I read how many reviewers disliked Victoria McGee's narration, and I do understand their feelings. But I really enjoyed her vocal qualities and her interpretation because I found it unique and smooth and lovely to listen to.
I'm very glad I read the one reviewer who recommended to listen to this book first before the rest of the series because it seemed to introduce the characters.
I also really enjoyed this book. I found the author's world of humans from Antlantis with nanos particularly fascinating and wonderfully different from any of the many vampire books I've recently become addicted to. What is that? I admit to having a guilty pleasure of all these vampire books and hopefully, soon, I'll have enough of them and move on to something else! They are like potato chips.
I'm a fan of good story writing and I truly enjoyed this story. I really don't get into paying attention to the actual speaker's voices even though to listen to this speaker talk about a love scene was rather comical. Any looking for a good love story..this is it.
This narrator was horrible. I should have listened to reviews! The best thought I had is that it was computer animated voice with adjustments gone wrong. It put me to sleep the first 3 or 4 times I tried listening to it. I kept trying and towards the end the pain wasn't worth it. The story was so, so nothing like Laurell K Hamilton. No excitement, and I actually found myself bored during the love scenes. Not another one...ugh!
this book is the hardest for me to listen to because of the breathy reading style but it is worth fighting through for this piece of the story
I have read this series multiple times. But this audio book was a little hard to listen to
I love the entire world that sands created. I love this entire series
Her voices were weird. I heard way to much spit. I didn't love where she placed the pauses. It honestly sounded too robotic
I like the story so i guess???
Id honestly skip the audio book and read the real thing. You can get through it, but its not the best.
I did enjoy the story. But it was hard to listen to because of the narrator. Unfortunatly alot of the humor in the story is lost due to the narration.
I would try another book only because I love the author's work. The Narrator's voice is computer-like (unnatural) and makes the story sound cheesy.
Greg and Margarite. Greg, for being the normal human with his rationalizations until he learns the truth. Margarite because she is the all-knowing, powerful and loving matriarch.
A better Narrator. Even with a better Narrator the choppy editing would be forgivable.
Yes, I could see the Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series made into a TV series. The stars would have to be young and physically beautiful but good actors in order to be successful. The Vampire Diaries have had success because of the qualities I mentioned but in this series they would have to be comedic actors.
Sure... She (the narrator) has somewhat of a phone sex line voice (all sultry sounding, deep and husky) but it didn't take me long to enjoy her reading. Her characterisations and accents were excellent. This is my first Lynsay Sands audio or otherwise and I liked the quirky and fun characters and the (not your usual vampire story) story with a nice slow burning romance. Enjoyable.
I read so many reviews about this series bring great and finally listened to first book and understand why I never listened to it and put off. Not worth a credit
I love the Kressley Cole and Jeanine Frost series and was looking for a similar supernatural , romance vibe. This wasn't it!
There was little to no action and vampires in didn't wield the supernatural strength or power associated with the fictional species. The narrator didn't 'take me there'. Her narration had no flair and she often empty long seconds of silence which made me wonder if my app had shut down. I don’t know if the rest of the series if any better but I do know that this first installment didn't peek my interest enough to find out.
