Since this novel won t be out until later this year, I m not going to go into massive details I m just going to state the facts I was disappointed I don t know if this is the last novel out of the series or if there areI can tell you however that this novel CRAWLED, seriously I felt like I was falling asleep and Mrs Asura or whatever her name is, should of been dead in book two It was like beating a dead horse The only time I perked up in this novel is at the second last chapter, th Since this novel won t be out until later this year, I m not going to go into massive details I m just going to state the facts I was disappointed I don t know if this is the last novel out of the series or if there areI can tell you however that this novel CRAWLED, seriously I felt like I was falling asleep and Mrs Asura or whatever her name is, should of been dead in book two It was like beating a dead horse The only time I perked up in this novel is at the second last chapter, that s when things started getting good The end was rushed in my opinion, the emotions weren t very good I had a hard time relating and I HATED that it showed Juliet s point of view Yes she is part of the book, do I want to see stuff from her point of view Nope, sorry, just don t I want Meridian and Tens but apparently that sucked big time I can say for once in my life, I m pretty tragically disappointed I expected a heck of a lotDon t get me wrong, the story was well written in the sense of tying up lose ends, paragraphing, plot and paraphrasing even but I was just bored stupid This book finds us in the same place as the last book, Meridian and Tens, along with the band of motley crew they put together, are still working to findFenestra, beat the Nocti, and most importantly help Julia with her new place in life Juliet is a hot mess in this one I will fully admit to getting very tired of the way that she tried to isolate herself from the group, how she knew she was doing this, knew it was wrong, yet did it anyway At times it seemed like Juliet was working on he This book finds us in the same place as the last book, Meridian and Tens, along with the band of motley crew they put together, are still working to findFenestra, beat the Nocti, and most importantly help Julia with her new place in life Juliet is a hot mess in this one I will fully admit to getting very tired of the way that she tried to isolate herself from the group, how she knew she was doing this, knew it was wrong, yet did it anyway At times it seemed like Juliet was working on her own mission, not helping the others Had she just sat down to talk to them she would realize that they would do anything to help her It took so much to get through to Juliet and the person that did came in an unexpected form, her protector Fara is not what I expected as a protector, yet she was perfect for Julia I don t think that these two will have the same type of relationship that Meridian and Tens do, but it looks to be one that will have a deep friendship, something both girls need I loved how Fara would mix up her American words on purpose get her point across, even better was Juliet calling her on it and Fara s response to her.I loved that with this book we learnedabout the world of Fenestra s I really liked how new allies sprouted up, how the girl s learned they can dothan help people cross over, and how important they are in the whole scope of things.There were some very touching scenes with some of our other characters, Gus and Faye, if you don t cry when you read about them I would be surprised I loved what everyone did for them and how they were honored at the end Nellie had a big part too I hated how she feels so responsible for what happened to all the kids, it wasn t her fault But in trying to atone for the past she finds love with someone who believes in this crazy world she lives in, I wanted things to stop right there for her, in a happy place.I did find all the action amid the Indy 500 to be funny Here is this big sporting event and there is a good vs evil battle going on around everyone, but they are oblivious.All in all this was a fun read, one with lots of action, where our characters learnedabout themselves and cemented bonds I look forward to reading I love this series so much, I actually squealed when I saw that Speed of Light was available on NetGalley I honestly didn t think that ARC s would be out till much later in the year This is this third book in the Fenestra series and just like the second book Wildcat Fireflies the story is told from alternating points of view, switching back and forth from Meridian and Juliet.Speed of Light throws us right back into the story, straight away you are immersed in Meridian s world and all the crazy I love this series so much, I actually squealed when I saw that Speed of Light was available on NetGalley I honestly didn t think that ARC s would be out till much later in the year This is this third book in the Fenestra series and just like the second book Wildcat Fireflies the story is told from alternating points of view, switching back and forth from Meridian and Juliet.Speed of Light throws us right back into the story, straight away you are immersed in Meridian s world and all the crazy goings on that happens when she is around.This time though Miss Asura is back and she is looking for something, something very important that she needs She tries to enlist Juliet to help the search with promises of revealing the location of her mothers remains While the others try to figure out what Miss Asura is looking for and why she needs it, human remains with links to DG are popping up which also need to be investigated, could any of them belong to Juliet s mother There are quite a lot of new characters introduced in this book, one being the group of Wood Hunters These are people who protect Fenestra knowledge and family history.At first I wasn t too sure what Amber Kizer was trying to do by introducing this new group, but as the plot plays out it soon becomes clear why they are a much needed asset to the story.We also get to meet Fara, Juliet s protector who at first seems like a bit of an odd fit in the group It also seems a little odd that she has taken almost forever to get there and was not there for Juliet s 16th birthday and her transition I was thinking the same thing, all of these questions are explained in the book though.I do like Fara, she seems strong willed and acts like she really cares about Juliet I don t know what is going to happen to them in the future as it s still early days but I think she is a great addition to the little group.The plot in this book is awesome There was so many massive plot twists that I totally did not see coming at all, even as things start to unfold around you you are still left guessing as to what is exactly going to happen This book is not in anyway predictable.I m trying not to give too much away as I know this book isn t out for quite a while yet But I do have to say this, Tens and Meridian finally get down to the dirty After all the talk about it in Wildcat Fireflies, it was really sweet to see them finally trusting in each other enough.The ending did seem to me like the end of a series, everything is wrapped up and the reader is left on a happy note Now I have noticed that there is going to be a fourth book in the series Counting Tens, due for release in 2013 I m not sure where Amber Kizer could go with the story now, but from the title I have a feeling it will either be from Ten s point of view or about his past I would love to learn about his past and everything he went through trying to reach auntie when he was young I guess we ll just have to wait and see Overall to me Speed of Light was the perfect ending to this series even if it isn t the final book , it was full of ups and downs, highs and lows and left me feeling thoroughly contented about the little group of characters I ve come to grow and love This really pains me to write, but I was completely and utterly disappointed in this book I loved Meridian, and liked Wildcat Fireflies, so I was hoping for so muchwith the third book in this series I figured Wildcat Fireflies just suffered from 2nd book syndrome, so I was really excited for this book However, I felt that this book was useless to the series for a number of reasons.1 Juliet s POVI understand that she s another Fenestra and therefore plays a major role, but do I want This really pains me to write, but I was completely and utterly disappointed in this book I loved Meridian, and liked Wildcat Fireflies, so I was hoping for so muchwith the third book in this series I figured Wildcat Fireflies just suffered from 2nd book syndrome, so I was really excited for this book However, I felt that this book was useless to the series for a number of reasons.1 Juliet s POVI understand that she s another Fenestra and therefore plays a major role, but do I want to read from her POV, no I thought it might be interesting, but all Juliet did was whine, complain, and say how she ruined everyone s lives She acted like a 5 year old, not a 16 year old Let s just say I was extremely irritated every time I had to read a chapter with her narration.2 This story was extremely slow Not much actually happened until a good three quarters of the book view spoiler when they finally defeated Ms Asura hide spoiler I thought, Finally, this book is going to pick upBut I was wrong I read through the rest of the book desperately wanting something to happen, and then in the the final stages of the book, everything happened at once And then, just like that it was all over 3 The plot of Ms Asura just didn t really need to be brought into the story I think it was tired and kind of boring 4 The endingthe ending comprised of short chapters about 3 pages each , and alternated between Juliet and Meridan It ended up being a little confusing because there was so much happening and it was going back and forth between the characters.My other complaint was that there was a title for Juliet s name when it was her POV, but none for Meridian Granted, you can figure it out pretty quickly that the chapter is from Meridian s POV, but still If you can put Juliet s name at the beginning of the chapter, you can put Meridian s name too Additionally, there were many errors punctuation, spelling, and grammar that I found as I was reading I hate when this happens because I find myself editing the book as I m reading, and I end up paying attention to every little mistake This ties in with errors, but I found a lot of incomplete or random sentences that made no sense in the story Overall, this book was a major letdown for me, and I m extremely sad to say that I LOVED Meridian, but it seems like as this series continues, the magic is just disappearingandI don t even know if I m going to read the fourth book I guess I ll wait and see what it is about though Read Meridian because it is a great book, but you could probably stop after that I ll be honest I loved the first one I loved the second one, but I did not like the third one at all After the intensity and the greatness of the first two, I was utterly disappointed in the final installment of this series The spice and suspense that I found in the first two novels wasn t found in this one.I think a big problem for some of us was that since we all read the second book the second it came out we forgot some of the plot from the previous book Therefore, I was a wee bit loss, I ll be honest I loved the

