Yes but not with the enthusiasm of other book. The narrator lacks the passion of the other books.
Having Laurel Merlington narrate.
I love the series because of the passion and would read more.
And the second time that she switched to Claudia Black....And again messed up the listening experience by switching narrators. Laurell Merlington was needed.
I have all of the books in this series. Each book is written in first person which allows the reader to see this new literary world through Merry's eyes. These books progressively get better every time I listen. However this particular book is truly the culmination of the five previous books and the most important in the series. Unfortunately some publishing DORK changed the narrator to some British chick instead of keeping Laurell Merlington. I'd pay for this book all over again just to have the old narrator make it come to life and keep the tone of the books more uniform. You can't get better than these books if your genre runs parallel to all things paranormal and romance. But lumping it into that one category of books isn't doing the series justice. I love this series so much that I own them in hard copy and through Audible. This series is more graphically sexual than Anita Blake ever thought about being and there are no vampires. However if a slew of beautiful men rotating out of one extremely lucky woman's bed gives your body the warm tingles and wrenches up the possibilities in your imagination - you can't go wrong with these books. Can't wait for the next one!
The entire series was narrated by Laurell Merlington except for this one narrated by Claudia Black. Bad choice - should have stayed with Laurell to remain consistant. Lost it's continuity as a series.
I would recommend that if you are thinking about purchasing this audio book that you listen to the sample before you do so. If I had done so, I probably would not have purchased it despite my enjoying this author and this series. The reason is that I found the narrator, Claudia Black's voice hard to listen to. Personally, I think the previous narrator, Laural Merlington was much easier to listen to / follow.
I have enjoyed Laurell Hamilton's work. I love the fey. Why did they change narrators? I miss Laural Merlington's voice. That is the Princess that I know. It is like there is an imposter in the book trying to act like Princess Meredith.
i adored this like i love all ms hamiltons work i hope audio keeps bringing us more of her novels
cause i cant wait to buy skin trade
Ms Black would be a good narrator for the Elizabeth Peters series, but a poor choice for this one. Meredith sounds like a snob, and the men all sound the same.
My favorite of the series is only made better by the incredible narration of Claudia Black. The princess uses the phrase 'a voice like warm honey,' in several of the novels, and listening to Claudia bring this book to life, I finally know exactly what she means. Great job.
I loved this book. In fact, I'm going to have to buy it and "read" it. The narrator is not terrible. In fact, she is quite good. With that said, I have to say that after listening to the other books, it's distracting to have this type of narration. There's a lot of dialogue in this book. It's hard to figure out the difference between Doyle, Reece, Gaylan, or even Andeais... They all sound the same. I can't wait for the next book, though.
