I have read a lot of the authors previous books and can say this book is also pretty good So if you like this author, you ll most likely enjoy this book as much as I did, if not .Overall, I did enjoy this book There was one thing missing and I can t even describe what it is It just lacks that umph that the previous book had Although it lacked this, I still enjoyed the book and want to find out .Like a lot of Bella s books, this was a very quick read At 222 pages on my Kindle, it only took me abo [...]
I have followed the vampire shade books since the very beginning, loving every turn that Bella has taken with the story within the shade and now with the Kiev books I must admit that in book 6 when I first met Kiev I disliked him There I said it He made me so angry, but then again I never thought I would have had the chance to expand on his story and get to love him He was introduced to me at a time when Derek and Sofia were struggling so dearly and I had been through a roller coaster of emotion [...]
I was excited when I got word last week that this book was coming out today I was surprised that the first book in this spinoff was a cliffhanger so I was looking forward to continuing Mona and Kiev s story and I m glad we didn t have to wait too long to get it I thought this book was a good continuation and it gave us a lot of answers into Kiev and Mona s pasts, we found out about Kiev s family and about what happened to Mona and why she was cursed and why she didn t have her magic and was exil [...]
A Shade of Kiev 2 follows on from where book 1 left off, and so you need to have read that first in order to keep up.Kiev and Mona are such dark characters, and I ve found it hard to become attached to them However, during this book I ve slowly began to understand how and why they ve become this way, making them a little appealing Plus they are fighting hard to find redemption in themselves for the evil in which they have partaken.I enjoy Bella Forrest s story telling, and that keeps me going b [...]
I have always hated Kiev Especially with what he did in book 6 Book 8 started making me feel sorry for him, but this book made me root for him and love him Poor Kiev, every time he tries to do something good backfires on him At least at the end of this bookhe got a happy ending Can t wait to read what Kiev and Mona will have to do to stay together.
Wow talk about star crossed lovers.Well because I ve read seventeen books in the Shade of Vampire series, I know Kiev and Mona end up together It s just going to be so much fun to read how they make it all happen I ve already downloaded the next book in this series, so now I m off to read 3.
We start with a bit of Kiev s back story Son of a physician, with a brother Erik and sister Helina His parents were dying of what I am going to assume is the plague After Kiev murders a man who rides by on a coach, the man s wife shoots him and he finds the strength to kill her as well He sends Erik Helina with food and money from the coach to live with their miser uncle in the city After his parents die, Kiev starts coming down with the same symptoms coughing up blood The Elder finds him in thi [...]
cannot wait until the 3rd book ahh soooo good I think I m obsessed with Bella Forest
A good bookAs always, I love these books This particular book, I wasn t as enthusiastic about, but still a good read Can t wait to see what happens next for Mona and Kiev.
Ok, this one was better The ending really picked up as a few pieces of the puzzle feel into place My only gripe Does Kiev really need to use sex as a revenge tactic I mean seriously, he starts the story falling into bed with Lorena because he needs to get the taste of witch out of his mouth then sleeps with Triani because he is jealous of Rhys being Mona s lover Hello, it s not like Mona is really enjoying herself Although, to be fair, he didn t find out it was forced until after he hooked up w [...]
My rating for this book is 1.0 star.Estos libros me estan sacando las canas m s faciles y rapidas en mi corta vida Detesto todo lo relacionado con las historias que deber an ser para adolecentes y se convierten en caprichos quejumbrosos totalmente in tiles solo se basan en decisiones meramente adolecentes Donde quedaron las buenas historias de vampiros Es terrible todo este libro es que me parece tan boboLos segui, gracias a un hechizo de invisibilidad Es que si Kiev no es mio no va ser tampoco [...]
I generally enjoy all of the shade books but for some reason this one fell a bit flat for me Since the first book in the series Mona and Kiev have gone their separate ways and the chapters generally alternate between the two and what they are doing It was good that we got to know a little of the history of both of them but the story lost some of its flow as a result Some of the episodes seemed a bit rushed and I couldn t really see the point in them The story only really started to pick up pace [...]
I was in LOVE with A Shade of Vampire series It was intriguing, imaginative, passionate and hilarious at some parts I think the problem began when Bella started branching out with each character I ve no problems until it came to Kiev The first book was wonderful but it seems as if the second book fell short There was a lot of character jumping even though it was from the point of view from two characters and flashbacks happened suddenly I know the flashbacks were there to give a backstory to the [...]
