I am in my mid 50s love reading and continue my love for reading with audio books while driving helps me relax quietly after all day talking
narrator was awful and not a lot put into the story
bad book good series
I've read all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books, so let me first say that the story isn't what disappointed me (although it wasn't her best work, it was enjoyable and moved the DH universe along at the pace I've come to appreciate).... it was the performance and the abridgement of the work which were severely lacking in my opinion. I absolutely would not recommend wasting your time with this one - just buy the book and take the six hours or so to read it yourself. That way you'll get the whole story without the weird gaps which tend to detract from this production. I also felt the performance was quite jarring and the voice wasn't right for the characters.
I have certainly recommended the book, but I do not recommend the audiobook.
it was jarring, too breathy, sometimes lisping and sometimes harsh, making it difficult to stay in the story.
For the short amount of time (4 hrs 39 mins) that I was given, yes. I was surprised to see a book so far into this series be an abridged recording and that is why the Overall rating is low.
Of course, I have listen to most of the Dark Hunter Series, all of the Belador series, and I plan on listening to The League series and Chronicles of Nick.
Not really a follow up...just an UNABRIDGED audiobook option.
I usually don't write reviews, but I thought somehow the powers that be will see this and say "ok she has a good point".
Considering Kenyon's Menyon base is quite large, why in the world did a decision maker just randomly decide, "hey this is book number 9 in this wildly popular series we are going to abridge this book." I mean really. I have listened to all of the Dark Hunter books thus far and love them and not because they are romance novels. I love mythology and everything that goes along with it. So now to get the rest of the story I will have to buy the book again in print :(
I love the Dark Hunter Series, but there is simply too much detail in each of the books to abridge one of them. I was really disappointed with how much was cut out of the story, and the narrator wasn't nearly as good as the usual one, Fred Berman. I'd recommend that you read this one, and not waste time listening to the abridged version-you'll enjoy it so much more!
Sherrilyn, yes, Maggi, no
One that was not included in the audio abridged version
She had a very annoying voice
Trust me, this book has been butchered enough, and anyone who follows the series would agree that integral parts were cut from the audio. As an editor, I'd put them back...
yes, PLEASE....Re-do this audio book UNABRIDGED, with Holter Graham or Fred Burman, who have done the rest of the series....
Addicted to Audible.
The fact that it was abridged was bad, it was made worse because the book was very choppy and not enjoyable. Terrible job. In addition the narration was horrible! I have listened in order to all the books in this series up to this point. I have enjoyed them all. I will continue to listen but not with this narrator and never again an abridged version. I DID not finish the book. It was that bad.
I am not sure it was the writing of this book that was bad. I have not read the printed work. I suspect the original unabridged version was as wonderful as her other books.
I just could relate to this narrator, it took away from and already choppy and abridged book.
Disappointment , the other books were so good. I would skip this audio version and read it.
Love the SERIES!!! Just pass this one and keep going =)
What a let down. I bought the abridged version because that was all I was able to find. The editing was terrrible. There were big gaps in the story. Not worth the money
I have listened to all the other Dark Hunter Books here & loved each one. I was so surprised and dissapointed in the fact that the story line was very boring & the relationship development was almost non-exsistent (and way... less steamy than all the others).
I loooooooovvvve books!!!!!!!!
This book was the first one that I have ever listened to in this series and now I have to start at 1. I am hooked!!! Where is the unabridged version? This was too short but it was an excellent listen and the narrator was perfect.
