I've got to wonder why they choose these mediocre narrators for the Laurell K Hamilton books. The one for the Anita Blake series is so bad I returned them and I love that series. This narrator, Laural Merlington is okay really it's a 2.5 star in my book. The men sound kinda funny and 1st person narration is kinda flat. The queen's voice is really good though. It's a good story, a better series, and for 3.99 with whisperlink worth the extra for something to keep me entertained in traffic. Read it on kindle or paper though if you can.
Okay so this was a little bit of a different twist on the who Fae story lines, but what this book lacked in story it more than made up for with the sex. Good grief... my mouth dropped open several times. I will purchase the next book so I can get a little more of that!!!
I will listen to this over and over again as I love these books I have read them more than once and will now listen to them over and over!
It caught my interest at first, and I think I tried to read it years ago. After, a few chapters (maybe half way through) i just stopped caring about the book and the characters.
I'm not sure why I didn't connect with this book. I loved the author's other series.
less sex - more story
less graphic sex stuff
her voice seems to old/smokers for the character. did not seem to fit.
yes and no. not worth using up my credit. :(
Addicted to Audible.. Is there a 12 Step Program? Will you go with me? :)
This book brings all the child hood fairy tales to light in such a way you will find your self remembering fairy tales and wanting to brush up on your Greek mythology. Nicely done in a modern setting.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen.
Too detail oriented...I don't care what color his tie was...The action was at the end to make you continue on with the series....not if it's another 15 hours of blahhhhh!
No there are many more out there and 10 times better.....
I don't think I have heard her before....she did a good job.
Thank-ful that I got through it.....
Not interested in continuing, glad I got it at a 2 for 1 sale...
I really don't know where to start, but since I have very few criticisms I will start there. The narrator is VERY good! Her voice is breathy and thoughtful, nuanced. She really brings Merry to life. She does not do men very well, but one learns to live with it. It does start a little slow, but the beginning is still very well done. It eases the reader into the mythology and culture of the Fae.
The book is drenched in sex, but there is not that much actual intercourse. Rather there is ubiquitous sexual interaction. It fits the story of a race of people who are very sexual and a world where sex, flesh and blood are a kind of currency.
The heroine is soft and tough, smart and funny and very appealing. It is easy to view this wild and dangerous world through her eyes. I felt drawn into the story. Amazing story telling.
I have read alot of romance, I have read an infinite amount of fantasy and sci-fi. This book is a magnificent (and I don't use that word lightly or often) blending of the 3 with a bit of mystery thrown in. Very complex weaving of plot lines. I purchased the next 2 straight away. Do not be dissuaded by the nay-sayers. This story is well worth the credit.
Late twenties, mother of 2 love paranormal fantasy and Greek mythology
I like fae stories and Laurel k Hamilton but this was long boring plot lines with too much sexual overture. It would make a better porn than a book.
The story was slow to start and dragged on and then there was all this sex with gross characters
Tavia Gilbert or Cynthia Holloway
If it was on tv it would have to be on the spice channel
I live on the Gulf of Mexico and I love to listen and walk the day away along God's beautiful grace.
I love LKH as a writer, her stories are full of words that takes you into the life of the characters in such a way, you feel like your there. This is a great series, I love Merry and her strong bond to her men, her no nonesess attitude to get things done..If you like sf-fi romance, this is a great listen..
