The Gathering: This ended up just being OK for me. I was excited in the beginning because it looked like ti would be a good YA fantasy. But it ended up being an angsty teen romance with some supernatural elements that don't fully get explained by the end. It ends in a cliffhanger, but I'm not totally sure I'll continue with the trilogy.
Ella the Slayer: I thought this was an interesting take on the Cinderella story. Mix in some zombies and you have a neat fairy tale. I enjoyed the story. The characters were interesting. And while the romance was kind of insta-love, They usually are in fairy tales, right? Ella was pretty kick-ass. I definitely want to read the next one to see how it all plays out.
Rendezvous with Yesterday: The second book in the Gifted Ones series, this book is Robert's story. While not my favotire of the bunch, I still enjoyed the over all story. I loved Robert and his men. There were many laugh out loud moments with them. I did like Beth, but I didn't love her at first. I think the thing that made this one drag a bit was the amount of time it took for Beth to realize she was in a different time. This author is a go to for me and I am looking forward to the next installment!
