Challenge blog for series lovers

I decided to start this blog to share my passion for reading with others especially my love of series. There are very few guidelines for this challenge:

1 - No books lists or sign ups; cross over books and challenges are welcome, actually encouraged
2 - If not based on the main character central characters must play a prominent part throughout the series
3 - All genres welcome ~ YA, historical, western, paranormal, mystery, police procedural, adventure, etc.
4 - Re-reading a series is fine too
5 - No trilogies please; only ongoing series

Feel free to stop by any time and let us know what series you're reading, find a new series, or the next book in the series.

If you blog leave a comment with a link to your review. If you don't blog, don't worry. Just leave a comment with the book title, # in the series and your thoughts.

This blog is an evolving work. I have ideas I'd like to incorporate I just have to figure out how.

Just finished...

Predatory Game, GhostWalkers #6
Christine Feehan

She flashed a sassy grin at him. She hadn't helped him pack for the picnic because she'd been trying to come to terms with the fact that Jess was more than a Navy SEAL; he was part of a GhostWalker team. It explained everything, especially why she could so easily be in his company. She had never been able tolerate being around people for very long until she was with Jess. He was definitely an anchor and he drew energy away her. She should have known. Well, on some level she had known; she just hadn't wanted to bring it out in the open and examine it. ~ Predatory Game, page 85 ~

Saber Wynter is running from her past when she meets Jess Calhoun an ex-Navy SEAL who is physically and emotionally compromised by his own mysterious and violent history as a GhostWalker. What Jess senses in Saber is a kindred spirit, a lost soul desperate for sanctuary. He offers her a home, a job, and a haven where she can safely reveal the secrets that shadow her. But danger follows her, too. Now, the riddles of both their pasts are about to collide, shattering the promise of their future with the ultimate betrayal.

This is book 6 in the GhostWalker series by Christine Feehan. While overall I enjoyed this book it took longer for my interest to be caught, almost a 1/3 of way through. I think it's because I know what to expect now that I'm 6 books in. Much more time is spent on the relationship between Jess and Sabre than developing the actual story. Plot lines are starting to run the same course throughout this series without much deviation from book to book. When this series was new to me I didn't know what to expect and therefore I read with more anticipation. While I don't usually read books that have supernatural and/or paranormal aspects as a major feature for the most part this series is plausible and I enjoy the powers and abilities these characters have been given.

** Major sexual content in this series **

No release date information for book #7.
