Hard as Stone Rory Ni Coileain
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy
I really enjoyed the beginning to this book, but somehow the more I read the less interested I became. I’m not sure why really, its an interesting plot, and when it became clear that Kevin was facing problems at work I thought that was going to add to the drama. Well it did, and it worked in well with what had gone before but for me the book as a whole just didn’t hold my attention, and I found my mind wandering instead of being engaged with the story. I eventually skim read the last half just to see what happened. I liked Kevin and Tiernan but didn’t ever feel really connected to them, I was never that invested in whether things went well for them, and for me I need that in the lead characters. I want to feel I care about what happens to them and the story and here I just stayed a somewhat disinterested onlooker. Its not the book, it’s definitely me and not the story, it’s a very well thought out and put together read, but as I’m always saying – not all books suit all readers – and clearly this was just a bad choice on my part. I don’t like Terry Pratchett, David Eddings, Tolkien etc. either – great books, as is this, but just not the sort that I want to read.
Stars: Two and a half, just a bad choice on my part, but this will be a five for many so please take note of why it’s not that for me

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
