is still wary because of the traumatization she suffered with her old pack. Charles makes a great hero because he's so understanding of Anna's situation. I love the way their relationship is developing slowly throughout the books as they learn about each other. Anna is really starting to grow as an omega wolf becoming more confident with her abilities. We also get to see a softer side of Charles as he takes care of Anna even if it means denying his need to protect her.

Ms. Briggs does a great job of blending urban fantasy, romance and mystery in this book. The action is non-stop and there are several twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. Even though the book is about werewolves, fae and vampires, the way it's written made it feel as if it could be real. The characters are fleshed out and the world building is done in a very believable way. There are also a lot of new characters introduced in this book, and I'm hoping that we'll get to learn more about them as this series evolves. Overall this was a great read and I can't wait for future installments!

4-0 out of 5 stars still going strong
So many reviews already, mostly just want to add my rating to the overall score.

This was a good sequel to the first in the series.The mystery had me guessing till the end.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cannot put it down
Don't start this book unless you have plenty of time to finish it and time enough to get back the sleep you missed because you cannot put the book down.
With lots of action, suspense, and love, you will want to keep this in you library.

Patricia Briggs has done it again with a great new series. I have gotten 4 more people hooked on these books.Keep on writing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good
This was a good book. Not as great the first but still good.Read and written well.The story line was different but flowed well and tied all the characters together; while building to a nice max. The book also tied in different folklore which was fun. The ending was cute wish there was more. I didn't really feel like it ended... I was expecting something else. Hopefully there will be a book three. Pick it up. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book !!!
I have been deer hunting for 10 years, but my luck at finding deer was much like a crap shoot.I wanted a book that could really teach me the basics as if I was brand new to the sport - THIS BOOK DOES THAT.It is an excellent primer for learning the "how's" and "why's" to deer hunting. In short, little tibits, the author covers scouting tactics, deer's preferences regarding: food sources, cover, terrain, bedding, travel routes, vegetation edges, sanctuaries, weather patterns, etc... I found alot of valuable information.When I think back to the times I saw deer in a specific spot (but didn't know why) I NOW have the answers of why the deer were there. For the price, you can't beat it.It's a bargain - jammed with alot of information!!! If you follow half of the information in this book - your odds of bagging a deer should double or triple.

I purchased this for my 12 year old son and his father was jealous. He said he wished he had a book to review about hunting when he was 12! Sounds like I made a good purchase.

Product Description

When the Allies stormed Berlin in 1945, Adolf Eichmann, the operational manager of the Final Solution, shed his SS uniform and vanished. Bringing him to justice would require a harrowing fifteen-year chase stretching from war-ravaged Europe to the shores of Argentina. Hunting Eichmann follows the Nazi as he escapes two American POW camps, hides out in the mountains, slips out of Europe on the ratlines, and builds an anonymous life in Buenos Aires.

Meanwhile, concentration camp survivor Simon Wiesenthal’s persistent search for the monster gradually evolves into an international manhunt that involves the Mossad, whose operatives have their own scores to settle. Presented in a pulse-pounding, hour-by-hour account, the capture of Eichmann and efforts by Israeli agents to smuggle him out of Argentina to stand trial bring the narrative to a stunning conclusion. Based on groundbreaking new information and interviews, recently declassified documents, and meticulous research, Hunting Eichmann is an authoritative, finely nuanced history that offers the intrigue of a detective story and the thrill of great spy fiction.

Product Description
The first complete narrative of the pursuit and capture of Adolf Eichmann, based on groundbreaking new information and interviews and featuring rare, never-published Mossad surveillance photographs. When the Allies stormed Berlin in the last days of the Third Reich, the operational manager of the mass murder of Europe's Jews shed his SS uniform and vanished.

Bringing Adolf Eichmann to justice would require a harrowing fifteen-year chase stretching from war-ravaged Europe to the shores of Argentina.

Alternating from a criminal on the run to his pursuers closing in on his trail, Hunting Eichmann follows the Nazi as he escapes two American POW camps, hides in the mountains, slips out of Europe on the ratlines, and builds an anonymous life in Buenos Aires. Meanwhile, a persistent search for Eichmann gradually evolves into an international manhunt that includes a bulldog West German prosecutor, a blind Argentinean Jew and his beautiful daughter, and a budding, ragtag spy agency called the Mossad, whose operatives have their own scores to settle. Presented in a pulse-pounding, hour-by-hour account, the capture of Eichmann and the efforts by Israeli agents to secret him out of Argentina and fly him to Israel to stand trial bring the narrative to a stunning conclusion.

Hunting Eichmann is a fully documented, finely nuanced history that offers the intrigue of a detective story and the thrill of great spy fiction.

A Q&A with Neal Bascomb, Author of Hunting Eichmann

Q: What brought you to write Hunting Eichmann?

A: During my research, people asked me this countless times, and usually they prefaced it with the question of whether or not I was Jewish. When I answered the Jewish question in the negative, the overwhelming response was "Good, then you'll be seen as objective."

