By Sherrilyn Kenyon
Ultimately readers of Sherrilyn Kenyon's darkish Hunter sequence are rewarded with Acheron's tale. lengthy awaited by way of lovers, together with me, i could not wait to determine the way it became out.
The first a part of the publication bargains together with his earlier and adolescence. it is not a simple learn however it explains every thing and is easily written.
Unfortunately, the second one 1/2 the publication used to be no longer as alluring for me. once we stream into trendy and the tale makes a speciality of the romance, it shifts tone thoroughly and turns into extra of an ethereal, gentle learn common of the style. i discovered it difficult to think Acheron overcame his objection to like so fast and felt like Tory used to be a piece too accepting of him whilst published.
The plot was once sturdy and moved good, and the characters have been compelling as continuously. i feel my major challenge was once the shift in tone.
In the tip, i used to be happy with Acheron's tale and wait for Kenyon carrying on with the sequence.

OLEISAPI opened up dynamic Web page creation to COM objects, providing programmers with the opportunity to create dynamic pages though a compiled ActiveX DLL. However, the specific implementation and data communication technique that it uses is not efficient or scalable enough for anything other than minor tasks and Intranet work (as opposed to high-volume Internet sites). It also suffers from the drawback that each change to the page text and markup requires a recompilation of the DLL. The following diagram gives some indication of how all the technologies we've discussed so far are related: Web Server CGI Perl Interpreter ISAPI Compiled Executable OLEISAPI IDC DLL ASP DLL dbWeb DLL Perl Script IDC Query File ASP Script dbWeb Definition Database IDC Template File Scripting Engines Database Comparing Dynamic Web Page Creation Methods Making comparisons between dynamic page creation techniques is both a difficult and politically sensitive task.
However, to start off, we'll have a quick run around ASP itself to make sure you understand the fundamental concepts. The Origins of ASP In this part of the chapter, we'll look briefly at where ASP came from, and why it has rapidly gained popularity with the Web developer community. We'll start with a look at the foundations of the Web, and the growth in dynamic Web pages. We'll see how ASP compares with many of the other technologies that can provide this dynamism, and from this we'll hopefully gain an insight into where it's going.
