    1. 1 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2014/07/25/bIt always pains me to write a negative review, especially for a book I had high hopes for and had looked forward to so immensely. As mythical or legendary creatures go, harpies don’t get near enough attention in fantasy, and I was very excited to see a novel feature them with such prominence and with a background that sounded so incredibly fascinating and unique. Unfortunately, I couldn’t enjoy this book. I try to look at the big pi [...]


    2. If honest I've never read a story that featured a male harpy before and the fantasy cover caught my eye. I had to put aside any preconceived ideas about harpies because the ones here are most certainly nothing like the ones from myths . No they are surprisingly gentle, timid creatures and yet the golden harpy is fierce and a born leader. Fantasy, greed, lies, love and very odd science all come together in this story but unfortunately the characters and the appalling portrayal of cliches meant I [...]


    3. This book is not for me.The first things I noticed were some racial stereotypes, such as the Hispanic housekeeper named Maria and the old Indian mentor named Charlie. On a new planet, I would expect a different, unique societal organization - not a repeat of these stereotypes that come from 19th and 20th century America. Secondly, the harpies seem over-simplified - as gentle creatures misunderstood and persecuted by humans because they have pretty feathers and cannot speak human languages. Yes, [...]


    4. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/I put this book down at around 24% and could not pick it back up again. Typically, when a book doesn't connect with me I'll skim a lot to get through it so I can at least put up a review that represents the whole book (some books really do get better later). But the problems I had with this book were from the writing rather than just the plot (such as it was) and therefore not something that was going to change.First and foremost, th [...]


    5. I have mixed feelings about this book. So much so that I don't believe I can put a star rating on it because my emotions while reading would often completely change from one chapter to the next. I will say that upon finishing it I was happy with the book, and I felt compelled to keep reading pretty much the entire time (except for the very beginning.)I think the biggest issue for me with Flight of the Golden Harpy is the author's writing itself. I've general found that if the reader is aware the [...]


    6. I would like to thank NetGalley & Tor Books for granting me a copy of this e-ARC to read in exchange for an honest review. Though I received this e-book for free that in no way impacts my review.Kari, a young woman, returns to her jungle planet of Dora after ten years in Earth’s schools and is determined to unravel the mysteries surrounding the harpies, a feral species half-bird, half-mortal. The residences of Dora believe the harpies are dangerous game animals and hunt them for their trop [...]


    7. I was very intrigued by the premise of this book, but I wasn't overly impressed by its execution:-the plot seemed to drag a bit (I do realize that it's tricky for writers to not gloss over something like torture, but also not to dwell on it)-the characters were somewhat 2D (e.g her father's character)-the rape scene (while I understand its role in changing the behavior of Shail, I think the same thing could have been accomplished by repeated beatings)-it would have been nice to know what happene [...]


    8. eArc from NetGalley -I really wanted to like this book. The cover is amazing looking and hey HARPIES! But nope. It just weirded me out. The characters to me had no depth - and it tried to hard for easy answers to why did X happen Etc. add in the token plot of the MC being half harpy (Saw that one coming).


    9. This has become my new favorite sci-fi book! The characters are interesting and well developed. The lore of the Harpies is well identified and played out to perfection. I think the ending was fantastic!



    10. Honestly I tried not to use a lot names and major scenes; just in case those of you who still wish to read it wont be totally ruined for reading this reveiw, as possible. So I call them by their role instead of their name. SO please do read this and tell me what you think I would enjoy the feedback. Oh and if you catch an error please tell me. :') EnjoyOkay this book is certainly not for the light hearted or people that have an unrealistic veiw of human nature. First off it is true that Klaus hi [...]


    11. *I received this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*Initially, I was drawn in by this stunning cover and now I also know that it fits the novel so perfectly well. Flight of the Golden Harpy was a very interesting book. I thought the concept was convincing yet the book itself a little bit too long. Kari has always been a child of the Dorian jungle. After her ten years of exile on Earth, she finally returns to Dora and the golden harpy boy that has once saved h [...]


