    One thought on “The Society”

    1. **I received this book for free from (Publisher) via (NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Paranormal Romance*Rating* 3.0*My Thoughts*The Society is the first book in the Society series by author Lilith Saintcrow who also wrote the Dante Valentine and Jill Kismet series which I have read. This story features two entirely different characters who are brought together by a group known as The Society to fight [...]

    2. I received this book from NetGalley.I enjoy reading Lilith Saintcrow. I was looking forward to The Society quite a bit and sadly found myself disappoisocietynted. It has a terrific premise, but it wasn't executed as well as I hoped and then the big one for me . . . Well, I'll get to that in a minute. First, the book description:Will she be the Society’s salvation . . . or its downfall?The black-ops government agency called Sigma broke Justin Delgado, trained his psionic talent, and turned him [...]

    3. I don't even know why I read this book. I wanted to like it, I thought it had an interesting sypnopsis. I liked the idea of people having Psi's, special abilities that deadheads (not those, these are just normal humans with no powers) don't have. Some have telekenis, others can do other stuff that the book made you think was important but I just wasn't impressed. I don't think that there was enough development. We are told that Del is the hard guy who people fear. Really, every time he's out oth [...]

    4. My original The Society audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.Rowan has spent a lifetime hiding from herself and others.  She has hidden her secret talents away making herself almost unnoticeable until one day she meets Justin Delgado.  Delgado is an undercover operative for the Society.  He learns quickly of Rowan’s power and their strength.  He determines he must save her from Sigma, an evil black-ops government agency looking to turn her into an order obeyi [...]

    5. He's an operative so deadly that his own team members are afraid of him. She's an untrained psi with uncharted powers. Sounds like the making of a great paranormal series, right?Oh so wrong.This book starts out fast paced and never lets up, which is normally a good thing. However, what I read of this, it's an incomplete info dump from one chapter to the next. We're told Delgado is scary and feared by his own teammates, but never told why. Rowan is said to be an off-the-charts psychic with powers [...]

    6. Really poor foreshadowing about the villain, but otherwise I really enjoyed this one. Edit: Okay, so this story ends with the H/h separated due to circumstances beyond their control. Definite cliffhanger. So I went to check out the sequel and find out how the story ends, but the sequel is SEVEN FUCKING DOLLARS. For 200 pages. No way in hell. I desperately want to know what happens between Rowan and Delgado, but not desperately enough to pay that much.Second Edit: HA! A friend had a copy. I just [...]

    7. A younger Ms Saintcrow. You can already get a glimpse of future stories and writing style, if somewhat weaker. The heroine lacks the strength of her future counterpart(s), even if she is in no way a doormat (maybe bland, she is shocked most of the book). The hero is excessively brooding, and it's not that clear what his strength is. The plot is slowly paced, notwithstanding what the story tells. Beware the cliff-ending.All in all, a nice read.

    8. I for one really enjoyed this book very much and I am extremely picky when it comes to Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. So, for me to love this book as much as I did is really saying something. The concept was fantastic as well as the way it was executed. But, then I enjoy Lilith Saintcrow as an author, so I guess it's no big surprise.Admittedly, after a few chapters, I had some doubts about whether or not I would like Rowan. There were a couple of brief periods where she started to come of [...]

    9. Powerful story with beautiful cliffhangerヾ(´︶`♡)ノ The Story・*:。o○☆*゚This is an urban fantasy set in the real world. The story is about those with psychic abilities who are hunted by a special branch of the government called Sigma. These people are kidnapped, tortured, and coerced into doing their biding by using an addictive type of drug called Zed. Making those with psychic powers into weapons. The heroine in the story has known since little she was different. She considers h [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book like junk food, because it's very much a romance, but I found the story entirely unoriginal and I hated the cliffhanger ending. I did like the psychic powers, though I would have enjoyed the story more if the author had spent more time on those powers. Basic premise: There are people born with extraordinary mind powers - firestarters, mind readers, empaths, telekinetics, etc. There's a black ops untouchable government branch (Sigma) that kidnaps and drugs these people to use [...]

    11. First released in 2005, The Society was just rereleased with a new cover (ooh! Top off!). You can tell that this is one of Saintcrow's first book, before she really found her niche in the urban fantasy realm. In this story, there are two factions: one government and one rogue. The government is the bad guy here, as they drug and brainwash their psychics, rather than working with them and helping them, as the rogue faction does. Del rescues Rowan and brings her to the rogue faction -- she's suppo [...]

    12. he concept of this book was very interesting. I enjoyed the premise, and think the idea of people with psychic abilities is intriguing right off the bat. The author dived right into the story, and the action continued from there at a very fast pace. Maybe a bit too fast at the expense of character development. Too many of the characters were one-dimensional. Despite that, the book kept my interest initially and made me want to find out more about the world the author created. Unfortunately, the [...]

    13. I received a free copy of this book at my own request and I am leaving this voluntary review.SPOILERS AHEAD! I expected this to be a straight romance novel given the cover and synopsis, but I'd probably either call it an urban fantasy with heavy romantic elements or an extended romance book, where you don't get an HEA yet but it'll come in future installments. So I was mildly disappointed about that, but not enough to stop with the series. Delgado was a giant teddy bear and was a very cutely wri [...]

