It was very good. Hopefully Born of Fire coming out next month will be available in audio
First of all, for the ladies:
You will fall in love with this exciting book which intertwines deep loving passion with heart stopping action. In a classical sense its a story about a princess that wants to live her life the way she wants and of the tragic hero who thinks he's just in it for money while in truth a strong sense of honor drives his every deed. Their unlikely encounter spawns a passionate love that drives the undercurrent of their interaction between each other, yet the differences of their upbringing makes them question about each others feelings. With added danger of assassins and some politics this book should...nay will keep you on the edge of your seat till the last page. A must buy!
Now for the guys:
STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK! READ IT AT YOUR OWN RISK! The characters are as 2d as they can possibly get and mostly reminds me of these $5 books where Fabio is holding some blond chick that is about to orgasm just from looking at him (just add space ships in the background). Albeit some of the action can be entertaining, the cheesy love and "struggle" of the characters is not just jokingly bad, its extremely cringe worthy and just plain awkward. Don't get suckered in by all the 5 stars, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Wow, I should have read the review from Denis!
This really was not a science fiction action book as much as it was a romance novel. The futuristic aspects with ships and blasters were really just afterthoughts.
How many times can you read about one character's POV on the attraction to another character? Seriously, every other thought was on their primal attraction.
I finally gave up 1/2 way through the book.
Loved it! Story was fast paced, interesting, emotional and worth the read! Characters were interesting,funny, scary, hateful, sexy, horrible, hunky, and unforgettable! Wow! The narration was disappointing and did do justice to each character.
It is slow at the start but it is one of the best books I have listened too. This is the first book of five. I hope the next are as good.
Instead of my inner voice I hear someone elses voice.
I listened to half of the book in one sitting and I am now working on the next part.
I was pleasantly surprised at how great this book is. I had no expectations as it was about aliens and I usually do vampires/ wolves but this was right up there with the best. And I mean the best:BDB, Cat and Bones,any kresley Cole's series, I will read this full series and could not put this book down. Amazing.
The only people I can imagine enjoying this book would be horny teenage girls who haven't read enough Harlequin romances yet to be bored by the predictable plot and uninteresting characters.
The Girl With All The Gifts
The performance was okay, given the drivel the poor girl had to work with.
All of them.
I have never written a book review before, but I feel strongly enough about this book to want to warn others about it.
Don’t buy it. Don’t bother. Just re-read Twilight and imagine various alien races instead of vampires and werewolves. Throw in a few complete gaps in plot logic and a whiny, boring heroine that makes Bella look smart and fascinating and you’ve got this piece of absolute drivel.
There is nothing here but a hackneyed, poorly-written smutty romance with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I got to within an hour of the end and quit, because I couldn’t believe I had wasted so many hours of my life already, waiting for something to show me why this book has such great reviews. The narrator does a pretty good job, but the book itself is garbage.
This is the worst book I have tried to listen to in a long time.
Love reading but don't always have time to read. Wife and Mother of 3 kids. Best suggestion my girl friend gave me.
the story gave me background on the characters and made them more personal to me. I kind of fell into this seriers 5 books in through my local library. Now that I know the start of the story this book has more meaning. I have my husband hooked on this authors books.
I love the the hold love and the battle for your sanity. I dont usually sci-fi but this book was to out of this world I'm looking forward to adding the complete series to my wish list.
This is my first Kelly Fish book and I enjoyed the reading
I listen to this book in 2 days. seven hours at work and while preparing dinner and bath time. I really enjoyed this book and the other books are just as exciting.