About why I wrote the book: that answer is connected to the first one. You do not have to be Jewish to understand the incredible significance of the operation to catch Eichmann. Without it, our knowledge and perception of the Holocaust would be much more limited. Before the Eichmann trial, the Nazi atrocities were largely being swept under the rug, not spoken about.

Only after the capture was there an extensive reexamination of the genocide; only then did it become rooted in our collective consciousness. In this respect, the operation is one of the most important, influential spy missions in history, period. Beyond a documentary over a decade ago, it has been almost fifty years since a journalist has taken a thorough look at what unfolded.

Q: How did you find Eichmann's passport?

A: Definitely one of the highlights of my research, because the document is tangible proof of how Eichmann escaped Europe. In late 2006, I was looking through old Buenos Aires newspapers when I came across a story about a lawsuit filed by Vera Eichmann against the Israelis. Court records are always one of my favorite places to research because they're often overlooked, but courts always keep meticulous records. Through one of my researchers, I petitioned the courts to see the lawsuit files. No response. I tried again. Come back in six weeks, they said, fill out this paperwork and that. Then again. You need a lawyer, they said. Then again. Finally we were given the records, which had never been accessed before.

In the file was a long report about the Argentinean investigation into the capture, which was fascinating. But no passport! A few weeks later, we heard that the judge who approved our seeing the records had gone through the file before agreeing to its release and given the passport to the Holocaust museum in Buenos Aires. Fortunately, the judge credited my researcher with the discovery, and we were given full access to the passport.

Q: What was the great challenge in writing the book?

A: No debate. It was writing the narrative sections on Eichmann during the war, how he escaped, and how he lived while on the run. When I set out to write this history, I thought I would focus almost exclusively on the hunters, not the hunted. But after discovering a memoir by Eichmann on his postwar years, not to mention reading two well-known autobiographies, I really felt that I could accurately portray his actions and mindset.

This got me into his head, so to speak--and this was an extremely uncomfortable place to be. For a while I had a bad case of insomnia, and when sleep did come, I had nightmares about his actions against the Jews. Although I knew I'd be affected by the subject matter, its level of intensity was surprising.

Q: How active is the search for surviving Nazi war criminals today?

A: A significant effect of the Eichmann case was the drive to bring the killers to justice, not only in the early 1960s, but half a century later. Before Eichmann, governments, including those of the United States, Germany, and even Israel, were doing very little. That was also the case with Simon Wiesenthal, who by 1960 had also largely given up his efforts. Today the Wiesenthal Center, led by its intrepid Nazi hunter Ephraim Zuroff, has launched a campaign to catch the last surviving Nazi war criminals.

Beyond the Nazis, sadly, there are recent war criminals from conflicts in Darfur, the Balkans, and elsewhere. I believe that the drive to bring these individuals to account is, at least in part, a legacy of Eichmann, whose trial showed that perpetrators of genocide must pay for their crimes, and their acts must be made known to the world so that they can be prevented in the future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story
I thoroughly enjoyed "Hunting Eichmann."Its a story that needed to be told.The author did a great job with the research to bring this story to life.Eichmann, the mastermind of the Nazi's "Final Solution" evaded capture for many years. Finally, a trail is developed that leads to Eichmann's hiding place in Argentina.The book covers Eichmann's escape from Germany and early efforts to locate him, his resettlement in Argentina, and the story of the Mossad's operation to bring him to justice.It is a very interesting read.

4-0 out of 5 stars This Spy thriller is Non Stop!
Wow!I have always believed that non-fiction is better than fiction and Hunting Eichmann is another book to make my case. Neal Bascomb does a thorough account of this infamous Nazi war criminal's rise to power, escape from the Allies after the war, his life in Argentina and eventual capture and execution by the Israelis in the early 1960's. All the key players involved on both sides of the fence are historically documented, in this gripping true story.

With early accounts of the genocide done by Eichmann and the Nazis, the war ends in 1945 and the cat and mouse game begins. Evading early capture, Eichmann uses his old boy network to help him keep one step ahead of those looking for him. But, with the overwhelming Allied presence, his luck runs out. Under a a series of aliases, he is put in a POW camp and blends in with the rest of the men. But as the Nurenburg Trials begin, he starts to worry and escapes. He finds work under his assumed alias but grows tired of a life in Germany where he has to constantly look over his shoulder. Through old connections Eichmann leaves Germany, and after a few stops along the way, escapes toAustria, and eventually finds safe passage to Argentina. There he begins his new life and what he hopes will be the end of the running game.

The books takes a new twist as word leaks out that he may be living there with his family. Many are still on his trail-though it has seemed to grow cold, until a break comes through. With new information and the interest of the the Israeli Government in catching him, the Mossad takes action.The intensity level is kicked up a notch as they prepare in full mode to catch and bring Eichmann back to Israel for trial. Non stop preparations are put into place, and nothing is overlooked, from the color of ink on forged documents to how to deal with government officials. This is where this book shines as we learn about every detail that the Mossad takes to do their mission. With Eichmann capture in Argentina , events continue to build with intensity as the Mossad now have to move him out of the country undetected to Israel, thousands of miles away.

