    1. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.It’s an unspoken rule that every series has to have one blah installment, and unfortunately for H&W INVESTIGATIONS, this was it. Jess Haines’ engrossing writing style was still present, but FORSAKEN BY THE OTHERS was minus the tall glass of action that I’ve become accustomed to, the love interest was mostly a no show, and Shia’s ultra-cool mofo rep took a lickin’ which all lead to this book’s stepping stone like quality. The cliffhanger ending only served [...]


    2. SpoilersMeh. The main reason it was rubbish was the dumb, annoying and frustrating characters.-I hated Shiarra. She was such an insufferable, thick, selfish cow of a heroine. The silly cow kept putting herself and Sara in danger for no fucking reason. How the hell was she even a private investigator?! She was such a bloody idiot.-Shiarra's change in attitude bugged me. She went from hating and fearing vamps/wolves/Others to sleeping with them and making excuses for them. I would have preferred a [...]


    3. Royce wants Shia and Sara to temporarily relocate to LA. Tension is high and Royce feels it will be better for Shiarra if she “disappears” until things cool down. Royce makes arrangements for Shia and Sara to stay with an associate that “owes him one”. His associates name is Clyde.Clyde instantly starts playing vampire games and even though Shia tries to show him she’s got her own bite, he doesn’t seem to care. Clyde ultimately finagles, Sara and Shia into an investigation that just [...]


    4. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyThe H&W Investigations series has evolved over the past five books. In a way it’s become lighter, more wacky. The focus in FORSAKEN BY THE OTHERS is less on the relationships and mythology, and more on the mystery of a black mage raising zombies in LA. There’s a lot of foot work as Shia and Sara question seemingly half the city in their investigation. I could have done with a little less chatting and a little more action, but considering this is [...]


    5. 3.5Let's start with the bad: cliff-hanger alert. If you hate cliff-hangers, be forewarned. If you read this book, you'll hate them with twice the strength.I can't explain how much I hate I'll have to wait for 14 months (at least) for the sequel. Sigh.Now, all the rest. If you are reading H&W5 or thinking about it, you are a fan of the series. So you're already hooked to the peculiar light and dark theme this UF series has. This is my idea of a lighter theme, this is what it should be: witty [...]


    6. ARC was acquired via NetGalley.(`・ω・´)Enjoyment level (how much I enjoyed the book): 7/10Execution (writing style, wording, etc): 7/10Story (how much I enjoyed it): 8/10Characters (how much I enjoyed them): 8/10Grammar/Spelling/Usage annoyances (inverted scoring): 8/10Total score: 38/50 --> 4 stars(`・ω・´)First off, I abhor cliffhangers, mainly because a cliffhanger usually causes me to agonize for a period of time until something takes my mind off it over what will become of t [...]


    7. In this latest edition to the H&W Investigation series we fall straight into the action. The bedroom action that is… va-va-voom. Well who wouldn’t want to end up in bed with Royce buck naked?!? Yes please! It only took four books for them to finally stop staring at each other with puppy dog eyes and make with the dirty. Not that being a blood whore is attractive, but for Mr. Alec Royce? Maybe. That’s all I’m saying.“Giving in to me isn’t a crime. Liking the things I make you feel [...]


    8. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Shiarra Waynest is a private investigator who has made enemies with both humans and Others in the town she lives in. So to keep herself and her best friend safe they relocate to California for a while. Unfortunately, Shia seems to be a magnet for trouble. As soon as they arrive in Los Angeles they are asked to find someone who is controlling zombies and making them kill vampires. Will Shia and her friend Sara make it out of Los Angeles in on [...]


    9. Shiarra is free from the influence of the belt and now can see what has happened to her life. Her hasty decisions, skewed judgement, anger and fear has left a lot of wreckage behind, a trail of victims and even some deaths. It’s an uncomfortable realisationAlmost as uncomfortable is finally coming to terms with the fact that Royce isn’t the bad guy and that it’s ok to let him into her life, that’s going to take some getting used to.But now there’s a lot of fallout from the most recent [...]


    10. *Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*Thoughts*If you haven't read the H&W Investigations series by Jess Haines yet, you really should. I'm not saying this just because I've hosted Jess on my blog several times (including June 15), or the fact that I've met her in person (Olde Town, New City) or the fact that she's one of the nicest people you will meet and actually takes time to chat with folks on Twitter.No, I'm saying this because the H&W Investigation series has really caught it's grove [...]


    11. Review from Backchatting BooksThe concept behind "Forsaken by the Others" was intriguing but I found the execution a little lacking. Royce sends private investigator Shiarra West and her sidekick Sara to Los Angeles for their own protection. Clyde, the vampire looking after them, demands they investigate a zombie infestation within his territory. He won’t however give the ladies the tools they need to track down the necromancer properly and seems to know much more than he is letting on.Shia is [...]


    12. Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. Shiarra knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head and neck. And now a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who'd like to turn her into a chew toy. On Royce's "suggestion", Shia and Sara temporarily relocate to Los Angeles. But something is rotten (literally) in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. W [...]


    13. This is one of my favorite paranormal series! I fell under the spell of Jess's writing in book one and she has had a hold on me with every other books.Forsaken does not disappoint. It is just as good as the other books in the series. It is a great continuation of the story and really pulls you right back in.Forsaken is really a great, intense, action packed, read. I love the characters that Jess has created. The world that Shia lives in is complicated and confusing at times. She has suffered the [...]


    14. I'm really sorry about not liking the book, because the first 4 in the series were totally ok and I'm acquainted with Jess, who is a darling. But I just can't get over Shiarras insecurity and angst and stupidity Yes, she had to go through a lot of stuff, but instead of growing stronger and maturing and learning to deal with crises (which obviously are going to happen ALL THE TIME to her) she just gets more and more angsty and whiny, having mood swings and being paranoid I couldn't even finish [...]


