I am not one to normally read fantasy type romance. Bought this on a whim! All I can say is WOW!!! I AM HOOKED!! The first 15 min I was sucked into the story and the characters while I couldn't just get enough. The devotion and love story and friendships brought me to tears actually. I can't wait for the remaining books to be released!
Where have I been??? Under a rock apparently! Lords of the underworld....awesomely fantastic! I purchased book one several months ago and sadly it's been catching dust on my bookshelf. Finally I am in the know with this series. I LOVED this first book and plan to buy the entire series so I can catch up with the rest of the listeners that have given such rave reviews. I totally concur whole-heartedly. If you're a fan of paranormal romances this is definitely one to get. I adore the lead characters Maddox and Ashlyn. Their romance really spoke to me and of course I'm a sucker for a hunky guy that falls head over heels and isn't ashamed to shout it to the world! The other Lords are equally as interesting and my ears are burning to hear the remaining stories. Looks like I won't be getting any sleep or working very hard...oh well! :-) highly recommend this book as a credit purchase.
I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)
Four stars for pure fluff. A good romp with a neanderthal in a castle.
As a book, this is seriously just heat. A girl who hears voices gets picked up on the side of a hill and at the top is a castle where all the inhabitants haven't upgraded their English in a century (despite going clubbing each week?) The big brute of a man who plays guard detail has to get killed every night because of a curse so the gal spends the evening in a dank dark cell. Between her fainting and his constant deaths the two finally have some weird desire to latch on to each other and lots of sex.
As a story, it's not so good, but every gal has a fantasy of being manhandled. Every now and then anyway.
ok only listen to this series if you are NOT weak of heart....its hot sex & voilence all wrap up in a great storyline. All 4 books were great listening to, a little raw in some parts, but hey thats what headphones are for, I know I blushed a few time...and giggled ...enjoy..
This book lags on and on and on. The narrator is monotone and sounds exactly the same no matter what emotions the characters are feeling at the moment.
This was the first audiobook I have not bothered to finish, I quit roughly an 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. into listening. DON'T waste your time or money. Intriguing concept that was poorly executed.
The book is very entertaining- the narrator reads in slow-motion and pauses at odd intervals- it was extremely off putting. I had to listen to this audio book is segments so that I didn't go crazy.
I am looking forward to adding more of this series to my collection- unless it the same narrator who did this book- if it is- sorry audible- I won't be purchasing them.
Interesting new perspective to the characters and actually pretty funny when author felt that the mood may be too dark or disinterested.
I thought the story for this sounded really interesting and could be a fun romance. Instead of being fun, I found the dialog between Maddox and Ashlyn to be forced. The majority of their conversations seemed to be single words. All the men in this novel are to be "big, strong warriors" but instead of having an attractive appeal, it was a complete turn off because they became more like brutes. Every time one of the men spoke (for the most part) all I could think was caveman and "me man, you my women." The attempts to make Maddox seem more emotional just left me thinking "gah!" and seemed unbelievable to me. This book also struck me as being very formulaic. Beautiful virgin finds handsome warrior who reveals a tender side which no one ever knew he had and they have steamy sex, then something happened and must be saved by the handsome warrior. Also, the language and wording used during the multiple sex scenes were turn offs for me and no at all romantic and were repetitive. At one point I just wanted the plot to get moving and skipped ahead during a sex scene by 15 minutes and it was still going. The male reader I also found did not appeal to me. I think he only increased how weird the sex scenes were because he voice didn't change much, it felt very monotone. In the end, I was very happy for this book to be over and don't think I will trying any more by this author.
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.
This is a favorite series of mine. It's just fun to go back and just re-visit a series discovered years ago. I do love those Lords of the Underworld!! If you don't know them, then it's time you do. This is a fan favorite of the paranormal genre lovers. This isn't my favorite book in the series, but that does not mean it isn't good.
