Présentation de l'éditeur

Vampires, werewolves, magi and worse--the Others have joined the mortal world, and there's no turning back now . . .

As a New York P.I. and Other specialist, Shiarra Waynest has been in plenty of trouble before. But waking up in a windowless room the prisoner of a vampire slave trader is a shock for anyone. Shia has her wits, her bravado, and a couple of used staples, so maybe she can take on a mansion full of serious evil.

But although she's desperate to escape, Shia needs some answers too. Her friends are in danger. There are betrayers and spies among them. And even if she can figure out what's going on and somehow get a message out, she's still a captive of the worst kind. . .

"It doesn't get much better for pure urban fantasy than Jess Haines." --All Things Urban Fantasy

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Hit & miss for me 1 juillet 2014
Par Jen (Red Hot Books) - Publié sur Amazon.com

I really wanted to love this book. I have enjoyed previous installments in the series and some of the things I liked about those books, work in this one as well. Specifically, I enjoy the voice of the heroine, Shiarra. She is a good person, trying to make the best of a volatile world that constantly puts her in danger. In book after book, she faces monsters with many different faces, while trying to come to terms with the changes inside of her. Shia and the latest danger she faces with the Others take center stage in an even more intense way, but there were some elements of the book that didn’t hit the mark for me the way I had hoped. I’ll get back to that in a minute.

As the story begins, Shia is in the clutches of an old enemy, the vampire Max. He has utter and complete control over her in a way that is difficult to read at times. And it lasts for more than half the book. We see Shia struggle to keep hold of her free will, when her body is at his mercy. This part of the story felt like it went on too long. I didn’t enjoy so much page time devoted to her subjugation and torture. But once she makes it out, I felt like the book really started to pick up.

I felt like the events surrounding her escape and the subsequent face-off with Max were great. There was great action and a fantastic climax. The fights were well choreographed and exciting to read.

Another plus: the new secondary characters. I was fascinated by both the powerful Iana and the frightening Kumiho. They helped flesh out the story, which was otherwise very narrowly focused. I think fans will also appreciate that we finally learn what Other-ness is lurking inside of Shia, herself, and what that means.

And then there was Royce. I feel like he’s been sitting on the fringe of the last two books… more of an outside entity than a real player. I feel like perhaps we’re supposed to see the dichotomy between him and Max and get all swoony with him. But honestly, I just wasn’t feeling it. Shia needs to stay wary of him. His pretty words and sex appeal aren’t enough for me to overlook his choices with her in the last two stories. Not just sending her away in Forsaken… but what happens when she calls him for help here. Am I the only one not ok with this?

I dunno. I just didn’t leave feeling good about what’s happening between them, and I felt like I was supposed to. I think I would have been happier with an ending that didn’t have Royce whatsoever.

So overall, the pacing was kind of hit and miss. And despite her constant self-doubt, I do like Shia’s loyalty and spirit. But it wasn’t my favorite in the series. And it’s hard to see where the author can take it next.

Rating: B-

4.0 étoiles sur 5 In the end, Shia got her man 23 janvier 2015
Par RabidReads - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This installment was TAKEN BY THE OTHERS 2.0 with the same overall premise, but without the secondary plot threads to lessen how messed up this series’ lead antagonist really is in addition to a few other differences as the title suggests. In this novel the distinction between a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ vampire became glaringly evident as the story took on a ‘better the devil you know’ vibe. The six book long arc came to a close which left me feeling like this might be the last of Shiarra Waynest’s shenanigans; it’s been nine months since this title was released, and nothing new has been announced.

The H&W INVESTIGATIONS universe has primarily revolved around blood suckers, and werewolves; however ENSLAVED BY THE OTHERS brings a couple of new supes to the field, and I still haven’t managed to figure out what one of them was based Jess Haines’ clues. I’m hoping that there will in fact be a seventh installment because I NEEDS TO KNOW what’s up with Iana! The second Other we hooked up with was Soo-Jin Kumiho, a Kitsune demon fox with 9 tails, so after that little diddy, plus all of the hints with regards to the former’s true nature, I’m thinking she’s something pretty spectacular.

