I have not been disappointed by any of Kim Harrison's books and this one is no exception. The original narrator is back and sounds great. This was a great listen I am already anticipating book 8.
Wow! Hold on to your seat because you are in for an emotional rollercoaster! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll curse human kind! In the end you will be grinning from ear to ear...I know I was! You have to buy this! Trust me, you will not regret it!
I just finished White Witch Black Curse, and I loved it! I have missed Rachel so much the past months, she is back in all of her glory, as another reviewer said her "I'm sorry's" get to be a bit overdone but not enough to detour me from this listening, we finally find out, well whats been left open in previous books gets tidied up here. I can not wait for the next book, its killing me that its not coming out until next year.
Discovering Kim Harrison was my entertainment high point - she has continued to deliver where Laurel Hamilton did not. Kim has created yet another cracking good novel that compliments all the earlier books in this series. The characters are enriched, the story line is coherent both as a stand-alone book, and in series development. Personally the only demerit was the narrator. The Outlaw Demon Wails has been the only other audible book of this series I have listened to and I adored Gigi Birmingham's interpretation of the characters. This narrator failed to deliver the same level of imagery.
I always love Kim Harrison's stories. She brings personalities to life in a way that brings you into the world she has created.
Bringing a new narrator into the middle of a series is never a great idea. I almost did not purchase it, because of someones remark that she had ruined it.
I think that the narrator tried to do her best. But if she had listened to the previous narrator in at least one book or even half of it, she would not have pronounced the words incorrectly. I really tried to consign myself to it. But some of the words that are pronounced wrong are just plain unnecessary. It was annoying. Also when she did Jinx's voice, it was ear piercing.
I believe in another circumstance she is a great narrator. Just not in the middle of another's work.
I would not skip this one as it is a good as the past editions, but I would like people to expect the issues, rather than being surprised.
Audio books are just my cup of tea!
This series took me 3 books before I was absolutely hooked. But now......love Rachel!!! I agreed with the book 6 reviews and instead of doing Audible for book six I went with the Kindle version. So glad I did!!! Book six has much more about Rachel's family, read it before you go to book 7. It's worth it! Love this series!!
This is another hit in the Racheal Morgan series. Once again Rachel has to balance drama in her personal life with trying to save the world. This is a fast paced complicated book with several storylines and characters. The characters are growing and developing and I can't wait to see what happens next. We finally find out what happened to Kisten, and Rachel meets someone who might be a keeper. I really liked the interaction with Rachel and her brother. The argument that they have at the end of the book is very realistic and for once, Rachel did not apologize for letting him have it. I only wished she said more to him. This is a great series and I look forward to reading the next book.
I have been totally sucked into this series and I love it! I love the voices the narrator gives to the different characters. I love the twists and turns the stories take, and, although there are times I would like to wring Rachels' neck (or at least shake some sense into her), she is a loveable character and someone I think it would be worthwhile to know. I've been listening to the books in order and can hardly wait to begin the next book after completing the one before. Defintely worth a listen!
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
don't know....only listened....but I bet it is!!!
No comparison....its awesome on its own!!!!
Yep....she is an Awesome Rachel!!! I can not believe they switch narrators on book 6....soooooooo lame.....I read the reviews, and listened to the sample...and am so glad I just read it to myself on my kindle....No one can replace MG!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to, lol but it was too long too....
others have said this is the weakest book of the series, but I strongly disagree....it ties together a LOT of loose ends, and I thought it was tragically beautiful..it made me cry, and laugh....just like #6! and I think #6 was the best one yet!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ENTIRE SERIES!! I am moving on to #8 now!!!
3,495 hours listened in 2012! I used to be a voracious reader, then my job had me driving about 1k miles a week. I started listening to Audible and have never stopped. I quit work and now just listen all the time, cleaning house, shopping, driving, in the hot tub. I even put one earbud in and let Audible read me to sleep every night.
Rachel continues to make bad decisions and she does not consider how her life is impacting all those she claims to love. I'm tired of the whining. Rachel needs to get strong and make things right.
I will keep reading this series hoping for a redemption of Rachel, I'd like to know what happens to Ivy and Janks.
Rachel is great, Ivy's voice is purrrfect and Marguerite gets Janks right. The narrator of the last book made Janks irratating, so glad Ms Gavin is back.
Yes, you need to listen to this one to bridge to the next one, which I'm sure it will be better.