Unfortunately, this book failed to catch my interest at all Kiev is a totally different character, which I could accept if there we re content explaining why I could read only a chapter or two per night because I found myself looking for other books to read after realizing that my mind was wandering while I tried to read I finished it simply because I like Bella s Shade of Vampire series and I hoped that this book would pick up at some point It didn t, for me at least I won t read the 3rd book i [...]
Ah More of Kiev s story and the siblings I am happy that he s found them, though they are vampires and in Kiev s experience that s not always a good thing I also felt for Mona by the time this book was over It was nice to get her background story and I was able to understand, though maybe not agree with the choices she was making I hope there s a HEA for Kiev at some point but I also have the feeling something dark and evil lurks behind the scenes Who the heck is Rhys, or better yet who the heck [...]
Really really enjoyed it Very exciting and continues the story effortlessly I only have one negative and that is true with the other books tooat for me I really wish they were longer They are so short that by the time I m really really enjoying them and have fully got myself into the zone I m at 90% Literally read in a day That being said, it doesn t stop me reading them because the stories are just so good will be patiently waiting for my email
A disappointmentAfter enjoying the Shade of Vampire series so much, I found this series bland and with way too many holes where there was no explanation or believable reason for going from A to B to C No spoilers I anxiously await the release the next release in the Shade of a Vampire series, but don t know that I will be back to follow Kiev s story here His character and actions were much believable there.
There s nothing of interest this book that isn t covered on the back description but it is a good read, especially towards the end when the couple finally reveal about each other and admit they want each other Their relationship doesn t excite me in the way Derek and Sofia s does though I think this is because you feel like you know Kiev from the shade books but he completely changes in these and I personally find it hard to picture and understand mona.
Silly me, I figured just the first Shade of Kiev would be enough and wouldn t need to purchase all of them What was I thinking After the first one, I HAD to hurry and purchase the 2nd so I could continue the story I should know this by now after reading the first series of A Shade of Vampire Another fantastic read by Bella.
I m completely in love with this spin off of The Shade In book 2 we get alot of questions answered yet that creates questions Which is fantastic It s action packed, romantic, and very mysterious I love seeing this side of Kiev The writing was smooth and captivating I loved every second of it Awesome
Love it Diving further into Kiev is a treat,I don t spoil stories with my reviews I do wish Kiev can go back to the shade and tell them what he has learned, that would be interesting As always bella has me wrapped up in her writing g and I have finished both 1 2 of the Kiev books in one day U have to read these, if u love the shade you will love these
I am completely addicted to these books I wish they would just keep going because I think I could read about the Shade and all of the characters for the rest of my life and be content This is an amazing series and the characters and the writing are perfect There is never a dull moment Once you start reading you just can t put it down and you yearn for
Without giving anything away, what a great book Mona has an incredible background story I love Kiev, his story just gets better and better I can t wait for the next book to see what happens after the way this one left off.
Not impressed.I finished this book, but only because I really like the author I felt there was too much going on in this story and even though I read the last one not too long ago, it began in such a way I didn t know what was going on.
Love this storyBella Forrest has created another smash hit The story of Kiev has me laughing, crying, and feeling like an angry witch myself Wonderful story Can t wait for the next addition.
Another wonderful story and action packed can t believe mona went from powerless to trying to become a chandell how ryhs is fitted jnto the story and how kiev found his siblings It keeps getting better can t wait to see how this plays out.
Twist turnsBella forest is an amazing author The tales she writes are entertaining from start to finish This book has so many twists turns but cliff hanger at the end Now to wait for the next book
Eh Again, the entire story seems rushed and not well thought out actually The Kiev I met in the original series doesn t even seem to be related to this Kiev in this series in the slightest Again, I m disappointed but I have the third book already so I might as well finish the trilogy.
GreatIt is such an interesting look into Kiev and where he came from and how he got where he is now I am exploding to see how they all ended up at the real Shade I am off to Read book three
Much better The first book was a good view into watching Kiev and Mona fall for each other and glimpse of their background but now, this book answers all the questions for Mona An easy read but still a good story.
