Présentation de l'éditeur

Released from Walter Reed Hospital, Sergeant Alexandra Hargreaves settles in her hometown of Denver, Colorado. With her family and friends close, and her enemies closer, she strives to collect the pieces of her shattered life.

Then things fall apart.

Haunted by the past, and terrorized in the present, Alex must reach past pain, through memory, and beyond the grave to find her self, and her future.

"The Fey is a romance for people who hate romances, a thriller for people who hate thrillers. If I'd read this on a bus, I swear I'd have missed my stop." - J. Creasey

"I love thrillers and this one ranks up there with James Patterson and Michael Palmer - K. Williams

The Fey is the first in the Alex the Fey thriller series.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting story idea but needs more style and development 28 juin 2011
Par Synic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I bought this book based on the fantastic 5-star reviews that were given on Amazon. I now realize that the reviewers must be friends of the author or do not read much. Otherwise there is no way this book would receive 5 stars.

The idea behind the story itself is pretty interesting. A strong, capable heroine who's been through the war has ticked off an enemy that is out for revenge. There's potential here for a great book. But then the story begins unfolding and unraveling, and by that I mean the story makes no sense. Character development is one-dimensional and introductions are haphazard, descriptions are incomplete, and the story has no flow. It is so rough and choppy that I fought to read it, and finally gave up.

The book never really explains why the central character is referred to as The Fey, why there is hero-worship around the character, and never truly explains the cataclysmic event that started the entire book (and please don't tell me that I need to finish the book. I would rather scrub my eyes with salt that finish this book) and its significance to the main characters. The books keeps rambling on and on and on. And I beg to differ from the person who titled the book. This is by no means a thriller. It's a thrill to finally decide not to read the book.

The way this book is written is almost script-style, as if the author intended the book to actually be a script for a movie rather than a book. If that is the case, the author/scriptwriter might have a chance at making this into a movie. There are a lot of bad movies being made, after all.

I would have given this mess of a novel one star, except that the story idea has potential. I think the author would be served well by a good editor (which I am not, obviously . . .) who could clean up and tighten the story arc.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 More Research for Accuracy Should Have Been Done 28 juillet 2011
Par jeep_gurl11 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm giving this two stars instead of one since I got it as free for Kindle. I can't completely discredit a free book.

With that said, the author should have done a lot more research on the US Military before writing this book. I realize it's fiction, so you can have women in Special Forces if you want but at least get your words right. Special Forces and Special Operations are two different entities. Special Forces is ONLY the US Army Green Berets. No one else is Special Forces. The rest (SEALs, Pararescue, Rangers, etc) are all Special Operations. As such, it is impossible for there to be an Admiral (Navy term) in charge of Special Forces (Army term). Also, if "The Fey" is a sergeant, then she cannot be an Intelligence Officer. She's either enlisted or an officer...can't have both.

This could have been a good book if the references had been correct and the flow of the story hadn't been so choppy. As it was, I couldn't even make myself finish it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Jiminy Cricket says, "Don't waste your time. Unbelievable." 29 juillet 2011
Par Nick V - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I am glad i downloaded this book for free; it is not worth paying for. Claudia Hall Christian does the craft of writing a thriller or a romance a disservice by not checking the facts. The book is neither. Two major plot points in this book are totally wrong and yet the plot and characterization hinge on them. First, no boy-girl twins can be "identical." Period. That is just genetics. Second, a coerced "marriage" of a 15-year-old Irish boy being accepted as valid by ANYONE at ANY time is totally ridiculous, on so many levels--but does allow the author to shoehorn a wedding in there, and those are fun to write and read about, right?

CHC also blatantly uses a ghost to get her story line past any sticky moments that challenge where she wants the plot to go. Can't solve the problem? Use a ghost to give you the answer. Eventually, the ghost can even interact with physical reality to get the thirsty heroine water when she is imprisoned. Ghost ex machina instead of deus ex machina.

