I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.
The story line is a bit slow, but all in all it is entertaining.
The audio reader, well sometimes his voice, reminds me of Patrick from the "Spongebob Square Pants," cartoon series.
I am not saying he does a bad job, but I have a difficult time shaking that imagine from my head. This doesn't put me off from purchasing the 2nd audiobook, however. I will give it another go. I can get past this....think hot stud, think hot stud, not ...Patrick....
This was my first Audible download and I LOVED it! Gena Showalter is a genius and Max Bellmore is a FANTASTIC narrator. I recommend the whole series (this is my favorite from it!) and can't wait for book 5 to come out! I've since downloaded many other books and must say that the narration of this series is the best i've heard thus far!
This book was awesome! Maddox is worth the fight! He actually stirred my blood. The reader was great as well. He really made the book come alive.
The intensity of Maddox's fight with his literal inner demon just amplifies the heat between him and Ashlynn. Amazingly Showalter manages a sumptuous depth of character development with out slowing the story down at all.
Unlike so many UF/PNR series where you have to deal with intense world building, Showalter writes a gorgeous book about love, and gives us a small but fascinating glimpse at her LOTU series. Maddox and Ashton are extraordinary H/H, and Showalter breaks you into her world of myths, gods, angels, demons, and immortal warriors slowly.
I highly recommend this series. Each book is fantastic. 1, 2 and 4 are my favorite. And I'm on 6 now.
I love the series, despite very low expectations. Fantastic narrator as well.
(also this isthe same review as the prequel. I mistakenly posted the review on the wrong book. I can't delete my review of the LOTU 0.5, which was meant for this book. I don't think I've yet listened to the prequel.)
great story line with solid romance scences great character development,makes you laugh and cry, c'mon audible don't make me read this in paperback
I toyed with the idea of getting this book for a while. According to the reviews it is in the same vein as JR Ward, whose books I just can't seem to get into.
I don't regret getting The Darkest Night. I read it from start to finish and enjoyed it for the most part, but it really didn't suck me in like so many other fantasy romance novels. The story was cringe-worthy at times, the chemistry between the two main characters just seemed forced and unnatural.
Still, the book is worth a read if only for Max Bellmore's sexy narration. Once you get past your cringing you can accept the book for what it is, a guilty pleasure.
I had no idea what this book series was about but thought 'what the heck'! As it turns out, the story was good, I did like the characters and definitely like the author. On a personal note, I try not to let myself be swayed by other reviewers opinion of the narrator because sometimes that's a personal preference, but this was a little hard to listen to. However, it is a decent enough story and I enjoyed the book overall.
