    One Reply to “The Thirteenth Pillar”

    1. Was this perfect? Hell no. But I still enjoyed it like crazy.First offyou have to get past some of the wording. I think some of it would normally leave me complaining, but in this case it left me snickering. "Man Meat", "Love Nut" and others.I I was reading a contemporary orheck, just about anything else, it would have annoyed me. But somehow, when in connection to Cole, it just made me laugh and shake my head.Second thing, that normally would leave me ranting. Magic dick. Normally I complain ab [...]

    2. So-so m/m urban fantasy about an exiled sidhe now working as an NYPD cop investigating paranormal crimes. This was a frustrating read, because I like the characters and the storyline just not their awkward presentation. The sex scenes in this one read like bad amateur porn, using terms like "love nut" (for the prostate) and "almighty Johnson".

    3. 2.5 stars.To be honest, I wish this book had come without the sex scenes because the basic plot wasn't bad And it's the plot that lifts it to just barely three stars. To me, the sex scenes, particularly the first, which is only 13 pages into the book, are written like a bad porn movie, with love-nut used for the prostate (*shudder*), cocks drooling, canals were savaged, cum unloaded in the dark tunnel of an ass, accompanied by exclamations like "fucking the shit out of you" and "it's hotter insi [...]

    4. My review seems to have mysteriously disappeared. I'd originally posted reasons as to why this was probably-not, mainly that the universe is pretty much completely ripped off of Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series, with bits of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files thrown in. I'm really rather annoyed right now that my comments somehow mysteriously disappeared without my being informed.I'm going to try to not be paranoid and not say anything about how maybe my emailing the publisher caused anything.

    5. Less Camp and Chaos Than The FirstIt's only been a month since exiled sidhe Tuulois MacColewyn agreed to join the police department's newly reappointed Section Thirteen, the section dedicated to investigating crimes by or against paranormals. Though time with his new lover and partner, NYPD Inspector Joss Vallimun, is definitely one of the perks, the workload is intense and resources are few. Cole's life is becoming barely recognizable.Not only is Section Thirteen horribly overworked and wretche [...]

    6. Three Crow Press Review by OCD ReaderAfter the events of “The Thirteenth Child”, Cole, our sidhe hero, Cole has his very own sithen to call home, and he’s now a cop, a member of Section Thirteen, the unit of the NYPD that investigates the unexplainable crimes involving fae and other supernatural beings. He is also in a new relationship with the inspector Joss Vallimun, his boss.A child murderer is on the loose and the Section Thirteen team is tirelessly working to stop whoever is responsib [...]

    7. Tuulois MacColewyn, or Mack as he is knows to most humans, is a sidhe warrior. Almost 400 years old. Exiled to the mundane world by King Oberon, formerly one of Queen Titania's guard wolves, he has lived in New York since the 1920s, working first for a mob boss, then more recently as a consultant to the NYPD. Cole's work never seems to be done these days. After the events of "The Thirteenth Child", he has a new place to live, a new job - as a member of Section Thirteen, a secret unit investigati [...]

    8. 5 HeartsFirst published at MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpressOh My God… It’s here finally after waiting years and years and years… What? What do you mean it wasn’t that long ago? Well, it felt like it was years and years that I waited *pout* and honestly you should know by now I have no patience whatsoever. Anyway, back to what I was saying it’s finally here… the long-awaited sequel to The Thirteenth Child and it is just as Brilliant.Cole is back and he is just as leathe [...]

    9. 4.5 DropsThe Thirteenth Pillar picks up right where The Thirteenth Child ended, yea! To say that I love Cole and his rag-tag band of misfit detectives is an understatement. Cole, a sidhe warrior, and Joss, his human lover and boss, work together to solve a series of murders. Corhagen, another detective and Cole’s seriously repressed – so in the closet he’s probably lost forever – ex, is also part of Section 13. Sadly, he spends too much time making snide comments to and about Cole and Jo [...]

    10. I am really enjoying O’Faolain’s urban fantasy/romance series, Section Thirteen. The first book, “The Thirteenth Child,” was a solid urban fantasy with some romantic elements. This book has a strong romance as a subplot to the mystery. The mystery is very well-developed, with some great surprises. But readers should know that this installment has many more graphic sex scenes, and erotic undertones than the first book. That made it all the better for me.Cole is a very likeable hero, that [...]

    11. I enjoyed The Thirteenth Pillar rather more than the first book of the series, The Thirteenth Child. Perhaps it was just that I now knew J.L. O'Faolain's characters and world a bit better, so what was happening was a bit more understandable from the beginning of the book. Also, I learned how to pronounce Cole's first name, something that was lacking in book one. There are still loads of Irish spellings I've no idea how to say though, and would very much have appreciated a glossary.The plot was h [...]

    12. This is a better book than the previous - the author has moved from the influence of Jim Butcher and started making something of her/his own. There is still something that bothers me about these books and I can't really pinpoint what it is - maybe the fact that I have connected more with secondary characters than with Cole or Joss or that some of the connections between the events were not sufficiently explained. James is still a prick, though not as much as before. I am glad Cole is with Joss t [...]

    13. 3.5 starsA lot better than the first book in my opinion. It flowed a lot better and there was a good amount of romance. I was a bit bothered that Joss lost his arm and was out of commission for a good part of the story but the ending pretty much fixed that issue. The sex scenes had some corny dialogue but it being a bit explicit you could probably skim over it if it's just not your thing. Cole confessing his love to Joss was a bit too soon I think. They've only been dating for a month and it fel [...]

    14. This a fun and captivating series I love the plots the characters are amazing and I really fell in love with some of them. The plot is always there you never get confused like you do in some stories but never obvious I really enjoyed this book and if you need a comparison I believe The Merry Gentry series by LKH or October daye series by seanan McGuire though with a m/m twist to it and I personally thought there was more to this story then those I truly enjoyed this book and child that is my per [...]

    15. The second book in the series, this one has even more twists then the first. The mystery is intriguing, the fae involved are interesting and Cole is collecting quite a motley crew to surround him. Great story.The sex parts made me snigger like a 12 year old boy at times, mostly due to word choice. But Joss and Cole are great characters. I am excited to read the next installment as this book ends with quite a bit that needs to be done!

    16. Great sequel to the first book. Same playing with words and motifs from popular culture/myths/legends. The story is tightly connected to Thirteenth Child and shouldn't be read separately.

    17. This 2nd book in the series didn't really work for me. SueM's review pointed out some aspects I had trouble with.
