See a Problem?
A giant wing hidden in the creek. Screams in the dead of night. Every oddity seems connected to their strange - and alarmingly attractive - new neighbors, led by the stormy-eyed Navan. When the road forks, how do you know which path is the right one? Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law.
Half vampire, half mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. My name is Jemma Blackburn, and I have a secret. I know vampires are real. I watched one murder my father eight months ago, and even though they tried to convince me it didn't happen - that I'd lost touch with reality due to the trauma, I know what I saw was real. Hollow Hills is now the place I call home. It was supposed to be my chance at a normal life.
About how Peter felt about Alice, what he was thinking, how much he loved her, etc etc. But most of it was repetitive and sometimes a little irritating. I get that he loved Elise but did people really drone on like that back in the day? It did explain some things like Ezra's and Peter's past as well as how Mae and Jack came in and I enjoyed that. I guess I was looking for more detail. And Elise's death seemed kind of abrupt and poorly handled by the characters and thus the author.
It didn't give me closure like I'd hoped for so I'm praying for book 5. There was also a HUGE error in the story, well, in my opinion. There's one part where he's writing to Elise and he writes "Elise" instead of "you" - and he wasn't addressing her, he was writing about her. That frustrated me and threw off the story for the time being. I just felt like it messed with the flow and left me a little disconnected.
I had to stop reading and then go back. Also, was anyone else confused by the ending? Is Peter planning on becoming a vampire hunter with Alice and killing Gunnar and his pack? Finally, if you've read the whole series I would recommend reading this novella and do what I did - wait until you've read all four of the series before reading this.
I know it sounds like I didn't like this, I did. If she can wrap up this series nicely it makes the whole thing worth reading for sure. IF you have completed the "mba" series and want to go on to learn more about the history of ezra's family, this is the book. I have read this series at least a half a dozen times since I bought it in January!
I love Jack and Alice together, but also am drawn to Peter. But ultimately I do believe that Jack and Alice are the perfect couple! I am a fan of the Vampire Diaries books and Twilight books and I must say this series blows them out of the water! I cannot say enough about this series!
If you haven't read it yet- I highly recommend it!!!
Letters to Elise: A Peter Townsend Novella (My Blood Approves)
The only complaint I have is that the book Wisdom the 4th series isn't available on Kindle and I had to order it I really wish Amanda would come out with the final book of the series titled Swear, but from what I hear that may be a long time before it is released, if at all, according to her website. But in the mean time I recommend to anyone who loves a great vampire love story- read all the books in the series My Blood Approves, Fate, Flutter, Wisdom AND Letters to Elise - all those books in this series are great!
One person found this helpful. Letters to Elise by Amanda Hocking is the perfect novella: This novella tells Peter's story, starting in the mid 's and spans the globe from New York City, U. During the span of time he serve in the U. The story is told by letters, some mailed, some not. A beautiful romance unfolds in the beginning of the book. It's one of the most beautiful, pure romances I've ever read, I think. Then, as happens in stories and in life tragedy strikes and the theme changes to grief, loss, and, in a strange way to unrequited love.
I really enjoyed reading this novella.
I had not sampled Amanda Hocking's writing before this but I am now anxious to read the series of which it is a part. See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 8 months ago. Published 1 year ago. At least now you can understand how hes stepped back in My Blood approves, he thinks he isnt capable of giving his heart to another or hurting jack but thats not to say he doesnt still feel for Alice hes just putting Jack 1st.
I think i love him more now than i did before, such a hidden depths kind of man and no offence Jack but he deserves Alice! I am not sure what to say about this Maybe some things are better left to our imaginations. I would maybe have liked this better if it had just been a short story instead of trying to cram all of it into letters. For me the content didn't translate well in letter form. When you write a letter, the person you are writing to knows what you are writing about.
You don't I am not sure what to say about this You don't need to describe scenes in detail to someone who was actually there when they happened. That's why I think this would have been much better as a short story. I think that the Peter fans will most likely want to read this, but will they still like him as well after they ready it? I've read some other Amanda Hocking books and I really liked those, but this was a little hard for me to get through and I didn't feel any connection with it at all.
