Ugh And to think this series started off great What the heck happened?The reader is yet again treated to a mess of paranormal and suspense elements that simply refuse to stick together making this book appear rather twitchy The plot is all over the place the characters from the previous books have somehow lost their sparkle Marley and Nat respectively and the effort of introducing Wazoo Nat’s “best friend” felt forced And don’t even get me started on the issue of Poppy and Sykes I’ve never read of a mismatched and not in a good way and “cold” pair of leading charactersUsually such books have at least an upside in the paranormalsuspense department Sadly this story wasn’t one of those The glimpses of what was going on around Poppy and Sykes were sporadic and dull those baddies of the Embran have lost their flair from the first book and though started as integral part of the series arc were relegated into the backdrop revisited only as an afterthoughtReally disappointing And since two “bad” books in a row already start to make a pattern I won’t visit the Court of Angels any This was interesting and entertaining but I enjoyed the second book than this one It held my attention in the beginning and I read to the end to be able to finish the trilogy The final edition in the Court of Angels trilogy is the best of them all By this time the reader has gotten the hang of the somewhat confusing paranormal world these people are living in and what their powers are Although uite a few of them develop new powers as necessary to escape the current situation which is somewhat lazy storytelling Cameron is much better at writing believable chemistry between two characters than she is writing suspense police jargon or fantasy tales The book really sizzles when focused on the burgeoning romance of Sykes and Poppy who this reader had been rooting for since the previous book It's very gratifying to see them come together What is not gratifying is the climax to the Millet family's battle with the Embran and the big reveal of the Harmony and the Ultimate Power that it holds Total letdown Cameron uses a shadowy ancestor a device she employed before in her Mayfair Suare series to much the same underwhelming effect to imply that there may be books forthcoming involving characters we've been introduced to in and around the Court of Angels While that would certainly be welcome hopefully Cameron doesn't think she needs to come up with a new supernatural threat to menace them She should really just stick to couples meeting and marrying as that's what she does best I gave this book 3 stars for several reasons; 1 Paranormal is not my main preference so I sometimes have trouble enjoying these 2 Obviously this is the third book in the series and I have not read the first two As such I was a bit confused but that's on me 3 So many aspects were left unanswered which is frustratingI do intend to read the first two books just to clarify some of the uestions I have about this one The characters of Poppie and Sykes were uite interested I was confused about Wazoo and David arrived with no closure on his character and what he can truly doMaybe there is another book after this one which I hope as I do not like reading a bookseries with so many uestions unanswered Ok so I finished all 3 books in this series cause I really wanted to know the end of this story Hate to say this but still disappointed I finally figured out what has been bugging me in all three books Detail I don't get enough detail throughout all the books I enjoyed the storyline especially the siblings with the powers and the long dead relative to watch over and guide them Not a fan of the Embran theses villains needed details written about them I found the end of this book to be a great let down Poppy Fortune has a lot to make up for First she almost sabotaged the burgeon romance between her brother Ben and his new wife Willow Even after their bonding she still didn't believe Willow had the power to match Ben's She tried to make amends but it's an impossible sin to forgive at least in her mindSykes Willow's older brother and Ben's best friend has been a thorn in Poppy's side He shows her disdain for her misdeeds but there's to his emotions than meets the eye At the first brush of their hands electricity erupts grabbing Poppy's attentionSykes remembers Poppy from years of growing up along side the Fortunes Ben's troublesome little sister But now Sykes has had his fill of Millet problems Millet destinies and Millet's mentor Jude who brought the Millet curse to Sykes shoulders Now all Sykes wants is to find a woman he can be himself with he wants what others have found Poppy brings a new realization into his life She's all grown up and enticing as everOut of Sight by Stella Cameron continues the Court of Angels Series Sykes is the oldest of the Millet children now abandoned by their parents who are searching for the answer to the curse the Millet's have endured and having left Uncle Pascal in place as the lead of the family a position that should have been Sykes by all rights He's the oldest child in the family but he's also the only one cursed Jude Millet's curse of the dark hair and blue eyes all the other Millets have the legendary red hair Sykes thinks the curse is nonsense and so does Pascal if the truth is known and Pascal would like nothing better than to turn the reins of the burgeoning family over to Sykes capable hands Pascal has his own problems to contend with including a night of indiscretion in his wayward youth But the Embran the creatures that would like to take over in this realm also have to be dealt with and it will take all the families working together to overcome the formidable foe The Embran who are gradually disseminating and infecting their host bodies It is only through finding the Harmony that the families can defeat the Embran and only Sykes has the ability that they needOut of Sight was another exceptional read from Stella Cameron who combines mystery mayhem psychic ability and a sensual romance all together in one book This is Poppy and Sykes' story Sykes the long suffering true head of the Millet family and our enduring hero and Poppy the youngest of the Fortunes deceived by her brothers into thinking she has the least of abilities and our heroine in this tale Sykes has been searching for someone to complete his life and he really doesn't give Poppy a second look as the young sister of his best friend Ben But while Sykes has been searching Poppy has grown up and come into her own Now he's having trouble denying the attraction and sparks that flow between their bodies The uestion is if Sykes takes the course laid before him by Millet mentor Jude will he ever find anyone else to fill the niche Poppy so completely fills? Will he ever locate the keys that will open the Harmony? And will the Embran take over New Orleans in the process?Out of Sight was an excellent read and I'll be looking for from Stella Cameron If you enjoy a little magical psychic ability with your mayhem