But the book errs over and over much more minor points, such as the female officer being addressed as "sir." Not done in the US military. It was when the "good guys" parachuted into an area being watched by the Secret Service who conveniently did not see them (what, no cloak of invisibility?) that I suddenly got it. It is pointless to try to process this book as a poorly researched thriller or a wish-fulfillment romance. But may be it IS secretly a rough outline of a sequel to a female version of an Austin Powers movie, minus the intentional humor and the genetically modified sharks with lasers implanted on their heads. I wonder if Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy are contacting Disney's legal department about suing? I did finish the book so I could give it at least a one-star rating because Claudia Hall Christian is able to write a quick clear action sequence.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 It's a love hate thing ... 31 décembre 2012
Par Rhea - Publié sur Amazon.com

There is nothing better than a hot, tough chick that can kick some serious butt!! This powerful, strong, super smart, deadly force to be reckoned with of a woman is just the kind of tough chick I like to read about! Woot woot, bring it on!! I can live out my super hero fantasy through this G.I. Jane, right?

Alex, AKA The Fey is a special intelligence agent in the Green Berets. She is gorgeous, is married to hot British doctor, who after 12 years of marriage, still oodles over her lustfully. She is surrounded by soldiers who answer to her very beck and call. She has super spy stuff everywhere!! Why do they call her The Fey? Because of a tattoo of a fairy on her shoulder.

Our book opens strong with The Fey dying. Yes, that's right, she has been shot and is dying. In fact, her whole damn super duper special forces unit has been gunned down and blown up by the Arabic equivalent of Lord Farquaad. Am I sounding a little sarcastic? You bet your sweet M-16 I do! It took me over two weeks to finish this book .. and not because I was "savoring it". The best scene was the opening scene when she was about to die!! And from this point on, the book becomes mush, unbelievable, and in a lot of places packed with unnecessary boredom! Whats even more scary is the fact that this is a series.

Are there chapters in the book that are interesting and exciting? Sure! Why oh why weren't there more of THESE chapters! Would I call it a "thriller" as it is labeled? Well, maybe if it were a movie on the Hallmark channel. Take, for example, the "ghost" of her best friend who pops up to help her here in sticky situations. In one scene, where she is being held hostage, the ghost of Jesse goes outside and moves some razor wire and gutter so the rain water can go into her cell. Okay ... I'm sorry, but if Mr. Ghostman can do that ... why cant he go open the damn door and get her out of there? Just stupid little things like this that made me roll my eyes. Literally, I would roll my eyes and want to throw the book ... except it would be my kindle I would be throwing, and I love my kindle way too much!

And "the Fey" tough? Not at all. She cries every five minutes!! And if I read one more time where someone "scooped her into his arms and hugged away her pain" ... blech!! She is the weakest "tough" girl I have ever read about.

One thing I always say about movies when they come out, especially when its a favorite story I have read, "this was a great story, I hope they tell it right". I think "The Fey" is a classic example of bad story telling. It was a FANTASTIC story idea .... really craptacular story telling. Too bad, and very disappointing!

Sorry Claudia Hall Christian, but I have to give your "Fey" a strong two stars. She doesn't hold a candle to Lara Croft! Actually, if she held a candle up at Lara Croft, I have no doubt that Lara would kick the Fey's whiny Green Beret butt! This book came suggested to me by Amazon as a FIVE STAR rating, which blows my mind completely!

The book does leave me with one annoying unanswered question ... what were they looking for to begin with!!! Ugggh .. I wont be reading the second book to find out.

Thanks for reading,
"The Rhea"

Did the publisher just go straight to print with the author's rough draft??? I'm about 35% of the way through the book, but I can't take it anymore. The story is like a cake made by throwing the ingredients in a bowl, while still in all their wrappers/containers. It's a litany of bad things happening to a female military special ops person who was supposed to have gone into protective custody, but still hangs out with her old friends??? oh, and there's a bad guy...but he's more of an afterthought than an element driving the plot.

Again, I haven't finished the book. Not sure I will.
