S. A. Williams
This series just keeps getting better and better. Robb started telling the story from different character's POV including the bad guys. It makes things so juicy good! But, the best thing is getting the insight into Roarke’s head. He is so incredibly in love with Eve and it makes the heart melt to read their scenes together. Eve is the kind of woman who is a Cop first but when she is with Roarke he can make her put away the cop and be a woman.
This case stretches Eve to the breaking point. She is forced to lie to close friends and allies, all for the sake of duty. Friendships and loyalties are tested. She is brought into a world of the occult to tackle her hardest case to date with many possible foes. And of course Eve wouldn’t be Eve is she didn’t put her own life on the line.
What can I say, I love this series and listening to the audiobooks are one of the best parts of my day.
The story is pretty good, I find I want to know what's going to happen next. Unfortunately, when the narrator displays the excitement the main character is feeling I find it hard to listen to as the quality of her voice becomes a higher pitched controlled yell. That, alone, causes me to turn the audio book off from time to time. This has taught me to choose male narrators over females. I didn't realize before that I am sensitive to higher pitched voices.
story line, depth of details
I wish there was a reconciliation between Chas and Eve. I also want to know what happened to the young girl who was used by the bad witch to frame Chas. Tidying up details makes for a satisfying conclusion
I've now read and listened to the first five books, and they are all terrific, I've fallen in love with Eve & Roarke, Mavis, Peabody, Feeney. The stories just draw you in, I find myself talking back to the book, and the narrator was terrific, never change that. Now I'm off to read Vengeance in Death.
I've been a cop almost 26 years and although her setting is futuristic, cops remain trie to their character. I'm loving the development of Peabody and Eve's role as mentor.