What makes this book great is that many involved in his capture had actual ties to the Holocaust.They definitely had a score to settle and fond justice in the end. The bigger picture was more important to Israeli Prime Minister Ben- Gurion, who wanted young Israelis to be aware of the Holocaust and for its victims to open up and make the world never forget about this dark chapter in our history. Defending his actions to his death, Eichmann continued to claim his innocence and use the standard Nazi line of, "I was only following my orders". This book is a well written account of an important part of history.-you will be at the edge of your seat as your read this spy thriller. As I said in the beginning; true stories seem so much more interesting than made up ones. And this book will not leave you disappointed. I guarantee it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great read!
This book was a great read, hard to put down. The narration goes from Eichmann's close shaves in Germany to his escape to Argentina and his lack of successful life there to the stories of those who hunted him down.

It reads like a adventure novel. For anyone who reads history, this is a must.

5-0 out of 5 stars I read it in one day.
The author tells the engrossing store of Adolf Eichmann and his eventual date with justice well. It is hard to recommend anything on this topic as "summer reading", but I couldn't put it down.

4-0 out of 5 stars an amazing story of a successful operation and triumph of dedicated individuals
In the tradition of Black Hawk Down, or Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden, this is a great non-fiction that reads like an excellent suspense story.There are intriguing and exciting characters with personal history and missions and their amazingly meticulous clandestine operation of bringing Eichmann to justice.There are these individual agents that were involved and their personal stories, and what the operation meant to them, to their people, to their country at that time and to the complex (messy) international politics. Eventually and more importantly, it is a reminder of the enormous significance of their accomplishment in the history of evil and human suffering. It is a fast paced page turner with well researched historical facts, very engaging, fun and educational as well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
Excellent book!!! I read this book as a young man and it helped me then to appreciate the history and art of a traditional archery --a sport thatI had already loved.Saxton Pope did everyone a great favor in writing of his friendship with Ishi(the last of the Yani tribe)and of his companions, trying to emulate and improve on what the native master had taught them.I ordered this again after losing my original copy years ago, and found it revived my appreciation of this wonderful sport yet again.I have started using the information and techniques this time around to make arrows and soon a bow with my son.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tom' Opinion
If you want to be tradional, this book is for you. A needed book for your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic archery title
I'm not sure what the previous reviewer expected, but meanwhile, back on earth...

This is a classic archery text, written by Ishi's physician, Dr. Saxton Pope, one of the namesakes of archery's Pope and Young Club. Taught to hunt by Ishi, Pope details the making of bows and arrows pre-1925 as well as hunting various game animals with them. A wonderful book from one of the grandfathers of making wooden bows as well as modern bowhunting.

Product Description
"I don't regard nature as a spectator sport." -Ed Zern, 1985

Hunting is a serious business-but it's also about camaraderie, achievements and failures, seeing new places, and revisiting cherished ones. The true stories here feature a variety of game, in locations that range from high Yukon Territory mountain peaks to lowland swamps off of Mobile Bay, Alabama.

This is an indispensable volume for all lovers and students of the natural world. If your definition of home includes fields and marshes, creeks and river bottoms, plains and mountains, consider this required reading.
Amazon.com Review
If the captivating smile of a young Hemingway crouched over alion isn't enough to pull you inside the covers of The GreatestHunting Stories Ever Told, the remarkable prose you'll findthroughout its pages will.Its target is serious writing, and it bagssome powerful literary prey. LamarUnderwood, long an editor at Sports Afield andOutdoors, has assembled a stellar collection from the pens ofHemingway (naturally), Faulkner, Turgenev, Thomas McGuane, VanceBourjaily, Patrick O'Brian, Robert Ruark, and Teddy Roosevelt, all ofwhose prose hunts for big answers as well as big game.

Whileclearly addressed to the fraternity of hunters, the essays and storiesin this collection transcend the boundaries of the field. McGuane,writing passionately about how the hunt for food defines who we are in"The Heart of the Game," observes, as Sitting Bull did before him,"when the buffalo are gone, we will hunt mice, for we are hunters andwe want our freedom." Hemingway, in "Remembering Shooting-Flying," anEsquire column from 1935, keeps world affairs in perspectivewhen he wonders "how the snipe fly in Russia now and whether shootingpheasants is counter-revolutionary." "The Forest and the Steppe" isone of Turgenev's evocative "Hunter's Sketches"; evocative alsodefines "Mister Howard Was a Real Gent," one of Ruark's marvelous "OldMan and the Boy" contributions to Field & Stream.

Given theoverall subject, there is plenty of sporting drama throughout, butalso plenty of thoughtful reflection, and absolutely magnificentstorytelling, which is as it should be. When you set your sights onthe greatest, your aim needs to be true. --Jeff Silverman ... Read more

This is the true story of a boy who was orphaned at a young age and given to a farmer who treated him very poorly.In his early teens, he runs away and happens to meet Kit Carson, who takes him under his wing and treats him like an adopted son.(As he leaves, the revenge he takes on the housekeeper who had been so cruel to him is one of the highlights of the book.)He has many amazing adventures as a hunter, trapper, army and wagon train scout, indian fighter and so on.He barely escapes certain death on many occasions, rescues women captured by indians, etc.The book covers most of his life and shows his gradual development from an ignorant boy to a skilled and highly regarded frontiersman whose advice and assistance are sought by Army officers and others who have to brave the dangers of the "wild west."I've read the book twice and will no doubt read it again.Considering his scarcity of formal education, he writes quite well and with humorous understatement when describing experiences that would have most of us soiling our clothes.A real "guy's" book. ...

