I rated this three stars as I didn't completely dislike it. On the contrary, I rather enjoyed it. I love Sarah McCarty's characters and the world she has created. It's wonderfully written. I was wary when I turned it on however due to the narration. If you can overlook the fact that the female narrator was rather breathy when speaking the male roles then you'll have no problem enjoying this audiobook.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I enjoyed this book. Actually, I think this was the best of the three. I certainly hope she intend on writing the rest of Hell's Eight story. I admit the thees and Thous were annoying to me too, but it didn't take away from the story.
I was a bit surprised at how well written the characters were and the plot. It was a well-spent credit. I patiently wait for another episode of Hell's Eight.
I think this book was very good. It is a story and the object is to put yourself in the place of the characters and enjoy the book. I love all three books so far. They are interesting and enjoyable. I do agree that the thee and thou stuff was something to get use to but as much as she uses it you get use to it.
The narrator did well enough and if you have any imagination it doesn't really matter because you can make the voices into what you want anyway.
This was my favorite book of the series so far!
It was a wonderful book, with likable characters, and sexy hot scenes. A book I will listen to more than once. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because I find the narrators voice needs to be a little sexier, and the thees and thous a little distracting but definitely a book I will read more than once.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I keep hoping for a comeback to the excitement from the 1st book in this series. It seems like these next books in the series have been tamed down. There is some steamy parts thrown in, some implied that they happened, but nothing like the first book. I got hooked on the story though so I will get all the books in hope that it will heat back up and also I want to find out what happens with all those lovely men.
It just seems like a typical romance with a typical ending.
It was fine.
I loved Caine's Reckoning. Due to that I will probably try to purchase the Hell's Eight Series. But I have been disappointed in this book.
Go out and read something!
Before you even THINK about purchasing this book be prepared to know that it is just NOT worth it. I have an open mind, but nothing could make me like this book. First off. The main character Sallie Mae is a quaker who's husband dies and even though she's in morning, she falls in love with the 1/2 Indian Tucker. He's gorgeous, wild, untamed, and believes in violence. He's a ranger. And even though Sallie hates violence of any kind, she lusts for him, and the consume that lust, over and over again.
The sex is the ONLY thing that redeems this stupid book.
Another thing you should know is that Sarah McCarty likes to beat a dead horse. She goes on and on and on reminding us how Tucker thinks that no one could love him. He resents his 1/2 Indian heritage, yada yada yada. After a while, you're annoyed and you want him to either accept who he is, or get into a gun fight and die. Ms. McCarty doesn't make Sallie Mae a likable character either. The most annoying thing about Sallie is that she talks so annoyingly that you really just want her to shut up. She replaces 'thee' for YOU, and she says it ALL OF THE TIME. In addition, she talks in some strange monotone and its so aggrivating. You want to fast fwd her speaking bits and allow her to only moan when she and Tucker have sex. Seriously. I couldn't like her if I tried. She also is presented as a strong willed woman who's so smart and believes in her convictions, yada yada yada... Let me be clear. SALLIE MAE IS A WEAK, FOOLISH WOMAN. I hate reading books about stupid women. I can't condone it. She's all "no violence' blah blah blah and she continues with her convictions even as a man is about to kill her. Really? Or how about how she's all "I won't get married. I'm in mourning..." blah blah blah and yet, because of how society sees her, she allows this drunkard to carry her supplies home, walking ALL through the town, which symbolizes that she's out of mourning and actually letting this drunkard court her. I kept hoping she'd be killed. I would have enjoyed the book more.
Anyone who tells you this book is good is lying to YOU and THEMSELVES. It's a waste of money and time. The book rambles on and on reitterating the same points. It's so foolish.
It just doesn't work for a woman to narrate a book with tough men in it like this series. It makes them sound creepy instead of masculine. That being said..the book was very good. Loved the story and would recommend it.
Tell us about yourself!
A little to anel for me but the story was good. The first two books in this series were very hot.
Didn't like Tucker's Love interest. The Thee and Thy got really annoying really fast. Didn't like the narrarator either.
