I really should have listened to the other reviewers and skipped this book because the narrators voice is the most distracting and annoying thing I've ever heard. The only thing I can liken her reading style to is if you combined the sound of a 90s computer reading to you with an NPR host. This could be the best book ever and sadly I'll never know. Avoid this narrator at all costs.
This narrator is bad. I can't get into the book because it's too annoying to listen to.
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.
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!
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.
I really enjoyed this story. Lynsay Sands knows how to pace the story to really make it a fun ride. However, when the narration is the metaphorical equivalence of "nails on a chalkboard" during the ride, it become much less enjoyable.
So much so that I couldn't finish the book by listening to it. I ended up downloading a digital copy and reading the last two-thirds. I really, really, really, hope that Audible will go back and have one of the other amazing readers in this series re-read this book. The main reason being that if they don't many people maybe turned off the series.
I have to say that I am highly disappointed. I have read all the books that Lynsay Sands has written. I was happy to see this book in this format. Unfortunately, the narrator killed it for me. I couldn't get into the book. It got so bad that I just had to stop and have not even gotten to half of it. I wish I could just send it back. I will definitely not be buying any other books that are narrated by her. I wish I had read the comments before I bought it.
No, she sounds like a robot. She didn't add any character to the characters.
Maybe if another Narrator read it. It was hard to listen to because she was robotic and flat :(