Product Description
After following the advice from a manual called "How to Meet and Marry Mr Right", Jane learns that in love there is neither pattern nor promise. This is a funny collection of connected stories and a portrait of Jane, a woman manoeuvring her way through love, sex and relationships.Amazon.com Review
Jane Rosenal, the narrator of The Girls' Guide to Hunting andFishing, is wise beyond her years. Not that that's saying much--sincenone of her elders, with the exception of her father, is particularly wise.At the age of 14, Jane watches her brother and his new girlfriend,searching for clues for how to fall in love, but by the end of the summershe's trying to figure out how not to fail in love. At twice thatage, Jane quickly internalizes How to Meet and Marry Mr. Right,even though that retro manual is ruining her chances at happiness. In theintervening years, Melissa Bank's heroine struggles at love and work. Theformer often seems indistinguishable from the latter, and her experiencesin book publishing inspire little in the way of affection. As Janeannounces in "The Worst Thing a Suburban Girl Could Imagine": "I'd been arising star at H----- until Mimi Howlett, the new executive editor,decided I was just the lights of an airplane."

Bank's first collection has a beautiful, true arc, and all thesophistication and control her heroine could ever desire. In "The FloatingHouse," Jane and her boyfriend, Jamie, visit his ex-girlfriend in St.Croix, and right from the start she can't stop mimicking her beautifulcompetitor, in a notably idiotic fashion. "I'm like one of those animalsthat imitates its predators to survive," she realizes--one ofseveral thousand of Bank's ruefully funny phrases. But even as Jane clownsaround, desperately trying to keep up appearances, she is so hyperaware ithurts. Again and again, the author explores the dichotomy between life asit happens and the rehearsed anecdote, the preferred outcome. In TheGirls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, even suburban quiet has "nothing todo with peace." Bank's much-anticipated debut merits all its buzz and,more to the point, transcends it. --Kerry Fried ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Keeps Me Coming Back
I first read this about four years ago, and when I re-read it this weekend, it amazed me how much I remembered, how many sentences seemed to describe my life, how the spaces between them invited me to linger. Her spare style communicates succinctly, allowing the reader room to imagine, without ever being vague. I love the vignettes, especially in the beginning, which establish relationships and characters with just one or two lines of dialogue. The stories are not all about one person, but Jane is certainly the primary character, and much is told through her first-person view. The stories are quick and filling, funny and smart, humble and true. One of the best books I've ever read, and one to which I'll continue to return.

4-0 out of 5 stars Girls grow up
"The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing" is funny, insightful, empowering. It taught me that a coming of age story doesn't have to be a contiguous chronology. It can skip periods, or years even, which may tighten the story and make it better. The last chapter, in which the protagonist argues (in her head) with two authors of a twin book to "The Rules" is my favorite.

2-0 out of 5 stars Interesting at times, but mostly bland
This book apparently had a lot of hype surrounding it several years ago, and reading it now I have no idea why it was so successful. I found this novel to be very dry and the characters to be very flat. There is a difference between simple, powerful prose and sentences that simply lack detail and any emotion whatsoever. I understand completely how an author may think that a simpler, more juvenile writing style adds a flair and a certain art to a piece of writing, but for this novel I think it diminished the quality.

At the end of the novel, I know very little about Jane, almost as little as I knew of her from the very first chapter (which was really the only part of this entire book I enjoyed). Jane's relationship with Archie was interesting, as well as her relationship with Jamie; however, I don't think these relationships were explored to the extent they could have been and I did not connect with any of the characters because of the complete lack of emotion throughout the entire novel. Also, the continuity problems were very distracting, right along with the random chapters thrown in about characters that Jane never even met. I really don't understand the point of that. If you have a short story and you can't get it published on its own that does not mean you should randomly place it into your novel.

The author certainly has talent, and there are a few one-liners in this book that are well written, interesting, or funny. But to read an entire book in this style, completely devoid of details, grows old very quickly.

4-0 out of 5 stars breezy fun
This book was the perfect antidote after having been weighed down by some serious non-fiction.Jane Rosenal is a single thirty-something whose best asset is her wit, and the book is full of LOL quips.Although it seems to invite comparisons to Bridget Jones's Diary, this is not a diary, and it has a few sad events as well.In fact, there's a middle chapter that's narrated by a neighbor of Jane's aunt that seems to be not even tangentially tied to the rest of the book, and I didn't quite get that.Back to Jane.We witness her relationships with her family, her boss, and her various lovers, especially Archie, who's at least 20 years older, and who serves as sort of a mentor, teaching her to trust her instincts where work is concerned.Now if only she had trusted her instincts with regard to him!I thoroughly enjoyed the author's breezy style, which, in times of sadness, seemed a little inappropriate, but frankly, I'd prefer that to tear-inducing heavy-handedness.One unfortunate consequence, though, is that the story is not particularly memorable, except for the ending.Here Jane becomes more Bridget Jones-y, as she starts listening to the voices from a book that advises playing hard to get and resisting the urge to be funny.Unfortunately, Jane decides to apply this advice when she finally meets a guy who appreciates her for who she is, with near-disastrous results.

