The Leopard People Series is not my favorite but it is still very well written. Christine's descriptions of the forest can make you feel like you are there. ( )

2.5First ThoughtsDas ist mein erster Feehan-Roman und prinzipiell ist die Welt, die die Autorin erschaffen hat, relativ vielversprechend.1. Das Setting. Urwald? Da war ich noch nie. Weder "live" noch durch Bücher. Durch die Wahl eröffnen sich Feehan viele Möglichkeiten, Plots zu wahnsinnig schönen Romanen zu machen.2. Die Leopardenmenschen-Thematik. Bisher wurde nicht viel verraten, was ärgerlich ist (und mir ganz und gar nicht gefällt!), aber auch hier gibt es wieder eine Unzahl an Möglichkeiten, an Bräuchen, Sitten, Ritualen whatnot, die den Romanen das gewisse Etwas geben könnten.3. Rio. Obwohl ich kein großer Fan von ihm war, fand ich ihn irgendwie trotzdem ziemlich "niedlich". Und es ist immer gut, wenn mir der männliche Protagonist sympathisch ist!Aus mehreren Gründen gefiel mir dieses Buch aber nicht so sehr gefallen wie erhofft.1. Feehan hat den Figuren Geheimnisse egeben und auch wenn ich nichts dagegen habe, hat sie dem Leser einfach viel zu spät alles erklärt. Anstatt die Handlung spannend zu gestalten, wurde es einfach irgendwann langweilig.2. ES Fehlte das Drama zwischen dem Liebespaar. Nennt mich altmodisch, aber ich empfand das Alles als zu glatt. Sie kamen, sahen und liebten einander. Nach all dem pos. Feehan-Feedback hatte ich einfach etwas mehr Subtilität erwartet.3. Racheal war mir relativ unsympathisch. Flach geschrieben und scheinbar auch ziemlich blöd. Wenn mir fast mein Bein abgerissen wird, dann reagiere ich etwas anders. Aber da sie und Rio ja Gefährten sind.. *hust* Das macht das Ganze so viel logischer!4. Gott, ich hasse diese Rollen. Du = Frau, ich = Mann. Du = Kochen, ich = Jagen. Du in Gefahr = das schlimm. Da Gefahr! Ich laufen hin, weil ich = Mann. I guess I felt like this story could have been halved and been just as interesting. - mnrsmithTrotzdem habe ich das Gefühl, dass die Leopardenmenschen-Reihe Potential hat, letztenendes mochte ich Rio ja auch irgendwie..

I have read every book in 3 different Christine Feehan series, and she has yet to disappoint. The "Leopard People" series is every bit as good as her other series'. Feehan is a master of creating new and interesting characters and societies. In Fever, we discover the race of shape-shifting leopard-people, and learn all about their history and customs. The details are intricate and Feehan's descriptions of life within the rainforests of Borneo is simply breathtaking.

The leopard-people stories follow the same basic format as Feehan's other series': Byronic hero meets his match in a spunky, sexy heroine. But let's face it, Feehan is an expert at writing these types of stories, and has great skill in making each of her stories fresh and new. Fever offers captivating and entertaining stories, guaranteed to beguile and enthrall the reader. I am very excited to continue reading this series and to find out more about the leopard-people. ( )