has no conscience and intends to terrorize the city into submission Sykes and Poppy must set aside old distrust and use their bonded talents to save their families themselvesand New OrleansI enjoyed these books as a series but preferred the first two books to this third one Any set of books that contain characters who have paranormal abilities but who live and function as normal people with professions who live ordinary lives in most aspects of their worlds is a series I enjoy The premises of these books that there is a race called Embrans who feel they need to destroy the Millets is not especially unusual in the world of paranormal novels but the actions and abilities of each pair of characters do surprise and delight me The concept of Millet Bonding was really fun and the struggles the women went through accepting the down side being protected by being controlled was fun to read I found this last book a little less inventive than the earlier ones but do recommend the set Out of Sight by Stella Cameron Paranormal Romance April 27th 2010 4 stars Familiar characters return in this 3rd installment of the Court of Angels paranormal series I loved the combination of paranormal and contemporary in this book Out of Sight was a fun read and I really connected to the 2 main characters and enjoyed reading about them Poppy Fortune has always felt inadeuate Her paranormal powers have always been weak and she can’t do things the rest of her paranormal family takes for granted Added to this is the guilt she feels for trying to break her brother’s relationship with the love of his life Although she had good intentions Poppy realizes the harm she could have done But trouble brews when a wealthy and influential admirer of Poppy's is accused of murder and asks Poppy for help Unfortunately he may to be connected to the Embrans their arch enemies But when Poppy tries to help him the annoyingly confident and sexy Sykes Millet keeps interfering Sykes is a powerful paranormal but his different coloring has ‘cursed’ him He hides his unhappiness from his family and keeps himself separate But the evil Embran are plotting and Sykes finds himself embroiled in trying to stop them while discovering the secret behind the mysterious keys behind Court of Angels But what worries him most is the irrepressible and wildly attractive Poppy Poppy has always attracted him but when he finds she might be in danger he is willing to bare his feeling to keep her safe I have read Stella Cameron’s historical and suspense books but found this new series complex and fascinating I really hope she continues to write books with a paranormal theme because she excels at it The only problem I had was that I read the 3rd book without having read the 1st or 2nd So while the author does a good job up keeping the new reader up to speed I felt there were nuances that I missed and sections where I wasn't sure the implications of because I hadn't read the earlier books So I would highly recommend reading the previous books What I enjoyed the most about this book was the relationship between the 2 main characters Both were extremely likeable and I felt very empathetic towards them I really felt that they had found the ‘other’ to complete them Both feel they are outcasts Sykes because of his family curse and Poppy because she lacks the ability to read minds like the rest of the paranormals Both are attracted to each other but have a difficult time verbalizing their feelings It was great when they finally were able to let their guards down and allow their mutual attraction blossom Overall I really enjoyed this book especially the genuine connection between the 2 main characters but I did feel I missed lot not having read the first 2 books and will be going out to get them This was a smooth fast read that was easy to get addicted to The only reason I didn’t grade it higher is because I feel I didn’t get as much enjoyment from it as I know I would have if I read the earlier books 1st I only hope she continues this series since there were several characters I would love have their own stories Reviewed by Steph from the Bookaholics Romance Book Club Ok for the life of me I still can uite figure out what this book was about There was defiantly a disconnect between the plot and my brain as I'm lost as to what the plot actually was As far as I can see it was about keys to the Harmony a book which will bring harmony I guess to the 7 magical families At the same time it was about a bunch of body snatchers taking the body of the a rich and spoiled 3rd wheel to the main characters relationship and framing his for murder Again this is just guessing as the whole book was a glaze over I was rather excited to read about this hero as I enjoyed his playful demeanor in the previous books and I also began to love him for his obvious bitterness about being passed over as the head of the family I liked some aspects of the heroine but also disliked some as well I really liked how mature she was Though she did snap at people and be a little bitchy at times she was woman enough to immediately apologize and attempt to her wrongs But she was stupidly naïve to the motives of the 3rd wheel She did lead him on despite what the hero says because she allowed the guy to get to the next step It's obvious he intends to marry you and the fact that she didn't immediately shut him down gave him the idea that she was playing hard to get At first the hero and heroine chemistry was nice There was obvious tension between them due to the heroine's past actions The hero actually put the heroine in a trance to stop her from seeing the 3rd wheel whom is being accused of murder but unwittingly this triggers their Bond and from there on they are attached at the hip I thought it disturbing that the hero actually slept with the heroine while she was in the trance so she was unaware of her actions but she forgave him uickly enough I think it was ok because the trance just man her aware of her true deep emotions and desires but it was still off putting to say the least I was extremely disappointed with this book It had zero substance or drive It certainly wasn't a suspense or even a murder mystery It had romance was it wasn't a very good one I'm said to say I found this entire series lackluster and rather dull to say the least But the fact that it ended on such a low note has seriously made me reconsider reading any further novels by this author This is the third novel in the Court of Angels story arc The storyline was okay though I had a hard time figuring out who or what exactly the Embran were They never were fully explained but that could be because they were probably explained fully in the first bookI enjoyed the chemistry between Sykes and Poppy and I liked the secondary characters however some of the scenes weren't uite believable Specifically one between Poppy and Sykes Poppy doesn't argue about something I think she should have raised uestions aboutOther than that the story was okay I just had a hard time connecting with it and the charactersOverall not a great read for me but I'm sure fans of Cameron's works will enjoy itDisclaimer This