Letters to Elise (My Blood Approves, book ) by Amanda Hocking
It was sad to read about Peter's longing and sadness due to the death of his beloved Elise. I did however, like that it showed the brotherhood between Ezra and Peter and how they relied on each other for their existance and will to carry on. It was just an okay read for me and glad it was just a Novella. I don't think I could have read on if it were any longer. I was really looking forward to a book that gave another story about a character I love from the the "My Blood Approves" series, and this just wasn't it.
It was interesting to read parts of it, but I felt over all the story lines were underdeveloped. Maybe my expectations were skewed from from I should have had, but this book didn't grant the same "satisfaction" I got from reading the series. View all 3 comments. Mar 20, texxie-PRUFreads. This is the "My Blood Approves" novella featuring "Peter". First, let me say, in this series, Jack, Peter's "brother" is my favorite. The reader gets to know Peter a bit better, know what's in his head, heart and soul.
I'm not ashamed to say I broke out in tears a couple of times as well. Aww I love Peter! My heart breaks for him. It was interesting to see a different side to both Peter and Ezra. I enjoyed reading about Mae, Jack, and Alice too. View all 9 comments. So good I went back and read it because in was reading the last book in the series and it was even better this time. May 28, Sophie rated it it was amazing. Aug 16, Zsofia rated it it was amazing. Jan 23, Lynn rated it really liked it.
Mmmh, I'm not really sure what to think about it. It's good, and explained many things, but it was really weird. Originally posted on A Book and a Latte: I really liked Peter and was fascinated with his character when I read the first three books in the series a couple of years ago. So I enjoyed learning more about Peter through his letters that he writes to his first love, Elise, before and after her death. The letters he writes to Elise over the years takes you through how they met, their relationship, and how he felt once she died.
The letters also touch on existing through the famine, and how he fought in all the wars.
You also learn about his relationship with his maker Erza, and how they are bonded. My favorite thing about this novella was getting the backstory on how Erza, Peter, Mae, and Jack became a family. It was satisfying to learn how they all came together — fans will not be disappointed! I listened to the audiobook of Letters to Elise, which is narrated by Hannah Friedman. I really like her voice; she has a great tone and nice inflection. I eventually got over this, and enjoyed the audiobook.
I have to say, any man in touch with his emotions would weep from a love letter from Amanda Hocking.
Letters to Elise
She is amazing at writing love letters. They are so touching and captivating. I've always felt for Peter. You can just tell that his life has been hell and that he's been though a lot. Losing your lover and feeling their death the exact moment they were dying while you are so far away in another country is an extremely sucky thing to go through.
I know that his pain and heartache was I have to say, any man in touch with his emotions would weep from a love letter from Amanda Hocking. I know that his pain and heartache was unbearable. I felt it in his words. The love he has for Elise is the kind of love that every woman wants to be given. It seriously takes your breath away. Its so passionate and unconditional. It was weird how close Peter and Jack were at one point because you never saw that in the series. I laughed picturing Peter running into the room to see what was wrong with Jack only to find him sobbing in front of the TV to a music video.
Jack was so silly. That's something I have missed since his relationship with Alice in the series. June 10, Peter wrote Elise of his love for Alice and his search to avenge her death. I feel closer to Peter now. I've grown to like him more than Jack. He's so selfless and romantic, I know he's stealing more hearts than just mine and Alice's. Letters to Elise En este corto libro nos explican la vida de Peter narrada por medio de cartas. Elise muere y una parte de Peter muere con ella. I think Hocking is better suited to short stories. This one was better than either books 3 or 4 of the main series.
Saying that, it was still only "ok. I had actually liked Ezra. Obviously everyone goes through that "teenager pushing the limits" phase, but Ezra was the "father figure" - did we really need to be told about him havi I think Hocking is better suited to short stories. Obviously everyone goes through that "teenager pushing the limits" phase, but Ezra was the "father figure" - did we really need to be told about him having threesomes with bloodwhores?
I don't mean to sound prudish, but I just don't think it was necessary. It was nice to meet Elise, I suppose. And it was good to get a little more explanation for the why behind Peter trying to hate Alice when they all thought she was "meant for" him. But, it still doesn't quite make sense. Peter and Elise were destined. Ezra and Mae were destined. Yet, somehow, even while still humans, Jack and Alice were destined. Peter said himself that Jack couldn't have been destined for Alice because she was still human.
