Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Took some getting use too, to start with, due to the street slang and the drug addiction (which I can't relate too). But I have now become caught up in the series. Just finished the 4 book and can't wait for book 5. Best to follow series in order if possible.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan, Stacia Kane, Kelly Medding and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.
I HIGHLY recommend reading all of the "Night Huntress" novels BEFORE this novel. This is a "spin-off" but there are spoilers for the other books. Unfortunatly only "One Foot in the Grave" is availble in audio format, all the books are excellent.
Although this book is about Spade and Denise, Bones and Cat do make a siginifcant appearance in the last 3rd of the book, just as their lives were at the end of book 4 of the Night Huntress novels.
As with her other books, the author does a great job with charater, story and plot development, however I wasn't especially fond of the main charater, Denise. Although she does display traits of strength and bravery, she waivers between those traits and being, well, just down right whinny and irritating at times. Spade was Bones with a bit more polish, and thier relationship develops in much the same way as Bones and Cat's did: our heroine resisting the "nasty" vampire, but eventually falls for his irrestable charm. Now with all that said, there was alot that WAS interesting about Spade's back story, thier circumstances, and the conclusion of story. For me personally, I shy away from stories w/ demons in them (I find them morally disturbing), the demon indeed was a nasty fellow, but he was actually a shapeshifter not Lucifer's minion (or if he was, that wasn't brought up in the book).
The narrator does an excellent job, and I especially enjoy her accents with the exception of one: Denise which she does with a slight southern drawl, for some reason it just didn't work for me. I don't know if that contributed to why I didn't care for Denise or the other way around.
In any event I look forward to the next installment of this series!
