    " I'm conflicted about this series. The writing is great and the plot and cast of characters are truly unique but it is too difficult to connect with Margrit, the main character. There was nothing interesting or endearing about her. But aside from that, the books are good and the twists and turns will keep you guessing. "

    " This book was fantastic! There was so much I enjoyed! The only reason it doesn't get a full five stars is (view spoiler)[I wanted everyone to stay friends! I love Janx so much and Daisani was fun, too. I hate that everyone had to move off start over. I liked the world where they were all together. I also feel that the ending didn't give me what I wanted to know about Margrit and Alban. Did they move, too, after the wedding? What is Margrit doing for work now? How is Alban doing at being a "guide" for the gargoyles? How does Margrit feel about the second sip of vampire blood? (hide spoiler)] So, it left out some questions I wanted answered. But for the book that it was, I loved it! I really did. It kept me entertained and hooked (to the point I got snappish when interrupted) until the end. "

    " The last book in the series was not fascinating nor extremely entertaining. Margrit, the main character seemed to have lost some of her tenacity and I was doubting her feelings toward Alban. The overall series is good but its not action packed nor thought provoking. It is a detour from the typical supernatural characters. Several myths or fictional characters (like vampires, djins, dragons) that have been written about to exhaustion come together under a code that governs them maintaining their secrecy. The author certainly created a new world with interesting characters. The plot was not as engaging at times. "

    " The first book was decent. I nearly lost interest in the 2nd book. but I was pleasantly surprised with the 3rd book. The character development is nice. I also didn't mind how human sounding the "old races" are. they claim to be so far from humans but in so many ways act like human, but then again the author being human she only knows how to write from her own view no matter how hard she tries not to. Grit is more or less the same but or some reason the last book I was baffled by how the old races were all adoring her at once it seemed. This book has none of that nonsense it has a flowing plot that keeps you interested without being annoyed. "

    " The final book of The Negotiator trilogy picks up not long after the second book. Margrit Knight, a New York City lawyer, has fallen in deep with the Old Races hidden within the city. So deep that one of their deaths is on her hands - and civil war is about to break out because of it. If that's not enough, Grit's gargoyle lover, Alban, has been chained and is subject to a gargoyle tribunal. The dragon Janx and vampire Daisani also have their place in events, calling in favors owed by Margrit - favors at a very high cost. It's up to Grit to utilize her lawyer skills and newfound talents to keep those she loves alive, and try to save those she dislikes as well.[return][return]Hands of Flame is a good book, and an excellent end to the trilogy. The secrets and plot twists were so deft they were hard to follow at times, but it was an enjoyable ride all the way through. Note that this isn't a stand-alone book - if you want to read the series, begin with Heart of Stone, otherwise nothing will make sense. Great urban fantasy series, though I still love Murphy's Walker Papers books the most. "

    " A satisfying conclusion to an interesting series. I'd classify it as a fantasy series rather than romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roberta Sallee | 10/16/2013

    " I really enjoyed this whole series. It was a stretch to buy into the whole concept, but it was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Blocksom | 10/14/2013

    " Interesting twists and turns. I wonder if she'll come back to this series? "

    " See my recommendation for 'House of Cards' and you'll know why the reading date on this one follows on its heels. Once you start reading these books, you'll be watching and waiting for each new release. "

    " This was the last book of the series. It was good and the ending was good :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raquel | 4/8/2013

    " I really hope this is not the end to the series. I wasn't too thrilled with the ending (it was good, but not great imo), so I really, really hope there will be more. "

    " Not a bad end to a trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura (Kyahgirl) | 8/3/2011

    " This was a good book...on par with the rest of the trilogy. I think I enjoyed the middle one slightly more than the other two but this was still good. The story wrapped up or came close toe wrapping up quite a few threads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 6/4/2011

    " The middle of this book was fantastic which bumped it to three stars for me. However the ending was not that good keeping it from four. All and all the best book of the series by far. "

    " As interesting as the storyline is, I was thoroughly fascinated with the characters!

    This is part of a series.. I have yet to read the two that come before, however I felt like it's a story on it's own and enjoyed every part of it.

    " I absolutely loved this book. Some parts were kind of sad, and I didn't quite get the ending though the twists/surprises absolutely killed me, this was still an impressive book. I wish there were more in this series. "
