Very Graphic in all aspects
Great opening for the series it lets you know even a little about all the characters; keeps your interest
I was both happy and sad over the contents of the book
I would rank Dark Lover up with the best! The reason for this is because it was like I was part of the story line or in the room while the book was happening.
I would have to say a cross between Fifty Shades and a Vamp book.
I have not listened to any of Jim Frangione's other performances before and I love how he does the different voices including the women's. At first I wasn't sure if I would like the set but due to the voices I am totally in love.
When good beats evil. Gets me every time.
I am a 40ish woman with more interests than time but some of my favorite things are books, audio books and e-books. I have over 325 audio titles and have already listened to about 2/3rds of them. I drive over 25000 miles a year and my listening keeps me sane on the road.
I have several times and will come back to it often. The story is heartfelt and sexy with great dialog and a wonderful narrator.
Wrath because he is this tortured character who finds something he wants and stops at nothing to get her!
He captures the pain and the longing that is inherent to Wrath's character while keeping the intense masculinity of the man. At the same time Beth is real and doesn't sound forced or false which is even harder for a male narrator to accomplish.
Both! Often! This is a tough character who lives this brutal existence yet is surrounded by these intense characters. Some of whom are quite funny and some who just break your heart.
This is one of my favorite series. If you love paranormal romance then this is the series for you!
Yes, the first book capture my attention from beginning to end..can't wait to listen to the second book
When I realize that Beth man was blind..called the Blind king oh wow love it
The Blind king
Any chance of a movie?
I would only because the Story is good, the preformance however is Not!
I am a fan of The Brotherhood characters, Rhage is my favorite though.
Jim Frangione is stiff in his performances (all of them, so far). There is no Enthusiasm in his Performance. You can hear him swallowing.
New Narrator Please
Okay, at first I was skeptical. I am used to reading LKH and Lara Adrien, and both writers are a couple of my favorite authors, so I really had a hard time getting into this book for the first few chapters. J. R. Ward is a little different than what I’m used to and her writing style is totally different, but even during my skepticism, I laughed and made a few awe shucks comments. I smiled, I laughed, a couple of time I almost cried. I always enjoy books that make me feel something. However, as the book went on, it got better and better. There was romance, action, a bit of suspense, and a little subterfuge. There was a bit of a twist that I kind of saw coming. There were a few moments of anguish that shaped Wrath’s character more. I don’t know about anyone else, but I kind of fell in love with Beth’s character from the start. As I said, it was a little different for me. I loved the names of the brothers. I wonder if anyone else noticed that they all have sinful or violent names. The idea and the starting point are both interesting and the book will intrigue you from the beginning even if it’s kind of hard to get into. Her vampires are a little different from the norm, and J. R. Ward does a good job of sucking you into the story even though you’re skeptical of the premise. I have read countless reviews and comments about the BDB series, so I decided to try the books, and in truth, I’m glad I did. I would recommend this book and even go so far as to say, I think by the end of the book other readers would want to go on to the next book if only to see which one of the warriors is next on the list. They all seem so strong and full of themselves, and they give the brothers who have mates a hard time, so you just can’t wait for them to be on the romance train next. It was a good read, and I will read the next book in the series.
The narrator is good. I am not a big fan of male narrators; however, Jim does a good job, and I like his inflections and the way he does dialogue. Sometimes, I laughed more at the way he says a person’s dialogue than I would at the actual comment. Oh, the comment is usually meant to be sarcastic, snotty, or just outright funny, but Jim’s inflection and narration makes it more so. He’s okay at trying to do female voices, but it’s kind of hard for males to do female voices. However, I think his rendition of Marissa’s voice is pretty good. Overall, he does a good job, and I will read another book performed by him.
I LOVED the Twilight Series but the love "scenes" in the series left me wanting more. This series give you MORE and then some. THe story is great, the sex is better and the books keep you on your toes!
Audible junkie by night, IT director by day. That doesn't mean I'm a nerd, quite the contrary.
If you like fantasy, vampires, romance, and adventure...then this is a great adult series for you. It's quite a different take on the world of vampires and a breath of fresh air compared to some of the historical stories.
Jim Frangione does an amazing job with the different character voices.
I would recommend this book and this series highly!
the bad guys get to be the heroes loving with all there hart and so much more.
he is perfect for this series.
this one and the next and the next
its complicated so take the time to do the research on the order they come in or you'll be disappointed and confused.
Complex and Entertaining
Narrator did a good job, voice was easy to listen to
The Prodical King
I bought the first two books at once because of a sale. When I first started listening to it I got a little nervious because I found the story jumped around a lot in the beginning. But by the time the book ended I found that I enjoyed it and look forward to the rest of the characters stories. So if you have a hard time listening to it at first just keep listening because it does get better!