    15. I was hoping that Shiarra would wise up after she no longer was under the influence of the belt, but she continues to make stupid, impulsive decisions that harm others and fails to see simple things that could help her (like buying a throw-away phone and charger, calling Royce, and asking some questions about the players in LA).Sigh. The fact is, Shiarra is slipping all too close to TSTL territory. I know I ought to be worried about the cliffhanger at the end of the book, but the way things have [...]


    16. I saw this title on NetGalley and requested it. Yesterday I received an email from NetGalley approving me. I was busy and it was late, so I didn't download it right away. Today when I logged into NetGalley to download it and send it to my kindle I wasn't able to. It says that the title has been archived by the publisher and that it's no longer available. I'm seriously pissed. They didn't even give me 24 hours to download it and read it. I would have loved to read it and post a review. Now I'm ju [...]


    17. Forsaken by the Others has breathed some new life in this series. I was rather disappointed by the turn of events in the last book, but Forsaken has returned Shia to her roots as private investigator, while highlighting her new-found strength. Toss in a compelling cliffhanger and you have me waiting in anticipation to see how everything turns out in 2014!


    18. I was lucky enough to be an advance reader and I think this was my favorite book in this series by Jess Haines! Lots of action and different paranormal characters in this one. It takes place in the Los Angeles area and since I am a "Californian" I enjoyed reading about all the shenanigans taking place in my neighborhood.


    19. I was curious to see what Shiarra would do after everything that happened in the last book.No surprise it very complicated for her.It was a nice reading. Shiarra still does mistakes and acts without thinking of consequences but she seems to be learning her lesson.The last chapter is well made. I'm curious to read the last installment in the series :)



    20. Title: Foresaken By The OthersSeries: H&W Investigations Book #5Author: Jess HainesGenre: Romance/Sci-Fi FantasyBlurb: The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with he mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem…Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most [...]


    21. Forsaken By the Others (H&W Investigations) Jess Haines ARC supplied by Netgalley for honest review. I love urban/dystopian fantasy especially if it has a bit of romance in it. I'd read the first in this series when I originally stumbled on the genre a couple of years back when I ordered what I thought was a historical novel and it turned out to be fantasy. Previously I’d never read this genre, assuming it was all Star Trek or middle earth Elves wrong I was! Anyway I didn't enjoy the first [...]


    22. Book #5 of the series picks up right where we left off. Shia wakes up with Royce & an ocean of regret. She hasn't taken his blood so it's not final but she's pretty much "a legally bound & contracted vampire's toy".But she is back to herself, without the belt, and the ramifications of all she's done in the past month are hitting her hard. At least 4 different groups are gunning for her & her father has basically said don't call us, we'll call you.At least Royce has brought Sara to th [...]


    23. 3.5 Stars.Forsaken by the Others is not a book that reads as a standalone. People who pick it up should most definitely be up to date and ready to jump right in. It starts right from where Stalking the Others ends. If you have not read any of the other books in the H&W Investigations series…Do Not Pass Go. Turn right around and get caught up first. I apologize right from the start. This might be a spoiler and trust me I’m not a fan of them, but you can read any other review and it was sa [...]


    24. Mon avis en FrançaisMy ENglish reviewI was looking forward to the release of this fifth volume especially when we know that we have zombies here. I was really curious to see how Jess Haines would be able to bring them up into the story. Okay I admit that was not all, and I was impatient to see what the relationship between Shia and Royce would become after such a purpose! Yes, we were waiting for this change for a long time and I was curious to see what would happen next.From the beginning of t [...]


    25. Forsaken by the Others is an action-packed novel filled with mystery and intrigue. Shia has gone from worrying about keeping her PI agency afloat to dealing with vampire politics and all the Others in New York who would love to tear her to pieces. Rather unwillingly for someone whose life is in mortal danger, Shia relocates to Los Angeles temporarily with her good friend and fellow PI Sara. Being a woman of action, however, Shia can't stay still and finds herself investigating a case of zombies [...]


    26. Shia is formally with the vampire, Royce now. Before they can get too cuddly, Royce is forced to ship her off across the country to lay low with the vampire of L.A. Shia leaves with her best friend Sara, but instead of finding safe harbor they are forced to deal with Clyde, the vampire of L.A.’s problems, namely his zombie problem.Forsaken by the Others is the fifth book in the H&W Investigations series. I would recommend reading the books before this one, although it isn’t fully necessa [...]


    27. I'll admit it. I was really worried that Royce was going to abandon Shiarra after the way the last book ended. Things were a little too good to be true there. Add that to the title of the book (I was expecting some forsaking to go down.) Add that to the fact that Jess Haines has sucker punched me before, and well, it seemed like a lot of heartbreak would be inevitable. Shows what I know.The story picks up right where the last one left off with Shiarra in Royce's bed. Buyer's remorse is kicking i [...]


    28. This is the fifth book in the H&W Investigations series and the first book I have read from this series or author. There was enough backstory that I never felt lost or left out, and it wasn’t overkill so those who are already fans of the series won’t feel like the story isn’t moving forward. The book picks up right where the last one left off with Shiarra and Royce in bed. The love scene’s are hot and I’m sure those that are fan’s of Royce won’t be disappointed. However, as soo [...]


    29. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the last few. I felt like it was very jarring to just suddenly find Shia whisked away to the other side of the country on a loose, flimsy basis, away from Royce and the interest we all are waiting to see what develops there. It's like just as they have a chance to be togetherM! She's off to California.And then one she's there, it felt off. Forced and filler to keep her busy. Seabreeze isn't a loyal friend of Royce so why did he put her with him? And shouldn't S [...]