of the plot from the previous book Therefore, I was a wee bit loss, but I remember the main things so that s what counts Now on to the writing The plot wasn t really attracting to me I didn t quite get into it and get the chance to fully dig my fingers into it Figuratively It just didn t appeal to me as the first two did I also found that this book was a lot longer than necessary and therefore it made the book slow and somewhat boring I found myself skimming the pages a lot than I really wanted to I especially skimmed at the end One thing that really annoyed me was Juliet s POV I m all for Juliet, but I was looking forof Tens and Meridian Speaking of Tens and Meridian I really wanted there relationship to growThe chemistry that I really enjoyed between the two in the first two novels kind of faded for me I really felt like this book should have focused on Meridian and Tensthan the various POV s The only part that I may have felt the chemistry is at the end where Tens and Meridian do the deed, but even then I felt that the love that I once really appreciated between then turned somewhat shallow.I m somewhat dissapointed in the last installment of this series, but I will always remember the joy, tears, and thrills that the series gave me I ll be looking out for future books by Kizer for sure though I have to admit that this is my least favorite book out of this series which is definitely one of my faves It was a little slow until the very end as many other reviewers have already stated Granted, I understand WHY Kizer chose to write this book less action centered andcharacter and information driven we needed the characters to grow into themselves and we neededbackground info about the Fenestra world However, the majority of the book was Juliet feeling sorry for herself a I have to admit that this is my least favorite book out of this series which is definitely one of my faves It was a little slow until the very end as many other reviewers have already stated Granted, I understand WHY Kizer chose to write this book less action centered andcharacter and information driven we needed the characters to grow into themselves and we neededbackground info about the Fenestra world However, the majority of the book was Juliet feeling sorry for herself and doing bad things view spoiler helping and conferring with Ms Asura hide spoiler or Meridian and the others researching and visiting murder scenes Part of my dislike for the above stems from the fact that I still have a hard time connecting and sympathizing with Juliet, especially after what she does in the beginning half of this book view spoiler but I had no trouble liking her Protector Fara, she was so badass and nonchalant that you can t help but love her hide spoiler Another big problem I had was the ending not necessarily what happened but how it happened You ll know it when you read it but keep reading if you want an explanation view spoiler So Meridian and lovely Tens who is way cuter in my head than on this cover, no offense to the model finally make loveBUT it s literally the last few pages in the book It just felt so rushed and kinda unexpected even though I d hoped and I do not think Kizer gave it enough space She made it seem like it was a big deal between Meridian and Tens, what with waiting until they were both ready, but then they just did it and thennothing We skip ahead one year with no mention of it again, and we don t get to wake up with them the next morning I don t know, maybe I was expecting too much, but the epilogue was sort of random and left something to be desired It felt like a pseudo ending for the series, which I hope it wasn t because there is still so many loose ends that need tying hide spoiler Overall, I thought the way Kizer played out and expanded the storyline was brilliant I still love this series and think this was justof a filler book I m ready for the finale and please let it be epic The title is a rather strange fit I had a hard time staying interested in reading this book Between the Indy 500 and very slow progress it just dragged I have no understanding or appreciation for the Indy 500 There was a vast wealth of information and a descriptive plethora about the experience of attending the Indy 500 Yet it didn t awake in me any desire to experience this sport for myself More like it helped to solidify my belief that this is one sport I will never get into Crowds, dri The title is a rather strange fit I had a hard time staying interested in reading this book Between the Indy 500 and very slow progress it just dragged I

