no, the male and female narrators on the CDs are much better than the audible narrator.
This story is fantastic all around.
her voice, accents, and intonation. she sounded too old, and her voice for barrons sounded like an old lady which kind of ruined the story.
it was a great book and the series just gets better. I am waiting for another series from her that is not a spinoff from this oneone.
I loved this series on my Kindle and enjoy it just as much on my iPod. I did find myself laughing out loud at the arguments between Barrone and Mac because they are so human and in a story where humans are not the main event, they are refreshing and well done.
If you purchase any one of the Fever series you should buy them all since they are really only chapters in a longer novel. Individually they have no resolution but they build to a very exciting conclusion. The first three are voiced by Joyce Bean who does a great job of sounding like a young,pretty, slightly spoiled, southern princess. She is less successful with the very critical character of Jericho Barrone, who sounds like a grumpy leprechaun. The last two books change narrators and tone which is an improvement. But Bean is perfectly fine in the earlier books when Mac is still somewhat naive. However all her male characters tend to sound much the same.

Everytime she did her voice for Jericho I kept seeing this creepy little Leprichan type guy. There was nothing appealing about the voice. I could see the guy that Mac discribed but the voice.... I would see red hair, green suit, 5 foot or smaller playing in a pot of gold. At least Mac wore a rainbow dress when she went to the "Vampire's" house. Oh wait that is proving my point
Joyce Bean was a great narrator, although I didn't prefer her male voice I like the story and her narrative as a whole.
Whenever Barrons said something snarky, which was all the time lol.
I liked how she read the whole book. She was very passionate and animated about every aspect of the story and she dragged me into it with her.
Can the Fae get any hotter? Meet Mr. Barrons, he's not your *ahem* F'ing Faery.
In order to enjoy the first three (or two and half) books, I had to listen to the entire series first. There are two many details cramped, especially in the first book, that necessary to learn about magical world. It maybe different for people that are familiar with Irish folk tales, but I found myself dozing off constantly the first time I listened to the book.
I found narration of male characters by Joyce Bean quite distracting, though I believe it improved by the third book or maybe I just got used to. I hope these audios will be rerecorded with Phil Gigante. JZB is one of the sexiest characters in romance world, and it would be a shame if Phil Gigante would not finish the whole series. Joyce Bean or very-very few narrators could do this.
I found ms. Beans' voice and accent quite enjoyable for female characters though. Regardless of the negative comments, I believe ms. Beans one of the best narrators for audio books.
I, actually, to my surprise, fell in love with the series by the time I finish the last book. So I will encourage everybody, as many other reviewers, to stick with the series, the story truly gets better, especially when Phil Gigante begins narrating JZB. He adds the magic to the book.
I definitely will listen to Fever series more than once.
I read the books and loved them so I bought the audio books and listened to them and it was like a new story all over again. The narrators were amazing!
Very well read and a great story.
