I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Not sure what to think, but I know I didn't love it.

Alphas: Origins - Ilona Andrews

And that's a first for me with Ilona Andrews.


My first problem with this: It was short. And felt even shorter. Not like a real story. More a sketch.


I didn't dig the insta-something in there.


The world-building was mostly original - but in a sense, that it combines other author's original world-building (the "Alien" approach to shifters/monsters/angels, the pockets of otherland with boring pseude-scientific explanations...)


Well written, but not really great.


I am a little confused why there is no sequel to Burn, which was awesome, but this new series instead. Is it even supposed to become a series?
