Stories have a good premis, but unfortunately drift into more sex and less plot. Narator was good, unfortuately they swapped narators for one book then go back to the original narator.
Decent reed but plots could be stronger.
Basically this starts out as a mystical mystery, Then you run across a sex scene--okay, it's a modern world, I can put up with that. Then another sex scene, then a fantasy sex scene, and thinking about sex scene, and....well I gave up and checked the plot out in wikipedia...the book is just one long excuse for porn, with a sequel full of it too.
Geeze I know chick lit has girl sex descriptions in it, but at least when you read the "....in Death" series, there's an actual plot there too.
So if you like graphic sex scenes with unhuman creatures--a 5. If not, a 2.
I am hesitant to try the Anita Blake series because this book is so awful. Started out fine, but degraded into weird perversity. I can appreciate erotica; this was just a lot of sex, a little bit of plot and extremely poor writing.
Narrators voice was good choice except for how she chose 2 portray Doyles. his should have been a more velvety, dark chocolate voice, not tha robotic, nasal tone she gave it. just mho.
There is soo much going on in this story that it's a bit hard to follow.So many characters,very imaginative.Good story full of interestingly strange twist and turns.You feel you almost need to take notes in order to follow who's who and where's where.But I still found it interesting enough to listen to the next book.I'm going to give this series a chance. So far so good.
I rate 5 (Loved it!) 4 (Really liked it!) 3 (Liked it!) 2 (Didn't really like it!) 1 (Hated it!) I never rate a book before I finish it!
This book was ok. Too much sex or talk of having sex with half human~half seal, half human~half octopus, goblins etc. etc. and other weird ass stuff. Just not my kind of book. The narrator /production was fine.
Please, please, please - will somebody PLEASE let the narrators know that the word "geas," meaning a magical compulsion or constraint, is pronounced like the waterfowl, geese, instead of what I so often hear used, jeeyoss. It drags me out of the story and compels me to shout GEESE at the rafters. Which is just weird to those in the house.
I forced myself to give this book a chance and listened until the halfway point. 8 hours in, it still has not gotten better. The story is not developed very well and halfway through the book, I can't stand the protagonist of the story, which is told from her point of view. A lot of crazy things happen with minimal explanation and I just cannot bring myself to even finish this book. There is a ton of sex, which is normally great, however, the sex in this story doesn't have any rhyme or reason behind it. I do not recommend this book.
If you're looking for soft porn, no judgement, this is great. If you are looking for a story then don't purchase any of this author's books after the first few Anita Blake books. I have given them several tries and am finally done. If I could give fewer than one star I would.
This book is pure entertainment of the adult kind. The type of book for the nerdy goth girl who may find herself a housewife. It is housewife porn. I find this series extremely fun. What is fun about it you ask, well it is dark and sexy. There are many handsome men to choose from. For the most part our female hero can take care of herself.