Just when I thought the darkest novel in this series was behind me, I crack this baby open only to discover that this author’s previous horrors don’t even begin to scratch the surface. The blurb mentions a slave trader, so that gives you a good indication of the level of depravity you can expect from this story. We learn how the vampire named Mouse became mute after she was immortal, needless to say that it takes a special kind of monster to mutilate a being that can heal almost anything. And, that’s merely one example of many. Yeah, this book’s f#@%ed up.

Royce’s character was shelved once again which was a downer because I really wanted him to go mano e mano against Shia’s jailer instead of pulling his minions’ puppet strings from a distance. We did get Arthur and Sara though which was a minor consolation. The ending satisfied in an it’s about time kind of way; I was happy that Waynest accepted what Alec had to do without protest, and finally acknowledged that her boy toy has been on her side since their first meeting. I’d be ok if this series concluded here, although there’s definitely still room for it to expand.

ENSLAVED BY THE OTHERS wasn’t pretty, but in the end Shia got get man.

Enslaved By the Others, Jess Haines
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I mentioned in the review of the last book how this series was one of the first fantasy reads for me, and I'd not really got “with it” with book one, but then read the fourth and loved it – except for that dammed cliff-hanger. I HATE those..but finally we've the next book and we dive straight in with Shiarra being a captive in Max' home.
I like Shiarra, and that's important to me to like the main characters. Its mostly her in this book, trying to escape Max and get back to Royce. She's pretty inventive and has several attempts which annoy and frustrate Max intensely. He's hoping to bring her to his side, but vastly underestimates her determination.
Its a riveting read, full of Others, action, battles and slayings. Shiarra meets some new Others who are Max' captives, and as usual promises to help them too even when she doesn't know if she can trust them. That's here nature, if she sees an injustice she has to step in – its why Royce loves her and she brings a bit of morality to his life. Others live such long lives that its a common thread through the genre that they lose their sense of morality over time, and view humans and anyone different to themselves as unimportant. I love Nalini Singh Angel series, and that's one of the things Raphael says about Elena, he's very, very old and she brings back some of his sense of morality – I think he says something like “you make me a little more mortal” though he's talking about physically as well as morally. Royce looks at things differently since he met Shiarra too.
I was interested in meeting the new Others, and finding out what they could do. Like Shiarra was feeling I was aware that there's that sense of how far can they be trusted, will they really help when push comes to shove, or will they just take the best option for themselves and double deal her? There's lots of surprise for and about Shiarra in this book. I was sad we didn't see more of Royce – he's such a great lead, and hopefully the next book might feature him more though we did get a hot and sexy up-close interlude at the end :-)
Overall a great read, one for keepers, ties up last book neatly and no damn cliffhangers!
Stars: Five, great read, full of surprises and one to keep and a series that I’d happily re read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The excruciating wait for ENSLAVED BY THE OTHERS was so worth it. 5 juillet 2014
Par Urban Fantasy Investigations - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The excruciating wait for ENSLAVED BY THE OTHERS was so worth it. It picks up right where FORSAKEN BY THE OTHERS left us with that horrible cliffhanger and it's immediately clear that the trouble Shia finds herself in is much worse than anything she has dealt with so far.

Shia is once again at the mercy of Max. She quickly finds out exactly what kind of business he is now conducting and starts plotting her escape. I don't want to get to much into what happens while in the "care" of Max but I found her "company" rather interesting. Some things happen with this other captive and the questions it leaves us with I assume will be a big part of the next book. Sara is also in captivity and although they are not kept together, Max uses Sara against Shia and we find out what is happening with her throughout their time there. I really missed Royce and Arnold. They make an appearance at the end but I really want to see the whole gang together again.

As you can imagine there is a lot of action in ENSLAVED BY THE OTHERS. The suspense is off the wall and I liked the addition of a new character that is dangerous but I can tell is a new 'friend' that I think Shia will need in the future. I enjoyed this addition to the H&W Investigations series. I am hopeful that the whole gang will be featured in book 8 and I am also hoping that Shia and Sara will do some investigating again.

I checked this book out from my local library. A really good continuation of the series. I love the advancement of the plot and the resolution. This could easily end the series, or be a breather before a new plot thread. Well done.
