I am a Youth Services Librarian at a public library and I love my job. I am also a runner and I love listening to great books while staying healthy. That's Elsie in the picture...she is my favorite running partner and typically perks her ears up during the tense portions of the books :)
For the most part, I did like the reader. The story was a little different than I thought it was going to be and there was just too much world building in this first one and not really enough story. I was really frustrated with Mac's inability to accept the Fae world that she is now a part of.
I will eventually finish the series, because I think I will like the others better.
Mac was a good character with her Southern drawl.
the voice was like nails on a chalk board.the leading lady was the one person who will send you screaming the other way.
it took 5 trys to get through this book and i only maid it because i was out of credits.
Dont do it. I tried twice to listen to this book. Thought the first time I wasnt in the mood for this type of book so i gave it another chance. Mistake, it was just as terrible the second chance i gave it. Save your money/credits.
Great series of books that have everything,romance,mystery,fanstasy.I Love this series of books,as you listen they just keep getting better & better! Have not found anything better.
these audiobooks are very unique,highly recommend them!
The narrators flaws do not distract from the great story line
This is a book for teenagers or for those who like vampire type love stories.
Fine for this type of book.
Not for the more serious minded reader. I tried it under the series offer. Wasn't worth it.
Tell us about yourself I Never want to read a book again. I love love love audible. Now all my children have acc. I drive and listen all day
Every thing I read is the audio version its like a movie in my head i'll never go back to the written word
The iron druid series. The adventure the unpredictable turns that take the story places you didn't expect
When mac realized that her parent wernt her parents that she was special
Yes I couldn't put it down
Everyone will love this book
I almost could not get through this book because of the way the narrator read Barron's voice. He sounded horrible, like the smoking leprechaun mentioned above. I also found the heroine very annoying because we had to hear about her underwear and nail color, etc. every few minutes. I've got book 2 in paperback so I'll try that one of these days. There are so many people who love this series that I feel like I should persist. But it will be the print version.
I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.
Intriguing characters, engrossing story with twists and turns and plenty of mystery. But I wish I'd never listened to book one. Darkfever was so good that I rushed to my library to get the rest of the series. Unfortunately. Book 3 in the series put some adult images in my head that I never, ever wanted there. Be warned.
This story seems to be pretty interesting but with the southern accent of the reader and the juvinal descriptions of the lead characters hairdo and attire the whole thing just gets too tiresome to continue. I've tried twice because as I said the story is interesting. The long blond ponytail every other page and that awful accent. Just too much.
I'm an entrepreneur / small business owner, a computer nerd, a lover of music, an Auburn fan, a father to the 2 best kids ever, and I'm pretty much always in a good mood. I enjoy the shooting range and hit the gym almost every week day. I have an awesome group of close friends and if I drink, I enjoy a neat single malt scotch.
I listened to all 5 books in the series over the course of the last 2 months. The later books are written better and the new narrator is much better. They also use males to read the male voices in the latter books. I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan so following up on Jim Dale's narration is nearly impossible, but I really enjoyed this series nonetheless. If you're looking for another series to read and just can't get into this one, try His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.
