I love the book. The plot is logical and has enough unexpected turns. The main characters are adorable. Good reading. Thank you!
Only because I was silly enough to buy the first two books at the same time. I'll listen to the second in this series only because I already own it. Otherwise I wouldn't bother with wasting another credit.
No. The writing wasn't anything special, so it's not like she had good material to work with, but she took a bad book and made it ten times worse. I'd probably actually avoid buying a an audiobook if she did the performance.
In search of a new PNR series to delve into, I figured a series with this many books has to be good, so I'll give it a try. Ugh. After listening to the first book I'm sorry I already own the second. This book was incredibly painful to get through. The narrator is beyond terrible and the voices she used were grating. The author's writing, characters, and overall plot just seemed very unpolished and overall blah. I kept rolling my eyes at how awful it all was that I was afraid my eyes were going to get stuck. The only reason I finished it was to move onto the second in hopes that the author's writing does actually get better. This was a waste of a credit.
For me listening to this book was pure suffering. I should probably have known better - in hindsight the title of the book is a dead giveaway. So if the title appeals to you after you have considered it - then you might actually like the book - I did not.I did actually listen through it all the way to the end - I don't know why, it was like a car accident - you want to look away, but...It was trite, predictable, had a weak, pathetic female lead with no self esteem.In comes the male lead, a supernatural hunk with issues... The story has been written so many times, and it does not get any better for it.. If you like weak females and misogynistic men and lots, and lots of embarrassing sex, this is the book for you. If not - stay clear.
I do not think that is possible - everything about the book is completely wrong for my tastes
The narrator is not bad in her self - it is what she reads that makes it unbearable
I loved Grace's simplicity. She had such a wonderful empathy for what Julian's feelings could have been.
Selena because I have a friend just like her.
I find myself laughing out loud at some of the sarcastic things that the characters say.
Where to begin... I love romances. Historical and paranormal tend to be favorites. And while I've slogged through some shallow, silly, convoluted, and eye-rolling stories, I've never NOT finished one. But THIS... One hour in and I wanted to bang my head against the wall to make it stop!
Every tedious cliche of the genre is trotted out, but even so, that is not what made this intolerable. It's the narrator, Carrington MacDuffie who completely RUINS the story!
I read the negative reviews, so before deciding to take a chance, I listened to a sample and thought she sounded very pleasant. And she DOES have a lovely voice. That's not the problem. It actually took me awhile to pin-point what it was that was so GRATING about her narration...
She reads the story with such exaggerated expression, it sounds like she's mocking it. May-be she's trying to be sexy and funny with the way she PURRRRRS out the story, but it's also how you would read it if you were making fun of it. She could render Tolstoy ridiculous like that. And there is much about the story - at least the part I made it through - that IS ridiculous.
I didn't mind the "fantasy" part of the story... Hot guy trapped in a book? Sounded intriguing. But even fantasy needs some realism to work! May-be it was coming... along with the character development. But I couldn't listen to MacDuffie's over-the-top rendition of SEEEENSUAL and SULLLLLTRY for one more second.
Get a new narrator
I did, and they were much better than this one, due to the narrator.
With that narrator, there was none
I failed to write a review on this after i bought it and I'm sorry I did not. I literally do not know the ending to this book. I could not take the way she spoke in that country accent on and on and on. Every now and then she would stop, but she did not now as the narrator, you don't keep speaking as the character. I had to stop listening, it was that bad.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is the first book in the Dark Hunter series. Although it doen't touch much on the dark hunters them selves. It is more about the god and goddesses than the deamon crisis. My favorites in the series are Dance with the Devil, Night Play and Devil may Cry.
Long haul Expeditor that loves listening to books and make the miles fly by.
Although I've never been a fan of
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I love this audio book. The narrator does a great job too. It is truly intertaining from beginning to end!!