    12. So think of the planet as Jurassic Era Earth with angels flying around. The angels are called harpies, and they are considered to be extremely dangerous. They kidnap and rape women regularly, at least according to rumors. Flight of the Golden Harpy has an interesting world, and it was definitely my favorite part of the book. I could read descriptions about it for days.Enter Kari, our main character. She is saved by a golden harpy when she is a child, the most reclusive of the harpies. Her father [...]


    13. 2.0 out of 5 stars A Political Statement, July 18, 2014This review is from: Flight of the Golden Harpy (Kindle Edition)This book was just one big statement on animal cruelty/anti-hunting using the guise that animals have emotional feelings like humans do. At least this was my impression on this book. I couldn't see any other point to it. Many other authors try to get away with this type of orating and it doesn't usually work out too well for themI hope it works better for Ms. Klaus.This may have [...]


    14. While the world building is intriguing and the characters are interesting, there were several issues that kept me from enjoying this book. While it is subtle and not overly done, there are several point of view changes within chapters that bothered me. There is also a hint at bestiality and when I came to not one, but two violent and very detailed rapes over two-thirds of the way through the book, I could not go on. That said, I believe some may truly enjoy this story for its world-building and [...]


    15. Review published at Bitches With Books. To read, click the link!Excerpt:Nope. I know I received this an ARC and I would normally try to find 1 good thing but I can't. The writing is stilted, the dialogue is so very painful to listen to and the drama unnecessary. The idea of the world building is nice but executed in a way that I, personally, could not connect with. I'm not saying this book is bad, but I didn't like it. If you check out its GR page, some people gave it glowing reviews.


    16. I usually don't review books, but fell in love with this one. It starts as a mystery. What are these winged creatures. Are they good or bad? Moves to forbidden love with the same passion as the Thorn Birds. And the second half of the book is on the edge-of-your-seat action, the realistic horrors capable of mankind, and a race of survive. It had a great underlining environmental message, but most of all, this book has Shail, the golden harpy. A true fantasy male that's to die for.


    17. I loved this book and rate it with 5 stars! This book had me filled with so many emotions. I felt like this book was a suspense, romance, science fiction, drama and horror all rolled up in one book. I would love to see a sequel to this book. Big kudos to the author. The book was well written. I received this book for free through contest.


    18. I couldn't finish this book. I got about halfway through and then skipped around to the end. The world was well crafted and very creative, but the dialogue was very clunky and the characters were boring. The book just took itself too seriously. --The book was provided by Netgalley in exchange of a fair review.--


    19. Very good book. Starts a little bit slow, but once you start reading, you just can't stop.The ecological message is obvious.Just wondering if people would have learned their lesson if they really got a second chance from Mother Nature and if Mother Nature would be so clement as Shail? I strongly doubt it.


    20. I found this an extremely interesting and unique story. The author uses a vivid blend of fantasy, romance and suspense to convey a much deeper message that we share this planet we call Mother Earth, and we must be vigilant not to take its wonderful beauty and nature for granted. Definitely worthwhile reading.


    21. I have mixed feeling about this book. I liked it a lot but think some incidents that happened in the book were totally unnecessary like abuse and raping, it could've been mention in passing but it shouldn't have been so descriptive. Hated that part. The rest I enjoyed it.


    22. What a great read! I'm always looking for authors who come up with original ideas. I love the concept. Many of the science fiction books I've read over these many past years are all action, or all talk. This book has just the right combination. This book would make a great CG movie!


    23. Had an old fantasy feel. Dialog was stilted at times and romance a bit clinical but I loved the idea and the descriptions of nature. World building was also very good.Be warned: deals with abuse and rape.


    24. The story was very entertaining and uplifting. It was a very enjoyable read. I'm looking forward to the next book. My mom, Lois, also read it and she stayed up all night until it was finished. She couldn't put it down.