1-0 out of 5 stars One of the worst books I have ever read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great
Great book. Has a lot of good information. Used this book to get my beginner equipment

5-0 out of 5 stars Pro reader, amateur ghost hunter
I have only been on a few ghost hunts with professional investigators, but never on my own. So I decided, from what I had experienced, that I wanted to explore paranormal investigation, ghost hunting in particular, in more depth. I had heard a lot of good things about Ms. Ellis' book, so I bought it and devoured it. Not only was it full of extremely helpful information, but was fun to read. I had some issues with how expensive this "hobby" might get, but after coming to the logical result that to do anything well you must have the proper tools, I purchased the equipment suggested by this book. I can't say enough about this book for a semi-amateur ghost hunter like myself. What a find! I highly recommend this book. Kudos to the author.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT GUIDE!!
I have no clue what "Marve" read. For that matter, its obvious Marve doesn't know what Marve read! Too bad, because this extremely well written book offers the novice researcher everything he or she needs to know to make a decision as to whether paranormal investigation is for them. This field requires the participant to open their closed mind, not to slam the door and lock it.

THE EVERYTHING GHOST HUNTING BOOK delivers what the title promises and then some. It is highly entertaining, but at the same time its also a painstakingly researched factual guide to all aspects of paranormal research and investigation. Unlike many "guides" before it, it provides the rarely seen diverse insights of actual investigator's working in this field.

Buy this book, you will not be disappointed!

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT?? The previous reviewers must be newbies!
I cannot just tell you this book is bad. I cannot just say this book is wrong on soooo many levels. I have to tell you why.


This is the most biased book I have ever read. I am trying to grow a book collection and got it at a very reasonable price. I have more than 80 books now. I admit, when the book came in the mail, I was excited! I love books like these. They are usually quite informative and sometimes give a differing point of view on the subject I am obsessed with. Once I read it through I was amazed to find out there are no other teams really worth mentioning through most of the book besides the authors friends and TAPS. This book should be titled "The Field Guide to Butt-Kissing Ghost Hunting Celebs".


It tells you to use technology that many serious researchers have dismissed as contaminating the environment you are trying to investigate! Why would you want to fill the room with EMF and static electricity??


Raising money for ghost hunting is hard. How can you pay for all your ghost hunting gadgets? The author has some suggestions!

1. Teach paranormal classes. OK, that sounds reasonable. If you have the experience, why not?
2. Cleanse spaces. WHAT, HUH???? Going from paranormal research to voodoo in 10 seconds flat!
3. Write a book (OK), article (still with ya) or script. A script?? To be successful, go ahead and sell you soul to Hollywood! Good advice.
4. Work as a media consultant. OMG.
5. Debunk. Who is going to pay me to tell them your haunting is BS?
6. Maintain a members only website. Welcome to Sinning for Ghost Hunters! How to be absolutely corrupt in 6 easy lessons!

So, you want to be a serious paranormal researcher, like the parapsychologists of old? Good luck! This book talks about spells, enchantments, demons and witchcraft. Not objectively either! As tools you SHOULD use or avoid!

I think I am going to be sick.

I think the author is a talented writer and could have put a really good book together. However, this is not such an example.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another top value indie book
I really enjoyed this book, the plot and characters held my interest all the way through. Sure there were minor flaws in the book, but for a first novel I think this one is right up there with well-known, so-called 'major list' writers who write thriller novels.

As for the calling the book pornography as a few people labelled the book in the Amazon forums, I wouldn't have even noticed the few 'offending' paragraphs (and that's all they were in a long book) if my attention hadn't been drawn to them.They certainly never raised an eyebrow with me - either of them.I believe they helped define the particular character involved and his later actions. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to my mother or a maiden aunt.Perhaps in Australia we're not quite so judgmental nor prudish.

And to think this book only cost me $0.99!It has to be the best value novel I've bought since I got my Kindle.I am certainly looking forward to Mr Smith's next book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a reminder of being prepared for the sins of the past to haunt you in the future. It was suspenseful and kept my attention throughout.

Minor editorial and grammatical errors, but they didn't detract from the story.

Sexual content did not bother me and I didn't find it graphic, and I found it explained or put in context actions that particular character took.

All in all a book I will read again.

4-0 out of 5 stars Drama, Sex, Lies, and Revenge.
This is a well-written novel about how the past can consume us and affect decision making. Driven by revenge, Louis sets a series of events into motion that keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely worth downloading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fifth Avenue: A Thriller - book REVIEW by Nolan
Excellent story!Explosive from the beginning, this story ingeniously portrays a lustful greed for power, control, money, and dominance - but, who really wins in the end, and at what cost?
* The insane billionaire out for revenge of his wife's thirty-one-year-old murder?
* The rich tycoon and his dysfunctional family that's targeted for death from this lunatic's vengeance?
* Another power player who sneaks in to grab everything for himself?
* The wealthy, beautiful people that work for the prestigious conglomerates?
* Or, the mafia family and paid assassins who are intricately involved in this story, too?

