I read and enjoy a variety of genres. My only requirement is that a story is well written, with interesting characters, and that both are believable. When I listen, the narrator is also very important. This is the second in the series I've heard, and I loved them both. Thanks Patricia and Lorelei. Scifi meets Stephanie Plum:)
Pleasant enough story, but not terribly exciting. I'm a bit put off by the protagonist's religiosity; my impression is that it's not merely character development, but an expression of the author's own views. Her pontificating about Christ's sacrifice on the cross and the like seem rather sanctimonious, and she's condescending towards another character's atheism. I bet a quarter that she manages to convert him before the series is done; it's one of the fantasies of the religious, sort of like the rest of us dream of getting superpowers from a radioactive meteor.
All of Briggs book flow by. Mercy's books show "monsters" that you can understand, as do the Alpha and Omega books which tie in to this series.
Good story line. Flows well. Very well narrated. It is best to start with first book though in order to have a good grasp on characters. It should also be mentioned that it ties in with "the alpha and omega" series by Briggs.
Kept me guessing, sitting on the edge of my seat, i could not stop listening to it, love the auther and the narratior. Great books cant wait ro hear the others. These books have a little bit of everything . Keep them to hear again. I know i will. I also loved all the love interest.
I strive to give unflinchingly objective detailed reviews so you don't need to waste your time and money, unnecessarily, on mediocre titles.
As a female mechanic, myself, I enjoy the technical details! I didn't know about the Opel engine torque direction, nor that it could be replaced with a rotary engine....but I digress.
Lorelei King is one of the best narrators, bar none. She doesn't mispronounce words and her male characters have a pleasant voice.
Patricia Briggs weaves a wonderful tale that doesn't rely on erotic scenes to keep the listener's attention, she uses story telling and well-rounded characters. Let's pretend that phrase didn't follow the point about the lack of reliance on eroticism.
I'm enjoying the series and Lorelei's expert narration.
