I was so enjoying this series and then along came book 4 with the children reading .
I have so lost my interest in this book, how could you be so stupid to write a wonderful series and then on book 4 let children read it. !!!
i couldnt get through this book, the reader drove me nuts she was so anoying... buy the book and read it, it's better
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.