This novel contains an intriguing plot that keeps the reader guessing at what will happen next. As the story moves you forward at a breathtaking, steady pace without slowing down or slacking off - not even during the tense, dramatic and explicit scenes of domestic violence, abuse, homosexuality, and heterosexuality - it brings the very realistically described characters to life in a way that gets you involved and makes you care what happens to them.You also get a very real sense of what New York looks like through the author's description.And, the ending is certainly not disappointing.

I enjoyed this story immensely, would definitely recommend it, and would classify it as a MUST READ - especially if you love mysteries, romance, action, and serious drama.With its crime-outside-every-window depiction, it certainly re-affirms my belief that I'll never want to visit New York, much less live there.

Be warned, however, that the novel needed to have a better proofreader, as there are a dozen or so typos and word flubs that could throw you off momentarily.

4-0 out of 5 stars Predictable at times, but overall a good read
A solid tale of scandal, revenge and intrigue. The ending caught me a bit off-guard (although there were clues along the way for those astute enough to pick up on them). A lot has been made by a some of the sexual content and language, but it's a very minor part of the book and is there for character development - it's not gratuitous.I'll definitely read this again. ...

thrilled at the accotults which spoke in terms of easy

and in nly vivid but nlisguided imagination, I pictured
an elephant gun as a sort of cannon-a huge,
unwieldy arquebus-that fired a ponderous shell.
The old woodcuts of daring hunters and charging
lions inspired me with unrest and longing-the
longing to bid the farnl farewell and start down tile

The broader series is about a special unit within the FBI, formed by Noah Bishop. All its members have some sort of psychic ability, including "seers" and "mediums". These agents use their abilities to hunt down the worst and most elusive criminals.

The Fear series follows agent Lucas Jordan, as he tries to find a serial killer who makes a game of murder. Lucas' psychic talent relies on his ability to tap into the fear of the victim. However, tapping into that fear comes at a great personal price.

The plot never has a dull moment. The characters are each well developed and their relationships are as much a part of the story as the murders. While Hunting Fear is part of a series, a reader could easily pick this one up and read it as a stand-alone.

3-0 out of 5 stars The author needs some REAL "crystal balls"
The characterizations in all Hooper's series are good, the action believable... and the author's grasp of various psychic talents and phenomona, some of which I've experienced, is convincing. It would have been more impressive, however, if those psychic talents ever actually served to solve most of the crimes presented. (The killers are usually much more psychically adept, which is frustrating.) One would assume that great evil & depravity would just OCCASIONALLY be transparent, or at least provocative to the much-touted enhanced intuition. There is just a little too much "I had a dream, I saw a shadow but his face wasn't clear." I frankly keep wanting this author to be less tentative with her concept -- to take a firmer hold -- to get some REAL "crystal balls" (you should excuse the expression). The reader LONGS for just one of Hooper's psychic good guys to jump up in a room and announce, "AHA!I can see into your mind, and YOU are the killer!"OK, it might make for a shorter story... but I wearied of the persistent & contrived murkiness, after three or four of these books.

4-0 out of 5 stars More psychic fun
Kay Hooper has written multiple books dealing with Noah Bishop and his FBI Special Crimes Unit, made up of psychics.I haven't been disappointed with any of her books.She writes in such a way to make the stories plausible, as well as fun.

Lucas Jordan, a profiler for the unit, is summoned to aid in solving a string of kidnapping/murder cases.He travels to Clayton County in North Carolina and runs into Samantha,aka Zarina, a mystic/palm reader with a traveling carnival.Lucas and Samantha have a history together and will rely on one another tosolve this latest string of crimes and stay alive in the process.The killer kidnaps his victims and places them in situations which results in their deaths if they are not found within a specific time period.The killer doesn't actually perform the murders but he feeds off his victim's fear of the situation he places them in.There's not much else I can say without giving away spoilers.Samantha comes forth and predicts the next kidnapping but the sheriff blows her off until she stays behind bars until after the next killing, thus proving she had nothing to do with it.

Ms. Hooper has written another solid, suspenseful, fun novel that is worth the time it takes to read it.Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference --- great pictures
I've been reading this book for 2 weeks. It is an easy-to-read reference on hunting techniques, hunting gear, etc. For me, it is a good introduction.

If this review was helpful, please add your vote.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for beginning hunters
At 44 I'm new to hunting so I'm reading everything I can find to gain knowledge quickly. This is the first book I bought other than reading magazines and it's a great one. It's also filled with pictures so the whole family can enjoy it. I was surprised that it's a hard back book at this low price too so looks nice on the coffee table. The book covers all types of animals, gun & bow as well as strategies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
Great Book!This comprehensive book makes a great gift for new hunters!It provides a comprehensive look at hunting in North America!

