I LOVE The Hollow series. I thought the reader for book one made Layla sound a little goofy but THIS reader makes them all sound like morons and the character voices are all quite juvenile. Quinn sounds like a character from an 80's cartoon like Jem and the Holograms. She can't make a man sound like a man and it's hard to tell who's supposed to be talking a lot of the time. It's really difficult to listen to. I keep fast forwarding during general conversation because this lady's reading style is quite grating. The intimate scenes are a complete joke as she talks like a teenage girl reading a stolen dirty magazine at a slumber party. I really hope there's a different "performer" for the 3rd book.
As usual Nora Roberts writes a great story full of rich characters, friendship, and family. We met these characters in book one, but this time we get to know them better because it is their story. We also get to hear from other characters from book one, the town people we met before and the characters that will star in book three. This narrator is better than book one, although I woulld prefer all three in a series was done by the same person, it is a good thing in this case that it is a different person.
This book continues on, picking up where book 1 left off, but is from Fox & Layla ' s point of view just as book 1 is from Cal & Quinn's point of view. They are getting closer to figuring out how to getting rid of the demon, but also a few months out from The Seven. Highly recommend this book series if you like Nora Roberts or the paranormal. I love a lot of her paranormal trilogies, and this is one of my favorites.
Didn't like the fact there was a different Narrator than the first book.
Part one of this series is great and Phil Giganti was an awesome narrator for part one. I have no understanding why they would switch the narrator with one that is just so bad. In book one Phil Giganti gave Leila a New York accent in this book you can't tell the difference between the women and who are the men. I am just trying to get through because the story really is good and I'm looking forward to book 3. Unless you get these stories at a lower rate like I did you are better off reading book don't waste your credit. The story is really interesting Nora Roberts really is a great author. I'm a JD Robb fan and these stories don't disappoint. Happy Reading!
This is the worst narrator ever. The females sound like spoiled cheerleaders. Just for reference if reading about a demon making you see a pitcher of blood instead of beer, she made it sound like a Valley girl who broke a nail, that's when I gave up.
Anger in the way it was ruined, I have read the book and enjoyed it. The terrible narration may have ruined it for me forever. When I went to my bookshelves and got it out to read I found I could because I kept hearing that whinny voice in my head.
I am returning this one ASAP. I try not to do return many but I want my credit back!
Marie Caliendo should have read the entire series. It is so much more enjoyable when all three books in a trilogy are read by the same person, even if the book is from a different characters perspective or focus. Her voices were so much more believable and easy to listen to. I wish Brilliance would consider having the other two reworked. I am one who listens to my books, especially the Nora Roberts trilogies, over and over, but it will be hard for me to do that with these.
A lot of the paranormal stuff doesn't really make much sense to me but I still enjoy the charactors & can't wait to see how the series ends. This narrator is much better than the 1st book.
It's a very well-written, well-plotted, scary, romantic story.
The 6-pronged attack against the whole group. Very scary.
The walk to the Pagan Stone at the end of the book.