    14. You know how you almost absent-mindedly click on contests just for the fun of it? I actually won one, and this was my "prize." As I really enjoy audiobooks I thought I'd give it a try despite having utterly no foreknowledge of plot, genre, or anything else. Well was I delighted!If you've read the blurb you understand we are dealing with psionic powers and this tale puts us into a parallel dystopia in which the evil government agency is trying to corral and corrupt such powers to its own use, gen [...]

    15. My review is based on the Audiobook. The core story is a good one but the application is slow and tedious. I like strong characters, especially ones who overcome horrible circumstances but Rowan is just a whiney over apologetic whimp and it takes her way to long to find her strength. Delgado is supposed to be a strong operative but he becomes whipped & weak- willed way too quickly for my liking. I held hope that the story would pick up but it didn't. Rayna Cole did a magnificent job as narra [...]

    16. This is really not my kind of book. It started out okay and by the time I realized it was not what I prefer to read it was too late. Female character is flat I wanted her to grow a pair and be more independent. Male lead I just do t buy it. Obsessive about female character sleeps in a chair for months so he doesn’t have to leave her alone. And the conflict between two psi organizations is sketchy, not terribly believable. Okay so that’s what I like a good action adventure with acid I fantasy [...]

    17. This was the first book in the series I read, sometimes I like to read the second book and jump right in, but I got the first and it was worth it.The start reminded me strongly of the series firefly, but only just a little. The romance is not super bad but still a little off putting.However, the action, mystery and personalities make up for that. Its full of wonderfully dark themes.I love how realistic the shock is in this book, some stories have people pushing thru right after it happens or dra [...]

    18. This is more of a romance read. There is a bit of action and urgency to what the characters do. BUT this is a story told from the characters minds as they meet and get to know and even fall for each other through their actions.I found I slipped into their relationship and the growth of it. How they became so intimately entwined emotionally. Wow. I feel that audio really elevated this feeling for me. Lilith with the words and Rayna with the voice, together they were seductive.****FULL REVIEW***** [...]

    19. I checked The Society, book 1 of the Society series, out from my local library. I love Saintcrow's work--both adult and YA. This new series has a lot of potential, with a well-defined set of characters and an intriguing plot that can go anywhere. I've already requested the next book, Hunter, Healer, from my library, and plan to petition my library to purchase the rest of the series. Great writing, and an interesting story line.

    20. Not sure about the female characterSo here's the thing reading and listening to a book can make it 2 different stories.I first read this book about 8 year ago and really enjoyed it.I've just finished listening and part reading this book and to be honest Rowan seems weak and whiny whilst the Justin is always feeling bad about himself!!But love the romance and characters feeling I think are quite normal natural.Easy listening and read as always gotta love L.StC

    21. c2005 (19) I am very glad that I read Ms Saintcrow's later books because this one is really really dire. So bad, that I couldn't finish it at all. In Ms Saintcrow's later books, the female protagonists have some gumption (and pride) but this oneh. And the male hero, well, just as awful as the female one. My recommendation not waste money on this one but do read her later novels.

    22. This is the first book in this series, with its interesting characters and suspenseful plot, I'll be listening to the next book. It's like riding a rollercoaster following Rowen's voyage into her new life along with her mentor Delgado.

    23. I ended up really enjoying this book. The main characters were great and the story kept me wanting to read more. I haven't read a book about people with mental powers before, but I like how this one made it seem realistic and possible.I loved Delgado. Having been tortured and pretty much broken by the bad government guys, Sigma, because of what he can do, he was eventually rescued by the Society. And has become the leader's right hand man. Even so, a lot of the people around him fear him. But he [...]

    24. I'm pretty sure I read The Society when it was first released but that means I wouldn't have it as an e-book and probably passed it on for a friend to read when I reduced my book collection. I'm very glad I got the chance to re-read The Society.What I liked: Ms Saintcrow can and does come up with some pretty intriquing storylines. She just happeded to hit all my buttons with The Society. Psychics!!! I love stories about psychics; I've read just about every book I could find featuring psychics [...]

    25. Review copy provided by Publisher for review.Justin Delgado is a former government black ops Sigma operative who is now working for the Society, an organization trying to protect those with psychic abilities. Sigma's main goal is to control or wipe out anyone with psychic abilities. By chance, while on assignment, Justin comes across a very powerful untrained psychic. Rowan has no idea there is a name for her abilities, nor is she proud of them. She has hid them for most of her life. Suddenly, s [...]

    26. Fast paced, government killers and psychics makes The Society a fun read. Always a fan of Ms. Saintcrow's underdogs, Rowan Price is the latest in need of protection and sticking it to "The Man". Rowan lives a regimented life. Since she was young, she possessed powers which disturbed her. Her father did the best to help her. Still, Rowan doesn't want anything to do with it. When Rowan makes the mistake of being a good neighborhood watch person, she finds a group of "ghost" hunters instead of kids [...]

    27. ***Received a copy of this story via NetGalley for a honest review."The Society", book 1of a 2 book series, by Lilith Saintcrow was an interesting read for a urban paranormal story with a touch of romance and a heartache of a cliffhanger.Rowen Price works as a nurse and counselor at a mental facility. She tries to live as if she is normal and stay invisible all the while she believes she is a freak because of her unwanted gifts.She crosses paths with Justin Delgado who has his own deadly gift.De [...]