1-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete Guide to Hunting
I am a beginner, but it was very shallow lacked detail and was not helpful but jsut glossed points over and failed to deliver what it promised. I am sorry I bought it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful, especially to novice hunters
This book helped me pass my hunter education test which is needed to get a hunting license in my state, so I can testify to its usefulness.

It is well illustrated and clearly written. It is intended to be more of an introduction than an encyclopedia of hunting, even though it is pretty comprehensive. It covers topics like types of firearms, ammunition and bows, their safety, and techniques for hunting various types of game. Also, there is a comprehensive section with most of the popular birds and mammals in North America.

Topics which are not well covered are what to do with (dress) your game after you've taken it, and legal issues around getting licensed, tagging the game, etc - for those, you need to check with your state Fish and Wildlife agencies.

Overall, it is a great book and highly recommended. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Dialogue for a first grader
Trivial dialogue, predictable outcome.Maybe if I read it in French..... Liked the weight of the pages, that's about it.Reminded me of reading a comic book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I really liked everything about this book down to the pages it was written on. They are really nice pages! I felt all warm and fuzzy after reading this book and can't wait to read her other book I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere. I didn't want to put this book down and was upset when I was forced to. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends. I usually give books about 100 pages to spark my interest, but this book did so immediately.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good read and equally good translation.
This was a good book that I would love to see as a movie. The descriptions are delicious and the sort of "stream of consciousness" style a la Joyce kept the pace up and compelled me to read this in just two days.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable
This book will stay with me a long time.I wish I could read it in French, but assume that the translation was done well, as it is a joy to read.If it is even more eloquent in it's original language that would be incredible.The characters that Anna Gavalda created are so unforgettable. In it's simplest form, it is a story of abiding friendship, but it is so much richer and deeper than that.Don't we all know people that come along with unwieldy baggage from their childhood and rather different and strange characteristics?This story unfolds as the layers of each individual are peeled away and, as acceptance and understanding grows, so does the depth of their love for one another.A beautiful read that you won't forget.Merci beaucoup, Ms. Gavalda!

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprizing

5-0 out of 5 stars Disciplined process to produce bigger sales to bigger customers
Written by abusiness woman and educator, this book clearly describes the process to make change your company's attitude and approach to selling.Filled with methodology, tools and case studies, this book presents a "how to" disciplined process that can transform your company to find, sell, and deliver bigger sales to bigger customers.If you are falling short, perhaps it is time to try this proven process that's different than what you've been doing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time?
Just another one of those many books claiming to have the secret to growing your business by using an analogy. This one is whales! There's only one way to get new business; there's only one way to get new sales. How? Just do it. Quit reading all of those "how to books" and just go do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for sales team
Whale Hunting is a must read for all professionals that are looking to be successful. The book is very simple in nature & you will find helpful. I bought six hardcover from amazon at a very discounted price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compass for answering an RFP
I read this book first from cover to cover and enjoyed the analogy.

It was not until our company really had to answer an RFP that this book showed its true merit.We used this book and Searcy's new book, RFPs Suck, almost exclusively to create a winning proposal.We not only beat out an incumbent but won the job without being the lowest price by showing how we would save the requesting company time and money.

As a small business, I always thought that our unique selling proposition was our nimbleness, our creativity, and our innovation.While these characteristics continue to be important to us internally and to other smaller clients, we learned through Whale Hunting that this is not what lands big companies.

I read the book, I used the teachings of the book, and we got the whale that we had never landed.Five stars obviously.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Realistic Paradigm Shift
This is not just a book, it is a paradigm shifting opportunity for any organization. While the Whale Hunting analogy may be difficult for some to adopt, the concept is real and tangible. The basis for this philosophy is that the organization creates a culture that is prepared to nurture and sustain relationships with the right client.The actual capture of the client, while it may take a while and tire out the orgainization, is the culmination of all of the preparation.The entire organization supports the process, which inherently will break down silos, build team, and encourage process instead of magic.

Our organization took this concept to the next level, and invited Barbara in to assist us with developing the next tangible steps.Her energy and enthusiasm about building a strong culture that is ripe for "the whale", as well as her support for bringing this strong methodology and making it appropriate for our industry, was very appreciated.We have only begun to embark on this journey, and are anticipating a successful outcome! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best entry in the series
Had the first half of this book not been bogged down by chasing idiot kids through the bush and kept focus on the war and the main characters, it would have been much more enjoyable.The children seemed to have been thrown in the mix to make our teen guerilla fighters a little less rough around the edges, but what the author seems to have done is tossed in five useless characters that needlessly get in the way.

It's not until the second half that the story picks up and returns to the character interaction and heart pounding excitement this series is known for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Less action than the other books, but a good solid story
I have just read this series of books in a very short space of time, and think it is a great story. There are a lot of Australian colloquialisms though, which may be confusing to North Americans.

Out of all the books, this was the one with the least action, but still a good car chase and a 'breather' in the action of the war...

I recommend the whole series.