carnage.There were os many pages spent in trust issues And the way those issues were resolved Instead of making meattached to Juliet I found her irritating and boring Meridian and Tens also were dull I think the first book was the best of the three.There are some really strange super power developments in this book On top of which it was annoying to have the good side so perpetually lacking in knowledge and any sense of confidence Always broadcasting their worry that everything will go wrong around them So much fear and doubt.I recommend you read the first book which is excellent and skip the other two There just wasn t anything all that satisfying Especially if you like romance Tens and Meridian get together in the first book after which it is obvious they are going to remain together It doesn t matter how many times Meridian feels insecure or doubt tries to weave into the relationship there is no way they will break up They have the whole soul mate protector thing going on.Content

Fenestra series, and I m giving it three stars because while I enjoyed it well enough, I also see some weirdness in it.Here s the thing by the time we as readers get to the third book, we ve already

re invested in their future Yes, we ve also gotten to know Juliet a bit, and we kind of care what happens to her, but we re or at least I m not willing to sacrifice the investment in Meridian and Tens for her But that s kind of what gets asked of us So much of the story is centered on Juliet, with all of her insecurity and angst and dysfunction, that the story we ve come to care about drifts into the background Before we get any resolution with our main characters, we re switching lanes and following Juliet around I didn t entirely mind Juliet s story, but I did find myself gazing over into the other lane, wishing we d never switched because that other lane looks much cooler.Without giving any spoilers, I can assure fans of the first two books that many of the things you ve been hoping for since book one do happen But sadly, they happen in an offhand, matter of fact way I didn t hate it, but I had greater expectations for it And that s kind of a bummer I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley I really wanted this book to be good because I loved the first book in the series but it just wasn t that great Most of the book revolves around the Indy 500 which I could care less about Also Juliet becomes really annoying in this book, she is basically a female human version of Grumpy Bear from the Care Bears Tens gets a bit of his personality back that was missing in the second book but he is still a shell of what he was in the first book I almost wish I hadn t picked up the first book so I really wanted this book to be good because I loved the

awkward sex scenes I have ever read in a book took place in this one and I don t think it was supposed to be I would have preferred the author to have left the sex out all together rather than the sex and almost sex scenes she adds to her books
