Cliffhangers are just cruel and unusual.

I can't believe we have to wait a YEAR for AFTERMATH to tell us what the heck happened!

In the past few weeks I've read the four Sirantha Jax books and the two Corrine Solomon books.  I read Jax first and absolutely LOVED the whole series.  It's my first foray into SciFi and boy did I pick a winner. 
So I went on to Corine's books and I didn't particularly care for them.  I really liked Chase but just couldn't get into it.  Where I immediately liked Jax, I couldn't warm up to Corine.  [spoiler]Maybe it's because I liked Chase more than Corine did. ???[/spoiler]

I read all of the Grimspace books in the last few days & liked them all. There weren't any that I liked more than the other. Each book had it's own story to tell & Ann told it very well. Of course now I'm dying to know what happens to Jax after the end of the last book...Guess I'll just have to wait & see ;D

I really hated the ending of the second Corine Solomon book, it annoyed me and I was grumpy about it for a few days.

I have!!! I actually think its the best book yet - and the twists def made things interesting.

I thought that [spoiler]Corine def become much harder and edgier due to this book and I loved how her decisions have helped shaped the path that she's on especially since its one that she doesn't want but I got a feeling that may be a good thing.[/spoiler]

I loved Grimspace.  It was exciting, took some old ideas and mixed them up new, and the relationship between them had me alternatively awwing and cracking up.  Then I read Wanderlust, and I fell out of love with the series.  To me, the sequel did not live up to the promise of the first book, and the answers to the mysteries raised in the first one were boring, and not nearly as exciting as they sounded like they should be.  I will definitely be checking Doubleblind out of the library before/if I buy it.  If that one doesn't fix the problems of Wanderlust then I won't be following the series anymore.  Right now I prefer to read Grimspace as a stand-alone.  [spoiler]In particular, the part in Wanderlust where March just takes off on her, spends half the book away from her side, and then magically loses the ability to love.  What the hell?  Their relationship was the highlight of the first book.  Why on earth leave that element out of this one?  And they already went through all the work of getting over their issues and falling in love in Book 1.  They should be moving their relationship forward, not back to square 1.[/spoiler]

I loved Blue Diablo.  I'm afraid to read the sequel now.  I probably won't buy either one until I've checked out Corine 2 and made sure it doesn't suck.

I have to agree.  "Wanderlust" went into a completely different direction and left our main characters at a stalemate... Or totally sliding backwards and was very unsatisfying.  I have been looking at "Double Blind" for years but just can't make myself pick it up, "Wanderlust" left such a bad taste.

I found "Blue Diablo" ok, but wasn't as taken by it as "Grimspace".  Maybe I'll do a re-read and see if it digests better this time.