5-0 out of 5 stars the Tomorrow Series (night is for hunting)
This book is definatly one of the best. It is an adventure thriller, it captures you, and never lets go.The descriptions vivid. The night is for Hunting is about a group of kids, who in the first book of the series, learn after camping, their country has been invaded. there are 7 books in the series, along with a series after the war. I recommend you buy all of them. you wont be able to stop. Not only is it a Thriller but throughtout the series the main charecter has to struggle with emotions, and the growing violence inside themselves. These people stay with you, and you start to feel they are real, and you know so much about them. They become a part of you, youll hate to leave them. I know I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Night Is For Hunting

I strongly recommend this book to those who thirsts for adventure. The Night is

For hunting is a truly awesome book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book 6 of 7 in Tomorrow Series
This may be the weakest volume in the Tomorrow series.It is still a non-stop page turner, but it didn't have the action you'd expect after reading the first 5 volumes.The story is mostly about dealing with a band of feral orphans of the war.They cause constant trouble and frustration for Ellie, and the others.This is the only book in the series that leaves a cliffhanger at the end to get you crying for the finale...which I will start to read as soon as I finish this review. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars JF has done alot better
I understand making the leading lady a strong independent woman but Asia was quite annoying she was so selfish and thickheaded through the whole story i think half the reason i continued was in hopes she would grow up. you can be a strong woman and still appreciate the company of a good guy. Because of her attitude the whole book the story was never able to grow the plot could have been so much better if the main characters werent fighting all the time.

I did like the idea of the Beneath and some of the other characters seemed very interesting. I will give the next book a shot.

1-0 out of 5 stars Never Got Better
I kept reading this book hoping it would get better but it was a total waste of time.I found the premise of different planes doubtful and uninteresting.Information about other planes might have helped. What would happen if someone fell into the abyss?Where did the mysterious substance holding the village together come from?There were more questions than answers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy a different Jacuelyn Frank novel
My favorite book is Jacob. Hands down out of everything I've ever read and I have over 800 books in my rated section here on amazon. That's nifty by the way.
Anyhow, needless to say, I love Jacquelyn Frank. I did not love Hunting Julian as a matter of fact I disliked it so much I quit reading it that doesn't happen to me often. But when I found myself wishing the heroine would throw herself off of one of Julian's hanging city buildings I knew I was done with this book.
The idea is awesome. A woman chasing the man she believes has murdered her baby sister, suddenly finds herself at his mercy. And for the first chapter or so he is very alpha and so very yummy. Then everything changes, he doesn't watch out for her expects her to go along with everything he tells her without any explination and rather than throw her over his shoulder and drag her back to his man cave when she doesn't (which would at least be interesting) he whines. (I hate whiney men!!)Asia keeps telling him how tough she is and yet he is constantly pulling her out of trouble. (Admittedly he gets her into the trouble in the first place) but she keeps telling him she won't be his breeder but she never really tries to get free!?!
I found the heroine to be full of hot air and the hero to be wishy washy. I hope her next two novels are better. I'd hate to have to stop reading her.

1-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Wait For It To Finally Finish
This author was on my "To Read" List, but I didn't know which titles I wanted when I was at the bookstore. I chose this one and "Stealing Kathryn". I was pretty disappointed after the first few chapters.The creation and concept of "Beneath", it's population and laws was just fine.Both the characters, Asia and Julian, just ended up annoying me greatly.I was totally frustrated with Asia's stubborn refusal to accept her new reality, and Julian's sensitivity annoyed me even more.The love-making seemed over the top and out of context in this novel (and I do like it steamy).I couldn't wait to finish reading it and put the book down.Now, I'm not sure I have the stamina to read the next title in the series, even after a break. Good plot, bad character development.

4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable book to read
This book, to me, came out screaming.There was no reading some 150 pages before the relationship between Julian and Asia got heated.Right from the git go, you were pulled into Julian's masculinity.I liked the character of Asia.I liked that Ms. Frank made Asia strong, determined and independent yet not a bi#ch.

From the first few pages of this book, I knew that I would like it.I like the way Ms. Frank writes and she surely is not hesitant in her sexual scenes between hero and heroine.This is one of the main reasons why I like her books.

Asia thinks Julian is a serial killer and to which had done something to her sister Kenya and goes after him.He ends up taking her to this new world without her permission and there she has to stay.She finds out that not only does her sister live but went willingly to this new world.The only problem I have with the book is that Asian blames Julian for taking herself to this new world without her permission, when the only reason Asia was seeking him out in the first place was because of her sister. Kenya, meeting up with him at a bar and then disappears, because Kenya agrees to go to this new world to help.To me, I would be mad at my sister for all the heartache I went through in thinking that Kenysa was dead and not Julian.

I loved the character of Julian.He was very masculine and manly.....basically everything a woman would want in a man, i.e., he was caring, a wonderful lover and his heart was opened to be hurt, unlike Asia, whose heart she protected for fear of taking that step and loosing her independence.

There also came a time in the book wherein it did not keep my attention, and I almost gave in but held in there to give Ms Frank a chance to pull me back in, and to that end, she did, as I knew she would.I loved her Shadowdwellers series and am reading The Nightwalkers.So, because I got a little disinterested in this book at one time, this is why I am giving it four starts instead of five.But it is worth the read.The love making scenes, as usual, never disappoints me, and they are not few and far between like some other romance books. ...
