I was unhappy with the 4th book reading, I feel you let us down, by changing the reader in the middle of the series, she was way to young and her voice sounded like she was 10 yrs old . She does not make me want to listen to it. I am once more letting you know how very ( and I can not state enough) unhappy I am with it.
Still a fantasitc series, but this narrator is just not Edwina. Please bring her back, she was so good.Sorry but Jenna is not right for this. I will have to buy the book now :-(
You're getting closer McMillan audio but still not the right narrator. The first narrator sounded as though she was in her 30's and now this narrator sounds like she's 12. Zoey just turned 17 and she's lost her virginity. I feel like I'm listening to a tween narrate this book, it's just wrong. I totally heart this series but the narrators have let me down. If you can, read this series instead of listening to it. Not your fault audible, and I still love you. Can't wait for Tempted to come out!! You go Cast duo!!

I like the series, but add my voice to the chorus; the narrator is wrong, wrong, wrong for the series. (There is something seriously creepy about hearing what sounds like a 8-10 year old's voice describing the more mature urges of a 17 year old).
Do yourself a favor, listen to the last 10 minutes of book 3, then go buy the print copies of the books so you can read them with Edwina Wren's voice talents in your mind.
I have to say this narrator should read for little kids' books BUT these books need Edwina. She captures the characters & this girl sounds like a pre adolescent child & it disturbs me to hear her say F*** or any of the kind ...seems so wrong!
I don't want to be mean, but the narrator for this book is really awful. especially when you're used to Edwina Wren for the last three.
She sounds like she's 10 yrs old now. The voices she uses for Zoey's friends are terrible except for Jack. It probably wouldn't seem as bad if there hadn't been such a terrific narrator for the first three books in the series. I can't even finish listening to this, I wish I could get my money back, it's just terrible!
My wife recommended the House of Night series to me because I enjoyed the Twilight saga so much. I do enjoy series so far, maybe even more than the Twilight saga and the reader for the first 3 books did an fantastic job and gave the book a mature sound and feel. These books are definitely for the older teenager/young adult/adult audience so when I heard Untamed, I was pretty disappointed in the narration. The reader sounds like she's 12 and in junior high school rather than a 17 year old (who would have been a Junior in High School if she wasn't marked) that has experienced more mature situations as in the last 3 books. I enjoyed the story but please bring back the original narrator for the 5th and future audiobooks. And these books should not be tagged with "Audible Kids", these are a bit more mature than that. Maybe Audible should consider an Audible Teens or Audible Young Adult section for these types of books.
The entire series is great, the characters are wonderful, and I am glad how the authors are consistently showing how the characters interact, plus deal with, and stand up to certain prejudices be it involving religion, homosexuality, social status, or just their own identity and who they are now becoming. It's great how the story is staying in current times, it would be really something if our great actors, singers and authors and such were vampires just living among us using their special talents. A very cool series and I can't wait for the next one. I hope it will be on Audible close to the same time as the book release.
Passionate lover of literature. Give me a good read and a passionate narrator and my money or credits are yours!
Zoey not only lied, but cheated on her boyfriend. She gets caught and then has the testicle fortitude to tell the injured party (Her boyfriend) that he owes HER an apology??!? WTF?!?
"What you saw was me making the biggest mistake of my life, he was using me." So because the guy had ulterior motives somehow that excuses her from blame, and make Erik's anger inexcusable? OH PLEASE!!! She made a bad choice and now she has to live with the consequences (Which poetically enough puts her in the skankville she once case Aphrodite in.)
Erik owes her nothing but a B-slap. If Blake had been a good guy, she would be "Oh get over it!" to Erik, but because she was 'seduced' by an agent of evil she thinks she is owed an apology for Erik being upset. This isn't sci-fi, or science fiction. This is the laws of physics turned upside down and backwards. Zoey has become an awful primadonna, who feels entitled to things she herself would NEVER give. Had she caught Erik working the shuffle with Aphrodite, and was upset about it how do you think she would react if Erik said, you owe me an apology for being upset about it.
The new narrator is also a major distraction and ruins the continuity. I enjoy the other characters, and again what is up with Zoey falling in love with every Tom, Dick and Harry? I seriously hope she is the reincarnation of the clay lady and must sacrifice herself to trap the demon.
Also Amazon and the Authors have sent notifications out that these books are not meant for the 9 years and up they are advertised as. So it would be nice if Audible could put it where it belongs and get rid of the "This is audible kids". I do love the supporting case, they make it worth it, since Zoey has become drunk on her own power and entitlement. I hate to quit a series but if she keeps acting like this, I will be forced to. It is one thing to be flawed, another to act as Zoey has.
Horrible Horrible!! Love all the books up to now however how could you have such a awful narrator I MEAN AWFUL! You have Zoey going from sounding like a normal young women to now a young girl, Come on!! She sounds like she is 10 years old. I am so disappointed. I can't even get into it now. I wasted money on this audio don't even want to listen to the next book now nor the next. How could such a mistake be made...DISAPPOINTED!!!! Get your other narrator back and redo this books maybe I will listen to your books again. I want a refund!
