Short & Sweet: I don’t get what the hoopla was about this book. One of my pet peeves where a character says in narration that the “meaning of this event would come clear later” happens numerous times in this book. Unfortunately I would prefer to have my nearly 9 hours back instead of having read this book but I’m obviously in the minority.
I purchased Darkfever and nothing else was exchanged for my honest review.
I'm a caffeine zombie suffering from constant book hangovers.
hard to say, I really like Danny
the prologue when it was talking about the butterfly effect.
really worth checking out.
Less heaving and more plot.
Not anything by this author.
The fact that she could read this book without cracking up is incredible.
Most of them. All bodice ripping, internal heaving.
I couldn't finish it.
Yes , it's unique descriptive and unusual. I really enjoy the excepts and quotes from famous authors.It was sensual( not sexual,) dark, creative, entertaining, funny,emotional, mysterious and intriguing. Morning built an unusual situation, twists and unexpected turns throughout the series and leaves you hanging on the overall antagonist. Although, I enjoyed the other books in this series better, this initial installment is the first layer of her multilevel story.
Frankly I had no favorites in this book the story not the characters kept me interested.
Really nothing of distinguishably noticeable. She was even a little annoying at first; after a while I got used to her voice. Her narration was better than the voice she used in conversation and made the book pleasurable to hear.
Yes I was riveted through most. A bit repetitive at times I wished to. Skip some parts
I haven't read the book in print
It was unique. It had me wondering what was going to happen next.
Yes! Luckily we got most of it done on our drive from Santa Rosa CA to Eugene OR
We really enjoyed this book and cant wait to listen to the next book!
Love a good book with a great storyline, read by a captivating voice.
Awesome. This series was a great find from the first to last book i was hooked, and don't worry there is a great ending to the series and lets be honest some time a series ending can be rather underwhelming.
Left me needing more.
Production & Set Designer and lover of audiobooks!
Darkfever, and the entire series is up there is my top 5 for sure!
I enjoy the world the story takes place in, I love Fae lore, the mystery of the story and how the characters develop and surprise you in the story. Also I think that Jericho is perhaps the sexiest male character ever written in a series.
Joyce Bean read the story great! However, in books 4 and 5 Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante are brilliant. It was so nice to have a male and female voice, and Phil Gigante is perhaps one of my favorite audio book performers as a result of these novels!
Honestly I can't look at the book singularly, the whole series is just something that builds and builds and builds and the final book does not disappoint. What I will say is be prepared for cliff hangers as the novels end.
I have recommended this book to several men and women and every person I have recommended it to enjoyed the books as well. Myself and 3 of my best girlfriends were spoiled by this series and now compare every other book series to it. I feel it is a well balanced series; enough action, mystery, interesting characters and romance with out to much of any of the above. I highly recommend this series, a series I felt really measured up to the Darkfever series is Jeaniene Frost's, Night Huntress novels.
I really hope you enjoy the Darkfever series as much as myself and my friends have!
Whole new Fae
journey of self-discovery and learning what you're capable of.
terrible male impression
listen while driving many times over, could definitely listen to it in one go!
Love the story, hate that Narrator, which it would be re-done with Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross
In some ways, yes. I've been listening to very heavy fantasy and wanted something light to listen to for a bit of a change. So far, deep into the first book, it's light, partly due, I think, to the narrator. I like her voice, but her style of reading, and especially her accents, don't exactly match well with the book.Listening to her speaking in the voice of Barrons (?) made me chuckle when I heard her say he was 30. She makes him sound like a little old goblin. She doesn't use a sexy masculine voice that Barron should have. Thanks to that and the author's writing, Barron didn't come across as masculine and sexy to me.
I wouldn't have hired Ms Bean for this book. She reads in sort of Southern frivolous voice, smooth and easy, but this takes away from the tone of the story for me. She sounds a little older and wiser than the heroine should sound.
Although the story could have been better written, I think it was worth listening to, IF you want something very light.To some extent I adjusted to the narration and enjoyed the story.
The book itself is thrilling and sensual. But I really can't get into it with a female narrator that can not do a male voice. I ruined the book, I had to buy the paper back and read it and the males still sounded like females in my head. Where's Phil? He was wonderful.
Can not voice a sexy male lead. Or any male role.
The world you don't know is coming quicker than you think
I love all of miss Moning series, but I can not get passed the female narrator, I will have to get the books until there is a male narrator, or a better female one.
