    1. I closed this book and immediately went searching for more. Even though the first book is billed as being the first in a trilogy and even though this book leaves things hanging there is no third book. Cunningham is apparently still writing so here's hoping she finishes this series.This book picks up immediately after the first. The one thing I found odd was that in just a matter of days (though it was two years between publishing the first book and this one) Gwen was all of a sudden comfortable [...]


    2. I enjoyed this book but the ambiguousness of the tale left me wondering who actually did what. There's a lot of finger pointing but nothing definitively stated. The tale is confusing enough without the author leaving it up to the reader's interpretation. I like Ian Forest but there is definitely something shady about his character and what the heck is Jason up to. I also like Gwen but she needs to get her head in the game and figure out what's up with her heritage. All the little hints are fine [...]


    3. Scattered thoughts: I didn't realize this was a second book and while I normally prefer to jump in cold, I was a bit overwhelmed with the number of characters and story threads going on. There is a sex scene that doesn't fit the tone of the book and really feels like a stopgap measure to make the book fit in more with the Urban Fantasy genre.I think that the main problem with this book, and the reason that I found it in the bin at an "Odd Lot" store, is the cover. The cover is wretched. If I had [...]


    4. This book was great! Everyone was so wickedly deceitful. You never knew who was going to kill who. and there was a lot of killin' going on. Gwen is a smartass with a "don't fuck with me" attitude that I love. There is no romance in this book. Gwen sleeps with a few friends when she feels the need to, but otherwise her love life is non-existent. Normally that would turn me off from a book, but there was so much going on that I didn't mind her lacking a relationship. I am disappointed that Cunning [...]


    5. Took me a while to actually finish this once I started, probably because I knew that if it ended with a cliffhanger I would probably never get relief, being that the series is suspended indefinitely.The book is cool, due to the fact that it is set in my birthplace and current residence of Providence, RI (woot woot!). I did enjoy the story and progression better with this installment. The true colors of all the players are peeping out. Too bad we might never get a conclusion to the story.I'd say [...]


    6. A different take on elves. I thought the books (this is the 2nd) were enjoyable and very readable, but apparently the publisher didn't see reason to keep going with the series. The author's website mentions trying to put together some longish short stories to wrap up the loose threads, which would certainly be nice. I think this may have just become the first series I _should_ remove from my spreadsheet (since it is technically finished), but, I'll leave it in for now in the hopes of noticing wh [...]


    7. Second in series about elves in our world, and a woman who finds out she was a changeling (an elf left in place of a human baby). She is also an ex-cop, disgraced because of a corrupt police official, now working as a private investigator. Her elf "friends" and human allies of the elves seem to be two-faced and continually scheming, using her as a pawn.


    8. Gigi is now a PI. Her friend asks her to help the friends ex husband find his missing wife. The trouble is the ex had physically abused her friend and Gigi isn't certain that the wife didn't vanish to avoid the same treatment and this is further complicated by her finding evidence that the missing wife is an elf. Meanwhile, someone starts a series of increasingly deadly attacks on Gigi.


    9. I want more Gwen. :) I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but feel let down by the sudden ending of the series. (Not the author's fault.) I hope she will self-publish the 3rd book because I really want to find out how things turn out.


    10. Much like the first book, I feel like this book is just a continuation of the series and cannot really stand on its own. It isn't bad, just has the feeling of being another installment in a mini-series.





    11. The second in Cunningham's dark urban fantasy series about a PI,Gwen Gellman, who isn't as human as she thought.Now, will Cunningham ever get her pen in gear and finish the series??



    12. (The Net acted up, so my longer review disappeared before it was saved ARGH I'll try and write something again another day, okay?)
