Would you try another book from Kaylin McFarren and/or Hugh Bradley and Libby Hudson ?
I was asked to read and review Buried Threads, and since I saw it as an audiobook, I purchased a copy for myself. I enjoyed part one, Severed Threads a lot and looked forward to part two. The narration of Buried Threads is a waste of having a male and a female narrator. I think this should always be done in the format of the man reading all the male characters, and the female reading the female characters. It really throws the audiobook off when the chapter changes POV, and each narrator is reading a Chase and Rachel.<br/><br/>In Buried Threads, we pickup with Rachel heading to Japan to meet up with Chase, who is already there scouting out their latest adventure. This is pretty much where we left things at the end of book one. <br/><br/>While Buried Threads was more erotic than its predecessor, I also found it to be, to put it bluntly, ridiculous at times. There is a possessed phyco geisha, a profit/future reading monk who is very un-monk like. A hunt for buried treasure; was so utterly laughable, I was rolling my eyes most of the time. Take several Indian Jones movies, mash them together, and there you go. There’s blow darts and everything, oh yeah, and throw in some spooky ghosts. <br/><br/>Don’t get me started on the Yakuza aspect of the story, and the whole slave trade bit. I could understand it there is going to be a spin of series; we were just left hanging at the end, is there going to be a spinoff series? Because you really should give us more on what is going on with the geisha, and not leave the storyline open ended.<br/><br/>There were so many twist and turns in this story I didn’t feel like they had a cohesive flow. It was more like Kaylin McFarren wanted to divulge every bit of knowledge she could possibly gather about Japan in this story, and still try to compress it into the storyline. It left things a bit too jumbled for my tastes. Yet at the same time; I still enjoyed the overall story, and for the most part, it was very entertaining. I really love the characters of both Rachel and Chase, and I look forward to moving on the next installment Banished Threads. So overall, I am giving Buried Threads Three Stars, it was good....Sara<br/>
